Hello! I'm hoping to get some recommendations on chypres that don't have an astringent or soapy harshness to them. I realize it's likely the new standard oakmoss and aldehydes, but for some reason I'm ok with it in fougeres. Modern chypres are incredibly varied and perhaps some don't feel so sharp- do you have any you particularly enjoy that don't wind up smelling like Necco wafers?
A chypre for someone who doesn't like most chypres?
Thank you for the suggestions! I think lately something has clicked in my brain because I've been enjoying some really lovely chypres.
If you don't like Invasion Barbare I think you have no reason to look at cyphree frags, there are loads of options without the need to limit yourself to that category.
