With the explosion of niche houses in recent years (not to mention the hefty output from mainstream firms), it’s nearly impossible to try everything that’s out there. And sometimes in the great crush of new releases, even entire lines can get overlooked.
I was browsing Luckyscent and other fragrance sites recently and realized that I’d never tried anything by Histoires de Parfums, Heeley or Etat Libre d’Orange (and there are probably more that just didn’t register with me, but I’ll realize later). I hadn’t made a conscious choice to avoid them or anything, it just never came about (except I think that maybe I have a little mental block about Secretions Magnifiques 😉 ).
Anyway, one of these days, I’m going to rectify this, get a whole-house sampler and go to town!
What about you? Are there any fragrance lines that you’ve never tried but would like to? Perhaps you’ve just discovered a favorite scent from one and are looking to explore the rest. Or, at the other extreme, is there one house that you just avoid?
