    Default $100 for Thanks giving. Don't know what to choose

    I could either get two fragrance from the list

    L'instant Guerlain
    Terre D'hermes
    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'driù) - 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) Polo vintage (Ralph Lauren) - 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.

    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.
    Current Fall Favorites:

    1. Creed - Spice & Wood
    2. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
    3. Brückner - Aoud 1
    4. Creed - Aventus
    5. Dior - Vetiver
    6. Armani Privè - Cedre Olympe
    7. Ermenegildo Zegna - Haitian Vetiver
    8. Ermenegildo Zegna - Javanese Patchouli
    9. AJ Arabia - I
    10. Les Nez - Turtle Vetiver Back

    Of your choices, I'd go here as well.

    Same here.

    If you decide to go niche, I'd suggest Chergui by Serge Lutens.


    Good luck!

    I'd go with TDH and L'instant de Guerlain.
    The sense of smell, like a faithful counsellor, foretells its character.

    If it's me, I'd go with the Td'H and then try and get in on a split of B9NH.
