Thread: Creamy/Sour/Sweet scent
Can anyone recomment a sour/sweet scent with a creamy dry down ?
Sevigne 2 has a sour opening with a creamy dry down IMO.
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 my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.
Rive Gauche pour Homme as an extremely non-sweet (or perhaps marginally sweet, at most) version: starts out very acidic, astringent and antiseptic, quite heavy on the citrus, some moderately spiciness with marginal sweetness during the mid notes, ends quite creamy, soapy and almost "balmy" after drying down and interacting with skin chemistry. However, only recommending this particular fragrance as a clean-cut, mature but not old-fashioned, non-gourmand and non-experimental variation on this particular theme.
May be .... L'Occitan by L'Occitane
+1 to L'Occitan
Not something I typically wear, but I recently got a sample of Diptyque Eau Duelle and that certainly had a creamy drydown. Oh, and Intoxicated by Kilian has a sweet "Latte and baked goods" sort of drydown. Very nice.
Egoiste. Surprising sour piquant citrus opening, soon becoming sweet in the cinamon phase drying down to the notorious creamy sandlewood.

Leather Oud Musk (Leather, Oud, Musk, Beeswax, Tobacco, Strawberry, Incense & Amber)
I am thinking perhaps Guerlain Habit Rouge or Jicky.

Creamy how? Like creamy sandalwood or creamy vanilla/chocolate?
H.M. by Hanae Mori opens with sweet citrus notes and light florals, it dries down into a rich vanilla/chocolate base. Go for the EDP if you want a richer, creamier base, the EDT if you want a little more complexity with the citrus and floral notes.
Elixir des Merveilles Hermes might fit the bill too. Opens with sweet orange and features a creamy caramel/amber base.
Personally, I find L'Humaniste opens with a sweet citrusy gin and tonic and finally dries down to a sort of creamy, powdery texture (after several other stages).
Immortelle gives this effect for me. Perhaps 1740 Marquis de Sade or L'Art de la Guerre.
Since the house of Chanel was also mentioned, perhaps Allure Homme Sport may be worth testing and considering
I want something that smells sour/sweet and ends with a rich creamy base of citrus, amber and maybe milk or wine.

something like Perry Ellis Portfolio Green for Men but with better projection

Sour - yes
Sweet - yes, towards the dry-down.
Creamy - Sort off when the amber & tonka start showing up.
Vtg Egoiste also covers, although its opening isn't sour citrus per se; it's straight forward sharp citrus.
Agree with Edition Blanche
Also along those lines and a terrific, virtually unknown cheap gem is Samba Kiss Me MAN.(blue bottle) Sweet and creamy with a opening of pepper and sour lime kick...awesome scent along the same lines as the Chanel but about $15 for a 100ml. Read the reviews, if you don't believe me
