People who frequent this board or are active in the fragrance community in general know how much certain fragrances are liked. Out of the ones you enjoy, which one do you feel you like considerably more than others tend to?
This doesn't mean it's a fragrance you love that others hate, moreso a fragrance that you particularly appreciate beyond the hype/reviews/talk.
For me, while I don't have a lot of experience with a ton of scents, I think I could say I love Chypre Palatin probably more than most. It just radiates with me in such an amazing way. Also worth mentioning is Himalaya since people tend to forget about it/call it generic but it gets a lot of play from me.

Good question, btw.
I like Lacoste essential a lot actually and I know it's not a fav.
Hammam Bouquet. Sometimes I feel I am the only one in the universe to recognize its genius.
I have an unnatural love for Back to Black its not a hyped crowd fav like Aventus or the like but I love the stuff, I can only assume the gods had a hand in birthing it into creation.
"Geez, when are the 'We love Aventus' T-shirts coming out?"
Puredistance M. I think the price scares people away from even trying it!
However, you can get a sample at luckyscent for around the same price per ml as by the bottle and the sample will last a few wearings - c'mon people - let's hype something really good!

I will defend Bang by Marc Jacobs until my dying day.
If there was a fire I would risk my life to rescue my bottle of Murdock's Black Tea and then if there is time I would go back in to rescue my girlfriend.
This might be bending the rules as it's discontinued and doesn't seem to get any bad press but I will say Nina Ricci Phileas
Armani Mania. Widely panned here but on my skin it is a very smooth, linear white musk type cedar.

Bvlgari man . I love it , but I feel I am the only one who loves it.
Most fragrances I like are rather less popular without being necessarily underrated and/or hated, just not among the greatest fragrance bestsellers either, e.g. Armani Eau pour Homme
@Octavarium-agree 100% on Chypre Palatin-MDCI, breathtaking.
It was a calculated risk. Unfortunately, I'm bad at math.
Most of the above is unanimously liked. I'm surprised you guys feel you're in the minority.
Here's my list:
34 Boulevard Saint Germain
Hasu No Hana
Eau Mage (high five alfarom)
l'Heure de Nuit
L'Anonyme ou OP-1475
Chypre Palatin, no doubt here. Notable mention is also Ambre Topkapi.
Paul Smith man
Allure Edition Blanche
Obsession gets no love, but I will never be without it.
