    Favorite house for me would mean one from which I've found a handful of scents that greatly appeal to me, as opposed to a house from which I've only found 1-2 favorite scents. Take into account I have not tried every scent offered by the houses, yet.

    As of now (I can't pick a single favorite, I love them equally):

    Serge Lutens: Muscs Koublai Khan / Chergui / Ambre Sultan / Cedre / Fille en Aiguilles + many more actually.

    Parfumerie Generale: L'Ombre Fauve / Felanilla / Cuir d'Iris / Iris Taizo

    Montale: Attar / Black, Red, White Aoud / Oud Cuir d'Arabie

    Creed (If we consider it niche): Silver Mountain Water / Virgin Island Water / Erolfa / Green Irish Tweed

    Tom Ford (If we consider it niche): Tobacco Vanille / Japon Noir / Noir de Noir / Amber Absolute / Tuscan leather / Italian Cypress / Black Orchid

    Honorable mentions:

    L'Artisan Parfumeur: Vanilia / Fou d'Absinthe / Tea For Two / L'eau du Navigatuer / Havana Vanille

    Etat Libre d'Orange: Tom Of Finland / Rien / Eloge du Traitre / Vierges & Toreros / Vraie Blonde

    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."
