    Default 10/22 is my B-day. I will be 44. I would like to buy myself a special fragrance. Can you help?

    Please take a look at my wardrobe. Bear in bind that I am 44 but very young in spirit and I'm always told that I appear to look as if I am in my mid-30s. I work in a New York City Court House, very busy, lots of people. I am legal professional employed by a law enforcement agency.
    Please help me buy my next birthday gift.

    I think it's about time you join the club and purchased L'Instant Extreme.

    Branch out a bit. How about LIDGE?
    1. Epic Man by Amouage (29 wears)
    2. Leather Oud by Christian Dior (27 wears)
    3. M7 by Yves Saint Laurent (22 wears)
    4. Oud Imperial (black) by Perris Monte Carlo (21 wears)
    5. Russian Tea Ritual by Masque (17 wears)
    6. Fate Man by Amouage (17 wears)

    Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

    Wow, same suggestion, one minute apart. I bet Jack Hunter and Akahina were posting at the same time but Jack was a little faster on that submit button.

    My suggestion would be the vintage Michael for Men by Michael Kors.

    If you need something you can wear to work and not offend people around you, but in the same time not being bored to death, may I recommend Pehnaglions Opus 1870? Transparent, sophisticated, and very very pleasant. And if not, then there is always Rose 31...

    Happy birthday in advance!

    Strictly within the realm of designer scents: your classiness - at least judging by your current wardrobe, seems to be perfectly accesorized by scents like Habit Rouge, Van Cleef&Arpels pour Homme, Rive Gauche pour Homme, Eau Sauvage parfum, TDH Parfum, even Caron pour un Homme.

    OK. How about a Fredric Malle fragrance. Perhaps Musc Ravageur?

    +1 for Frederic Malle. I suggest Musc Ravageur or French Lover / Bois d'Orage.

    Happy Birthday!
    Current Spring Favorites:
    1. Creed - Spice & Wood
    2. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
    3. Dior - Vetiver
    4. Clive Christian - 1872 for Men
    5. Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver
    6. Ermenegildo Zegna - Haitian Vetiver
    7. Les Nez - Turtle Vetiver Back
    8. Tom Ford - Rive d’Ambre
    9. Creed - Green Valley
    10. Parfumerie Generale - Grand Siecle Intense 7.1

    Since you are celebrating your birth day I think you should splurge on Amouage Jubilation XXV. Both are a celebration of being a powerful man.

    Such wonderful recommendations. My BaseNotes family is so great. I thank you all so much. I think I will splurge this year and purchase something really special.

    I'd go with something kinda elegant, but not too strong. How about something like Cereus no. 7? A good, versatile niche scent that's not overly pricey. Classy, but certainly not overpowering.

    Default Re: 10/22 is my B-day. I will be 44. I would like to buy myself a special fragrance. Can you help?

    Cereus No.7 is like mixing GIT, Fahrenheit, and adding Tonka bean. Great fragrance! Also since fall is coming up Nasomatto Black Afgano is an incredible fragrance. Just looking at your wardrobe you'd probably enjoy either one.
    Some day's you're the statue and some days you're the pigeon.

    Creed Bois du Portugal.

    Happy Birthday!

    EDIT: Oops. Just saw your wardrobe. Didn't realize you already have it.

    I agree with silentrich on Nasomatto Black Afgano, splurge and get this one.

    Birthdays are special..go all out..

    My recs...perhaps a Chanel(I haven't smelled all of them but please not Bleu De Chanel! LOL) Or a Frederick Malle..not Musc Rav though..just isn't masculine enough..at least for my tastes.

    Since it's fall..maybe Creed Spice and Wood? That's a nice one for fall and winter I think. The one ounce size is cheaper. Or there's Millesime Imperial.
