    Default Your favourite fragrances seldom mentioned on basenotes

    Have you got any favourites that do not get enough screen time here on basenotes, but are so overwhelmingly good that they should receive more praise?

    One of my favourite scents that is not mentioned too often here is Hugo Boss Baldessarini (the original, I find the other two rather uninspiring). It's my favourite all-occasion scent along with GIT and it never fails to get compliments.

    It's such a well-crafted, modern scent. Reeks of sophistication and class while remaining subtle. I can imagine Cary Grant and James Bond wearing it. Just can't get enough of it!

    The tobacco dry-down is heavenly!

    I get the feeling I'm the only one who ever mentions:

    DSH Sandalo Inspiritu
    Maxim's pour homme (discontinued & rare)
    René Lezard Identité (restricted to German market)
    Berdoues EdC Extra Vieille No. 444 (what the f...?)

    And these lines badly need a hype-cycle :
    d'Orsay
    Laura Tonnato
    Gianni Campagna
    Roger et Gallet
    Royall Lime

    They make great stuff but are somewhat on the margins of attention. I'm sure there are loads more.

    These fragrances are not mentioned very often, but they are two of my top favorites:
    1. Caron L'Impact de Pour un Homme - the perfume version of Caron's classic Pour un Homme, a long lasting aromatic amber with musk, vanilla, and IMO the absolute perfect lavender
    2. The Different Company Divine Bergamote - contains a very high content of natural bergamot, ginger, green notes, musk, and wood

    Another fragrance which is not mentioned very often, which I have sampled only a few times, and which I continue to crave from my memory of it is:
    - Privé Ambre Soie by Giorgio Armani

    I agree on Arome 3, which is absolutely fabulous, and should be one of the greats here, yet gets little notice. Is that because it's hard to find?

    Hugh Parsons is still under appreciated, but I think it's getting more play. I get PMs on it from basenoters, and I think a mini-mo is starting.

    I like Castle Forbes's Forbes by Forbes, which is a great oakmossy/amber combo that is terrific. There is little or nothing about the Lord Malcolm here, and his wife makes great fragrances at the castle perfumery. Andrew French, CF's UK manager/distributor is a very nice man. Small is good.

    Thumbs up Re: Your favourite fragrances seldom mentioned on basenotes

    1) Montana Parfum d'Homme (original) Edt--a steal at about $30/4.2oz

    Dried Fruit, Spices, Musk. Very intense opening that ends up in a wonderful drydown.

    Discontinued in 2001, this is still available at many online perfume outlets that are reputable. Has a wonderful drydown you will be hard pressed to keep your own nose out of! At 6 years old for the newest of the leftovers, my two bottles acquired in the past month are crisp and enticing scentwise. I don't think they are faded one bit.


    2) Ralph Lauren Safari for Men Edt --can be had for $35-$40/4.2oz

    *Basenotes says:

    Top Notes
    Eucalyptus, Bergamot.,

    Middle Notes
    Cedar Leaf, Basil, Cinnamon, Thyme, Lavender, Geranium.,

    Base Notes
    Oakmoss, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Leather, Vetiver,


    Just an amazing fragrance that is also available online from reputable outlets. I find it damn near irresistible and keep sniffing at it when I wear it.

    Oh, and it's so annonymous, I almost forgot: no one ever mentions D.R. Harris, especially when compared to Trumper or even Taylor of Old Bond St. D.R. Harris makes some very nice products including Arlington, Pink Aftershave, a very distinctive Sandalwood, and HIS cologne. No one is going to have shivers over this stuff, but it is as good as T & H, and the others I mentioned, and are unabashedly masculine.

    Hence, I agree that Royall Lyme is rarely mentioned. I also like Spyce quite a bit & Muske. Spyce is kind of like an EDC of JHL, I find. Mandarin comes off like an EDP of Happy for Men, but it can be a little too much if unjudiciously splashed. The jury is out on Vetiver. Lyme has that fantastic lime note which wisps through the day on my skin, along with a hint of barbershop notes.

    Some other ones for me:
    Eau des 4 Voleurs

    Lacoste Original - My opinion of it improves every time I wear it.

