    Default I already own Oxford & Cambridge should I buy Parfums de Nicola´ Pour Homme?

    Are they very different lavender fragrances?

    I can't answer about O&C because I haven't smelled it.

    Nicolai PH is very different from Guerlain's Mouchoir de Monsieur. Very.

    If you like O&C you could try Crown Fougere. I haven't tried the other one.

    I do love Oxford & Cambridge but want something different.
    Would Parfums de Nicola´ Pour Homme fit the bill?

    In order to come to the point: I absolutely love it and even though I can understand why its reviewed rather negatively or at least neutraly on this board, I wish that more people would give it a try!

    Its slightly melancholic (albeit not dark), calm and it moves perfectly from a cool start (mint and lavender) to warmer middle and basenotes. It glistenes very beautyfully between different poles: warm and cool, melancholic and serene. Its will surely not work as a classical signature scent but for me its one of THE frags linked to these quiet, indecisive days in spring or fall when time seems to stand still and invites for inner walks....A very well done pastel and one of the most beautyfull fougeres I know...

    Unfortunately on the reviews of this board the cool and melancholic side of Pour Homme comes very much to the fore while the warm and serene side (which is explicitly mentioned on the VERY positive reviews of the womens blogs and boards like MUA or bois de jasmin) is missed out a little bit....

    IMO its perfectly balanced..... All in all the Parfums de Nicolai line has much more to offer as the great New York and after Baladin and a few others got more attention lately I think its time that also Pour Homme gets more attention!

    If you like fougeres, if you like lavender, if you like watercolours and pastels, if you like serene-melancholic scents, if you like the warm/cool interplay: give it a try!

    Melancholic and serene. That's perfect! I'll add introspective as well.

    I do suspect you'd like it, Neal, but of course it's impossible to know for sure until you've tried it.

    It's not that similar to O&C, though, and not at all similar to Mouchoir. I enjoy both of those, but love NpH, too.

    Just took a leap of faith and bought a 30 ml bottle at BeautyHabit.com

    They are significantly different to me.

    Smart purchase. Great fragrance. I like it better than the other two you mentioned. It's more youthful as well.

    It's one of those that just smells great. A unique accord that's impossible to perceive until you try it.

    It's easy to wear, too.
