SOTD: Dior Sauvage x Paco Rabanne Invictus


Which cologne do you all prefer in the summer Creed Virgin Island Water or Creed Imperial Millesime?

Also I plan on getting the dua fragrances of both, just not sure which to get first because from the Creed samples I've received in the past, they both perform sorta weak for me. Not worth the retail Creed price and I've heard positive reviews and raves of the DUA fragrances.
Imperial Millesime is hailed as better than virgin Island water. If it wasn't for the sour dry down I'd bought some years ago. For reference aquatics and similar scents always leave sour notes on my skin during the drydown (like Aqua di gio). I'd try both and find out how they react.

And definitely sample Dua scents before you buy. They have some good ones but the ones you think you might like might be let downs.

Do any of you have experience with A* Pure Havan? Or whatever

I have many fragrances.. my usual lineup of colognes can get an average of 1-2 compliments on a slow day.. I feel like this Pure havan should be in my top 5 lineup... but im not sure if the ladies agree. I’ve never got a compliment from it... I apply it like I do all my other colognes... to me it smells amazing on me. any of you guys use this cologne and have similar results or different? I searched the reviews for the fragrance online and many guys are saying the same thing..

Question

Do any of you have experience with A* Pure Havan? Or whatever

I have many fragrances.. my usual lineup of colognes can get an average of 1-2 compliments on a slow day... and I remember hearing about Pure Mault... so I finally give in and buy Pure Havan and I love this fragrance... I feel like it should be in my top 5 lineup... but Iíve never got a compliment from it... any of you guys use this cologne and have similar results or different? I searched the reviews for the fragrance online and many guys are saying the same thing..
Idk man I rock cologne cause I like it and not necessarily for compliments.My fav colognes aka fav scents dont get many complements.Sometimes folks like loud stuff that just reaches out.

Pure havane is def a fav scent of mines and should be a compliment beast.I didnt get many tho.

It’s my fav out the mugler line up and I was the first person to talk about the scent here in this thread on page 1(lol). It’s a compliment magnet for me. But like dash said I wear scents for me and not for others, so I don’t really pay attention to compliment as decision to buy a fragrance.

The fragrance game is funny that way. Pure havanne does get compliments but what works best for you might not work the best for someone else. Plus just someone likes a scent doesn't guarantee they'll say something about it. Keep experimenting and see what works the best. And a scent you might like the best might not be your top compliment getter. For example my top compliment getters since i started in 2011 are ysl la nuit (pre-reformulation) and Paco Rabanne 1 Million (the opening always killed) followed by Channel Allure Homme sport and Issey Miyake (Original and Summer 09 flanker). I like pure malt and pure havanne more than all of those (og ysl la nuit is #3 tho) but they fell behind those in compliments. Plus it may just be the crowd you're around. Mugler opens up strong so it's harder to pull off sometimes.

In your case as above, wear what you like or if you have to find the balance of scent you like vs compliments which it seems like you already have done. Just don't put on something you hate hoping it'll get compliments. It's not worth all that lol

thats alot but I am all for testing.

Im also all for going to the store and testing for free and getting samples for the free if a store has that scent that you are looking for.

if not then you gotta do what u gotta do.

It may seem that way but the opposite is you buying bottles or higher priced decant and wasting hundreds of dollars because you hate them. Unless you can find them at your mall and sample them I'd buy the samples. From this group alone I'm sure there are folks who spent hundreds on samples (myself included) and don't regret it because we dodged those fragrances that didn't work

Yeah but how do we know those sites aren't buying the 20$ 10 oz bottle of knock of cologne and Justin it down to samples selling for 4$ a piece and the sample smell we get isn't the real deal

I havenít worn aventus in months. Aventus is not my favorite cologne in my collection, but if I had to choose one scent to wear forever aventus would be it. Just very versatile imo. Wear it casually or formally. Goes great rocking just a shirt and some sweats or a 3 piece suit.

True have to search for the best most reputable sites. They could do the same for online decants. I know folks in here can point you to the right direction. I mostly hit the mall or if they have an official site with samples I hit that up and order. I know most of the ones listed in here can be found in the mall or on niche websites. I'd take the risk of a sample vs a blind buy and not loving it

This is exactly why it became my signature scent fam.
I do still like other frags but I haven't found one yet that can compete with the versatility and stay smell amazing. And the batch variations make it even more versatile.
