    Default Warm, Masculine Scents...will these 3 do it?

    Got a craving for some warm, masculine scents. I'm thinking of ordering JHL, PdN New York and Guerlain Heritage. Will those 3 nail it?

    And...are all 3 year around scents?

    Just my take on it - but New York just doesn't cut it for me.

    Heritage however is absolutely awesome IMO and I do consider it to be appropriate year round.

    Chuck, IMO, Guerlain Heritage will satisfy your need for a warm, masculine scent, so much so that you won't need any of the others.

    Guerlain Derby--on the drier, spicy side--might fit as well.

    If Kouros doesn't do it, Body Kouros may (too warm for me).

    I love New York.

    Had to be said . . . Heritage is also wonderful. Haven't tried the Aramis - the re-issued series is just beginning to find its way out here.

    Just a thought but I consider Hermes Vetiver Tonka a 'warm' vetiver. I'm not a huge fan of vetiver but VT is a quality comfort scent and fine in all settings.

    Thanks for the replies, kind sirs. Out of the 3, Heritage seems to be the pick. Now the debate of EDP or EDT begins!

    I completely agree with you about Vetiver Tonka.

    I've only tried the EDT, and it's pretty rich. I imagine the EDP is even richer. To the extent you're looking for year-round wear, EDT is probably the way to go.

    Chuck, you didn't mention whether you've tried the three you're choosing from. If so, do you already have a preference?

    re: Heritage EdT vs. EdP, the EdT is definitely the louder of the two. The EdT starts off sharper, with bergamot I believe. The EdP, as one might expect, hangs closer to the skin and is decidedly warmer in style.

    re: JHL, try it if you like boozy fragrances. The times I've worn it, I feel like I've accidently poured a whiskey sour on my shirt, although I admit my impression may be unique - none of the BN reviews mention whisky. The drydown is quite nice, with lots of patchouli, vanilla, and sandalwood.

    I have tried all three, but years apart. The Heritage EDT sounds better for me, as I like my scents to be a little "louder".

    As for JHL, I bought Burberry London yesterday, so I think my "boozy" quota has been met.

    With Heritage edp vs. edt it's not so much about richer or stronger, but smoother and rounder. Both smell great and have good longevity, but the edp has a more polished vibe, to me.

    Great choices! They belong to my most favorite category, the semi-oriental spicy chypres. Most recently reformulated they are still in good condition. May I suggest another warm and masculine scent, a rich oriental: Ambre Fétiche by Annick Goutal. Or maybe a rich aromatic fougère: Le 3me Homme de Caron.

    Try Bois du Portugal. Very warm, very masculine. Tough to pull off in warm weather, though.

    I know that the Creed lovers always disagree with me on this, but I find NY to be a much better scent than BDP and much less expensive too. They are similar enough that you really don't need one if you have the other.
