    Default Do any of these stand out?

    Hello everyone, Zhang Fan here again. Today I made a list of available fragrances and their prices. I didn't change the cost into dollars. But I think you can still see how expensive they are to each other. The red are ones I haven't tried before. Do any of them stand out?

    Chanel Coco 50ml - 150-180
    Chanel Egoiste, 100ml – 300
    Chanel No. 19 EDP, 30/35ml – 230
    Dior Eau Sauvage Parfum, 100ml – 580
    Dior Feve Delicieuse, 30ml – 230
    Guerlain Habit Rouge, 100ml – 300-330
    Guerlain L’Heure Bleue, 75ml – 400-430-450
    Guerlain Samsara, 30ml – 230-255
    Guerlain Samsara, 50ml – 320
    Guerlain Samsara, 100ml – 390
    Guerlain Shalimar, 50ml – 230
    Guerlain Shalimar, 90ml – 350
    Guerlain Vol de Nuit, 100ml – 268
    Kiehl’s Original Musk, 50ml - 180
    L’Artisan Parfumeur La Chasse aux Papillons, 100ml – 450

    Shalimar is one of my favorite fragrances.

    Feve is gorgeous and on my wish list. A sweet gourmand but not sickly sweet in my opinion.

    Chanel Coco is lovely too I love having it in my collection.

    Egoiste is nice and I might get it for my boyfriend. Can't go wrong with it.

    These stand out to me:


    Chanel Egoiste, 100ml – 300
    Dior Eau Sauvage Parfum, 100ml – 580
    Dior Feve Delicieuse, 30ml – 230
    Guerlain Habit Rouge, 100ml – 300-330
    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.

    I never liked Eau Sauvage Parfum, and that kind of aspirational pricing (double Egoiste!) is disappointing.

    The original poster can take home Egosite and the Prada and have 50 left over for pints, compared to the Dior.

    Many good ones in the list. Egoiste seems like a good price quality ratio.

    The only thing that stands out for me is the pricing...That said, if it's vtg Egoiste, I'll shell out 300. None others unless I can see physical evidence of them being vintage...

    What is the original currency?
    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.

    My preference and recommendation would be Chanel Egoiste followed by No 19 and Eau Sauvage. I too would wonder what the original currency is.

    Definitely Eau Sauvage Pafum, Egoiste, and LaNuit.

    Sadly, I'm still not familiar with any of the Guerlain, other than Ideal Cool, which smelled like plastic toys, lol

    I love Eau Sauvage Parfum as long as you are referring to the 2017 release. Someone started a thread last year praising it as an unexpected gem...an all-time favorite. I can’t find the thread by searching, but it’s a frequent use for me. I enjoy the bright green elemi accord quite a bit.

    I'd call it an all time favorite. It would be hard for anyone to argue that it shouldn't be up there in the top ten or twenty of all time.
