    Default Must Haves- FB Niche...

    I have just been getting into the niche world deeply and have not found a ton of FB worthy scents..
    Based on longevity and projection-these are my biggest Likes..
    Price is important as well..
    anyway-I have enough amber based scents..
    What are some of your must haves in these genres

    Oud
    Cedar
    Wood
    Incense
    Tobacco
    Floral
    Gourmand
    No CDG as I have explored them enough
    No by Kilian as they seem to not project well on me besides B2B

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals don't warrant or deserve other individuals' acknowledgement or respect.

    Serge Lutens- Bois Orientale is the best cedar I've had but it only comes in the bell jar - expensive.
    Mazzolari makes some gorgeous stuff, too. Also pricey.
