    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

    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.

    Oud- Montale Black Aoud (floral -rose, too)
    Gourmand Herbal- Montale - Patchouli Leaves
    Gourmand- Parfumerie Generale- Aomasaii
    Woods- Fendi (look for an old one on Ebay or TJMax )
    Floral- Old Spice (drug store, amazing for $8!)
    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.
