    Default The best niche is...?

    Ok, guys!

    Another kind of post that isn´t new. Nevertheless, shall you do kind of a fragrance competition?


    The idea is to have a group of 3 fragrances, the most "similar" possible. The poll results wil be considered for a week period.

    This poll is for Niche fragrances. Designer will have also a competition. After that, having the winners for each round, we will simply choose the one we like the most, I mean, the winners from Niche vs Designer.

    Suggestions of trios for competition can be made.




    So, the first round maybe a hard one: Diptyque Volutes, Serge Lutens Chergui or By Kilian Back to Black?

    Haven't tried the other two, but Back to Black is an absolute masterpiece. So it gets my vote

    That's the problem with these kinds of polls. How can you choose which one is best if you've only tried one of the three?

    Guys, I think it would be a good idea to state the house beside the fragrance,
    not all BNr's can recognise the frag from just the name, let alone having access to it in the firts place

    e.g. a post would go: "I like CdG a lot"
    a newbie reads the post and thinks "what on earth is this CdG"?

    I think in this case, most people can deduce that B2B = Back to Black.

    Interesting results, so far!

    Salim96, I must say you´re right. I´ve written the house of each fragrance in post 1.

    Voted back to black by accident when meant to vote for Chergui...Chergui to me is better then TV or any in this specific list to vote for in its specific genre...
