    Default I'd like to have a collection that aims to cover the whole fragrance wheell! Suggestions?

    Or perhaps just diversify my wardrobe as best as I can. This isn't just for the sake of collecting, but rather something for every olfactory occasion. Does not matter if it's masculine or feminine.


    Currently looking to get Beyond Love, as I don't have any white florals.

    Kiel's Musk seems like a good sample. I've tried MKK and I enjoyed it, but it's definitely a personal scent that's offensive to everyone else.

    Vintage Rive Gauche as well.

    Un Parfum D'Ailleurs et Feuilles by The Different Company is a good white floral.

    How about an incense? Full incense, Bois D'Encens, Avignon or Franck Boclet Incense.

    For reference fruity chypres I'm partial to Guerlain Mitsouko edp; it's more chypre than fruity on my skin.

    There is so many unique and different scents that it's quite hard to "cover the whole fragrance wheel", even if they are included in the same broad family.

    For example, Beyond Love and Un parfum d'ailleurs have nothing in common, starting with quality, as Kilian is the triumph of cheapness - so you're not really "good" with white florals (and that would happen for many other "not-interested-I-already-have-1-one-of-those", which basically translates into "you'll miss several good fragrances that way" ).
    My current top five:

    Tiffany - Tiffany for Men (vtg)
    Yves Saint Laurent - M7 (vtg)
    Fendi - Theorema
    Tom Ford - Tobacco Vanille
    Gucci - Gucci pour Homme

    I'd have to disagree, I really enjoyed BL and found it to be of great quality. Looked up Un parfum d'ailleurs and it may also be up my alley. You are right that I'd miss several good fragrances that way. I had tried Carnal Flower and it just wasn't for me, for a tuberose comparison

    However, this is my current goal. I gravitate towards gourmands too much and I'm trying to get away from that and try new things for myself. I'd love to try out New Haarlem or Spiritueuse Double Vanille, but that's for the future, not now.

    I'd recommend getting a nice oud, like Oud Royal by Armani or MFK Oud.
