    Lightbulb Looking for suggestions for my collection

    Dear Basenotes-Members,

    thanks to you and your helpful threads I was able to expand my collection of fragrances and add some nice ones to it. I tried a broad approach, covering the basics as well as certain 'genres' like oriental, fruity, floral and so on, but now I am wondering if I missed a certain "direction" of fragrances I maybe should take a look at.

    My current collection consists of the following fragrances:

    L'Artisan Parfumeur:
    Ananas Fizz
    L'Eau du Navigateur
    Tea for Two
    Havana Vanille

    Serge Lutens:
    Muscs Koublai Khan
    Fumerie Turque

    Montale:
    White Aoud
    Black Aoud

    Hermès:
    Terre D'Hermes
    Eau d'orange verte

    Creed:
    Virgin Island Water (only Creed I like, sampled the usual suspects GIT, SMW, Himalaya, MI)

    Frederic Malle:
    Musc Ravageur

    Aus Liebe zum Duft:
    Aus Liebe zum Duft No.1

    Andy Tauer:
    Lonestar memories
    L'Air du désert marocain

    Mâitre Parfumeur et Gantier:
    Bahiana



    Am I missing certain types? Thanks for your help, guys .

    How about something from Guerlain? Hertitage, Habit Rouge, Vetiver, Derby, Mouchoir de Monsieur, Spiriteuse Double Vanille, etc......

    Or maybe explore some other classic houses such as Chanel and Caron.

    It seems in terms of genre, you have pretty much covered most bases! Very enviable collection there, some of those are my favorites as well. Other than maybe a marine-aquatic, you could explore some oldies (L'eau Du Navigateur seems to be the least recently introduced scent you have? I own and love it too), powerhouses 80's style?

    Where's the Rive Gauche?

    How about a classic fragrance like Armani Eau, Versace pour Homme, Eau Sauvage, Monsieur Givenchy, Chanel pour Monsieur, etc.?

    Or a more or less traditional style fougere like Rive Gauche or Azzaro?

    I like Joe's suggestion of something from Guerlain. Hard to go wrong there!

    Thanks for the input guys . I will look into your much appreciated suggestions. By the way, do you think I am covered on the Vetiver front? Looking at Guerlain Vetiver now...oh and I am looking for an excuse to buy Andy Tauer's Vetiver Dance

    Yeah some vetiver-prominent one would be nice. Guerlain Vetiver is not bad, but my favorites that I will recommend is TDC sel de vetiver and Lalique Encre Noire. I am sure the rest will have many more fantastic vetiver scents to add.

    I suggest something from the Aqua Di Parma lineup (intensa did it for me)
    also maybe PdN New york or BdP or Heritage, something for those special nights

    last suggestion would be a solid vetiver, everyone needs some vetiver in their life (to me TdH doesn't count
    maybe Encre Noir, Malle VE, etc
    Off-Site Decants =) (updated 05/16/12)

    noggs - Did you mean to suggest Versace L'Homme instead of Versace pour Homme?

    I personally was not fond of Vetiver Dance. Some I would recommend are Guerlain Vetiver (vintage), Givenchy Vetyver, Lalique Encre Noir, Chanel Sycomore, Annick Goutal Vetiver, Etro Vetiver or Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier Route du Vetiver (vintage).

    Chypre Chypre Chypre!
    I recommend trying Mitsouko!
    If fragrance has a gender, so does all art.
