What is the best male fragrance ever made?:thumbsup:
What is the best male fragrance ever made?:thumbsup:
this is very subjective and there are very few, if at all, people who can name only one. There are many scents in the market, designers and niche that I like and I can't really say that there is one ultimate. Of course, some are better than others and most ppl may generally agree that Cool Water can't compete with Chanel Antaeus for instance, or Azzaro PH etc.
There are those that are trying to find holy grail of scent, but when and IF ever found, it is a holy grail to them only.
From scientific, chemist aspect - mayhaps there is the best one existing, and such contains perfect ingredients in best proportion or ratio.
I myself enjoy a lot of fragrances and adore vareity, so I don't care if there is one best ever made. Mayhaps there is and was worn by Egyptian Pharaoh 2500 B.C., or maybe Babylonian kings. Ancient peoples loved perfumes and perfumery is very old craft. We'd be surprised what creations ppl made in those ancient times! That is what I would like to find out and smell :)
Thanks for your response ZGB
I think I heard that Creed, being the official perfumer of the Chalcolithic period, are taking one of their scents out of the vault from this period for a special edition too. The most famous of which is called Vaisseau Cuivre. It's made, of course with only the finest natural ingredients and smells just like a copper pot! Although, I think it's considered unisex....
I thought we answered this question last week - Cool Water.
Strictly subjectively, Armani PH is still the best for me
Britney Spears for Men.
Point is, what you think is attractive is absolutely repulsive for others.
(And no, Britney Spears for Men is not a fragrance. If it is, I'm unaware of it!)
I'm hung up on Mazzolari Lui so that's my vote for the century.
The best male fragrance ever made is whoever wins Basenotes March Madness 2010! Of course this will change next year... ;)
this is like asking who is the best father in the world
Seriously, Angiesdeboy, there is no answer to your questions since tastes are very personal, more even so when we are dealing with scents. The way olfactory perception works makes scents trigger memories, so in this case, associations can make a fragrance be a favourite or a despised one, independently of the craft of the perfumist or the quality of ingredients used. Or better still, someone may have a prefered scent becoming a despised one due to associations established between that scent an events that person lived through related to it.
The answer would be: that one that you love.
No idea which is the best. It would be far easier to say which isn't lol ;)
Thanks to all who responded to this question! I apoligize if this question has been brought up prior.
Hi ANGIESDOEBOY, I have spent the last 30 minutes trying to come up with something for you're Post and all I get is a Headache and my eyes hurt. I can't answer this. Sorry, really tried. But great question nontheless
childrens tears, hands down.
wow what a can of worms this presents!!!!
to me fragrance is such a personal thing and cannot be catergorized with a blanket...this is the best ever
however there are be worn atcertain charateristics/personalities/growth of maturity that most fragrances can
be worn at.ie a refined 'sporty'gent may better suit a 'nautical or 'sporty'smell
whereas a high pressued exec.might wish for a 'controlled,yet unique,spicey/mossy wood'type
We could all tell you our favorite of all time, but then you'd get hundreds of different answers. It's a bit like the "What Scents Do Women Dig" sticky....over time, everything shows. The beauty of that thread it is that it has gone on so long, pretty much all the scents are mentioned at least once.
Some may say Cool Water or Curve, while others who are more into reading GQ magazine will say Fierce or Antidote. I think the better question is "What is your number one favorite?" Mine is Fahrenheit, hands down. Asking what the "best" cologne is is like asking what the best pizza is.. opinions aren't facts. As opposed to asking what the best car on the road is -- which can be backed up.
It is not a difficult question. It depends on who you ask. The question is, therefore, what is the best fragrance in your estimation?
whatever I like wearing for the day
So, the guy asked which is the best male fragrance ever made, and because you all feel very super smart, you didn't answer him because it's subjective. Well exactly, it's subjective, and he asks for your opinion.
My answer is : Green Irish Tweed (at the moment) (constantly changing)
The best overall is Ambre Narguile which is marketed as a unisex.
The best male marketed scent is Dior's Fahrenheit.
My subjective view is that Habit Rouge makes a good benchmark. If one looks upon perfumery as Art, one instinctively knows that 'best' is not possible, and certainly not desirable. It's as if saying: this is the furthest you'll ever get at life, you might as well stop now.
[QUOTE=The_Cologneist;1788733]. I think the better question is "What is your number one favorite?"
I guess you could say what ever my wife digs on me! Silver Mountain Water and Fumeri Turque
I don't know why i like ONE MAN SHOW so much. maybe because my father used to wear it. and with it i come back when i had 9 years old.
So i say ONE MAN SHOW is 20th century Fragrance !! and 21th !
Private Collection Tabarome.
Yes, this is almost impossible to answer, but here goes:
Paco Rabanne Pour Homme
Why? Because for me it embodies perfectly everything I look for in a masculine scent: it's timeless, manly, strong, smooth, long lasting, perfectly balanced. It also happens to be the fragrance I'd pick if God told me that I could only wear one fragrance for the rest of my life.
But then again, this is all subjective.
pure oud oil
pfff that's easy...Kouros.
bringing us closer to worldpeace since 1981
If I could only have one, it would be Guerlain's Vetiver
Basenoters this is great! Lets keep this going! Thanks to all who are responding to this crazy question!
My SOTD...Askew...Then it will change tomorrow...
I really like Chanel Cuir de Russie and Amouage Lyric Man
Chanel Pour Monsieur, or maybe Eau Sauvage.
Nah, Mouchoir de Monsieur...
Well then make it two for Private Collection "Vintage" Tabarome
I'll be different and answer this question directly: Serge Lutens Chergui. Viewing fragrance as art, it is the piece which has had the most profound affect on me. Surely it will change one day, and I look forward to discovering the fragrance which takes it's place as my #1.
If only one, the hauntingly mysterious yet darkly elegant Encre Noire.
I like Creeds, but they do tend to exaggerate a bit in their marketing . . .
The best scent ever has yet to be made.
I suppose it should come close to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5J50...eature=related
Though the protagonist found that getting the ingredients for it proved um---messy.
The best I can do would be to give you a list of my 5 star scents, which I'm too lazy to do right now but you can look them up in my wardrobe below, then check out the reviews to determine how well they've been constructed.
Patou PH and Original Dunhill '34 are shoo-ins on both counts, but that's just my opinion, besides even if they were 'objectively' 5 stars scents and masterfully created, they might not be your cup of tea, anyway.
You're going to have to search for the one or the ones.
This hobby is not fattening, but it does get to be expensive.
Time to put this controversy to rest. Aramis Havana. There..I've said it
Mouchoir de Monsieur is good. That much I can say safely.
Polo of course.
