    Anything niche. Although, I'd still be wearing Fahrenheit, so that's not so bad. I feel like I'd be missing out on so much. Although, I would have more money than I do now.

    Most everything I own I heard about first from you guys. Certainly my fetish for samples is a direct result of too much time spent obsessing over this site. This should be an appreciation thread. Without you guys I would still be wandering aimlessly through the wilderness.

    Like many others, I would not have all that much in my collection. I was guided by a lot of people here, and now I'm finding my own favorites that are not exactly popular here. One in particular though is TdH. I bought that basically solely on recommendation, and I am glad I did.

    Most of my collection.

    Most likely: Knize Ten, Chanel Antaeus, YSL Rive Gauche pour Homme, Versace l'Homme, Halston Z14, Francesco Smalto pour Homme

    Most stuff that wasn't hyped in Turin's book or on other sites. Many very good, some not so good lol.

    Most of my collection, thanks for being enablers!

    Finding Basenotes let me mentally push beyond my notions that more than 5 colognes was crazy talk.

    Without a doubt Chanel Egoiste.

    But in many ways also, Millesime Imperial and Green Irish Tweed as well.

    I assume you also mean purely sampling -

    Black Cashmere
    Black Tourmaline
    Citrine
    Bois d'Encens
    Amouage Opus VI
    Cale Preludio D'Oriente
    Kurkdjian Oud
    HdP Petroleum
    HdP Noir Patchouli
    Baladin
    Les Exclusifs
    and so on...

    Pretty much anything I think of sampling comes through Basenotes or Fragrantica. I also look at NST and Nero Profumo too.
