We can't be talking about the same fragrance.yep, already bought it, so the listing is gone.
interesting. what's the scent profile on that one? it long lasting?Bayolea from Penhaligon's is my favourite of the newer colognes for men. They have too many beard grooming oils in this range though, which is a sure sign it's being marketed towards the bearded hipster wonders one still sees walking around towns in search of a steam punk antiquarian thrift shop.
Just got in samples of the new MFK scents, Petit Matin and Grand Soir.
The Matin is holy shit citrus overload.
The Soir is a typical for MFK soft vanilla and labdanum. Quite nice.
there are quite a few REALLY good Tom Ford scents for men, so I'm not sure how he got lumped into the mall brand group.Considering that close to all male colognes are bought by females - most definitely. Guess that also explains the success of Tom Ford, she liked pretty much everything they had. But they were out of bottles for decants.
I see what you're getting at. Personally, I'd consider him a cut above, but he is becoming ubiquitous these days.Because his scents are EVERYWHERE, though in my case that is confined to airports and the local luxury department store. And there are 500 variations, there must be like 10-15 tobacco scents alone from Tom Ford. Just like Hermes etc scents, some of them might be really good, but they are 100% adressed to the mass market. Sort of like a luxury mall brand, together with Creed and whatnot.
decided to sample this and have gotten 2 compliments from ladies already. this iso e shit is like shiny things to a magpie.I got quite used to AdP Quercia, mostly because I don't have any real winter/fall colognes. Though I still consider it quite bland, but it's nice. Probably the Iso E, as I indicated earlier, because my girlfriend really really really likes it. So much, that she got me another sample.
There is a thread on basenotes (I think), where someone mixed Iso E Super in a very high concentration with alcohol. Creepy things started happening, e.g. he/she got hunted down at the mall by people following the scent trail across stores (!) and suddendly popping up out of nowhere with "hey you what's that smell" and shit like that. Seems a bit like from https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perfume_(novel)decided to sample this and have gotten 2 compliments from ladies already. this iso e shit is like shiny things to a magpie.
