    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

    That's only eight, I am leaving the slots open for something new...
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    Ten I love today:
    Caron – Le Troisième Homme
    Comme des Garcons – Monocle No. 2: Laurel
    Costume National – Scent Intense
    Dawn Spencer Hurwitz – Prana
    Histoires de Parfums – Noir Patchouli
    L’Artisan Parfumeur – Bois Farine
    L’Artisan Parfumeur – Nuit de Tubereuse
    Romeo Gigli – Romeo Gigli
    Serge Lutens – Gris Clair
    Tom Ford – Amber Absolute

    (I'm especially drawn these days to aromatic notes that feel "bracing" in cooler weather, hence my love for Laurel, and Gris Clair.)
    Spray it, don’t say it…

    Oh, somehow I missed this list. Well, list are important, so:

    Chanel Coromandel
    Chanel Bois de Ilse
    Shiseido Feminite du Bois
    Bois 1920 Sushi Imperiale
    PG Cadjmere
    FM Iris Poudre (as an iris lover, i think this has come out on top of the heap)
    Mauboussin by mauboussin
    AG Ambre Fetiche
    Eau de Lalique (i have enjoyed this almost more this fall than during the summer)
    SL Douce Amere

    with a special nod towards a stunning sample that I am thinking hard about as FBW M. Micallef Guaiac (just have to decide if it is different enough from Cadjmere)

    This is fall lineup rather than all time favs, although most of them would apply anyway
