    Default help needed in choosing my birthday present!

    Hi everyone,
    I need a few advices on choosing a fragrance as my birthday present, I'm interested in the following frags:

    "Lonestar Memories" by Tauer (love its complexity and the geranium-smoke-leather vibe)
    "Reverie au jardin" by Tauer (for the great unusual lavender and bitter florals)
    "Peau d'Espagne" by SMN (oldish vibe which I find always beguiling)
    "Cinabre" by Maria Candida Gentile (this one for its alchemic connotations...)
    "Manoumalia" by Les Nez (because of the opulence of the florals and a "peanut note" wich I seem to detect...maybe I'm wrong, sorry)

    other advices are most welcome!

    Get:

    Lonestar Memories by Tauer - Upon application, one is barraged with a dry and raw leather as well as smoke wafting from a campfire. Outlying creosote imparts its smoked-meat dimension. Woody and earthy, carrot seed accompanied by minty, clary sage maneuver to the fore and impart their sweetness. This smoldering opening persists for a spell before rambling to the awaiting middle. Here, in the heart, dry cedarwood oozes its petrol dimension while a tinge of disinfectant from the birchtar of the volcanic opening presents. A pine-like, terpenic cistus awakens and infuses the mishmash with its warm, leathery scent tinged with lively pepper and heavy tar. A ravishing jasmine tempers the tumultuous melange with its sweet, floral highlight, and steers the esoteric blend to the waiting base. Captivating sandlewood with its singular, bright and fresh woodiness, mysterious myrrh with its burning rubber, soft tonka bean with its vanillic, pipe tobacco, and earthy vetiver with its dank grass and dirt, all commingle and yield an alluring, if not beguiling, mixture, which is carried to the mollified drydown. This evocative, one-of-a-kind composition has good projection and very good longevity.

    Yes, I tried it and it was impressive! Huge longevity and staying power, and smells simply beautiful...I don't see myself wearing it, but it's a great fragrance all the same! (I almost love every Tauer creation, I'll surely get Reverie au jardin, sooner or later).
