    Default Its YOUR Choice!!

    Hello BN Friends!

    Part of my New Years resolution is to spend less money on frags, so I am limiting myself to collecting my spare change and singles in a large jar and when its full I will use that to buy something new. As a small way of saying thanks to everyone who has ever posted here on BN I am letting you all decide what I buy. This jar is pretty large and when its full it holds about $200-250(maybe Ill buy 2 frags). Its about 75% full right now so I thought I would start the poll and tally everything up when it fills up. I want something that is rich, opulent, complicated, and challenging so here is your list to choose from(I have sampled all of these so I know I like them):

    1. MFK Absolue pour le Soir
    2. MFK Lumiere Noir
    3. Mazzolari Lui
    4. MPG Parfum d’Habit
    5. Montale Aoud Musk
    6. Montale Patch Leaves
    7. Ramon Monegal Ambra di Luna
    8. Ramon Monegal Agar Musk
    9. Chanel Cuir de Russie
    10. Vero Profumo Onda EDP
    11. Amouage Epic Man
    12. Amouage Memoir Man
    13. Amouage Jubilation Man/Woman
    14. Tauer LDDM
    15. L’Artisan Parfumeur Dzing!

    Parfum d'Habit. This is a unique and elegant scent. No very likely to be worn everywhere.

    I chose Memoir Man. If you want opulent though, go with Jubilation XXV. It's a little harder to wear in my opinion, but nice.

    I voted for Chanel Cuir de Russie. An absolutely wonderful unisex leather frag that is both complex and not the usual to wear. One of my favorites.

    this is IMPOSSIBLE for me. With the exception of Patchouli Leaves, the rest of the list include tones of my favorites...If forced to choose with a gun, I'd probably go with Onda Extrait.

    let me add one thing though...if you base your purchase on a poll, you'll end up buyng the most popular fragrance and not the best...

    You are probably right Alfarom...thats why I stacked the deck in my favor! I love every one of those on the list and I was having too much trouble deciding on which to buy. But I think I will continue the poll every I time fill up the jar and that way each frag will get a new chance to come home with me. Also I will be eligible for the BN Marketplace in a few weeks and Ill be selling a few bottles, and that money will go to this purchase, so I might pick up second and or third place too.

    ...obviously he asks for the most popular (which is by the way not necessarily not the best).
    Asking several people (forums [fora]) for 'the best of this' or 'the best of that' is always asking for the most popular (amongst fellow Basenoters in this case)...!

    I think Tauer's LDDM is absolutely superb, but I don't find it particularly challenging. I don't mean that in a bad way though. Quite the opposite. On paper, I thought it might be challenging, but on skin, I found it surprisingly easy to wear.

    Lonestar Memories by Tauer... now THAT'S challenging!

    A lot of grat options - I voted for Désert Marocain. It's a beautiful incense-amber combo (actually the only incense-heavy frag I really enjoy these days...). I'm sure you wouldn't regret getting it!

    Jubilation XXV. Yes it's not the easiest to wear on all occasions, but it looks like you're saving for something special - and special it is!

    Agar musk is positively breathtaking! It's my favorite Oud scent of ALL! It has a real true Oud note that stays long and strong. No rose. It's unique and unlike any other Oud I have smelled. Is like a beautiful vetiver/Oud/wood blend.

    What do you mean by "super-niche"? And why would AplS have a higher risk of discontinuation than the others?

    I voted for Absolue pour le Soir, by the way. Honorable mentions: L'Air du Desert Marocain, Memoir Man, and Cuir de Russie.

    I like the idea of a poll to decide on a frag! I want to do this someday.

    I went for Jubilation because it seems the one least likely to be around forever. I think it is limited edition but I could be wrong...

    I am so surprised that many of you voted for either of the Kurkdjian offerings. They're both absolutely vile to me haha.

    In fact, i don't like anything from the line at all except cologne pour le soir and Oud (which i love).

    I voted for J25
