How good is Le Male Terrible? Le Mâle Terrible - Jean Paul Gaultier
Sleuth 24.01.2015 | Perfumes & Brands
...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?
Sleuth 20.01.2015 | Miscellaneous
...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!

Suggestions for a fragrance with geranium? Geranium pour Monsieur - Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle
Sleuth 20.01.2015 | Perfume Recommendations
...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
Sleuth 19.01.2015 | Perfume Recommendations
...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!

What is your "Holy Grail" of perfume?
Sleuth 18.01.2015 | Miscellaneous
...A sales assistant gave me a sample of "Fougère Royale (2010)" Extrait de Parfum. I was very happy with that because I always wanted to try it and because the extrait must be quite a precious juice. So this got me thinking about the "Holy Grail" of perfume.What is your "Holy Grail" of fragrance? Did you find it?

2 active perfumes by same house with exact same notes
Sleuth 11.01.2015 | Parfumo Research
...Hi,I'm not familiar with Inoui, but it's twice in the database because they are releases from 2 different years.The one without a picture is the original from 1959. The one with a picture (also see the pic at the bottom) is from 1976. That is very probably a reformulation. But I don't know what the difference is in terms of smell. I suggest you look at your bottle if it's similar to the one from 1976 or if it looks older.

Which were your personal favorites this last year?
Epimedes 09.01.2015 | Miscellaneous
...Sleuth:Some interesting scents, Epimedes. Is Léonard p.H. similar to Van Cleef & Arpels p.H, or rather different? Blend 30 seems like quite a bitter one... a bitter one, at least when I look at the notes....I never thought about it before, but Blend 30 does carry some resemblance to aromatic bitters. Sleuth, that was a good hunch! I have an old mini of vintage VCA pH but somehow I never reach for it, so I decided to give it a wear today. So... it's...
