    Default My 200th fragrance

    Hi, all. I just noticed I have tried 199 fragrances since keeping track on Basenotes. I thought It would be fun to have you all decide what my 200th fragrance should be. take a look at my wardrobe, and see what I have tried. Give me a suggestion based on my ratings.

    Thanks...Of course you can rearrange them by house or name or whatever...I have them decending by rating.

    Wow. Very diverse wardrobe you got there, brotato. Some pricey ones too.
    For under $30, may I recommend the clean, powerful, and very masculine VanCleef & Arpels PH? An exeptionally nice powerhouse frag.
    Or for slightly more money, something equally clean-smelling with a bit of sweetness, Prada Amber PH.

    You don't have to spend big money to smell fabulous!

    You've tried a lot of vetivers but don't seem to like them, try Malle's Bois d'Orage (French Lover), it's the best green scent I've ever smelled including my beloved vintage Polo.

    Perhaps a classic like Derby or Coriolan from Guerlain.
    On the flip side, a sample of Omniscent from Yosh or Ambr'ero from Cerchi Nell'acqua
    It was a calculated risk. Unfortunately, I'm bad at math.

    With my track record with Creed, probably not. I surprise myself that I own full bottles of GIT and Aventus as I am infamous around here for "Creed Bashing"

    Looked over Prada Pour Homme, it looks promising. I love a good leather fragrance.

    A few suggestions based on your "tried" list: Angel, Mitsouko, Jicky, L'Air du Desert Marocain, Derby, Cuir de Russie, Beyond Paradise, Breath of God, Dzing!, Joy.

    To me, Derby smells a bit like Bandit, so if you like the latter, check out the former.

    Just checked your wardrobe and saw a few amber based, so histories ambre 114 or serge lutens ambre sultan might be a choice, if u liked mona di orio try the Oud and Cuir, both are fabulous, on patchouli try for him narciso rodriguez...

    I too am inclined to suggest another amber. Hermes Ambre Narguile.

    You have not yet tried my favorite, Bandit (treeman mentions it too, but I don't see it in your tried list). Derby would work as well too (not that they are too similar, they are both leathers, but one is more butch).

    Allow me to introduce to you one of Guerlain's legends, Mitsouko.

    Or perhaps Histoires de Parfums Ambre 114 since you seem to enjoy ambers.

    From your top 5 and also the 199 frags that you've tried.

    the following would be great acquisition for your collection

    1. Montale Dark Aoud - MdO Oud, RM Agar Musk
    2. Mona d'Orio Vetyver - Chanel Sycomore
    3. Bond no. 9 NY Amber - HdP Amber 114

    Congrats!

    Here are my suggestions, in no particular order:

    Amouage Jubilation XXV
    Frederic Malle Musc Ravageur
    Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille
    Tom Ford Tuscan Leather
    Tom Ford Amber Absolute
    - this one is discontinued, but a great amber fragrance IMO.
    Tom Ford Oud Wood
    Tom Ford Italian Cypress
    L'Instant de Guerlain Extreme
    MDCI Invasion Barbare
    Kilian Back to Black
    Kilian A Taste of Heaven
    Kilian Rose Oud
    Bond No. 9 New Haarlem

    As you earlier mentioned, you're probably not a fan of Creed, but I figure I recommend these anyway:

    Silver Mountain Water - one of my favorite fragrances of all time. Love the tea note in this.
    Himalaya
    Original Vetiver
    Bois du Portugal
    Selection Verte
    - a great natural smelling mint fragrance.

    possum, based on your liking of Priment Brulant and ambers, I would recommend Arquiste Anima Dulcis. It is not an amber, but a dry vanilla with cinnamon and chili! I would even supply the sample Go for it!
