    Default Recommendations would be appreciated male

    Hello everyone,

    Recently, I started getting interested in fragrances. I had no idea what I liked so I bought a total of 30 samples based on information from this forum.
    Now I know which fragrances I enjoyed, I hope I could get some recommendations based on this.

    My favourites so far:
    Bel Ami Vetiver (I like this one best)
    Dior Homme (2020)
    Versace Man Eau Fraiche
    Tom Ford Grey Vetiver
    Creed GIT
    Creed MI
    Prada l'homme
    YSL - L'homme

    Thank you!

    Hello and welcome,

    This is a solid list you have there! Based on your likings, I suggest the followings

    If you like Bel Ami Vetiver, maybe try the somewhat similar Vetiver insolent by Miller Harris.
    Other great vetivers:
    Vetyverio by Diptyque
    Terre d'Hermes - Hermes
    Encre noir - Lalique
    Wonderwood - Comme des Garcons

    You might also enjoy"
    L'Air du Desert Marocain - Tauer (a masterpiece) or Au coeur du Desert
    EIGHT & BOB the original
    Prada - Amber pour homme or Infusion
    A bit more daring and different but I think you might enjoy it: Musc Ravageur by Malle
    Pardum Empire - Cuir Ottoman
    Penhaligon - Sartorial or Enymion (very classy)
    Diptyque - Tam Dao
    Mancera - Cedrat boise
    Chanel - Allure homme sport eau extreme or edition blanche

    Welcome!
    Thank you
    Do you mean the ones on the right are better than the ones on the left?
    I see you are from Europe like me, which website would you recommend for ordering samples?

    I recently picked up Guerlain Vetiver. Really great fragrance and can be acquired on the cheap.

    No, I think they are nice scents that might be interesting to try as a kind of follow up/exploration of the theme. Coincidentally I actually like the right ones better, but think I‘m in the minority with both haha.

    In which country are you located? I usually use alzd/fif.
