For a second fragrance purchase, should I go for the Bleu de Chanel or Dior Homme? I'm a male.

I have a bottle of Terre d'Hermes--absolutely beautiful IMO--already, so I'm hoping if I have the TDH and one of those two then I'll have a decent enough collection. So, between Bleu de Chanel and Dior Homme, which one is more versatile? And, what vibes do they give off? Anything else I should know about either of them? Cheers.

>> No.13547188

Instead of DH get DHI and instead of that get valentino uomo intense so you have something sweeter for winter and terre for summer. It gives a feminine vibe while still being masculine and loved by women

>> No.13547198

Every fragrance collection should have a Bleu. I would suggest the Eau de Parfum or the Parfum as contrast to the Hermes.

to be fair beaver taint is quite dense and requires an attentive nose for analysis, if youve ever smelled the taint of a real, live beaver you'd understand it has richly layered aromas that remind one of fruits, leather, magnolia, juniper, and vetiver. now some fragtubers avoid actual deer piss, and even many hunters prefer synthetic formulations, but i like to apply actual fresh doe urine to my neck and pulse points to sharply contrast the rich beaver taint essence and barnyard-bandage smell of oud

Ok, the majority of people seem to think those frags are short-lived even though there are so many variables it's laughable. Olfactory fatigue, spraying too little, activity level & sweating, or just being a retard in general can affect performance. If I can still smell The One EDT after an 8hr work day without reapplying, then there's obviously something wrong with the way others are wearing it to get such poor performance.

>> No.13552966

Those scents you named still have garbage longevity though. Telling others that they can expect a full workday of performance out of D&G The One is just bad advice given that the vast majority of reviews specifically cite poor performance as its major flaw. This general is meant to help others choose their fragrance purchases wisely, not to make excuses or apologise for certain products' inadequacies.

>> No.13552982

his point is that proper application and environment, among other things, are more important factors to consider when judging performance than the juice itself

>> No.13552996

That's absolutely untrue though. If you have to jump through hoops and select the right day to get passable performance out of a scent, it's not a good fragrance. If an EDT or EDP is worth your time it should offer eight hours of solid, low effort projection across a wide range of conditions. Don't buy weak juice and don't encourage others to. There's always a better performing alternative out there.

You can find hundreds of accounts online complaining that The One has trash performance. They're not all hiveminding, and there has to be merit to that overwhelming volume of opinion.

Guys, lets take a fucking step back here. This shit is 1/10th the price the price of GIT, was made by the same nose, the scent remains aqueous and lively for the entire time (as opposed to Tres Nuit which turns dry and powdery after the opening), and it's pretty much the first violet leaf/ambroxan bomb in history. I got a bottle for like 25 bucks. Take a break from the memes for a second to appreciate a true classic.

When I buy a huge order of samples, 1 ml, 2ml if I'm really adamanemt but I can usually tell if I want something after 1ml

I buy a lot of 5ml for individuals I think I'll buy later, or the largest up to 30ml (which is a split) if I want it but don't think I'll wear it enough. Limits me from expanding my collection faster than my wallet can support. If I finish a 5ml quickly, then it means I should buy a fill bottle.

Prada, Amouage Reflection, and Mugler Cologne. Tell me about them.

>> No.13554979

Prada - Extremely clean and fresh. Lots of iris. Modest projection, reasonably long lasting for a clean fragrance. Very linear though.

That’s not Amouage, it’s Versace Pour Homme. A really nice Citrus fragrance, good for summer days and nights. Not great performance though. Four hours for me.

Mugler Cologne - I tend to use it when I jump out of the shower and don’t plan to go anywhere. It just continues that clean smell and puts a smile on my face. Sometimes if I need to pop to the shops or run a quick errand I’ll spray it on to smell clean. That said, Prada L’Homme is good for that too. Mugler Cologne isn’t one you put on for performance exactly. You can often pick it up reasonably cheap and for 100ml it will last a while. I think it’s one everybody should own because there’s a beauty in its simplicity.
