    Default Best Designer House

    For me, it's Yves Saint Laurent.

    Kouros, Body Kouros, Rive Gauche, L'Homme, La Nuit, M7.

    Six solid unique innovative, and quality releases, at very reasonable prices.

    I wouldn't classify Guerlain as a "designer" house, therefore out of your list, it has to be Chanel. So many classics:

    Sycomore
    Bois des Iles
    Cuir de Russie
    No.5
    No.22
    Coromandel
    Egoiste
    Antaeus

    I thought Hermes was considered Niche? Or is that just the Hermessence line? Voted for YSL for unique creations, cheap pricing

    If you don't count Guerlain why do you count Chanel?

    ...

    anyways, from that list no matter what you classify them as...my picks would be VERY close, but would go Hermes, Guerlain, Dior, Chanel....honestly none of the other ones listed come anywhere near those 4.

    YSL, hands down.

    Exactly, they are a perfume house. The others are designers of clothes, bags, shoes, jewellery etc. hence the label 'designer' house I assume.

    Chanel IS a designer house. Guerlain has never made clothes. "Designer" is a fairly useless classification anyway.

    Agree completely. Not sure why there is a fascination in classifying what type of house it is. It's not like the same people who are developing the fragrances are creating the handbags and jeans anyway.
    Current Summer Favorites:

    1. Creed - Original Cologne
    2. Xerjoff - Nio
    3. Creed - Aventus
    4. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
    5. Dior - Homme Sport 2008
    6. Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver
    7. Montale - Aoud Legacy
    8. Dior - Homme Sport 2012
    9. Tom Ford - Rive d'Ambre
    10. Creed - Virgin Island Water
