    I'd add JC Ellena and Roja Dove. I haven't voted yet but I'd pick Roja Dove simply because he made Puredistance M. Otherwise probably Calice Becker for her work on the By Kilian line.

    I hope this doesn't come off condescending, but it's childish.

    That said Edmond Roudnitska is the best perfumer of all time :P

    I know Chanel's frags are kind of safe and boring, but they have had the same designer for all 8 frags, and he did a very very nice job - going from Anateus overPlatinum Egoiste, Egoiste and to Allure Homme, and Edition Blanche, so he's my choice

    Pierre-Franois-Pascal Guerlain. The oldest innovator in the 1820s. He created a real perfume house with a REAL pedigree, no fanciful tales about aristocratic perfumers.

    That being said, I would go with Ernest Daltroff of Caron.
    "That lover which is like fragrance
    Whose voice is as beautiful as Urdu.

    She who hides in the flowers
    you can only find her from her fragrance."

    "Chaiyya Chaiyya," from the film, "Dil Se."

    Jacques Guerlain, with no hesitation. I'm happy to see the voting agrees.

    He composed L'Heure Bleue, Mitsouko, Shalimar, Aprs l'Onde, Mouchoir de Monsieur, and Vol de Nuit. Who else will ever make so many perfumes that are still seen as masterpieces after 100 years? No one else has and no one ever will again.

    Claude Frayesse (Weil) and Sophia Grojsman (too many to mention) come to mind.

    Only because I haven't had the opportunity to smell them yet! I hope to one day, but even based on the ones I know, JG is clearly the Yoda of perfumers.

    Basing it just off my pigeonholed taste in modern/contemporary masculine and unisex frags, I'd say my pick for my own personal favorite of all time is ............... Pierre Bourdon.

    Or I could just be a dick and say Henry Creed.

    You forgot ALL of the best perfumers of 'all time': JC Ellena, Bernard Chant, Guy Robert, Patricia di Nicolai, E. Roudnitska, Dominique Ropion, and Germaine Cellier.

    Please smell some of these perfumers' works; they are inspiring.
