    Personally, I think there's only two that deserve the attention: Rose 31 and Patchouli 24.

    The stars are in the city exclusive line in my opinion, sadly.

    Patchouli is perhaps the most distinctive, so I'd try to put it in.
    Several others are worth trying. My favorites are Oud (dirty musky) and Ylang Ylang (as per name). But the iris is also worth.

    If you like aquatics (I don't) there's Neroli.

    I voted for:

    - Rose 31
    - Oud 27
    - Bergamote 22

    ...but, whooo, it was a tough debate. I really wanted to put Patchouli 24 in there too. The only reason I didn't is that I'm not sure I could actually wear it, so I went with Bergamote 22 instead as my 3rd choice.

    My vote in order was,

    Rose 31
    Bergamote 22
    Vetiver 46

    I think, and this is only my opinion, Rose 31 is the best of Le Labo and should be included when seeking out this house. In full disclosure, it's in my top 3 all time favorite scents!

    I'd say Rose 31, and then a toss up of Santal, Vetiver, Patchouli, or Oud. Steer away from Fleur d'Oranger like your life depends on it, it's awful.

    But really it all depends on your taste.

    If you enjoy the challenging aspect of the spectrum then Labdanum 18 & Oud 27.

    Since you already enjoy Patchouli 24 I picked Oud 27, Rose 31, and Labdanum 18.

    Rose 31 is the only one I have tried from this line. It is a very nice green/dewy type rose fragrance, unisex, not feminine, very well made, even full bottle worthy if you have the money.
    My Current Top 10:

    Rive Gauche Light (2004)
    Fahrenheit (1988)
    Paul Smith Man (2009)
    Burberry London (2006)

    I voted Santal 33, Vetiver 46 and Iris 39 because I don't have much experience with these yet and they would be my next three to try.

    If you are looking for recommendations, though, I already bought Patchouli 24, Oud 27 and Labdanum 18 because I love them.

    Vanille 44 is their best imo. If you don't consider the price. And I have heard that their Tubereuse 40 is quite promising too.

    Default You are ordering a Discovery Set of 3 from Le Labo: Which do you choose?

    Knowing your taste Akahina, I'd go for:

    Patch 24
    Oud 27
    Santal 33

    I'm not a big fan of the line in general, but I like a couple of the city exclusive and am a HUGE fan of two of the scents they did for Anthropologie (Belle du Soir and Chant de Bois). With that said, the only one I personally like from the above is Patch 24. Oud 27, Bergamot 22, Iris 39, Labdanum 18 are all okay, and Vetiver 46 is pretty great, but it's essentially 2Man. One thing to keep in mind is that a number of them (not all) smell like completely different scents from what the name designates.

    Thanks for the reccommendations y'all. I was hoping to find out what you would buy, not what you think I should buy. I am actually leaning towards one that has few votes so far.

    My advice is to avoid Santal 33. Worst sandalwood I've ever tried.
    My current top five:

    Tiffany - Tiffany for Men (vtg)
    Yves Saint Laurent - M7 (vtg)
    Fendi - Theorema
    Tom Ford - Tobacco Vanille
    Gucci - Gucci pour Homme

    I was about to choose this combination but I find Rose 31 better than Oud just by a smidgen.

    I respect and like Le Labo quite a bit at this point. Not all their scents are for me, but very few are duds. I'd pick:

    Rose 31
    Oud 27
    Ylang 49

    Rose, Santal, & Vetyver

    However, I haven't tried their Bergamote, thought Patchouli was boring, & also recommend Oud for it's uniqueness.

    One of my selections was labdanum 18 which is IMO the most underrated of the bunch
