    Noble 1942 is worth checking out.

    If you have to ask... it shouldn't matter. Would it change anything?


    Of course they use "a lot". They all do. No one here has the formula to any of these fragrances, so it's all speculation. It's all about how it smells. Does it smell good or not?

    Personally I am a huge fan of some by Kilian scents. If I found out they were 100% natural, it wouldn't change how much I liked them. If I found out they were 100% synthetic, they would smell the same to me. In fact, knowing my favorites are synthetic would be better, since it would be less likely to suffer from batch variations or forced-reformulation from the IFRA.
    Current Winter Favorites:

    1. House of Matriarch - Blackbird
    2. Brückner - Aoud 1
    3. Creed - Royal Oud
    4. Stéphane Humbert Lucas 777 - Generation Man
    5. Armani Privé - Oud Royal
    6. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
    7. Stéphane Humbert Lucas 777 - Mortal Skin
    8. Ormonde Jayne - Black Gold
    9. Creed - Royal English Leather
    10. by Kilian - Cruel Intentions

    This +100. All of them use synthetics and this topic has been done to death in recent months on the site. Dougczar's post above expressed it better than I could.
