    Default Trying to find a new scent

    Original formula Chanel 19 prefume was my favorite scent but alas...and the current eau de toilette doesn't measure up. I also love the Herve Leger Crystal (?) that was originally exclusive to Nordstrom. They are miles apart, I know. But they both have, forgive me, I am no expert, an undertone that is very sensual, deep.
    Looking for something that not everyone else is wearing. Suggestions?
    Thanks,
    Whereis19

    Hi whereis19! I think you'll love Heure Exquise. It's similar to No.19, but has a bit of civet to kick it off, less galbanum, more iris and rose, less moss and more sandalwood. You'll love it more or less LOL!

    After I realized what I wrote with all those mores and lesses, I thought I'd add "more or less" because it you'll probably love it "to an undetermined degree"...and it just went with the flow! It was a cheesy joke, just ignore it

    I agree.
    I think of l'Heure exquise as the kinder, gentler Chanel No. 19.
    It is lovely.

    Hi whereis19, welcome to basenotes! l'Heure exquise is a great suggestion. But, you haven't given us much info to go on, really! Read the sotd (scent of the day) threads for ideas, read the reviews, and sample sample sample! (a lot of what is very popular here, is still not what "everyone" is wearing!)

    Silences by Jacomo - on some people smells quite similar to Chanel 19

    Magie noire - vintage only

    Trussardi action - not easy to find as discontinues

    Vol de nuit - dark, green , woody

    Aliage - very aromatic

    Coriandre Jean Couturier - bitter green aromatic chypre. Not very mossy on me, but classified as a chypre
