    Too many to mention but I'll give it a shot:

    L'Ombre Fauve
    Aomassai
    Coze
    Arabian Horse
    Harmatan Noir
    Cuir Venenum

    And many many more

    thanx, Hed...is there something on the same vibe of Cuir Venenum or anything really green a la Polo?

    In general, a high quality line with a bit of redundancy in PG's tending to noodle on similar ambery-gourmands.

    L'Ombre Fauve
    Felanilla
    Tubereuse Couture
    Corps Et Ames
    Cuir d'Iris

    ...Honorable mentions to Papyrus de Ciane and Cedre Sandaraque.

    Like many lines, some good ones and some not so good ones.

    For me:

    L'Ombre Fauve
    Corps et Ames
    Un Crime Exotique

    None, ahah. Except perhaps Aomassai and Cozé n.02 - but they're rather just the most passable ones among the PG I've tried.
    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 was wearing Bois Blond a few weeks ago going to the movies when a woman tapped me on the shoulder in line and said "that's the most beautiful cologne I've ever smelled". I had to tell her what it was and even showed it to her on Luckyscent's website.

    Funny how a compliment like that will change your thoughts about a particular scent. I always liked Bois Blond but it's never been in my top 10 or something I would regularly reach for.

    It's the hay note. Women love Chergui on a man for the same reason -- imo

    Louanges Profane for me

    The only one I've tried I ended up getting a full bottle of, L'Ombre Fauve, which is just excellent in my opinion.

    I like Cuir venenum. I cannot really think of anything similar, the lambic beer note is quite unique.

    Patch intrigant is a big, fun, old style patch.

    I'll add another voice to the recognition of Bois Blond, which oddly slipped my mind earlier: my first must-have fragrance, and one I revisit fondly, though the magic in the scent in mostly in the top and heart. Dry grass, hay, coumarin type of accord, not the blonde woods one might picture from the title. Very much a scent of place.

    Tubereuse Couture. One of the most creative take on the classic tuberose theme

    Harmatan noir: Reminds me of aventus without the fruit opening. FBW

    Indochine: Benzoin, cardamom and honey. This is so good because its not overly sweet, but it's very gourmand and I love the way this smells. FBW

    Brűlure de Rose: this has to be my favorite of the entire line. I love rose, but this is a lil bit different. The rose note is accompanied by coco and patchouli and it gives it a wet clay type accord to go along with the rose. I think it's beautiful. I've got a sample that I sniff all the time, wishing my wife will fall for it so I can buy it for her. FBW
    Seasonal rotation:

    Original Santal
    Apple Brandy
    Tuscan Leather
    Silver Mountain Water
    Lyric Man

    Don't forget querelle. Probably my most favourite foresty incense ala Memoir Man

    I have:

    L'ombre Fauve: Great for autumn

    Cuir Venenum: Beer, ashtray, musk, and a grape juice like aroma that actually reminds me of kudzu flowers.

    Psychotrope: Strange and watery, and very different from the others. Can be worn in summer with no problem.

    L'oiseau de Nuit: Dusty fruity davana and amber. Similar to L'ombre Fauve, but softer and sweeter.

    Iv'e tried others like Cuir d'Iris and Coze', both of which very good.
