    l have only tried Tubereuse Couture; it's very nice with notes of papyrus & sugar cane which give it a crisp character, & a wonderful musky drydown. l think it would work very well on a guy.

    I have Bois Blond and it is an excellent fragrance with unique notes that smell like wet hay, spice and wood. The rain has momemtarily stopped and you smell the fresh wet hay in the field, and the fragrant woods surrounding you.
    I rate it 8.25/10.0

    "Bois Blond by Parfumerie Generale is a oriental woody fragrance for women and men. Bois Blond was introduced in 2007. The nose behind this fragrance is Pierre Guillaume. The fragrance features white tobacco, amber, arbutus, musk, galbanum and cedar."

    Default Re: What's your favorites from Parfumerie Generale?

    No.7 Cologne Grand Siecle (I now prefer Uomo by Lorenzo Villoresi and Fiero by Xerjoff instead of this)
    No.9 Yuzu Ab Irato

    I didn't like any from their private collection.

    L'Ombre Fauve is my fave, but I have to say that I dislike the house's sweet note running through most creations. Bois Blond is definitely a quite unique and interesting one that I am still in the process of making up my mind from the sample I have.

    L'Ombre Fauve. Musky, animalic fur.

    Querelle. I 've tried quite a few, but this is the only one I've found FBW. I like a couple of others, but not enough to purchase at this point. I'd say jenson has given you an excellent sample list.

    Cuir d'Iris
    Cedre Sandaraque
    L'Ombre Fauve

    Sadly, one of my favorites of his, Mio Bjao, is well-nigh impossible to find.

    Oh, and add a recommendation for Corps Et Ames, if you like classic chypres; it's special.

    l recently sampled Gardenia Grand Soir & was disappointed with it. l didn't detect any gardenia; on me it was mainly boiled sweets, (British hard candy) with a hint of soapy, green jasmine about an hour in, but otherwise pretty linear. lt was still there after 2 hours, but then l went to work & didn't even notice it fade....meh.

    An orris "leather" (it is not to me) that is heavy on the patchouli. I was quite underwhelmed, but obviously worth sampling since quite some seem to appreciate it.

    Un Crime Exotique is the only one I own by this house. I do like it, but wear it only occasionally in cooler weather.

    So far this is one of the houses that hasn't really done much for me. I haven't tried the entire line, but the ones I have tried didn't leave much of an impression.

    Many people like this line. I'm looking forward to trying some of the ones that I've missed, and perhaps my opinion will change. Some of them do sound quite interesting!

    Default Re: What's your favorites from Parfumerie Generale?

    Aomassai - by far my favourite. I like Un crime exotique, Bois de Copaiba (I find Bois Blond quite boring compared to this), Harmatan Noir and L'Oiseau de Nuit as well. And probably a few more that I can't recall right now. Great house!

  23. #23

    Default Re: What's your favorites from Parfumerie Generale?

    I have owned Aomassai and liked it very much. I also like Cedre Sandaraque.

    I have also owned Coze and Cadjmere but had to let them go, as the "furry" note that is in them and several of the other PG's that I have tried just didn't agree with me and made me feel queasy. Shame though, nice frags. Funnily enough, I get that note/feeling with Tauers LDDM too, a real shame.
    Life's a bitch. If it were a slut it'd be easy.

    Default Re: What's your favorites from Parfumerie Generale?

    I think the best of the line is Felanilla - amazing vanilla/hay/amber and iris. It's pricey but worth every penny and I think Naz has the best price on it too.

    Does Cuir d`Iris has some similar scents out there? What does it smell like?

    Looks like every new perfume by PG makes most of previous looks pale and forgettable.
    I for one am now under the spell of ...
    PRALINE DE SANTAL!

    Iris, bread, butter, roasted hazelnuts, heliotropine, wood notes - like Tilda Swinton with hazelnuts.
    Some details are from Aomassai, some from Haramens - so the PG style is the very same.
    Me LOVE!
    Vetiver The Great!!!

    "Wood notes" - this is Praline de Santal - how prominent is the sandalwood? I'd hope it would be highlighted with such a title! I have some on order, along with the other new PG scent "Tonkamande".

    I've been revisiting all my samples from PG and must say I'm really, really, really enjoying them - especially while reading through this thread.

    I no longer have my samples Aomassai and Coze but I remember really liking them - need to re-order samples of those. I also used to have a sample of Haramens that I remember being absolutely unbelievable, until I emailed PG and found out they could custom make a 100ml bottle for me to the tune of 275 Euros (including shipping).

    L'Ombre Fauve ever-so-slightly reminds me of Ambre Sultan.
    Bois Blond and Cedar Sanaraque both remind me of masculine interpretations of Aomassai, although the Cedar Sanaraque is definitely more in the sweet/gourmand realm than Bois Blond.

    Querelle seems to have a lot of love in this thread but to me it is very sharp and almost aldehydic -- it borders on the smell of a public bathroom that has just been cleaned. ;(

    Right now, lacking samples of Coze, Aomassai and Haramens to jog my memory, I must say Bois Blond and Cedar Sanaraque are incredibly good. Sadly it appears Bois Blond was not given the 30ml bottle treatment as some other PG's were? Or am I simply looking in the wrong area?
