Thank you to everyone who wrote in the topic about me. Of course ,I started with a Balafre, but it was a long time ago. So I started my real hobby with perfumery ..exactly 6 years ago :)

Are you collecting both modern and vintage fragrances? I was looking at the names mentioned.
I like modern more than vintage fragrances. There are brands that I love very much now, for example -Zoologist \ Olympic Orchids artisan but I don’t have in my collection oops). I usually buy what I like (even if the reviews are bad on fragrance)

You should consider Rogue Perfumery. It's a recent house that has an emphasis on classic style fragrances.

Mousse Illuminee is great. I'd suggest adding others like Chypre-Siam, Tabac Vert, Fougere L'Aube, Bon Monsieur to the try list.
good choice, I'm sure they will interest me, especially these two-Chypre-Siam, Tabac Vert. They have interesting fragrance notes. Another addition to the list is -Flora & Fauna(amber\animalic\mossy\
earthy) and Vetifleur Rogue (iris/powder/wood)

Ahh yes Flora & Fauna is another gem, that was instant like when I first sampled it.

Other non-chypre scents like Derviche is great. It's a sweet tobacco scent. Jasmine Antique is great if you like jasmine.

unfortunately I don’t like jasmine (it suffocates me), but I like chypres the same, but so far from everything that I have tried, my favorite is Lippizan from Parfums de Marly , I like soft chypres. And I’m sure Flora & Fauna is an interesting fragrance.
