    Default Looking for a "nut" note... suggestions?

    I'm looking for some recomendations for frags with strong NUT notes, particularly Hazelnut (add cocoa and you've got nutella...mmmmm...)


    Something in MPG Santal Noble made me think of almond butter...

    One that comes to mind is L'Artisan's Mechant Loup
    NEW SPLIT - Tom Ford Lavender Palm 50ml in Atomizer - DISCONTINUED!. .

Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window.

    Herrera for men has a nutty aspect to my nose, though according to the directory there isn't such a not listed. Maybe it's the cedar that gives it that quality. I'm sure there are better suggestions to come for you, though.

    For hazelnut, try L'Artisan Parfumeur's Méchant Loup.

    I'm particularly interested in anything like a smokey roasted salty nut. Or something oily and milky/creamy with wood. Etc...

    I've never smelled it so I don't know if it's smokey or salty, but just yesterday actiasluna was talking about Craving by Perfume by Nature in the sotd thread. It's apparently nutella plus vetiver, sandalwood, incense and musk, so that might be something you'd want to check out. And if it sounds good don't miss Redneck Perfumisto's expanded review, provided within her post.

    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

    Parfumerie Generale Aomassai , nuts and caramel with a wonderful woody base , I think that might fit the bill

    Aomassai by PG ~ without hesitation!



    (also, Guerlains Oriental Brulant - it's mostly white almond)

    For Hazelnut, you must try Aomassai from Parfumerie Generale!

    Edit: Ooops, nevermind, It's already been mention.

    I think Serge Lutens "Bois Oriental" will meet all of your requests, it's the most "nutty" scent I can think of. Roasted salty/sweet nuts with a violet touch YUM!!
