    Way too many for me, but two come to mind:

    Thameen - Green Pearl
    Boadicea - Jubilee
    **Both great bright unisex summer freshies


    Agarwood Assam - Oud Patchouli
    **The first oud oil I've tried in a long time that's instantly "agreeable" with a western nose and easily enjoyable.

    Recently? Hmm. I'll go by the past few months or so..

    Ivory Route, Chypre Palatin, and Sycomore EdP (perhaps? familiar with vetiver, but this was for what I 'wanted').

    The only things I can think of that I have tried this year and loved right away were a few blind-buy flankers of scents that I already loved:

    by Kilian - Straight to Heaven Extreme
    Orlov - Star of the Season Elixir

    Everything else I have tried this year has been a "like" at best.
    Current Summer Favorites:

    1. Xerjoff - Nio
    2. Tom Ford - Rive d’Ambre
    3. Dior - Homme Cologne 2013
    4. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
    5. Armani - Code Sport Athlete
    6. Montale - Aoud Legacy
    7. Dior - Homme Sport 2008
    8. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
    9. Ermenegildo Zegna - Sicilian Mandarin
    10. Creed - Pure White Cologne

    Hey,

    Just to note, my favorite fragrance in ever is not one that I immediately bought because it is a fragrance with a journey from opening to drydown, but the opening is still nice. It wasn't until I tried it with a full wearing that it became #1 for me (Creed Spice & Wood)

    Otherwise:
    -Creed has a large number of scents that please many noses. Green Irish Tweed, Original Vetiver, Selection Verte and Royal Water were immediately loved by me, but the other 6 Creeds I own took more than one evaluation to really enjoy).

    -A large number of Acqua di Parma scents are mass-pleasing and easy to instantly like IMO for a lot of people. I liked MOST of their scents from the Colonia and Blu Mediterraneo lineups instantly, but cannot justify buying them all for various reasons including cost, but also some redundancy.

    -Acqua di Gio Profumo (although I smelled eariler than the 'eureka' moment, my nose didn't work the first time I smelled it, the second time was an immediate 'buy')

    -Clive Christian 1872 for men

    -Terre d'Hermes EDT

    -Tommy Hilfiger Cologne back in the 90's well before my interest in fragrances won me over instantly and it was the scent of my youth.

    -Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Eau Intense

    -Ralph Lauren Safari

    Those are the ones that stand out. But don't underestimate the scents that you don't immediately 'get'. Some of those could end up your favorites.

    If I define "love" as "FBW on first sniff", then all of these, although #3 was a roll of the dice (blind buy). I've bought all of these new except Fahrenheit Parfum.

    Add me as another on Elysium. Also, recently tried A&F Hempstead and now I have a bottle on its way. Smelled great.

    I liked Nishane Hacivat as soon as I sampled it, and it was enough to buy a bottle. It was really the only Nishane I cared for out of a variety of samples I ordered.

    BondNo9.com (the fragrance)

    Others....

    Kilian Straight to Heaven Splash of Lemon

    Bois 1920 Real Patchouly

    Art of Shaving Sandalwood Essential Oil

    I order a lot of samples of Floris fragrances and wound up liking many of them....enough to order 7 bottles, including Vetiver, Santal, Mahon Leather, JF, Jermyn Street, 1962, and 1976.
    Basenotes sales: Tiffany for Men Concen, de Bachmakov, Atelier Vetiver Fatal, Tiffany for Men mini, 17 Cuba Paris frags, L'Essence de Cerruti, Reyane Insurrection, numerous popular SAMPLES! http://www.basenotes.net/threads/419...ples-amp-More!

    Crystal Flacon sales: Prelude to Love, Noir de Noir, SAMPLES! http://flacon.ambaric.net/viewtopic.php?t=626

    Depends on what you mean by "recently."

    Within the last year or so, I would say Naja, MEM, Majan Attar, Dryad, and Russian Musk.

    I absolutely loved Xerjoff Nio. I got a sample of it and I’m glad it was just a sample. It lasted about an hour and a half and then it totally disappeared. I would have purchased a full bottle within 10 minutes of putting it on, but not after the scent completely vanished.

    I can’t afford to re-apply a Xerjoff fragrance every couple of hours.

    Here in Moscow, I recently tried and loved Lemon Line, by Mancera. I also tried Oud Satin Mood on skin, where I'd previously only smelled it briskly on paper; this time, I loved it, as it was much less feminine and came off very well on my skin. Maybe I'll get a 10ML decant, as that candied oud only needs one spray to last the whole day. I tried many new scents, but those were the ones that I loved.

    Roja Vetiver Parfum!

    Instant WOW! (despite the fact that I was already familiar with TF Grey Vetiver EDP - the Roja has some additional notes that make all the difference)

    Most recent would be At The Barber's by Maison Martin Margiela.

    I liked it so much I bought a bottle after sampling it twice (from a decant) in one week.
