    I love clove. Caron Third Man for nice clove. The new Musc Ravageur has had the cloves stripped out of it, so I'd stay away from that. Bonheur by Bortnikoff is a clove beauty. Costume National Homme is a clove spice frag.
    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.

    When I was at the Le Labo boutique this weekend to smell the new Miami 'exclusive' (Tabac 28) I encountered a wonderful room fragrance that smells like a green, fresh anise note. I fell in love with it. The SA said people buy the Home Fragrance sprays and wear them on skin all the time.

    If you like anise notes you should try it. I can't wait to sample it on skin again. Although, probably a better option would be the candle...

    +1 for Caron Third Man for a phenomenal floral clove.

    For a nice niche clove and anise try Olim by Trudon - has bags of both.

    Possibly also Brut for a cheapie but goodie anise with lavender barbershop fougere.

    Rive Gauche PH in tin can , Azzaro PH ( both a similar vibe and true classics)
    Someone mentioned Kenzoair, which could be worth seeking out if you like subtle and minimalist liquorice and vetiver.

    If you want to go whole-hog for an entire vat of anise and cloves, there's only one answer:

    Jungle L'Elephant

    But it is NOT for the timid.
