    Default What's your favorite Balsamic fragrance?

    For the longest time, I thought the term balsamic meant that the fragrance had a sour/tart note like balsamic vinaigrette. Guess I was wrong. Anyhow, I'd like to reeducate myself on balmy fragrances. What's your favorite sweet/resinous/warm fragrances? My favorite at the moment is Interlude Man.

    Some of mine include Ambre Sultan, Idole de Lubin, Tahani Attar, and La Myrrhe. I might also describe Jubilation XXV, another of my favorites, as "balsamic."

    Balsamico della Mecca - beautiful stuff
    Eau Lente from Diptyque
    Opopanax Imperiale - the original Nereides blend before reformulating
    Myrrhe et Delires (I suppose - it's actually quite bright but has that underscore of a balsamic thing)

    I came in thinking of Chergui and Dia Man, only to discover that you had already laid out a whole buffet of beauties.

    I love them all with Rose being my favourite. I enjoy wearing all of them, though.

    Got to add Couvent des Minimes Eau des Missions to this list. Cracking scent and the price is a bonus.
