    Question The Best Of These Caron's

    I have picked out perhaps some of the more obscure Caron's.
    Which is your favourite, and why ?

    My wife used to use Montaigne. Asked if she liked it. Said yes.

    I havent tried any of these! Id love to know more about them though, as I absolutely love the Carons I do have. Hopefully this thread will provide some more insight into where I should begin sampling. Thanks David!

    I chose Aimez moi because it is so complex in it's development and I like violet notes.

    other favorites

    Infini
    Nuit de noel
    Parfum Sacre
    Narcisse Noir
    Nocturnes

    Tried En Avion. Pretty good.

    En Avion! It's absolutely dashing!
    I love Acaciosa, too. Or et Noir is probably the best dark rose perfume ever with the distinctive Caron Marron Glacé drydown. Pois de Senteur and N'aimez que moi are lovely as well.

    I've chosen Infini cause I love it; is impossible to say which one is better among so many great ones for me.

    Default Re: The Best Of These Caron's

    From the list, En Avion is my favourite.
    Tabac Blond ( not mentioned ) rocks, too.
    The rest I'm ambivalent about, though appreciate the quality.

    I voted for Acaciosa, the combination of jasmine and pineapple is just fantastic. Pois de Senteur is a great variation of Acaciosa, and Farnesiana would have been my third pick.

    I admit to not having tried any of these. A house thats definitely worth exploring.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    I am a little surprised that Nocturnes is not faring better !

    I, like others, haven't tried any of these. Well, I think I sampled Alpona but honestly I cannot remember a thing about it, so it must have flew right over my head.

    Of course, I love Tabac Blond but more recently I tested vintage Nuit de Noel parfum and fell in absolute love for it.

    Statements about Caron should always come with a specification of concentration (parfum, edt) and vintage.

    I voted for Acaciosa - perhaps, the fact that it's only in parfum helps. As it often happens with Caron parfums, the first five minutes are gorgeous. Rich, with an oily feel that's at once dirty and irresistible. The first day it seemed to go on like this. Another time I wore, I noticed a disturbing, clean, soapy orange blossom note (regrettably common in Caron) threatening to obliterate the rest of the frag. I need to try again.
