I could either get two fragrance from the list
La Nuit Yves
or just one from the list
Bond.No 9 Riverside Drive/New Harlem
Serge Lutens Chergui
Creed Tablarome (?)
What do you people suggest. I would love to have multiple fragrance but at the same time i wanted something niche so there goes the confusion.
Terre d'Hermes would top my list of all those you have listed, but the other two on your first list I was not really a fan of (L'Instant is the better of the other two though, IMO).
If you choose the bottom list scenario, then Chergui is an excellent choice, IMO.
Current Top Favorites:
1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
4) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz) - tie
4) Lalfeorosa (O'driů) - tie
6) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio)
7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)
9) Javanese Patchouli (Zegna) - tie
9) Monsieur de Givenchy vintage (Givenchy) - tie
9) Coeur de Vetiver Sacré (L'Artisan) - tie
9) X for Men (Clive Christian) - tie
9) Patou pour Homme Privé (Jean Patou) - tie
9) Oud Shamash (The Different Company) - tie
I either love or like pretty much all of those, but if I had to choose 2, it would be the L'instant & the Terre d'Hermes.
new haarlem > lidg + la nuit + terre d hermes
i wouldn't bother with riverside though
The only one I really like from your top list is Terre d'Hermes. I would probably say get the Parfum version of that.
From your "niche" list, I really like Chergui and New Haarlem. Both great choices.
1. Creed - Spice & Wood
2. Creed - Aventus
3. Ormonde Jayne - Black Gold
4. by Kilian - Incense Oud
5. Puredistance - Black
6. House of Matriarch - Blackbird
7. Armani Privé - Oud Royal
8. by Kilian - Cruel Intentions
9. Creed - Royal English Leather
10. Brückner - Aoud 1

"When you're all alone, when no one is watching, and there's no one around to impress, that is who you are" - Greg Laurie
Terre d'hermes and La Nuit. That way you have a dry one and a sweet one.

From the top list, LIDGE and TDH.
From the bottom list, New Haarlem. I hear Chergui is really nice as well.
Out of the ones mentioned, Chergui.
My current top ten:
1. Spice and Wood
2. Tonka Imperiale
4. Pure Malt
5. Bois d'Argent
6. Noir de Noir
7. L'air Du Desert Marocain
8. Tobacco Vanille
9. Epic Man
10.Straight to Heaven
New Harlem or Terre D'hermes and La Nuit
I'm not OLD...I'm VINTAGE!
Chergui for sure
My current obsessions for now
Oud Wood , Noir de Noir , DHI , Mugler Cologne , Bond No.9 Bleeker St. ,
Ramone Monegal Agar Musk & Umbra , Chanel Coromondel ,
Much more fun with several ones so....
Then definetely get the Hermes one + whichever of the other ones (I'm not familiar with)
TdH and L'instant de Guerlain.
I'd go with TDH and L'instant de Guerlain.
The sense of smell, like a faithful counsellor, foretells its character.
Cherugi beats out the 3 on the first list, haven't tried the others on the second list
If it's me, I'd go with the Td'H and then try and get in on a split of B9NH.
I'm a big New Haarlem fan, so that would be my choice.
