    Default Looking for basenotes of vetyver, patchouli, and amber

    Two of my favorite fragrances right now are Amouage Silver and Instinct. They both have a very sensual smell to them which I love so I suspected that their basenotes would be similar and they are. As written in the title, they both use vetyver, patchouli, and I believe amber in both of their basenotes. I would very much like to explore different fragrances with similar basenotes, so im curious as to what you all can recommend.

    Knize Forest contains all three in the base, along with moss. It's a nice piney-resinous fougere. Silver is one of the few Amouage scents that I haven't tried, so I have no idea if there's any resemblance.

    My SOTD, MV3 by M.A.C. cosmetics has those qualities. Patchouli isn't listed in the scent pyramid, but I get a distinct patchouli vibe from it. Also, don't be put off that it's marketed to women. Men could TOTALLY wear this. It has a very masculine edge to it.

    Here's the description, from the M.A.C. website: http://www.maccosmetics.com/template...CT_ID=PROD8566
