    Default Which items in your collection do you cherish?

    I have 3 samples, all less than 1ml I am fortunate to enjoy, but sweat a bit when i think of them running dry:

    1. Patou Pour Homme
    2. Tom Ford Moss Breeches
    3. Creed Windsor

    What items do you have in your collection that you absolutely love?

  2. #2

    I love Creed OS too, but dont worry about using it being that I can get it anytime. I guess i meant the rarity and how much you enjoy them being the factor in how much you cherish something in your collection. Incense Rose is gorgeous as well.

    I am seeing Roja Dove Diaghilev garnering much praise. I will have to start looking to sample this ASAP.

    I had a small sample of Dior Vetiver i recently finished (as in yesterday!). I have sampled many vetiver frags, but Dior Vetiver is so damn good and still lingers a bit today. Staying power is great on this one!

    I cherish all the items in my collection but the most meaningful and the one I cherish most is my 30ml Clive Christian No.1 Concentrated Pure Parfum Limited Edition in the Lead Crystal Bottle which was a gift from my oldest son.

    My big bottle of Sous Le Vent. It was a special birthday gift. It's a wonderful fragrance and I'm sentimental about it too.

    1. Interlude Man. It is easily my all time favorite scent to wear. It's bold and it's brash, it's smokey and herbal, but underneath it all is a cozy resinous amber that soothes. I adore the stuff. Even the bottle is a masculine work of art.

    2. L'Air du Desert Marocain. There are times when I'll pick this one up even though I'm going to wear something else just so I can take a moment to sniff the bottle.

    3. Gucci Pour Homme (2003). I love to wear it on a cold winter night when I'm going to stay at home and work on a creative project. The scent takes me somewhere else. Or, maybe I should say, it somehow enables my mind to wander to anyplace else.

    I also love my sample of Lonestar Memories, but I haven't been able to commit to a bottle because I don't think I'd wear it enough to justify the purchase... but that's such a fun sample to have.

    All of them, as I only keep the fragrances I love, giving away all others. That said, probably the O'driùs head up the lest due to their highly limited nature, along with Patou pour Homme Privé, as it too was so rare and difficult to find.
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4)
    Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    Norma Kamali's Incense (1982), for me, is a real standout.

    Bogue Profumo's limited run of Cologne Reloaded.

    Matriarch's Blackbird (largely due to the cost).

    These fragrances are pretty rare and hard to source though not impossible to find and ones I cherish above others:

    Vintage Extract Of Mysore Sandalwood By Crabtree & Evelyn
    Vintage Bel Ami

    Also this long discontinued treasure that is Balenciaga pour Homme. When the surplus stock that is on the market now is gone this is going to be a rare find. Luckily I'm well stocked for the day this becomes a "vintage patou pour homme" in status!

    What's left of my vintage Fahrenheit 6.8 oz bottle. It's probably a little less than half full (looks like less until you turn it sideways). It's not old school vintage, but it's before the current formulation, from 2005. It smells stronger than the current version, but still not as good as vintage-vintage. Still an older formulation is enough to consider it vintage.

    Also, although I hate it and never wear it, Akon Konvict for Men EDP (link to info below). It basically smells like a lemon cleaning solution. The bottle is really unique though, although made poorly; plus I never see it for sale anywhere anymore, so it's getting really hard to find. http://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/A...omme-9974.html

    Another is a flanker to Candies, called Candies Cream for Men. I can't find info on this anywhere, it's literally unheard of. It was a limited edition flanker I bought at Kmart, looks the same as the Candies style bottle, only instead of fading from green to blue, it fades from yellow to orange, and has a red cap. The atomizer on it broke, or maybe the bottle broke, I can't remember specifically, but I have what's left of it in a 30 ml atomizer. It actually smells pretty good, sort of like plums, vanilla, florals, sandalwood. Because of its rarity, it's something more valuable to me.
    My Ultimate Top 5:

    Fahrenheit (1988)
    A*Men Ultra Zest (2015)
    Burberry London (2006)
    Eau des Baux (2006)
    Arpege pour Homme (2005)
