    My top are:
    1) YSL L'Homme
    2) Nautica Voyage
    3) Thierry Mugler Cologne
    4) Aqua Di Gio
    5)Cartier Declaration

    Allure Homme EB is a good one. Actually I am wearing it as we type. I tried the Sport Extreme once and thought it was ok. Maybe I will try it again.

    I don't break fragrances down by season, but something along the lines of Green Irish Tweed, MI, VIW and Terre D'Hermes would fit the bill.

    One I'm really enjoying and trying to wear more often: Cerruti Pour Homme (2008..I think). This is one I think will make a great spring/summer signature for me. We'll see if that happens.
    Summer Rotation:

    Versace Pour Homme by Versace
    Cool Water Game by Davidoff
    Tom Ford Grey Vetiver
    H.M. by Hanae Mori
    Vettiveru by Commes Des Garçons
    Riverside Drive by Bond No. 9
    Soon to include "Ab Spirit Silver"

    If smelling good was a crime, I'd be serving a lifetime sentence....

    Interesting. I will have to try both later tonight and see if I could find the similarity.

    Top five in my collection so far limited to only designer would be:

    1.) Dior Homme Sport
    2.) Chanel Allure Edition Blanche
    3.) Prada Infusion d'Homme
    4.) L'Instant de Guerlain (not the extreme version)
    5.) Chanel Allure Homme Sport

    Dior Homme Sport is such a great fragrance. Both Chanel's Allure Edition Blanche and Dior Homme Sport rely heavily on a lemon note but Edition Blanche is dryer and more "lemon zesty" while Dior Homme Sport is quite watery and perfect for hot summer days.

    Infusion d'Homme is my go to "bed time" scent because it is so relaxing, but I'd wear it any time, any place. It is a perfect example of year-round, multi-situational fragrance.

    L'Instant de Guerlain is a beautiful scent that leans more toward the citrus side of things than its extreme edition brother. I actually like this version better because of that added citrus blast and think it is one of the more unique scents that could be pulled off in the Summer within the designer realm.

    Lastly, Allure Homme Sport is a great all around fragrance that is sure to please most non-fraghead noses. Its does have a "pledge" smell to it but I happen to like that smell!

    Neither do I. So then all "designer" fragrances from my wardrobe would be my answer - because they please ME, which is the ONLY thing that matters.

    If you're looking at opinion of masses vs. our opinions:

    Allure Homme Sport would be at or near the top of these.
    Issey Miyake (I'm not a fan though) would be up there.
