    Default What's your one "unsung hero"/"sleeper" fragrance?

    What would you consider your one fragrance in your wardrobe that hardly gets talked about here on basenotes, but you love?

    For me it has to be Creed's Royal Delight. I don't remember seeing too many discussions about it here but it never fails to get a compliment any time I wear it. It's also probably the longest lasting Creed I have next to BdP. Great scent ... my number 1 sleeper.

    (A close second would have to be Damien Bash's "Sin". Smells similar to Australian Gold's tanning lotion)

    What about yours ?

    It used to get a lot of press on the old Yahoo board but I rarely see any mention of it anymore:

    Casran - Chopard

    Definitely a fave.

    L'Occitane Lavande. It smells so complex when it's only made from alcohol, water and lavender oil!

    Great question. I love frags that are little discussed but I think are wonderful.

    There are more, but for now, I'd say Open by R & G, Iceberg Twice and Caron PH. And Worth PH.

    I like Tempore (Laura Biagiotti) quite a lot - it is absolutely a "normal" scent but never discussed here......

    Actually it was my signature scent for a while.

    I live pretty close to a Colgate production/factory and often there is a smell of something very close to Tempore in the air.

    I know it and I like it a lot. Smells to me exactly like orange flavored Pez tastes - agree?

    Guerlain Heritage.

    I got it in a swap and love it each time I wear it. I got some nice compliments on it.

    I see it mostly on people's swap lists but don't see it discussed very often here.

    Gucci Rush - many people dislike it but I think it's excellent.

    I rarely see Guerlain Derby discussed, perhaps because it's so hard to find. It's well worth the search.

    I think Floris's Cefiro is under-appreciated. A fairly lasting citrus-and-green scent. I think it's a true fougère.

    Less of an unsung hero, perhaps, and more of a guilty pleasure for me is HUGO by Hugo Boss. I've never actually owned it or lived with it, so I might have an incomplete idea of it, but it strikes me as having a streamlined, easy-going quality not unlike Lanvin L'Homme. Cleaner and more wearable than most of the Boss output, though a little on the sweet side, as I recall. It doesn't get much respect here, I think, partly because it came out when marines were a big thing (though it isn't precisely a marine scent) and it may have been too mass-market to really qualify as a sleeper.

    Romance Silver.

    This one's gotta be my most complimented fragrance of the year so far and it's not even in my top 10. I'm not crazy about it, but it seems that everytime that i wear it out, someone compliments me on it, maybe the scent i'm smelling on myself and the scent that others smell a few feet away are totally different.
    Current top 5:
    1. Puredistance M
    2. Yosh Sombre Negra
    3. Amouage Fate Man
    4. Parfums de Marly Galloway
    5. Naomi Goodsir Bois d'Ascese
