    I tried to choose fragrances that are not only works of art in their own right but also are totems of the work of their creator and the house from whence they originated.
    p.s. I didn't include things that are obvious classics but I've never smelled I.e. Original Dioramma and Coty Chypre

    I think I would have to list at minimum 30 which are top of the cream. Selecting ten, just for men, is an impossible task:

    Singular within one House:

    Caron, Tabac Blond
    Creed, Bois du P
    Comme de Garcons, Avignon
    Dior, Eau Noir
    Divine, L'Homme Sage
    Montale, Attar
    Ricci, Signoricci
    Rabanne, Homme
    Sisley, Eau de Campagne
    Sta Maria Novella, Peau d'Espagne

    That's ten completed (!) and I have not even started with any from houses offering at least two masterpieces
    of equal value! You pick any fragrance of theirs, and they will also belong to my ten :
    L'Artisan Parfumeur; D'Orsay; Givenchy
    Guerlain; Hermes; Edition Malle
    Lutens; Rochas; Villoresi; YSL

    As a statistics freak, I decided to compose a "most voted list" for the fragrances mentioned so far.

    Updated to include posts up to GenuineImitationLife's. I only counted those that were mentioned for real, not those that were in parentheses as in "(I'd really like to mention X as well)". And I probably made a mistake or few.

    The winner with 13 mentions in this thread is Égoïste by Chanel.

    6: Bulgari Black - Bulgari (1998)

    5: L'Air Du Desert Marocain - Tauer (2005)
    5: Jaïpur Homme - Boucheron (actually 2 of these were just "Jaïpur" but I assumed they meant Jaïpur Homme as we're in the male forum and very few female scents were otherwise mentioned) (1997)

Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."

    I'd love to do a similar list on the disasterpieces (actually I the idea occurred to me when I saw some fragrances coming up on both lists) but right now I'm too tired for that!
    A big thank you!

    This thread is quite odd. If you compare people's top 10 it often doesn't correlate very well with other threads in which people have declared that X is a frag that they couldn't be without, or that they would recommend to someone, etc. It also seems to have been heavily biased toward currently available frags — there aren't many discontinued frags listed here, as though everyone has interpreted the list-making in the same way.

    If Egoiste really is the most agreed upon masterpiece why does it not feature more in the "recommed me a frag" threads?

    Still, always interesting to see what people really love.

    I believe that perfume lovers tend to be really passional about their hobbies - and, as much as their options are wide, their tastes can change almost daily, depending of their mood - and I include myself in that, even if my knowledge is not that wide - or deep.

    Having said that, I would consider as masterpieces:

    M7
    Azzaro
    Minotaure
    Body Kouros
    Egoiste
    Guerlain Vetiver
    Van Cleef & Arpels
    Fahrenheit
    Eau Sauvage
    Chanel pour Monsieur
