    Default Airport shopper looking for advice

    Hi everybody :-) .

    Tomorrow I’m headed for the airport. And as usual, waiting times are best used by skimming through the different scents available at the different stores. I’d love to add a new scent to my collection, but am completely clueless as to what to look for! I own about 60 different scents, maybe 40% mainstream designer stuff, and the rest either designer "not too well known" stuff or Lutens, Creed etc.

    My current favourites are Creed Bois du Portugal, Ghost Man, Amen, Ice-Men, Burberry Brit, Lempicka, Jaipur EdP, Sander Sun, Gucci Envy, Rochas Man.

    Now - anybody with any suggestions? I'm able to sample about four or five scents before my nose clogs up, so ... let's get ready for an interesting day at the airport :-) . I'm only looking for new releases which shouldn't be older than maybe two years since I know most of the "older" scents.

    I'll be at a German and an UK airport. Any input highly appreciated :-) .

    I am fond of Cartier Roadster Sport, but I haven't seen it in duty free shops yet. Burberry London is a duty free favorite, but it sounds like you probably have sampled it already. You can find Chanel Egoiste, not the Platinum version, in airport shops. But that's more than two years old. How about Dior Fahrenheit 32? Chanel Allure Homme Blanche?

    Your tastes seems rather spread out with regards to notes etc. Allure Homme Blance is a good shout. Maybe L'eau D'Issey would suit you. Boss bottled?

    Yes, an excellent list. I'd add Guerlain L'Instant Pour Homme Extreme.

    The re-issued Aramis series seem to turn up in DFS so you might find Aramis Havanna.

    Another Duty Free only I bought that is not dear and worth having is the Estee Lauder Brasil Dream for Men. Actually quite a nice throwback to the 80s vibe, oakmoss et al.
