    And one more: the brilliant Ajmal 'Silver Shade' which is like Rasasi 'Al Wisam Day' with more citrus added and also lasting long! Once these could be bought for €15/100ml.
    My Top '11' :

    - Dolce & Gabbana: Pour Homme (vtg)
    - Paco Rabanne: Pour Homme (vtg)
    - Azzaro: Pour Homme (vtg)
    - Tom Ford: Ombré Leather
    - Guerlain: Héritage (vtg)
    - Mancera: Red Tobacco
    - YSL: Kouros (Fraîcheur)
    - Armani: Acqua di Gio Profumo
    - MPG: Santal Noble
    - Hermes: Terre d'Hermes
    - Amouage: Interlude

    L'Erbolario "Ginepro Nero" - VERY close to Terre d'Hermes Parfum, but a bit more straightforward, more woody and with this unique green/damp floral note amped up. A recent favourite.

    I see that you put vermeil pour homme very high in your top 11 list , and it really deserves , it is a multifaceted scent that oozes with beauty and elegance.

    Although a gorgeous fragrance. It’s not at all cheap anymore since discontinued. Occasionally you can find bottles that are overstocked from retailers for good prices but it’s rare. In 2008, 3.3 oz of this was $30, in 2019 it’s $140+

    Glad to own and use this, one of the best personal investments ever in fragrances with both the TDH and, also more generally, a vetiver and/or peppery-spicy theme.

    Yet another good TDH reinterpretation at only a fraction of the cost can also be Zara Norrland-not just strikingly similar to TDH, a fellow perfume enthusiast friend who also owns and regularly wears this also identified certain similarities with TF Grey Vetiver (at only a fraction of the cost compared to both GV and TDH).

    Aramis by Aramis. Smell like Derby when I’m drunk.
