    Default Just for fun...the SixCats! NON Niche challenge!

    Hi all,

    Ah, rumor has it that a VIP Perfumer Inspector is soon to come over to your place to inspect/rate your collection of NON-Niche fragrances. So, NO expensive (say over fifty dollars a bottle) fragrances such as CREED, MPG, LV, MONTALE, SMN, SERGE LUTENS, DIPTYQUE, etc. allowed. Only NIB bottles. This time, size does not matter as long as it's at the fifty dollar price point. OK then, what reasonably priced THREE fragrances would be included in your collection ? What are the THREE fragrances that's shows you are a "Man of the World" and have good taste ? What reasonably priced fragrance shows you are a class act ? What fragrances show you have UNIQUE taste ? Sure, this is just for fun, but I'm truly going to give this some thought!

    As of tonight, my THREE choices would be :

    Guerlain HERITAGE
    YSL KOUROS
    L'eau D'Issey (Blue)

    Regards,
    SixCats!

    All, I think, at least as good as their fragrance family counterparts done by niche houses. It's an interesting question, and puts the niche thing in useful perspective. I'd be happy as a clam wearing mostly non-niche stuff.

    $50 still gives quite a bit of wiggle room. Make it $30, to make it really challenging! :-)

    Online discounters have many for under 50 (ok... maybe testers... but they are still less than $50! )

    For example:
