    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

    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 Pomegranate Noir, Midnight in Paris EDP, Feeling Man, Essence of John Galliano, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage),...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of PdE Ambre Russe, Jil Sander Feeling Man, Comme des Garcons 2 Man, Giorgio VIP, ....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.
