    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 (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driů) - tie

    6) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)

    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.
    Seasonal favorites:

    1. Creed - Spice & Wood
    2. Creed - Aventus
    3. Brückner - Aoud 1
    4. Armani Privé - Oud Royal
    5. by Kilian - Incense Oud
    6. Dior - Vetiver
    7. Les Nez - Turtle Vetiver Back
    8. Neela Vermeire - Trayee
    9. Amouage - Jubilation XXV
    10. Creed - Royal English Leather

    Same here.

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


    Good luck!

    From the top list, LIDGE and TDH.

    From the bottom list, New Haarlem. I hear Chergui is really nice as well.

    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.
