    Re: TomFord: Tuscan Leather or Oud Wood?

    I own both, but seldom wear either. I'd say Tuscan Leather by a hair, simply because there are better oud scents out there (as there are leather scents).

  6. Re: So I just got back from the perfume store...(Dior Homme)

    Congratulations, now you just need to pick the new Dior Homme Parfum and disregard the current DH EDT you just bought. Then you'll well and truly be a Basenoter ;)
  7. Re: Does someone here has got experience with Carner (Barcelona)?

    Cuirs is really good, it feels like a tamer and more refined Black Afgano (mostly the norimbinol and oud notes), with facets of Egoiste.

    The new Oud range from MFK. Cashmere Mood I would say would probably be the closest. You may also want to try Epic Man by Amouage.
