If anyone’s local to Knutsford, I’d recommend a small shop called Pulse of Perfumery. Went today as they are the only UK stockist of Simone Andreoli and I’ve been looking to get Malibu - Party in the Bay. It’s amazing and the shop has some really good stuff stocked.

Boring but still wear this as my standard. Love it, whatever season (don't care) and that it isn't too strong or OTT sillage.


When you smell super strong aftershave in a lift / meeting room / or walking down the street it is awful. Might just be that I recognise it but CDG2 smells so overpowering on others.

Ofn but terre d'hermes parfum smells great the Eau de Toilette is not as Good though. Creed Green Irish tweed is classic, everyone bangs on about aventus but it smells like pineapple juice to me. 

As anyone tried Tom Ford Ombre Leather?

Yeah tried ombre leather, smells like my couch when it was new. So if you like a deep leathery smell go for it.

The one I posted at the top of the page is perfect for Summer. It’s the best thing I’ve smelt for a long time and actually bought a second bottle it’s that good.

Virgin Island Water is great too but just doesn’t last very long which is why I went for the Simone Andreoli as it’s cheaper and lasts longer.

Creed Virgin Island Water, yes, but not a total copy. I’d say a lot more citrusy to start with.

Picked up a bottle of the LV Cactus Garden a couple of weeks back - great summer scent.

Funnily enough I bought ombré leather in about mid Jan and I think I’m about half way through it. I really it - couple of compliments here and there too

I’ll check that terre d’hermes out. I refuse to even sample aventus, it’s so bait it’s unreal.

On another note (no pun) van cleefs Ambre imperial is luring me in, would get a bottle but not a summer frag at all imo

In order for me;

Green Irish Tweed
Silver Mountain Water
Aventus
Royal Out

The top two are superb. Will prob get Green Irish Tweed.

What postage option did you use from them mate? And how long did they take?

Silver Mountain Water is a favourite for sure

Margiela Jazz Club is a nice musky/spicy smell, but a bit wintery
