    Default Flankers you wish existed, but don't.

    Are there any fragrances you wish had a flanker? If so, what would it be?

    I wish Hermes would make a Noir version of Terre d'Hermes. That orange note is marvelous, and it's incredibly versatile. I adore TdH Parfum, but I really wish there were a more night oriented version of it. Something darker with a base that turns toward cozy. I know, I know, I know, Oud is everywhere these days, but this is a case where an Oud flanker could be phenomenal. Think Royal Oud with that marvelous Jean-Claude Ellena orange note in the heart to round it out. I'd say SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!!!! Obviously, I also wish Creed would make an orange flanker for Royal Oud. I love Royal Oud, but I do wish there were another version with a bit of a dark citrus or fruit in its heart.

    What about you?

    Lol. Okay I'm kidding. Flankers don't usually work for me so therefore I'm not a fan. I did like the TDH flanker though. Seemed fresh but I'm content with the original.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    From what I have read before I think D & G The One Intense will be a big wish!

    Burberry London Intense.

    People love this fragrance while complain about it's longevity and projection, so maybe an EDP version of this might be interesting.

    Ofcourse D&G The One Intense is very desirable as well.

    I'd like to see a night version of Acqua Di Gio, perhaps called Nuit Di Gio.

    A*Men Pure Cacao/Pure Chocolate: with all this talk about LIDGE, I'd like to see Thierry Mugler do their version of pachoulli and cacao. I imagine it being sweeter than LIDGE.

    Wait, aren't you just describing the original A*Men???

    Maybe with this cross-fertilization of LIDGE and A*Men we could see a L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Eau Extreme Cafe with a freshly ground coffee note instead of the cocoa.

    LIDGE with a coffee note sounds nice. But I mean a flanker of A*Men with the cacao note strengthened and enhanced. It already has patchouli so a stronger cacao note would be interesting with that A*Men DNA in the background.

    Gucci Envy For Men - Black or Intense, or both Don't get me wrong, I get excellent longevity and projection from it, but love the scent and would like flankers that somehow complement it. Right now it's the only thing coming to my mind.

    Antaeus with more tobacco, designer citrus scents at higher strengths, various crossovers between famous 80s powerhouses, but with a more gourmand twist, Chopard Nobel Vetiver and Noble Cedar, the latter with the same notes (but as in the case of other designer fragrances) a higher concentration could not harm.

    by Kilian Amber Oud Noir

    The original is a nice, unique scent, with amazing longevity. However, it has no Oud in it at all, and leans a bit feminine. Maybe put some oud in it, and a little tobacco to just give it some heft/depth while still maintaining the rest of the structure. I think that would be pretty nice.

    I've started a thread on this before, but I want a Green Irish Tweed flanker. A floral one. With rose. And I want something to make it darker and deeper.

    NO OUD!!!!

    Those of you wanting Oud flankers should be ashamed.
