    Default My First Niche Fragrence Help

    So my current collection consists of

    Burberry Brit
    Burberry London
    Versace Dreamer
    Versace Eau Frauche
    Juicy Dirty English

    I would like to spend no more than $120 on this purchase. I was thinking of something of the lines of 212 Men for my next purchase but i've never had a niche fragrance before.

    I would like to get something that would be good for fall/summer but mostly warmer weather.

    Something green, light and sweet, since i don't have anything green in my collection. Also this fragrence must be able to be worn to class, so it must have some seliege, but not not exackly Angel Men. In essence u can say that is 212, but i would like something that i can find at either

    Barneys, Saks, Macys, Nordstroms, or any other department store to sniff out, since i'm dropping some big $

    Green Irish Tweed should fit your requirements. If you're considering your first 'niche' you might as well go for this classic!

    pretty neat collection you have there...and with the exception of Eau Fraiche, your collections is bit on the daker side..presuming you want scents with the same kind of depth..i'd suggest

    Czech & Speake No. 88 (rose/sandalwood/incense based scent...if you consider buying this, then buy it directly from them, it's cheaper than luckyscent ($108) - http://www.czechandspeake.com/produc...tid=9&deptid=1)

    Parfumerie Generales Felanilla (it's slightly minty green with a lovely touch of iris and a pleasant accord of Vanilla. Luckyscent stocks it)

    Diptyque Tam Dao (talc like powdery; sandalwood heaven)

    In addition to GIT, maybe Bond no. 9 Central Park (@ Saks). It isn't as "thick" smelling as GIT, and I think I like it a little more.

    GIT is nice and a very wearable fragance but I think of it more as a suit and tie type scent.

    Bond #9 Riverside Drive is a decent fragrance that feels a little more youthful and casual than GIT.

    Fico di Amalfi by Acqua di Parma is a nice fig scent with a big burst of citrus and the green of fig leaves but you really do need to use the lotion if you want this to have decent longevity.

    Comme des Garcons 2 Man and Creed Silver Mountain Water are two great entries into the world of 'niche' in my opinion. However instead of buying only one bottle how about spending 40-50$ on a bunch of samples / decants from the perfumed court?

    If you've a little left over money, Give Mugler Cologne a try. Might be what you're looking for. Also worth mentioning is F Black by ferragamo, Sweet and Green.
    LF: CAP/LID for Creed Original vetiver and Creed Millesime Imperiale, 75ml. Please pm me.. Thanks!

    I second GIT and (non-niche Mugler Cologne)

    Maybe you might also like Creed BDP or even Endymion by Penhaligons (the latter being a more niche, a more exclusive version of commonly known gourmand frags).

    I was actually at nordstrom and checked out the Hermes, and i really did like it, but i ended up picking up 212 Men from sephora and i love it. P.S i also had a huge argument with the Macy's SA's trying to convince them that, Hugo Element is synthetic crap

    I second 3 of the above mentioned: GIT, Endymion, and Fico di Amalfi. I own each of these and enjoy them very much. However, Endymion may not be suitable for hot days, though it would be lovely in autumn.
