    Default First Niche perfume...what's yours?

    Frederic Malle's Noir Epice
    Kilian's Cruel Intentions
    Nasomatto's Duro

    Anyone like Noir Epice? I have got a travet set that I don't mind letting go to a fellow Epice Noir lover.

    Decants of Creed Green Irish Tweed, Creed Himalaya, and Ineke Derring-Do. I Really like Derring-Do. I like (but don't love) GIT and Himalaya).

    My first FB niche purchase was probably Anvers by Ulrich Lang, try it!

    Anvers is indeed very good. It's very masculine and refreshing at the same time, without being soapy. It's definitely something for an older guy however. As in, not a teenager.

    First would be Tea for Two that I got for free in a trade. There were only 2-3mls left. I think the first bottle I bought new was SL Diam Blond, but I ended up exchanging it for Chergui.

    My first niche perfume purchase happened yesterday. Ambre Russe by Parfum d'Empire. And it is not even my SotD...

    I got Encre Noire one month ago but does it qualify as niche?

    Long before I really got into the hobby like I am now (I still had 10+ bottles, but I didn't really know how much was out there and hadn't quite jumped off the cliff of fragrance sanity yet), I bought a bottle of Silver Mountain Water by Creed (around '03 I think) from fragrancenet and at the time, it was a huge purchase for me, even at a discount. That and Lolita Lempicka for Men were my two favorites for a couple years. Since then... well, I guess I like perfume.

    I haven't purchased a FB niche yet because I'm still in the middle of testing. However, the very first one I've ever smelled was Acqua di Parma Blu Mediterraneo Fico di Amafi. When I first wore it, I kept thinking it was coconut-ey because it felt milky and somewhat sweet. This was a few months after I joined BN. I revisited it again a month ago and realized, "Um, that's just a really silky soft fig note." after I looked at the pyramid and reviews. I did have a couple carded L'Artisan samples, but I didn't recognize them, so I gave them away when I sold some bottles back when I was an uber newbie. Whoops! >_< Speaking of fig notes, one of the samples was Premier Figuier.

    My very first just a few weeks ago, Tom Ford's Black Orchid and Creed's Tabarome Millesime as I bought them blind at the same time. However, they came recommended by a person who I trust her taste;-} Now, I am looking to add a few more:-}

    Mine were AG Eau D'Hadrien and Eau de Charlotte ten years ago and both mistakes, but Annick Goutal was then the only niche brand available in my country. Because of those two for a long time I thought that everything niche is overhyped...

    Would L'Occtaine's Eau Des Baux be considered niche? If so, that would be mine.

    I still have yet to pull the trigger on a full bottle of a niche fragrance, but I have gone through a few sample vials of Bond No. 9's Bleecker St. I think I might as well go ahead and get one - I love that stuff.

    I've had a few sample vials of the "usual" Creed fragrances (GIT, Aventus, MI, Original Vetiver), but have yet to really have one click with me. I did get a sample vial of their new Vetiver Geranium, and I am digging that more than any of the others so far. Nice, "stingy" vetiver that kind of reminds me of a toned-down Encre Noire, mixed in with some really nice florals and a hint of citrus. Good stuff!

    Good choice. Easiest niche for me to recommend to someone. Classic, fresh, and soooo versatile. Hard to dislike it. Probably one of the only scents I'd ever suggest for a blind buy.
