    Probably in the minority here, given the usual Creed posts, but whilst the other houses all have their virtues (although I am unfamiliar with Goutal's frags) it's Creed for me.

    As long as I have GIT, Bois du Portugal and Green Valley in my wardrobe, I'm a happy man.

    May I play too, gentlemen? I'll have to go off the list, though. My favorites are Juliette has a Gun, Ava Luxe, and Sonoma Scent Studio (although would the latter two be considered artisanal instead of niche?).

    If I must stick to the list, I guess Lutens.

    The niche world is so large, I can't even pretend to say I've sampled it to completion. Of what I've tried so far, Serge Lutens followed narrowly by Frederic Malle followed narrowly by Parfumerie Generale.

    lol, nobody like Bond
    NEW STUFF FOR SALE - TOM FORD, Guerlain, Acqua Di Parma, Serge Lutens, Byredo, Diptyque, etc. .

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    Annick Goutal, no question. However, I'm not crazy about their Les Orientalistes trio.

    Creed would be second on my list, but is it really a niche firm? I've never really thought of them as such because their products are so accessible.

    And Mona di Orio, probably a very strong second contender for me too.

    I voted for Serge Lutens, but if 2 choices were available I would have cast the other for L'Artisan (from your list). Agree with props for Malle and Nicolai, and have also enjoyed quite a few Miller Harris creations.

    I voted L'Artisan, although I would have picked The Different Company or Malle over L'Artisan.

    It's Malle all the way for me, followed by maybe Diptyque. I got to sample the whole line the other day, but my stupid conference prevented me from returning to the shop and making a purchase as I intended.

    Sticking to the list, I'd probably go with Creed or CdG.

    Lutens by quite a huge margin. I am slowly getting into Parfumerie Generale and Parfum d'Empire, but I'm not certain if they could replace Lutens for style preferred.

    Default Re: Poll: Your favorite niche house

    None of the above. I would vote for MPG or Parfums d'Empire.

    I voted for Serge Lutens. Next would be Parfumerie Generale, Frederic Malle, then Amoauge, then Penhaligons, then Creed, then The Different Company. In that order.

    Strictly from this list: Creed- although overrated and over-hyped, still, always a source of some hidden gems

    Not on this poll: Knize, Penhaligons, Hugh Parsons, Rance 1795, ADP

    Serge Lutens is by far the best. Parfum d`Empire is second and Montale comes third.

    And is CdG a niche house?? If so, then it is definitely worth to mention.

    From this list, Lutens.

    However, tauer and Parfum d'empire are a notch above that IMO.

    I voted L'Artisan here. There seem to be more that just fit me well. I find Serge Lutens interesting, but there are only a few I would buy.

    Lately I am really into Annick Goutal. As for Les Orientalistes, I love Encens Flamboyant. I bought 15 ml minis of the other three and am giving them a go.
