    Default 2

    Just got 2 simple questions for you all.


    1. Anything like La Nuit without the powder?

    2. Next blind buy: Eau Des Beaux for a sweet warm woody rather than citrus and floral? Any other formidable options for sweet/woody?

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve other individuals' acknowledgement or respect.

    And from the same company, Ambre et Santal.
    That juice has some fierce strength to it, and garners quite a few compliments (as sweet scents often do).

    Nice. More or less everything they offer. This one is going to be tough.

    That rose, vanilla, sandalwood combo of Ambre et Santal is actually peaking my interest. I don’t consider myself a soft sweet scent kind of guy, but that would definitely fill a gap in my collection.

    More expensive, but if I were in the market for a sweet, warm, woody scent I'd grab a bottle of Egoiste by Chanel.
    Aventus? Never heard of it.

    Looks elusive, but if I run across it Iíll definitely check it out.

    Every time I go to the local fragrance shop they only have platinum, which I thought was terrible, but Iíll definitely go out of my way to try this. I looked it up and the only thing I see as a bit concerning is cinnamon. Iím not a huge fan. If anything Iíll grab this come this spring, though.

    Platinum and Egoiste are very different. Try Pi.

    Hanae Mori's HiM is another sweet/warm/woody option that could rival Eau des Baux.

    La Nuit without the powder? Try Ambre by Baldessarini. There's a tiny bit of powder somewhere in it, but it's subtle.

    1. Perhaps La Nuit as EDP

    2. Perhaps Guerlain Homme Eau Boisee
