    The response count doesn't work because half the responses were prior to Portrait of a Lady being on the market.

    I visited Shanghai for work this week. They have many different fragrance shops I have never seen before! For example, Frederic Malle, Kilian, and so on. I tried so many new ones! From Frederic Malle, I like these:

    French Lover
    Le Parfum de Therese
    Musc Ravageur
    Portrait of a Lady

    And I want to try these next. I did not see some of them there:

    Carnal Flower
    Iris Poudre
    L'Eau d'Hiver

    Une Fleur de Cassie
    Superstitious

    and then....

    I enjoy the concept of Bigarade Concentree it just falls apart on skin. I love the opening of Iris Poudre, but the drydown has an element to it that makes me think of buffalo sauce. Musc Ravaguer is fantastic, but it also lacks that it factor -- I'd wear it all the time if it was cheap, but at $250 a pop it just doesn't work for me. Carnal Flower is beautful, but doesn't work on my skin


    So I'd have to go with The Night coming in at #3.

    Hard for me because I can objectively name what I think are their three best in terms of composition and significance but I realized those three are completely different from the top 3 I wear.

    Personal top 3:
    French Lover
    Eau de Magnolia
    En Passant

    Objective top 3:
    Musc Ravageur
    Portrait of a Lady
    Carnal Flower

    Hard for me to pick 3, but if I could pick only 1 then it would be Musc Ravageur.

    Really hard to choose, so I won't.

    I only wish they would offer the Desert Gems line in the 10ml bottles.

    I also really like Monsieur but have only tested it once so don't feel like I could've justified putting it in the top 3.

    Also showing some love for Music for a While, very unusual pineapple and lavender concoction.

    I haven't smelled many from FM, but Musc Ravageur is probably my favorite fragrance of all time.

    Hard to choose just three (so I will cheat by listing runners up). So many good and distinct fragrances from this house.

    Noir Epices
    Carnal Flower
    The Moon

    Runner Ups: The Night, Geranium Pour Monsieur, POAL, Monsieur., French Lover

    As a man, my top would be:
    - French Lover
    - Musc Ravageur


    However, I think there are many more gems in the range that are suitable for women as well or are suitably unisex. These are bound to feature in a top 3 list:
    - Carnal Flower
    - Portrait of a Lady

    Except Outrageous, I have liked everything from FM. Top three from the main line would be Noir Epices, Monsieur and Une Rose.

    I find them all unwearable. At one time I did wear Monsieur quite a bit but eventually grew tired of the boring incense and woods in the base
