Desire Blue

This 2002 scent by, Alfred Dunhill is very nice, and always one of my summer favorites.

This aquatic, amber-like fragrance was inspired by a man's self awareness. The fresh, deep notes of bergamot and orange flower water impart a sparkling dimension while amber crystals, musk, and tonka bean warm and soothe the senses.

Cypriol Nagarmotha

Cypriol is a member of the cyperacae family (papyrus is another member of this plant group) and its roots are distilled to produce a fragrant oil. This oil, also known by the name nagarmotha in India, is used in Indian love potions; a man wishing love, and sex, will anoint his head with the oil. The oil’s scent is described as “woodsy”, “earthy” and “musky.”
Cypriol is found in many Tom Ford scents.
Review From Now Smell This

Cypriol nagarmotha essential oil is utilized in perfumes or bases of the woody, oriental type for a foresty note. Due to its minimal cost, it is also used as a fixative. In aromatherapy cypriol essential oil provides decongestive attributes and is used to treat problematic digestion.
Caution Avoid contact with eyes and mucous membranes. Keep away from children.

Arabian Oud

Mukhalat Gohroob

This is a rich oil with notes of cinnamon, honey, agarwood and black musk. A gorgeous, rich oud scent. I just dabbed a little on my wrist, and this is a super-sweet scent. The drydown is candy-soft and powdery.
