    What are your top 3 Comme des Garcons?

    It can be revolutionary, or just plain good.

    I'm not a huge CdG fan (I tried!) but the ones that I ended up liking were Avignon, Ouarzazate, and 2.

    I've owned/worn Odeur 71 for years...I've gotten nothing but compliments while wearing. Awesome scent.

    Avignon is an easy choice. Kyoto is a close second to Avignon. Standard is a potent wood frag which I also love. Hinoki is also another nice one, but I can't distinguish it enough from Kyoto to warrant owning both. Even though they're "different", they're also the "same".

    2 Man is unique enough to warrant a sample, I don't find myself wearing it much anymore...but I'd still recommend it. I've had a 100mL bottle for years that's been sitting at around 85% (shows how much I wear it).

    Well, I guess I'm a little off base with everyone:
    Dover Street Market-Absolutely love the stuff, a little conservative for CDG but to me it's fantastic.
    Green Play-Doesn't get much love here but if you like mint it's a good one.
    Soda-Straight up Lemon Vinyl-Great stuff.

    The incense line is great along with the odeurs, etc. I just had to recommend these 3 that I love, and have loved for a while now.

    i will have to for CDG tea because it is very wearable, or Monicle series Laurel because it is dry and peppery.
    14 sprays of DRAKKAR NOIR should do it

    Looking forward to trying Laurel since I do like the other Monocle — Hinoki.
    That little turpentine note just really zings it.

    Huh, I find CdG Tea to be pretty far out and kind of challenging, which aren't characteristics of something i'd consider "very wearable." I do like it, but its on the strange side, even for CdG.

    Luxe Champaca is my favourite to date. Kyoto is quite good, but not for me. I'm not a fan of Wonderwood, Odeur 71 or EdP 2011. I need to sample more of the line, 2 Man sounds quite appealing.
