    thats it lol, i dont have allegiance to any other houses, i like to jump around. For example, Paco Rabanne (the actual cologne) i find repulsive, yet i love 1 Million.

    I don't think i have top 5 (or bottom 5 for that matter) fragrance houses anymore.

    the great, good, bad and ugly try to find a balance and sometimes i get myself in the worst diatribes with my mind.

    Based on current interests and fascinations in order:

    1. Amouage - now thanks to the generosity of a BNer (you know who you are you guilty one!) with samples and decants, my finances face a crippling future.

    2. Serge Lutens - this is the one single house that I can survive on exclusively, for now at least.

    3. Parfumerie Generale - if any house has managed to marry quirkiness and wearability, PG has done so with great success and results.

    4. Montale - Ok, so maybe their scents might not be the most original concepts, but I can't deny that they smell great, last longer than the Zhou Dynasty, and project like laser. When I break it down, I've found Montales to be the most value for money. One spray really goes a long way, though I normally require more.

    5. Tom Ford - This is the house that has got most of my attention lately. None of the scents are to die for, actually. But they present themselves in a well-made and satisfying manner. Apart from the less than justifiable retail prices, I've found myself to be really fond of this house and a good handful of its offerings.
