My favorites are White, Black, Harissa and Dry Clean
Chanel Cristalle EDT, Eau D'Orange Verte and look for Jil Sander Bath and Body, it has been re-released. The original was from the early 80ties I think but might fit! Oh and Amazon by Hermes!
I would say frankincense, its paired with vanilla, white flowers and aldehydes so you might not recognize it immediately. Chanel fragrances are well blended and notes do usually not stick out, rather...
To relax: Timbuktu and Sycomore
I don't get anything sharp from Cuir de Russie. Aldehydes are strong in No22 but mostly dominant in the beginning. No22 also has a prominent incense note that creates a somewhat cold edge-maybe that...
I think a female equivalent to Bleu would be Allure.
+1 Brin de Reglisse: spray liberatly and reapply once in a while, it is delicious and light, enjoy!
also +1 CDG Black
Le Labo Labdanum 18 and Le Labo Another 13
If you like coconut....
Timbuktu and Dior Homme Sport are great in the tropics (latter not sure about how long it lasts). Fresh and long lasting: L'Eau d'Issey Homme Sport
Bois Farine and Dries van Noten par Frederic Malle!
any of the Guerlain Le Petite Robe Noir line
Guerlain L'Instant pour Homme- I prefer the original version over the extreme, which is too sweet to my taste. I also really like Dior Homme Sport.
yes true and it manages to smells great!
Lily Stella McCartney (although it's a women's fragrance)
I must add to Cacio's description that Rien is blended unbelievably skillful and it just smells really good!
Many fragrances have cinnamon notes (Donna Karan Chaos, Kenzo Jungle Elephant, CDG White...) but I guess only few actually smell like BIG RED chewing gum. I have to try spice bomb now.
Just came to mind that you could also try Mon Jasmin Noir Eau Exquise and The Blanc, both Bulgari.
Not at all. But do you know what actually smells like it (after a while into its development): Eau d'Hermes. It also contains lots of cumin. I especially love the Big Red phase about Eau d'Hermes!
A must try is Rien by Etat Libre Orange
I don't think there is any hurry to buy a lot if you work with samples first. So many fragrances that first seem interesting will get on your nerves or loose attraction after testing them a while. I...
That came about because I was into old movies like Film Noir and comedies and I very much loved Mariliy Monroe!
try FrenchLover/Bois d'Orage by Frederic Malle and have you sniffed Dior Eau Sauvage? its an old one but classic but tart and somehow contemporary. I also second Declaration.
I am also looking for a substitute for Very Valentino for my aunt. I think she enjoys the gentle, unobstrusive powdery but yet fresh quality about it. I got some almond dragee scent from it, maybe...
You might like Guerlain's Rose Barbare, its a beautiful honeyed rose with some spice.
first memory of fragrance was in form of soap: Jil Sander Woman II. It had deeply impressed me, I think I was only 6 years old. My first fragrance was Chanel 5 when I was 11 which I received as a...
If you are interested in the opinion of a lady for a change, try Azzaro, French Lover (Malle), Bel Ami and Bel Ami Vetiver, and Chanel Sycomore.
A really pleasant citrus-vetiver scent is Lime Basil Mandarin by Jo Malone, great for everyday in humid, hot climates! Try also L'Artisan Timbuktu for the underdog, it's crisp and substantial at the...
try Curve for Men - really cheap and supposed to be super popular with women
thanks for the feedback, glad you found something! I have actually never smelled airborne...
Armani Aqua di Gio Essenza or Sycomore
Bois de Violette by Serge Lutens (not sure if they carry it in your store) or Eau de Magnolia Frederic Malle. If you want it more unisex then Sugi by Comme des Garcons.
You know what would be...
it's floral, bright, clean and not heavy or indolic but on the other end not soapy either. It will be different to Heaven because its cleaness is not due to white musc but they share the clean take...
To me this smells like classic french perfumery at its best but at the same time it is a contemporary, genuine composition, more so than, for example, Rue Cambon. I perceive it as very feminine and...
You might also want to try L.l.L.Y by Stella McCartney in EDP. It is a very light, fresh floral (lily of the valley) and it does the trick:...
Le Labo Vetiver 46, Hermes Bel Ami Vetiver, Frederic Malle Bois d'Orage/French Lover
Homage Amouage by far
Something very clean and subtle, don't spray a lot. Bulgari Eau Parfumee au The Vert, Omnia Crystalline (whitish Omnia bottle) or Bottega Veneta Eau Legere would be appropriate.
Barneys is great for fragrances too! Have you tried Eau Sauvage and Comme des Garcons Black and 2Man?
Try Acca Kappa White Moss, the new Narciso Rodriguez: Narciso, and Love and Tears by Kilian. Good luck!
Bottega Veneta could be really good!!! Also try Mitsouko in Extrait, Bois de Iles, Cuir de Russie and second Rue Cambon. Relatively close to Opium but easier to wear is Youth Dew Amber Nude...
Hi, I am a big fan but I only remember smelling the soap when I was a kid and it was heaven!
Have you found your fragrance yet? If you like Opium you should try Donna Karan Chaos for a more contemporary spicy scent. I also recommend you Serge Lutens Bois de Violette and Clair de Musc.
Try Love by Chloe, Kenzo Flower EDP, Chanel No5 EDT or Eau Premiere
Tom Ford Grey Vetiver and yes, it should be something you are very comfortable wearing!
