    Thought I'd resurrect this thread as this gives me some good Christmas present ideas

    My thoughts:

    Creed Royal Oud
    Tom Ford Tuscan Leather
    Gucci Pour Homme 1
    Bond New York Oud
    By Killian Incense Oud

    ...and I REALLY want to get my hands on a sample of Epic Man; I read only wonderful things. I guess my "expensive" picks are woody and woody oriental winter frags...

    My "expensive" smells would include "Y" by YSL, Cristobal (Balenciaga),
    Mauboussin, Le Parfum de Therese and Nohiba (E. Coudray.)
    A woman without perfume is like a flower without a scent.

    For me, it's mainly those scents that are classic in style such as Chanel No 5, Amouage Gold, Shalimar, Antonia.

    For me personally, almost irrespective of the notes (and their actual cost, scarcity, organic/fair trade etc. status), the house and/or the perfumer behind it, the gender, the price etc. almost any female or male fragrance with a balanced and not overpowering touch of powerhouse, leathery, chypre, tobacco, spices, wood, resins and/or not overly sweet gourmand notes smell expensive and exude undertones, associations and ideations of luxury, class, even a touch of Old School/Old World formality.

    A specific recommendations along these lines would be one of my absolutely favorite female fragrances, mentioned and highlighted by me on various other threads: Le Dix by Balanciaga. Often compared to Chanel No. 5 and, to a lesser extent, possibly No. 19, it successfully combines heavier, more persistent classic florals with rich undertones of almost powerhouse like citrus and leather. Very mature and very classy fragrance.
