    Perfumers all have some kind of style and consistency in their creations and I would like to explore them. If you have not noticed, here are some examples:

    Jean Claude Ellena with his green tea accord which he recycles in every other creation. He uses this raw material called hedione to create transparency.

    Francis Kurkdjian has his way with orange flower and musks.

    Sophia Grosjman which has her violet, rose accord as a DNA in most if not all of her fragrances.

    Maurice Roucel with his magnolia.

    Sheldrake and Bourdon took their Femininité du Bois accord and sprinkled it in their other creations in the Serge Lutens line as well as other mainstream creations in Bourdon's case.

    Guerlain embraces its "Guerlinade" accord.

    And so on.

    Are there any other patterns or signatures that I might have overlooked?

    There's the Creed Millesime ambergris/sandalwood/musk base;
    don't know whether this is present in all of his frags but Montale seems to use a patchouli/amber/sandalwood accord often.
    Looking to swap/buy/receive for free () the following samples/decants:
    Indult Tihota & Rêve en Cuir
    Chant d'Aromes extrait
    Vetiver pour Elle (5ml decant)


    Selling/swapping:
    Versace The Dreamer 50ml (1.7oz) BNIB

    You already covered all the perumers I can think of. SHeldrake, Creed, Ellena and Guerlain.
    Jacques Cavallier and his use of calone?

    Alberto Morillas and Maurice Roucel have been know to add a note of awesome to some of their fragrances . Same with the fragrances Tom Ford directs.
    Some of the armanis (code, mania, white, etc...) have a note of repetiteve-and-not-so-awesome. I am not sure what it is.

    CB has a signature of antiperfumes I guess...

    Echoing & expanding the last comment about CB. Yes, I have tried several and his scents all have what seems to me to be a common chord: sweet, synthetic, translucent but persistent.

    The RL Polo fragrances (at least the mens) all seem to have that pine-accord in varying strengths and textures.

    I can't identify the elements of it very well, but the Le Labo stuff definitely has a 'house note'.
