    All of these that you listed are pretty "rich", meaning that they have a sweetness and depth to them. Based on what you are listing, may I recommend you trying a sample of Diptyque 34 Boulevard St. Germain, which I think fits in with what your preferences are but it is just a beautiful fragrance and a good deal considering its quality.

    Yeah, I wouldn't blind-buy any of those that you listed. None of those you listed are sure bets on you liking them. Far from it, actually.

    New to the forum so I want to say hello to everyone. I am wearing Terre D'Hermes my go scent for the fall and winter. It feels a little heavier than the other fragrances I own.

    Melbourne Cup day in Oz today so needed something refined and opulent, the great Back to Black has risen to the challenge and takes out the play scent of the day

    Guys, What are your thoughts on:

    1. TOM FORD's BLACK ORCHID

    2. ESCENTRIC MOLECULES

    I enjoy Black Orchid, but it's not everyone's cup of tea. It is a very heavy, dense fragrance that many people read as feminine. It projects like crazy, so you need to apply lightly. Of the Escentric Molecules, I really like Escentric 01, which is lots and lots of Iso-E Super, but also a very bright lime note and pink pepper. It's a real compliment getter. Unlike Black Orchid, it requires a fairly heavy application.

    I've switched into Moss Breches for my eveningtime scent.

    As Osiris mentioned, it is Cup Day here and a cracking sunny day, just gorgeous. I went with L'Humaniste FTW. There were doubts about its staying power among the tipsters but it kept up with the field and ran the race right out to the end.

    Another lovely sunny day here, so for the next sample in my challenge I looked for a citrusy EDC. I turned up a vial of Aspley Purple Water, which I'm really enjoying. Big blast of citrus on application, and I think I'm just picking up a hint of ginger in the dry-down, which I missed the last time I sampled this.

    I like Dries van Noten a lot. I've been surprised at the lukewarm reaction of the online fragrance community.

    Pre-shower: Black Orchid
    SOTD: TV (Tobacco Vanille)

    I think part of the issue is the lack of projection vs its price. It does die down to a skin scent pretty quickly. I have seen a lot of people complain about longevity. Seems to hold up for me.
