    Arrow Which is the fragrance house that suits to your taste/preference

    in other words; after all these years in basenotes and 10-500+ bottles in your collection...which is the fragrance house that caters/represents your taste...

    I only have 3 Serge Lutens fragrances in my collection, but I truly love the transgressive, goth-ness of Count Serge and his company's trip aboard the Marrakech Express. It reeks of hash and reads like purple prose.

    Either YSL or Chanel. Even though I only own one of each right now, they offer something for everyone, every situation, and every budget or tastes, both very well-rounded houses IMO.

    What a tough one.. I would have to say Creed, though some folks tend to, in my opinion, lower it to a substandard "midstream" house that sells its products at Costco. Creed has produced a few of the most versatile, high quality fragrances that I feel I can't be without:

    Bois du Portugal
    Green Irish Tweed
    Selection Verte

    But again, such a tough choice.. I have a lot of love for Serge Lutens, Guerlain and Lorenzo Villoresi - of which I have several that are gorgeous.

    Czech & Speake.

    I seem to"get" their fragrances more and more as time goes by. No matter what the mood or occasion, I can tap into that rich creative seam and find something that just fits.For me, discovering and enjoying this fragrance house has been a revelation.

    Easy question for me. I don't like fresh and clean fragrances and prefer those that complement my natural woody-spicy-earthy-with-a-touch-of-honey scent. Orientals are my preference and Serge Lutens makes my favorites.

    Annick Goutal. I like just about every fragrance AG I've sampled (exceptions are the Orientalistes series), and they tend to smell both austere and exotic at the same time, which I thought was not possible. Eau de Monsieur is a long time favorite of mine.

    Hermes would be a very close second for me - Equipage and Bel Ami are both in my top ten list of all time favorites.

    Ultimately Creed: when they're good, they're easy-to-wear, well-made, high-quality fragrances and the variety is unmatched. From Vintage Tabarome to Virgin Island Water there's a scent for every occasion. Villoresi is probaly second and La Via del Profumo is moving up the ladder quickly.

    It's hard to pick only one.

    Montale, Creed, Guerlain probably tie.

    Etat Libre d'Orange, Freddy Malle & Serge for me. Although I wouldn't cry if all I could wear was Chanel.
