"At Christmas I no more desire a rose Than wish a snow in May's new-fangled mirth; But like of each thing that in season grows."

Quote from: badaids on June 02, 2021, 08:18:29 PMThere's an Ad on playing in You Tube for an aftershave called 'Gammon'. The tagline is something like 'This is what a Man smells like'. Is it for real or a pisstake?
QuoteIf in the male perfumery the Fougère Royale, created in 1882, was used for a long time by the rare men who perfumed themselves, as well as the Lavender of Yardley and Pour un Homme[nb]Still available for about £30[/nb] created by Ernest Daltroff in 1934, the real departure of the male perfume and the masculine lines is represented by Mustache[nb]There is a reformulation of this based on the 1948/9 scent but it might be better to try Eau Sauvage, Roudnitska's later creation[/nb] in 1948. It is Paco Rabanne pour homme [nb]about £30[/nb] which would know how to best exploit the vein, in 1973, by adding a deep dose of musk. At the same time, it created the footstool for the violence of male perfumes. The peak was reached by Azzaro pour homme[nb]About £30[/nb] in 1978, which supplanted the previous one at the top level of sales. The masculine notes follow one another, all strong, the American Aramis[nb]About £20[/nb], a leather note well composed although a little pharmaceutical; Drakkar Noir[nb]A sandalwood perfume available for about £15[/nb] in 1982, a great success in the United States as well as Polo; Xeyrus which fits in as best it can, and 1988 the year of all risks with the jostling of Bois Noir, Farenheit, Jazz and Ténéré.
Quote from: icehaven on June 02, 2021, 03:49:34 PMMy Mum got me a box of little bottles of various Dior perfumes from duty free years ago, and I particularly liked J'adore, but it's prohibitively expensive so other than the odd Christmas present I'm generally without any. I found a fairly good cheapo copy on a market stall a few years ago, very similar shaped bottle and called something like J'adonut or something (I'm kidding, can't remember what it was really called) but I've not seen it since.
Quote from: Chedney Honks on June 03, 2021, 01:18:35 PMI actually have a Drakkar Noir on the way today, just out of curiosity.

Quote from: Chedney Honks on June 02, 2021, 08:26:09 AMPartly, it was poverty. I didn't have the money to spend on smelling of anything other than deodorant. Partly, it was because I always found colognes and eau de toilettes a bit strong and overpowering as a teenager and young man (certainly because I put too much on, not knowing what to do, like most young people). Partly because I didn't have better quality stuff, to be honest, so it smelled a bit sickly and synthetic.
