    Default Designer fragance that smells like a niche fragrance

    Are there a few designer fragrance out there that you think smells like a niche fragrance.... the 2 that comes to mind for me are.... Encre Noire by Lalique and M7 by YSL.... a 3.3 oz bottle of Encre Noire sells for only $42, but it smells like a bottle that cost $200+
    My Top 10

    1. Amouage Homage Attar
    2. Serge Lutens - Muscs Koublai Khan
    3. YSL M7
    4. Serge Lutens - Ambre Sultan
    5. Chanel Egoiste
    6. 24 Gold by Scentstory
    7. Amouage Epic Man
    8. Amouage Jubilation XXV
    9. Bond No. 9 New York Oud
    10. Serge Lutens - Chergui

    Pheromone for Men by Miglin is one that rarely gets mentioned, in this or any context!

    I like YSL Live Jazz here. It seems somewhat unique, quite complex, and feels high quality.

    Chanel, Dior, Hermes, Guerlain, Caron, YSL.

    Most of what those houses offer is a distinct step above typical designer quality and concept, at very affordable prices.

    gucci pour homme - mainstream brand, but quite an unusual scent.
    I tried it early on, and was quite taken aback by how different it was to everything else I'd tried that day. Kind of started me out on my perfume voyage. Made me wonder what other smells were out there!

    Caron and Guerlain are niche houses, they dont design anything.

    Kouros has an impeccable drydown - niche like quality.
    Fahrenheit is unique in ways many niche houses would envy for their offerings, and masterfully constructed.

    Cartier Santos concentrée - for me smells like niche, it blew me away when I tested it, but I don't own it.

    Oooo an oldie but goodie. I haven't worn that in years. Her "M for men" was also nice.

    A lot of the Chanel and Guerlain fragrances have that niche kinda edge to them. Dior Homme stands out among most of the other designer fragrances currently offered.

    If you ask me, EL's White Linen is borderline avant-garde, like an effort from CdG.
