Thread: Your favourite oriental
What is your favourite masculine oriental?
Opium, Opium Eau d'Orient, Ambre Sultan
These all get 5/5 stars in my book:
Égoïste Cologne Concentrée
Opium pour Homme Eau de Parfum
I like a bunch:
Ambre Sultan (though this is not a masculine)
+1 Opium PH EdP
- - - - - - - - - - - - -
Vintage Tabu packs a punch. In modern ones, I'd single out Ormonde Jayne Tolu, warm animalic vanillic oriental.
Absolue Poir le Soir
Noir de Noir
And many others... Too many to mention. My collection is extremely imbalanced, and consists of mostly orientals, so I'm slightly biased.

Among my favorites are Genghis Khan ( thanks to Yuyu15) and Ungaro II. The reason I mention them not because they are my top choices but because they share a somewhat similar vibe ( top and middle notes) at least to my untrained nose. I wonder whether because of the bergamot and ginger components or maybe something else? However the drydown is quite different as Genghis Khan's is much warmer and spicier than Ungaro 2's and probably due to the fact that Ungaro 2 does not last long on my skin at all.
Opium Pour Homme Edp
L'Air du désert Marocain
Current TOP 5 from my collection:
1. Gucci Pour Homme II
2. Chanel Coromandel
3. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme
4. Encre Noire

14 sprays of DRAKKAR NOIR should do it
