    I love and own Fleurs de Sel. There's nothing quite like it! Terre d'Iris is also very nice, and unique among iris fragrances IMO. This thread reminds me that I need to get out my samples of Terre de Bois and Figue Amere and actually try them one day. Thanks for this thread, Jenson!

    These are two of the three I love and own.

    The third is Geranium Bourbon - on me an invigorating mix of geranium with roses and a hint of booze.

    Thank you for chiming in ladies! appreciate it!

    The word Bourbon doesnt get used so much in perfumes and, being a strong fan of patchouli/chocolate based scents; i get a feeling it'll fit in my to tastes... I have never experienced this accord in a very prominent way in scents...but, i often relate the overall feel of Kilian Cruel Intentions or Tom Ford Black Orchid to bourbon... is that a right assesement to make...?

    So, Geranium Bourbon and Vetiver Bourbon... yummy! need.to.sample.asap.

    Vetiver Bourbon is to me what Montale's Red Vetyver would smell like if it was done by a mature and competent nose. The accords are really balanced and even-handed.

    Miller Harris has some of the best skin scents ever. I also enjoy that they have fruity notes that actually last 10+ hours.. something I find rare in a perfume. I really enjoyed the decants i had of both Le Petit Grain and Piment des Baies. Piment being labeled as a woman's frag -- though it definitely isn't. It smells like lemon/sugar cookies and just keeps getting better and better. I've tried about 5 or 6 from their house but these are the only 2 that are really bottle worthy for me.

    +3 Cuir d' Oranger. Warm and inviting leather.
    +1 En Sens de Bois. Wonderfully dry incense woods scent - my favorite from Miller Harris.
    +2 Vetiver Bourbon.

    These fragrances are hard to find for some reason. Not many places sell them in the U.S. and not many online either. Why not?
