Nicolai is a fine house.
I think New York is the best of the line, but I very much enjoy
Nicolai Pour Homme, which is a lavender scent. Baladin is a modern,
light, leather scent. All three of these are worth sampling. New York
is the only one I'd recommend blind. I have all three. I didn't think
Vetyver was that great, but you might think otherwise.
If you want something light, sporty, and modern, Ballet de Match
is good. I think Cologne Sologne is a fine traditional, neroli cologne.
I've not tried any of the women's line, but the venerable Mike_C used
to rave about Sacre Bleu when he was posting on this board.
