    Default Good Coverscents...

    visit-red-300x50PNG
    Hi guys,
    I

    recently sampled the new scent from Thierry Mugler called "B*Men" and it is a *really* good

    coverscent.

    Actually, Mugler's scent "Cologne" is also a good coverscent. Somewhere in both good old Thierry

    have notes that blend very well with mones.

    Agreed! A*Men is also quite a

    good cover scent, as the base notes will outlast all but the most odious -none OD. I haven't yet had a chance to

    sample BMen, but I hope to very soon, having been quite impressed with both A*Men and Cologne.

    Haven't sampled any

    Thierry Mugler products but have seen a lot of praise for A*Men on these boards. I can't help thinking that they

    don't use much imagination for their names though.

    A*Men
    B*Men
    Cologne

    I predict their next

    product will be called "C*Men" or maybe "Smelly Stuff."

    Seriously though, I think I'll have to sample

    some of their products. Are they available in department stores like Dillard's, or would I have to go to a more

    high end store for them? Dillard's and Mervyn's are as high end as it gets in these parts.

    Actually I think A*Men was

    supposed to be "Angel for Men" since the feminine scent from Mugler is called "Angel".

    What B in "B*Men

    stands for I have no clue...


    Btw, Try YSL M7 also, a very good coverscent. I used it for unscented TE and

    it blends really well with M7

    M7 is some truly amazing

    juice.. I picked it up before any local department stores did, and I absolutely fell in love with the stuff. With

    cooler weather coming, scents such as M7 and Envy (another deep and brooding scent) can be cycled back in with more

    regularity.

    If you see M7 Fresh, don't bother. I took a whiff of it, and commented to the salesperson that

    it was like a neutered version of M7. Minus the ginger and agarwood, what's the point of the scent?

    I

    tried some Cologne by Therry Mugler a few days ago...it's powdery smelling to me. It's Unisex but I think it

    smells a little more masculine than feminine. I'll get some eventually.

    Some other nice cool weather scents are Spark by Liz Claiborne and Diesel Zero Plus. I haven't

    worn Diesel with TE yet but Spark doesn't do a good job of covering the smell too well in my opinion. I could still

    smell it.

    One more post then its back to

    work :-D

    My ultimate summer scent: Silver Mountain Water by House of Creed. Even w/o pheros I get great

    responses

    My ultimate winter scent: PI for men by Givency. Can't help but to wear it seeing my last name

    has the same pronnuciation just spelled differently. Makes for a cheesy line when a woman inquires about what I'm

    wearing

    My ultimate all-round scent: Kenneth Cole Black. Clean Crisp and the scent that comes with

    Perception reminds me of it.........

    I was quite surprised by

    Spark.. I was moved enough to buy a .5 oz travel kit with ASB and shower gel. Understand this is quite a commitment

    for something as mass-market as Spark.

    SMW is indeed an excellent summer scent. Creed just has so many

    wonderful colognes it's tough to pick. The only one I've not been terribly enthusiastic about was Himalaya, which

    had a bit too strong of a rose note for my tastes. I like rose, don't get me wrong. I actually wear scented SOE

    with Rose EO once in a while, but Himalaya was just too much to make it into the collection.

    Lucky you I only know of one store in the Detroit area that

    carries Creed's line, and they only had green tweed (think thats the name) and SMW. I'm looking into ordering

    some more items from the House of Creed online if stores around here don't straighten up and get something in the

    higher end line of fragrances other than Vera Wang

    I believe Thierry Mugler's is

    called A*Men in England, but had to change it to Angel for the US due to copyright. I saw it on basenotes a while

    ago.

    Most of the colognes you guys are discussing are big on basenotes also, like M7, all the Creeds, Kenzoair

    Thumbs up A Recommended Fragrance Site

    Gents,



    One online retailer who carries several Creed fragrances with whom I've done business is

    ThePerfumeSpot.com (Link is set up to go

    directly to Creed page.)

    The times that I've ordered from them they've delivered in as little as two days

    using the cheapest shipping option, and have thrown in some interesting samples to boot. Their current prices for

    Silver Mountain Water, Green Irish Tweed, and Tabarome are about half of what one might see them selling for in an

    upscale department store. There MAY actually be places on the net where you can buy Creed even cheaper, but I can

    vouch for ThePerfumeSpot's reliability. And no, I'm NOT an affiliate!

    ParfumsRaffy has a better selection,

    but their prices are outrageous by comparison.

    Oscar

    My personal

    favourites:

    Daytime & office: Lancome Miracle & Benetton Sport
    Evening & night: Sander & Gucci

    Envy

    Unfortunately none of the above mixes well with Chikara. As a matter of fact, I have not come across

    any that does. It is perhaps best to use no cover scent at all with Chikara.

    Unfortunately The Perfume

    Spot doesn't accept international orders, but it looked interesting anyway.

    I

    think Weekend by Burberry's smells something like Chikara, once it dries. But I also think that it's best to

    wear Chikara without a cover scent. It's good enough on its own.

    And - Perfumebay.com has a clearance

    section with very reasonable prices. I got some Diesel Zero Plus for $17.95 not long ago.

    I think that B*Men is the

    last of this partucular line of scents from Mugler...

    Would you wear a scent called

    C*Men?

    LoL

    Has anyone ever tried from

    Armani- black code?

    the women just love that scent, its very vanilla and other things that i cant remember,

    but i do remember the department store sellout and no stock from girls buying that scent for thier boyfriends, guess

    its what they like, that we like to wear? we satisfy thier narsistic senses!

    gucci envy is the best for

    night use, but it is better for colder weather

    anyone have any luck with the smelly amouage range? they can

    be really unpredictable, one girl says nice, another, discusting and overpowering....and very middle

    eastern

    personally, and this is not prejudice from me, i dont like scents that are produced and designed in

    the usa, they seem to be to aqua and do not last, eg DKNY, i use as bathroom freshener now, and the really nasty

    calvien clien stuff, really shallow and no depth

    i much prefer european scents and even japanese
