    Iris Taïzo - very delicate cardamom & soft woods
    Cuir d'Iris - leather & iris - instant love if you like these two notes
    Felanilla - vanilla I can actually enjoy without feeling overwhelmed

    Aomassi & Harmatan Noir are also very unique.

    for swap/sale:

    I'm with Hedonist on Cuir d'Iris and Felanilla. Yes - if you love leather and iris, CdI should be easy to love for you.

    Felanilla is a big, gourmandish vanilla, but with a smooth, rooty iris note. A very interesting and unique take on a vanilla. It's supposed to have a banana note, but it's not a sweet, overripe banana - its more like a green, vegetal banana.

    Those are the only two that have won me over so far, but I have yet to try many of them.

    Louanges Profanes - quite unique imho, an incense that never goes 'churchy'
    Cadjmere - a very modern balanced oriental
    Brulure de Rose - a yummy chocolate rose and Djhennè - a musky sunkissed hay and lavender with cocoa to keep it 'grounded'

    Oooh, one of my favourite houses. I couldn't name just three favourites, but I would say that three of the ones I enjoy most are:

    Querelle: one of the most masculine perfumes I have, it has a fougère vibe although it is more of a chypre.
    Louanges Profanes: incense, florals and resins form a masterful blend of something gourmand and really addictive.
    Tubereuse Couture: a close relative of Tubereuse Criminelle, this one replaces the root beer with tuberose candy. It is sweet and uplifting, a real pleasure.

    I also love L'Ombre Fauve, Cedre Sandaraque, Coprs et Âmes, Cadjmeré, Drama Nuuï, Praliné de Santal, Un Crime Exotique and Intrigant Patchouli.

    My favorites from Guilaume are these three:
    L'Ombre Fauve
    Intrigat Patchouli
    Aomassai

    I know he is known better for his gourmand fragrances, but I prefer when he works on the woody oriental theme
