    Default Based on what I like, are there any other MUST-try colognes?

    I've spent some time going through samples and figuring out what I like and don't like. Based on this list, are there any others that I MUST try? Note that I think already have enough colognes for my weekly rotation, but I'm just wondering if there's anything out there that I would regret not checking out. An explanation of why along your recommendation would be helpful. Thank you for the help.

    Indifferent:
    Azzaro Pour Homme
    La Nuit
    YSL M7 (a little strong for me)
    A*Men (prefer Pure Malt)
    Aqua Di Parma Colonia (prefer TDH)

    Dislike:
    Egoiste (don't like spicy smell)
    Vetiver
    Antaeus (same as Egoiste)

    Already on my try list:
    Dior Homme Intense
    Pure Havane

    Fou d'Absinthe by L'Artisan Parfumeur - One is initially treated to a bittersweet blast from the stimulating melange of greenness spurred by ansinthe, with its dusty, dry, medicinal dimensions; angelica, with its heavy, sweet, musky attributes; star anise, with its smoky, rich, licorice character and black currant, with its strong, fruity bouquet tinged with a cat urine slant. Percolating with a faint backdrop of a coniferous forest, this somewhat brisk blend meanders to the inviting heart. Here, woody clove, spicy-sweet ginger, cinnamon-like nutmeg and a hint of lively pepper shower the green opening, and impart their warmth, while resourceful patchouli adds a warm earthiness with its slight nutty and musky overtures. The foresty background is still here, and carries this flavorful concoction to the awaiting base. Robust conifers take center stage with the fresh and slightly camphorous woodiness of pine needles and the balsamic, christmas tree aroma of firs. Cistus bestows its terpenic and pine-like facets and vague illusions of amber and leather. A faintly rugged and quintessentially outdoorsy drydown ensues. This all-season, masculine composition has good projection, a 12-inch, scent cloud, and very good longevity, 10 hours; and should be experienced, especially on cool evenings.
