    Default Urgently needed Honey scent

    Hello,

    I'm after suggestions on honey scents, or even honey scents that share the limelight with other notes. Also this is my first post

    Welcome to you Smiling_prophet! Enjoy your time here at Basenotes! Perhaps Honey Aoud by Montale or L'Envol by Cartier

    I'm always happy to recommend my favorite indie house, SIXTEEN92. This one is amazing: https://sixteen92.com/products/summe...nt=20586914305

    Blood & Honey. Blood orange, wildflower honey (vegan), pale amber, honeysuckle

    Extremely vivid and realistic honey/honeysuckle fragrance.

    ps. Welcome to Basenotes.

    I hate being the "vintage guy" chiming in on a thread like this (I have more modern than vintage fragrances actually), but, I honestly feel Gatsby by Pacoma is worth a sniff if you find it at a price you find comfortable. It's a great scent that has a honey note. The resins and wood notes give it a an overall feel that makes me picture the honey, the comb, and even the wood box a bee farmer would have the hive in. There are also some spices which can make one imagine the wildflowers the bees may have harvesting. There's no oakmoss or other materials to make this feel like a vintage fragrance, which is why I have no problem recommending it in this case. Best regards.

    From what I've smelled, Back to Black impressed me the most with its honey note mixed with tobacco.

    OK, you have peaked my curiosity. Why do you urgently need a honey scent?

    Is poohbear lost again. (I just watched the Christopher Robin movie the other night)

    +1 L'Envol (EdP)
    +1 Back to Black

    Serge Lutens Miel de Bois is supposed to be one of the reference honey scents, and also one I didn't have the chance to try sadly. It is supposed to have a very strong, animalic quality to it however.

    Parfums de Marly Oajan

    A very pleasant Honey/Cinnamon/Spices fragrance. Excellent performance and the Honey/Cinnamon notes are prominent throughout and the fragrance is soft so not aggressive. Very pleasing take on Honey. Only downfall is it’s PdM so the price point is a bit high.

    It’s not talked about much but it’s top 5 in the house IMO

    Thirding Slowdive. It's a truly realistic honey—not overly sweet but impossibly deep and moody, evokes the entire beehive and surrounding wildflowers. Two thumbs way up for it.

    I second Slowdive for a sweet honey.

    For a slightly less sweet and a bit more animalic honey, I'd suggest Anatole Lebreton Bois Lumière.

    24 Gold Elixir is a honey bomb.

    Nice suggestions so far.

    Comme des Garcons Parfum
    is a very spicy one with a honey component.

    Giorgio Beverly Hills for Men - honey and patchouli, mostly.

    Cartier L'Envol (already listed) is probably the most approachable honey I know of; the honey is offset with dry florals and wood.

    Oh yeah, and Kouros. Spicy incense honey fougere. Massive and classic.

    18.21 Tobacco. I don't get much tobacco. But I get a bunch of honey.

    I endorse this list. And the Hiram Green mentioned is also worth checking out.

    One more: MFK Cologne Pour Le Soir.

    Simple and pleasant honey and benzoin skin scent, really nice.

    Agree with Beige and Slowdive. L’Instant de Guerlain for women has a realistic honey note shared with magnolia.

    Meanwhile in cheapie land there is Kim Kardashian Pure Honey, which doesn’t smell expensive, but does smell like honey.
    My only regrets in life are the people I haven't stood up for,
    and the perfumes I've thrown away.

    1 Million Lucky
    It’s tragic to think that heroic man’s great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.

    Another for L’Envol EDP.

    Escentual had a killer deal on a gift set of this a few days ago. Not sure if still there but may be worth checking..

    Paco Rabanne Pour Homme
    Chanel - Antaeus

    Honey shares the limelight with other notes on my two suggestions. And welcome to the board, hope you find what you're looking for!

    Honey Aoud by Montale as Hednic mentioned and also Honey Oud by Floris. Though they share the same name, they are very different in my opinion!
