    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?

    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. Epic Man
    3. Tonka Imperiale
    4. Noir de Noir
    5. Bois d'Argent
    6. Musc Ravageur
    7. Apple Brandy
    8. Dior Homme Intense
    9. Aoud 1
    10.Tobacco Vanille
