    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.

    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?

    Looks like you are lacking in vetiver fragrances. Perhaps something like:

    F.M. - Vetiver Extraordinaire
    F.M. - Bois d'Orage
    by Kilian - Cruel Intentions
    Atelier - Vetiver Fatal

    Happy Birthday!
    Seasonal favorites:

    1. Creed - Spice & Wood
    2. Creed - Aventus
    3. Dior - Vetiver
    4.
    by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
    5. by Kilian - Cruel Intentions
    6. Puredistance - Black
    7. Tom Ford - Plum Japonais
    8. Neela Vermeire - Trayee
    9. Creed - Royal Oud
    10. Chanel - Egoiste

    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.

    Creed Bois du Portugal.

    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.

    Happy XLIV senore01, any of the below 2 will do but I have a feeling you prefer french school and a bit of sweetness in your fumes so perhaps XXV is better option.

    I see you have some Creeds. I would maybe go with another such as Silver Mountain Water, Royal Oud, Santal Imperial, Original Santal, Original Vetiver, Tabrone Millisime, etc

    I also see you do not have any Bond No 9. While I don't like Bond no 9 nearly as much as Creed, they have a bunch of fragrances and I like many of them. I would try Riverside, Wall Street, Brooklyn, New Haarlem, and maybe one of their Oud fragrances.

    Good call on Fiero. For a mature, confident man it fits like a glove.
