    Default Favourite / Must try fragrances by family

    My 'want to sample' list is getting smaller by the day. I've tried a lot of stuff since my quest began, only a few months ago. I want to add to my 'want list' and help people along the way, hence the reason for this thread.

    I want to know your opinion on each fragrance family. What is your favourite fragrance in the family and what fragrance is a classic/must try of the family. I will hopefully get round to sampling most of the fragrances mentioned in this thread, and hope it helps new members.

    The families:

    Floral:
    Fruity floral
    Soft floral
    Oriental floral
    Plain Floral

    Fresh:
    Green
    Aqua
    Citrus

    Woods:
    Dry woods
    Mossy woods
    Woody oriental
    Plain woodsy

    Orientals:
    Soft oriental
    Plain oriental

    (families from Michael Edwards)

    If you haven't tried all families, please just specify ones which you have tried.

    Hope this works...

    Fruity Floral: Diorella

    Floral Oriental: Comme des Garcons 2 (is this oriental?!)
    Green: Chanel 19/ Grey Flannel
    Aqua: Millesime Imperial/ New West
    Citrus: Yuzu Fou/ Orange Sanguine
    Dry Woods: Patchouli by Lorenzo Villoresi/ Encre Noire

    What's the difference between a plain and soft oriental?
