    Cool Help Gifting A Fragrance, Please!

    My brother-in-law asked me to get him a fragrance for the holidays, as he's still been working with the same bottle of La Nuit de L'Homme I gave to him several years ago. He loves the stuff, but would like another option.

    I'm not looking to spend more than $100.

    I'd like to get him something fairly different than La Nuit, as I'm looking to avoid redundancy. At the same time, he said he wanted something for winter.

    My bro-in-law is a young 33, athletically built, single, good looking guy who works in finance in Manhattan. He's fairly stylish but not excessive or ostentatious about it, and he has dark features. He's clean cut and well groomed. As far as his personality, he's friendly and outgoing, but at the same time low-key. He's not obnoxious or loud.

    He's looking for something to wear when he goes out, and also something he could wear to work from time to time.

    I've been considering getting him Terre d'Hermes. I'm torn between the EDT or Parfum. But I'm also not sure if this is the best option for him, perhaps it's just my "inner frag-head" going for this. How is Terre generally received by the opposite sex out there in single world? It's one of a few fragrances I've owned forever and have never heard any comments about at all (for better or worse). My wife likes it and I like it. That's all I know.

    [ So what do you think about TdH in this scenario? Do you have any recommendations you think would be better for him?

    I had also been thinking about Mancera Cedrat Boise, which I also think is really nice, and a good alternative to Aventus, which is just to expensive in this case. I thought Cedrat Boise might be a little more fun than Terre.

    What do you guys think of The One Eau de Parfum? Too similar to La Nuit?

    Any recommendations are appreciated!

    I will NOT be getting him any of the following however:

    Dior Homme Intense
    Sauvage (in any iteration)
    Invictus
    L'Instant de Guerlain Extreme
    Code or any of its flankers


    Thanks!

    I think TdH is OK, my wife hates it, for whatever that's worth from the female reaction perspective.

    Maybe something like Prada L'Homme Intense? It's darker and good for winter, certainly seems like it fits your brother in law's personality/look. Would be a great "Wall Street" type of scent IMO.

    Not a fragrance I own, but I've smelled it and really like it, significantly more than Prada L'Homme, which I find boring. Just a thought.

    I like Terre d´Hermes and think it would work out fine, although it might be a little common.

    A new one that is VERY good and not talked about much is the new Mugler Alien Man.

    Good recommendation! L'Homme Intense was actually one that I was considering as well. Like you said, it seems to match his look/personality. Do you think it's different enough from La Nuit? I haven't smelled the YSL in at least 3 years.

    I'll add this to the list of possibilities.

    This really seems to be flying under the radar. I haven't heard much about it and I usually buy all Mugler's releases yet I've avoided this one. It sounds interesting though, but I'd probably check it out for myself first before buying it blind for another person. That's a little risky. I'll try to get a sample of it if I can.

    Pardon is probably too heavy for him (and too expensive for me). I own Pardon and really like it, but it's hard to wear for a full day of work (in my experience). I'd like something with more versatility. I'll look into the Fazzolari. Thanks.

    Thank you.

    Endymion is nice, but I recently bought a bottle and felt like it lost a lot of what made it so special to begin with. It seemed much more lavender heavy in spite of the coffee and as a result lost some of its pizzaz. I have a feeling it was reformulated...poorly. Personally, I'm not a big fan of Yves Rocher though I have heard good things about CV. As far as Azzaro Homme L'Eau, I'll have to look into it. I've never smelled it before. Maybe it's something I'd like for myself! I'll check it out/read about it.

    Of the three I think GHI has the best shot. Fougere Royale is definitely too serious/traditional for his taste. His father has a lot of stuff like that and he doesn't like them. And while I personally think Eau Sauvage Parfum is fantastic, there's something about the heft and seriousness of it that might be a little too much for him.

    I'll give him a sniff of GHI from the bottle I own and see what he thinks. I love the stuff, but it's an odd scent (i.e., different) for an inexperienced guy. He's probably never encountered anything like it. It'll be easy enough for him to try it though, so I'll give it a shot.

    While it's traditional to a degree, it has a modern edge and it's just so damn likable. It's versatile. My only concern is the women he talks to may find it "old mannish." I don't think it takes much for them to say that about a fragrance. But it's a good one. I'll add it to the list of consideration.

    So far I'm considering:

    Prada L'Homme Intense
    Guerlain Homme Intense
    Sartorial

    I'll be investigating:

    Azzaro Homme L'Eau
    Alien Man

    I think it's a good complement to La Nuit, as it's fairly different, and while La Nuit has the romance factor, Terre has a certain classy sophistication. Thanks for helping me decide between the EDT and Parfum. At least that's no longer a question!

    Years ago, I had a gift sample set from Sephora where, after wearing the samples, you could choose a full sized bottle of your favorite for free/discount (I forget which). That was kind of fun.
    What if you did the same - get some vials/sprayers samples of what you think he might like then get him a full bottle. It could be from Sephora or your own collection, maybe.
    I dunno, just typing out loud here...

    But to your post, Terre Parfum is good. Or one of the Narciso Bleu, even the Parfum. Antaeus. Declaration Essence. Grey Vetiver Parfum. Voyage Parfum. Bel Ami Vetiver.

    I'd be very careful gifting TdH in any form, it's very hit or miss.

    Have you considered Pure Havane or Pure Malt? They're both unique, and high quality, Winter themed, yet totally different than most stuff that's out. Nothing like La Nuit either. I can see why La Nuit would take him so long to use, it's not really a daily wearer if you ask me, it's more of a special occasions type of fragrances. Though the same could be said with the 2 I suggested too.

