    Amouage for me this last few months, altho that's probably to do with the fact that (a) the full line just got released here (at a very reasonable price compared to what I see for US market) and I have been indulging and (b) I'm probably now at the Amouage vector point on the TS (and ruggles?) arc of perfume discovery.

    Honourable mention to MPG, Villoresi and Guerlain.

    I can't choose one... Many of these houses are excellent and deserve to be "best"!

    The reason why i left out Guerlain is - as observed in previous polls, it wins by a huge margin so does Creed i tried to shortlist Fragrance houses which release deeper & heavier scents*...well ofcourse, TDC doesnt fit this criteria entirely but, what the heck

    * i dont mean Guerlain and Chanel dont release heavier scents..just that they are too popular and would overshadow their peers.

    I love my Dior's Most of their scents are wonderful and lovely.

    @mr_reasonable: where are the Amouage line sold currently in Aus? I'm from Sydney and would love to get my hands on some!

    True, Guerlain & Chanel are more mainstream compared to the other smaller niche players. Maybe consider a poll of niche/ artisanal houses with less than 20-25 scents to their name. My vote went to Histoires de Parfums.

    Of the ones listed, I picked MPG, simply because the ratio of scents I like is probably the best amongst houses that have such a large portfolio.

    From this list I think it'd be Tauer, d'Empire and Lutens being close seconds.
    Tauer just gives me more right now, on my incense spree.

    Creed and Chanel missing from this list kills its credibility imo.

    Pish, no Diptyque?
    Going off my wardrobe, the only houses I own multiple scents of are Diptyque, Hermès and Ava Luxe. Neither of which appears in your poll. *Sad face*
    From the listed, I'll have to go with Lutens, but honestly, I don't know most of the houses intimately enough to cast a truly informed vote.
    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    Dear OP, I think people are missing the point of your poll. Perhaps you could have added the words "limited to the houses listed here..."

    Otherwise, it's painfully obvious that mainstream houses like Guerlain, Chanel and Creed would win every single time...and the complainers know that damn well and want to vote for Creed anyway.

    Tauer from this list, but it's a toss up between Guerlain and Chanel for me as well.

    I'll go with Bois 1920 from this list and will wait for Oslo-Fjord to chip in with vote number 2. (Creed is my all time favourite though).

    What are these options meant to represent, deluxe, niche, or ...my favorite house?
    I am afraid I'll have to pass on this one (and wish AfraAfra was back...)

    My favorite house is Caron. I've connected with more of theirs than any other house.

    I admit I haven't tried anything from the majority of houses on your list, Jenson, but from there I'd have to pick Lutens, bcs Borneo 1834 is sooooo yummy!
