    Default What are you favorite notes?

    For me Lavender, Ambergris, and Incense.

    For my Lavender fix I love the top notes in Bois du Portugal (my very favorite fragrace)

    Ambergris I love Ambre Sultan (a close second)

    And my incense would have to go to Passage D'Enfer

    I would love to get my hands on a bottle of Encens et Lavande, as I belive it to be filled with all of these! (I have yet to smell it, so correct me if I am wrong)

    You'll love Encens et Lavande!

    My fave notes are: amber, bergamot, castoreum, cedarwood, cistus labdanum, civet, clove, cocoa, coffee, galbanum, immortelle, incense, iris, jasmine, lavender, mandarin (peel), musk, oakmoss, opoponax, orange blossom, patchouli, pepper, rose, sandalwood, tea, tobacco, vanilla, vetiver, woods...
    Not in the same scent, though.

    Coniferous notes are my personal favorites - pines, cedars, junipers, cypresses, spruces, firs, etc.

    So Creed Epicea and Trumper Wellington, Halston Z-14/1-12, Lanvin Oxygene (a good aquatic, very dry) and Versace Green Jeans are definite favorites. If only Demeter Fraser Fir had a hint more oomph...short but refreshing.

    And I admit it...I like Pino Silvestre. I shunned it for some time but the other day it really shocked me - very green, eminently refreshing and long-lasting. A fluke? I hope not.

    Can't wait to try Blenheim Bouquet, I hear it's the promised land for pine freaks.

    Thumbs up Re: What are you favorite notes?

    I'll limit it to five, listing all I enjoy in some context would be pointless and would take time.

    Agarwood, Vetiver, Patchouli, Iris and Leather.

    Default Re: What are you favorite notes?

    Sandalwood, incense, mace/nutmeg, lavender, neroli, hesperides.
    But the real beauty lies in the blending and so I adore a rose note or white flowers when blended with citrus, woods, or incense (as in Caraceni, Sandalo, Sandringham, Maxim's, Acqua di Parma, and many other favorites of mine)

    Least favorites, by the way, are chocolate, coffee, almond, and basil.
