    Default Hands down best fragrance?

    Though it's a tough question, is there a hands down, best fragrance for you guys?

    Definitely a tough call between the 'Scent of a Woman' and 'the smell of Napalm in the Morning.'

    There is no such thing, just as there is no such thing as a perfect circle. In both cases, only the idea or notion of one exists (a perfect circle existing only as a mathematical theory, and we all know about the quest for the "holy grail" of fragrances).

    Yes. It's Kiton.
    It's the most expensive EDT I ever paid for.
    It's the most expensive aftershave splash I ever paid for.
    It's the most expensive aftershave balm I ever paid for.
    It's the smoothest, classiest scent I own.
    It was instrumental in getting me the lady of my dreams.
    My life would be very different now if not for Kiton.
    It was worth every cent I paid for it.

    But that doesn't mean I wear it all the time, I keep it for special occasions.

    I would have to say Creed's Trombone and I believe all would agree with me who smelt it....thought it very elusive scent to find.

    Toss up between Kouros and Kingdom

    Just kidding.

    Toss up between Antaeus and The Third Man

    No, that isn't quite right.

    Toss up between Piper Nigrum and Tabac Blond

    Can I redo that?

    Kouros. Period.

    Vintage or New Tabarome? The Vintage is great, the New is just too much ginger for me.

    My favorite hands down is Santal Noble.

    No such thing as "best". "Best" is unique to the user. And as for me, it changes monthy ... sometimes weekly. This week it's Damien Bash's "Sin".

    Now favorite? That's another story.

    My wardrobe will never be without Escada Magnetism .... but that's just me. [smiley=grin.gif]

    Hi all,

    (Sniff...sniff..sniff...) Hey...Scentimus...what's that smell ? Could it be....hummmm....SARCASM (echo:SARcasm Sarcasm sarcasm)? LOL (at least I THINK you are trying to be sarcastic but...I dunno). At any rate...CREED new TABAROME is TRULY my OVERALL favorite fragrance (and has been for well over a year)! However...SMN "ACQUA DI CUBA" is a CLOSE second...and I mean VERY close! YSL "KOUROS" would most likely come in third not only due to it's BEAUTY but also due to it's reasonable cost. That being said...for me personally...CREED TABAROME works well and...I believe I could wear it most every day (unlike many of my SPECIAL fragrances). Oooh MPG "EAU DES ILES" continues to be my favorite SPECIAL fragrance (along with SERGE LUTEN "FUMERIE TURQUE&quot. LORENZO VILLORESI "PIPER NIGRUM" continues to rank right up at the TOP as well.

    Regards,
    SixCats!

    Floris No. 89 has been my favorite for some time now. Crown Sandringham comes the closest after that.

    Habit Rouge, of course!

    But everyone has different skin chemisty and people wear fragrances different ways, etc. So there can never be a best fragrance all around, just best fragrances for individuals.

    Designer fragrances: D&G pour homme, without a doubt. Love it.

    Niche: Creed MI, love it as well and it almost fits every occasion.

    If I had to name one, I would choose Caron L'Anarchiste. This is not to say that it's the most versatile, I just love the fact that the name, bottle, and juice inside are so much different than anything out there. And I like different.

    An impossible question to answer but I will pick either JHL or Santal Noble.

    if i had a swat team, two sniper teams, 3 tank bettalions, 5 f-16's and Osama before me and and demanded an answer, i would probably say Piper Nigrum; they they mistrust me and exclaim "your last chance to tell the truth a$$$#%" then i would probably say Tangerinevert by MH; should they run out of pateince and knee cap me then i would blurb out MI by creed; should they finally end up killing me then i would tell God"(well, i haven't died yet!!)"

    Nice choice! Definitely a contender for me, too! However, after much mulling about I would have to say I am perpetually impressed and intrigued at the same time everytime I use Nino Cerruti Pour Homme.

    I would have to agree with Ballard, even though I do find Zino to be a bit limited in wearability. It's pretty heavy for daytime/suntime wear. But it's just so dreamy, so beautiful -- wearing it is like being high. So if I could only have one, it would have to be Zino. I couldn't stand being without it.

    If I really had to go with just one, it would have to be Patricia de Nicolai New York.

    When I think of perfume, I don't think *hands down*. I think *legs up*.

    I'm quite dubious about this question.

    My approach to this would be to find the best fragrance by popular opinion by means of a poll.

    My Initial thoughts would lead to me to ask - what criteria would the "best" fragrance be based on? I'm afraid there is no simple answer to this as it is too subjective a question.

    While I havn't met her yet, (pretty sure/hope..) I am quite interested in Kiton, if it is this potent. Never heard anything about it...(then again, never really looked) any more info on this one, Renato?

    If you see this, please be warned that my wardrobe is woefully out of date. It may never be updated. Feel free to ask any questions you may have, but be warned!

    Egoiste. Or By Dolce & Gabbana. Or D&G Pour Homme. Or Tabarome. I give up.

    Does anyone else feel that Kiton smells very much like Burberry London (or the other way).
