    Cool Too much time with same scents. Need new recommendations.

    Hi there,

    I need some advice.

    In the last few years, my fragrances still the same (in order of preference):

    - Terre d'Hermes (Hermes);
    - L'Instant (Guerlain);
    - PI (Givenchy);
    - L'eau D'issey (Issey Miyake);
    - Jazz (Yves Saint Laurent);

    I always have a bottle of each. Today, i'm in the market because my L'eau D'issey is running out, and i was thinking to try some new fragrance.

    Can you do some recommendations? I will do a blind buy.

    It's not to replace L'eau D'issey, i will buy it anyway.
    I'm a brazilian IT entrepreneur, and have 35 years old.

    Thanks and Cheers from Brazil!

    Try Antaeus by Chanel. A bold leather.
    Noble Vetiver, vetiver but not in excess. Same for Noble Cedre. Both by Chopard.

    for swap/sale:

    Tom Ford Gray Vetiver is very nice, I suspect you would like that. A very versatile citric vetiver.

    +1 for vetivers. The Tom Ford, as said, but also Guerlain. And if you can afford, my two favorites, Sycomore by Chanel and Vetiver Extraordinaire by Malle.

    Uomo? Moschino by Moschino - a wonderful, masculine, fresh, outdoorsy scent with a smattering of spice ... an all-season fragrance with excellent longevity, and is inexpensive ...

    Hey guys...

    Thank you so much for the insights.

    I bought:

    - Vetiver (Guerlain);
    - Encre Noire (Lalique);
    - Black Sun (Salvador Dali); just 20bucks for 4.2oz

    Antaeus, Sycomore and Tom Ford's are very expensive to go blind, so, i will try them later.

    In this line of high brands (chanel, amouage, tom ford), any Creed recommendation?

    Boy you don't fool around! I was just going to caution you on blind buying per se; but it looks like you have already done so. So how do you like your blinds? How do you like your Guerlain?

    Harkening back to your previous, I have been mightily impressed with Amouage. Tom Ford I found much too strong, esp. in the tenacious longevity (enough already!). Guerlain is always worth sampling. And please note that word, "sampling". When you say "blind buy" I hope you are just buying samples, forsooth!

    Creed is overpriced and over-hyped.

    To my nose Encre Noire is very similar to Sycomore, but Sycomore is just a little bit sweeter.

    In the line of high brands i like to wear here in Brazil:

    Guerlain Homme L'Eau
    Lalique White
    Creed Aventus (SOTD)
    Creed GIT
    Chanel Allure Homme Sport
    Chanel Allure Homme Sport Cologne Sport (love it!! fresh and long lasting)
