i think i'm the opposite... i like classic designer frags.
Yes AromiEritoci... I'd like to challenge any Basenoter to go to Sephora and buy all the classics. (in their classic state.)
But I'm not going to go into whether classic designer fragrances are better or worse than niche fragrances. My point is that while one can collect and enjoy these gems, there is only a small finite number of them. In 2-3 months, I'd collected a bunch of what I really enjoy from the designer houses, and now I just feel that there isn't enough left from these houses to keep me excited for the foreseeable future, whereas I've only scratched the surface of what the niche houses have to offer.
