Original Vetiver by Creed
Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

Bond no.9 - Harrods Oud Patchouli (via sample)
I took a bit of risk wearing this as its a very hot day but its an excellent quality scent and not cloying at all, Its in a different league to their regular EDP line.
Sisley Eau d'Ikar
The fragrance is great but this ad borders the ridiculous.
