    I can not decide what to buy in the future... Musc Ravageur or noir Epices

    Musc Ravageur is ,,dirty"...
    And Noir Espices - very correct

    These are both elegant, but not snooty, have a sweet sensual touch of vanilla, as well as the earthy patchouli note tastefully blended in. Neither is overly spicy, but both are bold without being overbearing. No rough edges.

    If I'm counting correctly, I will enthusiastically fourth the suggestion for Le 3e Homme de Caron! This was the first thought in my mind after reading your criteria. It is everything that you've asked for a scent to be, and more. Be sure to read the current parallel thread on this scent.

    The other thought in my mind, and I'm very surprised not to see it already mentioned, is Hermes Equipage. This is also a large, warm, smooth, masculine fragrance that imho nearly fulfills your criteria as well as Third Man.

    Finally, have you experienced A*men? While I think the two above are closer to that which you seek, it strikes me that A*men might fulfill your criteria, in addition to being somewhat avant garde and a peerless cool/cold weather scent.

    Please do report back with your experiences trying these various suggestions and your ultimate decision!
