Avignon! Can't get enough of this stuff.
Tom Ford Grey Vetiver.
L'Air du desert marocain.
Gucci Pour Homme 1.
I have had great results with Spirit Silver lately and it performs as well as anything I own. Every time I wear it I am amazed with the longevity and with how it changes on my skin, especially on...

Lomani Intense Black.
Caron pour un Homme.
I don't like to use "worst" as many people like the this fragrance but it was certainly my least favorite. I get old lady from this and it's not the lavender. Received a sample...
One of my best blind buys as well.
AB Spirit Silver.
Intense Black - first wear, longevity seems to be pretty awesome.
Versace The Dreamer
Ed Hardy Love and Luck
Lomani Intense Black
+1 for Black, I'd also second Quorum.
Honestly though, I would probably wear Old Spice or Clubman. I haven't worn either since I started collecting but I do love them both.
Lomani Intense Black and Quorum Silver - 2 cheap blind buys.
Parfums de Nicolai New York.
I just sampled Versace Man Eau Fraiche and was in a bad mood the whole way home.:thumbdown:
Interesting thread! As a funeral director I will be sure to avoid these suggestions. I love dark, woody, incensey fragrances but melancholy scents might not be a good idea for me.
Vetiver by Guerlain.
Versace The Dreamer.
+1. I feel that this juice would be perfect if it lasted a bit longer, and it can be found for a great price.
La Nuit would also be worth a shot, IMO.

YSL La Nuit.
Gonna give the GIT a go for the first time.
I only tried 2Man twice thus far but it seems to be fairly close. GPH just seemed smoother while 2Man had more of a bite and my novice nose can't distinguish what that is. 2Man was included in my...
I took a little trip to the Leesburg outlets this weekend and it was a total waste of time. Barneys and Saks carried no fragrances and the Fragrance Outlet was a huge let-down.
When I was brand new to this site I asked for some suggestions for a woody, incensy, dark fragrance. GPH kept coming up, along with 2Man, Wonderwood, CdG Black, Tam Dao, and others. After trying...
I have had very good experiences with Surrender to Chance. They have a lot of inventory, site is user friendly, and ship really fast.
Never used Perfumed Court but read a lot of negative reviews.
Versace The Dreamer - excellent after the harsh opening.
Cool Water mini - why not? I have smelled this before, just didn't know what it was.
Versace The Dreamer - saw a 1.5 oz at Ross, then saw a 3.4 for $5 more at Marshalls in the same shopping center and picked it up.
After a visit to the mall - Bvlgari Black on left arm (offensive), Pure Havane on right (delightful).
I only started collecting a couple months ago and I have been going for a signature "theme" more than one particular scent.
For whatever reason I decided I wanted to smell earthy, woody, incensy,...
I've really been enjoying decant samples, for the price of a decent bottle of juice I receive enough samples to try something new every day (if I want) for a few weeks. I have been ordering from...
Bois du Portugal, CdG Wonderwood, Grey Vetiver, Chene. I'm new to this so I think I'm easily "wowed".
I have been wondering about this as well. I have been sampling a lot of vetivers, so I have been wondering if anyone can smell it at all, not really concerned about wearing too much.
Bois du Portugal.
Grey Vetiver is one of my favorites from the many samples I have recently tried. I love Guerlain Vetiver and find it to be pure vetiver without much else going on (not a bad thing). I find myself...
I own many pomades, several shave creams, a few razors, and I'm building a collection of fragrances... my mornings are full of decisions.
I've decided to concentrate on fragrances, so things should...
A nice batch of samples. I've really jumped into this thing with both feet - it's getting expensive but it's been a blast.
Comme des Garcons Black.
Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver and Burberry London are 2 of my favorites.
I stopped by Sephora yesterday and checked out YSL La Nuit, Gucci Pour Homme II and Farenheit, really dug La Nuit and Farenheit.
I tried Wonderwood a few days ago and loved it. Can't wait to try this.
Tom Ford Grey Vetiver. Not as "vetivery" as I had hoped for but a great summer fragrance.
Annick Goutal Vetiver.
Burberry London for me as well. This is the scent that got me hooked, the top is nice and the base is perfect (for me), unfortunately I think I'm the only one smelling the base. I have been...
Not sure as this was my first exposure. I was told that the whole line is going up, starting in August I believe. The website lists a 1oz for $225, can't do it.
Spent the last 4 days in New York and visited the Creed store with my brother. I had a good conversation with one of the salesman and checked out several fragrances and fell in love with Spice and...
Received my first order from STC, woods and vetivers.
Also ordered Burberry London - love that scent. Bought the Burberry for Men by mistake last week at a discount store thinking it was what I was...
Have to put a plug in for Surrender to Chance, ordered on Monday received most of it today (Wednesday), the rest should be here tomorrow. Looking forward to trying something tomorrow, probably 2 Man.
Thanks again for the suggestions, especially the DC - specific recommendations. So many I want to try, it's overwhelming.
I ordered the following samples:
1 x Comme des Garcons Wonderwood ...
Thanks a lot for the responses! I stopped by L'Occitane and checked out the Vetyver, I like it a lot and it seems to be what I'm looking for. Seems like it would be a good daily fragrance - woodsy,...
Hello. I was hoping that I could get a few suggestions for a woody scent, I am new to this and must admit that my nose is far from refined.
This year I began using old pomades which led me to DE...
