    Default HIgh end/rare "masculine" scents besides TF PC, Dior PC, Creed?

    I have a couple expensive "masculine" smelling frags (TF Tuscan Leather, Creed Royal Water, Dior Leather Oud) that I've been wearing more and more over time, not only are they different from a lot of the fairly unisex men's frags out there but they really seem to last all day which to makes them worth the extra money over something I put on in the morning and have to reapply at lunch!

    Are there any other high end lines of men's frags besides TF PC, Dior PC and Creed that I should take a look at? Especially ones with somewhat masculine scents? Advice appreciated, thanks!

    Far too many to mention. Maybe a good place to start is EdP Frédéric Malle.
    Current Top Favorites:
    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)

    There are a lot. I encourage you to have an open mind and to not throw around words like "high-end", because frankly you'll miss out on a lot of great fragrances. Sorry if this sounds preachy.

    I would say the first place for you to start is with Knize Ten. IMO no collection could ever be complete without a bottle. After Knize, you could go in almost any direction:

    M7
    Rive Gauche
    GIT
    Heritage
    Zino
    Bel Ami
    Grey Flannel
    Fahrenheit
    Caron Pour un Homme
    Yatagan

    You could look at houses like Xerjoff and Clive Christian for the so-called "high ends".

    Great recos, I decided to start with Frederic Malle Bois d'Orage which has a wicked green opening and settles down nicely afterward. As a bonus my wife loves it, thinks it smells masculine but not offensively so, and yet isn't so feminine that she wants to borrow it for herself, basically the perfect sweet spot.

    Looking forward to trying others!

    The Perfums de Marly look like they're right up my alley - high quality, hard to find, and very masculine. I'm having trouble finding a place to get samples in North America, does anyone have any recommendations?
