    There are an awful lot for me, but I've been very lucky with my collection at such a young age (21), as I feel I have a great one brewing here.

    Definitely interesting in trying:

    LDDM
    A lot of the Montale line
    Fou D'Absinthe (if this was cheaper, I would blind buy it)
    Ciel Man
    Bergamote 22 (too expensive for what it is, but I wouldn't mind at least smelling it)
    Jardin d'Amalfi (been close to blind buying a split for a while, but don't want to put that kind of money on the line)
    And as I said, many, many more.

    Far too many...however a few stand out for me:
    Dior Homme & Dior Homme Intense (decant of homme on the way)
    Creed Windsor & Selection Verte
    Pure Malt & Pure Havane
    Chanel Sycomore (although have a decant of this on the way)
    ...& a ton of other niche fragrances...

    Probably the ones that are either unavailable in the U.S. market, have limited distribution, or have been discontinued. I'm sure some of this is due to the whole scarcity principle----if something is harder to get, it becomes more desirable. The Thierry Mugler company employs this, smartly, it seems as their chief sales strategy.

    Other companies like Chanel, have been just as wisely pulling all their products from re-sellers, making them only available through Chanel boutiques. Scarcity in branding makes a name more desirable, guaranteed.

    Stuff like LIDGE, for instance. But honestly, I can't really be bothered with trying to source $150 bottles on the after market, when they likely once sold regular retail for a third of that.

    Headed to Paris this weekend.. Hopefully, everything I have in the back of my head will be sniffed/sampled, making lists as i type this. I feel sorry for my sense of smell over that 2 day span.

    So happy to see i have tried many you guys desperately want to try:-)

    Black Afgano is such a simple scent, its smoky , radiating some peppers and patchouly, it reminded me of those frags i dont like Kokoricio...this is masculine patchoulii that opens up raw, strong, later it becomes nicer warmer...but its smoking! Radiating and i find it ggressive:-) so apply sparingly, its dense, quality but composition and idea did not impress, its just one patchouli, marketing is what does the trick i think:-)

    31 Rose, pale rose scent with peppery note:-) nothing to die for:-) ....its not bad but too ordinary

    Homage, puts things into perspective as someone said! I thought after buying it i will never buy another scent cause it must be better:-) i was wrong hehehe, the search and impulse for buying not even diamonds can stop:-)

    Tribute i plan to order a sample!

    But i have not tried as of yet Jicky:-) , Or Black, Knize 10, Musc Ravageur, Envy, MDCI none!, Slumberhouse, Missoni etc and many more:-)

    Frederic Malle - Vetvier Extroidaneree
    Frederic Malle - Bigarade Concentree

    Byredo - Sunday Cologne

    And if i manage to find a stockist, then id also like to sample...

    When I sampled Black Afgano, it reminded me of sticking my head out the window while riding shot gun, staring into a pink purple and orange sunset, you know, the kind of sunset that only chemicals can paint. It was beauty humming like an engine, fleeting like the sunset, and very very intense. I did not see any marketing for this, it was offered to me by a friend.

    I would like to try Tobacco Vanille, especially to see if it really is a higher quality version of Eau de Baux.

    The one thing I'd really like to sample which I might possibly actually like is the O'Driu line. Good luck with that though, and even if I did like it, how would I get myself any.

    Tons of highly chatted-about scents I haven't tried yet, but let's be honest, most of the Classic Faves are likely to smell like hot soapy death on me, like every other classic scent I have tried.

    ETA: right, I forgot about CB I Hate Perfume. That, I've got to check out just for the name, although I have such high hopes of it I'm almost sure to be disappointed. There's supposed to be a place in Toronto that stocks some of those, though. I'm planning a trip in to spray some stuff around in another couple months, when wandering round Queen West won't be such a miserable experience.
