    I'd probably have to go with D&G pour homme because it seems to be a little bit different each time I wear it.

    GEIR. I wish I had discovered this one sooner. I would have saved a lot of time and money searching for the "ultimate oriental". I adore this one so much that if I had only one scent in the world, this would be it. I haven't received one compliment while wearing this fragrance, but it doesn't matter. It compliments me. Milamber hit the nail on the head when he described this in his notebook as "tears of an angel". *

    I think for me it would have to be CDG "Avignon". When I first put it on I am transported from the earthly realm to the spirit realm. I feel holy, purified, centered and calm. Growing up Catholic, I had brief moments of spiritual centeredness and this reminds me of knealing on hard benches and praying. I guess it wakes me up from this physical reality and whispers, "There is more going on than meets the eye!".

    For the past couple of months i've been reaching quite often for HM EDT.
    What a buttery smooth, masterfully blended fragrance. This scent amazes me with each and every spray, i can't get enough of it! Not too sweet, the citrus notes give it a slight 'bite'.

    So if i HAD to live with one scent only, HM EDT would be my choice.

    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.

    Ah, hell, I see now that I've already answered this question from the past! ;D Um, yeh, it would definitely be one of these two (Nino Cerruti Pour Homme and Zino Davidoff)!

    You stole my thoughts. HM is the closest to a perfect scent that I have found. It and A*Men are the only 2 scents I knew I had to have instantly after smelling them.

    I dont think i have a favorite fragrance, i'm always on the search for different fragrances, and my top 5 is always changing. But if i was held at hostile situations, i would say ROCHAS MAN, lol that's right!!!!! To many people it's just a normal gourmand, but this is seriously hands down my most complimented fragrance since my Basenotes era, and it's just so addicting, never gives me a headache, sorta have an anti-depressant effect too,lol. When everybody from all walks of life compliment you on a fragrance, you know you have something special, and to me ROCHAS MAN is THE ONE to keep forever, i think i'm going to wear it in my wedding, lol....i'll shut up now.
    Current top 5:
    1. Frederic Malle The Night
    2. Roja Dove Sultanate of Oman
    3. MFK Baccarat Rouge 540
    4. SHL 777 Black Gemstone
    5. Rasasi Tobacco Blaze

    I was checking to see if my tastes had changed in seven years. They haven't. I still don't believe in a best fragrance, lol.

    Tough question, but I guess it will be Lumière Noire Pour Homme by Maison Francis Kurkdjian...

    For me it's tough to cite one as a best.

    I don't know how BN was in the past, since I only joined a few years ago, but I enjoy it immensely today.

    And to answer the original question:

    Nope. Can't think of one.

    My favorite smell is Chanel's Eau de Cologne, but I wouldn't say it's the best fragrance. Not versatile enough, poor longevity, and virtually no compliments.

    I have yet to find the holy grail, but the best batches of Millesime Imperial come very, very close.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    If I had to pick one out my my entire fragrance history, it would definitely be Dolce and Gabbana Pour Homme. But the vintage stuff, not the reformulations.

    It was my signature scent. My trademark.

    The day I found out first hand it was reformulated, you'd think someone shot my dog in front of my eyes.

    Wasn't aware this had been reformulated. How much does the current one differ?

    I'd love to pick one but it seems that the answer has changed several times over the years. WHen I think I could never live without a certain frag a few months/years later I find that I'm just not as big a fan as I thought I was.
