    Ambre Narguile probably out of that list.

    I voted Fille en Aiguilles only because its been a long, long time since I've sample MR. I'm sure that would be a great acquisition as I vaguely remember it being great.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    Ambre Narguille needs some love. Musc Ravageur gets all the guys. And if you get AN in the 4-pack travel set, you can become acquainted with 3 more of Jean Claude Ellena's scents, and maybe even become an Hermès follower!

    I voted for FeA, but I see the majority voted Musc Ravageur. However, if you want a powerful musc, I would actually go for Muscs Kubilai Khan, which, to me, is richer (and cheaper too).

    I cannot decide. I will just rank them.

    Rank 1 - Musc Ravageur
    Tie 2 - Ambre Narguile and Filles en Aiguilles
    3 - VIW

    I don't recommend blind buying MR at all. I love gourmand fragrances (New Haarlem, L'Instant Extreme, A*Men, etc.), but do not like MR (yet), because of its sharp clove note. It's definitely a mature scent. So, I'd suggest that you buy a small decant and sample it first.

    I note that the majority says about MR.
    But, what would be appropriate for the spring and summer months ahead?

    I would rather an appropriate scent for spring and summer. Without of course prejudice to any heavier which, with controlled use, can be more "summery"

    For Spring and summer I'd go with Virgin Island Water.

    How would you describe this perfume? More lime-y or coconutty?

    I notice that most of the votes collected by the MR, followed by FeA. A better option would be the second I think, because of the warm months that follow. Isn't it?

    No, I hugely enjoy Musc Ravageur in summer. Use it for your dates at night under the Greek stars and a warm breeze!

    Musc Ravageur by far.

    The pool will be more fair if you put Tobacco Vanille in the list.

    Seems more like a pick the odd one out list! - virgin island water!

    My favorite of these 4 is Musc Ravageur. If you love them all equally and you can only purchase one I'd recommend you buy the one that is the most different from what you currently have in your collection. This will give you more variety in your wardrobe.
    Oriscent, AgarAura Pure Ouds, Creed, LIDGE, Patou Pour Homme, tons of niche and rare stuff for sale!

    I'm a fun of Serge Lutens (I have Ambre Sultan and Chergui), so maybe it will come to FeA
