Ok, not aftershaves, EDP - but most guys don't know the difference!

There was a thread on here recently on mens fragrances and a fair few people contacted me so just putting a post up with what I've got going at the minute as some people obviously found it useful.

All completely legit fragrances, in glass atomisers with silver printed labels. Retail price on these is far, far greater - I just buy in bulk and sell on to pay for my own portion of each bottle, split them into smaller bottles and print labels, it can save a fortune vs retail prices as shown below.

Creed - Aventus (RRP £170 50ml)

Top notes: Apple Blackcurrant Leaves Pineapple Bergamot
Heart notes: Juniper berries Birch Patchouli Jasmine
Base notes: Vanilla Musk Oakmoss Ambergris

10ml £19
20ml £37
30ml £51
50ml £79

2ml sampler in a plastic spray - £5

Tom Ford - Tobacco vanille (RRP 175 50ml)

Top Notes: Tobacco leaf, Spices
Heart Notes: Tonka bean, Tobacco flower, Vanilla, Cocoa
Base notes: Dry fruit accord, Woods

10ml £19
20ml £37
30ml £51
50ml £79

2ml sampler in a plastic spray - £5

Xerjoff - 1861 Renaissance (RRP £170 100ml)

Top Notes: Tangerine, Bergamot, Lemon, Petitgrain
Heart Notes: Rose, Lily of the valley, Mint
Base notes: Patchouli, Cedar, Amber, Moss

Just doing this in 10ml size atm as they don't do a larger bottle and its a pain in the backside to decant manually, £22 for 10ml

I'm also taking interest for Creed - Viking (RRP £185 50ml)

Top Notes: Calabrian bergamot, Sicilian lemon, Pink pepper
Heart Notes: Pepper, Bulgarian rose, Peppermint
Base notes: Indian sandalwood, Haitian vetiver, Indian patchouli, Lavandin

10ml £22
20ml £39
30ml £53
50ml £83

2ml sampler in a plastic spray - £6

Collection welcome from Stockton TS18 area. Alternatively I can post out 10ml sizes for 90p first class or £2.20 first class signed for, or 30ml/50ml sizes at £3.50 first class or £4.50 signed for.


10ml & 20ml come in multiples of slimline glass atomisers. Ive got 30ml bottles on the way but if people want them quickly I can do 3x10mls. The 50ml bottles are the nicest of the bunch and I'm not just saying that cos they cost more (I make less the higher the volume, actually) - they're silver collared, thick glass and have a really fine misting spray. They all come in silver lace gift bags so between the nice atomisers, printed labels and the bag, they presentation is good enough to be a gift. A lot sample sites or decanters just use the cheapest sprays and labels possible and it looks a bit scutty - I prefer to have mine looking as good as possible.

Happy to show original bottles, you can confirm genuine etc.

Drop me an email at ashleypenny@me.com and I will send you some pictures of the sizes.

Nothing of the sort. Iím a fragrance collector and run splits on several sites. I buy 500ml bottles in bulk and split them into smaller bottles (a practice known as a split) so that everyone takes advantage of economies of scale.

The scents themselves are high end but the retail price for the smaller bottles is obscene and this is a way to get around that.

It's funny because I could show an original bottle. It doesn't mean what's in the sold sample bottles are the same product, a cheap market knock off copy for instance.

Someone would have to be pretty desperate to try this. What happens if someone suffers an allergic reaction? You'd be liable would you not? Haven poured the contents under lab conditions.

> Someone would have to be pretty desperate to try this.

Don't be daft. People do splits and decants all the time. They're usually not trying to make a profit on it, just cover the cost of the bottle and the supplies. Apart from the brand-name gift sets in Boots, it's hard to find fancy aftershaves in sizes other than small samples or big expensive bottles.

Its hardly desperate to want to save a fortune on retail prices of fragrances. As per my post a 50ml of Tom Ford TV is £175. I like having original bottles from time to time, but I would much rather have nearly 100 notes in the back burner.

As for lab conditions, this isn't a requirement. If you google there are several large businesses that do decants, and I know some of the people that run them and they do not use 'lab conditions', they do the same thing as me - sterile syringes and needles. This is high alcohol fragrance, theres not going to be a lot of bacteria in it as a result.

I am in a lot of fragrance groups and thousands of these transactions occur daily, and as per my post several people on here bought off me in november, certainly no complaints from any of those lads.

People are welcome to collect, confirm its authentic and watch me decant it in front of them if they like. I make a few quid for my time (which is all declared through my business), and they save a shedload on exactly the same product minus the packaging.

Traditionally womenís fragrances are EDP whereas menís are EDT (and aftershave is itself itís own classification which is weaker again than EDT).

More recently menís fragrances are becoming EDP, such as creed, Tom Ford Private blends etc, but most designer lines tend to remain EDT.

Obviously EDP costs more as it uses more fragrance oil. Thatís my understanding of it anyway 👌🏻 First said even the EDP womenís lines where thereís a direct menís one is smallet so who knows.