    Aura of Patchouli - Caswell Massey [I am kind of amazed how much I enjoy Aura of Patchouli, but don't really care about Givenchy Gentleman. They are similar in a lot of ways, but the AoP does it for me while with GG I'm non-plussed.]

    Green Valley [Who would have thought a Creed would be on the list, and I wouldn't think I'd put it on here being a designer snob but there you go... Definitely has the honeysuckle/Fahrenheit note which will put a lot of people off. I think Creed glomed Chevrefeuille + GIt + a little SMW]

    D.R. Harris also makes what is possibly the best Bay Rum on the market. They also have an amazing Witch Hazel that works well as an aftershave--smells faintly of burnt sugar and marries nicely with most of their (and others') colognes. D.R. Harris makes the famous "Pick-Me-Up" elixir (read hangover cure) so beloved of the late Queen Mother and you can have a glass of it right in the shop (ask for Joyce to make it for you) and sit in the same chair that Byron sat in when he went a roving so late into the night (of course he also drank Hock and soda water as a hangover cure). Not sure what cologne he wore.... THAT might make an interesting thread. Passage d'Enfer came too late for old George Gordon--would have been just his cup of tea.

    Apologies for hijacking this thread.

    I've been contemplating on buying one of these two but can't decide which one. To my nose, they have similar qualities. Which one do you think is more versatile and can be worn in any season?

    I couldn't decide between the two for about a week. But after testing side by side , I decided on Maestrale. They are similar at the top and start of the middle, but Maestrale has much more bite and longevity on me at least. It also has a salty, sea air, edgy thing that Bursch lacks IMHO. Maestrale is amazing and is climbing into my top 5. No hype here, it stands on it's own.

    I second this--Maestrale is the more interesting of the two. Great staying power, with a definite edge to it. Awesome stuff and not widely worn, so you will stand out when wearing it!

    --------------------------------------
    Great to see that l'Occitane is getting some mentions--Eau de Baux is great--incensey and woody, as is Eau du Badian--Star Anise at its best, and 4 Voleurs is a modern take on the historical "Robber's Vinegar" that has been a staple in French perfumery for two hundred years. All very accessible and affordable AND the Eau de Toilette comes in bottles that the spray top screws off of and can be a splash if you want it to be.......

    Zino from Davidoff. IMO this is a wonderful evening scent. The opening is incredible, like dark, ripe, deep blueberries, folding into something else entirely...rose and jasmin...sandal, amber, cedar, and patchouli. This will be my night scent this summer.

    Eau de Badian by L'Occitane is another that I never see. Of all the colognes I have ever owned, this was the fastest bottle I went through. Perfect for spring and summer days.

    And Green Irish Tweed...just playing

    Ditto on the Baldessarini (can be found cheaply at discount stores now) and Profumi di Pantelleria Maestrale (vs. the Acqua di Biella)--truly a stunning composition. Also the Krizia Spazio is quite fine. I've sensed this one bubbling from under for awhile. I find Trumper's and l'Occitane overall to be quality but are also short-lived and a bit weak imo.

    I have no love for Royall Lime; anyone can PM if they want to buy it from me.

    Does anyone remember this stuff from the '90's?

    I think it had strawberries in it...very crisp, fresh & slightly sweet.

    We all know that life is not a popularity contest, ok, maybe just a little bit of one. So here's my list:
    Eau du Fier by Annick Goutal
    Vanisia by Creed
    Eau Dynamisante by Clarins
    Eau de Lalique by Lalique

    My secret favorites.

    Now this is a Five star thread!

    I'm still new at this. 10 years ago I thought I had discovered Quorum and that $35 retail for a fragrance was sheer insanity.

    When I washed ashore here at Basenotes they were beating the Creed drum so violently... well you know how it was. Everything was fine but there was a Creed that was better. Now Montale is getting a workout.

    Luckily most of the frags mentioned here I've never tried so I'm going to be having fun for a few months it looks like.

    I'll just second or third the Eau d'Italie Bois d'Ombrie recommendation
    Lacoste Booster I believe is right in my price range. The bottle looks plastic though. Is it?
