    I really like the ones you picked up! Great start.

    You said you like Avignon, and wanted other "spooky" suggestions -

    This is it. Also covers "oud", but really well done.


    I would also suggest some other Bond No. 9 sampling:
    Bleecker Street
    New Haarlem
    Chez Bond

    may be up your alley.


    Just keep your eyes on Basenotes, and when you read something that makes you intrigued, try to get your hands on a sample.
    Congrats on your new fragrances - and enjoy!

    Sova is "gray mediocrity"? Please elaborate on how you came to this conclusion.

    Sell the Creeds and get some old school classics. Paco Rabanne XS would do as well as Himalaya for about a fifth of the price, and you also get monsieur De Givenchy and Givenchy Gentleman vintage, Chanel Egoiste, some vintage YSL scents, a couple of classic Guerlains, say Heritage and another one, plus maybe Dior Homme.
    Oh, and Rive Gauche for sure.

    Looks like a nice selection of fragrances. Some good ones to sample would be M7, Rive Gauche, Egoiste, Gucci Pour Homme I and II, Dior Homme, and Fahrenheit just to name a few.

    What hednic said. You could use some lovely wood in your lineup. Other than that. Lots of really good frags in your newly founded wardrobe.

    In what situation would you wear it?

    Personally, at any time. I don't really wear fragrances based on the situation. More or less, I choose what to wear on a certain day based on emotion and occasionally weather. I do find myself wearing wood based fragrances year-round. More so in the spring and fall months. I'll wear them to the office or out on a date. I wore CDG Wonderwood yesterday (65 degrees and sunny) to a friend's while we watched a sporting event.

    I'm doing part time college studies and paying for it myself.. That should explain it a bit lol..

    Plus, I'm saving up for a pair of custom earphones so the fragrance collection is gonna have to be on hold!
