    Re: Similar to Kenzo Woody / Homme Boisée ?

    Encre Noire works fine in hot weather, but I won't call it a safe blind buy. Unless you really, really like vetiver.

    APLS and LNPH are quite different.

    Since C&S No. 88, Black Tie and Rose 31 are name-checked in the original query, I would say Lumiere Noir is the one to go for.
