    Post Top 10 Niche List

    I done a quick search for a definitive top 10 niche list and couldn't really find anything other than a thread from about 2 years ago. So I thought it would be worthwhile opening a thread for a definitive top 10 niche list.

    What I want you guys to do is to name your top 10 niche fragrances then at the end of each month I will count up the totals and post the current top 10 chart in this post.

    So get posting!

    Each counted the same or weighted by rank? I would not count Creed as niche, as it can be found pretty much in all Saks and Nordstroms. Same for Caron, while it is less widely available than most niche, it's really an old former mainstream house. Anyhow, my current faves:

    1) La Myrrhe (Serge Lutens)
    2) Knize Ten
    4) Muscs Kubilai Khan (SL)
    5) Jasmin et Cigarette (ELdO)
    6) 1740 (Histoires de Parfums)
    7) Invasion Barbare (Parfums MDCI)
    8) Temps d'une fete (PdN)
    9) Idole (Lubin)
    10) Virgilio (Dyptique)

    They're all ranked the same and I will sort them according to the number of votes each fragrance receives

    Could I ask that when you are composing your list you write it in the following format

    Fragrance house (full name) [SPACE] Fragrance name

    So for example:

    Serge Lutens Chergui

    This just means that I can easily copy and paste it into my spreadsheet.

    Thanks

    10 is pretty restrictive for some of us, but let's say

    Guerlain Habit Rouge EdP
    Guerlain Derby
    Creed Green Irish Tweed
    Amouage Dia Man
    Knize 10
    Creed Royal English Leather
    PG L'Ombre Fauve
    Le Labo Rose 31
    Penhaligons Sartorial
    L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme

    I've listed some Guerlains since I see some others did...I tend to think of them on the border between niche and designer (but they're goooood).
