    Default Based on the stuff in my signature...

    What would you guys recommend next...

    I have a decant of Portrait of a Lady which is coming to an end and I really like it but I'm interested in other experiences. I guess a good floral is probably missing but I'm eager to see what you guys come up with!

    Cheers

    Lumiere Noire pour Homme by Maison Francis Kurkdjian - One is initially treated to a debonair rose; the mildly sweet fragrance of which is somewhat stunted by the infused anise and nuttiness from the accompanying cumin. This exotic opening flows effortlessly to the heart, where a warm and toothsome cinnamon as well as an earthy and slightly dark patchouli nicely dust the rose with their inviting accessions. Arriving at its waiting base, a bitter and faintly disinfecting artemsia showers the rose, and specks of agreeable narcissus flitter about as its meanders to its enjoyable drydown. A prized gem in one's repertoire, this gorgeous composition, with its fresh and spicy overtures and concomitant sensuousness, has average projection and very good longevity.

    Since you appear to be a Tom Waits fan, perhaps you would also enjoy the latest Leonard Cohen recording "Old Ideas".

    As far as fragrance recommendations, those listed by alfarom are spot on.

    Thanks for all the recommendations, much appreciated and yes Mr Dukecity, I'm a massive Tom Waits fan so I'll be checking out Mr Cohens latest - thanks for the heads up. I guess knowing the odd line from a not especially well known song means you like the travelogues of Tom Waits too...

    Check out Toledo - Fishnets & Cigarettes for your ears, Byredo Baudelaire for your nose.

    I've been digging Bad As Me lots. After listening to that and Glitter and Doom a bunch, Heart of Saturday Night sounds positively strange.

    Lumiere Noir it was in the end - god, it smells good. Really odd, it seems to fade and come back and waft around for a bit then disappear only to re-emerge later... Never owned a scent quite like it!

    Thanks for all the input!
