    There were many good ones I bought from 2018. Three I really enjoy are Le Passant by Ormaie, Dawn by Frederic Malle, and IV by Le Monarque.
    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.

    So far, was only impressed by the newer (most or all of them 2018 year first releases) by Le Couvent des Minimes,
    most if not all of them quite powerhouse unisex incense-based EDPs

    Stupidly, I did not check out any of the new Maison Christian Diors when I was overseas, and I am really hating myself for that.

    I gotta say, I thought 2017 was a great year. I think this year was terrible.

    The only new release from 2018 that I enjoyed even moderately was Terre d'Hermes Eau Intense Vetiver. I don't know, maybe I slept, maybe I missed the good stuff, but last year I could give you a list of 10 that I really enjoyed, 2016 as well probably. This year, just one.

    That doesn't mean I didn't find new stuff to enjoy in 2018, but nothing that was produced/released this year. Still haven't tried Mefisto Gentiluomo or Bleu Parfum though.


    EDIT: I'll add Balade Sauvage to this. It was by far my favorite release of 2018. I forgot about it.
