That is a quite distinguished list of scents you already have! Did you come by them through lots of trial and error? Recommendations?! Wow, certainly you know there are thousands that could be made. Nonetheless, you already like two Serge Lutens scents, and I wonder if you've tried that House's Chene? This is a very interesting scent that is quite different from anything you have, and is one of the more un-Lutens-like scents from the House. How about a nice Eau de Cologne-type scent? Something light to wear on warm/hot days. There are several excellent recent threads about just this sort of thing. Finally, I don't particularly recognize much patchouli in your current collection. There has also been an excellent thread entitled "Modern Patchouli" that may be worth reading. That is, is you like patchouli.
Once again, welcome, and please share with us your impressions as you try different things. I'm even interested in hearing some specifics about your impressions of your current wardrobe.
Wow that is quite a list, i will definatly look into them! Thank you very much. I haven't really looked at much of the forum yet, but i will also look at that one, sounds interesting!
Yes, those were found by either family or friends, old xmas pressies ect! Very nice though! Thank you very much.
seems your taste is simple in the way of Oscar Wilde: only the best...
since you seem to like sophisticated high-end stuff I would just name:
Patricia de Nicolai, New York
Divine, L'Homme Sage
Knize, Knize Ten
Lubin, Idole de Lubin
Andy Tauer, L'Air du Desert Marocain
Richard James Eau de Toilette
Malle, Musc Ravageur
Creed, Bois du Portugal
Crown Perfumery, Sandringham
as scents which have greatly impressed me recently as brilliant compositions, so classic or classy they are must tries.
I've been interested in Sandalwood recently and would suggest you try something in this direction:
Lorenzo Villoresi Sandalo is my personal favorite, and while you're at it try his Vetiver, Spezie and by all means the controversial Piper Nigrum (5 stars in my book). You'll find very good descriptions of all of these in the directory.
also worth trying:
Dawn Spencer Hurwitz, Sandalo Inspiritu (impressively translucent & clear)
L'Artisan Parfumeur, Tam Dao (heavy incense)
MPG, Santal Noble (I do not like it, but it's a great Sandalwood-Gourmand)
Creed, Santal Imperial (very pure, cool Sandalwood)
Floris Sandalwood (very pure, warmer, sweeter Sandalwood)
And while I'm at it, three rose scents have captivated me recently:
Czech&Speake No. 88
Etro via Verri
L'Artisan, Voleur de Roses
as well as above-mentioned Tauer scent
And how about leather? Knize 10 is leathery, but don't miss Creed's Royal English Leather, please.
planning ahead for summer:
a classic English lime scent (Crown/Anglia, Penhaligon's, Trumper's...)
Asprey, Purple Water
Guerlain, EdC Imperiale
Roger & Gallet Extra Vieille Jean Marie Farina
or the inimitable D'Orsay, Etiquette Bleue EdT
...provided you like this style of classic light fragrances
Finally, you're into Lutens already so don't miss out on the ingenious Ambre Sultan, Arabie, Daim Blond (fruit & suede), Douce Amere and of course everybody's darling except mine, Fumérie Turque.
