Donna Karan, Fuel. While not niche, this one is at the high end of designers and it's only sold at Neiman's, which means it's as uncommon as niche scents. Oh, and it smells FANTASTIC.

4. Santal 33
5. Tonka Imperial
6. Pure Malt
7. Jubilation XXV
8. L'air Du Desert Marocain

Eutopie # 2
Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.
Invasion BarbareThese. Both would be great signatures in GA. FILA!!Dior Bois d'Argent (technically a designer, but with niche level quality IMO)
Serge Lutens "Chène"
"Thank GOD for the nose, for without it we would not be enjoying these beautiful created Scents" also Remember "Balance is everything and the key to appreciating "
French Lover (bois d'orage)
Year round: would recommend something by MFK (Lumiere noire, apom) since it is very "user friendly" (think high-end designer aesthetic); Amyris would fit the bill but it is really "designer-ish" so it might defeat the purpose of getting a niche scent.
Otherwise, Penhaligon's Sartorial is great for everyday wear; I love IB personally but I think it projects too much for the people around me and I get self-conscious wearing it.
Frank No. 2 is another niche crowd pleaser.

MFK Lumiere Noire
Amouage Ciel Man
AdP Colonia Essenza
Lubin Le Vetyver - Itasca
...and yes, the obvious omission: Creed Aventus

MFK Pluriel (masculine)
Cartier Declaration Essense
Eau des Baux
Cartier is Designer BUT I think Declaration could easily flip the bill as a niche type scent.

1.) MFK Baccarat Rouge 540
2.) Frank no. 2 LA
3.) MFK Pluriel Masculine
4.) Creed Aventus
5.) Creed Spice and Woods

8.) MFK Oud
9.) Itasca - Lubin
