    Default L'artisan parfumeur, what would you guys recommend?

    Hey guys, today I saw many l'artisan fragrances in a discount shop and I was wondering what would you guys recommend since I'm planning to blind buy one. I dont really know that house, I have only sniffed Havana Vanille (now called Vanille Absolument) and Timbuktu.

    Fou D'Absinthe, Traversee du Bosphore, Dzing, are three good ones but there are many many others that are good.

    Dzing, Dzongkha, Timbuktu, Al Oudh, Fou d'Absinthe. And Batucada is really nice in the warm weather.

    Can I ask where you saw them?

    Wow! There was a thread on here a couple weeks ago about that. I checked my local Winners, but there was nothing good. Perhaps I'll check again tomorrow. Thanks!

    Actually if you go directly to the l'Artisan counter at Ogilvy, you will find not only what you see at Winners but all the fragrances and sizes that have been discontinued. I bought a 50ml bottle of Patchouli Patch for half price. Very nice.

    Half price, lucky ...

    I'd say the safest is timbuktu, incensy woody. Dzing is fun but is very dirty, so it depends on taste.

    Timbuktu seems to be one of their most popular, and you have to love a good incense fragrance.

    Timbuktu, Dzing, Dzongkha, Navegar, Fou d' Absinthe, Al Oudh, Havanna Vanille edit: also L' Eau du Navigateur - all are very good.

    I'm looking forward to get Timbuktu, but it is indeed their number one best seller and quite hard to come by on sale. So it can wait..

    So many to get from this line. Not mentioned so far but wonderful, imo, Pathouli Patch and Voleur de Roses

    I think Mechant Loup is one of my favourites from L'Artisan. Nice spices but also light and fresh. "Bertrand Duchaufour’s abstract portrait of the hazelnut tree." Timbuktu is also quite nice.

    I own Timbuktu (see my signature ) and If I could find them discontinued for good prices I would also buy

    Al Oudh

    I like:

    Tea for Two
    Traversee du Bosphore
    Mure et Musc Extreme (though I might be the only one who likes this one)

    There have been lots of great suggestions so far though. Good house.

    I am not a big fan of the house, but the much maligned Coeur de Vetiver Sacré is by far my favorite, and is a superb smelling spiced bergamot tea (spiced Earl Grey if you will) over a transparent Vetiver heart. Great stuff, IMO.
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4)
    Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6)
    Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)
    9) Javanese Patchouli (Zegna) - tie
    9) Monsieur de Givenchy vintage (Givenchy) - tie
    9) Coeur de Vetiver Sacré (L'Artisan) - tie
    9) X for Men (Clive Christian) - tie
    9) Patou pour Homme Privé (Jean Patou) - tie
    9) Oud Shamash (The Different Company) - tie

    Not my favorite house, as I find that the artistic concept of the house (which I really like) disappointingly tends to translate into fairly ordinary and underwhelming scents (I have yet to purchase my first L'Artisan FB). That having been said, I do like especially Tea for Two, Patchouli Patch and Al Oudh. However, with so much good stuff out there, I have felt little compulsion to actually go ahead and get a bottle of either at full price. Now, a good campaign offer (like the one you've found) might be the kind of thing that would make the difference for me...

    If you can get ahold of Tea For Two and L'Eau du Navigateur, grab them immediately as they are discontinued and in my opinion, the best of the line. But they have many excellent ones: Dzongkha, Dzing!, Safran Troublant, Fou d'Absinthe, Méchant Loup, Coeur de Vétiver Sacré, Voleur de Roses, Al Oudh, Vanille Absolument, Traversée du Bosphore... The new one also smells nice, but it's coming out in April...

    Not really into this house but I do have some that I like - Tea for Two - wonderful smoky black tea (recently acquired Gucci Pour Homme II and find it a shadow of Tea for Two), Passage D'enfer - a very serene light incense, Poivre Piquant - a very warm spicy scent and L'eau de Navigateur - coffee woody intoxicating (very similar to Eau Des Isles by MPG - I actually prefer MPG offerings). Navegar is a rather pleasantly spicy but on the lighter side. The creation that I find the most fascinating is Bois Farine for its tribute to smelling like flour ....

    The unique Voleur de Roses.

    My pick:-

    Al Oudh
    Safran Troublant
    Timbuktu
    Fou d'Absinthe
    L'eau de Jatamansi
    Premier Figuier
    Traversée du Bosphore


    I'm curious to try L'Eau du Navigateur though...
