    Default Expand wardrobe and need advise

    I am planning to make some new purchases and need advise on what to buy next.

    My current wardrobe:
    Angel Therry Mugler
    L'instant extreme, Guerlin
    Terre Hermes EDP
    Damascus Oud by Montale
    Black Oud by Montale
    Bulgari Black - dont fancy the rubbery scent that much
    Cool Water
    Rochas Man
    Honea Morea HM
    L'eau D'Issey
    Ambre Sultan - Serge Lutten

    For parties:
    Le Male
    Forgivable by Sean Jean

    GIT - coming soon
    MI - coming soon
    Noir de Noir - coming soon
    Tobacco Vanilla - coming soon
    M7 vintage - coming soon
    Musc Ravageur - coming soon

    What fragrance type or dominant scent am I missing? I am considering classics like Habit Rouge EDP, Eau Sauvage however open to other idea. I like Oud/Agarwood however not the pure oud oil types that our too oudy. I am not too fond of getting more gourmonds and I don't like leather scent. I am open to ideas however require that they have high sillage/projection and above average longitivity. Also considering the recent purchases i made, I won't consider purchase options that more expensive than $100.

    Advice?

    Perhaps Full Incense by Montale

    Story by Paul Smith - One is initially treated to a blast of a lemony and slightly peppery, citric accord. The herbal and faintly woody aspects of ivy leaf intrude upon and commingle with this sparkling citrus, providing a crisp, leafy opening, which saunters to the awaiting middle. Here, in the heart, a floral potion from the sweet jasmine and cardboard-like mustiness of rose leaf tempers the jarring opening, and transitions to the welcoming base. An altering melange of grass-like and clean vetiver, white musk, with its laundered-linen illusion, as well as a rugged, mineral amber coalesce. With an errant metallic and faintly minty something fluttering about, the dry woodiness of cedar squires the cleanly mix to a refreshing drydown. This light and fresh composition has good projection and longevity, and will bloom in the spring, summer and fall. A very nice fragrance which can be had rather inexpensively.

    Great suggestions Hedonist but I'm afraid that with a budget of $100 they'll probably give him just the cap of any of the fragrances you listed.

    Maybe a traditional vetiver? I would point to Givenchy or Grey vetiver.

    You could skip on Musc Ravageur and M7 to get Dior leather oud.

    I second the idea of vetivers for freshness.

    Also, I would explore the Caron masculine trio: Caron pour un homme (lavender vanilla, classic), Yatagan (vegetal woody), and Troisieme homme (fougere, slightly floral and barbershop).

    Maybe a good citrus like Concentree D'Orange Verte or a citrus aromatic like Lorenzo Villoresi Uomo

    Perhaps a woody incense frag like Gucci Pour Homme or it's tea-based brother Gucci Pour Homme II.

    I like the vetiver recommendations your getting too; Givenchy Vetyver's a good one.

    Gucci Pour Homme

    I also think an excellent vetiver might add another dimension to your wardrobe, like "Vetiver Guerlain". You want this and it has this:

    high sillage/projection and above average longitivity.

    A vetiver fragrance like Sycomore by Chanel or an incense fragrance like Full Incense by Montale are two excellent additions to anyone's wardrobe.
    My current top ten:
    1. Spice and Wood
    2. Tonka Imperiale
    3. Dior Homme
    4. Pure Malt
    5. Oud Wood
    6. Ambre Nuit
    7. L'air Du Desert Marocain
    8. Noir de Noir
    9. Apple Brandy
    10.Straight to Heaven
