    Default Favorite fragrance (out of the ones listed, of course)

    I remember seeing Green Irish Tweed win the fragrance championship, do I thought I would throw some of the Basenotes favorites into a poll. I realize I did not include many fragrances, I just simply compiled a list of fragrances I hear a lot of praise for.


    Also, pretend that each fragrance is the version you enjoy the most. For example, I listed Egoiste. If your favorite fragrance is Egoiste Concentree, pretend that's what the poll says.


    Once again, just vote for your favorite fragrance on the list, it does not need to be your favorite ever.

    Just realized that I forgot LIDGE. If that is your favorite on the list, reply below!

    Aventus and MI are the only one's I have experience with, and if I had to pick between them, I'd pick my comfort scent...Aventus.

    I hear Jubilation XXV, TV, and GIT are great too though (I'm getting in TV and Jubilation samples sometime in the next few weeks).

    Not trying to be a scientist here but I think a "pick top 3" option or something would give us a better idea. I'm sure a lot of people could easily flip their 1 and 2 spot on a dime. In either case it's an interesting poll. I picked Green Irish Tweed.

    L'Air du Desert Marocain
    Puredistance M
    Jubilation XXV


    but in these kind of polls, if Aventus is included, it's gonna be the winner anyway.

    Puredistance M by a mile.It's just my opinion.

  35. #35

    Default Re: Favorite fragrance (out of the ones listed, of course)

    Too hard to narrow down since I own and really dig 10 of 13 listed. Not that number of times worn is synonymous with favorite, but I've worn Aventus the most of the one's listed. I don't think it's my favorite but I sure seem to reach for it a lot.

  36. #36

    Default Re: Favorite fragrance (out of the ones listed, of course)

    Aventus followed by DHI which is also one of my favourites

    Interesting to note that out of the first 116 responses to the poll, only 3 are in double digits. Aventus and GIT seem obvious, but I'm surprised to see L'Air du Desert Marocain in 2nd place. Interesting! I need to sample that one! God, I wish there was somewhere locally (Portland) to sniff it.

    EDIT: Just checked in with The Perfume House. Sounds like they should have it by Mid October. I can wait a few weeks

    LOL! Ok, so I have to say that I'm actually glad I'm not the only one that picks up a "gasoline" or "fuel" smell from Aventus. For me, it's fairly light, however, and tends to fade away by drydown. Now, normally I can't stand frags with fuel, rubbery, tar, or oil smells to them (I'm looking at you Fahrenheit, Bulgari Black & A*Men). That being said, Aventus has actually turned out to be one of my favorites. As I said, the "fuel" smell is pretty light & doesn't last terribly long (really only get it in the mid notes), but overall I find it to be incredibly well blended and the stuff just lasts and lasts on me. Plus, my wife really likes it on me, and that never hurts.

    Still though, my vote was for GIT....it's been my favorite "scent" for nearly 15 years. It's just... "me"
