    Default Some advice please...

    Dear BN-friends,

    These are the latest I purhased:
    - Guerlain Habit Rouge EDP.
    - Terre d'Hermes EDP.
    - Prada Amber PH EDT.
    And I've joined the TV-split on the board!

    I'm very very very happy with those!

    I guess my taste goes more to classy scents wearable for work IMO.

    I've narrowed down my wish list to the folowing now:
    - Idole de Lubin.
    - L'Air Du Desert Marocain by Tauer.
    (In my initial searh for spicy!!)
    - Bond no 9 New Harlem
    - By Kilian Back To Black
    (In my initial searh for sweet!!)
    And
    - By Kilian Straight To Heaven.
    - Amouage Epic Men
    ...

    Wich is the best spicy or sweet? Wich classy smooth scents can you recomend?

    Thank you for all the replies and advice!!!!

    Of the ones you list I would go with Idole de Lubin as it is spicy and a bit sweet (it also smells amazing). Another spicy scent to look into if you enjoy fiery spice over sandalwood is Padparadscha by Satellite.

    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)

    I have to agree Idole-Lubin is fantastic in either EDT/EDP formulations.

    I like all of the scents on your list. I own Idole and L'Air Du Desert Marocain, I like both, but definitely prefer L'Air Du Desert Marocain.

    Nice choices. I prefer the first three over the latter three.
