    Default Fall/winter scent to complement what I have

    Ok, I am ordering a bottle of Havana and if that does not work, then Cuba.

    So, here is what I have
    GIT
    MI
    L'Air du Desert
    Red Vetyver

    Selling or trading my CDG 2 Man. Like the white smoke, but it is too linear and it goes skin scent on me in 2 hours.

    So I am thinking of something more wintery, since MI and Red Vetyver are my summer and the GIT and LDDM go all year round for me.

    I think I tend to the tobacco/spicey/incensey scents, since I like Piper Nigrum and stuff.

    Here are some I was thinking of

    Frapin Caravelle Epicee. Tried a sample and it was nice
    Read up on Parfum d'Empire Wazamba. Pretty promising
    Frank #2

    I have tried the Les Neredies Imperial Oppoponax and that was too vanilla. I used to wear Obsession. I think my preferences would be classifed as Oriental for the most part?

    So, longevity and much projection, is it one of these three or something like it? By the way, the price points of these three are good, but some of those at luckyscent are too much for me. $130 for 100 is about as high as I want to go this time around

    I'd recommend Timbuktu by L'artisan. Others I'd suggest not in your price range but worth seeking....

    Hermès Hermèssence Ambre Narguilé
    Serge Lutens Chergui
    Tom Ford (Private Blend) Tobacco Vanille

    You may be able to find the TV cheaper in a bottle split if you end up liking it.

    Tobacco? Smoke? Winter? How about Fumerie Turque? Tea for Two might also appeal, and I did rather like Wazamba when I tried it. I'd also try Jaisalmer, Zagorsk, Dzongkha, and Eau Lente. This last has plenty of opopanax, but is less sweet and vanillic than Imperial Opopanax.

    How's the longevity of Tea for Two? I find it too light and doesn't project much.

    On me, 3sprays of T42 can make me smell good the whole day.

    My recommand:

    Thierry Pure Malt, Montale Red Aoud, Montale Boise Vanille, Montale Blue Amber, Serge Lutens Chene, Serge Lutens Vetiver Oriental, CdG Avignon, CdG 8 88, CdG 2.

    I'll second Vibert's recommendations of Tea for Two, Dzongkha, and Eau Lente.

    Didn't seem to last too long on me, and if it did only as a very light skin scent. That's a problem people have with a lot of L'Artisan fragrances it seems.

    Tea For Two lasts long on me, and smells just beautiful.

    Caravelle Epicee is a great fragrance, perfectly suited for cooler weather. Zagorsk is a really great incense scent for cold weather. You might also want to check out Michael for Men.

    Ungaro III is really something, it's different, conservative, somewhat cold and distant. Burberry London is very nice, a bit arrogant and distant, sweet, warm, but conservative. Gotta love it
