    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

    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....
    SEEKING BOTTLES OF:

    Aramis New West (preferably old bottle)

    Azzaro Aqua
    Gloria by Cacharel

    PM me if you have bottles that you're willing to sell or trade!
