My fren's parcel just got delayed & detained by MOH - Pharmacy dept Kuching for testing.  Only his 2nd purchase from FragX.  Bad luck.  Think will be issued a warning later & nex purchase detained will be confiscated by MOH.  FragX DHL really a no no.

Sorry to hear that. But, is there anyway to make sure FragX didn't use DHL, like during the payment we can opt to choose other courier? Because I actually plan to place the next order soon. But knowing this happen to your friend, I'm quite worry now.

I broke my promise.... after quite some time, i cant control myself and bought my wedding day scent

This is also one of bottle where i found the new reformulation is better than original

I first sniff this scent 2 years ago in klia.. my impression were meh.. feminine green powder way too soapy celery rose scent.. fast forward 2 years.. resniff at metrojaya.. boom so so so good rich oppulent rose scent for men..

Immediately this must wear for my actual wedding day and bought it.

It is still a greeh fresh rose, but the soapiness, and greeness have been toned down and hence making the lime and rose even more kaw and best part is performance is way better.. projection and longevity is off the chart.. 2 on chest 1 on back of the neck can last whole day i mean whole day and projects even after dinner

The incense is still here however it is so soft here yet blend well with other notes to make it smell sweet and slight peppery

This scent is truely a remarkable rose scent. Love it to the max and it is up there on par with kilian rose oud, dior oud ispahan, le labo rose 31, tom ford noir de noir, mfk lumiere noire pour homme, FM portrait of a lady as the must have magnificent 7 rose scents

Anyway my morning wedding day scent - Xerjoff Nio; wedding dinner scent - Amouage lyric man

What are the percentage that the items will be return to us after MOH/Custome checking. Slight delay should be okay for me as I didn't need that things urgently as long as it arrived. The things that scared me is actually if they detained the things permanently.

I bought a 5ml decant of Lyric Man last week from one of the forumer here Izam. Please noted that I'm very new to fragrance, almost all of my collection are designers, and most of them are very famous or can be said as "most complimented" fragrance as mentioned always as in youtube videos. I also don't own any oud based fragrance, most of what I have are either fresh, sweet, soapy, gourmandy.

So when I first tested Lyric Man, my thought were it smells smooth, I didn't get rose as much in the opening, maybe until few minutes or so. But, I am wondering what is so special about this perfume that all of the experience collectors, and fragrances sifu like so much. For me, it does smells smooth, rosey and nice, but doesn't have a wow factor when I smelled it. It is just nice. Maybe this is the difference between people like me that wears perfume to smells good of course but at the same time want attraction and compliment from surrounding people. Compared to some of the sifus like u, that wears for your own, and doesnt care if people smell it on you or not, and like it or not. Am I right? Or it is just because I have an untrained nose, so it will take some times for me to like this kind of scents?

Don't get me started on bro Ton3 fragrances collection, I'm quite sure that most of his newest collection that I never heard of smells weird(sorry tonny bro), those animalic scents, I wonder how it smells. But I guess he is wearing is for himself, so who cares.


By the way, congratulations on your wedding. May u have a wonderful day, long lasting relationship, and cute kids(if you want one, or two). I'm sure you'll smell amazing bro smile.gif

I 2nd bro ammoshaf's statement.
At times I cant even fathom these sifus describing a note, let alone individually identify them.

Even reflection man didnt grow on me.
Im just feeling happy to discover new scents that I like and adore. Hoping one day my untrained nose will come to appreciate scents that these sifus are devouring.

I learned a great deal from the sifus of this thread.
Hats off to them and congrats to bro Edward.

Gorgeous scent, lyric man. 1st time i smelled is on that thin paper they include in the paper bag. the sa sprayed some on it. Perrggh. Beautiful. They dont do that anynore ye?. Anyway congratulations on the wedding. Wishing you a happier life as husband and wife (^^)

P.s : SOTD Volutes edp. Not totally in love with it but i like it enough to buy it. volutes have that dark deep and thick almost smokey, Herbal -spicy semi sweet tobacco scent. Bottle Sticker did not survive through years of wearing this. But the scent is a sticker for sure. Sticks on you 10+ hours.

Still on the subject of CDNI and powerful rose scents....today grabbed my bottle of "the other CDNI" to compliment the cool cloudy morning. As Edward mentioned earlier about the classic rose perfumes, this is really an almost spot on clone of Tom Ford's Noir de Noir. Marketed as a woman's perfume but a man can certainly pull this off as well...just be self confidant and you will get compliments from ladies mainly because they they love the smell AND intrigued as well why a man is wearing it biggrin.gif

I would say this is a better "imitation" of TF NdN than CDNI for Man is to Aventus....if you get what I mean hehe.

Today tried Dior sauvage oud ..haha. wore 3 spraysof dior sauvage with a drop of pure oud oil behid the ears each. To me every fragrance could be an oud fragrance. Just need to get yourself a good pure oud oil. Make sure to buy from a experienced/knowledgable seller/source because these oud oils could come in bad batches to (such as contamination by other type of wood that look similar like agar wood during processing).

The smell is something im not comfortable with haha. i could smell the oud all the time but sauvage is something that comes and go. when i get whiffs of sauvage and it molds with the oud scent. It smells like sour ....oranges with woody herbal kinda tone to it. Hmmm.. not sure about this. Next one ill try with something sweeter just to counter the skankines of this oud.

Fragrance commercials is a joy to watch eventhough sometimes it certainly doesnt make sense. The only fragrance commercial that made me buy its product is paco rabanne 1 million. In my oppinion could be one of the best..if not the best fragrance commercial out there haha.

from the looks yup.. im not into it either. deodorant bangsawan. However...from the smell and performance side i'm loving it. everytime i pass by a dior counter the cool spray is something that i always try on. the sprayer is AMAAZIING and the best part is...it really gives you that cooling/refreshing effect. great for the gym or any kind of post workout . One quick push on the spray of this gives you alot of juice..feels like 3 sprays from the normal sauvage. if i have this, definitely would put this in my cycling bag and use it to freshen up after a long ride. normally we all damn masam when finish and lepak at kedai makan hahaa. because of the looks i tend to see it as a body spray but its still is an edt concentration like the normal sauvage ( a little different in note composition i think) with great performance ( for longevity i got same as normal sauvage and a few times i felt it tend to last a bit longer ) i do see the practicality and function of this design. tough and durable for the guy with an active/busy/on the go lifestyle. faster application than the normal sprayer. Honestly you could just spray this for one second or maybe less starting from your neck and pulling the mist down to the body and you're good to go. just throw it back inside your bag or wherever right (^^)

still i wont buy it. already have the normal one and im content with that. jeremy fragrance did an experiment on the sauvage cool spray where he sprayed himself non stop with it to see how long does the spray last. i think it was about 1 minute untill the spray gave out.
