    7 years of releases? That's a lot! I'd have to go back and look at release dates on some.
    Right away, I would say Gucci Guilty Absolute and Tom Ford Noir Anthracite. I consider TF's sig line as designer.

    Three votes for TF Noir Anthracite, and two for Cartier L'Envol!!!

    Agree on both, and both seem quite different from the typical new release.....

    Among many others, in no particular order:

    seconding ADG Profumo
    seconding also all Franck Boclet ones released during this time interval
    seconding l'Envol as well
    D&G The One EDP
    l'Homme Ideal Cologne
    several AMen flankers including Pure Tonka and Ultra Zest
    TF Noir Extreme
    Chanel Chance EDP

    surprisingly, had (at least personally) good experiences with Eau Sauvage Parfum 2017, just enough to consider this worth mentioning too

    same with almost anything from Zadig&Voltaire

    A lovely list.

    When compiling my list, I forgot about Lush!

    I'm delighted to see so much support for L'Envol EDP, which is peculiar enough to be polarizing (just look at the wide variety of responses in reviews) but deserves credit for its very unique concept. I've not encountered anything else like that luminous, ethereal honey note.
