    Can we choose more than one or just 1 favorite house? Is Bois 1920 a house or just a frag from seperate house?

    yes sir! we can!! it's cruel to ask any Bner to name one fav house even everso cant name one

    Bois 1920 is a house. however, the very same perfumer has a different perfume house which goes by the name Odori.

    Sorry, but had to choose Creed (don't hurt me). I like three of their scents a lot: Erolfa, Silver Mountain and Millesime Imperial, more than the other houses that I've tried, and they garner a lot of compliments. Also, the rest of their scents are pretty average, in the sense that they are not repulsive (which I find faults with in the other niche houses).

    I went for Serge Lutens... but it's a close one. There are SO many niche houses I love out there ( some of them not on the poll ).

    I own 5 big bottles from L'Artisan and have some backups for a few as well. I have bought 2 Serge Lutens bottles as well. I can see Czech and Speake and Comme des Garcons emptying my wallet pretty easily though.

    I picked two, L'Artisan Parfumeur and Serge Lutens. Between those two, I could probably be set on a wardrobe.

    Well the vote for one is both hard and easy. For those who know Knize -- and we know who they are -- it is the niche-iest house: hard to get, worth the effort, totally distinctive and great, great juice.

    That being said, my distribution is pretty even:
    Knize 2
    Villoresi 2
    Hermes 4
    Lutens 1
    C & S 1
    Creed 3
    MPG 2
    LAP 2
    CdG 3

    These are all great houses.

    creed leads the roost with Guerlain and CDG in the 2nd and 3rd palce respectively. a tie between Serge Lutens and Parfumerie generale ! will be very interesting to see the winner...

    Great topic but tbh i m really surprised with the choices

    MY 3 favorite niche are not even in the poll

    1. Frederic Malle (for me Une Rose, Iris Poudré, Lys Méditeranée, French Lover (9%), CARNAL FLOWER, Vetiver Extraordinaire and Une Fleur de Cassie are all really bottle worthy. 7 frags that i love in one single niche is a pretty awesome score.
    then Montale & Eau d'Italie.

    On the other hand there are some really weird choices that probably won t even have two votes, id est notably Santa Maria or Micallef. Also Mazzorali is pretty much a niche known for one single frag.

    Since my 3 favs are not here i chose Villoresi, Lutens and The diff. company. They all have at least 4 fragrances (Yerbamate, Uomo, Sandalo, Spezie - Chergui, Daim Blond, Sa maj la Rose, Gris Clair - Rose poivrée, Sel de Vetiver, Bois d'Iris, Bergamot) that are bottle worthy for me. No 88 is one of my top 10 ever but i can t pick the niche (C&Z) for one single fragrance. Same goes for Tauer with two frags that i love, LDDM and Incense Rosé . Almost made it to the top, but the other had at least 4 fragrances so i kept these 3.
