    Daily wear (not consistently):
    Geo F. Trumper's Sandalwood

    Going out:
    Truefitt & Hill 1815 (funnily enough the Issey Miyake Pour Homme I have smells VERY close to this one).

    Interestingly enough, Issey Miyake just redid the bottle for L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme, and it looks pretty nice.

    I used to have like 80 fragrances but I cut down to about 20.

    Marc - Marc Jacobs
    Green Irish Tweed - Creed
    Millesime Imperial - Creed
    M7 Fresh - YSL
    Havana - Aramis (for special occasions ... hot nights... such a sensual frag)

    Can't wait to bring back into rotation this fall/winter:

    Une Rose - Frederic Malle (for cool, rainy days)
    Voleur de Roses - L'Artisan Parfumeur (in rotation with Une Rose)
    Tea for Two - L'Artisan Parfumeur (Sunday afternoon heaven)

    I sold my Himalaya, but am fond of Voleur de Rose. I couldn't justify owning both Green Irish Tweed and BN9 Central Park...

    p.s. I second the recommendation of basenotes. It's a great resource for fragrances, especially the directory which lists many of the notes in fragrances. It also has a good search function that allows you to find fragrances with notes that you like/dislike (for example, you can type in "bergamot" and come up with all fragrances with bergamot).

    Jo Malone - Fig /Cassis (my favorite, but it doesn't last long)
    Jo Malone - Pomegranite Noir

    Bulgari

    Two i'll probably add in the near future as i make my way tord the more custom stuff -

    I'm lurking around Basenotes forum as well. there is much to learn. This list may look radically different this time next year.

    Can anybody suggest some custom or must visit perfume shops I must check out while in NYC?

    I see a lot of YSL but no Opium?

    I took my 10+ bottles of stuff to the outgrown shop as I found that I only wore 1 or 2 consistantly. Someone got a good deal on some cologne!

    Curious about these. Where can they be found or who normally carries them? Do they have a "rosey" scent to them?

    I'm the farthest thing from an expert, but a cool spot in the Village is Aedes De Venustas. I'd go there for my AdP stuff. Nice discreet little shop, very laid back - exquisite gift wrapping (using real flowers) - I've seen several 'celebrities' (didn't know who they were) browsing...

    Thanks. I'll stop in.
