I only use two now (even though I have quite a few).

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.

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).

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...

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!

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