Very nice Primo! Biggrin

Hard for me to pick one, since the dominant theme of my den is variety...however, I will admit I probably have more Vetiver products than any other single type.  So I agree...Vetiver for me too... Thumbup

I'll have to chime in for Vetiver, as well. My favorite cologne being Encre Noire...inexpensive, dark...massive longevity.
Incense would have to be Lila Nag Champa by Mother's India..very nice blend of vetiver, patchouli and oakmoss.

Admittedly, not a fan of vetiver.  Truly, I neither understand it or what attracts people to it.  To each their own!

But as a category, most almond flavors with the marzipan background.

Though my real love is the Pre de Provence No. 63 scent.  Utterly intoxicating, and defies description for me, other than to say warm, and a bit spicy, and definitely manly.  The performance characteristics of the shave cream are crap, but the aftershave is very good, and the body soap is phenomenal.  

Great topic, cheers!

Too hard to narrow down to one... I'll give you my top 6 in no particular order.  In all honesty I could be happy using just one of these forever.  However, since I've got them all why not mix it up a bit?!?

1- Floris JF
2- Penhaligons Blenheim Bouquet
3- Terre De Hermes
4- Tom Ford Grey Vetiver
5- Acqua Di Parma Blue Fico Di Amalfi
6- Acqua Di Parma Colonia

My favorite all time scent is Pino Silvestre, the scent that isn't being reproduced anywhere else. Woodsy smells are manly smells, you smell like a lumberjack!

Close second is bay rum. If you don't smell like a lumberjack then smell like a pirate Smile

My newest "All Time" favorite is Creed Green Irish Tweed followed by Creed Aventus. I really like Taylor of old bond street Jermyn St and Truefitt and Hill 1805, I have to admit, sometimes its what ever bottle my wife hands me after I shave, lol.
