Would anyone recommend philosykos by diptyque for summer? Tam Dao is a bit too spicy for warmer months

If you're after a fig based fragrance, i'd recommend ADP - Fico di Amalfi from their blue med line.
it's a blinder

Did you try any of the recommendations, Dee? Any other suggestions not necessarily on the incense tip?

anyone else on these new 19-69 fragrances? i´ve been committed to santal 33 since launch but london stinks of it now and it´s made it to reykjavík now too so time for a change. I´ve never bought a cologne without smelling first but impulsively went for chinese tobacco. https://nineteen-sixtynine.com/product/chinese-tobacco-eau-de-parfum/

The descriptions are like something from the J Peterman catalogue

I didn't, went for Maaps which were ok, probably get around to trying the others, Fornasetti Otto look interesting. For room frags picked up a nice bottle of Dr Vranjes Ambre for the bedroom but now moved it to the lounge (reminds me of Musc Ravageur/Lab 18 ) and a bottle of True Grace English Garden.

Other than Aventus, what Creed smellies are worth a squirt?

For men most are, depending on what you like. I like Bois du Portugal, but it's really mature. I also really like Viking but it's super overpriced. Many people like Green Irish Tweed.

Not looking for anything in particular. Was gonna get some samples, so wanted to narrow it down to a few options - Green Irish Tweed and Royal Oud were both on the radar so will defo grab those. Cheers for the suggestions Cool

Agreed - my current daily is Kilian Straight to Heaven - which is worth checking out.