1 million is a nice enough fragrance, trouble is itís a victim of its own success and so popular that on any given night out most blokes will be wearing it and has gained a bit of a chavvy rep as a result.

£29 not a bad price for 75ml although recently you could get 200ml for £46 from the perfume shop in a flash sale which was far better value for money.

Anyway, trolling aside I have nothing against cheap scents. Scentstory's 24 Gold is an absolute gem considering its a tie-in with a TV show, and casually be picked up for about £20 or so, great winter fragrance. And Junaid Jamshad Oud Qadim is a great substitute for Dior - Oud Ispahan.

Have never tried anything for £4 (other than a sample) that I would put on my skin though, admittedly. Horses for courses though, if thats what you want to wear go for it, Aventus & its like are not for everyone, but those that do like it often enjoy paying a lot less for it.

If stored properly it will almost always be fine as long as itís a legit product. Thereís some notable exceptions for example some gourmand (smell like you can eat them) fragrances use natural compounds which can degrade such as vanilla, but most will be fine.

Iíve got a bottle of farenheit by Dior that was made in 1992 and itís fine. Keep it away from strong light and itís usually ok!

Best tip I can give anyone is the difference between EDT and aftershave. Aftershave as a phrase is misused horribly to mean any fragrance, but is actually a type of fragrance with only a small concentration of alcohol in it, designed to be used as an astringent after a shave, with a nice smell that will evaporate, leaving you free to apply a fragrance for the day.

Most designer fragrances are sold in aftershave (which are usually open splash bottles) and an EDT/Eau de Toilette version. The EDT will have more fragrance oil in and stick around a lot longer, but because aftershave is usually a few quid cheaper many blokes and those buying for blokes will mistakenly get the aftershave.

Simplest way to look at it is if itís got a spray youíre usually ok whereas if itís a pouring bottle likely to be an aftershave (with the exception of massive bottles of high end fragrances).

I quite like Davidoff Cool Water, but only ever had one bottle, but because it only costs £12 I'm deemed unworthy.

It's just labels on smelly bottles, it's complete nonsense.

And the adverts on tv? Dear me, what is going on there? Never seen anything so pretentious.

TheFair86 Posted on 05/12/2017 14:32

Cool water isnít a bad fragrance, but it is a cheap copy of Green Irish Tweed by Creed, but itís popular. If you like it, try give GIT a spray next time youíre in fenwicks, selfrisges or Jon Lewis etc. It will be familiar but a lot nicer.

Not sure where the unworthy comes from, people just have different tastes? Youíre calling wanting to smell nice silly in a forum where people get angry about how someone kicks a leather ball around or which party people vote for. Itís really easy to over simplify any interest but given that most posters on this board are male, majority of them probably wonít mind smelling nice to the opposite (or even sane) gender.

Also the price quoted is an example of what Iíve mentioned above - cool water aftershave is £15.99, cool water EDT is £25.99, so if you like it, make sure itís definitelty an EDT you have.

Agree about the TV adverts, they only seem to roll them out how Christmas, Valentineís Day, mother/father day etc and they are always stupid.

You can still get some original bottles of kouros on eBay, I had one briefly but was too overpowering.

Occasionally IRFA will decide that an ingredient can be an irritant and then all fragrances need to take it out, so they get reformulated. When this happens itís never for the better; some fragrances that used to be beasts are now weak in comparison - a great example of this is JPG Le Male - used to be really strong but itís a shadow of its former self. Fahrenheit too is a pale version of the original.

Its my opinion that many copycat scents often share note profiles with the scents they are copying, but are never made with the same combination or quality of ingredients. I, like many other fragrance fanatics, have been down that rabbit hole before of convincing yourself they are just as good, but fact is they aren't. Same goes for all these 100% fragrance oil you see advertised places.

They're good for checking out a scent and for having a cheapie, but never as good as the real thing.

The one notable exception for me is CDNIW, by Armaf, which is about 97% close to the scent of Tom Ford Noir de Noir to the point that I now use the Armaf. it doesn't last as long but its not worth the price difference for that 3%. Other clones I just steer well clear of now.

oh and whilst not directly a copy cat, I'd say Dior - Sauvage is about 90% the same as Bond No 9 - The Scent of Peace for Him, so is pretty good value rather than paying £200 for a bottle of that. [^]

Thanks to everyone thats been in touch - a lot more fragrance fans in teesside than I thought (and beyond!) & surprisingly a lot of the people have been women buying gifts for partners, same with my eBay store.

I've got another bottle of Xerjoff 1861 on the way as people were quite keen on that, and I am doing another split of Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille as the full bottle went quite quickly

I am also buying a bottle of Tom Ford Oud Wood - another great Tom Ford Private Blend fragrance - same prices as the Tobacco Vanille;

10ml £19
20ml £37
30ml £51
50ml £79
