Now that we have a few fragrance heads here in the forum, I’m curious:

What’s your favourite fragrance brand ?

Which fragrance brand is the most popular in you collection, meaning which brand do you own the most number of bottles from ?

It’s a tough one for me.

I think my favourite brand is Dior overall followed closely by Creed and Bond No. 9, quite a bit after that will follow Hermés, Guerlain and Chanel.

My bottle count from my collection:

Dior 17 fragrances
Bond No. 9 16 fragrances
Hermés 12 fragrances
Creed 12 fragrances
Chanel 12 fragrances
Guerlain 11 fragrances
YSL 11 fragrances
Acqua Di Parma 10 fragrances
Commes des Garçon 10 fragrances
Amouage 8 fragrances
Penhaligons 8 fragrances
Cartier 8 fragrances
Bvlgari 8 fragrances (but relegated 4 of these to the bathroom, so not really in my collection per se)
Xerjoff 6
Tom Ford 6

There's a lot of niche brands I like but the most consistently amazing smelling, well constructed and long lasting
ones are from Maison Francis Kurkdjian.

I only own 4 fragrances from MFK, however I think I own at least 10 fragrances made my Kurdijan as a perfumer. He’s a great perfumer.

I Profumi di Firenze.

very small brand out of Florence that I discovered when I visited the city.  All are perfume strength..rare for citrus fragrances.  Their forte includes Italian citruses,  Florentine lavender and real Indian Mysore Sandalwood.  Not complex fragrances, but incredibly fresh and natural.


followed by:

Creed
Guerlain
DR Harris

Hope you are well my Viking friend!

I also enjoy using scents that are from some of my favorite scented soaps, although I wouldn't consider them in the same league as the above fragrances, such as Truefitt & Hill 1805 and Apsley, DR Harris Arlington and Windsor, Floris No. 89, Carthsia Uomo, Irisch Moos, Steam Punk, Alvarez Gomez, and Castle Forbes 1445.

My most owned by brand:

Dior 9
Xerjoff 7
Creed 5
YSL 5
Roja 4
MFK 4 (this is a house I'm still exploring and I can see this number going up)

I would say Dior, YSL and Mugler are probably my favourite designers. Xerjoff, Creed, Roja and MFK my favourite niche. 

Some honorable mentions: Amouage, Penhaligon's, Parfums de Marly, Kilian, Tom Ford.

Claus with the amount of gear you list out, plus the bushels of stuff I've seen you sell off, I always imagine that your shave den must be the size of my whole house   Cool

I’m not a user of perfume, e de t, or cologne as such, but I do use an alcohol-based aftershave splash after every shave.  My preferred brands are very traditional: TOBS, GFT, Harris, and AV.  For TOBS I like in particular Sandalwood and Victorian Limes; for GFT it’s Wellington; for Harris it’s Arlington, which is my overall favourite; and for AV it’s Ice Blue and Classic Sport.  Outside of these I like Tabac, Fine American Blend and Alt Innsbruck.  At the moment I have on hand a bottle of Prada Luna Rossa and Dior Sauvage.  Both are disappointing in that they are horribly expensive and the scent disappears very quickly even for aftershaves.

To be honest imaginary authors is my current favorite , each fragrance so unique and satisfying for me , with three ( memoirs of a trespasser, a city on fire , and cape heartache ) being some of my absolute favorite fragrances of all time. That aside I like Dior , Chanel , and I’m not afraid to admit I was an aqua di Gio fanatic and still love profumo so add Armani to my list.
