    Question Heliotrope/Ambre.

    I am looking for a soliflor heliotrope fragrance as I have become addicted to this note and to ambre as well. Any suggestions as to an acquisiton of one or both of these, my favorite notes?

    This is going to sound weird, but have you smelled Old Spice? I think both of these notes are presented in OS...nothing like Jaipur Homme, much less refined and luxurious, but it might surprise you.
