    Hi again all,

    Firstly, THANK YOU all for the warm welcome back to Basenotes!
    WOW! I am STUNNED by all the WONDERFUL suggestions and responses to my post! I am going to take my time and carefully look over EACH and EVERY suggestion! Oooh, forgive me if I used the term DESIGNER fragrance too loosely. Truthfully, I DO NOT care too much weather or not the fragrance is DESIGNER, NICHE or other ? I tend to think of DESIGNER fragrances being
    LESS expensive than NICHE fragrances, hence my use of the term DESIGNER. I own several fragrances from both camps (as well as other)
    i.e. Attars, etc. I would have to agree that FLORIS and GUERLAIN are not what one might consider DESIGNER fragrances. In fact, BOTH of these house are PERFECT examples of OUTSTANDING fragrance that can be bought
    (in some case) VERY VERY INexpensively! At least once a year, I receive a mailing from FLORIS in which I can buy a large bottle of (in my case)
    FLORIS JF (no box) for $35.00 a bottle! As far as GUERLAIN, heck, I bought TWO bottles of HERITAGE at TJ MAXX (a couple of years ago) for $19.95 a bottle! Man, I LOVE it when I can find FANTASTIC fragrances at this kind of cost! At this point, I am leaning towards VC&A ph (for Summer).
    Of course I will buy a new bottle of CREED TABAROM MILLESIME
    (still my overall FAVORITE fragrance) and I hope to buy a bottle of
    MONTALE CUIR D'ARABIE OUD for Fall. On the LESS expensive side, I am also thinking that GENTLEMAN GIVENCHY would fit my needs for PATCHOULI.
    I still have enough (thank God) of SMN ACQUA DI CUBA for my Tobacco fix.
    Any COFFEE suggestion ?

    Regards,
    SixCats!

    SixCats,
    The way in which SOME members welcome you back made ME think you've been away for MONTHS. When I looked at your post HISTORY, I was surprised to see your last ACTIVITY was on February 19th, 2007! Definitely NOT a long time, at least in MY book. But, a very WARM WELCOME BACK anyway.

    MY picks are:
    Polo (original)
    Dolce & Gabbana PH
    Eau Sauvage

    Hi Shiver,

    Well, that is rather surprising to me as well! Perhaps I did dropped by in Feb. for a brief visit/post, I don't recall. I use to post a LOT and often in the past years but, I've kinda been MIA for some time due to a host of reasons. At any rate, it's good to be back and I hope to post a bit more often again.
    Recently, I have been spending a LOT of time with my other hobby of collecting VINTAGE AUDIO gear.

    Regards,
    SixCats!

    Cool hobby (I hope you've been trying new scents as well during this short time you were away ). Forgot to mention in my post above: I detected a coffee note in A*Men, so you could probably try it.

    I can clearly see that you're a long standing member in this community. As a newbie here, I'll be looking forward to seeing more of your posts.

    Cheers

    Hey, don't forget the Ungaros. I know, I know, Ungaros I and II are discontinued, but both have lots of fans, and Ungaro II at least is still available at great prices. Talk about a "heavy hitter"!

    Three more to add to your "to try" list, that I don't think were metnioned, would be:

    Narciso Rodriguez for Him
    John Varvatos
    Aramis Devin

    This whole thread is populated with great fragrances.

    The two that are the best quality and most versatile:

    YSL L'Homme - Maybe the best modern year around workhorse scent available. I'm wearing it today and it manages to be rich and fresh at the same time.

    Dior Homme EDT - Again, extremely versatile, very well crafted, and at home in most any situation.

    If I could only have two designer scents, I think it would be those two.

    I recomend the designer fragrance (?) by Pascal Morabito called Or Black. It's available from his Paris Showroom for $69US for either the 50 ml. bottle or 100 ml. refill bottle that is in a less attractive bottle. It definitely falls into the category of type of scent you are looking for - dark, leather, patchouli, oakmoss, vetiver - one of the best there is! It does not have coffee or tobacco really although the oakmoss/vetiver gives a hint of tobacco.

    Aramis 900 and Devin is already mentioned.
    I would like to add Aramis JHL. Very well blended, dignified and distinguished. Good sillage and great lasting power.
    I prefer it over Creeds BdP.
