Thread: Like Fou D'Absinthe but...
I'm looking for an scent very similar to Fou D'Absinthe (I love it!) but not so transparent and boozy; a bit thick, dense and resinous. Any idea?
Maybe not to brief but probably worth at least trying: Memoir Man (for the opening, it evolves into more of a frankincense after a while) and there is also that Nasomatto one . . . tried it once, Absinthe (?) that I seem to recall being in the same sort of space.
I really like Fou d'Absinthe and I find Lutens Filles en Aiguilles related but it is a different scent - pine is the link between them for me.

Fille en Aiguilles or Memoir Man as mentioned, are worth a try. I have and love both!
Is the juice worth the squeeze?
Fille en Aiguilles by Serge Lutens or Aqua Allegoria Winter Delice by Guerlain

Give Dior's oud and leather a go: tobacco, oud, beeswax and honey (although it doesn't feature Fou D'Absinthe's pine content). Hard to find unfortunately...
Perhaps Absoluement Abisinthe.