Hi there, what did you actually end up wearing? :smiley:
Expensive doesn't necessarily mean good but nice to have a wide range to choose from! Try By Kilian's ouds and L'Artisan Timbuktu
According to her taste I recommend you to try By Kilian Liason Dangereuse (well, not sure if the name suits a wedding but the scent sure does) and Le Petit Robe Noir in extrait or if you want it more...
How about a set of 4 small bottles of Hermessence including Brin de Reglisse and Vetiver Tonka? And Bel Ami Vetiver (also Hermes) is great. Let us know what you pick...
Egoiste, Guerlain Vetiver, ELO Rien, and Eau d'Hermes-not sure if the latter one is a mens fragrance at all.
Good Girl Gone Bad
try Prada Infusion Iris Absolue, Cartier Panthere, Bottega Veneta
try Kai, it shares the green quality with Carnal Flower
Try Chanel Coco Noir (in the black bottle) or Dior J'Adore
Please try Jour d'Hermes - it's a winner, beautiful bottle too!
ENVY. Also Jil Sander Woman II and Halston.
My favorites are Homage Amouage, Nahema and Rose Barbare.
I recommend you to sniff two of the Chanel Exclusifs: Chanel No 18 and 28, La Pausa. Also try the new Hermes Jour d'Hermes and Narciso Rodriguez For Her
Narciso Rodriguez For Her
What we do in Paris is a Secret by A Lab on Fire
Chanel Coco Madmoiselle, Guerlain L'Instant, Dior Addict, Narciso Rodriguez For Her (pink bottle)
some great quality scents to try are Prada Infusion Iris Absolue, Bottega Veneta, Chanel No 5 Eau Premiere, Bulgari Femmes
Love Chloe smells very clean and very powdery! Second Prada Infusion d'Iris Absolue and also try Chanel No 22 and Prada L'Eau d'Ambre. I get complimented on Love don't be shy By Kilian everytime I...
I agree about Carnal Flower, it's gorgeous and your cat is hilarious! I suggest you Coromandel and to try some of the By Kilian line, especially Back to Black, Rose Oud, and Love don't be shy. Also,...
try also Love Etc by The Body Shop, it's very nice and I think made by Dominique Ropion.
There is nothing like Envy but Vetiver Pour Elle is equally great and has a similar vibe although smelling more natural than Envy.
Prada Candy, Kenzo Amour, something Lolita Lempicka
favorite leathery leather: Rien by Etat libre Orange
Musc Ravageur Oil, Tonka Imperiale (more ameretto cookie in vanilla but so good...), Comme des Garcons White, although this one is probably not sweet enough but great for milky cinnamon.
Le Labo Oud 27 , Yatagan, Jicky

Yesterday I came across a scent that you should try: By Kilian In The City Of Sin, one reviewer called it In The City Of A Sinful Bathroom!
L'Instant Guerlain and Kiehls Vanilla and Cedarwood
By Kilian Back To Black and Coromandel
As a woman I'd
say Sycomore, Azzaro, Eau Sauvage
Une Bois de Vanille
Back to Black
Love By Kilian and Tonka Imperiale by Guerlain
I came from Cristalle myself and I recommend you Vetiver pour Elle by Guerlain, it's great.
L'enfer, interesting, more information please! What besides Miss Dior (Cherie) do the young ladies like and dislike?
Try also Madame by Gaultier, a nice lemon meringue kind of Vanilla in a pretty bottle
Lime Basil Mandarin by Jo Malone! It is a beautiful citrus with woods and herbs, not sharp and very natural smelling, deepens over time getting better and better, good longevity too. Another...
Try Prada L'Eau d'Ambre! Enjoy yourself and try out a lot, there are no rules in perfume (especially not concerning clothes) as long as you do not offend anybody, for example, by waering something...
Kiehl's Vanilla & Cedarwood is light and very pleasant
Miss Dior sounds like a good choice. Try For Her by Narcisso Rodriguez, Allure by Chanel (not Allure Sensuelle), Blackberry & Vanilla Musk by Trish McEvoy
Your mother obviously has great taste and I am sorry but I cannot highly enough recommend you Chanel 31, Rue Cambon, even though you can't get it from Aus Liebe zum Duft. Just go to Chanel in Vienna...
Winter in Paris...Lumiere Noir Francis Kurdjian
Hi MrJack, try Vetiver Tonka Hermessence (at Hermes boutiques) and I second Timbuktu, Sycomore and Tom Ford Gray Vetiver.
Have you tested Comme des Garcons Avignon? I like your picks so far!
Estee Lauder Pleasures. Chanel No5 is great art.
I recommend you to try Aqua di Gio Essenza, I find it actually more subtle than the original one, great bottle too.
If you have access to it check out Lime Basil Mandarin by Jo Malone it's a great...
Chanel 28, La Pausa
Vetiver pour Elle, Guerlain
somehow distantly CK1
Love By Kilian
Organza Indecence Givenchy
Kiehls Vanilla and Cedarwood
Anne Pliska is a straight orange amber

How did you like your Luctor et Emergo sample? I read somewhere it exactly smells like Jergen's Lotion, does it fit your bill?
Please let us know about your experiences!
Prada Infusion Iris
Essence Musc Narcisso Rodriguez
Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia by Estee Lauder
Guerlain Tonka Imperiale
might be too sweet but has a very nice almond note. Second L'Eau d'Hiver.
