As you could see the power spread on the American quarter, that is the quantity required to spread the fragrance for 24 hours.

Thanks for the share trammway. Could you please describe the scent. Is it close to sandalwood, sweet, fresh???
Also would you classify it as masculine, sensual, classic???
He he i don't know what to make out of this scent!

Personally, I and everyone I know felt this to be an offensive overdose of a 'Smell' not a 'Perfume'. This is only 'mine and all the people I know' opinion. Tastes are subjective. Again, personally, I cannot stand the smell of this 'wonderful' TN product. As rightly said by tramway, it only takes a milli micro gram extra (which effectively means even a dab) to make the others in a non AC room to run as far away as possible, imagine in an AC room then.

In my definition, it is not a perfume, but a human retardant, maybe not all humans, as always subjective. Of course, if anyone's body odour is worse than this, then it is a perfume for that person, not for the others in that room.


P.S.... I have seen the worst side of this parfum, hence this opinion. Peace.

Asish22,

This is something like most condensed sandalwood smell

Esteem_lover,

You are absolutely right, the amount and application makes this one fragrance or fear gun to person next you.

When you apply it on wet body it compensates the smell before you out of your bathroom and stays in limit.

I made my warning on my post about overdose, all it takes some one to dilute the right micro amount and enjoy the best part.

Taste and fragrance are subjective so no conclusions.

After buying a fake from a good outlet, I am in need of another good perfume. This doesnt even last for even a hour. Let me know any reputable genuine site or shops sell only genuine perfume.

Vijay

Even I'm in search for the same. Don't really trust perfume2order somehow. Ordered Dunhill Desire blue & somehow the fragrance doesn't seem to last a lot. Then again I could be wrong. Thinking of trying sites like flipkart or tradus this time around.

Do post in any suggestions for online portals that sell only genuine stuff.

Thanks

I have bought Azzaro Chrome from Health and glow outlet for 3.5K . 1 spray eith side on the collar and 1 spray under arm . Exactly the first quarter bottle (25ml) the fragrance is beautiful it will last even when I go to bed. Now its not even few hours. Smell looks bland and many notes are missing. I couldnt figure out exactly but something is a miss. I work in an IT company, sweat wont be an issue.
The best use of Landmark and other similar shopping marts is for testing perfume and order online who sells genuine stuff
Regards,
Vijay

I have always liked the smell of ittar/attar, but have no idea about how to go about buying them. As in what flavours they come in, how they are supposed to be applied. Can anyone help me out here. Also any shop recommendations for the same in Delhi would be great.

Some of my favourites:
Carolina Herrara Herrara for Men
Carolina Herrara Aqua
YSL Pour D Homme
Burberry London
Bvlgari MAN
Bvlgari Aqua Marine
Bvlgari Soir.

Most frequently used Men's Cologne's:
1. Aqua Di Gio
2. Davidoff Cool Water
3. CK One
4. Paco Rabanne Pour D Home
5. Ralph Lauren Polo Blue.

Personally liked the Aqua Di Gio very much initially, but then i found it too sweet by the end of the day.

Each one behaves differently on different skin types, so best to try out on your skin rather than the sample papers !!

Those were my few cents...

People more interested can access www.fragrantica.com to learn about perfumes .

Cheers

Was shopping for EDT and came across the following prices:

Davidoff Cool Water EDT - 125 ml

Flipkart - 2370 /-
Ebay.in - 875 /-

Can ebay be trusted in this case ?

On ebay it says unboxed..
