    Default Looking for recommendations for fall/winter with a juniper note

    Hello gents. I would appreciate some recommendations on a fall/winter scent with a light but persistent juniper note - similar to Histoires de Parfums 1899. I love the juniper in the 1899 it is just perfect in intensity.

    I think I would like something with a woody backdrop but not necessary. I tend to favor orientals but am an equal opportunity sampler, any leather has to be soft and if there's oud it has to be smooth - added this info if it helps. My wardrobe is current if that also helps. EdP preferred on account my skin eats fragrances alive but I'll try anything.

    Thank you in advance

    Al Rehab's Sultan, and it's cheap enough here to be worth a blind buy.

    Baie de Genievre - if you can find it.

    Juniper Sling if you want to keep it simple, hassle-free and (relatively) more on the inexpensive side of things (Penhaligons can be had for $50-$60 range for the 100 ml bottle in the US if you shop around).

    I find Guerlain Heritage EdT to have a very noticeable juniper note and it works great in the darker, colder times of the year.

    Nice juniper note in Cerruti 1881 along with herbs, citrus, blackcurrant and wood notes. Perhaps lacking a little warmth for the colder weather but could be worth a try ( it's very cheap)

    For the OP's criteria, Lothair's a better shout from Penhaligon's than Juniper Sling.

    The original Burberry's from the early 80's has that juniper vibe to my nose

    Creed Baie de Genievere is a great choice if you can find it. If not, I'd suggest Amouage Journey Man.

    Journey man is indeed an excellent fall and winter scent but I'm not sure about the persistance of juniper. I think it more evolves around incense. But a great scent nonetheless.
    I recommend it, too.

    First, thank you for all the suggestions.

    Secondly, some first impressions.

    First up is Creed Baie de Genievre from a 1.5ml carded sample put into an atomizer. What my moderately trained nose gets from this discontinued Creed offering is a fairly straightforward juniper that hangs around for a long time which is what I wanted. The note list is fairly short and I can't discern anything over the other aside from the juniper. That being said I don't feel like it's a muddled mess, the other notes work well with each other and overall feels balanced. The scent overall seems 'dry', not a bad thing just an observation. I also found it to be a linear scent. It does sit close to my skin. While I don't want my scent to announce my entrance it may be a bit soft for my taste. Overall impression was good and it has earned another wearing. The final straw against this may be availability but if I like something enough I will go on the hunt if necessary. Longevity was moderate which was nice to see because this is an EdT if I'm not mistaken


    Second sample was not suggested in this tread but was on my try list for quite a while and it has juniper. Sample of (vintage) Hermes Rocabar was acquired in a 5ml Hermes factory sample. The splash style bottle was put into an atomizer. The note list is more involved in comparison to the Creed Baie de Genievre. This is similar to the Creed in that it sits close to the skin. This is a scent that is an easy wear pretty much anytime but I think it would shine better in the fall or winter due to the overall mood of the fragrance. While I can't discern juniper specifically it is a very nice coniferous scent. I did not care for vintage Polo Green (unrelated) - it was just too much but this is 'not enough'. Rocabar will be a pass despite a nice scent. Longevity was poor as are most EdT's on me



    Lalique pour homme Faune EdP is on tap for tomorrow and should be seeing some more arrivals in the mail.

    Lalique pour homme le Faune EdP. I really liked this scent however performance was poor. Performance was in line with many reviews I read despite being an EdP. If longevity was better it would have been a contender.

    Botega Veneta pour homme EdP. This was an odd wearing. It is not a loud scent by any stretch, it seems simple and light but persistent in an odd way. After about an hour or two I could smell virtually nothing but when I moved I was definitely picking it up. After a shower I was strangely able to pick it up again and then later it disappeared again up close but I was catching whiffs upon movement. The pleasent resinous conifer scent has earned more wearings as the performance I got seemed better then most reviews I have read. I will try this around others since it seems nose blindness faded in and out which was odd.
