    Way too many 2019 fragrances I bought that I love to list for me, so I'll just list three I currently enjoy:

    Patchouli 1973 by Chabaud
    Nuit De Sable by BDK Parfums
    Santal Volcanique by Maison Crivelli

    Very little so far released in 2019 that I have sniffed has impressed...

    *This* one was a big winner, however...

    The Moon by Frederic Malle

    I also think Fougere L’Aube and Flos Mortis by Rogue, and Plumeria de Orris by Areej le Dore all worth honorable mentions, as they smelled quite good as well.

    Edit: One late-breaking honorable mention goes to Gold by Puredistance. I only just got a sample, but already am falling for it. The Moon still is the best 2019 release I have sniffed, but this one might be a surprise runner-up.

    Well, it's nothing wrong with his writing so my guess is that he can read as well. He may have missed the "release" part and just listed his favorites of this year though.

    For myself I can't think of a single 2019 release that I can consider a favorite. I have more been looking back this year. I know I've tried a new from Valentino - Born in Roma, and a JPG - Le Beau. Of two tried they might the best two, but hardly in any other list.

    EDIT: Thanks for the link, Trauerkraut! It was interesting to see the releases of this year. I have been wanting a list like that.

    ive tried as far as I remember

    sauvage
    donna born in roma
    le beau
    beau de jour
    explorer

    dodo
    fougere l'aube
    k

    I liked k and explorer enough to buy them, but they are cheap and cost little. add in beau de jour and I guess that's my favorites.
    It’s tragic to think that heroic man’s great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.

    Although I don't own it (yet), I'd say Fougere L’Aube.

    I did think Eau de Minthe would work for me as a 2019 release, but alas I found the DHM too much for my nose.

    1. Issey Miyake Pulse of the Night (by far!)

    2. Armani Acqua di Gio Absolu Instinct
    3. Givenchy Gentleman Cologne

    Aramis Special Blend, a really great follow-up to Aramis Tobacco Reserve (2018).

    I wasn't floored by anything that came out this year. I did enjoy Amouage Overture, Maison Margiela Coffee Break, and Tom Ford Metallique.

    PdM Kalan and Memo Winter Palace were both full bottle buys for me as far as 2019 releases go.

    Aventus Cologne, Replica Coffee Break, and D&G K were fragrances that I liked fine and have enjoyed sampling, but haven't made their way to my purchase list.

    I liked these ones -

    Eau de Minthe
    Beau de Jour

    Gentle Fluidity (Silver) isn't bad either.

    Very curious to try The Moon.

    Byredo Sundazed . . It’s difficult to imagine this one so close to Winter but during the height and sunny broadcast of Summer I really enjoyed the outdoors wearing it at a number of special/cultural events. Eventually I would start bringing an atomizer as friends began copping it too. Still, overall there’s not a lot of love for Byredo around here.

    Other than that my acquisitions and trials were from other years. The closest that came to 2019 for me would be Louis Vuitton Au Hasard (2018) which I’m really enjoying, and the less godless Dior Sauvage EdP (2018) which I’ve managed to get into my rotation with a little guilty pleasure.

    Although none of these are on my (very small) wish list, I thought these fragrances where really good and I definitely wouldn't mind ending up with a bottle of these:
    Papillon Artisan Perfumery - Bengale Rouge
    Rogue - 40 Rogue
    Rogue - Fougere L'Aube
    Guerlain - Bois Mystérieux
    Guerlain - Cuir Intense

    So far, tested and found few fragrances from 2019 did enjoy-however there were some definitely good experiences, mainly but not exclusively some of the recent unisex EDC and incense based EDP releases by Le Couvent des Minimes
