I really, really enjoy the Anima Dulcis. It would be so easy to get that chili note wrong, but it's blended perfectly with the vanilla and cocoa. It's sweet, but it's qualitatively different from the kinds of sweetness that are typical in gourmands.
Also, I think Chypre Palatin is a masterpiece. I don't have a consistent and well-defined top five, but Chypre Palatin would certainly be close. I like it much better than Invasion Barbare, which is the MDCI that gets all the attention.
I'm wearing Dries van Noten for my eveningtime scent. This is better for cooler weather, but I like it so much that I wanted to wear it now. This was one of those rare love at first smell scents. Reading reviews online, it looks like lots of other people are pretty indifferent about it.
