My personal favorite is Mitsouko. Give it a try as well as L'heure Bleue and Jicky. Don't be put off that they are targeted toward women. If you have been reading the Guerlain threads you know the afore mentioned are just as applicable for men. Try also Apres L'ondee. I think you will find that Mitsouko is an instant must have. It sounds like going to a different sales associate next time would be in order also. Good luck and I would be interested in hearing your fragrance test findings.
