    Default Lutens exclusive line - which ones move you?

    I have a trip to London coming up and was wondering which of the Lutens Exclusive (non-export) line you'd recommend checking out, and of course, why. Which ones move you or connect with you, and what about them do you like? I'm hoping to sample some before I go and then maybe pick a bottle up while in London (even if I have to order ahead of time and have it shipped to my hotel). Thanks!

    BTW, here are my short-takes on the Lutens scents I have tried, just so you know my "tastes."
    Ambre Sultan: awesome amber scent, just masculine enough to pull off, very rich and deep, sexy, tanned flesh
    Arabie: maybe too sweet (with those dried fruit notes), nice though
    Chene: pretty cool, very much reminds me of tree sap, masculine enough, good scent, not sure if I'd have a bottle
    Chergui: I like this one a lot, less sweet than I thought it would be, nutty, masculine enough to wear, may be bottle-worthy
    Gris Clair: wild, insane lavender top and a great surprisingly rich ashen dry-down, I feel this one at least leans masculine if not solely masculine...don't know if I'd own more than a decant though
    MKK: whoa - musk, sweat, urine, fecal, semen, the whole works...with some rose! Weird.
    Iris Silver Mist: my least favorite so far, smelled like cosmetics on me
    Fumerie Turque: probably my favorite so far, rich, leather, honey, smoked something or other, one odd mid-note that smelled like baking ham...may get a bottle before next winter

    It looks like you already smelled my favorites. Diam Blonnd is has been missed. That one is pretty good.

    Chergui is on its way right now to my house. Arabie and Ambre Sultan are my other favorites.

    I recommend Encens et Lavande. This one is a must try IMO!

    If you like fumerie turque (btw it's my fav), you will like Chergui and Cuir mauresque too.
    Check out also un bois violette for a lighter one.

    Also give Santal de Mysore a try.

    My personal favorites are Chergui, Fumerie Turque, Cuir Mauresque, Ambre Sultan, and Santal de Mysore.
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    I've tried both and Cuir Mauresque is amazing, didn't care too much for Borneo.
