Try Antaeus by Chanel. A bold leather.
Noble Vetiver, vetiver but not in excess. Same for Noble Cedre. Both by Chopard.
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!
Tom Ford For Men Extreme: patchouli, figs, lemons, truffle and cedar
Tom Ford For Men: citrus, violet leaf, amber, cedar, leather and patchouli
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.
Carbone de Balmain

I would say try ysl l'homme, very nice scent.
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 ...
Thank you so much for the insights.
- 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
Creed Aventus (SOTD)
Chanel Allure Homme Sport
Chanel Allure Homme Sport Cologne Sport (love it!! fresh and long lasting)
Hi.... maybe you can try 1 Million from Paco Rabbane or Born Wild from Ed Hardy.
