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!

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.
I haven't tried all from this house but Feuilles de Tabac is my most favorite out of the 4-5 I have tried.
Current Top 5
1. Creed Aventus
2. A*Men Pure Malt
3. L'instant Extreme
4. Nasomatto Duro
5. CDG - Kyoto
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?
