    Serge Lutens for me. I don't think there is one fragrance from the line I do not like ... and really like to love most of it.
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    Le Labo, their scents fit my DNA perfectly.

    I really don't "care" about the niche or designer thing so I won't set them apart.

    For me the clear and undisputed winner is Guerlain! Whether it is for me and people of my age or older people, I just love what they do! They've created one masterpiece after another.

    I would have to say Chanel. I have four at the moment and will probably be getting a fifth soon. I find a lot of Chanel fragrances to be elegant and a great "bang for the buck!"

    Designer: Dior, because both their classic scents and their Privée collection work for me. I would be completely happy living off of Dior scents for the rest of my life. Honorable mention goes to Chanel, because I think Dior fulfills gamut between "easy to wear but uninteresting and generic" and "douchey and artistic".

    Edit: Also will add that Dior has the widest and wackiest vintage game. So that would be fun. Maybe I'll experiment with just buying diors and see what I come up with.

    Niche: Really tough one. I'm tempted to say Frederic Malle even though I despise many of their fragrances. Now that I think about it, there isn't really a niche brand I gravitate towards.

    I am going to be predictable and common and opt for the Creed...

    I will give you my genuine reasons though...

    GIT
    Aventus
    Millesime Imperial
    Virgin Island Water
    Original Santal
    Original Vetiver
    Pure White Cologne

    For me personally this was a very good reason to choose this house
