Smells a lot like a the nivea shaving cream I used to use when I was 16. Tried Jazz club the other day not bad. Promenade (i think ) was alright as well.

Parfum smells like antiseptic to me. Think I'll go with intense. Thanks!

Oud is Bird repellant in my experience. Not 1 single complement all summer.

Like a lot of the Mugler atm. Malt and Smokey are both good.

I wouldn't recommend Blue de Chanel for now. It's a burst of citrus and more suited for summer imo. Sure is nice though.

Got this in Antwerp from Libertin Louison - small perfumer based out of there. His atelier is in Antwerp but you can just walk in and buy the stuff from him directly. Not sure if he has stockists in London/UK, but he has in Germany/US/etc and online.

He has a really nice range of perfumes, not too expensive either (75 EUR for 50 ML).
Really nice guy as well - used to be fashion designer, working for Margiela in 90's as well as his own line, but changed careers and went into perfume instead. He also did a perfume for Richard James which will be released next year.

anyone ever used solid perfume before? Bird got some diptyque stuff and it's good for traveling, never knew it existed.

Most fragrances don't come in perfume, especially men's.

Just noticed that MrP added some Le Labo ones like http://www.mrporter.com/en-lu/mens/le_labo/rose-31-perfume-oil-30ml/414321

edit: or is this not solid perfume.. not sure?

That's just perfume oil, Solid perfume refers to perfume in a non liquid form. Usually looks like candle wax.

Like this: http://www.diptyqueparis.co.uk/personal-fragrances/solid-perfumes.html

Don't recall seeing them for aftershaves though.

I got carried away at Liberty yesterday, replacing my Comme Man 2 and Comme x Monocle Hinoki, plus also bought a bottle of Comme Black. Amazing stuff, not sure how I overlooked it before. Smoke, pepper and wood with a streak of something sweet and synthetic. Descriptions say liquorice, which I get, but it's weirder than that. Perhaps not sugary or conventional enough for those fishing for compliments but good nonetheless.

Black has really grown on me, I hated it initially. And it smells much nicer once it's on the skin.
