    Default Any Idea's

    This might be the most bizarre question, or perhaps not... but I was wondering, does anybody know of any fragrances (preferably a widely available one) that might match the following list of notes:

    Top notes of mandarin and rosemary with a heart of oriental cedar and a warm, woody amber base.

    Any help at all is greatly appreciated, cheers in advance!

    Thank you so much, I will try which ever of these I can, as soon as possible!

    To cut a long story short, there was a fragrance made a decade or so ago (possibly created by Faberge but never sold under the brand), that has been since discontinued, and though I have 2 bottles of it left, I have scoured the internet for more over the past few years, and perfume shops for smell-alikes and so far, found nothing.

    So my everlasting search continues.

    A little bit off track in that it doesn't account for your requested top notes, but Eau des Baux by L'Occitane (easy to find / sample) is a cypress/incense based scent that reads as a lovely warm, dry amber that's very easy to wear. Just throwing it out there...

    Welcome to Basenotes, MattFLC!

    You could try Lalique pour Homme (lion), especially the EDP.
    ointments and perfume delight the heart....

    Thanks guys, wasn't expecting such a good response so quick... Turns out it might not have been so bizarre a request after all That's two votes for Lalique then, I'm compiling these as a list, and will work my way through them as I can, price isn't important to me (if I could find a perfect smell-alike, price would become completely irrelevant lol), obviously the easier to find and thus sample is better, all these suggestions so far seem fairly available from a few searches around the net!
