    Gucci Envy, A*men, and Pi. Top picks for me, and I'm an oriental fanatic.

    1. Minotaure
    2. Roma Uomo
    3. Signature
    4. Mont Blanc Individuel
    5. Bvlgari Black
    6. Cristobal
    7. Zizanie

    8-10, *you tell me

    I'm not a fan of M7, though many love it, ditto for its YSL cousin: *Opium for men,
    which is not, *to put it kindly, *in the same ballpark as the original Opium for women, *but again, *it has a *loyal following.

    Oops. Forgot the obvious:

    [blue]I'd have to think about the top ten, but two I'd definitely would have in the top ten would be the discontinued *Ballenciaga Pour Homme* and also, by Balenciaga, *Ho Hang*. Two smoother orientals one will not find.

    1) Chergui by SL - A little more friendly than other Serge Lutens Orientals. Sweet, deep, and rich.
    2) Fumerie Turque by SL - My favorite oriental. Deep, rich, and not too sweet.
    3) Angel by Mugler - One of the most innovative fragrances ever made.
    4) Soir d'Orient by MPG - Very unique and striking. Unlike anything on the market.
    5) Musc Ravageur by FM - This is one of the most beautifully constructed oriental ever made.
    6) M7 by YSL - A wonderful, elegant, and slightly contemporary oriental.
    7) Habit Rouge by Guerlain - A classic that defined an area of mens fragrance.
    8) Opium (For women) - A classic must own.
    9) Arabie by SL - Arabie is basically the definition of oriental. It takes the term oriental to the extreme.
    10) Shalimar - This is one of the first orientals. It takes Jicky and makes it a bit more 'oriental'. It's rich, complex, and timeless.

    [blue]Renzo,

    Very glad to see another *Ho Hang* fan and that this wonderful fragrance has not been discontinued. Have you had the chance to try *Balenciaga Pour Homme*? I know that one has been discontinued for sure. It's very hard to find.

    Regards,
