Can you guys recommend me a cologne that has notes of leather, wood, smoke, tobacco, patchouli... something along those lines.
Also, a reliable trustworthy website from which I can order samples of the recs? Thanks1
The first thing that popped into my mind was Guerlain's Derby
- it has just about everything you are asking for, but not so much the smoke.
I also highly, highly recommend you try Amouage's Memoir Man
, it also has just about everything you are looking for, and this one, to me, is a classic just like Derby
. Both of them are stunning fragrances, and I am not using hyperbole. Memoir
is more recent, while Derby
is a creation from the 1980s, so you might have an aversion to Derby
at first because you make an association with the "powerhouse" masculines of that decade. But give it time because it is truly an ageless fragrance.
There's others I can recommend, but I think you should start there.
For samples, I've used Surrender to Chance quite often over the past two years and also recommend Luckyscent. I think Surrender to Chance is the better way to go because you can get a variety of sizes while choosing a sprayer as well. I really dislike those samples with the little plastic stick to apply with.Edited by HORNS - 2/18/16 at 3:49pm
