Hammam is unique, utterly unique in the fragrance world, a beautiful floral oriental that is without peer.

powdery and sweet. If, like me, you are not keen on those old school English frags which smell like a high court judge, my advice would be to steer clear of Hammam. Checking out your wardrobe, it looks like you might be okay with that type of scent, but I thought it prudent to give the warning.
I voted for Blenheim Bouquet. I love its combo of pepper and pine, however Castile is also good. My favourite Pen's of all, though, is Opus 1870 - a wonderful pepper scent which is not too disimilar from Blenheim and, on me, lasts for ages.
