    Default Most Unique Fragrance....

    Besides the usual suspects, what would you say are the most unique fragrances?

    I will stick to unique that I also like -- these are frags for which there is no "similar to" imo.

    Shiseido Basala / Basara
    Ungaro I
    Bond No. 9 Harrods Swarovski Ltd Edition

    I've never smelt anything quite like Chergui but i'm new to the fragrance world. I'm guessing my nose needs to be educated a little more but I found it rather odd on first wearing. After using it several times now it's starting to seduce me and I can certainly see me enjoying it a lot more now, especially in the cold weather we currently have.

    Narciso Rodriguez for Him by Narciso Rodriguez - Welcome to the Twilight Zone !! The paltry, note listing belies the complexity of this fragrance. Initially, one is bombarded with a lovely, sweet and woodsy violet, whose brilliance is amplified by aldehydes, an amazing, wet concrete, a graceful wave of petrichor, that special smell of earth, caressed by raindrops after a dry spell, a flint smell and an intense mustiness from the patchouli. This surreal melange is enshrouded by a wet, foresty lushness, with flittering specks of flavorful licorice. The welcoming heart kidnaps the explosive opening and fosters its taming. Lovely violet leaves, with their inherent freshness, inspire an equisitely extreme, green aura akin to grass clippings with a shading of cucumber. Versatile patchouli imparts it nutty and earthy facets. Seductive amber, with its deep, somewhat woody and vanillic dimensions, and white musk, with its dirty sweetness add some powderiness to the blend. The robust base overtakes this humbling middle, where the multifaceted patchouli raises its faintly peppery and herbal heads as well as its mulch-like property. Dry cedar, pencil shavings as well as camphoraceous pine supply intriguing woods. And, evocative, animalic musk, where fecal pellets from critters as well as pubic sweat harmonize, contributes to the fantastical drydown. This extremely masculine and unique composition has very good projection, 4-5 hour scent cloud, and longevity, 7-12 hours - easy on the trigger is the catchphrase here. This atypical fragrance is not for the faint of heart.

    Many of the Guerlain classics...they've become unique with the passage of time, the substitution of synthetics, etc.
