    Default Help me choose my next purchase?

    I don't want to go over about $120. Here's the list I've narrowed it down to:

    Habit Rouge
    CK One Shock for Him
    Comme des Garcons 2 Man
    Santal Noble
    Mitsouko
    maybe Coromandel

    .....obviously I like sweetness balanced by woods and spices, but I'm open to other suggestions too.

    Other possibilities, these would be blind-buys (since they're on the cheaper side, I'm willing to take a chance based on what I've read):

    Xeryus Rouge
    L'eau Au Masculin (Lolita Lempicka)
    Carlos Santana for Men

    Dream list, if there wasn't a spending limit:
    La Myrrhe
    Ormonde Woman
    Sarrasins

    I've always found useful suggestions here, thanks for reading my topic! : )

    Easy, Comme des Garcons 2 Man. L'Occitane Eau de Baux is a great woody/spicy fragrance as well.

    Coromandel is wonderful but I doubt if you can get it for 120...

    Very easy. You have only one possible choice, and that choice is HABIT ROUGE.


    Habit Rouge is essential in any serious collection. It is a masterpiece. A delicious and unforgettable fragrance.

    This is what I was thinking - in that order.

    $130 is acceptable....I am getting a pretty nice tax return so I am going to splurge a bit. Another option is to get 2 or 3 of the cheaper ones.

    I love Coromandel but I probably wouldn't wear it as often as the others. I get just a little self-conscious because in my opinion it leans towards feminine. Not that it stops me from wearing it. : )

    All excellent. Hard to choose, my vote perhaps to CDG2 man, which is quite versatile and can be worn without problems also in the summer. I vastly prefer your regular list to your blind buy one.

    The dream list is wonderful, too. But at $300 for the Lutens here in the States (and with shipping fees skyrocketed on the already expensive OJ) - certainly not cheap.
