    Default Can I get some recommendations based on the frags I already have?

    Hey guys, I’ve been out of the fragrance game for a while, I’ve just been coasting on the bottles I already own but I want to try some new ones.

    The ones I own and love are:
    Traversée du Bosphore
    La nuit
    Rochas man
    Midnight in Paris edp
    The Dreamer
    Tokyo milk Bittersweet, la vie la mort, dead sexy
    Hanae Mori
    Lolita Lempicka au masculin

    The ones I Don’t like:
    Lidge
    Cacharel pour homme
    Caron L’anarchiste


    As you can see I tend to gravitate towards sweet/gourmand/“romantic” scents. I love that warm powder type of scent but I’m looking for anything you guys think are good, I trust the judgment and tastes of this community. Thanks so much!

    Welcome (back).

    Among relatively recent niche gourmands, I would recommend looking into the Lubin trio Korrigan-Galaad-Akkad, especially Korrigan. Slightly chocolatey, a bit of incense, radiant, but somehow not heavy.

    Also, not sure you were out of the game already, but I quite like Lutens Jeux de Peau, a hypergourmand (buttered toast, caramel).

    Frapin 1270
    Yohji Homme
    Dior Feve Delicieuse
    Arabie
    Five o'Clock Au Gingembre
    Chergui (borderline gourmand)

    And probably a bunch of other Serge Lutens I'm leaving out. I'm not keen on this genre though, and the only one I'd really recommend is Yohji Homme, another borderline gourmand.
    Most worn:

    Black Comme des Garçons, Borneo 1834 Serge Lutens, Patchouli Santa Maria Novella

    This would be a good option.

    L'Artisan Noir Exquis: This is based on your owning Traversee du Bosphor. Noir Exquis is another gourmand by Bernard Duchafour, equally as complex and compelling as Traversee but totally different. It revolves around roasted chestnuts, coffee, honey, and vanilla. It smells wonderful-- a true gourmand that doesn't become overly sweet and has a mature, complex nature. I think it's the best thing L'Artisan has released in a decade, and if you like Traversee, I think you'll like this one as well. It also shares some similarities with Rochas Man, but is deeper and more complex. Duchafour is a master.
