Luca Turin liked BdC though

Bleu de Chanel eau de parfum (Chanel) citrus fougère
Chanel’s greatest achievement is perhaps their miraculous ability to live
two separated-at-birth lives that do not intersect: one spent lounging in the
back of a long-wheelbase Bentley, the other hanging on to a ceiling strap in
the evening commute. Bleu de Chanel brings them perilously close
together, with a composition that borrows shamelessly from Cool Water and
Light Blue, yet manages to wrap all these bad-boy clichés in a disarming
cloud of refinement. If there is a masculine perfume that embodies the
symmetric aspirations of the poor and the spoiled, this is it. LT

Fougere bengale vs Cuir cuba intense
I can get 50ml of fougere bengale for 70€ or cuir cuba intense 100ml for 100€, blind buy since no samples for either of those here. Looking for an intresting spring / summer scent.
I could also get Corsica Furiosa, Eau De Gloire, Mal-Aime instead, similiar price to fougere bengale, but based purely on note breakdown I feel like I would enjoy fougere bengale the most.
Does anybody have any reference points for those frags?

The fragrance I dislike the most from Parfum D'Empire is likely Fougere Bengale and while Mal-Aime is not as egregious, it is not far behind. Both have this incredibly herbaceous and aromatic profile that resembles curry/curry leaves, I don't know exactly what it is, I find that Maruyama has it too (and is the worst fragrance out of the three), perhaps Angelica or Camphor (what Parfum D'Empire have in their Hay accord perhaps?). I would personally avoid those two at all costs. Its a shame because in the deep drydown (only on a tester strip like a day later) you find that there's a beautiful fougere core to FB but the fragrance is ruined by this borderline comically stereotypical interpretation of "bengale" that is tacked on top, smells astringent, salty and like an indian restaurant, just terrible. If you do like all of this then good for you but personally I would never wear this or could see this worn by anyone at anytime. I find the positive reviews for it headscratching, I cannot imagine anyone having that shit as their signature/daily warm weather frag.

I never said that was my goal cretin. Pay attention to the threads before shitposting. I got a sample a while ago and said it was good but not that great. The other day I listed some frags and asked people what to wear. People liked Tauer 2 but I was edgy and said fuck that. I wore it today and that's just what happened at the store so I wanted to give Tauer fans some props. Other than that I wear encre noire, terror & magnificence and a city on fire. No bitch has ever went crazy over those and I don't care. Bitches only like basicass famous fragrances they see shilled in magazines or social media.

I tried all 4 again. Fougere Bengale I stand by what I said 100%. Mal-Aime I take back what I said entirely, this is legitimately great and I don't know why I disliked it the first time I tried it (and hence never came back to it). All I remember is that it reminded me of Maruyama and I despise that fragrance so the aromatic face of Mal-Aime must have induced a PTSD flashback or some shit. Eau de Gloire I think is fantastic, incredibly rich and sophisticated but also light, a mix of bright and dark tones with a great anise and immortelle duality at its heart. Corsica Furiosa is not my speed, better than Fouger Bengale but it is incredibly earthy and dirty in the literal sense, behind that when you smell it more is a fantastic greenness but whenever I come back to it after giving it some time I get a facefull of dirt.

Examples of what I've tried and liked
Musc Ravageur (not that musky)
Bortnikoff Musk Cologne
Vintage Eau Sauvage
The drydown of old Creed frags, I know that's more ambergris than musk but I still like it.

I'd like a musk fragrance for spring weather, something that's got a mix of woods and musk if possible
Budget I'd like to keep under $300 per bottle so I can grab more than 1

Different anon but no, Mal Aime is a fragrance that proves smelling photorealistic and natural doesn't mean good. It smells like jamming your face in clippings from a weed eater.

Sadly haven't had a chance to check out BeauFort or the new malle. I'm smelling the mal-aime and I can understand the prior impression I had of what might be angelica/camphor/curry leaves but I think its very subdued and just a texture to add depth in the background to the main nettle idea. I have a more positive impression of it now but still think I would not wear it.

