    I never bought Moss Breches, so I can't say for sure. But it's a sweet honey note that's there from the "get go".

    Honey fans, take note:

    I wore Tobacco Vanille by Tom Ford last night to dinner on Lincoln Road, and Ray said I smelled like honey. Something clicked when he said that - I totally got the honey note in TV instantly!

    I glanced at Turin's review of it to confirm, and yes he calls it: honey tobacco

    Is it just me or do you also smell a large dosage of cinnamon in the top/heart? I wore it yesterday and I went to the gym (luckily it was on my wrists) and I kept smelling boatloads of spicy notes. I love the drydown on this one though, honeyed tobacco it is.
    Currently wearing: Néroli Sauvage by Creed

    I do get cinnamon. Almost stings the nose for a bit.

    Not necessarily. My threshold for cinnamon is very high though - I'm a cinnamon junkie. To me, the top notes of TV are very vanilla prominent. Sweet vanilla.

    Ava Luxe has a very fresh, very wearable honey scent: Miel Riche.

    Ruggles, if you REALLY REALLY REALLY want honey, give Success by MCM a whirl. There's a chance you may never want to wear honey again. I wouldn't wear it in any location where bees congregate.

    Even rugged masterpieces like Tabac Original and Knize Ten have very slight honey undertones, or some notes that vaguely smell (among other things) also of honey. Both have a powdery note, yet not in the sweet sense of the word and both have something smoky, boozy and aromatic, that might remind, although overpowered by leathery notes, of rather bitter, very dark and thick, surprisingly, very little floral honey (sine almost all sorts of honey smell, more or less of flowers, this kind of honey would rather smell of resins, wax, wood, even a little moss and fresh, moist, almost black earth- hard to describe the sensation, but one can, at least guess or assume the honey note I'm trying to refer to).

    My favorite masculine honey is Dior's Bois D'Argent... delicious, but not too sweet.

    Le Dandy by Parfums d`Orsay has a nice honey with the clove and rum accord.

    Rouge Royal for Men by Marina de Bourbon has a sweet honey note that remindes me of Karo, but less sweet. If you like honey, it`s cheap and you can find it at fragrancenet.
