    Lots of good things IMO. Must have over 30. Ones to look for are: Cher Wood, Ambre Lumiere and Secret Sucre from their exclusive line.

    Yes, it is a good and venerable house, with fragrances that are very affordable. My favorite is their classic, Habanita - in production since the 1920s. The current reformulation is excellent.

    Thanks hednic. Do you think this house is as interesting as let say Comme De Garcons, or any other house(s) that you can think of ?

    I'd say on par with Galimard or Fragonard, maybe a step better. Good quality for an affordable price.

    Great house !
    I have a number of releases from them.
    My two most recent being Cuir & Ambre in their Eau de Parfum line.
    Both are fantastic .
    Cuir being in almost the same class of Amouage & Ambre reminding me of Serge Lutens Amber with a twist .
    I would recomend these two as blind buys with confidence .
    cheers

    Molinard Homme I and Habanita — two good ones.

    Homme I currently is available online at great prices, low enough to consider it a safe blind buy. Packaging is nice, too.

    Their Patchouli is among my summer staples since years (own several of the older bottles, though, don't know if this one has changed). It's my favourite patchouli by far. Fresh but earthy.

    They have rebottled and repackaged several of their fragrances, and it's very time-consuming to figure out which is which.

    Habanita is one of the most stinking perfumes I’ve ever tried. Tried some other things I don’t even remember. Nothing special to me.

    I really enjoy this house.

    Habanita and Les Amoureux de Peynet (a slightly aromatic and lightly citrusy-sweet unisex citrus scent with a light punch of ginger) is what I own, love and wear the most. I also like Habanita L'Esprit (a super soft cashmere-like musky scent, just beautiful; comparable with Narciso Rodriguez scents in tone), Cuir (a lovely spicy leather), Sher Wood (a light woody beauty), Vanille Fruitee (an amazing monster gourmand), Figue (a pretty citrusy figue scent), Vanille Patchouli.

    Teck is another good one. A soft, woody blend. I get compliments when I wear it. Go slow on the trigger, though. Start with just one spray.

    Liking especially Habanita (also its flankers), but also the unisex EDTs in the bottle shapes depicted above, including their Vanilla and Patchouli ones

    I love this house. They have a unique way with floral notes that gives all their scents a weightless feel, and all their scents seem to floral notes in them. I suppose it's part of their signature as a Grasse brand. If you can't stand florals at all then steer clear. Cuir and Oud Magnetique are great male/unisex scents.
