    Default Your favorite Lorenzo Villoresi?

    It seems it's been a while since anyone has done a poll on LV and a few things have come out from that house since then. So let's have a go at this -
    My own vote goes to Vetiver, which I consider a very rich and highly gratifying earthy take on that note (albeit remarkably linear). I am also very impressed by Patchouli and Piper Nigrum and I also enjoy Wild Lavender as a successful attempt to approach the classic fougère style from a modern perspective.
    Which one is your favorite?

    I have only tried a few but I like Uomo while it lasts. I did not like Piper Nigrum as it's too much like Tiger Balm that I use.

    Piper Nigrum I no longer enjoy, so I have to say Patchouli closely followed by Musk although it seems a little too feminine for my taste

    I own a bottle of Vetiver and have a 2ml sample of 'Wild Lavender' and my girlfriend owns Teint de Neige and has a sample of 'Musk' These two are imo for women 'only' as they lack any masculanity.

    My vote goes for Vetiver as it's the darkest most pure Vetiver I own and I really love it!
    My Top 10 : (In no particular order)

    - Dolce & Gabbana: Pour Homme (vintage)
    - Paco Rabanne: Pour Homme (vintage)
    - Loewe: Solo (Absoluto)
    - Chanel: Antaeus
    - Chanel: Egoïste
    - MPG: Santal Noble
    - Guerlain: Vetiver
    - Amouage: Jubilation XXV
    - Dior: Homme Intense
    - YSL: Kouros (Fraicheur)

    I love Lorenzo Villoresi and own and enjoy most of these fragrances. I chose Piper Nigrum, but Vetiver would be a very close second for me. Yerbamate would probably be third.

    I voted for Uomo.

    I had sampled Piper Nigrum and thought it was fantastic--fresh, bright, spicy, etc. Then I ordered a bottle and either my initial impression was wrong or the juice in the bottle was flat, because everything I originally liked about it was missing.

    My fave is actually not on the list - the discontinued Ylang Ylang. It's an amazing scent, with a real classic Chanel vibe. But my other bottle is Yerbamate.

    Sandalo is my first pick with Piper Nigrum and Vetiver coming just right after. I quite like Incensi as well but it's somewhat weak....On a side note, I'm growing quite fond of Theseus as well. An overlooked gem IMO.

    My favorite Villoresi are Patchouli, Vetiver and Uomo. Aqua di Colonia is also a fine cologne -one of the better eau de colognes.

    Piper Nigrum (before reformulation), then Incensi and Uomo.

    This may explain why Piper Nigrum didn't wow me as much as I expected!

    Sandalo then Vetiver then Yerbamte.

    I tried patchouli yesterday. It was addy reformulated. The original smelled damp, dank and jungly. This smelled polished. Like the Reminiscent patchouli series. Sad really.
