    Nice collection

    I don't see any Neroli based fragrances in there. Might be a good time to add one to your Summer arsenal.

    Perhaps Creed Neroli Savage

    The scent grows richer, he knows he must be near
    He finds a long passageway lit by chandelier
    Each step he takes, the perfumes change
    From familiar fragrance to flavours strange
    A magnificent chamber meets his eye

    You could use a gourmand (Tobacco Vanille isn't really a gourman), a leather (Daim Blonde is a pretty weak leather), a musk, a traditional cologne, a patchouli, and various sorts of florals.

    ooops.. you don't have any chypres (like Pour Monsieur or Givenchy III), and while not a fragrance category, you don't have any 'classics' (Diorella, Eau Sauvage, Habit Rouge, Chanel No.5, etc.)

    Maybe a purer vetiver? Sel de Vetiver or Encre Noire? maybe a fig fragrance? L'Artisan or Hermes Un Jardin en Mediteranee? Perhaps one of the Montale rose oud fragrances? Black Aoud? Hmmm... one of the Comme des Garcons Incense Series? You have a enviable collection!

    Dior Homme's a great leathery floral, both of which seem to be lacking in your collection

    Ambery/resinous: Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan, MPG Ambre Precieux
    Vetiter: Guerlain Vetiver, Encre Noir
    Musky: Kiehl's Original Musk, Malle Musc Ravengeur


    BTW, if you're really into woodsy/oriental, you should really check out Serge Lutens Chene, or Parfumarie Generale Intrigant Patchouli

    Good luck!

    I'd go left field and get Hammam Bouquet. Nothing like anything you've got there. A deep floral oriental.

    You're severely missing Colonia Assoluta which would be great for a cologne.

    Haha, Hammam Bouquet truly is your answer to everything, isn't it?

    I'd say give Rive Gauche PH a try: nice and fresh barbershop with patchouli and vetiver.

    You can't tell I love it can you lol... I just think out of the many hundreds of fragrances I've smelled it is one of the most truly unique and luxurious I've ever smelled. Nothing else smells like it.

    It really is unique. I own a bottle too but I don't wear it often since I'm having a hard time getting through the topnotes. After that I love it! One thing though, I have a feeling that the current formulation is but a ghost of the original, although obviously I've never smelled the latter.

    I advise one thing
    you need a kouros or applicable derivative in your lineup
    other choices include
    quorum, Antaeus, Maxims PH, Heritage, BdP, Carven Homme (or gucci envy), and maybe some Givenchy gentleman (vintage) should do it

    Thanks guys for the replies. I'm definatley going to check out Hammam Bouquet. Sometimes though I seem to have trouble with the deep rose fragrances assuming thats what Hammam is. SL Chene I'll check out too. Duro I did like, I think, I'll have to revisit it. You're so right about the classics...I need to pick up one and a good CHYPRE is hard to find for me. I did like Pour Monsieur, but only a fragrance strip. On me people didnt like it.

    Well, these would be great additions to your 'drobe! They're different and mostly full of character and substance. The stuff I want you to need are underlined.


    - a proper full-on gourmand (Aomassai, 1969)
    - aoud (Red Aoud, White Aoud, Aoud Gourmet)
    - lavender (Gris Clair, Brin de Reglisse)
    - an amber fragrance (Ambre 114, Ambre Russe)
    - leather-leather (Cuir d'Iris, Cuiron, K10)
    - iris (Iris Silver Mist, L'homme de Couer)
    - fruits and incense (L'homme Sage)
    - patchouli (Coromandel, Borneo 1834, Intragant Patchouli, Coze, CDG Luxe Patchouli)
    - chocolate (Musc Maori)
    - traditional cologne (Eau Gloire)
    - labdanum (L'oiseau de Nuit, Le Labo Labdanum)

    I'd also recommend Bois d'Argent, Idole de Lubin, and Straight to Heaven. Invasion Barbare looks to perfectly match your tastes as well.

    Hmm, looks to me like you're an oriental kinda guy, and you're low (entirely without?) green scents, florals, leathers, and chypres. Some suggestions:

    Devin (green)
    Comme des Garçons Calamus (green)
    Yerbamaté (green)
    Insensé (floral)
    Knize Ten (leather)
    Eau d'Hermes (leather)
    Bandit (S&M leather)
    Givenchy III (chypre)
    Chanel pour Monsieur (chypre)
    Mitsouko (chypre)

    How about Montana Parfum D'Homme, a nice inexpensive tobacco based frag?
