    For you, I'd strongly recommend sampling Ungaro Diva and Gucci No. 3 parfum. For something much more aggressive in style, MCM Success has loads of honey.

    Have you smelled Paco Rabanne Pour Homme? Not a chypre, but a wonderful honey-laden fougere.

    BTW - I did not know that Rose Barbare was a honey prominent chypre. It's been ages since I tested it, and I remember it not making an impression on me then. It was, IMO, such a departure for Kurkdjian.

    I recommend sampling Que Sais-Je? (Jean Patou) and Sheherazade (Jean Desprez).

    L.T.Piver's Cuir de Russie is my favourite honey scent, though when I first tried it, the honey and leather combination smelled a bit curious.

    This sounds interesting to me as I've just acquired Paco Rabannes's Tenere. I get a honeyed leather from it along with a healthy dose of florals. How does this CdR relate?
