Gantier's 'Grain de Plaisir' and 'Ambre Precieux' would be on it as would CDG's 'White'. Practically anything by Mark Buxton. I'm more interested in discovering new fragrances than making lists though. Sorry.
Hello again -- not a big fan of Egoiste, I find it a bit crude, but it's miles better than the 'Platinum' version. Rive Gauche is lovely and usually purchase once every two years.
Yes, Baldessarini is a really nice fragrance -- I can't imagine anyone objecting to it really. I am pretty much addicted to fragrances as well, but I really do get a benefit from them -- for instance, yesterday it was pretty hot in London and I was wearing Eau de Guerlain and it just shimmered off of me all day -- really refreshing. Also, if you stay clear of the huge department stores where they are only really interested in selling you something/anything (I'm not blaming them) -- there are some really nice people involved in the industry. The sense of tase and smell is very strong and important in humans so I treat perfumers as creative artists who can bend your mind occasionally.

I don't mind at all, G.M.K. although tastes in perfumes are very subjective -- I mean, you may really like 'Starwalker' by Mont Blanc. You should just go for fragrances that you personally like. I'll try and give you a steer though as and when, if needed.
Thanks G.M.K. -- Glad you like the reviews
Out of the 3 fragrances I prefer Gucci #1 and wore on and off for about a month -- you will have to like the smell of pencil shavings though, as the resemblance is remarkable. Gucci #2, I wasn't keen on --- the violet notes were quite strong and persistent but the wood notes are ok. I actually find it hard to comment on Starwalker as it is so atrocious -- you will literally have a 'wide circle of friends' if you wear this.
