    Default Looking for a new niche fresh fragrance.

    Would love some opinions on something I need to sample. Something in the genre of Creed Himalaya, Platinum Egoiste, but more depth. Any ideas? I love this community. Hope you all have a great day!

    I just got a bottle of Percival by Parfums de Marly. There's definitely a Platinum Egoiste vibe, but juicy and metallic and strong/long-lasting.

    L'Eau D'Issey Pour Homme is similar with more boldness. If you can find the Summer 2009 flanker that's also good.

    Tried Orto Parisi's Megamare some days ago. Very, very special. Like a highly refined but impressively strong niche version of Dylan Blue. It's one of a kind. Surely a sample first.

    +1 for all of those. I'm certainly not a Creed fanboy, but you might be looking for what is basically their specialty. While we're at it, I might as well add Silver Mountain Water.

    If you can't find these locally, LuckyScent is great for cheap samples.

    Hey,

    There was another thread talking about my suggestion. Creed - Pure White Cologne. A central Pear fruit note surrounded by White Musk and White Florals. There is a a hint of water in the scent. Like one would smell from a nearby stream. Incredible scent. Although when I wear it I have to carry a travel sprayer to re-apply the scent due to it not lasting more than 3 hours on my skin. It's expensive so I choose not to wear it often but when I do I indulge.
    Currently wearing: Bois du Portugal by Creed
