    I prefer Tam Dao.
    In the CdG collection, I love Hinoki, but I'm tired of the turpentine note.

    sandalwood ~ cedar

    Help!
    I sampled Tam Dao today, and I think it could become my new holy grail.
    Before that, it was Hinoki, but I was tired of the turpentine.
    Is there a fragrance similar to Tam Dao...

    Re: The French Pronunciation Thread

    Must is pronounced like in English (because it's an English word), we don't pronounce the 'ü' in this word.
    'Petit Robert' dictionary confirms my pronunciation.

    Rose

    On my clothes, the dry down of Black Aoud is a heavenly rose.
    Is there a fragrance with the same rose than in Black Aoud but without the oud?
