Suggestions for a sweet cheapie for all occasions?

...I must say in advance that sweet, or business/office-safe perfumes are not exactly my track!However, suddenly the ideas came pouring out and I couldn't stop myself :) Some suggestions from my experience coming...Unjustified assumption, but I think this may be the closest match (how was the phrase... a crowd–pleaser?):"CK One Shock for Him" (cashmeran I see there, but ... maybe is worth the sacrifice to test once.)With more class and sophistication:"Aigner Black for Men" - discontinued but still easy to find"Salvatore Ferragamo pour Homme" - discontinued but still easy to find.And while we're in the same house:"F by Ferragamo pour Homme"A more safe bet:"Visit for Men"---"S.T. Dupont pour Homme""Azzaro pour Homme Elixir" - intriguing, surpassed my expectations"Avant Garde""Altamir""Silver Shadow" - not identical, but brings the same character as another creation from Kurkdjian - APOM pour homme, just a bit more unpolished, sort of alpha-version"Individuel""Rochas Man""Paul Smith Man""Molinard Homme II"Even if they are not good ones, are still a sort of ideas :D

Your Most Worn Perfumes

Re: Your Most Worn Perfumes
...Apicius:Actually, I would find it a good idea if we could automatically display this statistic to each other.Indeed, it a good idea, would be interesting.my statistic:PS. I see that I had not been thoroughly accurate and consistentin this top 16, at least three to five of the my most often worn perfumes do not appear - Hinoki by Comme des Garçons, "Oud" by Kurkdjian, also "Guerlain Homme L'Eau" and "Comme des Garçons 2 Man", "Versace L'Homme" - more than 20 times I've worn them for sure

Good-smelling cheapies are hard to find

...+ "Rose of Bulgaria for Men"Everyone would say: "no way so inexpensive to be a good one", i know, I know! - (here in Bulgaria it costs 6 euros) :P Yeah, we have pretty much roses here :)And it will be in a mistake.I was in skeptical frame of mind, even cynical, I would say. But only before you give it a try.I can not describe it better than Coutureguru did it in his excellent review, and there is no point even trying.I'll just say "not everything is money, friends, at least on Beauty" - Worth it more than the price presupposes.

Good-smelling cheapies are hard to find

...Over six hours - with high density and intensity, the base notes are there with a strong presence after 8 hours and more.Actually, it is too loud to me - two sprays max... any dose above and turns this density into unbearable, and longevity - annoying.

Your favorite classic Eau de Cologne?

...Just now I have gotten a bottle of "Original Eau de Cologne" by Farina Gegenüber - an old one, I think (not as shown here but green) in a nice wooden box with attached description in calligraphic lettering. Quite nice!I just wanted to ask - does anyone know how long ago was manufactured in this form? Anyway, will remain wondering whether this is his real aroma or over time something is lost. However, there is much beauty in it, mostly I sense a wonderful touch of neroli (I think) very gentle and ethereal (milder and more noble than in 4711, say) but, right now, nor notes, neither lightness I can't decide because I have already wearing a really powerful one.

Guerlain Ylang & Vanille

...I thought - what a fool you must be - to sell drugs, when you can sell perfumes with a more profit, at that - completely legal.Maybe the moral threshold for peace with itself is even lower

Wanted : herbal elixir

...Something like this: ''Gli Odori'', or not so...?I have not tested it personally, I've marked it in this category, just for private Info and entirely trusting of the article from Apicius.Unfortunately - discontinued, but I see that there are still offers, at least in eBay.

Fugliest Bottles

...- such a vulgarity, printed on one of the ugliest, pretentious, kitschy and clumsy bottle I've seen ever.Now, this is clearly what the company concerned thinks about its customers...quite offensive, but they obviously are hoping the buyers of the"commodity" will not grasp it anyway

The end of a love affair-Scents that have lost their magic ?

...Cruella:Skin chemistry doesn't exist, and it doesn't affect a perfume's composition or odor profile.We have two complex chemical solutions, one of which is variable, and individual. How do you think the interaction between them can then be always the same?

Good-smelling cheapies are hard to find

...All of mine are cheap, but one that can separate as salient among the cheapest (as I remember - about 15 €/100ml) is ''L'Atelier de Capucci pour Lui''A very dark scent - dark not in the sense of somber or grim but deep and temperamental; woody, leathery and resinous. Interestingly, he was able to work with any other fragrance that I've tried layering; and although is quite potent - without striving for dominance, just as applying a layer with dark filter in Photoshop (and just like there - often makes the other colors stand out better).

Welcome to Parfumo Research!

...:) We are both off-topic, but I think that at least the visual concept of Parfumo is very different from the Gypsy camp, to which resembles fragrantica ... with this whole nightmare of colored icons and elements impossible as a combination, existing somehow as if in nowhere... hanging in there, everywhere, and yelling "look at me, look at me" :)
