    Fir absolute does that to me. It's my favorite scent.

    With that said, from a fully created fragrance standpoint, there are quite a few that draw me in.

    Fille en Aiguilles
    Norne
    Good Fir 11
    Cape Heartache
    A City on Fire
    El Cosmico
    Arso
    Blood Cedar
    Blackbird
    Cypres Musc

    All of these bring on pine/fir to some degree. Some more than others. Cypres Musc off course brings the cypress.They're all wonderful in their own right.



    Olibanum rich scents also bring nose to wrist for me:

    Tanoke 07
    Olibanum
    Cardinal
    Grimoire

    Sorry, probably bored you long enough. There are many others, but these are some of my faves.

    Mimosa
    Coconut
    Fig
    lncense
    Sandalwood
    Amber

    None. That’s why I’m still on the hunt.

    Speaking of notes - jasmine. I've had jasmine bushes growing outside my window when I was a kid and it brings back memories of the incoming spring and summer heat, sunshine, and carefree days which are rather rare now that I'm adult.

    I'd also love a fragrance that truly replicates the smell of coffee. That, and tobacco. Just the pure head-space of both without any added bits. But alas, never found one that came even close to it.

    As for fragrances... there are only a handful that I don't get fatigued by in the long run:

    - Iris Silver Mist
    - Sarrasins
    - Vetiver Babylone / d'Hiver
    - Vetiver Insolent
    - Bois des Iles Parfum
    - Santal Majuscule
    - Addict
    - Shalimar
    - Eau des Merveilles
    - Bottega Veneta
    - Full Incense
