    I would say Guerlain or Azzaro - both are about equal in my collection. Azzaro stuff is more casual, Guerlain stuff is more professional/evening type stuff.

    Another +1 for CdG.... Yes, it's a designer, not niche in my book too.

    YSL for Kouros with Chanel a close second for Cuir De Russie, Sycomore and Antaeus.

    I own only 1 or 2 from each of these houses, so I'd say I don't have a favorite house based on my collection. If I had to PICK only one designer house it would probably be YSL for the sheer variety of smells.

    My favorite house overall is Creed, followed by Bond. There. I said it. I own several from each of them.

    Interesting question. I'm really a newcomer, and I haven't tried any designer extensively enough to be sure, but current top three (not in any order)...

    * Chanel (Egoiste, Antaeus)
    * YSL (Rive Gauche, M7)
    * Guerlain (Vetiver, Habit Rouge)

    To choose just one, it would have to produce a lavender-heavy fougere, something animalic, a nice rose-based floral, and something woody and spicy.

    Chanel by a significant margin.

    Second is Tommy Bahama - not a clinker in their small but delightful lineup.

    When I was in the designer world, I loved some D&G and Versace. Nautica also had a good couple of fragrances. I just can't wear it now after spoiling myself with such awesome niche fragrances...

    I am head over heels in love with the house of Dior.
    But Chanel is a very close runner up.

    I guess Dior for their female frags:

    - Les Poisons
    - Miss Dior Chérie - original formulation
    - Dolce Vita
    - Dioressence
    - Diorella
    ... to name but a few.

    Chanel for their male ones:

    - Égoïste (Cologne Concentree)
    - Antaeus
    - AHÉB
    - AHSEE
    - Pour Monsieur
    - -ll- Concentree
    ... again, to name but a few!

    But, the male Diors and female Chanels are also TDF.

    I also adore Givenchy, though.

    It's either YSL or Thierry Mugler.
    Hoping to try a few Chanel's soon.

    Its a close one between YSL and Creed. Creed with the advantage by a nose.
    Looking to trade:
    Gucci Pour Homme 1.7oz 99% full.

    Looking for:
    Tom Ford Tobacco Vanillae, Tom Ford Black Orchid, A*MEN Pure Malt

    Tough choice between Chanel & Dior now that Dior have their Privé Collection happening.

    BTW - I don't consider Guerlain as 'designer' as their primary business has always been fragrance and related products. I could quite happily live with only Guerlain stuff.

    Easily Aramis. I have Aramis, Aramis 900, Tuscany, Tuscany Forte, Havana, Devin, and JHL (am on the hunt for New West; PM me if you're selling it), and all are superb.
