    Default What's your fragrance that you love more than other people?

    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.

    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!

    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

    Hm, perhaps the idea behind the thread was misunderstood. I thought I was asking what fragrances you like more than others, even if the fragrances themselves are liked. It seems to have turned into a "fragrances others don't like but you love" type of thread. Maybe not, idk.

    If I take it this way it would then be Burberry London. I know its popular here and people love the smell but its extra special to me. My wife, at the time fiancé and I, decided to find a scent for our wedding in 2006. London had just came out and the wedding was in Texas in October. So starting to get cooler. Honeymoon in Italy so even cooler at nights. Chose London and since it has even been above love...memories, smell everything maked this #1 for me for all time in Fall and Winter.

    For me it's Comme des Garcons' Laurel. Partly objective: I really love smelling it; and partly subjective: it was my first "serious" purchase. I gave a lot of thought to spending that much money; it was a big deal! =:0)
