    Very hard to say but it would be a rotation of M7, Montecristo, MKK, Leather Oud, and my new love Absolu Pour Le Soir

    I did Mandragore Pourpre but it did not stop from adding more perfumes.

    Proud owner of Creed's Original Vetiver. Haven't found anything that might surpass it yet, though I shall venture on in search of one better.

    I still consider myself as a novice. I need at least a few more years before I can mention "what's my Holy Grail"...

    Armani Eau pour Homme (luckily in any formulation, so not that tied up in possible reformulation issues).

    Creed Aventus. Parfums De Marly Herod is a close second.

    I've found mine and I think my fragrance journey is over.

    My grail is Dior Homme combined with its 2 flankers, DHI and Valentino Uomo. I ordered another 100mls of both DH and DHI which hopefully should last me awhile. Still have a few Creeds (Aventus,MI,OS,SMW) in my rotation to mix it up. But nothing grabs me like DH and I seem to keep reaching for it.

    I done another sample session today at the boutiques, just to make sure I'm right with my grail choice. Tested Creed White Cologne/Royal Oud, dior sauvage parfum (yuk, couldn't wait to wash this off), YSL L'Homme Parfum Intense, a few ACQUA DI PARMA and Jubilation XXV. After all that nothing comes close to DH.

    I understand, jhericurls, as Dior Homme is in grail territory for me, too. I'm always satisfied when I reach for it, and I reach for it pretty often. If it weren't for others that totally "get" me (including Jubilation XXV -- sorry you didn't care for it), I'd be ready to hand DH the crown. Still, there are just too many out there, and too many true loves, to settle on just one.

    So far, my only 10's are Pure Malt and Polo Black, but neither of them are "holy grails".

    Default Re: Name your Holy Grail. Have you found it yet?

    I would say Rochas Femme. I haven't tried the version in the new bottles however.

    Montana Parfum de peau (then simply Montana) lost the top spot post-reformulation. Add Chanel 19, Diorella, Diorissimo and Magie Noire to that unfortunate list of "spoiled" fragrances normally competing for the top. I still use them happily especially Diorella though but something is missing.

    Bvlgari Green Tea is a very close second and a top favourite in summer.

    I must say that these scents all share the "hooked at first sniff" characteristic. Montana...

    I'll see what they have made of my beloved Eau de Patou!

    As for now, i think i have found it : L'air du desert marocain.

    But i'm sensing that the more i try stuff from Andy Tauer, the more holy grails i will have ....

    I just placed sample orders for : Incense extreme, Incense rose and Orange star. And if any of those turns out to be constructed the same way as LDDM ( which i know they will), then i think i'm a convert .
    Hypocrites will always be a thorn in my back....and my middle finger will always be the best remedy.....

    Don't have one. Appreciate the breadth and depth of the world of fragrance.

    Default Re: Name your Holy Grail. Have you found it yet?

    I can't ever have one parfum / cologne as "the" holy grail...

    On the vintage front - it's probably Bogart Furyo. However, there's way too many vintages that I'm still in search of, so this will always be in the top 10 of my top 100 list (which I'll never make).

    On the current - Slumberhouse Zahd might be the one, again there's way too many I like to anoint one as the holy grail, but this does seem a hair's length ahead of other Slumberhouse's, Amouage's, vtg Bel Ami, NK Incense, vtg Chanel PM & PM Concentree, Antaeus, Or Black, many Guerlain's etc.

    several including Onda, Jicky, Knize Ten, Or Black and Vol De Nuit. I think Bois D'Ascese is gaining a holy grail status day after day...

    I have to agree here - the search is part of the fun.

    Amouage Jubilation XXV might be one of my grails. Have not ordered a full bottle yet, and there are no local dealers here in my area.

    Chanel Bois des Iles, which I found very early in my perfume explorations. It still is the one, although I will never wear it exclusively.

    I think since Bois du Portugal is one that I always come back to, I'd have to say it's my Holy Grail.

    Jubilation XXV is close to that status for me, too. And stargarden, you may want to order from LuckyScent -- great online retailer for things like Amouage. That's how I got mine.

    I haven't found mine yet, but I'm always looking. If I could find something with a fresh/fruity top like Aventus (though it doesn't have to be that same pineapple) plus a rich base like Royal Oud... I'd be in heaven.
    I have a 100ml Gucci Pour Homme 2003 that I'll swap for Reflection Man or De Bachmakov. PM me if interested.

    Dior Homme Intense. I've tried others, many many others, but nothing has come even remotely close to Dior Homme Intense.

    For me, GIT is in my top 7 or 8 favorite of all time. It's a tie for me, between Creed Millesime 1849 and Creed Aventus. I just can't get enough of those scents. After that, GIT, then Royal Oud.
