    To be honest, a lot of expensive niche fragrances. It's simple human psychology. People save up and splash a huge sum on an expensive bottle and then try to hype it as much as possible to garner more interest to justify the amount they spent (hoping also that more and more people want to get that fragrance but can't owing to availability and/or price).

    Very well said. ADG is severely looked down upon on this board, but is adored in the real world.

    Yes, I find ADG kind of watery - like someone splashed water on me.

    I'm far more fond of Halston Unbound - it's like someone splashed flavoured water on me.

    Acqua di Parma Colonia. Yes, the rose is rather nice, but...ugh, that musk in the base! It is not a classic composition so much as the silhouette of one.

    My main problem with it is that it is boring compared to others of a similar idea. The fact that it sells so much, gets so much praise, ect while I don't particularly care for it is the definition of overrated.

    I can completely agree.

    I could live in that skanky amber cacoon that ambre sultan envelopes me in. I think serge lutens and sheldrake are amazing. Best perfume line that I have encountered in my short niche history. Like everyone else.....aventus, but I also don't think l artisan is all that. I've sampled nearly their whole line and haven't been interested in anything.....maybe patchouli patch. Everything duchefour make he puts cinnamon in or at least that's what it smells like to me. I just don't get the l'artisan hype.

    For me, Acqua di Parma's Essenza Colonia doesn't get the hype it deserves.
