Looking for Something Subtle

    Hello Ladies and Gents,

     

    I don't have much in the way of perfume. I like what I've smelled from Tom Ford's Private Blend especially Tobacco Vanille.

     

    However it's far too strong for me, I want something subtle and close to the skin.

     

    Any suggestions?

    Molinard Ambre perhaps.

    I just found Kiehl's Musk oil.  Very soft and close to the skin and certainly subtle.

    Gendarme is a skin scent

    also Happy by Clinique

    Creed Sublime Vanille is a nice subtle vanilla.  Enjoy paying through the butt though.

    I really like the sound of this I will have to try and find a sample, thank you so much! :)

    Just to note, the picture was of the Kiehl's Musk EdT, not the oil. They are mainly the same scent, but there are noticeable differences. The EdT is a bit heavier and more animalic.

    Thanks for pointing that out  I doubt I would have noticed the difference.  I will try to find both and compare.

    This one. Similar to Tobacco Vanille, but not nearly as strong.

    Vanille Bourbon by Les Senteurs Gourmands is pretty subtle and laid back.

    Purple Label by Ralph Lauren would be a nice choice also

    But worth it MO.

    Not vanillic, but leathery (think suede with a touch of smoke), Chanel Cuir de Russie, especially in parfum concentration, is the ultimate skin scent for me. 

     

    I also second dirty musks, like the Kiehl's. But beware, it's dirty, some people are turned off. (If you go down that route, you can also try the more ballsy Lutens Muscs Koublai Khan).

     

    cacio

    Le Labo Gaiac 10 is very subtle and nice.
