    Default Which niche scents should I sample next?

    Since I started getting into fragrances, I've tried a bunch of designer stuff, now I'm trying to test more niche.

    Some of my favorite designer scents:
    L'instant Extreme
    Prada Amber
    M7
    Gucci ph I
    Chanel PE

    Of the niche I've tried, I did not care much for several Serge Lutens (Chergui, Gris Clair, Jeux de Peau) or By Kilians (Straight to heaven, Cruel Intentions)

    I did really like Jubilation XXV, Aventus, Musc Ravageur, Duel Annick Goutal, Tonka Imperiale, Tuscan Leather.

    Can anyone recommend some other scents that I may like?

    Sounds Like L'air du desert marocain by Andy Tauer might be something you would like. Also R'oud Elements by Kerosene.

    You should try Comme des Garcons! Technically not niche, but they offer a wide range of amazing, unique, quirky and absolutely wonderful fragrances Most if it is quite affordable as well, which for most people is a huge plus!

    Slumberhouse -- All
    CdG -- 2Man, Avignon
    PG -- L'Ombre Fauve
    TF -- Amber Absolute
    MFK -- Absolue pour le Soir
    ALoF -- Liquidnight, What We Do in Paris is Secret
    Nasamatto -- Hindu Grass, Duro
    Amouage -- Interlude Man
    Puredistance -- M

    And before you write off Kilian (although I'm kind of with you), do check out A Taste of Heaven. I find it to be the most unique and captivating of that line. It's a lavender/absinthe thing but has a lovely mineral residue that kicks in around the 2hr point.

    If you like m7 and jub then you might enjoy resinous, oud and dark perfume. Montale dark oud, musc oud. Geurlain songe bois dete and epic come to mind. Interlude is between resinous and incense so it depends how dark you want to go.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys. From looking at the notes, LDDM, Dia, Avignon, Pear & Olive look particularly interesting
