Himalaya is also at the top of my personal list. I go along with everything you said. I also favor Erolfa for summer and having been a professional seaman for many years and you are right on about that one too. Any old ship really. It's got that ambiance. As for the Tabarome, initially I thought it was old and stuffy but over time my perception changed. I think it has a fresh edge that makes it acceptable to a younger person if they feel the affinity with it. At least give it time. Be sure to try Original Vetiver. This one is very nice and probably the only fragrance I have that I really enjoy on hot hot days.
