    Default If you were to own only one bottle from each niche house listed, what would they be?

    Creed, Bond.9, Tom Ford PB, Amouage, Frederic Malle, Serge Lutens, By Kilian, L'Artisan, Montale

    Obviously theres more, but this will do. I'm curious because obviously i cant afford every niche bottle there is. What im planning on doing is owning one niche bottle that i love the most from each house. I havent smelled all of them yet, but from what i have smelled, this would be my list:

    Creed: Virgin Island water
    Bond.9: New Harlem
    Tom Ford: Japon Noir (for now)
    Amouage: Reflection Man
    Frederic Malle: Musc Ravegeur (though L'eau D'hiver is close behind)
    Serge Lutens: Gris Clair (But i have only tried this one, and 2 others from this house.)
    By Kilian: Love
    L'Artisan: Tea for Two
    Montale: Black Aoud (But i need to try more from this house. I like full incense too)

    However, I wouldn't try to just get your 1 favorite from each house -- pick your favorites regardless of which house. I would probably pick 8 Creeds or 7 Bond No. 9 fragrances before picking the top L'Artisan fragrance.
    Current Summer Favorites:

    1. Creed - Original Cologne
    2. Xerjoff - Nio
    3. Creed - Aventus
    4. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
    5. Dior - Homme Sport 2008
    6. Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver
    7. Montale - Aoud Legacy
    8. Dior - Homme Sport 2012
    9. Creed - Virgin Island Water
    10. Kenneth Cole - Black

    Trust me, i will always have the juice of the fragrances i love, even if i have to keep ordering 10ml decants of it. This is more for bottle collecting purposes for me. I want one bottle of the fragrance i love most from each house, and even if i love a creed more than a favorite scent from another house, i guarantee im gonna have my decants prepared! But i understand what youre saying

    Well, it doesn't have a vagina, if that's what you're asking? JK, yes it is marketed towards women, but it's a dark spicy rose, easily wearable for a man. IMO it's much more masculine than something like MFK Lumiere Noire Pour Homme.

    Haven't smelled all of the houses, of the houses I've smelled I would take

    Creed- Aventus
    Bond no.9- Brooklyn, Bleeker St., or Hamptons
    L'Artisan- Tea for Two
    Tom Ford- Tobacco Vanille

    Based on reviews of what fragrances smell like I believe from the other houses I would choose

    Amouage- Reflection Man
    Frederic Malle- Musc Ravageur
    By Kilian- Back to Black
    Montale- Chocolate Greedy or Boise Vanille
    Serge Lutens- Chergui

    Personally I doubt that I will touch any of these houses because none of their fragrances really draw my attention.
