    Question Cinnamon, cinnamon. My kingdom for some cinnamon.

    Ladies and Gentlemen I am, as you know, a devoted wearer of Oriental fragrances so, with this in mind, together with my love for vanilla, incense and heliotrope, I am tempted by the beckoning of sirens in the distant waters suggesting that I buy Costes 2. What think you of this quest?

    Is Demeter's Cinnamon Bark worse than his Cinnamon Bite?

    Just wear your Demeter Cinnamon Bark and add some Molinard Vanilla. Save yourself a few bucks and a "Kingdom"

    Have you sampled it N_Tesla? Definitley sample before purchase on this one. I did not love it, or even really like it. Search for some cinnamon threads for some much better options IMHO.

    try some PdN stuff with cinnamon. Some have lots, and it can clearly be felt.

    Also: Liz Claiborne-Spark-cinnamon shower gel like, creamy. It's very much alike Scent Intense by Costume National, only instead the pencil shavings note, it has strong cinnamon.

    and...Organza Incecence-I think it's totally unisex, since it smells like a cinnamon and walnuts doghnut.

    The original Costes has cinnamon, and I like it very much. I have not tried Costes 2, but the reviews I have read do not sound very promising.

    I've only smelled a few frags here and there, lol, but I find Hermessences Ambre Narguile has quite a cinniniininininimon thing going on, along with the rest of it. Seeing as how you like orientals, I'm sure ambers too, I find this one quite different even amonst my many ambers.

    Some related threads for more ideas:

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    w3pearl; Organza Incandescence sounds perfect but tough to find. Dillards has a 100ml in a new type bottle for $97.

    How about buying the powerful EL Cinnabar and layer it with vanilla and incense?

    Cinnamon, eh?
    Well, perhaps you could try Smell Bent's Horny Little Devil. Plenty of spice in that, in fact it was too much for me at first. And bonus, it's cheap as chips!

    I got a few samples from Smell Bent recently. I think they are great value and a lot of fun. No, they are not paying me to say so... ;-)

    I didn't find Costes 2 to be a very good fragrance and the cinnamon was definitely not what I think you're looking for.

    My favorite cinnamon centered fragrances is Dawn Spencer Hurwitz's Sienna it is an intense cinnamon stick of a fragrance.
