When I asked Essenza-Nobile why they didn't sell SL-samples they said that SL doesn't want samples to be sold. So they sent me free samples (ironically no industry samples but self-decanted ones). So maybe you can order some Malle's over there and ask them for some SLs.

Straight up, all we need now is some spammer in here selling estrogen pills.

To all your experts out there, I'm looking for a couple of colognes to mostly wear to work (with occasional social situations) that's mature , confident and subtle.  I don't like anything that smells of tobacco, and my budget is $120 for a 100ml EDT.

 

I've been reading this and other threads, and here are the ones I'm considering.

- CHANEL POUR MONSIEUR
- CHANEL ANTAEUS POUR HOMME
- ROCABAR HERMES Men
 

Not sure which one will be work appropriate.

 

Thanks.

I think Chanel pour Monsieur is a great choice in any case. Have you actually tried the ones you've come up with in person?

I've gotta run soon, so I'll give you a more detailed response in a bit. But for now, I'd suggest that Antaeus is probably not the way to go, as it is not very subtle. You cannot go wrong with Chanel Pour Monsieur. You might also want to check out New York by Parfums de Nicolai.

+1, NY by PdN is great too.

But what I'm going to do is just give a list of fragrances that have gotten lots of positive attention, both here and in other parts of the online fragrance community. (My list focuses on relatively recent stuff. I have no doubt that I will forget some that I should have included.)
L'Air du Desert Marocain--Tauer
Noir de Noir--Tom Ford
Portrait of a Lady--Frederic Malle
Invasion Barbare--MDCI
Tobacco Vanille--Tom Ford
L'Homme Sage--Divine
A*Men Pure Malt--Thierry Mugler
A*Men Pure Havane--Thierry Mugler
Terre d'Hermes--Hermes
Puredistance M
Dzing!--L'Artisan Parfumeur
Al Oudh--L'Artisan Parfumeur
Rose 31--Le Labo
Oud 27--Le Labo
Aventus--Creed
Sycomore--Chanel
Bois des Iles--Chanel
Coromandel--Chanel
Muscs Koublai Khan--Serge Lutens
Chergui--Serge Lutens
34 Boulevard Saint Germain--Diptyque
Hope that's helpful.
For me, pre-shower is Ambre Mirabilis by Keiko Mecheri. (On the whole, I found her Bespoke Series disappointing, but this is one of the better ones. I like the scents from her regular line more.)
SOTD: Bijou Romantique by Etat Libre d'Orange

Thanks, L'Inc. I haven't tried some of these, so this is definitely helpful (to me)—

Not yet, that will be my next question, where can I find any of these in store?  There is a Neiman Marcus nearby, so I'm thinking of going over to try what they have this weekend.  Any other physical stores you recommend?

 

Thanks.

Sounds good.  Looking forward to the more detailed response.

Thanks.

For the Chanel Pour Monsieur, there is the original and the Concentree version. The original is much more subtle and refined (even though I love the Concentree) and may be more appropriate for you. HOWEVER, the original is being phased out of the U.S.

I just tried the brand new Hermes Jour d'Hermes (because HORNS is awesome, basically.) This is an extraordinarily beautiful, delicate, sweet floral. I think the flowers are well blended, so I'm not sure I'm picking out the individual flowers correctly, but I think I'm getting freesia and some white flowers. Very feminine and very demure, pretty much the essence of Hermes in a bottle.

Eau Noire today, ahhh, I love this one. The caramel funk of immortelle mixed with the aromatic, almost minty astringency of lavender. They shouldn't go together so well but they do. It strikes me that this could pass for a modern reinterpretation of Pour Un Homme.
post #13935 of 21239
Damn, that arrived quickly!

Today: Montale Aoud Cuir d'Arabie - I love this hard-core scent.
