    Default Fragrance Recommendation

    I'm looking for a fragrance recommendation to wear this winter. Would love to wear to Christmas parties and other social events this winter. My favorite fragrance is Jubilation XXV, and enjoy GIT, Aventus, Oud Wood, LADDM and Tobacco Vanille as well. Open to your suggestions. Thank you in advance.

    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.

    Parfums de Marly Oajan

    Honey, Cinnamon, Vanilla... can't go wrong with that one!

    Are you looking for something fresh, or warm/spicy? I'd suggest these on the warmer side -

    Enigma pour Homme
    Epic Man
    Pure Havane
    Chergui
    Ambre Narguile
    Patchouli 24
    Musc Ravageur

    Thank you for the recommendations. I quite like Burberry London and am intrigued by L'Ombre Des Hommes. Do you have a recommendation on where I can purchase L'Ombre Des Hommes?

    I do tend to like Bertrand Duchaufour's creations, but have never smelled Traversée du Bosphore. I will definitely look into it. Thank you.

    Histoires des Parfums Ambre 114
    Annick Goutal Ambre Fetiche
    Bentley For Men Intense
    Paco Rabanne 1 Million Prive - very much in the vein of Oajan but with more myrrh and pipe tobacco. Cheaper and, to me, better (I've owned both)
    Dior Ambre Nuit, Fahrenheit le Parfum and Hypnotic Poison EDP (perfectly unisex)

    Loved that scent when I wore it before

    I also saw recs for Egoiste, I tried to see what Egoiste and Chanel Allure Homme were about but could not grasp it. Just did not get me like they have described it

    So, two that I just sampled were ELDO Rein Intense Incense, hard to find, and Histories de Parfum 1740 Marquis de Sade. The 1740 has leather, and I usually abhor leather, but Wife loved it on me and I loved it so I have a bottle of it on the way
