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. Dior - Vetiver
4. by Kilian - Incense Oud
5. Puredistance - Black
6. by Kilian - Cruel Intentions
7. Armani Privé - Oud Royal
8. Brückner - Aoud 1
9. Creed - Royal English Leather
10. House of Matriarch - Blackbird
"We don't fail because we aim too high and miss, but because we aim too low and hit" - Les Brown
"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. Dior Homme Parfum
3. Tonka Imperiale
4. Pure Malt
5. Bois d'Argent
6. Noir de Noir
7. Apple Brandy
8. 5 o'clock au Gingembre
9. Epic Man
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.
