    Default Recommendations for my small collection.

    Hi there. I love this forum. So I was never really into fragrances until I got a few as gifts in December (L'eau D'issey, Gentlemen Only and Le Beau Male). Previous to that I had only used Adg and Cool Water, which I still love. But then I decided to buy a couple of bottles, and then a few more and before I knew it, in just over a month, I have 15 bottles. Now I've realised that I cant go on like this, so I've decided to stop at 20 bottles and then take some time and explore some niche fragrances. So what would you guys recommend as good designer fragrances to complete my collection (for now).

    In addition to the ones I've mentioned above, I have Terre D Hermes, Allure Homme Edition Blanche, AMen, Amen Pure Havane, Versace Pour Homme, Dior Homme Intense, Gucci Pour Homme II, LIDGE, Rive Gauche and La Nuit de L'Homme. I would like to get Pure Malt but cant find it at any store, but it will probably be my next buy.

    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 on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    I recommend Chanel Egoiste (the regular Egoiste, not Platinum), which is warm smooth sandalwoody.

    Pure Malt is a great choice. Here in the US, it has reappeared in dept stores, so who knows, it may be brought back elsewhere too.

    Thanks for the suggestions, looking forward to trying some of those out. I've seen most of them at the stores here, but have not been able to find Burberry London anywhere. Will have to keep a lookout.
