    several, including Vero Profumo, Maitre Parfumeur Et Gantier, Serge Lutens, Parfumerie Generale, Etat Libre D'Orange, Humiecki & Graef…others…

    amongst the *newcomers*, Masque, Unum, Nu_Be.

    I also appreciate several *indie / artisanal* perfume houses such as Pekji, Slumberhouse, Papillon, Angela Ciampagna, Sonoma Scent Studio, Abdes Salaam's La Via Del Profumo, Bogue...

    Creed but Amouage and Profumum Roma is creeping up on it. May end up #3 before the end of the year right above Bond no.9

    I'm not much into house loyalty, but if asked to name a single favorite house right now, I'd no doubt say Roja Parfums. And that's in spite of the whole pretentious luxury schtick, which I'm not a fan of. Over the last year, three of his fragrances (Fetish pour Homme, Scandal pour Homme and Vetiver Extrait) have simply taken me to new levels of olfactory enjoyment.
    For swap/sale: Fougère Royale, AdP Colonia Club, Tauer Lonesome Rider, MDCI Cuir Garamante, vintage Tiffany for Men, 1 Million Intense, Montale Cuir D'Arabie, Bentley Intense, Prada Amber PH Intense, Prada Amber PH metal travel spray, Loewe PH, M7 gel, Roma (women's), Obsession, others.

    It's a tie between Tom Ford's Private Blends and Amouage. Both lines offer some amazing fragrances, and have something diverse to offer.

    Normally I'd say Tom Ford Private Blend, Creed, or by Kilian. But Slumberhouse is making it's way to the top of my list. And it's a "true" niche house.

    Currently I'd say:
    Sultan Pasha Attars
    Zoologist
    Bogue

    Vero Profumo
    Slumberhouse

    Frederic Malle. My 1st encounter was Portrait of a Lady, and I was not a fan of it. I hope it convinced me to love rose scent, but I just cannot. I tried at the same time dans tes bras and was also not big fan. BUT, later on, I tried Geranium pour monsieur, Carnal Flower, French Lover and Musc Ravageur. All were love/wow factors and that does not happen much with me. Close would be Diptyque and Parfum d'Empire (great diversity in scents, great price and still great quality -- Diptyque maybe a bit less for some, but still super solid stuff).

    Irony in this all is, I do not own a bottle of any of them! Only samples (but that is about to change soon once I finish some bottles)

    Creed - Even though I'm disappointed in what they've put out in the last several years (new releases and releases still being produced), they did make some wonderful creations during the height of their success.

    Maybe Serge Lutens. Because it is affordable and creative. Also, I love the photos Serge Lutens takes. They are so mysterious!

    I was not sure if we can consider Guerlain niche but if yes it is definitely one I would mention too!
