    Default I'm feeling nutty

    Lately I’ve been yearning for a ‘nutty’ fragrance.

    I love Vetiver Tonka for that roasted hazelnut accord. I also love Narciso Rodriguez EDT for that warm, almost almond/nutty heart it has above the musk once the top notes subside.

    Anything out there that is masculine and nutty?

    Grilled roasted hazelnut like notes, supported in the realm of coffee like accords? Something oriental with coffee/cocoa/nutty notes?

    Méchant Loup - honeyed hazelnuts
    Bois Farine - the raw flour accord can read like peanut butter (which sounds unpromising, but I love it, and the fragrance settles to a handsome dry woody base)
    Spray it, don’t say it…

    I gotta agree with Mechant Loup. A huge hazelnut note with something in the base which smells like coffee, even though it isn't. It smells like somebody used a McDonald's coffee cup for a spittoon for chewing tobacco- which sounds kind of nasty, but it isn't.

    Well look at that, Bois Farine - another JCE creation, I'll look into!

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. 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. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    This scent is amazing, not an icky gourmand, but a wonderfully sweet fragrance with sillage and longevity. While I may personally like darker, edgier fragrances, I have worn this - especially in cooler weather - and absolutely loved it. Antico Caruso (bows to Stylin) is so clean and almond-y it's really hard to describe, unless you get your haircuts done by an old school Italian barber. I love your illustration, Master-Classter. Bluntly put, wouldn't mind being the doctor, lol.

    This one.
    Méchant Loup is all about hazelnuts. I dislike the fragrance myself, but I dislike the smell of hazlenuts (or Filberts as they are known here). I think I even have a decant around here somewhere. Send me a PM and I will send it to you. Better off with someone who can appreciate it.
