    I probably have the most fragrances from YSL.

    I have not found one L'Artisan that has "floated my boat".

    I have the most luck with Hermes. I have the worst luck with Chanel.

    The only one that really doesn't work for me is Hugo Boss: all the scents turn out to be clashing and chemical.
    The thers do pretty all at least for a juice, and many do well since my skin seems to work well with the majority of notes.

    No house is completely hit-or-miss for me.

    Guerlain has been a string of misses for me, excepting their vetiver which IMHO absolves the rest of their line-up.

    Every other house has their stinkers and keepers.

    for me there are no slam dunks when it comes at a certain house and ALL of their offerings, but for the ones that don't work for me, one must be Tous, that house has nothing to offer IMHO.
