    Default Most underrated house

    For me the easy answer is Annick Goutal. This is a very high quality niche house that uses excellent natural ingredients, but I can easily get any of their 100ml bottles for $60.

    Diptyque. Always seem relatively underhyped compared to many yet remain a quality house with many fine scents.

    I agree +++ with Annick Goutal.
    And the name of the perfumes are often very stupids although the scents are greats.
    And i don't talk about the feminine packaging with littles butterflies everywhere...

    Because you asked an opinion question?







    I don't think I've ever seen a unanimous or near-unanimous thread as far as responses without much guidelines go.

    I'll put in a vote for Divine. Their feminines are extraordinarily good, especially L'Ame Soeur, L'Inspiratrice, and Divine. And on the masculine side, L'Homme Sage and L'Homme de Coeur are wonderful.

    Absolutely agree! She makes extraordinary perfumes, and you can hardly find her on the internet. Try, if you can, Barry Lyndon, Exultat, or Gershwin...

    I still think Micallef is the most underrated, but Humiecki & Graef surely does not get nearly as much exposure here (or love!) as they should, imo.

    To the person on the street, not afficianados like us, I'd say YSL is underated. If you're under 40, most people have not heard of Kouros or probably even Opium.
