    Default Honey

    I'm looking for a dark, sweet and boozy honey based fragrance. Preferably niche!

    Don't suggest Back2Black, TV or Pure Havane, I've tried all of them and love them.

    Thanks

    Fumerie Turque has a lovely honey-ed quality to it. Not boozy, though.

    Vintage Schiaparelli Shocking is a wonderful animalic honey. But it costs a lot, when found at all.

    Lutens Miel de bois has tons of honey - but dark it is not.

    Which one? From what I understand there's 3 different Fumerie Turque.
    Thanks

    Chergui or Ambre Narguile. I lean more towards Ambre Narguile coz Chergui is too powdery.

    A cheap alternative for Ambre Narguile is Dolcelisir by L'Erbolario. They smell way too close

    Can't seem to find a sample of Dolcelisir, or a bottle for that matter.

    If you love AN then you will love this. Search youtube for the review. I got it for my wife and I compared it to my bottle of AN and SMH. I could have saved some dough

    From your examples above, I'd almost pin you for a sweet vanilla/tobacco type as well? Sort of a honey-like thing. If so...

    l'occitane - eau des baux - compares favorably to TF-TV; almost like a tropical mix with some gingerbread and sweet sides.
    slumberhouse - baque - A light/dry tobacco with some honey in there as well; very powerful.
    slumberhouse - sova - woodiness with vanilla and honey; basically it smells like autumn in a yummy way.
    parfumerie generale - bois blond - Another light hay/tobacco/honey scent, a bit smokey.
    dawn spencer hurwitz - mahjoun - Gingerbread-like with honey

    And a +1 to hermes - ambre narguile

    +1 for Chergui, but also Cuir de Russie by Piver.

    It has "miel" (honey) with leather.

    I also get a honey note - oddly - from Trumper Spanish Leather, anyway, while it is slightly, dark, sweet and boozy, it has a sort of leathery soapiness too, all this with a certain warmth reminding both of honey and of luxury edition, rare leather-bound books.

    not niche, but smell like it:

    Bogart Furyo - animalic honey+incense
    Balenciaga pH - less sweet, very animalic honey, patchouli, slightly red fruity
