    A Holy grail is a thing of myth - the real world has too many variables.

    Oud Lime
    R de Capucci
    Acqua di Parma
    Royal Scottish Lavender
    Tabarome Millesime

    I WANT MORE ..........

    (neroli sauvage,bois de cedrat,selection verte all may have made it if question asked in summer)

    10th Anniversary of this thread...here goes my new list...

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Polo Green (vintage)
    3. Kouros (vintage 1985)
    4. Tom Ford Italian Cypress
    5. TIE - Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme (Italian) and Dior Homme (silver stem vintage)

    I love the smell of Bleu de Chanel (EDT AND EDP), but the poor performance of both knocks it down a few places. Also an honorable mention to MFK Pluriel Masculin. Love that juice.

    I can't choose a fifth. So I'll make do with four as I know they are definitive choices. As my fifth I had considered Erolfa, Sel Marin, Noir de Noir, AdP and many others. Countless designers too. I'd make do with four. Leave the one space blank so its always there.

    Not the most constant and predictable personal ranking, but while some all time favorites remain, at least another one was added (in this case, most likely the Penhaligons scent from this personal list) as follows:

    Armani Eau pour Homme
    Knize Ten
    Creed BDP
    Sartorial
    Hermes Rocabar

    Fun bump, Chuck. I would love to see these 2006-era posters back!

    Egoiste is like a holy grail scent for me, with Antaeus, Fahrenheit, Chanel Pour Monsieur, and Patou Pour Homme rounding out my top-five favorites.

    Default Holy Grail / Top five all-time

    My goodness. You all are throwing down the gauntlet on some heavy hitters. Taking no prisoners! I think Kouros is the only one I don't connect with, but, regardless of any past transgressions of me trying to put it on a leash, I do respect it.

    I've tried a couple times and I can't commit to holy grail on anything at the moment. Especially since I've gotten on this vintage kick all the sudden. I love all my children equally???

    Yes, well. It's definitively eye-opening to see a 5,000 post contributor list CK One as their second choice. We have come a long way.
