    But in opposite to DULLAH I have made my list with fragrances marketed towards women in mind too. Both Guerlain and Caron are on the list because of their unisex "female" fragrances.

    1. Traditional scents made by Guerlain
    2. ?
    3. ?

    Traditional scents made by Molinard, Fragonard, Galimard and Caron are almost unknown to me.

    Designer's come after these.

    Sorry I can't do 3. There are no best IMO. But houses I respect for their consistency, vision & execution:

    Dior
    Creed
    Chanel
    Serge Lutens
    YSL
    Hstoires de Parfums
    Sonoma Scent Studio
    L'Artisan Parfumeurs
    Frederic Malle

    Guerlain dropped out of the list as I feel they rely too much on past glories; SDV being their last decent offering.
    There are other houses but I have yet to get better acquainted with incl. Amouage, PdN, MPG, etc.

    Quite surprised Penhaligon's weren't in your list. You seemed to really like 'em not long ago?

    Very surprised at Bond no. 9! Their fragrances seem to copy over houses, although the longevity seems to be improved!

    I think "improved" is the operative word. For example, I really tried to like GIT before I ever heard of Bond, but it just wasn't my thing. Chez bond, on the other hand, I loved immediately.
