    Default Caramel, vanilla and Petroleum

    Bought a car wax yesterday and it smells absolutely heavenly. Caramel and vanilla made a bit more edgy with the petroleum distillates. Could sniff it all day .

    Anyone know of any fragrances that may mimic this?

    Actually that's not a bad suggestion and I have Black. It is like Black but with a strong caramel note and maybe a wee bit sweeter. Probably sounds awful, but it is v nice. Am waxing now LOL

    Maybe try layering Aomassai and Black!!

    Seconding Bulgari Black; it's the closet you'll get to that mix, in my opinion.

    Oh! Seems you've found it. Perhaps Japon Noir? It had an oddly petrochemical top note, if memory serves me.

    Actually Patchouli 24. Same nose as Bvlgari black. But more intense than black.
    Also, they say nostalgia. I have yet to smell it.

    for swap/sale:

    Nostalgia might resemble, as others have said. But the top is stronger and more petroleum, and the drydown smoother and sweeter than Black. Black remains rubbery into the drydown.

    Maybe A Men? Not petroleum, but it has a prominent tar note, along with patchouli that dries down into a caramel/chocolate base.

    Santal Blanc, Serge Lutens, was like this for me.

    Now that you mention it, I'm wondering if I can find something wearable that smells like Marvel Mystery Oil.

    Ambrarem does have a petroleum and vanilla mix, but lacks the caramel. Perhaps it's worth checking out if you like the combination but I dislike it.

    Well, no caramel, but vanilla + petroleum = vintage Shalimar extrait by Guerlain.
