    Default Last Try

    When I initially joined Basenotes I bought Serge Lutens MKK and Ambre 114 and
    thought I knew what scent I wanted to wear but as my search to find the ultimate scent continued I realised that my initial list of fragrances were wrong. The good news is I am now very settled on what fragrances I do want so I will be not be deviating again. The three fragrances that I want are:- (1) very fresh wet earthy soil (2) leather like new leather coats and (3) fresh tobacco from a newly bought tobacco pouch

    I bought Neil Morris Earthtones 1 Dark Earth which I think has the smell of very fresh wet earthy soil but it does not last long enough on me (I love sillage monsters)

    I also bought SMN patchouli which I think is the best patchouli I have ever smelt

    Problem being is that I want all three scents (very fresh wet earthy soil, leather like new leather coats and fresh tobacco from a newly bought tobacco pouch) in just one bottle. I want it to be very strong having amazing projection, sillage and longevity - I want others to be able to smell it from a distance. I also want to be able to apply it by spray because I like to apply it to my skin and my clothes and using a spray is the easiest way for me to do this

    As if this is not a hard enough challenge I wanted a special bottle for special nights out (the price ceiling preferably being no more than £100). I also wanted a cheaper bottle for everyday wear like a signature scent (the price ceiling preferably being no more than £50). There is obviously flexibility here. Whilst I am not opposed to shipping in fragrances I live in England and would ideally wish to avoid shipping and custom charges for my everyday scent

    I am always thrilled to get responses from the Basenotes community and I am always extremely appreciative to those who take the time to impart their knowledge on to me. I am obliged for any help that you may be able to offer me

    Hard to think about something highlighting the three together. But you could smell Knize Ten or Bandit, two mossy leathers, to see if they get close. +1 to the Montales as well, hard to beat their sillage.
