    Have been using Dolce and Gabbana (light blue) since past few years.

    Earlier, was in love with CK but not anymore since light blue.

    1 scent for past few years?

    Don't you get bored of it?

    Also, does it work in extreme cold?

    In extreme winters, rich, dense and warm fragrances work best. D&G is a really good scent for summer imo but winter scent gotta have some power to cut through the cold breeze and make you feel warm & cozy

    @maddgenius i don’t believe in Pakistan genuine perfumes are available. Especially the branded ones. It’s all Fake in the market. Even in Dubai now 90% of the branded perfumes are fake. And I am telling you this from experience. Even the big perfume retailers like Paris Gallery are selling fake.

    You're right. I've had bad experiences even with big stores like Al-Fatah and D-Watson so I have stopped buying from stores altogether. Fortunately got to know a few guys via fragrance community who only deal in 100% authentic stuff. Have made a lot of purchases from so them so far and never got a fake one. Do let me know the next time you visit Pakistan, I'll let you know from from who you can get the authentic stuff.

    Have never tried the houses of Clive Christian and Serge Lutens. MDCI is a great house, you should try Chypre Palatin too, I'm sure you'd love it

    I’m quite into these Oud type scents.. the LV one is really nice. Tom Ford also has a good collection.

    Creed is a bit unique, scent lasts for a long time and aventus has that cool summery feel to it.

    I found the performance of Aventus very average especially for the price. Have you tried the house of Fredric Malle?

    most of the perfumes we use are gifts from america.
    but i heard Naheed sells original. I know lots of stuff comes in via dubai which is fake or 1st copies as they say.

    It seems like you guys are super loaded. All these perfumes are not cheap. How can you afford to buy all these at the same time?

    Exploring scents is like an addiction for me but I usually buy decants of these super expensive perfumes just to experience them so this hobby becomes affordable to me.

    Tell me which one is the longest lasting. I will buy for me. I don't like the one which vanishes after 1-2 hours.

    I think you will like:

    Louis Vuitton Ombré Nomade

    It’s a very strong manly exotic beautiful perfume.

    also, u don’t need to buy all at once, next time you are in Dubai duty free airport, come to this thread and try out the names mentioned, or in Dubai mall you can all try them out
