AJL, sounds like a nice set of fragrances, I actually just tried Eau de Iles today, I like it quite a bit, D'zing is nice too, and LVs are pretty classic, do you go to basenotes at all? LabelKing, Aedes is a nice place, I order things from there from time to time. I have about 50 fragrances, but the ones I use the most often are: Creed: Silver Mountain Water, Green Irish Tweed, Millesime Imperial, Bois de Portugal, Himalaya, Selection Verte Lorenzo Villoresi: Uomo, Yerba Mate YSL: M7 Fresh, M7, Rive Gauche
Indeed, I am a veteran of the basenotes trenches, though I seem to be more obsessed with SF & clothing lately. If you like Eau des Iles (a big fave of 6Cats.--who actually has 7 cats, last I knew), see if you can get a hold of Eau de Navigateur; to my nose it is more subtle & refined, though made by the same fellow--monsieur Jean LaPorte, of MPG & L'Artisan fame. BTW, it is no longer available in the US for some strange reason, but can be had through some European channels. Give 'em smell.
