    It's a tie for me, I do love Creed, they make top notch fresh fragrances, my preferred house for the warmer weather. Tom Ford makes some of my favorite orientals, lots of them are my favorite scents for the colder weather.
    Current top 5:
    1. Puredistance M
    2. Yosh Sombre Negra
    3. Amouage Fate Man
    4. Parfums de Marly Galloway
    5. Naomi Goodsir Bois d'Ascese

    Serge Lutens, L'Artisan.....for the time being.

    While they may not be the most original choices, both seem worth being familiar with.

    But now that summer's on the way, I can understand why people might say Creed.

    I agree. Chanel and Bond No.9 are only behind by a hair in my book.

    Divine. Any time they put out a new fragrance, I am interested to try it just because it's a Divine, no matter how it's marketed or what the advertised notes are. There's no other house for which that's true.
    Current Top Five:
    1. Bois des Iles--Chanel
    2. George Sand--Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier
    3. L'Ame Soeur--Divine
    4. Violet Blonde--Tom Ford
    5. Santal Blush--Tom Ford

    Most houses have at least one or two good scents and I have some from each house mentioned. Also Love Serge Lutens, Montale and Hermes. I strike Creed for inconsistencies between batches, longevity problems and insulting prices.
    My Favorites
    1a. Slumberhouse Zahd
    1. Amouage Epic man
    2. Dior Leather Oud
    3. Amouage Tribute Attar
    4. Le Labo Patchouli 24

    I chose Chanel based upon their Exclusives line. The Chanel Exclusives are really nice as a whole and separately. However, like most others in Basenotes, I have a couple of scents from many different houses. Guelains Exclusive line is very nice as well.
    Five that I am enjoying right now

    1) Sel de Vetiver by The Different Company
    2) Spiritueuse Double Vanille by Guerlain
    3) Bois des Iles by Chanel
    4) Devin by Aramis
    5) Coromandel by Chanel

    It's Dior by a wide margin for me. Also really like Mugler. Creed & Tom Ford too, but some are really expensive and not worth that much.
    p.s. I think the Chanel house is rubbish. Only like Chanel Allure from their male line, the others are "meh" for me.
