    Default Looking for a Great Winter Fragrance ASAP

    Hello all! Not as knowledgeable as a lot of you, Iíve only been in the fragrance community less than a year. Personally I canít smell (or taste) very well at all, most days itís kinda like I have a cold, but I consider a good quality fragrance an ESSENTIAL. Iím looking for a quality winter fragrance for day to day ASAP. Iím going crazy as Iím almost out of my usual go-to Dior Sauvage. Since my sense of snell isnít great Iím pretty non-discriminating. Lately the ONLY fragrance I absolutely did not like was Aqua Di Parma Essenza. Very let down by that. Almost thought bout grabbing some Armani Aqua Di Gio just to get me through the holiday season cause itís readily available @ most stores & usually is a killer with the ladies. But cmon I think I can do a little better then that one. Have my sights on Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb ExtrÍme... the Night Vision also. Iíll probably have to blind buy which is why I came to this forum as Iím not ordinarily around a Nordstrom or anywhere to get something good. Any thoughts on the Viktor & Rolf fragrances? Later when I have a little extra Iíd like to explore a Creed fragrance or By Kilian but now just need something quick, I hate not having a cologne 😂

    Spicebomb and Spicebomb Extreme are both very nice. Haven't tried the Night Vision flanker so can't comment

    Bulgari Man in Black and MIB Orient are nice and readily available as is Laiique Encre Noir.

    Harder to get but super cheap is L'erbolario Meharees, blind bought a bottle from Amazon a couple of weeks ago and really like it. Smells like it should cost 4 or 5 times what it does.

    Niche there is PG Coze 02, Frapin's Speakeasy, Phaedon's Tabac Rouge

    Looks like, based on what you're used to, any of the V&R scents you mentioned could be a good bet. I don't recommend blind buys but those should suit your needs. Better than Sauvage and Acqua Di Gio anyway, lol, but that's not saying much.

    I would recommend Pure Malt.

    If you like classic scents, Chanel Egoiste is a good choice.

    I'll add Guerlain Spiritueuse Double Vanille, it's a much better vanilla scent. It's a bit more pricey but it's a well made scent.

    +1 for Eau de Baux - very classy, inexpensive and readily found.
