I moved from a more incense type to a very nice warm wood - however... for me, as is the case for CdG 2 Man and Helmut Lang Cuiron, the C&S F&M just doesn't last more than a couple hours. I really love C&S F&M warm woody glow, it doesn't shout and doesn't carry far from the body, but it gives you (the wearer) the warm-fuzzies! :-) Just so sad it doesn't last longer on me...

    The Middle East: most certainly 'ouds (Montale, Arabian Oud, and Oriscent) and rose attars; sandalwood and pure misk. If it is Egypt, then Egyptian Jasmine, or "ful", as it is known in Arabic.

    I have never been to India, but two scents that really come to mind are both oils: Jannat al-Mawa and Jannat al-Firdaws
    You are not your perfume.
