Aramis by Aramis

Chanel Antaeus

Polo (Green)

CK - Obsession

Paco Rabanne Pour Homme

Antonio Puig Quorum

Creed Aventus (prefer more smoky batch though over citrus).



Dislikes:

Dior Fahrenheit (Gasoline?).

Givenchy Gentleman (Disgusting 100%).

Kouros (Urinal cakes, Don't understand where people get the sweaty locker room vibe from, to me it 100% smells like a freshly cleaned public toilets and samples it multiple times from different stores as I really wanted to try and get into this one).



I have just bought 3ml samples of and tried (but only once so far, so still in process of testing:

Tom Ford Oud Wood ( I thought it was generically sweet smelling, maybe not worth the price, dry down was a bit more masculine and nicer, could see a woman being able to wear this too).

Creed Virgin Island Water: Fruity, powdery, very unisex, maybe too feminine smelling? Defintely more of
a summery, clean fresh scent, probably wouldn't buy it.

Creed Silver Mountain Water, Same as above.

Creed Green Irish Tweed - Cool Water but maybe less harsh and synthetic smelling, would probably just by Coolwater and save the money.


Colognes I used to like but I used so much I am bored of and want nothing to do with anymore:

Terre d Hermes

Sauvage (2015)


Thanks.

I would say vintage versions of the following: Azzaro Pour Homme, Aramis Tuscany, Guerlain Heritage, Chanel Egoiste, RL Safari. These are, coincidentally, my current top 5 :)

Great sample selection, both regarding the consistency with your tastes and preferences as well as to rediscover- even if mostly in the current formulae that still remain anywhere from not bad to downright good- of quite a few stylish and timeless male classics
