M7 is the class of that bunch of fragrances, IMO. Definitely appropriate for cooler weather. Bottled and 1 Million will be fine as well, but those are very popular fragrances, which means you're going to smell like a lot of other people. Not sure if that's an important consideration for you. Same for La Nuit, although it's a better fragrance than Bottled or 1 Million IMO.

Sorry, homie, I've only tried La Nuit de l`Homme and didn't really like it.

Odd question!

I enjoy the hell out of fragrances, but I get a bad reaction to quite a lot of them. I'm trying to pinpoint the ingredient and I think it's coumarin? I'm pretty clueless about all of this. The bad reaction is I get this burning sensation in my nose and then get a headache and later feel pretty sick. The quickness with which this happens varies from scent to scent so that leads me to believe it's a specific ingredient. If I walk by an Abercrombie store I'm in actual burning nose pain from whatever miasma billows out their air vents.

I can wear Lush Icon (of all things) and it won't bother me, and thanks to lush's open ingredients list I compared it with a lot of other Lush scents that gave me the bad reaction and noticed that none of the ingredients in Icon have any coumarin or things which contain coumarin (like tarragon). Here's the ingredients of icon: DRF Alcohol , Perfume , Myrrh Resinoid (Commiphora myrrha) , Orange Blossom Absolute (Citrus dulcis) , Bergamot Oil (Citrus bergamia) , Sandalwood Oil (Santalum album) , Mandarin Oil (Citrus nobilis) , *Citral , *Geraniol , *Benzyl Benzoate , *Farnesol , *Limonene

The girlfriend wears Creed Spring Flower and that doesn't bother me either, though she's tried some other scents and they'll trigger the allergy (?)

Is this a common thing? Anyone else have this reaction? If this is a coumarin allergy, does anyone know of some scents with no coumarin or coumarin containing ingredients (cinnamon, lavender, tonka, lemongrass, rose, tagetes, and tarragon)?

^^ I wish I knew the answer to your question. I hope someone will be able to help you.

For this evening I'm back, back in the New York Oud.

For the past hour or so I've been picking up a really unpleasant smell, and I've been unable to figure out what it was. (It's not a familiar unpleasant smell like the food my neighbors prepare or cat poopahs.) Then I remembered that I had put some Maison Francis Kurkdjian Absolue pour le Matin on my left arm earlier in the evening.

Hmm--I like Pour Le Soir, but haven't tried Matin. What kind of stink are we talking?

I'm pretty sure thyme is the culprit. It's not a BO funk, like you get with cumin (and that I actually like quite a lot), or a civety baby's diaper funk. It's just an unpleasant herbal note. (I'm sure I find it more unpleasant than most would. I just did a check of online reviews and I haven't seen anyone describe it the way I do.)

Quick check, why don't you get yourself some tonka beans and smell them? See what will happen. I guess it's possible that you are allergic to some synthetic derivate.

I wore Red Flower Ambrette yesterday. Consistency has changed to some oily gel. Still lasts decently for an all natural and smells interesting.

Glad to hear it; those are all good ones. DHI is my favorite from your list, but I like all of them.

I've never had the fortune of smelling it. I was considering blind-buying a bell jar of it but I don't love perfumes that freaking much.
