    I don't have an answer to your question, but just out of curiosity, how did you pick that group of houses? Just wondering. Thanks.

    just mainstream fragrance houses...actually i am blowing so much money on buying fragrances..everyday i add a few to my wish list...i have quite a few from YSL....but then when i set my mind on a certain fragrance from a certain house...i like another one from the same house...i thought maybe i should give it a try by buying the no. 1 from each house...this way i would have diversity in my collection....as of now my collection is hugely lop sided....Ysl & Jacques bogart...

    hope that answers your question

    I was very torn in replying this question as the focus was on "what's the finest of the house for you" while the temptation was to reply according to "what's the most representative of the house style". So I had to really focus on the true purpose of this thread.

    ..Givenchy => Gentleman

    ..Rochas => Lui

    Well Gups, I like to point out the different criterion in chosing the juices... for example if we refer to Givenchy for example, probably imho the Givenchy juice most representative of original Monsieur Hubert style is for sure Monsieur de Givenchy. Another thought that came to mi mind is that, being the discussion on the male board I mainly focused on masculine scents. Again the choice could change if we let the door open to feminine juices too (for example it could be Ysatis so...).
    So the list could change dramatically, being maybe a juice from a house their "finest juice" but not at all so in line with the house style. Hope to have explained it in an understandable way...
