    Default Treasure Hunt - the quest to find irreplaceble hard to find scents

    Bad things happen to good people...well this saying is so true for perfumes as well. we don't know why they got discontinued but, we constantly keep looking for these coz it's composition is unmatched. maybe with all the new regulations that has kicked in(and also lack of avaialability), lot of key ingredients have had to be altered and it has become increasingly difficult for perfumers to acheive a certain effect. classic cases would be Oakmoss, Mysore sandalwood and what have you..

    Leonard Pour homme for eg. it's drydown is simply unmatched. i can't think of a composition* that can match the smoothness and richness of it's basenotes. (*i maynot have had the good fortune of testing as many frags as many would have here)...

    So, the question is...Do you have a scent, which in your opinion is worth tracking down? we all know the atou, the Ungaro's et al...but for someone like me, Leonard was a revelation...may we have some more which are just timeless conpositions..?

    Thnx for your time folks...

    from my end, the usual suspects are..

    Patou Ph
    Havana reserva
    Ungaro I & II
    Leonard Ph

    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
