    Default top 5 most BEAUTIFUL perfumes you have smelled

    list the top 5 most BEAUTIFUL perfumes you have ever smelled, taking all other factors such as projection,sillage,price,userbility, etc out of the equation. we are just interested in smell here.

    my top 5 so far:

    1. haute luxe - roja parfums

    2. al ghaaliyah - al shareef oudh

    3. tribute - amouage

    4. no.III - le monarque

    5. dahn al oud limited edition 2005 - ajmal
    Anas b. Malik reported that Allah's Apostle (ﷺ) used to come to our house and there was perspiration upon his body. My mother brought a bottle and began to pour the sweat in that. When Allah's Apostle (ﷺ) got up he said:

    Umm Sulaim, what is this that you are doing? Thereupon she said: That is your sweat which we mix in our perfume and it becomes the most fragrant perfume.

    I would agree about (1) Amouage Tribute. I'm curious to try something from Le Monarque.

    I love oak moss as a note, so some of my favorites are older fragrances such as (2) Chanel Pour Monsieur and (3) Guerlain Mitsouko.

    I also like patchouli, so things such as (4) Chanel Antaeus and (5) Histoires de Parfums Patchouli Noir.

    Wow didn't know you like Ummagumma so much.

    I need to revisit Tauer's roses. I remember Incense Rose, but didn't like it at all, a very strong paan accord.

    Original Nina by Nina Ricci

    Lanvin My Sin
    Vintage Narcisse Noir
    The perfume I am wearing always seems like the most beautiful at the time. That would be Mugler Alien edp.

    It's really arbitrary to limit it to five. I can think of so many others...

    #1 Guerlain L’Heure Bleue.

    Mitsouko and Apres L’Ondee. Also echoing Starblind’s picks of Chanel CDR and BDI.

    This was not easy because of no extra slot open for Caron Farnesiana.
