    Apart from Aventus and DHI, maybe also GIT and, to a lesser extent, the "pure" ranges of AMen flankers.

    Definitely Aventus!
    and by far distance DHI & LIDGE.

    I think every scents name that is written with capitals only and everyone knows what it is.

    DHI GIT LIDGE...

    So you hope to keep this thread going for years for reasons of historic interest?
    Good luck with that.

    I have been collecting fragrances as a hobby for a year now. I have heard so much talk about Creed Millesime Imperial that I finally blind bought a bottle. I own Aventus and GIT, and do like them (just HATE the hype). I don't generally blind buy but I figured with all the Love for it I could sell it if I didn't like it. I must say it is a let-down. It smells forgettably generic. I understand the obsession with Aventus/GIT they smell totally unique...but this is a generic floral.

    Shame to be caught up in the hype, I sampled MI after all the positive feedback on the forum, but wasn't keen either. Just glad I didn't blind buy... Can you return it? (No shirk wrap on Creed box - makes this easy...)

    Terre d'Hermes is often mentioned in the Starting Out-forum, it's a safe all-round choice to recommend to a newbie. How many times has it won Scent of the Year in the Basenotes Awards?

    It's no problem...I'll try it a few more times, , and then sell the whole bottle as "used" I've done it before with really popular frags, the resale value is almost as high as "New" In fact I was watching a bottle of Creed on EBAY a while back, it had 31 bids and up to $189...thing was you could get it new on Fragrancenet for $132!!!

    I would think Invasion Barbare by MDCI...A wonderfully created masterpiece.

    I'm surprised Encre Noir hasn't been mentioned. Outside of Aventus, this fragrance has piqued my interest just because of the numerous times it's been suggested.

    MI a generic floral? First time I've ever heard it described as generic and especially floral. Sounds like to me you bought a fake bottle.

    Agreed. Not floral, also far from generic. Straight up beautiful.

    I haven't seen much on the threads recently regarding Encre Noir. It's good stuff, like Sycamore but a little more "dirty" vetiver, in a good way. It's cheap, worth a blind buy IMO if you like vetivers.

    It was Terre D'Hermes back when I started. EVERYONE was mental about it!

    Up on top its the flavor of the month Aventus & Co.

    If you click on the number of wears, it looks like the user Francop has been wearing it multiple times during the month.

    I thought Bentley for Men Intense was going to overtake Aventus talk. And Slumberhouse is the new darling on the block here too.

    It's 'Arran'. As in 'Isle of Arran', a remote Scottish island, where the perfumery is based.

    'I have a son called Darren,
    And a daughter whose name is Karen.
    Without them my life would be barren,
    Like living on the Isle of Arran'.

    Aventus may have been the last "super popular" one. Those that came before include LIDGE, DHI, TdH and Pure Malt, but it really depends upon what time period you are examining. Over the last few months I haven't detected one or a few that have stood out the way some others have over the last several years.

    Perhaps that person is getting paid for promoting it or something? He/she posts the same scents like 20 times a day! Weird...
