    Default Recommend a fragrance for the person above you based on wardrobe

    Don't know if this has been done yet. Go on it'll be fun you can go as many times as you want. This will encourage people to fill out their wardrobe and give people suggestions at the same time on new purchases.

    For Mr. Ctran019, Serge Lutens Chergui. Looks to me like you're moving into a more spicy, adventuresome direction. A good addition to any wardrobe.

    For Mr. andym72, I recommend Roger & Gallet Extra Vieille. It's a classic cologne that still remains fresh, high-quality, and fashion-relevant. It would play off the more modern elements in your wardrobe very well. Relatively inexpensive, too.

    I don't post my wardrobe (it's too big, I'm too lazy to catalogue it), but you can take a look at some of my posts to get an idea of what I like and wear. I'm thinking I need another super/spicy/rich oriental, top of the line quality. What would you recommend?

    For Mr. SculptureOfSoul, you might want to try Roger Gallet Open. That would be a good fit. I heard it's been discontinued. You'll want to snatch up a vintage bottle anyway.

    It's not the spiciest but it sure is super and rich! Another suggestion that is very sweet and yet spicy, very rich and truly indulgent, with gourmand tones throughout, is Tonka Imperiale by Guerlain. Absolutely amazing scent. Another that I've heard good things about that sounds like it might fit the bill is Back to Black by Kilian.

    More good insights. I am dying to try TI Guerlain; about to buy blind, if I can find an acceptable price. It seems right up my alley. Back to Black - I'm beginning to like it. I've only sampled a few times, but yeah, I could see a little growing attraction there. There's a lot in Kilian that I'm temped by. Most likely one of my next lines to explore.

    All good recommendations. Thanks!

    L'Essence Must de Cartier pour Homme for Mr. Volley2. You'll love Cartier's take on spicy Oriental. Seems like a good fit with the rest of your superb wardrobe.

    I get some bitterness, almost like dandelion sap, in the development of the very green floral Fleur de Liane by L'Artisan. It's worth a sniff!

    Kenzo Jungle Pour Homme. Very great opening. and drying down is similar to M7, IMO. but more exciting. Give it a try.

    Drakkar Noir. A green spicy fragrance.
    Bijan Black. i like it

    For Neurosis - It looks like you like your scents rich and sweet. I think you might be a great candidate for the legendary Musk Ravageur... I also thought of Creed Original Santal, but I see you've tried it but not rated it yet. OS is my favorite rich, sweet frag. You also may really like Guerlain L'Instant pour Homme - it's a good combination of sweet, spicy vanilla and rich green and tobacco elements.

    Rogalal might find satisfaction in some of the Amouage line. Especially Jubilation XXV, which headlines my wishlist
    Looking for Hermessence Ambre Narguile and for TFPB Moss Breches (50ml bottle), willing to pay in cashdollars. PM me!

    Hmmm - I'm not very good at keeping track, short attention span

    SOS most definitely needs to try Cologne du Parfumeur (but you knew that already) and everybody needs to try Histoires de Parfums 1725 I reckon

    I suspect HdP 1969 might also please those in more gourmand / oriental mode.

    @ Mr Reasonable

    It's tough recommending a fragrance to someone with such a diverse & impressive wardrobe but I'll try.

    By Kilian - A Taste of Heaven

    If you rate Nicolai pour Homme to be a 5 star frag (which it is IMHO) I assume you'd love this one.

    Default Re: Recommend a fragrance for the person above you based on wardrobe

    @ Jathanas - Chanel Coromandel & Floris Vetiver

    @ Mr. Reasonable - Boss Selections & Baldessarini Concentrate

    @ SOS - Montale Black Oudh - open up your eyes to this creamy rose heaven. just get past the top.

    Hi, I'm really new to this, so hope the person beneath me can make a rec for whoever still needs one above.

    I know my wardrobe is really limited (essentially gifts over the years), but I wonder which of the scents would be best for winter. I realize they are all more summery, and frankly I don't especially like any of them, but if you can give me an idea of what in my wardrobe would be least bad for the winter season while I'm working on trying out and buying a few new ones, that would be great. Thanks so much!

    How does one recommend a fragrance for the person based on the wardrobe, if you don't have a god dam wordrobe or a list of the fragrances you've gotten as gifts ?

    I recommend Acqua di Million ( Acqua di gio + 1 million ) mixed for winter as you get both aspects of the seasons all in one.

    Good thread, ctran019.

    Btw I see you have quite a no. of fresh scents. So I won't recommend another. Instead, perhaps you might wish to expand your wardrobe and build in a little more versatility with something more urbane and edgy like Bulgari Black.
