    Still difficult! So for the purposes of this thread, and just to change my usual vintage-heavy list up a bit, I'm going to leave out discontinued, vintage and/or "only-good-in-the-vintage-form" fragrances.

    These are not in any order of preference what-so-ever -

    Chanel Coco
    Cartier So Pretty
    Chanel Bois des Iles
    Guerlain Iris Ganache
    Creed Fleurs de Bulgarie
    Guerlain Chamade
    Lorenzo Villoresi Teint de Neige
    Parfums de Rosine Rose Kashmirie
    Hermès Rouge
    Christian Dior Dune (granted, this is much better in the vintage, but the current stuff is still extraordinary.)

    ...and, still not in any order (thanks for the extra space Hillaire!)

    Clinique Aromatics Elixir
    Acqua di Parma Magnolia Nobile
    Hermès Eau des Merveilles
    Guerlain L'Instant
    La Perla La Perla
    Chanel Coromandel
    Etat Libre d'Orange Rossy de Palma
    Keiko Mecheri Loukhoum Parfum du Soir
    Roberto Cavali Oro
    Juliette Has a Gun Midnight Oud
    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

    I have a hard time committing to top five or ten lists, but here goes (in no particular order & checking my SotD stats)...

    Pure White Linen - have worn this one most often now for about two years straight, and I always love it (and I'm fickle!).

    No. 5 - all variations. Though I've been on/off with No 5 over the years, I'm really enjoying it now.

    Shalimar - Haven't been wearing it much, and I only have edc atm, but it's always been a favorite, and parfum, too, of course.

    Versace signature edp - A friend sent me a bottle or I'd have never tried it. It's very pleasant & I've worn it often.

    Emeraude vintage pdt - I wish Coty still made it like this.

    Eau d'Hadrien - year-round all-round great jus.

    Obsession edp - the original one for women. Is this considered an 80s power scent? The one of my choice if so.

    Pink Sugar - New love for me, even though it's been around for ages.

    Oils - green cedar, lavender, etc. Sometimes I need a break from commercial perfumes yet need the benefits of aroma.

    Jicky edt - perfection.

    It's difficult, as I'm seasonally confused! I'm getting tired of summery fragrances, but until today it's still been in the 90s! (today is cooler, hooray!) And I'm noticing that some make it onto this list as I've recently acquired them, so we're still honeymooning )

    Patou Sublime
    Guerlain Après L'Ondée
    Serge Lutens Bois de Violette
    Le Labo Iris 39
    Guerlain Les Elixirs Charnels - Oriental Brulant
