    Fragrances bought from stores

    Just wanted to know when you guys shop directly in stores for fragrances, do you take the fragrances (obviously sealed) that you find on the shelfs or do you prefer having them taken by the SA in the drawers because of the light in the store ? Eventhough the frags are sealed and in their box...

    Habit Rouge L'extrait

    The search for a bottle of the L'extrait I suppose is next to impossible now. On my last email to Guerlain, they do not have any plans to reissue this concentration. Does anyone know where I can pick up decants of the stuff, or does anyone know if there is a bottle lying around somewhere to be...

    Homemade Vetiver Tonka

    Hey Guys: I recently tested out a sample of The One by Dolce and Gabbana. I thought that the sweetness of The One was quite similar to that of Vetiver Tonka. So I tried layering some Encre Noire with The One, and sure enough, it seems to be a pretty good copy of Vetiver Tonka. I wanted to share...

    Amouage Reflection Man & Creed Green Irish Tweed

    First off, I'm more than likely going to purchase both of these in the coming weeks. My question is this, when comparing the samples of both of these, they share a similar freshness to my nose. RM gets sweeter as it dries down than GIT, but in the openings they have a very similar vibe (at least...

    Looking for a GIT with a twist

    Guys/Gals, I have asked this question once before, a while ago. I wanted to ask again to see if I got some different answers. I am looking for something in the neighborhood of GIT, but with a woody twist to it. I know I may sound confusing, but something like the old Caswell Massey Greenbriar or...

    Can someone match the scent of this Shaving Cream with a cologne?

    Hi guys, I have started using a new shave cream. I love the smell of this stuff, and would like to find a cologne that smells like it. The shave cream is a Mary Kay product. It is named "mk men".

    So I am on basenotes since 2-3 years, probably reading since 3 years and a half and writing since 2 years and a half or something. Basenotes introduced me first to designers fragrances then to niche. I love this board and have learned a lot thanks to various very interesting contributors, who...

    aluminum-free antiperspirant?

    Hey guys, A little while ago I started a thread about how safe antiperspirants are and got some good answers which led me to do a bit of reading. So now I'm looking for antiperspirants that are: 1) effective (normal deodorant do as well of a job for me) 2) aluminum-free 3) cheap and easy to...
