    And to support a number of posters on this, every men's wardrobe should have a bottle of Caron Pour Un Homme! Im loving it more with each wearing. Will soon have to revise my 3 star rating on it!

    I have to start with some Guerlains...

    Heritage - it is a fragrance of such majesty it is worthy of a royal crest. Longer lasting and more imperial than BdP it is a true meisterstuck of the parfumer's art.

    Mitsouko - a perfume of such art and beauty it is almost heart-breaking in its poetry. No man or woman with a soul should be unfeeling to its song.

    Vetiver - The best out there. There are others that seek its crown, such as Creed, but none that come close. L'Occitane's Vetiver is nice though...

    Jicky - Do you really need to ask?

    To be continued...

    Well, Mouchoir de Monsieur would be one.
    Derby
    would be another Guerlain that qualifies.
    Gucci Nobile.
    Givenchy Gentleman.
    Geoffrey Beene Grey Flannel.
    Chanel Antaeus, Égoïste, and Pour Monsieur.
    Dior Jules.

    Hmmm ... for me to consider a fragrance to be timeless it has to satisfy a couple of things:

    1. It has to have some "time testing" - for me, at least 10 years, preferably 20!
    2. It cannot have become "dated" during that time - meaning it is as relevant today as ever! (and of course, this is highly subjective!)

    ====

    So ... in no particular order, my short list:

    Chanel Egoiste and Pour Monsieur
    Guerlain Jicky, Habit Rouge and Mouchoir de Monsieur
    Hermes Eau d'Orange Vert
    YSL Kouros

    In no particular order:

    Guerlain Heritage
    Guerlain Habit Rouge
    YSL Kouros
    Patou Pour Homme (a sad addition to any list)
    Mitsouko

    I second that a timeless fragrance should have seen some time before being considered timeless. (huh?)
