I’m a self confessed “fraghead” (I believe is the term) so I decided to start a thread as I can’t seem to find one around here and there seems to be quite a lot of people out there who are really into their fragrances.

So there’s a quick set of questions if you want to answer but also set this up just for general discussion too.

The questions.

1. What are your top 5 fragrances?

2. What is your “signature scent”? (Your go to/most used)

3. What was the last fragrance(s) you purchased or were gifted?

4. How many fragrances do you own?

5. What was the first fragrance you ever owned?

Bought my first ever cologne yesterday.

Didn't realise you could get them so cheap, thought they were all $100+ for some reason

Chemist Warehouse is a good one to check out both in store and online if there’s not one close by.

Yes, thats where I went.

Didn't seem to be able to try any of them though.

Wasn't too bothered, just bought a reasonably cheap, good branded one.

Very nice!

I have the Versace Man Eau Fraiche too. Very nice fragrance, just wish it’s performance was better. Also nice for a cheap one is Gold by Jay Z. I’m not one for celebrity fragrances but I really like Gold. And it’s cheap, $30 or $40 from Chemist Warehouse. Sweet but fresh. Good on a cooler summers evening or a sunny winters day, which is usually the case in WA.

I find performance to be best on my clothes rather than my skin. Good longevity also. By $40 frag standards, it's definitely excellent!

Likewise. And also around the neck. I find Prada L’Homme lasts a little bit on my clothes even after being washed. Which is fine with me because I love that fragrance.

First time I spray Dior Sauvage, I did one spray on the wrist and could smell it days after, or maybe it was mostly just my imagination trying to get me to buy it. But I'd be a weirdo and start sniffing my wrist throughout all hours of the day for the next few days until the scent vanished completely lol. Been in love with it ever since.

Dior Suavage is an excellent scent, I remember the first time smelling it too, after one test I bought it. It’s probably been my most complemented scent so far. Unfortunately I’m running low so I haven’t been wearing it as much as I’d like, kind of just trying to stretch it as far as possible. But in atleast 6 months time I’ll probably have to get a new bottle. Couldn’t believe the negativity surrounding it at first, but now everyone loves it. The new YSL Y release has the same sort of negativity atm too but I don’t see that fading like it did with Sauavage. Although I agree that it’s a fairly generic fragrance and theirs nothing too special about it , I actually like the scent and for me YSL won’t top L’Homme Or even La Nuit De L’Homme. It’d have to be something pretty special.

Did you get your Creed from either of Myer or DJ’s? and did they have testers there? For whatever reason when ever I’ve been to the closest Myers or DJ’s they never have testers. I’ve smelt both GIT and Aventus before but only once a few years ago and I’d want to test it on my skin for a while before purchasing. Also not going to drop $300-$400 on a blind buy either.

I'm a big fan of YSL Na Nuit's scent, but the only reason I don't have a bottle is it doesn't seem to have much longevity for me.

I got a 30ml sample decant off eBay for around $80. I'm only using it for special occasions so it's going to last me a while but I am very much considering getting a 100ml bottle eventually haha. The only place I've seen them have testers is at the airports, which is where I've tested all the Creed lines.

Have you tried La Nuit de L’Homme L’Intense? or La Nuit de L’Homme Eau Électrique? I don’t remember if I’ve sampled L’Intense before but I did sample Eau Électrique a couple of weeks ago and wasn’t expecting to like it enough to buy it (because of the reviews) but it’s actually quite nice. I didn’t sample any on my skin because I had just sprayed some Prada L’Homme Intense on but I sprayed both LA Nuit de L’Homme and Eau Électrique on sample cards and the Eau Électrique lasted for quite a few days later. It has some bad reviews, not overly sure why, because it’s not like it’s a horrible fragrance.

In regards to the Creed, I found an Australian online store that sells mostly niche fragrances going by a quick look around the site. So I’ll probably order a sample pack from them. $40 for four samplers of your choice and they include 10 more that I guess they think I might like. Don’t really see the point in that. If you’re going to give me another 10 samplers atleast let me pick them haha.

I've never tried those. I like the YSL brand so I'll check them out next time I'm at the shops

I'm a noob and haven't tried much but I really like my Tom Ford Grey Vetiver and Terre D' Hermes.

I have Grey Vetiver, CDG Man 2, Bvlgari Black, Bvlgari Soir, and some sort of cheapo Calvin Klein that I just wear for work.

First I owned would have been something like a Lynx Africa aftershave Xmas present as a kid but maybe Joop! was the first one I bought.

Bump.

Bit of a pointless contribution given we can’t go out at the moment, but my staples are Paco Rabanne Invictus and Bvlgari Atlantiqve. I have another Ralph Lauren cologne I can’t remember the name of that I like to wear for work.

I also like to wear CK (have 2-3 gifted bottles) around the house and one weekends.

What is everyone else wearing at the moment?
