    Default What´s Your Favourite New Fragrance ?

    It can be male or female, released within the past 12 months.

    Well......this one came out about a year and a half ago, but Dirty English is the only recent bottle worthy scent I have found for myself.

    My current favorite, Kenzo Power (2008).

    I'm rather enamoured with my sample of parfum d'empire Ambre Russe. Can't say if it'll last the distance, but 'tis truly gorgeous and a contender for current fave.

    Edit: Oops. Just realised you meant newly released, not new to me. That'll teach me to go on the title without reading the post properly!
    Sorry, haven't got a fave from the past year. Nothing's grabbed me yet.

    I smelt that recently, thought it was a close copycat of Vetiver 46, can you compare them?

    I think they might be similar maybe, but I have smelled Dirty English and Comme des Gracons Man 2 on my friend, and on his skin, I think the second is a much closer match.

    I was very impressed by Grey Vetiver and bought a bottle shortly after its release. In the long run, though, it may end up being Fille en Aiguilles, which I really liked but haven't purchased yet.

    The Buxton line impressed me as a whole, Chanel Allure Edition Blanche is more than decent, too, though I dont think its under 12 months old.

    I haven't tried many new frags this year, but Tauer's Une Rose Chyprée is the best I've tried and really quite delightful in a retro way.

    I have a sample of vetiver 46 and really like it, but I don't think that 46 and Dirty English are very similar.

    I'm not certain I'd use the word 'favourite'.

    For calendar 2009 so far - Davidoff Adventure Amazonia; and on the other side of the shop, Prada L'Eau Ambree.

    I just sampled the new CdG Daphne and it's one of the greatest works of perfumery I've smelled in a modern fragrance.

    Both Guerlain Oriental Brulent and Chypre Fatale (Oct. 08 release) are pretty good. The new ELDO Fat Electrician impresses me a lot, and even though I've only sampled it, the Tom Ford Urban Musk impressed me a lot.

    From the designer world, Polo Modern Reserve was a highlight of fall '08 and this spring the new Hermes Kelly Caleche EdP (as opposed to the EdT, which has been around for a while) is pretty fantastic.

    Any votes for Fahrenheit Absolute or Azzaro ph Elixer? Been a lot of buzz about these on the forums but they haven't made it state side yet.

    Well, since it has to be within the past 12 months, I'd say Zirh Ikon, which is surprisingly better than many others that I was really looking forward to from "real" perfume houses. I guess $$$ doesn't always determine the enjoyability of a fragrance (not that I ever really thought it did).

    I am thrilled by Tom Ford's Grey Vetiver, but the fragrance itself is not thrilling. It is the perfect antithesis to a pungent vetiver such Creed's and Etro's. It is very wearable under all circumstance.

    I have not gotten the opportunity to sample Pure Malt and need to search it out before it is long gone.

    Geranium Pour Monsieur by D. Ropion & Frederic Malle and Epic Woman by Amouage are my two favourite 2009 releases. I would like to try Jil Sander 79 and the new Nicolai Patchouli.

    The other major favourite that I can't pin a date on is Mazzolari Lui.

  31. #31

    Amouage Epic Man gets the honor. A take no prisoners, long lasting, spicy incense. If I get it on my outwear, I can smell it forever.

    Jil Sander Scent 79 Man, hands down
    Next is Divine L`Etre Aime Homme.

    Fahrenheit Absolute and Idylle Guerlain are going to be huge commercial successes, but they are not nesessary for me.

    The only one I have that probably meets the criteria of newly released is Lalique White (2008). Not fantastic, but above average for sure. I have not tried many new releases to begin with.

    After the responses I've gotten... Tom Ford's Grey Vetiver. Walked past somebody this morning, they chased me down to ask me what it was. Said it was faint, yet distinguished enough to warrant asking.

    There's a lot of recent releases I love. My favourites would have to be A*Men Pure Coffee, the new DKNY Men, Kenzo Power, Versace Pour Homme, and Victoria's Secret Vertical. I don't know exactly when scents release, so I just took out my 5 star fragrances from 2008 and 2009.

    This summer Frederic Malle Geranium Pour Monsieur was my new favorite but weather is getting cooler now. It got better each time I wore it. Great in warm weather!

    In the last month though I found Serge Lutens Fille en Aiguilles to be my new favorite - what a great piney incense fragrance.

    You can't go wrong with either of these.

    Same here. Like many others I was pretty lukewarm on the original L'Homme but the La Nuit interpretation has really impressed me. I was very pleasantly surprised after the middling reviews I had read.

    Of the recent (2009) releases I've tried, my favorites so far have been Manoumalia, Felanilla, Wazamba, the re-release of Ubar, and Geranium pour Monsieur. Going back to 2008, I'd include Homage, Azzaro Couture, Cuir Pleine Fleur, Magnolia Romana, Majestic, Scent 79 for Men, Sycomore, Iris de Nuit, Onda, Sel Marin, and Rubj. Hmm. Looks like '08 was a better year for me...
