    One of my favorite houses at the moment. I own and love a handful of their scents. If I had to choose, my absolute favorite 3 are:

    Cuir d'Iris: Animalic/Leathery Iris-Amber
    L'Ombre Fauve: Animalic Amber (smoky vanilla base)
    Felanilla: Animalic Vanilla (with saffron and iris too)

    I'd say that the (slight) quirkiness, quality, and simplicity of PG scents make them very very appealing to me.

    L'Ombre Fauve- unique, sensual musky with an animal fur vibe. Very potent too. Little goes a long way. Monster sillage if you're not careful.

    I've sampled quite a few from the numbered range, but only a couple from the private collection. My favourite two which I purchased a while ago are:
    Cologne Grand Siecle No.7 EdT - Excellent fragrance using essential oils and natural extractions. There's quite a few others that have similar notes, such as Fiero from Xerjoff and Lorenzo Villoresi Uomo, but it's great for anyone who appreciates a good Citrus scent.
    Yuzu Ab Irato No.9 EdT - I love the spearmint note in this one.

    L'Ombre Fauve is fabulous, although it is quite moody on me
    I find Bois Blond VERY unique and interesting. I can't get it out of my mind, but it did not take me where I had hoped it would.
    Apart from that, I tend to really dislike this house's sweet note that you can find in so many of their frags - Brulure de Rose is a good example for this.

    Nobody has mentioned Querelle. It's by far my favorite from this house. Vetiver, incense, a bit of stale tobacco smoke.
