    Default Expert advice needed!! :D

    I am an absolute newcomer to this world, and I am fascinated with the descriptions of and the rhetoric involved with describing scents. Consequently I don't know how to describe what I need, but I shall try:

    I used to like heavy, musky, 'manly' scents, sometimes sweet but definitely peppery and dark, and often smoky. I now want to smell clean and delicious, like a newly dry-cleaned cashmere jumper. I want a scent that makes you take a second sniff, as opposed to knock you out unawares. I dont like too strong a fruit note. Id prefer a warmer floral character. I recently bought 'Kiton for men' which I find interesting and right in many ways, but I'm concerned about its die down. Please bestow your wonderful expertise.

    A great clean scent is mugler cologne. Smells almost soapy but so good

    White Linen and Pleasures (both by Estee Lauder) are prototypically clean (in the sense of soap). For clean as in "ironed", I second Andrew with Mugler Cologne, which smells like iron steam.

    Give Prada Amber Pour Homme a sniff... Great clean scent that will last all day.
