    Default MEN'S Fragrance with a lot of CARDAMOM (Suggestions)

    Dear Friends,
    I've gotten into obsession with cardamom of late - but i realize many perfumes that include this - usually never
    center their fragrance around this or it is usually killed with the pairing of cloves with it.
    I am after something which has lots of clean cardamom in it.

    Please recommend, if you know of any.
    I'd usually prefer a non rose combination.

    In case you still have any doubts, Cartier's Declaration, but there is also plenty of cumin and a note which some refer to as body odour, though that is not my opinion

    Chanel Pour Monsieur Concentree has a big cardamom note, in as flawless a setting as you're likely to find

    YSL La Nuit de L'Homme is my major recommendation. One of the best 21st century scents in my opinion, very sexy and quite potent.

    +1 Dyptyque 34 Boulevard St Germain. Plenty of Cardamom with no paired cloves, one of my favorite scents. Very versatile fragrance as well.

    Isfarkand, and, less expensively, Kenzo Jungle pour Homme.

    Smelling Ormonde Man from the sprayer can smell like my nose is in a container of pure ground cardamom.

    Agree. A much overlooked fragrance...

    I forgot - Dolce & Gabbana The One Sport. I find this to be a very nice fresh clean scent... but very soft spoken with below average longevity.

    1. Xerjoff - Nio

    I also think Angeliques sous la Pluie and Bigarade Concentree have great cumin/cardamom notes

    Here´s a sleeping beauty, discontinued, (but the good news is it´s sill relatively easy to find online and cheap) :
    It´s called Fishbone Man, strange name I know - but it was the name of a german firm who produced jeans and beachwear....hence the name. It was formerly launched under the name Marrakech Tales from the firm Mäurer+ Wirtz. Both juices are exactly the same - despite different names and different release dates. It is based around cardammom, grapefruit and orange. I have had more compliments wearing this than any other fragrance !!. It´s not a heavy fragrance and suitable for daytime wear.
    Ignore the olfactory pyramid notes listed on the basenotes fragrance directory, they are totally wrong.
    RARE PERFUME DECANTS - FACEBOOK (closed group) - Hundreds of ultra rare extraits available, including Djedi and Nombre Noir.
