    You should definitely try Opus X from Amouage's Library Collection: rose, geranium, varnish, oud. It's on the odd side, but I find it amazing. I also love Lyric Man and Sunshine Man.

    It sounds like you're leaving out house Chanel, specifically Coromandel, if you haven't tried it. I think you'd like it based on the others you've listed.

    +1 HdP Ambre 114, Moulin Rouge, 1969
    +1 Montale Black Aoud, Attar
    +1 Amouage Lyric Man (haven't tried woman, but I hear it is very good if not better)

    Opus X sounds amazing, is it in stock usually?
    Currently wearing: Néroli Sauvage by Creed

    Definitely 1969 -- the opening is amazing

    I actively only dislike SM from ELdO

    OPUS X is blisteringly good
