Daily reminder that girls don't like guys who wear too much cologne or tries too hard spraying themselves 3-5 sprays a day.

M, 25, summer/allround daily wear,
maybe something in the direction of diptyque/byredo or so. price up to 150€
my rotation so far is cdg blue encens & wonderwood for winter, and margiela untitled in summer
pic is a feeling that’d be nice. chill, sophisticated, /fa/
i wear mostly black with a little rick so it can be „different“ but not too outlandish or aggressive (its summer after all)

i always think i’d enjoy something forest-y/natur like but so far everything ive tried has been disappointing.
same with ocean scents, sound good in theory and i’d be interested if its not mall-adg-tier. sampled sel marin which was better but also disappointing. so maybe thats just something that sounds good in my head and should be ignored…

Have you tried many vetiver scents? It's hard to pin down, as it smells like grass and wood and earth and roots. Here are a couple summer favorites:
Guerlain Vetiver
Encre Noir Sport

Well ... for marketing sake it kinda is, if the design speaks to someone they might be interested in its content

but also if you ask me bottles should look like what the perfumer wants to evoke with the fragrance. but if you look at dior and chanel their bottle designs are very minimalistic yet their fragrances are supposedly intricate. in their case they want to appeal to the masses and dont want to be too specific in what it should evoke.

so i think it depends on your clientele. if your fragrances are niche I suggest you have more intricate bottle designs, and if you want to have generic designer-like frags you should have minimalistic design. it's kind of a shame that some niche perfumers choose to have simplistic bottle designs.

unless you sell to the same 3-4 loyal people i think it's kinda necessary to have a bottle design. not that it should bother you, fragrance is art.

it's true that scents are really attached to memories and designer houses are careful with that, going the safe route with minimalist bottles and art, but if you do it right it wont change how the customer perceives the smell of the perfume, and if anything, enhance it. if you think drawings arent safe enough change the shape and color of the fragrance and so on.

im not really sure why byredo chose to have such a boring bottle design. ultimately it doesnt matter at all but for marketing sake it kinda is. also it looks good.

Frankly, other than the synthetic cut grass note, I really can't pick any others out. It's just a fresh, ambery, white musky borderline aquatic accord that is also synthetic but I like it a lot and it performs like gangbusters. Probably easy to over apply if you go more than 3-4.

>> No.12416383

>>12416287
Not the anon you were looking for but

I do 2-5 sprays, depending on frag, atomizer, occasion, etc. Most frags 3-4 sprays. 1-2 on chest for nice wafts from collar all day, 1 on back of neck, 1-2 on forearm(s). Avoid proximity to nose, i.e. face/front of neck, to prevent olfactory fatigue. Under clothing mutes projection. On hair/clothing holds on to top notes longer.

Best to test application in more casual situations and best to ask others about projection, rather than rely on your own nose. And always err on the side of caution if unsure in more important occasions.

>"Take this gentleman," he said, discreetly motioning to a man across the room. "Dressed in a showy way, a little loud, confident—I’m going to guess he’s wearing an oriental fragrance. People who like these types of perfumes tend to be a bit larger-than-life." And why was this? he asked, stabbing the asparagus on his plate. "Because usually underneath they’re a little insecure. When you come across vanillic scents, whether the association is with ice cream, cake, or biscuit, the vanilla subconsciously makes somebody feel very secure. We learn that security is a kiss and a treat. So the big character, who inside is vulnerable, loves these very large perfumes, because inside it feels like a safety thing."

Strange feeling.

and it it's not too busy, chat up the fragrance person. They tend to be friendly and knowledgeable. Might even hook you up with some samples.

I am not a scientist.

But, I stuck my new digital weather station in my wall-mounted medicine cabinet in the bathroom and did a little experiment to see how much the temperature and humidity changed while taking a shower. Some people say it's a bad idea to keep frags in there as the temp and humidity vary widely enough cause frag degradation.

