    Default What fragrance gives you a fully satisfying experience?

    I love fragrances and love to wear them, but there are few that leaves me completely satisfied.
    This means they are addictive, You feel like smelling your wrist every few minutes, they last , and get you noticed by others in a positive way. I am going to start naming few from my collection. I will not include ones that I just sampled. This means I am including ones that I wore several times.
    My list without order:
    Frederic Malle : Portrait of a Lady
    Serge Lutens: Chergui
    By killian: Pure Oud
    Amouage Dia
    Bond 9: New York oud
    Chanel: Coromandel

    I know I I am going to be killed for not including any Guerlain. My favorite is Derby , but I only owned a sample

    I think Rive Gauche is making its way on this list, only have three wearings since acquiring a bottle a couple weeks ago but is always puts me in a pleasant mood.

    Irrespective if it's mass-market, designer or niche, male, unisex etc., as long as it has some or, even better, most of the notes I like AND at the same time good to outstanding longevity with decent and perceptible, yet not overpowering or brutally overwhelming projection, addiction potential is quite high.

    Main themes most likely to get me addicted: citrus (EDC style or otherwise), anything Mediterranean in general (citrus based or otherwise), powerhouse, leather, anything containing exotic woods- mainly cedar, mellow and spicy tobacco, any spices and herbs in general (with few exceptions like cumin or too strong cinnamon), barbershop style and fougere notes, moderate (not too sweet nor too synthetic or garishly overstated) male and unisex florals and gourmands.

    Gucci Envy For Men and Givenchy Xeryus Rouge - always.

    Right now and for the past month it is Puredistance M - This is the most satisfying fragrance I have yet tried - It's leathery, powdery, spicy and all in complete harmony. I'm ignoring even my wonderful Habit Rouge EDP.

    Creed Aventus.

    The smoke always subsides in the evening and reveals such a mouthwatering pineapple note. It smells so natural and fresh.
