    Default What scent am I missing?

    hey guys,
    I've been collecting for a little while now and thought I'd ask the group what is missing from my full bottle collection. For reference, I'm mid 20's and living in a city with four full seasons.

    Collection is as follows:

    Creed: Aventus (vintage and new batches), GIT (vintage & new), VIW, Original Vetiver, Silver Mountain Water, Millesime Imperial, Royal Oud
    Amouage Reflection
    Dior Fahrenheit
    Dior Homme
    YSL La Nuit De L'Homme
    YSL Rive Gauche pour Homme
    TF Grey Vetiver EDP
    MFK Baccarat Rouge EDP
    TF Tuscan Leather
    Mancera Cedrat Boise

    Thanks!!

    You have a nice little setup! I would try some Chanel’s.. I would recommend Sycomore or Coromandel

    Honestly, I'd love to get one of those but I had decants of the EDT versions and I just can't see myself adding the EDP versions. They just don't hit the spot for me the same way.

    Hoping one day I can find an EDT bottle

    Excellent Selection, you did well with your purchases.

    There are a ton of other great options but here are a few I think would fit in well.

    TF Neroli Portifino or Maybe Penhaligons Castille
    Penhaligons Sartorial
    Penhaligons Endymion
    Roja Enigma Pour Homme

    I would suggest:
    Chanel Egoiste
    Chanel Pour Monsieur
    Bulgari Black
    Le Must de Cartier pour homme
    Acqua di Parma Oud Concentree
    Tom Ford Fougere Platine
    Eau de Guerlain
    New York Intense (Parfums Nicolai)
    Bigarade Concentree (Frederic Malle)

    With the caveat that, yes you should definitely try these first!

    The reason I enjoy fragrances, something is always knocking on your door, the journey should never end!

    Otherwise the above mentions are fantastic, I'll add some Gucci fragrances, PH II especially

    Very nice and varied collection! You have most areas covered. So perhaps something more edgy or avantgarde, so to speak, eg CDG 2 man or similar.

    An oud or incense prominent scent perhaps?

    Hmm,

    Creed - Vetiver Geranium (Give off a champagne-like vibe. There is a type of bubbly crispness in the scent that I love.)

    Costume National Homme (It smells like happiness to me. It's such a mood lifting scent.)

    And you seriously need to try out Acqua di Parma's Blu Mediterraneo line of scents. There are some real gems in that lineup. One of them is very likely to speak to you. They are refreshing and have a kind of vitality.

    I plan on eventually buying Tauer - L'air du Desert Marocain. It's very different from everything else and....I have to admit it's very, very good. Worth adding IMO.

    These would be good choices

    I'd add Chanel Pour Monsieur, Givenchy Gentleman, Hermes Bel Ami, Moschino Pour Homme,

    I would buy:

    Chanel Pour Monsieur
    Guerlain Habit Rouge EDP (it has to be EDP because it has excellent OUD in it)
    Un Jardin Sur Le Nil (you need a fruit and mango is good for you)
    Encre Noire
    Givenchy Gentleman (if possible the old bottle. Patchouli is good for you)
    Azzaro
    Acqua di Parma Cologne (the best cologne in the world)

    P.S. If you need Incense, and you have cash, buy Cardinal OR Avignon. Cardinal is less radical than Avignon. If you don't have cash, buy Zirh Ikon.

    P.S.2 : If you need a flower, why shouldn'y you buy a good rose? I adore L'Ombre Dans L'Eau .

    Great start - now go explore the ladies section. You're missing out on so many great scents sticking to just men's.

    Already an outstanding selection, yet still taking the liberty to add Knzie Ten Golden Edition, Chergui and/or Ambre Sultan by Lutens, Jaipur Homme EDP, Songe d'un Bois d'Ete by Guerlain, Yatagan by Caron to a possible (re) testing list

    You definitely need a good rose, so might as well start with the best (IMO, obviously), Portrait of a Lady.
    Current Top Ten:
    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage (Giorgio Beverly Hills) - tie
    2) Giorgio V.I.P. for Men (Giorgio Beverly Hills) - tie
    4) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    5)
    Anat Fritz and its reissue, called Classical (Anat Fritz)
    6) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    7) Javanese Patchouli (Zegna) - tie
    7) Monsieur de Givenchy vintage (Givenchy) - tie
    7) Polo vintage (Ralph Lauren) - tie
    7) Jasmin Antique (Rogue) - tie

    Sometimes you gotta just explore on your own, find out on your own what you can maybe find , you seem to be following a pretty well traveled path.
