    Default Help with fragrance wardrobe

    I recently joined basenotes but I've always been a lover of good fragrances but often not really being able to recognize notes or even categorize the type of fragrance I am wearing. Need help in making new selections that will cover categories I don't have. My current wardrobe is listed below:

    Terre D'hermes
    M7
    Narciso Rodriguez for him
    Dior Homme
    L'Instant Guerlain
    Gucci II
    D&G - The One
    Bodu Kouros
    F Ferragamo
    Sensual Vetiver by Herrera
    Diesel Fuel for life
    Gaultier2
    Mont Blanc Individuel (I hate this one)

    I need suggestions for 3 more fragrances that will cover missing categories and won't break the bank. Currently considering YSL l'homme and Rive Gauche, tested both and I liked them.

    Rive Gauche is IMHO a great choice
    Fahrenheit 32 by Dior
    Solo Loewe and Solo Loewe Intense by Loewe

    Looks like I will get rive gauche. Tried Farenheit 32 but wasn't really impressed. I need something I can wear easily to work

    B*men is fantastic, I'd love to try pure malt and coffee too.

    You have no Chanel so I would recommend either Egoiste or Antaeus. (you may even look at Egoiste Platinum as your drobe seems pretty heavy already)

    Aramis Havana (48 bucks at Neimanmarcus.com)

    Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin (cheap cheap on ebay)--everyone needs a little licorice during the winter

    You also have no Creeds, and GIT and SMW are both great!

    U have quite a few sweet frags in your wardrobe. Is that a particular preference of yours ?

    A few classic masculines like Antaeus, Aramis, Givenchy Gentleman and Eau Sauvage could make your wardrobe more interesting. Maybe a good aquatic like Bulgari Aqua too.

    btw, another vote for Rive Gauche from me.

    Tried this one and didn't like it. Smells like soup

    I ended up with a number of sweet fragrances from recommendations and gifts from friends. I don't really like aquatic scents coz I used a lot of them back in the day.
