Thanks for the info!
I've not tried the Primark one but the one you linked is a copy of Dior Sauvage. Which happens to be one of the most popular men's fragrances right now. Similar fragrances would be Prada luna rossa carbon, D&G K, YSL Y, Versace Dylan blue. All these fragrances fall under the 'Blue' scent category which is basically saying they're mass appealing, compliment getting scents. I'd say go out to the shops if possible and try as many different ones as you can and see what you like. Honestly there's SO many different kinds of smells but the ones I mentioned are pretty safe blind buys. Generally speaking, Cologne is the weakest mixture of Perfume oils and then it's EDT, EDP and Parfum. In that order. EDT stands for Eau de toilette, EDP is Eau de Parfum and then there's Parfum.
Exactly the same feeling regarding the Extreme. It's a perfectly acceptable fragrance, mass appealing and pleasant to the nose but like you say, a bit generic. Narciso don't release men's fragrances too often so maybe my expectations were a bit high.
Im a newbie to fragrances so haven't really settled on a taste yet. I did have that cheapo one from primark called Noir. Had lots of complments for that. But its not available anymore. I tried this which is nice https://perfumeshark.co.uk/products/copy-of-italian-bergamot-ambergris-16?_pos=1&_sid=6802300fb&_ss=r By the way,whats EDT and why is it better? Thanks!
I think an element of it is that I bought on nose alone back when it was first released in a store when my fragrance collection wasn't so hoarder-level ridiculous... I'm a big fan of wearable "clean" musks (Kiehl's Original Musk and Body Shop White Musk for Men get a lot of use when I can't choose what to wear) and I've just always really liked how Narciso Rodriguez incorporate musks. The original Narciso Rodriguez for Him is great, but slightly too vegetal to consider for many situations. I find the Bleu Noir EDT the perfect balance of musky and mass-appealing/versatile. As a massive fan of the original, of course I was keen to get my nose on Bleu Noir Extreme. In all honesty it's perfectly pleasant and better than 80-90% of Designer releases I get my nose on...but for me it's a bit too generic/neutered with the citruses and the "ice" note. There are too many other fragrances I reach for in similar situations although I'm just now making a mental note to wear it more if this Indian Summer holds out a little longer... If I could have x3 from Narciso Rodriguez it would be Bleu Noir EDT, For Him EDT and then Bleu Noir Extreme (in that order). The EDPs in both lines are the odd ones out to my nose...
