    aramis jhl? it has cinnamon too.
    Thanks gwolf, I will sample this fragrance.


    The original Coco from Chanel is somewhat in a style like Opium, except it has more dried fruits to it.
    I think if you like Vetiver, Sycomore is another one to check out.

    Thanks tps16, I have already sampled Coco but didn't like it a lot, Sycomore sounds an interesting fragrance to check out [​IMG].


    Hmmm. I like vetiver but not Opium so it's a toss-up. Here are a few off the beaten path:

    Etro Shaal Nur (vetiver/incense/vanilla)
    Guerlain Habit Rouge
    SL Chergui


    Today I'm wearing Shaal Nur.


    Thanks Thomas [​IMG]! Now I have four good Vetiver suggestions (Grey Vetiver, Encre Noir, Sycomore, & Shaal Nur) to sample.

    I wear Guerlain Vetiver during formal occasions as I find it clean, simple, soothing and agreeable to almost everyone while I wear Opium more casually as I feel it matches quite well with my personality. I wish I could put to words what I like about Opium but I am afraid I may come out considerably off the mark (untrained nose). I am looking for a fragrance that has a similar but better drydown than Opium and would love to hear what fragrance comes to your mind after reading my post.

    Etro Shaal Nur is an incredible vetiver.

    Some other ones to try are Vetiver Extrodinaire, Fat Electrician, and Terre d'Heremes. Was Declaration already mentioned? I'm trying to get a split of Fat Electrician together if you are interested.

    Incognito - Just double checking here, is the opium you wear in a tall navy box with gold circle, and the bottle is tall oval shaped, clear with a navy plastic large cap? (ie Homme) or the original ladies opium dark brown wide bottle with clear glass circle in the middle?

    No problem Master-Classter, I use the original ladies opium dark brown wide bottle with clear glass circle in the middle.

    Today: Kouros cologne sport. Just enough of the original Kouros in the mix to keep it interesting.

    hmm, interesting. I made some rec's (which are still ok) based on the assumption of you owning the PH version. Ok, well you might try some ambers like Lutens Ambre Sultan, or Lauder Youth Dew. Also check out Arami's JHL, Shalimar/Samsara, Donna Karen Black Cashmere, Hermessense Ambre Narguile, Armani Privee Ambre Soie and google around for "florientals". hope that helps today, ELDO Delicious Closet Queen, not my cup of tea. I've got about 70-80ml of juice, someone PM me if you're interested for a good price.
