    Default Suggestions

    I am a newbie here, but a lurker for years. I have a few bottles currently, Creed- Santal, Hanna Morrae, Creed- Imperial, and a few others.

    I have discovered that the majority of the scents I like are in the "woody-oriental" category. I was hoping I could request suggestions from others.

    I am looking to purchase the Tom Ford TV, although I have not sniffed it and NO ONE in NE Ohio carries it.

    If this is in the wrong section, I am sorry.

    Thank you.

    Welcome to Basenotes!

    I am in NE Ohio also. I called the Tom Ford boutique in New York. They sent samples to me at no charge. Many other companies offer samples free or at a nominal charge. The Perfumed Court, BeautyHabit and Luckyscent are also good sources for samples.

    For starters:
    Tiffany for Men
    Heritage
    Jaipur Homme
    New York
    Antidote
    Opium pour Homme
    Pomegranate Noir
    Bois du Portugal
    Burberry London for Men
    Escada pour Homme
    Cristobal Pour Homme
    Mazzolari Lui

    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, ...... I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost
