    Default Modern Memories / What New " CURRENT" Fragrances Will Be Talked About In 10 Years From Now

    We do a lot of reminiscing on this site about the classics. Unfortunately they aren't the same...beating a dead horse.

    What fragrances do you think people will be talking about in 10 years from now that we currently have on sale today ? What will be the new classics ?

    I think Dior's Leather Oud and Montale Dark Aoud could be contenders. Otherwise the question has me stumped

    Please consider the scent itself but also sillage and longevity. The complete package.

    Jardin D Amalfi is a frag I see being talked about for a while.

    He seems like a nice guy though and I do appreciate the hand written note with my purchase.

    I really liked LDDM and Lonestar Memories but the longevity was a joke. My bottles were from LuckScent.

    Agree on Leather Oud. Aventus too, I suppose. Some of the L'Artisan scents maybe. Who knows?

    Midnight in Paris will be like Escada Magnetism, which has become quite popular. Also, Terre d'Hermes will be the next Dolce & Gabanna BY Man, when they finally discontinue it. Those are just my silly predictions.
    Summer Rotation:

    Versace Pour Homme by Versace
    Cool Water Game by Davidoff
    Tom Ford Grey Vetiver
    H.M. by Hanae Mori
    Vettiveru by Commes Des Garçons
    Riverside Drive by Bond No. 9
    Soon to include "Ab Spirit Silver"

    If smelling good was a crime, I'd be serving a lifetime sentence....

    True. How could I have overlooked that one ?

    Strong candidates in my opinion: Mugler Cologne, Creed GIT, Bleu de Chanel, Burberry London among others.

    Depends are we talking about classics that will still be popular or ones that will fall out of favor outside of connoisseurs 10 years from now.

    Burberry London definitely! Good call.

    Current best-sellers (designer fragrances) will probably be the next classic -- 1 Million, Bleu de Chanel, L'Homme, Spicebomb to name a few.

    I think Eau Sauvage Parfum will stand the test of time. It's got the right balance to be considered a classic. (It's not for me however...) But it's hard to tell because of the niche explosion of releases. This is a brand new era of multitudinousness unlike any perfume epoch of the past.

    +1 Creed Jardin d'Amalfi
    +1 Creed Aventus

    Heeley Sel Marin
    Frederic Malle Vetiver Extraordinaire
    Amouage Jubilation XXV
    MFK - Lumiere Noire Pour Homme
    Chanel Bleu de Chanel
    Chanel Sycomore
    TDC - Oud for Love
    MCDI - Chypre Palatin


    I think these will stand the test of time. Many others also. 10 years is not a very long time in the grand scheme of things.

    All perfumes sold before year 2000. It means all non-reformulated ones, when the oakmoss was real oakmoss, civet was real civet, and castoreum was real castoreum. And not all these chemical substitutes.
    Begin to stock piles of old perfumes, NOW.

    That would be cheating

    My question has to do with year 2000 and forward.

    I think, if we're honest, fragrances like Bleu de Chanel and Paco Rabanne 1 Million will be classics of our time. Aventus will remain a timeless classic among everyone, those that remember it as an awesome "niche" fragrance and those that remember it as the overhyped safe "designer-esque" fragrance.

    Some candidates that will go down in history for me:

    MDCI Invasion Barbare
    Aventus
    Terre d'Hermes
    Chanel Allure Homme Sport

    The very polarizing ones... like maybe A*Men or Le Male.

    Lovers would continue to fawn over it and haters would still be bashing it, and so the debates and arguments about whether it's a must-have or a stay-away-from will continue on.

    Yeah, good call. Especially Le Male. A real love of hate!

    Well, probably Yves Saint Laurent M7, and Gucci "pour Homme" (Tom Ford era).

    YES. I wanted to nominate this one as well but I wasn't sure if it was new or pre 2000. ***High Quality goods that delivers!

    I cringe at the price though.

    Completely agree with YSL M7 and Gucci Pour Homme. Absolutely adore both of them and cherish my bottles.

    Chergui and Ambre Sultan, perhaps?

    People will realize the genius of Jaque Polge's 31 Rue Cambon, Yatagan will be talked about again, and more BN men will wear Mitsouko.

    The first ones that come to mind are the recent Guerlain Les Deserts D'Orient trio, Onda, many Etat Libre D'Orange....

    Dozens of recent issues will survive at the proves of time, for instance Dior Patchouli Imperial or Cartier Declaration d'un Soir, together with many many good new releases as Mito, Aventus, some Guerlain etc etc.

    Maybe it's difficult to say, who could have imagined "Patou pour Homme" and "Macassar", at these prices? More expensive than gold!

    Leather Oud - Oud Ispahan
    Sycomore & La Pausa
