Do Le Labo fragrances have to be refrigerated?
by Marmot57 | Perfumes & Brands
...From what I've read, as I was also thinking of preserving my fragrances in the best way possible, the only option would be a wine cooler. A wine cooler would keep the fragrance between 12-18 Celsius degrees which is the most optimal threshold for fragrances. Although I never understood how a wine cooler resolves the issue of moisture or dampness inside this of it.I know there are some fragrances which are made specifically for being refrigerated, such as Cool Water Woman Freeze MeCool Water Woman Freeze Me but otherwise, if not officially stated, I would not go for it. I think all Youtubers keep their fragrances on shelves in some kind of basements, aren't they?

...A very cheap alternative to Le Gemme - TygarLe Gemme - Tygar is Théorème pour HommeThéorème pour Homme . I have it, I tested it and it's really good not only for the price. Longevity is there, smell is good, projects well for the first 2 hours or so then it comes closer but you are going to have noticeable scent bubble around you. Of course, you also have to spray on the clothes.Also, a goo fresh long lasting fragrance is Polo Deep BluePolo Deep Blue . It projects like 1.5 hours maybe 2 hours then will come closer to the skin. On clothes this lasts for days due to the musk in it! It's insane how long it stays on clothes but it's a parfum so don't expect to project a lot after the first hours of application.

Which perfume should I buy next?
by Marmot57 | Perfume Recommendations
...Probably the weather would be rather warm or hot in Mexico?If you still want to go for a sweet and intense fragrance my suggestion would Joop! Homme Le ParfumJoop! Homme Le Parfum - this has iris, praline and vanilla. It's sweet and it has very good performance. It's more for colder weather but this is very affordable $30-40 and like many say, if this was in a Chanel or Dior Bottle people would be craving for it more. It's LE PARFUM, not the others which are not that good.You should be able to find at discounters at least a 50ml of The Most Wanted ParfumThe Most Wanted Parfum - this is simple yet more unique, inviting and intoxicating. It is not as sweet as the previous one.Otherwise, you can always go for Y (Eau de Parfum)Y Eau de Parfum which you should be able to find at around $60 from discounter a 60 ml. This is sweet and fresh apple with ginger and clary sage.Personally, I don't really like 9pm9pm I think Ultra MâleUltra Mâle is a lot better but this is also a very common scent. All dudes smell like this, at least in Europe. And I don't recommend The One for Men (Eau de Parfum)The One for Men Eau de Parfum for the same reason I cannot recommend any Sauvage, you will smell like her ex and all the other guys.

Fresh, dark and mysterious performer

...Thanks for the suggestions 👍I can enjoy a little bit of powder but not much, I am not a fan of very powdery fragrances. SquidSquid is an interesting one, it has been recommended to me before but I need to find a tester or decant. This is now on my list, too.At the moment I am waiting for a tester for Laudano NeroLaudano Nero to arrive, so this is already on my list. I am looking for these very dark, depressing, church or death like fragrances.But I do not like things like No Limit$No Limit$ Guilty Absolute pour HommeGuilty Absolute pour Homme or Boss Bottled ElixirBoss Bottled Elixir - I don't want to stink or smell like a greasy mechanic.If you guys have other ideas please share them with me, even if they are not really fresh, thank you!

Fresh, dark and mysterious performer

...Salutations, I am looking for a fresh-summer fragrance with good performance that is dark and mysterious.I have in mind something like Encre Noire (Eau de Toilette)Encre Noire Eau de Toilette and Encre Noire SportEncre Noire Sport , I already own and enjoy them but they are not as they used to be. It's okay if your suggestions go the same gothic / church / old library vibes, I like it like this. I also used to rock Kenzo Homme (2022) (Eau de Parfum)Kenzo Homme (2022) Eau de Parfum which is also a dark blue fragrance usable in summer but not high heat, It was too linear and I got bored with it.AventusAventus style or DNA does not work for me.I would prefer designer but I am also good with niche. The budget is 200 euro but I want something that is relatively easy to find in Europe. I want to be able to use it everywhere.I appreciate your help!
