To the OP, I love New Harlem. Still there are many scents that are just as good. Though I guess it is all down to the individual. The smell of New Harlem alone isn't something I rate that highly. It's great but not beyond some valid criticism, as it smells a little synthetic. The major projection and longevity win it huge points though: there are few scents that perform as well keeping you smelling good and projecting noticably all through a long night out.
Nowhere near as pricey, but just as good - for me, given my vanilla fetish - is Molinard's Vanille (not the newer, orientalist reformulation) which is - admittedly - crazy-niche as it's straight vanilla and nothing else (save a little heliotrope in the base) but for me that's bliss. The older one smells more natural and the boozy edge it has at first fades quickly, while the newer one retains it (boozy vanillas aren't my preference) and it has monster sillage and longevity. Cheap bottle unfortunately, but a good price even though it's discontinued.
Chocolate Greedy is another I enjoy which also packs some major longevity and sillage.
This is such a subjective thing. Saying "better" implies that there is indeed something better, or that to you, NH is the best. I own it and love it, but it's not terribly versatile. I'd say TV is better.
