    Default What NEXT? Suggestions desired!

    Now up to 40 fragrances, you can see in my wardrobe. I'm looking for my next purchases already. I'm thinking a singular purchase but something more of the niche world, unique and special. - What should I be saving for next?

    What's mind blowing with beastly performance in the sub $300/100ml range?

    Perhaps something from Montale like Black Aoud Intense or Attar

    Maybe look at some Guerlains like:

    Guerlain Homme EDP
    Derby
    Arsene Lupin Dandy
    Habit Rouge L'Eau

    Also Hermès Hermèssence line and The Different Company may be good places to look.

    I see no Lalique's in your wardrobe!
    Lalique Homme - deliciously beautiful and well above average in performance
    Lalique - Hommage a l'Homme - unique - subtler in performance than above - but suited to its content
    Lalique White - A 'different' spring summer freshy - well above average in performance
    EN and flankers
    Alll seem to well crafted and balanced, smell ace with good performance.

    You could get all of these and have change from $300!

    For beastly performance at that price, look for something from the house of Amouage or Maison Francis Kurkdjian. You can get some Xerjoffs on the grey market at that price which usually have good performance.

    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.

    I think I'd like to try an Amouage fragrance. Which one should I buy as my first purchase of these 3 mentioned?

    Jubilation
    Interlude
    Reflection

    Blind buy but I can't imagine being let down by either.

    Seconding Jubilation. That's a good price.

    Thank you all for the awesome recommendations! My bottle of Jubilation appeared today. A bottle of Cedrat Boise is on the way.


    Feel free to keep the suggestions flowing.

    How are you enjoying Jubilation? I think you need a Tom Ford Private Blend in your life. Try Tuscan Leather and/or Tobacco Oud. But, all of them are worth trying if you get the chance.

    I think you should dip your toes into Imaginary Authors...very long-lasting stuff. Super affordable but some of the scents are challenging. I would suggest (since it's summer and all)
    -Sundrunk
    -Every Storm A Serenade
    -Saint Julep
    -Mosiac
    Current Rotation
    *Mont Blanc Explorer
    *Polo Ultra Blue
    *Mancera Cedrat Boise
    *Parfums de Marly Pegasus
    *Mancera Wild Fruits
    *Dior Sauvage edT
    *Chanel Allure Homme Sport eau extreme

    Was at Nordstrom recently looking and sampling the private blends, I'll have to do that again.

    While it's mid summer here in California it's a nice cooler afternoon and I'd just given a few sprays. My nose isn't as well trained as others to perceive notes but there's somthing familiar about the opening I can't place it. A few minutes in and it's mellowed nicely. My wife says it's strong and very manly....so it's a win in my book
