    Default Looking for the next scent with cloves

    Hello everyone. I am asking for your personal recommendations for a frag. that has a prominent clove accord. I am a big fan of Musc Ravageur from F. Malle. If the frag. includes incense or other spices so much the better. This is my Christmas present to me. I have been a good boy.

    Thanks for your help. Rex

    Noir Epices & Idole by Lubin might also be worth a look.

    I've yet to familiarize with MR/Malle, however of what I have I enjoy Dunhill Edition, Halston Catalyst, and Anglia's Park Royal. They all satisfy in the clove(and nutmeg) area. Depending on what you're looking for, imo Catalyst carries one of the best bang-for-your-buck values out there.

    If I recall..St Johns Island Spice seemed to have an overt clove in its top notes.

    Jacomo de Jacomo is one I used to wear back in the day.
    Your nostrils, which will dilate immesurably in unspeakable contentment, in motionless ecstasy, will ask nothing better for space, for they will be full of fragrance, as if perfumes and incense; for they will be glutted with complete happiness, like angels who dwell in the peace and magnificence of pleasent heaven.
    (From Maldoror by Comte de Lautreamont)

    Comme des Garçons Parfum: clove and rose. I find it quite similar to Old Spice, but less sweet ad more spicy.

    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

    How about L'Artisan's Tea for Two? Personally, I think it should have been called Droves of Cloves.
