Please list me 2 fragrances that would improve my wardrobe. I've filled out my Tried and Owned list.
The only rule is to choose fragrances that you personally haven't gotten bored of and aren't on my prior "Owned" or "Tried" list.
I'm going to do some sampling at The Perfumed Court to explore. The only ones I've considered buying full bottles in my tried list are L'air du desert Marocain and Gris Clair. I want to try quite a few more before I pull the trigger on those.
Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille

MY STEALTHY FREEDOM.
Chanel Pour Monsieur
Chanel 28 La Pausa
Etat libre d'orange Rien or Tom of Finland: good leathers (the first superbutch, the second smooth and lemony). I see you had K10 and liked it, Rien is even butcher and more animalic, while ToF is smoother, but still dry.
A floral: Diptyque Ombre dans l'eau edp (green vegetal and rose). Or, if it were available, Lutens Sarrasins (jasmine leather), though it is a Paris exclusive.
If you like oriental fragrances buy Jaïpur Homme. Even if you don't like orientals, sample it. I can't imagine a sound collection without Jaïpur Homme.
Xerjoff Blue Hope
Guerlain Spirituese Double Vanille
Creed Selection Verte
I sampled two at the discount store at the mall: Dior Homme and Fahrenheit. The tester for Fahrenheit was probably too old because it was like a light scent that was an extremely faded version of Tommy Bahama (pencil shavings and booze). Dior Homme was like iris and leather making a black licorice quality. Eventually it relaxes into a light soapy clean vetiver. There's some lavender hidden in there somewhere. I really like this one but in a dry winter it fades quickly.
There are lots of good choices you guys have brought me. The ones I'm going to sample for now (and are available at PC) are Derby, Antaeus, Aventus, Declaration, Ombre dans l'eau, 28 La Pausa, and Chene. They all look intriguing and I already like Dior Pour Homme.
Good choice with the LDDM.
Guerlain - Homme L'eau Boisee - Fresh grass, juicy lime, white rum, woody refined vetiver.
Van Cleef & Arpels - Midnight in Paris EDP - Leather, Incense, Almonds, Black Tea

Tom Ford Tuscan Leather
Aventus for sure.. the only frag i own that every time i smell it it makes me go Mmmm lol.
And if you haven't tried millesime imperial yet you've gotta sniff it atleast once.. a beautiful fruity melon accord with a salty sea air note. And virgin island water.. a tropical lime & coconut frag that makes you feel like you're at the beach. People can say what they like about creed but one thing's for sure.. they make some amazing fragrances. Oh and get your nose on the dior prive line.. bois d'argent, ambre nuit, oud ispahan. Amazing line!
Tuscan Leather is something I've been meaning to try.
The Dior privee line has some potential. Oud ispahan sound interesting and so does bois d'argent.
Great ideas guys!
L'Artisan's Tea for Two, Amouage Epic man,
LDDM is great. I also agree with the Antaeus, Fahrenheit, and Bel Ami suggestions.
My favorites in no particular order:
Vintage Antaeus, Vintage Bel Ami, Puredistance M, Vetiver Extraordinaire, Tauer L'Air du Desert Marocain, MDCI Invasion Barbare, Morabito Or Black, Sycomore, Gucci Pour Homme I, Geranium Pour Monsieur, Avignon, Bois D'Ascese
Acqua di Parma Colonia Essenza
L'homme de Coeur by Divine
Both are perfectly blended, sophisticated floral masculines.
Okay I've sampled a few. I tried Cartier Declaration and it's like a clean floral version of Terre D'Hermes so I'll stick with TdH. I was forced to try Nicole Miller for Men and it was like an imitation of Burberry Brit for Men. I was also forced to try Declaration Bois Bleu which is a weaker version of Coriolan with less leaves and citrus which makes it worse. I finally found Infusion Vetiver by Prada and bought 200ml for $90 since I love it. I like the light vetiver but the ginger/tarragon/pepper make this a great scent. What's great is that it's something I can wear in any season and lasts on my skin in a dry winter. I can probably use it in an office as well.
After an insane amount of research I'm sampling:
Homme L'eau Boisee
Homme Intense EDP
Blackbird - House of Matriarch.
Chypre Palatin - Parfums MDCI
Alternate to either above - L'Ombre Fauve by Parfumerie Generale
