    Definitely Musc Ravageur, Tobacco Vanille- also suggest Invasion Barbare, Carnal Flower (and Jub XXV if you like heavy incense)

    I suggest andy tauer l'air du desert marocain for a fall/winter incense vibe.

    Creed Virgin Island Water/ Bond. No 9 coney island - for a fun summer/spring vibe

    Bond No.9 bleeker street is a nice/unique all around workhorse.

    Guerlain SDV - for an excellent gourmond vanilla vibe.

    Paco Rabane One million is an excellent going out scent if you can pull it off.

    Gucci PHII - is a tea vibe workhorse

    I would definitely suggest Tobacco Vanille.
    For Patchouli, Il Profumo Patchouli Noir and Nobile 1942 are worth a sample as are Tom Ford's Amber Absolute, Amouage's Memoir Man and Le Labo's Vetiver 46 for incence.
    Davidoff's vintage Zino is an amazing masculine 'power fragrance'.

    Try to get hold of some vintage Givenchy Gentleman or Monsieur, could also try Chanel PM and YSL Rive Gauche and Kouros.

    I agree with many of the suggestions above (some more than others). It looks like you may "need" a vetiver and an amber fragrance for your collection.

    I would recommed these to try:

    Vetiver: Frederic Malle Vetiver Extraordinaire, Chanel Sycomore, Guerlain Vetiver, Tom Ford Grey Vetiver

    Amber: Armani Prive Ambre Orient, Histoires de Parfums Ambre 114, Dolce & Gabanna The One, Andy Tauer L`Air du Desert Marocain.


    And maybe a leather fragrance...

    Creed Royal English Leather, Puredistance M, Parfum d'Empire Cuir Ottoman, ....
    Seasonal favorites:

    1. Creed - Pure White Cologne
    2. Creed - Aventus
    3. Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver
    4.
    by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
    5. Clive Christian - 1872
    6. Montale - Aoud Legacy
    7. Xerjoff - Nio
    8. Neela Vermeire - Bombay Bling
    9. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
    10. Chanel - Allure Homme Edition Blanche

    If you've got any interest in masculine "powerhouse" frags, look around at my wardrobe. Some good ones there.
    But looking at what you have, and what you want, I think our tastes might be kinda different.

    Would recommend:
    TdH Parfum, Tobacco Vanille, Gucci PHII, Rive Gauche PH, Ambre 114

    Nice wardrobe so far, and some really interesting samples on the way. You might like to try Creed Original Vetiver, and Timbuktu from L'Artisan. Congratz on your growing collection.

    Default Re: Suggestion for new additions to form a well rounded collection

    Aventus, GHII, MIP, Bulgari Black, GIT, MI, Encre Noir, DHI, Rochas Man, and quite a few others.

    Good choices.

    I see you're adding a leather. I like leathers a lot. Rather than Tuscan leather (which is quite good), I'd go for less expensive but more complex ones like Knize Ten or ELdO Rien, without forgetting the cheap but still great Estee Lauder Azuree.

    Thanks for the ideas, everyone - greatly appreciated

    Looks like i'll be paying another visit to the perfumed court for more samples...especially LIDGE (i've seen it referenced so many times)

    I like the idea of looking into an amber and vetiver - any thoughts on Les Nombres d`Or Vetyver by Mona di Orio? Fantastic reviews on this

    In regards to a leather, cacio, i'm all for cheaper options - i will look into these, thanks!
