    Invasion Barbare by MDCI, where was I from the time this b'ful frag born? I have been so irresponsible, so please forgive me for buying u so late

    Another - Clive Christian C - a huge WOW - I didn't read Tom Ford Tuscan Leather on the sample vial - this frag is more than a 90% clone of Tuscan Leather, so I am happy to have bought TL first...

    Lastly - Versace Eros - WOW wonderful bottle with crap juice inside...STAY AWAY from this

    The last two that I thought 'wow' were Montale's Mukhallat and Keiko Mecheri's Mulholland which was more of a 'wow' in terms of how versatile I thought it was. I'm usually not a huge fan of citrus but Mulholland seems just so well done and rounded.

    Unfortunately I haven't gotten that feeling from anything in a while. Spicebomb was good enough to warrant purchasing the gift set, but didn't knock my socks off. Other than that, I haven't really found anything worth buying for quite a while.
    I don't have a signature fragrance. My signature changes a little bit every day, why shouldn't my fragrance?

    Still really enjoying the massively underrated Kokorico

    Piment Brulant amazes me every time I put it on.

    There's this scent called 'Aventus' made by a bunch of weird, quasi- monarchists cultists called Creed. They charge a fortune for it.

    I just explored the relatively new Ramon Monegal line...Have tried them all, Dry Wood and Agar Musk were both "wow" scents.

    Another +1 on Jardin d'Amalfi. I usually dislike Creed releases and expected to be let down yet again, but I really was quite pleasantly surprised.

    As to my own... The two releases from the small limited distribution designer house Anat Fritz, Anat Fritz (original) and Tzora are both absolutely amazing smelling and wowed me for almost polar opposite reasons.

    Honorable mention to Supercilium by O'driu which is an extremely innovative take on vetiver.
    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

    Yes I've heard of that. It's the only fragrance on the planet known to contain royal pineapple.
    Some say Olivier Creed's descendants came to earth many centuries ago with the occult knowledge of perfumery. Since then it has been passed on only through their bloodline on the male side.
    You may need to find a grey market source though, as I believe only those with the correct genetic characteristics are permitted to enter their boutiques.

    Define 'recent'

    Nothing much, TBH.

    Seville l'Aube was a pleasant surprise wow considering it's another Duchaufor.
    Les Deserts Trio, of course - esp. Encens Mythique & Songe d'un Bois d'Ete.
    Myrrh et Delires (that was a year ago).
    Opus VI was a wow.

    Beloved Man is cool but intentionally not a 'wow' piece, and the new Forever Now Gucci Villoresi did is well worth trying but also a more understood piece of work.

    L'Heure de Nuit is okay . . . La Petite Robe Noire Extrait is pretty good, worth owning if you're a Guerlainista.

    Waiting to see if the new Dries van Noten par Frederic Malle wows me.

    Aaaaah - Mito - that was 'wow' - gotta try the Extrait now.

    Having said all that I'm not exactly chasing down the new releases these days

    Hermes Vetiver Tonka Very nice take on vetiver, considering a full bottle purchase
    Frederic Malle En Passant Such a photorealistic lilac, one of the most beautiful florals I've smelled recently. Interesting composition with the bread lingering in the background.

    The Different Company Limon de Cordoza
    Great citrus, a clean modern edc. The lemon rivals Eau d'Hadrien.

    I wasn't necessarily wowed by it but Rive Gauche Pour Homme really is a great fragrance. Initially it smells like a shaving cream but it dries down to so much more. Really happy with this purchase.

    I was really smitten and surprised with Fat Electician as well.
