Recommendation based on my small collection

    Recommendation based on my small collection

    post #1 of 23
    Thread Starter 

    Hi, I have a small collection of 14 fragrances, I'm a poor student so it's mostly affordables, but I've kind of become obsessed in the last few months.

     

    I'm looking for just one more really, so need to pick carefully. I'd like some recs based on what kind of fragrance might be missing from what I have at the moment please.

     

    What I have:

     

    Jacques Fath Yang

    Gucci Pour Homme II

    Bulgari Homme Soir

    Bulgari Aqua

    Mugler Cologne

    David Beckham Homme

    Ralph Lauren Polo 3

    Givenchy Play Intense

    L'occitane Eau Des Baux

    L'occitane Vetyver

    YSL L'homme

    CK Be

    M&S Autograph

    Vera Wang for Men

     

    Cheers :)

     

    I should probably add I don't want to spend over £50 really.

    Perhaps Bleu de Chanel

    You could get something fun and avantgarde, like Lush Breath of God (smoky vetiver) or Dirt (minty). In general, Lush has a very good quality price ratio.

    Agreed. Give Chanel Sycomore and Dior Vetiver a try. If you're adverse to paying the higher prices, check out CDG Vettiveru.

    a cheap oriental such as lolita lempicka or mj legend should do it.

    Acqua di Parma Colonia Essenza. Great stuff, lasts the longest of the flankers IMHO.

    Terre d'Hermes, Pure Havane... Animale Animale as a cheaper option.

    My advice (because you're a poor student):

     

    Lay off the perfume for a while.....spend more time studying!

    post #17 of 23

    Pure Havane
     

    post #18 of 23

    Try a real masculine, but inoffensive scent, like Van Cleef and Arpels Pour Homme.

    Bleu de Chanel or Green Irish Tweed would both be great additions to your collection (or any collection lacking them for that matter)

     

    You seem to be lacking an Oud, and I think you should at least give one a try before you buy anything else. If you're not afraid of higher prices give the Acqua di Parma Oud a look, it's a very friendly one.


    A good tobacco scent might also do you well, I'd recommend Pure Havane or Burberry London

     

    You also seem to be lacking an incense, I'd recommend Body Kouros, Comme Des Garcons 2 Man or maybe M7 Oud Absolu (despite the name it's more incense than Oud)
