    I though that Terre d'Hermes was aromatic, but it is classified as woody spicy (still struggle with those classifications)

    Equipage Geranium by Hermes? Not as widely spread too (at least in my country) so maybe not the cheapest designer

    L'eau Bleue d'Issey. Very aromatic, pungent, maybe even slightly medicinal, not very sweet to my nose.
    Spray less, love more.

    What kind of aromatic are you looking for? Could you list some key notes or a "vibe" you're looking for? Do you want something retro or very contemporary?

    Inspired by the mentions of Azzaro above, I'll add Azzaro Pour Homme L'Eau (which I personally prefer).
    Spray less, love more.

    I don’t understand.It is so vast that surpasses all understanding.Understanding is always limited.But not understanding can have no boundaries.I feel like I'm much more complete when I don't understand.Not understanding,like I say,is a gift.Not understanding,but not as a simple-minded.The good thing is to be intelligent and not understand.It's a strange blessing, like having craziness without being crazy.It is a meek disinterest,it is a stupid sweetness.

    Aromatic automatically means lavender rich in my head.
    Azzaro PH comes to mind first.
    It's a solid no frills masculine with a little anisic sweetness. It's a grower. Smells "well groomed".

    Pour Monsieur Chanel

    Eau Sauvage Dior

    Uomo Lorenzo Villoresi a niche scent however well worth the sniff.

    Yves St.Laurent Pour Homme

    All excellent. The YSL is scalping asking price, however all these can be found discounted.

    Might also sniff Lanvin L’Homme Sport, which is sort of a budget designer take on the citrus-herbal aromatics of Villoresi Uomo IMO.

    Current Favorites:
    Prada Luna Rossa Carbon, Chanel Platinum Egoiste, Versace The Dreamer, Caron Pour un Homme Sport, Guerlain Vetiver, Missoni Parfum Pour Homme

    Paco Rabanne pour Homme.

    An actual aromatic - herbaceous, citrusy-spicy, etc. In this case, "aromatic fougere".

    Default Re: best aromatic designer fragrance

    If lavender is a decisive factor for a great aromatic designer scent, also adding Azzaro PH l'Eau (and possibly other Azzaro PH summer flankers), Ungaro Man Silver, Lalique Homme EDP to the list

    I guess I'm struggling a little bit on narrowing down 'aromatic', as the suggestions in this thread vary quite a bit/extremely, lol
