Cologne-fi - Page 15

:sigh:

hello head fi... i like to smell good. here are mine as of today:



front row (left to right): bond no. 9 central park, maitre parfumeur et gantier garrigue, prada amber pour homme, vintage guerlain vetiver eau de cologne, gucci pour homme, burberry touch, tom ford amber absolute, tom ford italian cypress

back row (left to right): creed green irish tweed, original vetiver, bois du portugal, green irish tweed (hidden behind the garrigue bottle), green valley, millesime imperial, selection verte, santal imperial (running out!), green irish tweed (the one i take to work with me), cuir de russie, bois de santal, etat libre de orange fat electrician.

i'm a big believer in the flacons from creed, they can save you a lot of money in the long run if you like the particular scent a lot. so yes, scents are a passion of mine LOL. decants are good, too, to see if you want to invest heavy in a full bottle, or you can just use them straight away. i'm not a huge fan of millesime imperial but was able to get 100ml for about 65 dollars, which is a LOT less per ml than any of their spray bottles. not to mention the atomizer won't crap out on you...

Always had compliments on the Swiss Army cologne.

Swiss Gear, Lacoste Elegance, and Hugo Boss "In Motion" are my favorites.

I just got this as a gift. Tom Ford cologne. Anybody know anything about it?

Ever smelled Dior Eau Sauvage? It has some pretty raw/raunchy elements.

Nice collection! It's rare to see so many Creed bottles in one spot. What do you think about Fat Electrician?

thank you!

fat electrician is ok. the incense opening is stronnnnnng, and i dunno how i feel about it. the vetiverness is what really got me wanting to check it out. the vetiver is certainly there after the incense tapers down, and it makes for a very interesting drydown.

today my all time favorite sandalwood came in the mail:



bois de santal! i'm a happy man.

Yeah I have smelled Eau Sauvage several times (it's not sold locally by Dior, can you imagine the blasphemy?!) Perhaps I'm just not very good at separating one note from another, or have a narrow definition of raunch, but I never thought it was raunchy, I thought it erred towards the clean side. Now that I'm saying this, I had Higher a few years back and my mind's saying there's a tiny family resemblance, perhaps it's wrong... My overwhelming impression, more than the notes, was an old-school robustness, that quality-wise it's definitely a class or two above some of the modern stuff", which I also get with say, Terre d'Hermes. Sampling one too many spanish colognes will do that to you...

And I'm happy to report that I finally have a bottle of John Varvatos in my possession! I remember smelling it five years ago and was very impressed, but the price/availability hasn't been right since then. It was finally on sale, less than 1/2 the unit cost of Eau Savage for me, and I'm still suitably impressed. I'm glad I paid for this instead of some of my other picks.

I could sure use a whole bottle of Creed's Erolfa! So brilliant, so versatile.

Has anyone tried Dior's Fahrenheit Absolute?
post #222 of 362
i hear that fahrenheit absolute is supposed to be incredible. i wouldn't mind checking out a bit, myself.

Don't know if this has been recommended yet I use Terre d'Hermes
and have been using only it since it came out, women love it on me so why change aye.
In the past I used Gucci Envy, Chanel Allure, Gucci by Tom Ford I, and CK be(it was a gift -.-')

I've never worn cologne before other than when my mom would spray me for an important day when I was younger.

What colognes are a good base to start from? I noticed Aqua di Gio was mentioned many times and I'll check that out at the mall. Are there any others recommended that I could test at the mall?

High notes, middle notes, low notes, gotcha. I'll have to see how this works with my skin.

Thanks in advance.
