Are you a fan of the Kilian line in general?

I like Cruel Intentions quite a bit. My other favorites from the line are Rose Oud (probably my favorite), Back in Black, and Amber Oud. I like Love and Tears as well. But I'm not a big fan of Straight to Heaven, Liaisons Dangereuses, or the two Asian Tales scents.

ive only tried the cruel intentions, taste of heaven, and back in black. Rose Oud sounds incredible....im a huge fan of anything with Oud. Taste of heaven wore really well on me.

I've been wearing lumiere noire lately. Works very well with my skin. At first, I wasn't a huge fan because it was out of my comfort zone, but I'm so glad I did. When my bottle runs out, I will try to branch out a little more.

The only one I know is Van Cleef & Arpels. It's a good scent - soapy, slightly animalistic fougere in the style of Jules or Trussardi Uomo or several others in that vein. I happen to like that style but you don't need to have more than one or two in the genre to be covered.

My sense is that the most wearable, least offensive of these are the TF and the Creed. Bel Ami is very big and loud, and Rien is extremely bitter.
Kolnisch Juchten is also a lot of fun to wear; I didn't mention it above just because it's very rare.

Thanks, L'Incandescent. I've tried Bel Ami—and I remember I liked it-—but I don't remember a very prominent leather accord. I'll make sure to sample it again. I also remember trying Tuscan Leather at the Bloomingale's TF counter, and I thought it was ok, but not very memorable. Both Rien and Kolnisch Juchten sound interesting; it may be time for more decants...

I got a little sample of MP&Gs Cuir Fetiche last week. It's less floral than CdR; I feel it could be in the same register as current Knize Ten (if I could compare them directly.) I just love the richness and complexity of the Cuir de Russie parfum, but the drydown gets a little too floral for my tastes. I'll keep looking...

I think you might consider revisiting Knize Ten. I haven't heard anything about it being changed over the years.

I'm not sure if Cuir Mauresque has made it into the Serge Lutens export line, but that another good leather scent that reminds me of Ten. Etro Gomma is another.

Never tried Yojhi home. The Caron may be my favorite licorice scent--the licorice & verbena play off of each other in a way that always pleasantly surprises me.

On the subject of leathers, I always recommend Dawn Spencer Hurwitz's Cuir et Champignon.

Thanks for the reply Baron. I will try out a sample of Van Cleef & Arpels Pour Homme first instead of going for a blind buy.

P.S. - I read your top ten fragrance list posted a while back and really like your choices. I would like to know what are your current favorites.
post #13046 of 20279
I'm not sure I could properly do a top ten list these days. My interests tend to drift around a lot. I would say that Nicolai New York is pretty much always on my list of favorites. Coming out of summer, I'm also partial to Declaration and Vintage Guerlain Vetiver EDC. Going into fall, I'm looking forward to wearing Azzaro PH, Dyptique Essence of John Galliano (no Nazi), Musk Kublai Khan, Idole de Lubin, Knize Ten, Shalimar Parfum, Yatagan...
post #13047 of 20279
Actually, all this talk of leathers got me thinking about Knize Ten, which I'm about to run out of. I realize that I should just go to the Scentbar and sample all thier leather scents side by side. I don't often buy full bottles at retail, but I could justify a splurge on a favorite leather for winter. Oud Cuir Arabie or Cuir Ottoman or Lone Star Memories could possibly nose out Knize for a place in my wardrobe

Good heavens. The last time I ran out of a scent (without decanting away a large portion of it) was, I think, 1997.

I was speaking of my decant, which lasted me a few years. I've actually never used up a bottle of anything.
