    It's been so long since I tried any of these. I recall liking Ambra and Muschio. I don;t recall tuberose, sorry.

    Ginestra (Broom) is my favorite. Green without being screechy.

    In addition to what already mentioned, the colonia russa is also pleasant. I also like Acqua di cuba, a very sweet tobacco, but it's different than the ones you mention. The tuberose didn't really register with me, I don't even remember anything particular about when I smelled it.

    Fieno is a very nice hay note with a light floral touch, more 'natural' and not as sweet as Goutal's Duel.

    Citta di Kyoto. Some perfumers use a methodological or scientific manner to create a perfume. Citta di Kyoto is renaissance humanism reflection of iris and hyacinth.

    Ottone, the only (partial) alternative to Cuiron.

    I have Peau d'Espagne in extract, amazing medical like leather.
    Garofano the carnation, has unbelievable sillage and longevity. Very spicy clove like.

    I wish they still did the Heliotrope as I adore that note and think their version would have been amazing.

    Oh, their soaps and face creams are brilliant as well.

    tabacco toscano. their best offering, imo. a discreet, close to skin, elegant vanilla and amber tobacco scent without being sweet, masterpiece.

    Wow I'm impressed!
    Pd'E is amazing in both EDP and extract. I recently smelled it at scent's place.
    Makes me almost want to stop using the EDP and only get the extract.

    Thumbs up Re: Santa Maria Novella

    I love VETIVER and PATCHOULI
    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    I second this. Most certainly my favorite tobacco scent.

    Fieno, Muschio and Peau d'Espagne are my favorites. However, if you prefer softer florals, Angels of Florence might be a good option

    Muschio Oro is a beautiful soapy musk with warmth. Very soft and nice. I love it!
