    Default Another... pls help me find a fragrance

    Hi... first I will apologize as I know these threads must frustrate you all.

    I am on this forum daily. Love reading all your opinion of fragrances and many buys have been based on people's detailed reviews. Mostly successful.

    I adore fragrances. I will often shower twice or more a day just so I can enjoy something different.

    While my collection doesn't come close to most I've seen here I am still very happy with it. That said I am always looking to find something magical.

    I'm looking for something new. My current favourites are...

    Mancera - Gold and Sand Aoud
    DSquared - Potion Royal Black
    Dior - Oud Ispahan
    Lalique - Encre Noire and both flankers
    Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver EDP
    Rasasi - La Yuqawam

    My skin eats up frags so ideally something rich and powerful.

    I'm interested in Mancera Black to Black, Black Intensitive, Black Line...

    I was very impressed with Amouage Epic and Lyric but both my samples were pre-"reformulation"

    Would like to try Dior Leather Oud but to be honest it scares me a little.

    So based on my ramblings who can recommend me a new fragrance.

    Budget £100-200.

    Much appreciated

    Two suggestions:

    Montale Oudmazing
    Mancera Prestigium Gold

    (the other Manceras you are considering are all nice IMO)

    Terre d'Hermes and Terre d'Hermes Parfum are easy recommendations, and I mean that in a good way. Definitely try both before deciding on either, because they're quite different. Personally, I love TdH Parfum.

    Murdock London, Black Tea. I assume you're in the UK. You should be able to find this one locally. It's excellent. And while you're at it, sample their Patchouli too.

    Amouage, Memoir Man. Sadly for me, I don't like wormwood, but if I did, I'd buy a bottle of Memoir Man and wear the heck out of it.

    Thanks for the quick replies.

    I'll look now at the note breakdown for the Mancera and Montale.

    I already own Terre D'Hermes Parfum, L'Instant EDT and Extreme (vintage), plus L'Erbolario Mehrees which I believe is similar to MR. All of them fantastic frags.

    Yes in the UK thanks. I've never heard of Murdock London. Another I'll look into thanks.

    I am in London for a festival in a couple of weeks and plan on killing two birds with one stone with a detour to sample a few from Amouage.

    How close is Tabac Rouge compared to Tobacco Vanille?

    I've sampled TV and was really impressed with its longevity. I was catching the odd waft of vanilla for 12+ hours. Really nice scent. Never pulled the trigger and bought a FB though. Not sure why. Maybe it wasn't exciting enough.

    My favourite tobacco note so far is Pure Havane. I recently wore it for 3 days in a row...the only fragrance I ever have.

    The note breakdown for Mancera Prestigium Gold look really interesting. Right up my street. Can't see much feedback on it probably due to it being fairly new.

    Cherugi is another one I've looked at more than once. Quote cheap at the minute on Beauty spin. Thanks.

    Don't be afraid of Leather Oud. Just try it. While you're in London you can go to Selfridges to find the Dior Privee fragrances, the Amouage, Mancera, and a number of the other suggestions. The Frederic Malles and Heeleys are at Les Senteurs. Murdock has a shop by Covent Garden/Seven Dials, just a few doors down from the Miller Harris shop, which you should also try and get to.

    I'd suggest looking at the La Fumee line from Miller Harris. They also have a new vetiver fragrance that I tried, which was nice.

    Yes, the Miller Harris Vetiver Insolent is very good. And of course there's Sycomore (also in Selfridges).

    Go to Harrods and try a few Amouage in there. I'd recommend Jubilation XXV. Also, if you get the chance I'd recommend a visit to Bloom Perfumery and Les Scenteurs if you can find the time.

    Seconding Royal Oud. Perhaps Santal 33 will be to your liking as well. Both are definitely worth trying out imho.

    Vetiver Insolent looks quite nice. I often see Miller Harris going cheap on eBay. Doubt they get have ever been faked.

    Thanks for the info Kagey. Festival starts at 1pm so plenty of time for sampling. I was planning on Selfridges and Harrods but Les Sentuers might be a better choice.

    Ken, thanks for the suggestions. I own or have owned all but Knize Ten and have the impression that it would smell dated. If I get the chance I'll put my prejudice to one side and give it a go. Too many good reviews to ignore it.

    Btw Frederic Malle and Miller Harris are also in Selfridges (in the new space at the back, with some more Miller Harris by the Amouages in the front bit). And Bloom Perfumery is in Covent Garden too.

    I find it similar, but better actually... I find Phaedon's offering more wearable, personally. Definitely a great fragrance if you're looking for something done in a similar vein as TV.

    Love Tabac Rouge. Got it as a blind buy after hearing it suggested from some astute members here a while back.

    Another TR > TV here. TR is just so much more wearable to me and I love the ginger note. I get no real tobacco from it though. To me it's gingersnap cookies dusted with cinnamon and drizzled with honey.

    If you like Pure Havane, give 18.21 Man Made Sweet Tobacco Spirits a shot. Great stuff.
