    Default Recc Me A Fall/Date Scent Based On Weird Preferences

    Hey Everyone!

    Thank you for all your help thus far in my fragrance journey -- I've tried lots of the standard recommended fragrances at this point, and I'm addicted.

    I consider Encre Noire Sport my signature fragrance for most of the year-- I'm looking for a warmer compliment to that. I liked Encre Noire a'la extreme, but the incense and heaviness starts to get to met after awhile. I noticed the same effect in CdG Black, which i loved the smokiness of, but the incense of it started to give me a headache to the point where I can't even enjoy it anymore.

    I tried lots of the more regularly recommended accessible Fall fragrances, but nothing has fit exactly perfectly so far.

    I hate powdery smells, cloying floral-y stuff like iris, and anything too overbearing or heavy.

    I like "darker", musky/dirty, boozy, natural-smoky fragrances. Some sweetness or gourmand-ness without being over the top is good too. I dig certain darker tea/dirty jasmine stuff too.

    To sum it up-- think a mid-late-20's, masculine, alternative, black jeans and a warm flannel shirt, cozy, fall fragrance. Preferably accessible and not too limited edition.

    Thank you for your time!

    Azzaro Pour Homme Intense sounds like it'd be right up your alley.

    Black Tourmaline by Olivier Durbano perhaps.

    Bulgari Eau parfumee au the noir would have been great, woody, dark, just slightly sweet, and not too strong. But I think it has been discontinued. The bottega veneta or the costume national things for men gravitate towards darkish but smooth, slightly woody and leathery, so perhaps you can check into those as well.

    Mona di Orio Vanille would be a nice choice.

    Christian Dior Eau Sauvage Parfum 2017
    Christian Dior Eau Sauvage Parfum 2012- darker take but still a good alternative.

    Lalique Ombré Noir - worth a try and sample.
