    Hello everyone, Zhang Fan here with another question! I am wondering which of these you like best. I like classic perfumes, especially such as powdery, iris, vanilla, white floral, musky, and so on. Maybe in total I will choose two. Thank you!

    Chanel No. 19 Poudre
    Dior Hypnotic Poison
    Frederic Malle L'eau d'Hiver
    Gucci No. 1
    Histoires de Parfums 1725
    Histoires de Parfums 1889
    Houbigant Iris des Champs
    Jean Patou 1000 edt
    Lorenzo Villoresi Teint de Neige
    Nicolai Patchouli Intense
    Serge Lutens Fille en Aiguilles

    There's quite a few great choices, many of these modern releases.

    If you to select one Gucci No 1 would be a great starting point.

    I have a strong soft spot for 1725 and 1899 which are both my favourites of that brand. Both gentlemen classic with a clear niche twist.

    Teint de Neige is a good choice if you want a straightforward and clean laundry like powdery fragrance (powdery to the max, my gf sprayed the sample empty every evening on bed sheets)
    Serge Luten's Filles en Aiguilles is a great fragrance, but does not really match you description of what you seek here as it is rather spicy and incensy.
    Do not know the others

    1725 is a classic fougere. I like also Patchouli intense and Jeux de peau (Jeux de peau is very gourmand, though).

    If Gucci No. 1 is referring to the initial 1976 vintage version of Gucci Pour Homme, it is excellent.
    Basenotes sales: TDC de Bachmakov, Atelier Vetiver Fatal, Tiffany for Men mini, 17 Cuba Paris frags, L'Essence de Cerruti, Reyane Insurrection, numerous popular SAMPLES! http://www.basenotes.net/threads/472...ples-amp-More!

    Of your list Chanel No.19 and Patou 1000.

    That said, I’d suggest you try the various version of No.19 first (EDT, EDP, Parfum, Poudré EDP). I personally find EDP to be the most beautiful, but opted for EDT because easier to wear for me. Parfum and Poudré are great too, but really ultra feminine.

    As for Patou 1000, I’ve heard that the vintage is really worth chasing. Warning! This one too leans quite feminine.

    The others on your list are forgettable, in comparison of these two.

    Gucci No 1. - if you are referring to the version from the 2000s is great - when I want to feel like a lumberjack and feel okay. Woodiest scent I ever came across.

    Lorenzo Villoresi Teint de Neige - pretty good, but I bought it for my wife.

    Oh, I love Hypnotic Poison and actually wore it out many times

    Teint de Neige is also fab but I bought for my partner -- just too fem for me

    1725 is a nice 'go to'

    Thank you! For Gucci No. 1, I am talking about Guy Robert's perfume for women. Maybe my name is not correct. Here is a link:

    I decided to choose 1000. I found a good price for this! If it was not so low, maybe I would choose 1725. I want that one very much!
