    Default 2012 winding down, whats your favorite release so far ?

    Not sure about whats still on its way for 2012 releases but by and large I would have to say Chypre Palatin by MDCI is my favorite so far. Is there a chronological release chart/list somewhere ?

    A late entry into the mix is Naomi Goodsir's "Bois d’Ascese" and "Cuir Velours"

    I have a feeling once people start to sample these, Naomi Goodsir will start having a cult following around here in an Andy Tauer way.

    Turtle Vetiver Front by LesNez so far...

    Edit (12/10/12): Leave it to a relatively obscure designer house from Germany to release a blockbuster scent right at the end of the year and change my mind as to the best new release of 2012 (IMO)... The new winner by a nose is Tzora by Anat Fritz. Both these two are blockbuster caliber, IMO, along with Linfedele Haiku from O'driu.Tzora.jpg

    There haven't been many good ones this year, but yesterday I discovered AdP Colonia Intensa Oud Concentree which really caught my eye.

    I don't really get the fascination with 'oud' but this one really brought memories of the Middle East, perhaps on the Mediterranean coast somewhere. I've yet to try it out enough times to see if it could be bottle worthy.

    My favorite releases this year of all those I've tried are:

    AdP Colonia Intensa Oud - nutty warm oud wood with an "intensa" fresh touch.
    Durbano Heliotrope - fantastic floral incense.
    Oud by Maison Francis Kurkdjian - perfectly balanced floral oud.
    Atelier Cologne Rose Anonyme - a masculine rose - just right.
    A Lab on Fire LiquidNight - an earthy dark hinoki incense.
    L' Artisan Parfumeur Seville a l'Aube - orange blossom incense of holiness and passion.
    V&R Spicebomb - tobacco, leather, spice, woods.
    Serge Lutens L' Eau Froide - the best fresh fragrance this year.
    Tom Ford Lavender Palm - an enchanting, sunny lavender masterpiece.
    Heely Agarwoud - saffron rose oud wood, with manners.

    my favorite for 2012 - so far - is L' Artisan Parfumeur Seville a l' Aube.
    SUMMER COLOGNES: Gabriella Chieffo Aquasala • Dior Homme Cologne • Boudicea the Victorious Oxford • Penhaligons Lothair • Molecule 01 • Azemour les Orangers • AdP Essenza • Byredo Sunday Cologne • Ginepro di Sardegna • Maestrale • Iris Nazarena • Versace Pour Homme •
