Let us introduce you to your fragrance the way it was meant to be - Pure perfume without alcohol or other useless & toxic fillers. Discover what the designer had in mind - smooth, long-lasting, rich, balanced and full of luscious aroma. Never offensive or overpowering, long lasting and balanced. They occupy only your own private space and leave a gentle trail only where you choose.
Just like jewels, pure fragrance oils vary tremendously in quality.
We have put an enormous amount of effort into selecting the best possible quality pure fragrance oils of every type and the thousands of positive store and fragrance reviews are proof. We've been changing the way people think about fragrance since 1996 with many happy & beautiful smelling customers to prove it.
Day after day, customers tell us our versions smell better than the originals. Perhaps the lack of alcohol and, in many cases, higher quality oils than those found in the "original" makes the difference.
Ounce for ounce, our perfume bottles contain fifteen to twenty times as much pure perfume oil as the typical Eau de Toilette, but choosing pure fragrance oils is not so much a question of saving money, as it is of getting your money's worth.
Usage: A drop or two at most should be all you need. Unlike conventional perfumes, our oils are alcohol and filler free, so it may take a minute or two for the slowly warming scent to emit its full bouquet. The fragrance will be smoother and better balanced than any alcohol-driven aroma and well worth the wait. Our fragrance oils last most people six to twenty-four hours, depending upon skin type, evaporating naturally during the course of the day. Our pure perfume oils also last longer in the bottle - commercial perfumes with fillers spoil, sometimes in as little as twelve months, but pure perfume oils retain their fragrance year after year

ITSBABA REVIEW ABOUT LAPIDUS
Designer Ted Lapidus launched a masculine nearly a decade before this, one that has all but been forgotten about as a late 70's "me too" in a smoky tobacco and leathery style that was probably better suited to the 1960's. But while Ted Lapidus Pour Homme (1978) serves as only a historical footnote obsessed about by elitest collectors wallowing in the delusion that older and longer discontinued is better, the rebooted Lapidus Pour Homme (1987) proved a far more potent and memorable beast that became a poster child for the "powerhouse" 80's style. The scent is notorious for it's virile undercurrents and strong fruity top, both of which were uncommon in a decade filled with loud but stiff oakmoss scents. It did spawn several flankers, but appears that most of them live in the shadow of the original, which is often called a staple 80's period piece for hobbyists interested in the masculines from the decade. The scent also was a marked shift towards more floral powerhouses that would seek to take the reigns from the mossy and woodsy ones from the decade's beginning, sort of straddling that 1880's-meets-1980's neon dandy aesthetic, and the more austere forthright masculine scents from the late 70's and early 80's. The previous Ted Lapidus Pour Homme was something of an inbetweener too, so this trait being present in the latter Lapidus is unsurprising. The bottle shape epitomizes the steely power and prestige of the 1980's businessman, the "Gordon Gekko" stereotype, but this scent is anything but about business, unless the business at hand is that of making love, to anyone, anywhere.
Lapidus Pour Homme opens with lemon and pineapple -an opening accord later revisited by the much more upmarket Aventus by Creed (2010)- surrounded by light and sweet heart notes of honey, jasmine, and rose. The base is where all the masculine growl in this scent lies, being a sandalwood and patchouli foundation with that same civet/civetone-powered "man skin" glow that Kouros first brought into the world in 1981. Unlike YSL's unabashed and homoerotic ode to machismo,
Lapidus tries to come across a little more foppish and colorful, being the Andy Warhol to the Tom of Finland that is Kouros. Projection is of the intercontinental ballistic variety and longevity is that of a radioactive isotope probably found in said missile, so use with care. The drydown is where the similarities between the two uber-masculines really seems clear, but the obviously fruitier and more flamboyant journey Lapidus takes appeals to my sensibilities just a tad more, as I've always been one to prefer the scenic route to my destination if time allows. There's rose here, mixed with honey and jasmine, all notes that would become hallmarks of future floral powerhouses that would cap off the 80's decade before aquatics took over.
The base of civet, sandalwood, patchouli, and oakmoss is also pretty strong indicator of where the powerhouse genre was headed in it's final mutations into the early 90's. This scent is just so jubilantly chromatic to me, so joyous in it's exclamation of it's own masculinity and virility. It's not an "alpha male" jock stereotype staring you down across a basketball court with backwards-turned cap, but a man in an open shirt, large belt buckle, and white leather pants, ready to make you feel as you never have. It's here to make it's presence known, but not here to loom over anyone menacingly. You'll feel like the late Freddie Mercury in his trademark yellow jacket, mixed with a bit of Boy George, but with the muscle and martial prowess of Jean-Claude Van Damme. This stuff walks softly and carries a big stick. Well, at least I hope that's just a stick anyway.Lapidus Pour Homme is a gem among powerhouse masculines and one that reportedly survives modern IFRA regulatory reformulations well, since it was never very heavy on the things now frowned-upon by the organization. It definitely stays just left of any real genre classification outside the powerhouse category, and is a pure abstract creation so far as I can tell. I can imagine the delight among guys in the 80's discovering it's rather unique nature after slogging through the glut of oakmoss and bergamot bombs popular then.
It's still a compliment-getter in the 21st century, which is a rarity amongst middle-age scents such as this, since it's not old enough to be considered timeless but certainly not quite relevant to what's going on in male perfumery these days. It's good for 3 seasons of the year but a bit too resinous for hot summers with the honey note. Despite my personal love for it, I wouldn't call this right for everyone, because not every guy is going to enjoy loud, tacky, fruity, and full of "feel like makin' love" swagger, but whether it was the 1980's or nowadays, I'd certainly be put on guard by any man walking into the office soaked in this stuff. It's not a must-buy for every guy, but definitely a must-try for everyone as this simply has to be experienced by anyone seriously into male fragrance: it's that much of an encapsulation of it's era. Lapidus Pour Homme is best used on weekends and time off, days running errands when you wish to cut through a crowd or be the center of attention. Be careful, this old tiger still has his stripes.
