Please recommend some extremely indolic fragrances. No preference as to whether it's men's, women's or unisex.

Serge Lutens A la Nuit is another example of what might be called a poopy-floral, and marvelous.
I just started wearing Kouros Sport Cologne and in the summer heat there's a distinct indolic jasmine/bergamot thing going on. The original Kouros may be accused of smelling like number 1, but the sport version is distinctly all about number 2.

I second A la Nuit and also recommend Fleurs D'Oranger by Serge Lutens

Sales thread here
Fracas and A la Nuit are both good. The latter was more indolic to me than Sarrasins.
Don't have much experience with Creed or the Armani Prive line, except for maybe the amber one.
Haven't tried Kouros recently. The only version I recall is Body Kouros. Like that one for the sweet rubbery aspects. Maybe the other versions are worth a look. If anyone can elaborate on differences between the origonal and port cologne, that'd be great.

Charogne by Etat Libre d'Orange is different type of indolic-scent (ie - not of the floral variety).
Olene by Diptyque is another option.
Mona di Orio Nuit Noire. Beautiful stuff.
PVC and Leather. A Chain and a feather
Second Nuit Noire, it is fabulous!
ďI wanna say something. Iím gonna put it out there. If you like it, you can take it, if you donít, send it right backÖ."
The most indolic thing I've ever smelled was Neil Morris's Zephyr. I enjoy my indoles, but this was RIDICULOUS. If you've ever had a kitchen sponge go really really bad, Zephyr is like a concentrated version of that.
But if you want a clear idea what indoles can do without being prettied up by jasmine or anything (there's a bit of citrus in the top, but it's kind of like a cruel joke, fooling you into thinking this frag is going to be fresh before the indoles grow and grow and grow...)
I should state, though, that I sampled this at Takashimaya from their sample bottle, which may have been off. Other reviews here compare it to strawberry shampoo (!?!?)
Has everyone checked out my Top 100 Blog??

"The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the "thinker." The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.
You begin to awaken"
-- Eckhart Tolle
Try Talyor of Old Bond Street Original no. 74
TOBS doesn't get much attention here, but their products are great and affordable for an English house. 74 is jasmine, jasmine, jasmine, lilac, rose, and sandalwood.
