    Default is it a UFO?...oh no..it's a POLL!!! "the" fragrance house for you

    Hey Guys...i haven't added obvious ones like Serge Lutens, Creed, l'Artisan into the fold...just some houses which(i feel) have a more modern outlook and are relatively new(ok, some maybe old..)...poll away!

    I voted for Durbano.

    "Jade" is due for release in the months to come.

    I still have some faith in Andy Tauer, am hopeful Amouage may eventually release something that I'll actually like (if the last 18 months is anything to go by) but haven't tried anything by Olivier Durbano (and am naturally intrigued). As for the others, to be completely honest, I really couldn't give a toss...

    I haven't gotten to know any of these houses to really give any good input. By Killian seemed disappointing to me.

    Tauer, though, has interesting sounding perfumes. L'Air du Morocain is the only one I've tried and really found amazing (so far).

    Profumum is an up and down roller-coaster. Some amazing stuff and some not so WOW gimmie a $210 bottle!!

    Damnyou, niche houses.

    Profumum is probably the niche house that "does" it for me the most. Acqua di Sale and Thundra are both just flat-out amazing fragrances for me. Andy Tauer is also high on the list. L'Air du Désert Marocain and Incense Rosé are both incredible, unmatched in what they are by any other house.

    I have been very impressed in what I have tried from Mazzolari, and would definitely seek out and sample their new releases.

    Damn. Andy is Tauering over the competition.

    Voted for Bois 1920 and Profumum.

    Ya! im sure Mr. Tauer would feel great to see the following he has over here and world over...

    vetiver dance did rock my boat big time...i felt it had the sillage of chergui minus the heady, leathery milkniness...vetiver dance has chucked chergui of the list for me. cant wait to try out the legendary LddM, incense rose amongst others...

    apart from Tauer i voted for Frapin, Mazzolari, Profumum & By Kilian...im yet to try most of th houses mentioned in that list...

    M. Micallef is the only one that has yet to receive a vote. I wonder why...

    I didn't vote for Andy Tauer, but he's on my radar. The one that I watch out for is The Different Company. I love every one of their scents to varying degrees, and I have some big faves in the house. Wearing one (Un Parfum des Sens et Bois) right now. This is a niche company with some time, and a track record, yet only 10 published scents. I feel that they only roll out their very best efforts.

    Nice list, Jenson. I think that what ties these together is that they are niche houses that people should get on their radar. I have found the above comments enlightening, and have a couple of new houses in my sights.

    Amouage because they are known for being so over the top and their last Jubilation XXV was soooo good and Lubin, because they're an old house that have a lot of classic rabbits that they can pull out of their hat.

Nasamotto and Amouge just went up the list for me along wit Andy Tauer!

    Default Re: is it a UFO?...oh no..it's a POLL!!! "the" fragrance house for you

    I did vote for PG, but I agree with Sloan on Parfum d'Empire as the house to watch. I am so head-over-heels in love with Aziyade currently, and Ambre Russe is my favorite amber of all time. Forgive the hyperbole, but, apart from Guerlain, this is The House.

    Des Sens Et Bois is beautiful, I tried that for the first time last week and was blown away by it.

    Olivier Durbano from this resurrected 2008 poll.