>> No.17553144

Ic, and I assume you have not tried cuir cuba intense either right? As for both fantom V and synthetic jungle they both have very vegetal green thing going on, along with pungent white flowers drowned in stagnant water. Both are quintesential florist smells. I have seen some people comparing mal-aime to those, and if thats how it smells I wouldn't be really intrested in a full bottle since I already have fahtom v.
Eitherway, thanks for help. appreciate it.

And a guide for you anon:
1. tester strips fucking lie, skin is king.
2. moisture and skin PH is what makes the fragrance last longer and project more.
3. you can test 4 frags at a time if you properly space them on your arms.
4. do not feel awkard about testing designer frags at perfumeries, they exist for a reason and going in without buying anything just to spray shit on your arms to test it is absolutely fine.

>tester strips fucking lie, skin is king
can confirm. maybe if a store has so many things you want to try, use tester strips to eliminate until you're down to 4
I would then add that after you've tried some on skin, next time you're at the store spray only that one on both wrists and maybe the back of your neck. walk outside, let it bloom off your skin and take a whiff

Acqua di Gio Profumo. Has been the one in this city for a long time. Other than that, I smelled a lot of blue frags at a trade fair, but not in the city. Some zoomer was wearing Y EdP and it was obvious.

For me, it's pic related. And he reminds me of a lot of people I know who all "dress" like that.

Everything from Chanel, Dior and Guerlain. Egoiste, Platinum Egoiste, Antaeus, Pour Monsieur, Homme Intense, Homme Parfum, Sauvage Elixir, Jules, Dune, Heritage, Habit Rouge, Vetiver, L'Instant pour Homme (Bleu de Chanel, Sauvage, Allure Homme Sport and flankers, newer Guerlains are also viable options). There's everything in there, from barbershop to sandalwood over florals to chypres and modern fougeres.

Montblanc Legend Eau de Parfum. I'm that basic at the moment, not feeling adventurous at all.

I'll stay with Dior.

Pastebin in the OP general for snice cheapies, I guess. Flowchart and Chart for more expensive stuff.

It's similar enough, with a slightly different opening. The drydown is there, performance is acceptable. I get more out of Pure Havane, but with that stuff in my collection I'll probably just keep PH for 10 years and then sell it for a million bucks.

>pleb thinking
He's right tho, GIT is just an incomplete Cool Water but made with good ingredients and a bit more violet rather than the iris in the calone opening. Aventus Vintage had a masterpiece note of ambergris that was sadly chopped down every year until nothing was left.
Kurk has this notion to make something "unique" out of shit that was already common and available, even tried before. Narciso Rodriguez EDT has all its ingredients already available in stuff like Grey Flannel and girl musks yet it seems he was the only guy to try and mimic an artificial but strong wet earth scent with the ozonic violet and a earthy patchouli. Sounds so obvious but it is there.
Maybe his thing is not so much being original but being able to try and do it, kinda how the legend goes Fahrenheit was an accident despite its notes being an obvious concept (leather jacket, gasolinesque note, generic manly freshie profile = biker dude)
Vintage was a very nice scent.

The German fashion capital (not Berlin), but I smell most of them in business settings. Work has a few people wearing something. Trade fairs are basically guaranteed to be suit and possibly tie and everybody wears fragrances (unironically the only place where I've ever smelled someone wear L'Air du Desert Marocain and it was a woman). When visiting other companies, the bigger the company is the more likely it is that someone will be wearing something. Other than that, usually when I go shopping at the better places, although not always.

White florals/tuborose that gives a bitter very powdery scent akin to 60's/70's women makeup and talcums, incense and anise (or some other oriental thing in it) gives it another strong aromatic note that smells like old ladies' closet drawers or niche altar, some people call it "church" smell.
Then you have the fruits which are pungent due to being in between a funky cinnamon and an oily vanilla, along with a stale rose. It smells like a fine grandma.

Maybe Poison Girl but def not the real Poison, it's Opium but with white florals rather than spices.

