    Default Need some suggestions - AGAIN!

    I know some of you had made some suggestions on another thread for me but I can't seem to find it...but looking for a unique niche fragrance that smells fantastic and garners compliments....preferably for the upcoming Spring/Summer months...I like the suggestions to focus more around virtually unknown or unmentioned houses and scents...I like that!

    I had some peeps mentioned Nu_be but wasn't impressed....need it to be long lasting and amazing scent trail....

    I've mentioned a few examples like

    Costume National Homme
    Profumi di Pantelleria Marstrale
    Ulrich Anvers

    Not looking for OUDS or Creeds, Montales etc....

    Thanks for your thoughts!!!

    Try something in the Ramone Monegal brand.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    You could try the Eau d'Italie line. Paestum Rose is my favourite from them. Parfumerie Generale and Nasomatto also have many unique/unusual fragrances in my opinion. My personal favourite for spring/summer is 1861 by Xerjoff.

    for your weather - go back to basics / classics - hadrien absolu / monsieur de givenchy / ysl pour homme haute concentration / chanel pour monsieur concentree.

    if u buy any of the above, try to keep a decant & spray every 4 hrs - you will get what you are mainly looking for - compliments!!!

    Frapin L'Humaniste(I personally get about 8hrs although many complain about longevity, so it's subjective to skin chemistry diet...etc IMO )

    Costume National Homme is potent stuff and in no way should be used during the warmer weather. I recommend Salvatore Ferragamo pour Homme over Costume National because both share similarities but Ferragamo pour Homme is more versatile and can definitely be worn in the spring or summer weather.

    Bentley Azure sounds great; but without actually sampling it, I don't know for sure.

    One that I CAN recommend for spring/summer would be Acqua di Colonia by Santa Maria Novella. Although it is an EDC, I find the longevity to be EDT strength. Sillage is average to above average depending on how you spray. Worth a sampling at least.

    I like Frank 2 LA, but I think you've tried that one and didn't like it much...

    My other two suggestions would be Anat Fritz Tzora or Diptyque 34 Boulevard Saint Germain.

    * Also, I'd pick up a bottle of Mauboussin M Generation. I've never heard of anyone owning it. The scent itself is an awesome projector and compliment getter, lasts for ages as well. Plus, it's a woody, spicy, sweet incense that women love...under $40.
