    Although they are way too expensive for me, I would have to say Frederic Malle. Never encountered one I hated plus it smells of high quality to me.

    For me it would most definitely be Creed. Not only because they have some wonderful frags, but because the lineup is vast and diverse. I could easily give up all other houses, and have something from Creed to choose for a variety of settings - casual, sporty, dressy, formal, office settings, and the list goes on.

    In using an automobile analogy, I would say it's not necessarily the Rolls of scent (maybe Amouage or Clive?), but certainly Benz, due to a good combo of quality and quanitity.

    I find I have favorite fragrances, and favorite types of fragrances, but not a favorite or "best" house.

    Many houses hold favorites for me, many houses also hold fragrances that are huge disappointments.

    too many to mention and, after all, I believe the concept of "the best" is a bit silly. There are great fragrances everywhere, as well as awful ones...

    I would say Le Labo is my fave, except, they really piss me off with the overpriced city exclusive , elitist crap,
    Amouage is numero uno in my book.

    I like Armani because they make great fragrances that are manly, yet are not 80s powerhouses.

    Second place = Lalique

    What a great diversity of opinion!
    I will just say as far as designers go it's YSL and Guerlain at the top and Dior and Chanel just behind (for me)

    Oops, I have to put Givenchy on the second place podium too.

    7 years later. I still favor Creed, but I can't believe I picked Boss and Polo. I'd take YSL for the designer house now.

    Ralph Lauren. Polo (Fall, winter), Blue (spring, summer), Black (spring, summer), Sport (summer, fall), Purple Label (Romantic), Silver (casual), Romance (clean), Safari (accountant), a very good mix as well.

    It would be between Thierry Mugler and YSL
    In all honesty, I would go with YSL. TM seems like a big time gourmand house, whereas YSL seems to be very diverse.

    How you can say that Baudelaire is winner over Tolstoy, or Picasso demolished Renoir in a Champion Match by penalties?
    Yes, everyone could be a fan of some Team, or Fragrance House... But now I`m doing my best to remain eyes (and nostrils ) widespread and open to every good fragrance - no matter who did it...

    Houses released so many frags, with guidance of different art-directors and noses, they`ve got good and not-so-good scents, masterpieces and populars; they have trendsetters and nothing-to-say-about-ho-hums...

    So - I do not know my answer to this question!
    Fair enough

    Still, some houses are more consistent than others in putting out truly well made fragrances.

    My vote for Guerlain, it is on a league of its own. Hard to beat masterpieces like Apres l'Ondee or Shalimar.
    And runner up is Hermes: I find their releases very... consistent. Having a in house nose is probably a winning point, and Ellena is a true artist.
