    Does Givenchy Gentleman count as an oriental? That's the only thing close to an oriental I wear frequently.

    I wear orientals most of the time, and if memory serves me sharp enough, I believe it would be a rough tie between Chergui, Feminite Du Bois (Shiseido) and Ambre Sultan.

    Recently, it has been less of FdB and Sultan, and quite a bit of Felanilla, L'Ombre Fauve, MKK. There is an alluring comfort that these scents induce for me. I love to wear them a couple of hours before sleeping.

    The surviving constant seems to be Chergui. I feel good wearing it at home as I do heading out.

    Heritage EdP and Habit Rouge EdP, followed distantly by Opium EdP. For some reason, I prefer orientals in their EdP form. I think it's because they're richer yet more subtle; sandalwood, myrrh and other spices can be a bit overpowering when in EdTs, IMO.

    I'm not real big on the oriental frags, but I suppose the best in my collection is Ted Lapidus Pour Lui.

    This one is a bit of a challenge to categorize. Maybe it's both? Pluran calls is it a "woody oriental chypre" in his BN review.

    In either case, I do find myself reaching for it often.

    The title of this thread makes me want to start a "Your Flee-From Oriental" thread. I'm pretty sure most of us know at least one!

    Ambre 114 is my go to oriental, with Ambre Precieux coming a close second, and Habit Rouge EdT when I want something a little lighter.

    It's been the reformulated Nicole Miller for men, if you consider that one an oriental.

    Wouldn't say I went to it the most, but the definition of oriental to me is Opium, the women's version. I sneak a little from the bottle I bought my wife 10 years ago or so. It's quite nice. Love smelling it on her, too.

    Go-to oriental from my collection: gotta say Chergui.
