    Default What is today's "popular Basenotes fragrance"?

    So i've been doing a little reading around on here and see that there seems to be "trendy" fragrances that seem to come and go, only to be replaced by the next big thing. As an example, think of when Pure Malt ruled these forums and even had its own sub-forum only to lose its mantle eventually to the likes of Creed Aventus etc.

    This led to the idea of a "today's hottest fragrance" kinda thread where we can post and keep track of the current popular fragrances which will slowly evolve over time. I reckon if we can keep this thread going long enough, it will make for some interesting reading to look back on the hype trends set here on Basenotes. I don't necessarily mean the most commercially popular as this will always be the likes of Acqua di Gio etc. I mean the most popular on these forums and amongst us fragrance aficionados.

    So what is the most popular right now?

    It's got to be Aventus and Dior Homme Intense.

    It really comes down to a question of who on basenotes. Among the hype crowd, it'll be Aventus. Among newer members and especially younger members, it'll be Aventus. But there's also a strong niche crowd here and I doubt Aventus would be their choice even though, in theory, Aventus is a niche scent. I say 'in theory' because Aventus is actually a very safe scent that smells more designer than niche to me.

    This is exactly what i'm hoping to see. There's often more than one fragrance hyped on Basenotes at any one time. Not to stereotype but you have:
    - Those who are just starting their fragrance journey and are still trying out all the designers
    - Those who have tried most designers and are dipping their toe into niche
    - Those who have tried the main niche fragrances (read: Creed, Tom Ford/Chanel exclusifs)
    - Those who have tried more niche (read: Andy Tauer, Montale, harder to find in department store stuff)
    - Those who have tried a lot of niche and are trying obscure niche most will not have heard of

    This should hopefully allow for more than one or two fragrances to emerge as the current "most hyped" fragrance.

    Over the course of about 4 weeks I have seen more than one thread on

    Aventus (with so much conspiracy and controversy concerning this one I doubt it will ever die)
    DHI
    Rive Gauche (much so that I decided to purchase the threads have sorta died on this one.....a very great purchase, glad its in my collection)

    Among niche houses, I think Slumberhouse has become quite popular. Slumberhouse has been mentioned on most fragrance article websites and has won several "best of" awards too.
    Summer 2013 Top 10 :

    1. Creed Aventus
    2. Dior Homme Sport (2012)
    3. L'Eau Bleue D'Issey
    4. Bleu de Chanel
    5. Acqua dio Gio Essenza
    6. Strange Invisible Perfumes - Peloponnesian
    7. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    8. Diesel Green Masculine
    9. Terre d'Hermes
    10. Guerlain Homme

    Yep. Bang on target.

    Slumberhouse has a couple of dedicated threads that are constantly being contributed to by a few die-hard fans, but when people ask for high-end recommendations, it's M and IB that I think are most often mentioned.

    Hahaha reading every one of those names makes me think "Oh yeah, there are lots of threads on that."
    A great list of the most-mentioned frags on BN, RedRaider.
    MiP is pushing hard for inclusion, too.

    Spicebomb gets quite a bit of hype on the designer side. (Gotta admit, I do love it though).

    When I joined Chergui, LADDM, MR, Amouage Reflection, and Pure Malt were talked about quite a bit. I still say GIT is the most talked about fragrance ever, but Aventus has pretty much been the hot topic for a couple of years now.

    It's been Aventus and DHI for a while it seems. The LIDGE hype died down mostly

    I'm actually surprised by how quickly the hype for Spicebomb seemed to disappear here. I haven't noticed it being talked about much here lately, if at all. Bleu seems to get more hype here these days than Spicebomb.

    Yep, I had the same thoughts. Surprising, since I think the general overall sentiment toward Spicebomb has been mostly favorable.

    I came "this close" to ordering samples of these two today. I've never smelled them. Curiosity is killing me.

    This. I wouldn't say dislike. I just think their hype isn't warranted.

    Anything Creed and anything that makes you smell like an old man haha (kidding.) But seriously I usually don't blind buy from BN suggestions, except for a few that I've been very happy with (minus Guerlain Habit Rouge.)

    I guess it really depends on what you mean by "popular" or "hyped."

    Someone mentioned Slumberhouse, but whoever said it's mostly contributions from some fans and such are pretty much correct. Those threads are generally used more as discussion and less as hype.

    I'd say Jardin D'Amalfi has gotten a lot of positive attention lately, partly due to my thread I guess. Still, I've heard it mentioned a lot elsewhere off basenotes, but that may not really answer your question. I'd say DHI, Pure Malt, and Aventus are still popular topics, but not as much as they were in their peak.

    This about covers it. Maybe Sycomore, Ambra Mediterranea, and Jubilation XXV also...
