    Uhm, how many can we vote for?? I mean, I just voted for one, but it seems so cruel to my other loves.
    Please, spritz responsibly.

    I would say, vote for up to 5.
    I don't think that one could have more than 5 favourite Ellena scents
    From the other hand, if someone loves them all, I don't think that it could influence the result in bad way!
    But I haven't put a limit for votes anyway, so everyone feel free to decide yourself

    I voted for L'Eau d'Hiver, Bois d'Iris and the Hermessence Series. I would have voted for Bois Farine as well, if it was an option.

    I voted for the Hermessences, Eau d'Hiver and Divine Bergamot, but would also have voted for Bois Farine--one of my very faves! Haven't yet smelled Terre d'Hermes, sadly.

    My favorite is Colonia Assoluta by Acqua di Parma, but since that wasn't a choice in this poll, I voted for the Divine Bergamote

    I like First in parfum concentration, but find it's a bit temperamental on me sometimes, so I haven't worn it in quite awhile. While I don't own it, I find his Un Jardin sur le Nil to be quite interesting. I own a decant of Ambre Narguile and while it smells quite yummy on my husband, on me I get the dreaded "Raid" note.
    Scent is such a lovely, simple pleasure!

    Ambre Extrême is my favourite but I love all his scents for Frédéric Malle and Bois d'Iris and Rose Poivrée for The Different Company.

    Of the ones I have tried, L'Eau d'Hiver and Eau Parfumée. Did he make L'Eau d'Ambre as well? I like that one.

    Throw in Divine Bergamot and we are a complete match!

    I love the silk gossamer transparency and deceptive simplicity of Ellena's compositions. The height of elegance.

    Smelled Terre d'Hermès last week in Palm Beach. Thought it was elegant, refreshing, modern, out-doorsy -- thoroughly delightful. Spritzed myself to experience all day. Took a sample home to continue trying in various moods on various days to see what my lingering impression is. So far very good and a nice balance to the rest of the line which needed some fresh and envigorating choices before Ellena.

    Well, I had to choose 20 scents, so I took those listed in our directory and made by only Ellena(no partnership) . It might be a good idea to update some information, if it is missing, like with Bois Farine.

    Had to go with Bois d'Iris from The Different Company. My #2 would be Osmanthus from TDC.

    Hear, Hear!

    I recently raided a perfume counter to sniff more main stream men's scents. I was so impressed by Déclaration, which my husband has worn for years. It was both disctinctive and more satisfying than maybe all the others I treied that day -- the Chanels, Armanis, Calvin Kleins, D & G, Boucheron, Ralph Laurens, etc.

    Bulgari Thé Vert is so very beautiful and exhillarating. Loved it from day one. Nab vast quatitites of the bath and body products whenever I stay at a Four Seasons Hotel where it is their standard amenity. The shampoo and shower gel, quite faithful to the edt, were my late mother-in-law's favorites and I would keep her in stock. Makes me miss her.

    Bois d'Iris is one of my standby scents -- whatever the weather, whatever the situation, it is always right.

    Coincidentally, I only smelled VC & A First last week for the first time since I wore it myself in the 80's as a high schooler. It was being worn by my stepson's 21 year old girlfriend who is a lovely, intelligent and tasteful lady who was spending her spring break with us all. It was a wonderful fragrance on her, even in the heat of the Bahamas and Florida. Thank you for reminding me that First is an Ellena composition.

    The poll is cruelly unfair. I do not think Ellena has created anything I have not responded to enthusiastically.

    Eay d'Hiver is my favourite, please bear in mind that I havent had the opportunity to smell them all.
    It's Unisex and is really nice, dry and flowery. Subtle, enjoyable.

    I voted for L'Eau d'Hiver, Rose Poivree, In Love Again and Bois d'Iris. I loved First when it came out, but I have to say that the love has died. Still a great scent, but no longer for me.
