    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.

    Santal 33 - Patchouli 24 - Jasmin 17

    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 Ultimate Top 5:

    Fahrenheit (1988)
    24 Platinum (2012)
    Burberry London (2006)
    Eau des Baux (2006)
    Arpege pour Homme (2005)

    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.

    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.
