...If you like spices in general and with a bit of a woody edge, then try Cartier Déclaration pour homme (original). It's unisex enough, I mean, spices are obviously for everyone. And it's a great balanced scent.

Neil Morris fragrance discussion

...I'm intrigued by the Flowers for Men series, though I haven't smelled any. Especially the 'flowers for men - LILAC'. This must have been a big challenge for the perfumer. Please, tell me what it smells like :)And if anyone feels like writing a review for 'flowers for men - ROSE', that would be much appreciated!

do cheaper scents require more applications?

...Mostly it doesn't depend on the price, but it depends on the fragrance. Citrus lasts only a little while. Spices last medium long. Vetiver (Cerruti 1881) can last a long time, that too depends on which fragrance. So it also depends on the fragrace 'note' (the kind of scent)In my opinion, 15-20 sprays is too much. In your case I would buy a travel sprayer to take fragrance with me, that way you don't have to apply 15-20 sprays in the beginning. Or just use a (scented) deodorant for the 2nd part of the day.Yes, it really depends a lot on the fragrance itself and on the notes. Online there are lists with fragrances that last a long time. Some of my favorites are:- Versace Dreamer (vanilla/tonka, affordable)- l'Eau d'Issey by Issey Miyake (clean, lasts more than 8 hours)- Le Male by Jean Paul Gaultier (pleasant vanilla + lavender)- Also 'Old fashioned' scents can last a decent while, try Davidoff Zino (rosewood + patchouli), look for a bargain.- If it fits your character, the super spicy Opium pour Homme by Yves Saint Laurent also lasts longer than 8 hours.

Best Smoky Burning Wood Fireside Scents

...I don't know what maple leaves smell like, but when you say maple, I think of the syrup and the warm sweet 'cosy' taste. I'm not a fan of sweet scents, but I did get the same warm and cosy vibe from the myrrh in Caron's Parfum Sacré. That one has bad longevity but myrrh is great! There's also Eau d'Italie Bois d'Ombrie if tobacco's still an option.

What is Your Favorite Le Labo, Which are you curious About?

...Since any and all feedback is welcome, I gotta say that I'm not a fan of this house because I don't like their musk. I'd focus on scents that are low on musk and that offer something other brands don't offer.

Similar Branding - Who had it first?

...Ambre Noir by Yves Rocher looks like... "The One for Men"

Decisions, decisions...

...I've always liked the idea of wearing something that is the opposite of the season. Maybe you should buy The Scotch Broom. It could be fun to wear it anyway.

Decisions, decisions...

...I haven't smelled them, but all 4 sound intriguing. I don't like liquorice (m.loup) and honey (wwdipis), and I don't know what broom smells like. I would gravitate towards Boisé. It seems like a great thing to have next autumn.Is there one scent that 'temps' you more than the others?

Which floral has most scent development?(is the least linear

...Thanks for the feedback C.C. :)Chamade sounds good too. I don't think I'm going to wear a women's fragrance that people will recognize, but I definitely want to smell it now!

Which floral has most scent development?(is the least linear

...Hello PBullFriend, thanks for replying anyway. Maybe I should have posed the question differently, because feedback on one or two would be nice too. But I thought you guys knew *everything* :)

Which floral has most scent development?(is the least linear

...hi,I want to order a couple of samples from different categories, including a floral perfume. And I'd like to pick the perfume that has the most scent development, i.e. the one that is the least linear. I like it when the fragrance changes over time :D I'm considering:- Caron "Parfum Sacré"- Annick Goutal "Grand Amour"- d'Orsay "Tilleul (1995)"Which one has the most scent development? Suggestions are welcome!

Underappreciated Fragrances - which are yours?

...Have you seen Sahbomnim's review of "Thallium Black"? It's a bit of a YouTube classic ;) link: always assumed (and am still assuming) that it is a spice+fruit+sweetness bomb. But when another guy reviewed it in a more serious way, he too said that it was good. I would like to smell it! Here's a spoof of the original review:

Which company has done the most damage to the industry?

...L.T.A., this is a fun topic!My vote goes to L'Oreal, because first they invent brilliant stuff and then go on to kill their own 'babies'.As for the sheer amount of bad and boring stuff, P&G gets bonus point from me.
