SOTE is Dior Homme. It's been quite a while since I've worn this. It is a true classic whose virtues cannot be gainsaid.

Guerlain Vetiver 1986

Idole EDT today. This would be one of the first niche fragrances I went FB on. It's still got everything I liked about it years ago, as well as having one of the most stunning bottle designs around. Love this one.

I wore MPG George Sand today. One of my favorite patchouli scents.

Today I wore Geranium Pour Monsieur.

I am wearing Dree van Newton or whatever it's called. I do enjoy this one quite a bit. I should wear it more than I do.

Got pointed to this thread from another part of the forum. Seems like a lot of you guys really know what you're talking about, hah.

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

Samples - Surrender to chance (I havent personally used) ; The Perfumed court

Tom Ford does a great job with those first few notes you have there. Tobacco Oud; Oud oud; Tuscan Leather

Mandragore Pourpre today. This was a blind buy, but at $10 for a FB I figured why not? It's a bit of a two-faced perfume this; it opens soft and spicy, but goes sweet on my later on, which I think is the heliotrope in the base notes. Not too bad at all, although I'd never pay full price for it.

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.

I wore True Lust Rayon Violet de Ses Yeux today. It is not a fragrance that Markl will want to try.

First scent that comes to mind is Le Labo Patchouli 24. It is reportedly the scent of choice of actor Ryan Reynolds. If you're used to department-store fragrances, you might find this scent weird, off-putting, even gross. Give it a few wears and some time.

For samples, my go-to store is Surrender To Chance. Best service by far of the online samples sellers I have used. They have occasional sales throughout the year.

I forgot about Memoir Man. That is a nice scent.

I really like Patchouli 24, but it in no way is a patchouli fragrance (Le Labo's Iris 39 has more patchouli in it than Patchouli 24!). Of course, what am I saying, it is a patchouli fragrance that is so well made that its facets are connected with other ingredients to a degree where you cannot discern its silhouette. It is, to me, a leather fragrance. And their Cuir 28 is first and foremost a vetiver one, but that's what Le Labo is notorious for - unlike wines, where I have the opinion that, say, a merlot that tastes like a pinot noir, regardless of how good it tastes, is not a good merlot, Le Labo's offerings are excellent if you don't get hung up on their nomenclature.
