    Hi friend!

    IMHO maybe Loewe is a house more representative of a Spanish-smell than Rabanne. (and of more quality btw)

    P.S. moreover, with that team, we lose
    my current top five (always in transition)

    Dior Eau Noire
    HdP 1725 Casanova
    eau de gloire parfum d'empire
    Dia man Amouage
    comme des garçons man 2

    We may not lose, since my vote goes to the Spanish team - but indeed, Loewe is more representative

    sure? I think they are made in Spain by Puig, like Carolina Herrera and Prada.

    Problem: vastly different fragrance budgets: 'pricey' niche vs designer 'cheapos'.

    But my vote goes to Spain. I just find Tom Fords' OTT style 'tacky'. But that's just me.

    It's not just you, count me in. I voted Tom Ford just because when I think about Paco Rabanne there're no ways for me to forget about 1 Million or Black XS. LOL

    I like Paco Rabanne's offerings more than Tom Ford's. Who knows, but I hope no one thinks Tom Ford's private blends count here.

    If I had to choose to have fragrances from one house, it would surely be Paco ! Tenere is great. I really like Ultraviolet and can live with a couple of other offerings.
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Nicole Miller (vintage), Opium pour Homme, Oxford & Cambridge...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of Jil Sander Feeling Man, Cacharel Nemo, Bijan for Men EDC, Lanvin for Men, Giorgio VIP, Il Lancetti and other old school frags ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    I voted Tom Ford because he's still trying. Paco Rabanne hasn't released anything I like in decades.
