Which House 'knows' your chemistry best?

    Which House 'knows' your chemistry best?

    What I mean is, have you found a house in which nearly every fragrance loves your skin and smells awesome on it?  Is there a house who's line you'd purchase 75% or more of if you could?

    Amouage and Slumberhouse - I own most from both houses, will never hesitate to try and buy from both houses, particularly Slumberhouse...

    I can't speak for my skin, but my nose loves Creed, Heeley, and by Kilian the most.

    Annayake, Cartier, Fendi, Lutens, Parfumerie Generale.

    I would go with Creed. Minus the longevity issues sometimes.

    Mine so far is Keiko Mecheri at the top of the pack, followed by Serge Lutens and then Frapin.

    Another for Creed. Closely followed by Frederic Malle and Tom Ford.

    Very easy for me

    L'Artisan.

    Edit

    Had dinner at a friend's house last night and his girlfriend is a huge fan of L'Artisan. After dinner 4 of us were testing some L'Artisan's scents as she just bought Caligna and Seville a l'aube recently. So we tested the new ones as well as Coeur de Vetiver Sacre, Passage d'Enfer, Fleur de Narcisse, and L'Eau d'Ambre. For some reasons, the scents amplify more and the notes are clearer on my skin than all my friends. It's odd. In addition, many members in the forum are not fond of L'Artisan longevity in general but I have not had any longevity issue.

    YSL and Creed so far

    The closest I think would be Nicolai for me. 

     

    I also love a pretty good proportion of Etat Libre d'Orange, Mona di Orio, Lutens, and Chanel.

    In my case, honestly just too many houses to mention that would fit the criteria.

    Easy - Slumberhouse.

     

    Probably followed by Parfumerie Generale and Diptyque (although I tend to be more fond of their older, stranger stuff).

    I've never understood how (or how much) 'skin chemistry' played into perfumes the way people mention it.



    I always thought it was the polite way of ending a disagreement between two people.

    Person A: this perfume is full of iris.

    Person B: no it's not.

    Person C: guys, it's your skin chemistry.

    Persons A,B & C then proceed to hug it out.

    What I mean is skin chemistry cannot alter the components of a perfume.

    Agree 100%

    Like this: Fragrance ___ smells like crap on me. That way, you aren't insulting the people who like it. As if you are the problem, not the ghastly fragrance.

    Le Labo. I've yet to try one that I don't like on me.

     

    I have as many or more scents from Serge Lutens, Frederic Malle, L'Artisan and Guerlain, but there is only a small fraction of each of those housesclass="
