    Arrow your Holy Grail('s) - from curent collection

    It's almost cruel to ask any Bner to name, One! it's simply impossible! (another definition of Holy grail could be that one would purchase these scents again or already have and still rejoicing )

    mine would be the following...

    Serge Lutens: Ambre Sultan & Cedre
    Different Company: Rose Poivree & Bois d'Iris
    Profumum: Fumidus, Thundra & Olibanum
    Mazzolari: Lui
    Parfumerie Generale: Querelle
    Patricia de Nicolai: New York
    Creed: Silver Mountain Water
    Lorenzo Villoresi: Uomo & Incensi
    Aramis: Havana reserva
    Ungaro: I&II


    one other that i foresee in near future is, Tauer's masterpiece, L'Air desert morocain (i recently tried it again, this time, a spray. It's just amazing...)

    For me all my perfumes are Holy Grail ('s)
    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    My Best of the Best:
    Indult Tihota
    Neil Morris October
    Mitsouko EdP (I own a large sample and it trumps the EdT big time--still haven't gotten the pure perfume )
    Frederic Male Noir Epices
    POTL Luctor et Emergo (and who knew? I used to HATE this!)
    Hermessence Ambre Narguile and Osmanthe Yunnan
    Bulgari Green Tea-Extreme
    Flowerbomb

    And of course this list will grow and change the longer I ponder the question, but that's a pretty decent collection of fragrances that I would really prefer not to live without.

    I have a few from my bottles, and a few more from my decant collection.

    Bottles:
    PG Cuir d'Iris
    Guerlain Cologne du 68 and Quand Vien La Pluie
    Chanel Coromandel and Pour Monsieur (original)
    Dior Homme and Dior Diorama (the ultimate fresh floral chypre)
    Prada No.3 Cuir Ambre

    A few more from my decants:
    Guerlain Cuir Beluga, Spirituesse Double Vanille (the ultimate vanilla, IMO)
    Auguste Esprit de Cuir (the ultimate leather, IMO)
    Profumum Dulcis et Fundo
    Chanel Bois des Iles

    There's probably a few more....

    I think ,right now, if there is a fire in the house and I have to jump into the flames to rescue only one fragrance it will be..... BdP .
    .... and while I am trying to scape the flames, smoke and chaos I will try to quickly grab GIT risking my life.
    After the fire is over I will look through the ashes for Guerlain Vetiver, Yatagan, Havana, XS and Knize Ten.
    The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.

    There is no way I can explain how I feel when I wear Orris. It affects me very strongly. I hope to always have it in my wardrobe.

    I agree about Orris. It has a very round, human sort of presence--not very helpful if you haven't smelled it--that I haven't encountered in anything else that I can think of. A full bottle went on the sale page here within the last few months and I was really tempted.

    I don't really believe in the idea of a single holy grail. I prefer polygamy. So here are my current favorites in my little "harlem"...

    Parfumerie Generale: Cuir d'Iris, Aomassai, L'ombre Fauve, Felanilla, L'oiseau de Nuit
    Guerlain: Spiritueuse Double Vanille
    Parfum d'Empire: Cuir Ottoman, Ambre Russe
    Serge Lutens: Gris Clair (yes, just one)
    Hermessence: Vetiver Tonka

    Almost there, but not quite:
    Dior Bois d'Argent
    Idole de Lubin
    Hermessence Ambre Narguile

    May make it on other's list, but not mine:
    Tauer LDDM

    Serge Lutens Serge Noire

    Holy Grail as a beauty, or as a scent for yourself to wear? I found it rather feminine all along, but maybe my nose is wrong.

    It doesn't smell feminine to me. My Wife always comments on the ones that she feels are too feminine for me to wear to work. My workplace is all male and my Wife comments that "You may not want to wear that to work, it's a little to feminine" She doesn't think Homage smells too feminine on me.

    Okay, nice to see a Holy Grail Man
    Anyhow, I would like to know then, if you know Lyric Man, do you find it not feminine? I'm on the fence with it. I would name it happily my Holy Grail, but sometimes I find the rose in it too strong.

    Santal Noble (vintage), Eau des Iles, Eau d'Hermes, Yerbamate, L'Air du Desert Marocain, Iris Silver Mist, Vetiver Extraordinaire, No. 88 (vintage) and Eau Lente for being simply so impressive fragrances.

    Racine, Villoresi's Uomo and Cologne du 68 for combining wearability with substance.

    There are many others for sure. Made the list quite fast.

    Second Orris by Tauer, it really is amazing. Besides that Hinoki by CdG, Gaiac 10 by Le Labo, Reve en Cuir by Indult, and everything in my wardrobe by Serge Lutens - except for Arabie. I would say something is my "Holy Grail" if I could stand smelling it 24/7 and also brings me into a 'euphoric' mood. Moss Breeches is almost HG and smells fabulous on clothes the day after, but is headache inducing.

    I enjoy Lyric Man and to my nose is very masculine. Homage is more towards feminine than Lyric. If Lyric is too feminine to your nose, then Homage will be too feminine for you, for sure.

    there are a handful of scents in my collection which TRULY qualify as holy grail material....

    1. Helmut Lang Cuiron (still the most beautiful leather scent i've ever tried)
    2. Knize Ten (still the most dramatic, theatrical leather scent ever made)
    3. Helmut Lang Eau De Parfum (hands down the finest musk scent i've ever tried)
    4. Kiton Black (possibly the most underrated fragrance...just perfectly balanced and glorious)
    5. Paco Rabanne (70s italian macho glory....unrivalled masculinity, imo)
    6. SMN Nostalgia (amazing twists and turns from top to basenotes. smells like a vintage race car? I AM IN!)

    Holy Grails?

    I had a discussion recently about this and they would have to be:

    Habit Rouge,
    Heritage,
    Vetiver
    Hammam Bouquet
    Castile

    As I have said before, I do not have holy grails. I believe many use it as an equivalent for favorite, but that is a rather incorrect interpretation.

    Anywhoo, my favorites:
    Domenico Caraceni.
    Rive Gauche.
    Shameless Plug: Sales thread with Roses Musk, Rose Poivree, and others.
    Looking for lot of samples of female fragrances.

    Bvlgari Aqua
    Joop! Nightflight
    Tom Ford - For Men
    Larrikin for Men

    I like most of the rest of what I own, but any of these 4 will almost always do for whatever occasion I want. I just wish the Tom Ford lasted longer
    Looking for: Andy Tauer - L'air du Desert Morocain & Incense Extreme

    Not serious. I am cool with whatever people want to call their favorite scents (I am seriously thinking about calling them my holy molies). But traditionally, Holy Grail is something really hard to get or even unattainable. It represents a hard quest, a finding that ends all crusades. If you live is USA and you have a decent salary, AdG is not a Holy Grail, no matter how much you like it. Heck you can get it at any drugstore. A 1988 bottle of GIT signed by Creed himself? That is a HG!
