    Default My wardrobe is asking for a new addition...please recommend

    Hi all! I've missed you all here due to work but just had to take some time out to join my favourite bunch of people!!

    I'm hoping to get some suggestions on what to get next. I haven't bought perfume in a while as my collection felt quite complete...until now!! After reading the thread about the "older basenoters", I felt the need for a new addition (again)

    The ones top of mind are:
    - Kouros
    - Grey Flannel
    - Mitsouko EDP
    - L'Heure Bleue EDP
    - Miss Dior (vintage)

    I'm not one for the watery stuff nowadays launched as "perfume". The ones in my wardobe I reach for most recently are Antaeus, Yatagan, Bandit, JHL, Opium PH EdP... I enjoy fragrances that are complex and shows presence. Labels like "old lady/man" don't exist in my world so please suggest me the stuff from times gone by

    The only thing that doesn't really work for me (yet) is aldehydes. Also, please no niche as the stuff is not available here.

    Thanks!

    Have you tried Michael for Men (Kors)? Also, there is one that is little known, but I think you would like: Tristano (men's).

    Haha, everything I can think to recommend off the top of my head is in your wardrobe already. Very nice selection of frags you have.

    Hmm... well you have A*Men and H.M. by Hanae Mori in your wardrobe. Should you be interested in another gourmand you cannot go wrong with Rochas Man.

    I am also thinking you might like JHL by Aramis, a strong and distinctive fragrance contemporary to Antaeus and similar in strength if not necessarily specifically in smell. Basically, if you like "80's"-type fragrances, you stand a good chance of being into this one.

    Eau d'Orange Verte might be nice for the summer coming up. It's fresh and citrusy, but the base is a slightly animalic leather that feels classic, although not "dated." I think it can suit anyone at any age, granted you want to smell fresh with a retro vibe.

    Kouros, Grey Flannel.

    Kouros is offensive, but sometimes you may want to offend. Grey Flannel smells antiquated but well made.

    Have you tried Rochas Lui?

    Hmmm, a decent, strong powerhouse I would like to add is Bijan Men (white cap) - strong, masculine oakmossy fougere.
    Grey flannel and kouros are great, too.
    Maybe even vintage monsieur rochas.
