    Byredo M/Mink

    Also, the base of Dior Leather Oud is a naughty honey/civet combination, but I wouldn't say the fragrance is about honey overall.

    I personally find TF Tobacco Vanille has a marked caramelised honey note?

    Pure Powdered Honey. The most honey dominated fragrance I have ever smelt.

    Serge Lutens Fumerie Turque -- very prominent honey note + spices + smoke
    Frapin 1270 -- boozy honey (I personally think the honey note in this one is stronger than in Back to Black; these two fragrances do have some similarities, but 1270 is available at a fraction of the price)
    Parfumerie Generale Indochine -- spicy honey (kind of like the stewed spices in SL Arabie but less curry/cumin and more honey)
    Mazzolari Patchouli -- honey isn't dominant but it's there and lovely with the patchouli
    Parfumerie Generale Intrigant Patchouli -- also isn't dominant but sweetens an otherwise powdery patchouli

    Santa Maria Novella Acqua di Cuba is a honeyed tobacco. And vintage Shocking by Schiaparelli has an animalic honey base.

    I get a strong honey note in Slumberhouse's Rume - well, sometimes I do, sometimes I don't, but when I do it's great.

    In fact, I bought Rume based on the honey note as when I do smell it it drives me a little crazy. The cola / Dr. Pepper and spices are pretty nice as well.

    This, this, this. Heavy on the honey...and it's awesome. I also get more of a honey vibe from Tobacco Vanille than I do a vanilla vibe.

    As others have mentioned, Kilian Back to Black has a prominent honey note. It also has a tobacco note.

    SL Chene also has a nice beeswax/honey note, as does Chanel's Antaeus. In the latter it's peeking out from a very austere, gentleman's composition. Just beautiful, imo.

    Definitely Back to Black. It has the most stunning honey note in my opinion.

    I also agree with Chene by Lutens. That's more on the line of beeswax, but still nice as a contrast to all those woods.

    +1 on Santa Maria Novella Acqua di Cuba is a rich honeyed tobacco, it is EDC, but it has EDT to EDP longevity.

    +1 on Hermessence Ambre Narguile reminds me of Honeyed Apple Pie

    +1 on Tenere, I can detect lovely subtle honey note.

    Good list here, DuNez!

    However, I would like to add Giorgio for Men, Vintage Kouros (where it is more noticeable), Vintage Givenchy Gentleman and Chergui Serge Lutens and make a key point that Balenciaga Pour Homme does not actually have honey as a note. Neither does Balenciaga Ho Hang Club, EarNoseThroat. I am going to write a forum thread (which I have already in draft) about the "honeyed" accord of Vintage Balenciaga scents. I hold these bottles in the highest regard and consider Balenciaga a magnificent house in their glory days (which have past). It is actually the depth of the key resin found in those compositions, Styrax, combined with other ingredients (including other resins and rich, deep floral notes). Caramel is an actual note in Balenciaga Pour Homme, by the way - so there is some sweetness.

    Interesting thread. And, for the record, Vintage Paco Rabanne Pour Homme does not have honey as a note either. It has a 'honeyed tobacco' note, which blends incredibly well with the rich resins (cistus and lentisk) as well as amber, oakmoss, and tonka bean (coumarin). But, no actual honey. A significant difference and someone with even an average nose can discern the two notes clearly as different.

    Cheers.

    Boss Number One really highlights the honey, without too much of anything else being a distraction. Just Me by Montana is marketed to women but is basically a unisex gourmand with a clear honey note, though I wouldn't call it the star of the show.

    Too many to list, but among my favorites:

    Lapidus pour Homme
    Giorgio of BH for men
    Bijan Bijan
    Nicole Miller for men
    Spark J Claiborne (This one is dirt cheap)

    Most Serge Lutens have honey
