I'm sure some of the veterans on here will disagree, but it is a hybrid, in style, of the Histoires de Parfums line combined with some of the high-quality exoticism of the Amouage men's line. One of the most opulent powerhouse male fragrances ever made.

Re balenciaga PH, the incense part is intriguing, but the patchouli is scaring me away.

BTW, anyone can recommend a good fragrance with myrrh and frankincense?

This evening, IUNX Splash Forte. Giacobetti has somehow managed to tune down the cumin on this, which is fortunate as my skin chemistry usually turns cumin into armpits whiffiness.

May I recommend to you pretty much the complete line of Amouage? Each of their scents features frankincense and/or myrrh in some way or the other.

ALL the powerhouse fragrances who's origins are from 1980-1990 have a lot of patchouli in them.

Andy Tauer offers a Discovery Set of 5 samples in a presentation tin for E31, shipped free. You can pick whatever you want in the samples. It's a great way to dip your toe into his range. I'm on my second sample set, and have tried 11 Tauer frags overall now. Since you can't buy Tauer in Australia, this is the best way for me to check them out.
Sounds like the way to go.

Original Vetiver today. I'm not a huge Creed fan (Aventus leaves me cold) but this is one I do like.

Did you buy that bottled or make it yourself?

I prepared it using my own raw materials and wits (just calling it Byredo Seven Veils so everyone has a rough sense of what I did create).

I need more fragrances, I bounce too much between Tobacco Vanille, Tonka Imperiale, and GIT.

Any fresh scent recommendations for the Florida heat, (EDP preferred) that have good longevity?
