    Default No idea what kind of can of worms my brother has opened

    My brother has been into fine perfume for a bit and is getting me started. Just ordered my first four decant samples along with a gift of Zafar by Xerjoff.
    Will be getting:
    Amouage; Esprit (for my girlfriend)
    Creed; Aventus
    Frederic Malle; The Night
    Frederic Malle; French Lover
    I'll keep you posted on my progress in my new "hobby"
    Super Stoked for this

    Welcome to you chriseye72! Enjoy your time here at Basenotes! Nice way to start your fragrance journey.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Welcome!

    At least, considering the iconic stylishness, complexity and consistent quality of the fragrance you discovered and started out with, one of the more pleasant, instructive and enjoyable ways to open, not so much a can of worms, as much a gateway to a fascinating, always interesting and surprising hobby.

    Can’t wait to see your thoughts on The Night. As another newcomer to this hobby, I found that to be a strangely pleasing scent. I have one spray on a card that I still take out a week after getting it and check how it smells now. Keeps changing! I’ve been REALLY enjoying other Ouds by Areej le Dore, Bortnikoff, Ensar Oud and Abdes Salaam Attars. There are so many great corridors to disappear down into, when it comes to the basenotes members and their fascinations: Vintage, Attar, Niche, avant- garde, splits, lists, loves, hates!

    Thanks all, I feel really welcomed into this new community. I'm somewhat of a hippie and wore patchouli for a long time. Any suggestions on a modern twist to my long time ago signature fragrance?

    There's a gang of solid patchouli frags to choose from. Here's a few I dig:

    Tom Ford - Patchouli Absolu
    Fred Malle - Monsieur.
    Ulrich Lang - Nightscape
    "I drank what?" -Socrates