>because "it smells like lipstick or make up"
>and I get it
You certainly don't get it because you insist upon making men wear it, they technically can but the classic western culture very closely associates it with THE makeup note, only shameless faggots would use it as a sign of pride
>More and more male oriented fragrances are using rose or white florals
More and more males are faggots, and faggots buy frags more often than normal men, what's your point? that penis is feminine because more city slicking males like it?
>It's 99% marketing
It is association via smell, if beer smelled like iris then for sure it would be a manly scent, but it isn't. Mind you i never said iris or white florals are bad (although i dislike the latter) but the brain works via past experiences and almost everyone has smelled their mom or their mother figure's bag and clothes, it smells like iris, some dude smelling like your mom's purse is bad news. Like a frag smelling like an indole bomb, it might be well blended but you think of shit.

Same, but you still get some of the endocrine disrupting effects just from inhaling.
I'm currently trying to sample some "clean" fragrance brands that are free of things like pthalates.
I'm looking at Dossier (clone house), Henry Rose, Ellis Brooklyn, Thorn & Bloom, and Atelier Cologne. All of these are apparently pthalate and paraben free, henry rose claims to not use any known endocrine disruptors.
Anyone have any thoughts on any of these?

Holy shit, nice trips
But almost all fragrances have chemicals in them, most notably pthalates, which are endocrine disruptors, they fuck with your testosterone.
In the last 50 years men's testosterone levels have dropped 50%, 1% a year. This is largely due to people using things with BPA plastics, things like non-stick cookware, and cosmetics with pthalates.
The research is pretty interesting. If you stop using pthalates, your T levels will rise, but if you have a kid while your T levels are low due to endocrine disruptors, your child will have a permanently lower testosterone.
It's thought that this could be a contributing factor to the rise of the alphabet people.
I'm switching. It's okay if I can't get all the niche kino shit, there's still great smelling frags that don't make me into a low test bitch, or I guess in my case turn me from a high T gentleman into a average T dude

Never seen that one, haven't smelled it so cannot say The apple is what makes it tricky because lime-mint-violet is pretty common as it is GIT/Cool Water territory.
By note count maybe, just maybe you can get by with Azzaro Chrome Aqua and Lagerfeld Paradise Bay, and just maybe because the lime/lemon got replaced with bergamot/grapefruit. The other options are Le Penguin Premium Blend but that replaces your apple with grapefruit, and Bentley Silverlake but that replaces the second fruit (apple/grapefruit) with pepper. YSL Y also supposedly has all your notes but also lots of other shit, so perhaps that can float your boat.
>better performance
From those i think only the Bentley one can do the job as Azzaro bottles are neutered, Lagerfeld stuff is gelded discounter box filler (sadly) and Ebin Penguino sacrifices performance for price.

As a side note seems like that grapefruit-apple-mint-violet is in several Jean-Claude Herault compositions which spikes my interests, seeing that he is the supposed successor of Pierre Bourdon.

Thanks bro
Bottles are 100ml, anything less is just fun pocket-size vials to cope with not buying the whole thing
>Only size available
Brands coping with the fact their full bottle might be worth too much. A 700+ bottle of Tom Ford now sounds even more egregious but a 350 one is cool enough for some reason.
Anything less than 75ml does not have the chance to integrate/mature well in constant use, by the time it reaches the best smell you are left with 10ml.

Lots of effort to cope with your bottlelet

>high amounts of natural components
Wrong except the citrus oils and that just depends on the part and maceration at the factory, for example lemon rind oil is very long lasting, same with bergamot, but oil based on macerated lime flesh then yeah that's going to turn in 10 years.
I have a "freshie" bottle that used oil of cilantro stems and it's performing as great after 14 years. Oakmoss also rarely turns unless exposed to retarded high temps and fluctuations.
>wastes space
It's a 100ml bottle dude, be real and accept your bottlelet. At least that other anon explained he just likes miniatures a lot.
>potentially going to get worse
Put your bottles in a box, a drawer, a cupboard. Place the damn thing inside a dry dark area, grab the frag and store it properly you silly willy.
