    Default Looking for Recommendations for Next Purchase!

    Hi all! I've started building my collection a lot recently and really enjoy it. Generally I go for sweet club type fragrances so I would like to try get something in a scent catagory I don't currently own. Fragrances I own currently are

    Bvlgari Black
    Ysl La Nuit de L'homme
    Prada l'homme
    JPG Ultra Male
    versace Eros
    dior sauvage
    channel bleu de channel
    abercrombie and fitch first instinct
    Mont Blanc Individuel
    creed original santal
    creed aventus

    I don't really like aquatic type scents, tried bvlgari aqua amara and didn't like that at all, had dg light blue and wouldn't be a big fan of that either. I did try creed green Irish tweed in a sample and love it but it's just out of my budget currently. Don't mind waiting until it is but would like some other options to look at too! For context I'm 26yo living in Ireland so not a hot climate. I like strong scents with good sillage and long lasting preferably, not looking for subtle scents! Thanks for any recomendations you have!

    Some people say Davidoff Cool Water smells a lot like Green Irish Tweed. Had the chance to figure out if there's any truth behind those rumours yet?

    Long lasting, great sillage, cheap but doesn't smell cheap, can recommend.

    I haven't smelled cool water so I don't know being honest

    1 million is really popular over here so hasn't considered that version as I like to be a little different to what's common around me! Will have a look for them though as I would've just walked past! Thanks!

    I've actually never smelled this knowingly either.. I see how popular it is on here and on some YouTube reviews so will definitely look into it!

    Eau De Nuit Oud by Armani perhaps.

    Absolutely - not all immediately 'easy' but pay off in the long run. Prices for the mainline are surprisingly accessible. If I had to recommend one I'd say Heritage. A classy neo-classical scent with proper Guerlain dry down!

    Hey, I'm travelling to Ireland soon, Dublin area. Any fragrance shops I should check out?
    I don't live up near Dublin but I do go up there a little.. main places that you'll be around would be Brown Thomas on Grafton Street, there's a few Perfume Shops you'll find around.. one is in St.Stephens Green Shopping Center which is at the top of Grafton Street. There's also Arnotts which would be only a couple of minutes walk away from there on Henry Street which will be a bit more mainstream but a really famous department store in Dublin.. Debenhams can be quite good too and there's a few of them around! If you are going out of the city the only outlet in Ireland is just outside Dublin called Kildare Village. There's a Penhaligon shop there where you can sample the entire collection and it's all there for sale too! Enjoy your trip!!

    I see you have no oud in your collection. Bogart One Man Show Oud edition is inexpensive introduction into oud universe and it has Bogart signature longevity and silage.
    For more upscale, Montale provides wide spectrum of oud scents.