    Being your bro's age, and of similar attributes, I think I could relate. I mostly hang around people my age and younger, so I get feedback on my frags all the time too. That's also partially why I woulnd't recommend TdH, as it has garnered some not so positive reactions.. I also think you could dice into the Guerlain I'deal line, most of them are really nice and are appropriate for his situation.

    That was my concern about Terre d'Hermes in general. I've always loved it, even when I was 10 years younger. But I have no idea how young 30 somethings and the late 20's crowd reacts to it. I like the Pure idea, my concern there is that sometimes the patchouli can sometimes be overwhelming depending on how it comes out in the base, or it can come out in a way that totally reminds people of Angel...and that's a bad thing. But I like the idea. Maybe what I'll end up doing is taking some of these ideas and putting them into sample vials (as MattJP suggested) and then seeing which he likes most and getting him a bottle.

    Keep the ideas coming, guys! There's some good ones here. Thank you.

    Both Cedrat Boise and The One put that "sparkle" in my girlfriend's eye. She's 37, and if I do say so myself, quite attractive, lol. Between the two I think The One would make for a a better winter fragrance, and wouldn't be redundant with La Nuit, though I haven't smelled the current formulations. TdH, eh, I've never been quite as enamored with it as others here on the board. The gf finds it just "ok". A great fragrance for winter, and one which most ladies I know have enjoyed, including the lady in my life who matters...Egoiste.

    From *this female’s point of view, Bel Ami by Hermes is more interesting than TdH, but TdH is always a safer choice. TdH is basically a default male scent.

    I love Bel Ami, one of my tops, but I didnt grow to appreciate what it was and is now until I experienced much more on the market.
    Amazing stuff, but im not certain its meant for "nights out" meaning "the club".
    Not sure how young ladies would feel about Bel Ami and its warm, rich spicy leather.

    You have great taste to love this one though.

    True, with the samples.. Matter a fact.. get a nice label maker. I just got an amazing one on Amazon through a deal. I'll link it below (for anyone really looking for a solid label maker for decants) Although I paid half the price it is now, it's still a steal at $20. Note: it doesn't come with colored labels, only white, but there are tons of designs, and templates to choose from, programmed into the label maker. Make those decants look professional! Ok, rant over.

    Wow...I got some news that changes things a little bit:

    I have to give him the fragrance THIS Saturday. So I basically have about 2 days to make a decision (and Fragrancenet is out of the question, since they live 10 minutes away from me but take two weeks to ship to me). I incorrectly thought I had at least 3 weeks to make a decision.

    So neither one of us really have time to sample anything.

    Right now I'm leaning toward these, but still looking for more ideas:

    TDH Parfum
    Sartorial
    Prada L'Homme Intense

    Dior Homme (thanks to the one female member above...who it looks like now edited her original response to eliminate Dior Homme...but I like that as a recommendation)
    Cedrat Boise
    The One EDP

    Guerlain Homme Intense and Pure Havane are two that I'll be able to have him sample really any time that I see him, but I won't see him before Saturday, so I'm going to hold off on these for now and maybe consider them as gifts down the road...see if he takes to the samples I put together.

    Yesterday I actually gave an uncle The One EDP (a big 5 oz. bottle). And it's his uncle actually (my in-law), so I'm not sure if he'll want the same one. Still, it seems like a very appropriate option, and seems like the perfect nighttime option for a guy his age during the winter.

    Alien Man and Azzaro Homme L'Eau will have to hold off for now. I need to sample them first. I'm wary of a blind buy to begin with when gifting, but especially since I've heard so little about these.

    Anyway, I'm enjoying seeing all the different recommendations, and being Basenoter, what will probably happen is that I'll buy one for my brother in-law and another two or three for myself based on the recommendations in this thread. I mean, don't we all do that when buying fragrances for others?

    Maybe a great gift would be a box or a set of samples.
    As a young nose, maybe he'd like to experience more than get a full bottle of something.
    Tough to know his true preferences.

    Just FYI, FragranceNet on Google Express, when picking another expedited shipping option, which was also free, they shipped it FexEx and I got it next day, same state.

    Maybe just a gift card to Sephora? That way you know he'll get a fragrance, since there's really nothing else there for men. He'll get what he wants too of course.

    Dior Homme (thanks to the one female member above...who it looks like now edited her original response to eliminate Dior Homme...but I like that as a recommendation)
    Cedrat Boise
    The One EDP

    Guerlain Homme Intense and Pure Havane are two that I'll be able to have him sample really any time that I see him, but I won't see him before Saturday, so I'm going to hold off on these for now and maybe consider them as gifts down the road...see if he takes to the samples I put together.

    Yesterday I actually gave an uncle The One EDP (a big 5 oz. bottle). And it's his uncle actually (my in-law), so I'm not sure if he'll want the same one. Still, it seems like a very appropriate option, and seems like the perfect nighttime option for a guy his age during the winter.

    Alien Man and Azzaro Homme L'Eau will have to hold off for now. I need to sample them first. I'm wary of a blind buy to begin with when gifting, but especially since I've heard so little about these.

    Anyway, I'm enjoying seeing all the different recommendations, and being Basenoter, what will probably happen is that I'll buy one for my brother in-law and another two or three for myself based on the recommendations in this thread. I mean, don't we all do that when buying fragrances for others?
    Glad you put Dior Homme into consideration. I’d say it’s a less serious scent than my current recommendation Bel Ami, perhaps more “agreeable”.
    The French have a phrase for it. The bastards have a phrase for everything.
