A real hidden gem amongst men's fragrances.

I consider myself a real fragrance connoisseur and im into everything from quality designer releases to niche stuff like amouage and dior privee.

I came across this little gem and was shocked at the quality. It smells like a high quality arab themed fragrance, the strength is off the richter scale and it lasts and lasts. The stuff is like toxic waste.

Dont be put off by the association to 24. I was initially but was really shocked by how good this stuff is.

Wouldn't this be a better deal for £5 … Wouldn't this be a better deal for £5 more?http://www.thefragranceshop.co.uk/products/24-gold-eau-de-toilette-100ml-gift-set-21721.aspx?ref=3&utm_source=google&utm_medium=product+search&gclid=CKPl3rX_lcACFfSWtAod-HQA9Q



Pretty much would yeah.

But honestly i dont think its necessary. The 50 ml is enough cos any more than one spray is too much.

You only need one spray. Any more is going to choke people out with this one.

Also if anyone has an NUS extra card, you get 10%

I am not pointing out how much spray to use, I am only suggesting that for £5 more you get double the amount of product to keep you going longer. Plus you get a "free" gift!

10% off with code SORRY10

whats the point of having a free sample if you are buying it anyway? just a thought. heat added

I hear you, but honestly 50ml would last u years.

Its not worth buying the bigger one.

How about the original and platinum variants, how do they compare? having no sense of smell makes this kind of purchase difficult

I was a bit skeptical of the smell but I listened to some Youtube reviews and seems mostly positive. I ordered the 100ml version. Thanks for posting.

ScentStory produce amazing oriental fragrances. Each one they've released since the original 24 has catered for different tastes and genders but this one for me leans way too much on the feminine side. Extremely powdery and sweet with no versatility unless you don't mind stinking up the office or choking people out with the strength. The original and the latest one Go Dark are probably the most masculine and versatile out of the bunch with the latter being sold for £7 for 50ml recently at Fragrance Shop which was a complete steal. Anyway ask your local Fragrance Shop for Live Another Day and Live Another Night samples by ScentStory. Live Another Day will definitely appeal to everyone since it smells very close to Issey Miyake Sport.

I dont get any of what you just described.

Id say its unisex leaning more towards a masculine scent. It is incredibly strong which is why i said just one spray.

It isn't even that sweet. More medicinal.

This is similar to a very highly regarded fragrance by Arabian oud called Kalimat, only the 24 is better.

In that case you need to be guided totally by others.

I would possibly opt for something a bit safer and versatile. Happy to advise if you let me know your budget

Calm down. Vanilla is the biggest note in this scent. If that's not the note you pick up then it will be amber which is also another sweet note. For you to claim this vanilla/amber bomb isn't that sweet you definitely need to clean your nose out or better yet...go out and sniff it instead of Googling what this fragrance supposedly smells like. I'll let you get back to wearing your £3 Al Rehab and claiming it's better than Silver Mountain Water X)

What on earth are you talking about? It is a sweet fragrance but not sweet in the way that people might think. It has a very medicinal vibe.

You sir clearly know nothing about fragrance. Why would you even bring up rubbish fragrances made by al-rehab.

I have owned the silver mountain water and its a great fragrance.

If you want some advice on quality fragrance let me know. You may want to up your game from Al-rehab tho.

No. I'm alright thanks. I don't need advice from an internet perfume … No. I'm alright thanks. I don't need advice from an internet perfume connoiseur who thinks reading up notes from his bedroom is the equvialent of actually using his sense of smell. Anyway shouldn't you get back to hacking P.Diddy? Also...Cold. Rubbish scent



I recently spent 4 hours in the harrods fragrance hall sampling a lot of the new niche stuff so that should give you some indication of just what a perfume connoisseur i actually am.

If you don't like this fragrance then i invite you to leave the thread.

If you want to troll you know where the misc is.

I ended up purchasing Oud Ispahan and came away with samples for the new cartier fragrance Oud and Oud.

You wont have smelt the cartier one. I can send you one if you want
