Thread: Suggest to me?

    Default Suggest to me?

    Hey all.

    After culling the herd that is my wardrobe, I have found that I am in the market for another addition to it. I know that it is trying sometimes to see what people might like based upon what is in their wardrobe, but alas, I ask.

    After going through a stage where I enjoyed citruses and predominantly eau de colognes, I have now moved on to longer lasting, woody scents. As always, I also enjoy things with a barbershop nuance. I love Aqua Velva and wear it every week, enjoying the freshness of its opening and the smokey dry down.

    My wife recently purchased me a bottle of Bois du Portugal, a scent that I have moved on and off with ever since I got into niche fragrances. Wear BdP again was like meeting a long lost friend you forgot.

    I'm also trying to open myself to more "designer" scents, after spending so much time on niche.

    So with that in mind, suggestions?

    Have you tried YSL Rive Gauche pour Homme or Prada Amber pour Homme? They have a barbershop vibe IMO.

    Hi Texican, maybe I just haven't seen your recent posts but in any event, it is good to see you!
    I always think that Geo. F. Trumper has a great way with woody/spice scents. Marlborough and Astor certainly come to mind.

    For green/soapy barbershop scents, try Trumper's Wild Fern and Truefitt & Hill's Grafton.

    +everybody on Rive Gauche Pour Homme

    I've got a lot of niche and I saw so many comments on that one, I had to try it. Barbershop to the max. Surprising longevity.

    Also suggest Versace L'Homme. Very underrated. Sort of barbershop.

    Van Clef & Arpels a fav of mine. Powerful. Sillage monster.

    Santos de Cartier Conentree sort of similar to Versace L'Homme to me. Nice. Sillage not all I'd like, but teriffic juice.

    Personally, I love Kouros in small amounts. My wife absolutely hates it and tells me it smells like...well...unwashed panties.

    Your wife has good taste then, but in my opinion it smells more like a urinal cake!
