    A very extensive line, lots to enjoy. These are my top picks from the house:

    Eau de Parfum ( original )

    Intense spicy clove-pepper-cinnamon with a honeyed drydown.

    White

    Similar but milder scent, more touched by ginger and curry spices.

    Incense Series: Avignon

    True to life frankincense scent, very pure, direct, and long-lasting.

    Guerilla 1

    Bizarre synthetics meet meaty, overripe flowers. Oddest of their ones I've tried.

    Luxe Series: Champaca

    Very realistic narcissus fragrance, lush and classical ( smells out of place in the line, but none-the-less charming ).

    Luxe Series: Patchouli

    Darker, smokier, more intense variant of Sables ( think: immortelle bomb ).

    CDG x Monocle: Hinoki

    Dry, green, edgy cedar. Very clean and minimalist.

    CDG x Daphne Guinness: Daphne

    Intense powdery tuberose-orange-incense scent.

    CDG x Stephen Jones: Stephen Jones

    Powerfully odd, non-sweet aldehydic violet fragrance.

    Great call Suga, How could I have forgot about this? Bizarre fragrance, indeed!

    Luxe Series: Patchouli

    Darker, smokier, more intense variant of Sables ( think: immortelle bomb ).
    I'm craving to test this one but it seems unavailable around here. How is the patch in this one?

    The patch definitely plays second-fiddle to the immortelle. If anything I'd describe this scent as immortelle accented with spices, smoky birch tar, and patchouli. If one finds Sables too sweet and linear, I'd say Luxe: Patchouli is a great next stop, but it's not a patchouli monster. It has a very ''parfum'' feel, concentrating on base notes and a with a long, steady strength to it that favors dabbing.

    This sounds as PURE PERFECTION to me! Thanks Suga, I'll unchain my dogs immediately so they can help me in the hunt.

    I've only explored about half the line, but:

    CdG Eau de Parfum : spice
    CdG White : spice
    Green Series - Calamus : powdered sugar
    Red Series - Harissa: spice
    Red Series - Rose : raspberry dessert
    Synthetic Series - Soda : sweet lemon-lime
    Daphne : creamy orange

    They also had a whole ''Sweet'' series, all gourmand, but they're discontinued and rather rare.

    It's rare to find all the Comme des Garcons at one store. I've seen nearly the whole line available at Barneys, and I know Luckyscent had the whole line available last time I looked. The other ones that I know for sure are discontinued are the Original Comme des Garcons Eau de Toilette ( not to be confused with the Eau de Parfum, still around ) and Mint and Shiso from the Green series ( which is really too bad, as Mint is kind of cool: new-mown lawn smell! )

    There are a few oddly-named limited editions from years ago ( e.g. ''Pearly Monster'' ), but they're all just novelty bottles for the Original Eau de Parfum.

    They also switched the cologne series into smaller bottles, raising the price per ml significantly. If you love one the cologne series ones, try to find some of those big ones! They're great deals.

    Jaisalmer and Avignon! I own a bottle of the latter and have thought about buying the former as well, although I think I like it even better on my husband than on me.

    Jaismaler makes me feel as though I am taking a walk in a certain arboretum in CT-- the one across from Connecticut College. This arboretum has both deciduous and evergreen trees and has a wonderful greenness in the air.

    For a Japanese house, I'm surprised that I can't seem to locate this, ummmmm..... ANYWHERE around where I live (and I live in Kobe, not a small or out of the way city by any stretch of the imagination), including the local Barney's New York that only stocks like 4 houses (seriously). Their official website isn't that helpful either.

    The only CdG I've liked that hasn't been mentioned is Series 6: Synthetics -Tar, which is best worn on a hot day. Series 1: Leaves - Lily is nice ... and of course it's "soapy", with just that touch of bitterness it's supposed to have.

    I do need to sample Garage some day.

    If you like 2 Man, keep an eye out for the After Shave Gel. It's the consistency and texture of hair gel and it disappears into your skin and leaves a tenacious scented aura all over your face with bit of emolliency to it. It enhances the fragrance nicely. Same goes for the Shower Gel. Both I've found on Ebay.

    I didn't vote in the poll because there are just TOO many for me to recommend. My opinion: Sample ALL OF THEM, on skin, not just on a tester strip.

    And do yourself a favor and sample all 5 of the Incenses. Remember: CdG released these WAY BEFORE everyone and their mother had an incense scent. Now incense scents are everywhere but back in 2002 when these were released they were VERY ahead of their time and the art direction and 'pure incense' idea got copied by a bunch of niche and designer lines. These are ESSENTIAL for any fan of CdG to test/smell/own.

    I'm spoiled, because the Perfume Shoppe in Vancouver has a good range of these scents - not all, but the most popular ones.

    I thought I loved Kyoto until I wore a sample (rather than sniffing a piece of paper). All I got from it was smoke.

    But I think Jaisalmer is the star. It has freshness over a dark undertone, which gives it more depth. On me, at least.
