Psychedelic Love - Initio

Psychedelic Love Gorgeous narcotic bomb
I have been interested in Initio for a while but did not want to like them too much as they are quite expensive. After comparing multiple scents, Initio has become the top niche brand for my nose. Their absolute collections with the layering...

Acqua di Giò pour Homme (Eau de Toilette) - Giorgio Armani

Acqua di Giò pour Homme (Eau de Toilette) Ocean joy
Acqua di Gio was a big shock for me when it first came out. Immediately purchased it as a teenager when it came out in the 90s as I was completely mesmerized. Until then I had worn Chanel Egoiste, an odd choice for a teenage boy but that is what I liked,...

Fantastic boozy Cinnamon scent. Notes are similar to PDM Herod, but the booziness of Side Effect elevates it to a narcotic bomb/obsession.

Feel good sexy Buddha! This is a celebratory and uplifting cotton candy, like Oud for Greatness without its medicinal vibe and light wood.

Fresh-floral scent: grapefruit and Rhubarb are fleeting and rose takes over quickly. Nice and inoffensive but slightly dated for my taste

Amber and incense for layering: almost Goth / church like scent that add mysterious vibe and depth to Initio's Absolutes or Rehab

Very clean musk that I like to layer with Initio's absolute collections or other summer/spring lighter scents like Bleu de Chanel EDT
An over the top PIMP like ODB in the song "Got your money" must be wearing this. It's manly, tobacco and wood with just enough roundness.
A bitter orange and Jasmine blast that feels...more dated than classic to my immature nose. Nice scent but it doesn't excite me.

Head over heels in love. New signature scent. Many mention it as more feminine than masculine but I don't care. I can't stop sniffing myself

I really wanted to like it but it's not my taste. Opening is too medicinal. Pleasant sweetness does evolve but I don't enjoy wearing it

Classic but not dated. Structured but notes move freely to develop. An intoxicating, smooth, sexy and smoky gentleman's scent. Top5 for me

I am downsizing my collection. It is all because of Initio, I love them too much. It started out with Absolute Aphrodisiac. Then magnetic blends 7 and 8. I then had to have Rehab and fell in love with Psychedelic Love that became my new signature scent. I also fell in love with Blessed Baraka and Side ways.
I am not a blind follower, I did not care for Divine attraction nor Magnetic blend 1. I did not care for Oud for Greatness at all because of the medicinal smell but it is scary that it is starting to smell good. Still have not tried Mystic experience/high frequency/Atomic rose, either way I am spending too much money. But these scents get me SO excited wearing them, that my other "ok" fragrances just don't get me excited anymore. Having lots of fragrance is a joy as an enthusiast to sniff them whenever you desire but I do not care to be a collector; I want to wear them. So I am getting rid of scents that no longer excite me as much as Initio/PDM/TF do.

I continue to be a 39 year old smoker looking for perfect scents. Since the last post I have gone ahead and purchased both PDM Herod and Kilian's Intoxicated knowing that will piss my dear wife. I then went ahead and PDM Layton and Pegasus. I have to cut down on purchases for the rest of the year while I continue to seek my perfect Tobacco scents: side tracked with Coffee scents from Kilian's Black phantom, back to black and layering road with Initio Blessed Bakara+Magnetic Blends N1&7. I continue to seek and try the 80s powerhouse colognes when smoking used to be more prevalent. Any recommendation is greatly appreciated!

Hi Dan, I'm sorry I can't recommend you any from my own experience since I've been a non-smoker all my life, but found this forum thread per search: https://www.parfumo.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1757
Also, perhaps members that have recently reviewed fragrances of interest may be able to give advice if you ask them under their comments/statements.
At any rate, welcome to Parfumo, wishing you an enjoyable time here!

I am a 39 years old cigarette smoker who enjoys surfing in summer and cooking in winter.
I am looking for a perfect tobacco scent that please my nose, blends with my cigarette smell (Marlboro special blend 72 red) and doesn't offend my wife. Recent disappointments have been T Mugler lines, Dior Homme Intense 2020, Uomo Intense and Amouage Jubilation XXV. I was debating whether to buy PDM Herod or Kilian's Intoxicated, and bought both of them that I know will piss my dear wife. I am now debating on PDM Layton while I am waiting to smell Antaeus as I got a recommendation to try the 80s powerhouse colognes when smoking used to be more prevalent. Any recommendation is greatly appreciated!
