    Re: Recommend me a LEATHER scent

    My favorite leathers are as follows:

    1. Cuir Ottoman - a holy grail scent for me (and an excellent value also IMO)!
    2. Clive Christian C for Men
    3. Puredistance M
    4. Kinze Ten
    5. Xerjoff...
  3. Re: Can you please recommend me easy to find, gorgeous spicy-oriental scents?

    Definitely give this a try.

    Also Jubilation XXV and Interlude from Amouage, although I personally greatly prefer the former over the latter. Good luck!

    I also liked the old bottles and don't really see why they're changing them. However, as long as they don't change the formulas, I don't care if they come in coke bottles or coffee bean canisters!

    Parfum d'Empire Relaunch

    I sampled Cuir Ottoman a few months ago, just in time for it to go out of stock at luckyscent. I love leather scents and to me, this is about as close to perfection as I've found. It's making me...

  17. Re: Something similar to LIDGE - but more patchouli, less sweet?

    I think I'm slowly coming to this same conclusion! I found a lot of cool scents along the journey though.
  18. Re: Something similar to LIDGE - but more patchouli, less sweet?

    Thanks. Would you recommend the original Patchouli, the newer Patchouli Intense, or the Patchouli Vanille? It looks like they're all available on Fragrancenet now. I haven't been able to find...

    Re: Anything close to a forest?

    Have you tried Mona di Orio's Vetyver? IMO this meets many of your criteria. This is like bathing in concentrated mashed-up forest floor pulp in the springtime sun. Incredible scent!
