    Default So I bought the 10oz bottles of Mugler Cologne and Gendarme....What next?

    I bought the two above to form my "clean as hell" arsenal of scent. FWIW, those relying on samples or decants of those arent getting the full power, unless they are hitting 5 or 6 squirts. Gendarme, for example, lays fairly close to the skin but i still smell it 8 hours later from 2 or 3 sprays.

    I am still taking suggestions on clean scents.

    However, the reason I have troubled the Basenotes board today is because I am looking to get dirty. Yes, after obtaining a few years of clean scent, I now want dirty. By dirty, i mean dirt or earth etc i do not mean butt lmao.

    I own a bottle of Encre Noir (cannot find Sycomore anywhere remotely local), and i have deeply decanted Terre de Hermes. I prefer TdH of the two, but i found a great deal on EN.

    So, what others would you say smell dirty?

    Haha, this cracked me up...& yes, you should be set for quite a while on the "clean" side. Gendarme lasts For-ev-er on my skin as well. Hmmm, not sure I can help much on the "dirty" side, as I tend to prefer cleaner types myself. The closest I probably get is TdH Parfum, which I still don't really find "dirty."

    Prada Infusion d'Homme, can't go wrong with that.
    I'd suggest as well some neroli centered colognes: De Nicolai Sologne is truly lovely and fairly priced, Villoresi Colonia is wonderful but quite pricey, and if you are willing to dare into the women's territory, Versense Versace is a good option too.

    A fantastic dirty earthy scent that I love is Miller-Harris Vetiver Bourbon. A raw earthy vetiver edp that has nice longevity and silage. Absolutely worth the price

    You want dirty? Just go to Musc Kublai Khan. Dirty, dirty, dirty.

    You could really freak out coworkers by alternating between Gendarme and MKK.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    In the heart of Coromandel by Chanel, the musty earthiness of patchouli takes on a clay-like facet.
