Which fragrance is a Hype-king or Overhyped?

...OVERHYPED: CreedOkay, they definitely smell good. But if a person pays € 150 he should get more than just "smell good". IMHO Chanel has the same quality for 1/3rd the price.HYPE-KING: many fragrances made by perfumer Annick Menardo deserve the hype.Examples:- "Bvlgari Black", with the famous rubber-like/plastic-like smell.- "Boss Bottled" (okay, not a hype but a favourite for many men -- and it deserves the good reputation)- "Hypnotic Poison" = a popular women's fragrance with almond. It's worth smelling.Menardo also made: "Potion" (weird amber) , "Body Kouros" (eucalyptus), "Au Masculin" (liquorice) and "La Collection Privée - Bois d'Argent"

Le Mâle Terrible - Jean Paul Gaultier
<mark>Sleuth</mark>Sleuth   26.01.2015 | Perfumes & Brands

How good is Le Male Terrible?

...Hi MV,One other thought that occurred to me is that Le Mâle also contains some herbs and wood, and maybe those ingredients make the vanilla a bit more masculine.But I think your explanation makes more sense, thanks!

Grey market Blues

...Damn that sucks.You could try www.checkcosmetic.net , though I've never tried it.Well I've never been really ripped off. But I did get one bottle that got me doubting because it smelled differently from a decant that I received earlier.On which site did you get the dubious bottle of Calandre?

Where to buy Ethyl Alcohol perfumery grade?

...I don't know but you can always ask an independent perfumer like Kerosene or Andy Tauer.

I want something that smells heavenly, mild & sweet.

...I'm not a lady, but I'll give some suggestions anyway:- "Coco Mademoiselle": a mild and good combination of orange and rose, though not very sweet- "Versace Woman": sweet raspberry combined with soft flowers. Some perfume vetarans might find this boring. But I think it smells appealing. And if your friend is not a perfume person (yet), then this might be the right thing for her.- "Jour d'Hermès": fresh citrus + soft flowers + smooth & clean musk in the dry down. It's not sweet but it's very mild. Hermès can be difficult to find, except online...PS. I see you're from Nigeria. That's cool, this forum is really international! What perfumes do women and men from your country generally like? I heard that people from different parts of the world like different fragrances.

Le Mâle Terrible - Jean Paul Gaultier
<mark>Sleuth</mark>Sleuth   24.01.2015 | Perfumes & Brands

How good is Le Male Terrible?

...A different question about "Le Mâle"...I found the Le Mâle deodorant in the bargain bin, so I bought it and I've been using it the past few days. That vanilla just smells so good!!My question is:WHY does the vanilla from Le Mâle smell so good? Normally I don't like vanilla. Is the vanilla maybe combined with another ingredient, that makes it extra appealing?

What is your "Holy Grail" of perfume?

...Thanks for your replies, and for the perspective on fougères. An interesting read for sure!By now I'm testing "Fougère Royale (2010)". It's no holy grail, but it's a 'distinguished' smelling fragrance that will be fun to wear and test further.If you wish to write about what your holy grail of perfume is, please do so!

rose orientals, please!

...I think "Brûlure de Rose No.13" qualifies as a rose oriental.

Geranium pour Monsieur - Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle

Suggestions for a fragrance with geranium?

...I like the smell of geranium: it's fresh, a bit bitter and formal, and sometimes minty. Nice examples are "Geranium pour Monsieur" and "Platinum Égoïste". "Ambre 114" also has geranium but I don't like how it combines with amber. But I don´t know any other fragrances that have a geranium note.Do you guys have any suggestions for fragrances with a prominent geranium note?

Suggestions for a patchouli-centric fragrance

...My favourite patchouli is "Patchouly Noir - Osmo / Patchouli Noir - Osmo": There's enough patchouli to enjoy the earthy patchouli smell. But there's almost equally as much amber, which balances the fragrance. It never turns into a patchouli bomb.I'm assuming you're not interested in "Givenchy Gentleman", "M7 Oud Absolu" or "Héritage (Eau de Toilette)"Good luck!
