All perfumeurs have something good to offer, for each person. If I don't like violets, I can't say that violet perfumes are bad or that the nose that created a violet perfume is untalented...
I don't have too many perfumes just by one nose in my wardrobe. I just keep what I wear.
If I were to collect though, I'd gather a lot of Lubin, Rance 1795, F.Kurkdjian, Hermes, Bois 192o, Guerlain. So I'd have a lot of perfumes created by noses working for these houses, so you could say those are some favourites.
But it's not too relevant, since I have some fragrances I find stunning from noses by which I don't like/have any other perfume.
Also not relevant because most of the times, perfumeurs are not given the posibility to express their talent too much, they're given certain limited possibilities. Sometimes, by the same nose we can find a less than average perfume for a cheaper- or more commercial brand, and an absolute unique beauty for another perfume house. So you see, you can't judge their talent so simple, or think "oh, I don't like any of his/her creations so far, so I won't try this either"- you might be missing out a lot.
