Thread: Addictive Winter Winner
Hey guys, I have been looking hard and have got down to only these houses Mona Di Orio ,Serge Lutens, Amouage and Frederic Malle.
Is there a winter fragrance which is absolutely addictive and you can't get rid off ? If you guys think that other houses suit the brief better then fire away.
I will be more specific, winter daytime !
From Mona Di Orio: Cuir and also Oud
From Frederic Malle: Bois D'Orage and also Musc Ravageur

Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.
I don't know that I'd name a house, but this winter LIDGE (L'Instant De Guerlain pour homme eau Extreme) by Guerlain and Epic Man by Amouage have been winners for me.
From the houses you listed:
Mona di Orio: Vanille and Cuir
Serge Lutens: Chergui and Fille en Aiguilles
Amouage: Epic and Jubilation XXV
Frederic Malle: Musc Ravageur
Those are my favorites. It is hard for me to find a good fragrance for Winter compared to other seasons though.
Serge- Fumerie Turque is a pretty obvious choice (sweet and smokey). Borneo 1834, as a thicker gourmand, would be fantastic for winter. Ambre Sultan would be great, and MKK would work very well. I absolutely loathe Gris Clair, but if I were to wear it, I'd wear it in the winter. There are probably many others, but these are the Lutens I'm familiar with that I think would work for winter.
Amouage- Well, the attars would be beautiful in winter (and there are tons of them that the western market isn't familiar with that I haven't heard anything about, I'm curious to hear about these). I'm honestly not that into too many of Amouage's fragrances. Jubilation XXV might do well in winter, I can certainly picture that.
Frederic Malle- I'm finding this one pretty tough. I don't know a lot of the line. How about Geranium pour monsieur? I can totally picture the minty floral shining in snowy weather. It would be beautiful.
Mona- The only Mona I actually like is Vanille, and I think it's work pretty well in the winter. I'm kind of blech to everything else.
Mona di Orio's Vanille is definitely a nice winter scent as are Ambre Sultan and Chergui from Serge Lutens.
I'm a great admirer of Jubilation XXV and only ever where it in the winter months but some may find it better suited for nighttime, rather than daytime, wear.
Serge Lutens-Fourreau Noir
Outside those houses Amoassi-PG(fantastic frag.)
You've got some great suggestions above. Adding my $0.02, Slumberhouse Vikt extrait has been the scent this winter that grabbed me and just won't let go. Licorice + incense. I'm even wearing it to work. Can't put it down….

From the houses you've listed, the two fragrances that I've been wearing a lot this season are Serge Lutens Chergui and Amouage Fate man.
SL Fumerie Turque of the houses you listed, but you should definitely check out Profumum Arso. It's my #1 winter "go to" fragrance.
Thanks for such great suggestions guys, i will definitely try them out. As of now i am leaning towards Malle but i will check out the rest for sure.
Musc Ravageur. Women will be running after you, screaming your name and throwing their handbags and panties at the windows of your chauffeur-driven black Range Rover as you speed off into the night. In my opinion.
Lutens - Muscs Kublai Khan
LIDGE is the one I think of. So good I just want to smell it by putting my nose down my shirt.
MDO I would go with Vetiver, Serge Lutens I would go with Chergui or Fumerie Turque, Frederic Malle my beloved Musc Ravageur and Amouage gets Memoir Man.
My current top ten:
1. Oud Wood
2. Straight to Heaven
3. Epic Man
4. Santal 33
5. Tonka Imperial
