    Bang Bang was worn more than any Mugler, Creed, or Dior? Not buying it

    Yep. I hear people raving about Arran Aromatics Vetiver (AAV) all the time. I believe the mods were considering creating a sub-forum to handle all of the is my AAV real, which batch of AAV is best, is AAV overrated, etc. threads.

    Fair enough, the current system allows users to put multiple scents in on one day so they don't have to make sure they log in every day, but it is ridiculously easy to game. I wonder if it has had any impact on sales of Bang Bang by Marc Jacobs, English Rose by Yardley and Pétale Noir by Agent Provocateur.

    It's just the opinion of those who participated in providing the data!

    In that top 20, the only thing i've worn in the past year is Aventus once or twice!

    Statistics, statistics & **** lies?

    It's interesting looking at them 'though, but how 'opinion' is judged is another question!

    Does it reinforce your self confidence and reduce buyer's remorse symptoms if you herd with others?

    I don't worry about wearing unpopular fragrances. I just wanted to put this idea out there and see if it was fairly accurate.

    Everyone has a different agenda when it comes to frag's.
    But picking a general top 3 what?
    Most talked about-most worn-most sales?

    Everyone might have an agenda, but if someone said FCUK is a much better fragrance than Bulgari Black, most people will see there's something strange going on with that assertion. Other contenders should be obvious, like GIT, LDDM, & New Haarlem, but if we looked at which 3 niche bottles not only smell outstanding, but are given great reviews on here and other sites, discussed frequently, and of course, very popular to wear for a wide range of male demographics, those 3 might be at the top.

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals don't warrant or deserve other individuals' acknowledgement or respect.

    Maybe I'm imagining things but MR seems to be getting 'rubbished' on threads recently

    Nope. Not Safe. I don't even consider Aventus or MR to be in the top tier of niche.

    Yes Aventus does get a lot of attention but so do most Creed's..
    You said top 3 niche..
    You can add MI also..
    Thanks for the clarity

    Fairly honest and decent choices and can go with them any given day.
    Yet I would rather expand my list as not to end up getting bored with the ones
    I love from repetitive applications
