    Default What is that one cologne you can safely say "it is one of a kind!"

    I am looking for a cologne that stands out from the rest.
    Regardless of its price, you can safely say its unique.
    Something that does not smell like anything in the market and absolutely one of a kind.
    A fragrance that makes you say "I have never smelled anything like it in my life"

    Yeah I agree with most of those listed here, Black Afghano to this day is still unique but certainly slumberhouses are as well. I haven;t sampled them but I am hearing O'driu stands on its own as well...so much so that every its prices are pretty unique

    Lately, M;0oC by Masaki Matsushima. Green apple laced with tequila. Feels aquatic but is not. Longevity is very impressive, though it is not a projection beast. Has fast become one of my favorites among the few frags i own.

    Two sadly discontinued fragrances from the 90s, namely Joint by Roccobarocco and Spazio Krizia by Krizia- some of the most, rich, complex, versatile, luxurious, discreet yet persistent chypre scents I ever got to smell.

    I think almost every fragrance I've ever smelled has things that are somewhat like it, with one exception:

    Vintage Kouros.

    (Maybe the current formula too, but I haven't smelled it so I can't say, so I added "vintage" to be on the safe side).
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    Too many to count really, quite a few are very unique and have nothing similar.
