    I've just sampled Guerlain's SDV and that could well be making a play for a top 3 spot soon....

    So, does that mean Goldilocks would call us "just right"?

    1 - L'Anarchiste - the only fragrance I've owned more than one bottle of.
    2 - Musc Ravageur - one of two fragrances I'd re-buy at over $100 a bottle.
    3 - Millésime Impérial - the other $100+ fragrance I'd buy, but only after testing it to see if it still matches the quality of my original purchase some 7 years ago.

    I wonder what the 75 to 100 year range would wear?
    Your nostrils, which will dilate immesurably in unspeakable contentment, in motionless ecstasy, will ask nothing better for space, for they will be full of fragrance, as if perfumes and incense; for they will be glutted with complete happiness, like angels who dwell in the peace and magnificence of pleasent heaven.

    This is cool. It hadn't really occurred to me that there would be a generational thing here but it appears that many of us prefer woodsy/earthy frags with some tilting towards a bit of sweetness. I'm not sure what I'd list as a top three at this moment but many of things listed are just the sort of perfumes I love to wear at this time of year. Makes me sort of happy to see this.
