    Default Your top fragrances released in 2010 : Niche or Designer

    Here's the deal, love to get some help from the basenotes community. I usually post a video on new years day of a top 10 list of my favourite releases of the year that I purchased on my youtube channel. My top 10 for the year 2009 was not bad, and this year I'm hoping to knock out a great top 10 list for my viewers.

    The Question is what are your top releases for 2010 , this will help me decide to do a few more purchases before the year is over and see if I can find a few more jewels for 2010.

    Here's the bottles I have that have been released in 2010 : (not in order)

    1) D&G The One Gentleman
    2) Aventus Creed
    3) Bvlgari Man
    4) Marc Jacobs Bang
    5) Gucci by Gucci Sport
    6) Bleu de Chanel
    7) Boss Bottled Night
    8) Guerlain L'homme eau
    9)Prada Infusion de vetiver
    10)le male terrible
    11) Kristiansand NYC
    12) ck one summer 2010
    13) voyage hermes

    My next purchases (will be bought in a few weeks) :

    1) Montale Full Incense
    2) Amouage Memoire Man
    3) CDG Wonderwood

    So BN what am I missing ???

    As far as designer offerings there's The One Gentleman and John Varvatos 10th Anniversary Fragrance, which happens to be my SOTD.... both are awesome in my opinion and better than a handful on that designer list again in my opinion.

    Of the one's I've tried (only designer), Bleu de Chanel is still my favorite. Though I'm probably going to be in the minority on that one.

    EDIT: Actually I think the Atelier line came out in 2010, so Trefle Pur may be my favorite.

    Well you could always layer that with the JPG and Marc Jacobs new offerings and you would have...... um... a terrible blue bang!

    Out of curiosity, does HMA have any family resemblance to Halston Man that was released in 2009?

    Of this year's releases:

    Designer: Marc Jacobs Bang

    Niche: Creed Aventus

    I just wish both of these had more "umph".

    I knew you already have my fav of the year, because you showed the bottle off on YouTube. Guerlain Homme L'Eau.

    While Sartorial ain't my thing, it is very interesting and I can appreciate it.

    I will be both a stuck record, and a lone voice, and suggest Declaration Cologne.

    This is something I am absolutely dying to try, both because of your positive mentions of it in the past and the notes list combined w/ the fact that it's by Wasser, who I think is actually a really great perfumer (a few 'speed bumps' excepted).

    John Varvatos 10th Anniversary -- this one lasted 10+ hours on my skin (unlike the Original and Vintage).

    I have tried it.Very fascinating fragrance but the longevity on my skin wasn't good...about 4 hours and it turned into a very subtle ,hardly detectable skin scent...
    Any other comments?

    I didn't really give it a thorough wear, as I sprayed it on at Nordstroms and wasn't very mindful about protecting that spot from rubbing against my clothes, etc. That being said, I can't say much about its longevity, however, the sillage and aroma itself are both high quality. Its not one of those scents that you have to ponder for a long time before deciding you like it.

    I'm not a fan of MJ Bang, but then again I don't like Gucci PH I so that shouldn't surprise me. I will say this: I sprayed it on in Sephora and 10 mins later a cashier at another store exclaimed, "Wow you smell great!". It caught me so off guard cause I thought it made me smell funky. Go figure....
