    Jean Kerleo, Olivia Giacobetti and Chris Sheldrake. I don't think Sheldrake gets the credit he deserves.

    I second for RUMBA terrible! but all the other creations of Jean Claude Elena- the scavendger of odors, as he calls himself- attract me magically: everything of the HERMESSENCES,all the Jardins of HERMES,TERRE d' HERMES and my "husband" parfume Elixir des Merveilles, plus YSL "In love again", two fantastic summers of...I dont remember, I was young...In the contrary ,I dislike Polge's creations(Allure...)

    I like Sheldrake too, although the Datur Noir was so new and different for me and compelling that I had to have it, but now that I have owned it for a year, it's not so magnificent as it was in the little sample vial. I love Andy Taur's creations, some of them .

    I just smelled Lolita Lampicka a few days ago. It attracted me at first sniff, and I mentally added it to The Acquisition List.

    And there was something oddly familiar about it. Something that felt "cool", along the lines of Arpege PH? No, more like Jaipur Homme. And something almond-y, reminding me of... what? Hypnotic Poison? (Another candidate for The List.)

    I couldn't quite put my finger on it, and it was driving me crazy. So I slept on it. Woke up and sniffed my arm. Ah! That was it! The vanilla. Same lovely vanilla as Bvlgari Black. Puzzle solved.

    And then I looked up Lolita and its nose here on BN. Well, go figure! All but Arpege PH are the work of Annick Ménardo. If I'm such a sucker for her gourmands, I mind as well blind buy Body Kouros while I'm at it!

    Yes. There really must be something in the sensibilites or approaches by certain perfumers that draw us in. In fact it looks like we may even share our preferences. I read Hillaire's post and thought, "Yeah---what she said." Chant, E. Roudnitska and especially de Nicolai. And I'd cite the same fragrances she did! I guess this should come as no surprise. There are certain choreographers, visual artists, directors, etc who work always interests me and almost always appeals to me. I love the idea that the same notion applies to perfumers. It makes me await their next work and want to try their previous works. One more I have to add: Andy Tauer. I don't know all his work but I have and adore Lonestar Memories, Incense Rose and l'Air du Desert Marocain.

    olivier creed, henry creed II and III they made some of the nicest perfumes for women, I do not wear them but the works of art they made are how a woman of class and beauty should smell like.

    Alberto Morillas is my guru, too.

    First I got Chic by Carolina Herrera. It was my first Eau de Parfum ever - I think I was 21 or so years old when I bought the bottle. Sadly I can't stand it anymore.. The second by Morillas was Armand Basi In Red which was given to me as a gift. Even though I didn't choose the scent myself, In Red has become my signature scent. I've emptied several bottles during the years it has been on the market. The third was Bulgari Omnia Crystalline which I bought on a whim from a department store sale.

    It was only a long time after when I became more interested about scents that I found out these fragrances had something in common. It felt like a revelation Afterwards I have tried to track down other perfumes made by Morillas. I've liked most of them but haven't of course collected all of them. For example, I like Flower by Kenzo but it somehow doesn't suit me, my style and personality. Strangely, like Petra Ischor, I don't like Miracle (Lancome) even though it is made by him. Its too sweet for my taste, like all Lancome's perfumes.

    I find the whole thing kinda funny: there are people who follow certain fashion designers, even though the designers might work for different fashion houses, there are (were?) "Blahnik women".. In the end, I guess I appreciate the same "aesthetics" as Mr. Morillas

    Great topic! I would never have thought of to sample scent based on the creator.
    From what people are saying, there seems to be underlying current from creation to creation regardless of House. Much like a person can recognize a painting or sculpture based on certain clues. I wonder if by sampling scent based on Nose, a person would have a greater satisfaction rate than if that person tested based word of mouth? Interesting....I am off to sample Alberto Morillas and Jean-Pierre Bethouart!
