    Ulrich Lang Nightscape revolves around an ethereal camphoraceous patchouli. Terrific stuff, highly recommended

    Mostly all of Bogue’s fragrances have a big camphor like note in them

    Hey all,

    I was not able to find a sample of Archives 69. So, if anyone wants to privately send me a tiny vial as a sample, I would appreciate.

    I am going to buy Heeley - Espirit du Tigre. It was my finalist for what was recommended on here.

    I also found a surprise item from my favorite shaving-company brand called "Grove" (by Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements). They brought it out of retirement as a 'seasonal' Christmas scent. On the website it said there is a camphorous aspect to it, so I figured I would order a sample since it's so cheap. I am blown away by this obscure one. It's one of Phoenix's best scents IMO. It's got a camphor aspect as it describes, but it's also got a really amazing Black Currant note that reminds me of Enchanted Forest Vagabond Prince, but BETTER. I have 'tried' to like two Black Currant-based fragrances (L'Ombre dans L'Eau and Vagabond Prince) that smell nice initially on paper but then are just 'missing' something. Well, I just found what that scent was missing in 'Grove'. The camphor note and......cranberry! What? Yeah. I wouldn't have thought it. Well it's also got a touch of apricot supposedly. This combo is, IMO, pretty special and this is now a 3rd Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements scent that I'm recommending (the other two are Atomic Age Bay Rum and Sangre de Drago). I'm pretty decisive on Grove being better than L'Ombre dans L'Eau and Vagabond Prince. So, I pulled the trigger on the shaving set and matching EDP. What's odd is I don't really consider this a "Christmas scent". It smells like a Spring scent IMO. It's as if someone took D.S. & Durga – Bowmakers and then added the Black Currant, Cranberry and touch of Apricot.

    I still want to try Archives 69, so any help on that would be appreciated.

You could try a dabber sample from Lucky Scent if you wanted to check it out.
    My experiences as well. Camphor seems like the main accord in Siberian Summer.

    I have the sample and when comparing to the 6 other samples I didn't find Siberian Summer to have a camphoric base.

    Here are my thoughts on the scents I have samples of:

    My top-3 camphor-centered finds so far:

    1. Heeley – Espirit du Tigre (a camphorous mint scent)
    2. Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements - Grove
    3. D.S. & Durga – Bowmakers (smells like Grove but without the fruity aspect)


    I had a tough time picking from these 3 scents and ultimately chose both Espirit du Tigre and Grove.

    Here are the ones I ‘passed’ on that I think Grove beats out:
    Serge LutensSerge Noir (Would have been in up there with the other 3 but it has some kind of ‘sneaky’ onion-like note in it that takes several seconds to detect. I kept thinking maybe I got onion on my fingers earlier or something but after revisiting it several times I get that some ‘odd’ onion’esque note. If not for that note it would be a fine, fine scent.)
    Serge Lutens – Tubereuse Criminelle (I kind of like it but I just don’t think the floral note meshes with a camphor as a pair of notes in the center of presentation. The duet just seems wrong but I think someone, somewhere would appreciate it.)
    Tiziana Terenzi – Laudano Nero (It’s okay, but has a poorly blended resin and lacks depth.)
    Comme des Garcons – Monocle Hinoke (A simple green-minty scent that honestly seems like it’s leaning exclusively on the quality of the ingredients, not on any great perfuming ideas. Smells clean and green, but with high end ingredients.)
    Areej le Dore – Siberian Summer (Masculine oakmoss, leather, fern type scent. It’s nice but the camphor influence is extremely minor, almost not even there and I’m looking for a camphor-central scent).

    Maybe that's the cumin you're smelling? I love SN and I really don't like the smell of onions...never detected that in it. Many people dislike SN simply because of the cumin.

    Oh it's spelled "Noire"
