    Default Select two orientals......

    One out of the four -

    Midnight in Paris
    JHL
    Opium pour Homme
    Jaïpur Homme


    And another one of your choice but (roughly) in the same price bracket as the above four.

    Thanks!

    Hard to choose in the set. Perhaps JHL, simple and classical.

    But still, I feel that in oriental territory Shalimar trumps them all. As do, if you want something marketed to men, Habit Rouge and Egoiste.

    Thank you, cacio!

    If including those marketed to women, I perhaps prefer Opium to all of these!

    For me - Opium pour Homme & Gengis Khan
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve other individuals' acknowledgement or respect.

    I'd go for Opium Homme out of those, with Midnight in Paris a close second.

    I adore MiP. Opium PH is also another solid choice. One of my faves in colder weather.
