The one that makes the niche crew say "they have interesting stuff"
Signature - Rochas Man, Bvlgari Black
Go-to - Baby Blue Jeans, The Dreamer, Rive Gauche.
Go-out - Angel Men Pure Malt, 1 Million
Retired - Polo Double Black, Armani Code, 212, Euphoria
Looking to purchase - Aventus any size or participate in a split
well, sounds like two different questions there... (respected and interesting)
for respect, I say Guerlain or Chanel.
for interesting i say ysl.
i'm not sure the 'niche crew' would agree

Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads
Commes des Garçons for "interesting", Chanel for "respected".
Respected; Guerlain & Dior.
lnteresting; Thierry Mugler.
"What is this secret connection between the soul, and sea, clouds and perfumes? The soul itself appears to be sea, cloud and perfume..." - from Zorba the Greek by Nikos Kazantzakis.
Guerlain, Dior, YSL, Chanel, Caron all have creations which would make niche houses jealous
What is a designer house ?
The most respected obviously is Chanel.
But Yves Saint Laurent is sooo interesting.
Interesting - Comme des Garcons.
Respected - Caron / Guerlain.
in my opinion, guerlain and ysl
Yves Saint Laurent
YSL, they also have alot of fragrances that are very inexpensive
Guerlain Equals Respect
L'artisan and Serge Lutens/ interesting
Designer is a house whose main field or products are apparel, or jewelry, or art or whatever.
For example: Chanel, Cartier, Lalique.
And as far as most respected goes, I would have to say Chanel. Guerlain is more luxe. Dior is respected too....

Aramis New West (preferably old bottle)