It was 74ºF and 50% humidity in there before I turned on the shower. I'd normally never do this when it was this warm, but to prove a point, I also turned on the heater and closed the door and took a leisurely hot shower. When I got out, the bathroom was like a freaking swamp. It felt like 85ºF easy and pushing 95% humidity, as there was lots of condensation on the walls. The weather station in the cabinet read 76ºF and 66% humidity. Considering all the frags are in thick-ish glass bottles, I doubt the actual temperature of the juice inside changed by a tenth of a degree, if that. And also considering all of the bottles are sealed at least watertight, or more accurately alcohol-tight, I'd assume that there was zero moisture getting in to any of them.

So, after many years of keeping vintage and niche frags in my bathroom medicine cabinet with zero damage, I will continue to do so. Thank you.

OK, if you expose a 100ml bottle of EdT to a 1-2º increase in ambient temperature for 10 minutes, how much of an increase of temperature do *you* think the liquid inside the bottle will experience? Let's just say it instantly changes in proportion to the ambient temperature. It's still only 2º...

A few weeks ago I recommended someone Tocca's Florence in one of these threads and it made me want to try it again, especially for this time of year. I ended up buying a rollerball today. It is such well-composed floral scent. The white florals play well with the opening fruit notes (primarily bergamot and apple for me) and the drydown is a warm, woody musk. It's a perfect scent for the days at the beginning of spring, when you can wear bare your shoulders in the afternoon but need a coat at night. It's feminine without being girly and it feels mature without being old-ladyish.

I'm 27, looking for a new summer/spring and also fall/winter smell.
I'm pretty normie core when it comes to style/clothing and have a minimal wardrobe and usually dress for the occasion.
Previous fragrances I've enjoyed a lot are Burberry London, YSL L'Homme,Terre D'Hermès and Wood rocky mountain.

My problem is that I think only D'Hermes and Wood actually lasted longer than 3-4h on me. Would prefer something that lasts long but doesn't project too much unless invading someone's personal space.

guys help, I'm going on a date for the first time in a few years, nervous and can't settle on a frag. casual nighttime drinks, nothing fancy. I'm not sure what's appropriate in these situations. this is what I currently have on hand:

ck one
versace eros
byredo gypsy water & bal d'afrique
ds & durga bowmakers

Something you would describe as 'seductive'. Generally these are more on the sweet side of things. You also don't want something that projects too much.
>any specific recommendations
Dolce and Gabanna The One EDP, La nuit is a super good date scent and probably mine of choice, just carry a travel atomiser to refresh throughout the evening. You could potentially even use Aventus if you wanted to make an impression, that's super sexy too.

Ok so this is just identical to CDNMI. The opening of aventus is 100% the same as 5 minute old CDNMI to my nose, I wouldn't be able to tell the difference in a blind test. The dry down of aventus is also so close to identical to the dry down of CDNMI. Only difference I can pick up between these fragrances is the very first blast of CDNMI gives a bit of a strong citrus smell but after 5 minutes they are THE SAME fragrance. Also maybe aventus is a touch sweeter, the pineapple is more candy-like. There isn't a chance I'll be getting myself a full bottle of aventus any time soon, especially with the price about to go up and bottle size go down. Oh and CDNMI performs better.

I don't care what you think of me personally. I just want anons to avoid wasting $30 on what I personally found to be a disappointing perfume. CDNMI gets discussed in every single general, and I'm sure many anons throw money at Armaf based on breathless testimonials such as yours, expecting that it will match the Creed and save them hundreds of dollars. I must offer these anons my dissenting voice because the reality is that CDNMI only smells like Aventus on complete drydown (hours plus), and that the opening is beyond foul. "Five minutes then they are indistinguishable" is nonsense, and as you gain experience with Aventus and its several clones you will come to regret parroting the Armaf hype so rabidly.

I don't think so. The film has a fairy tale quality about it, which makes any connection to modern perfumery an extremely tenuous one for the uninitiated. You may as well be watching a witch mixing a spell in her cauldron.

It's harsh, loud and overpowering, definitely not a scent for dating unless you want to be remembered as the cologne guy. I'm not sure if there's a more overrated frag than that. The only good thing about it is that it lasts like a motherfucker.

The guy above mentioned CK One, now that one is an all purpose scent, it's kinda weak, cheap but all over good, it would be a lot better for a date than Aventus.
