    Wow, Paddy! That sounds like the acquired, expensive tastes of BN oldtimers. But you do not fit into that pattern. How much, if I may ask, was BN involved in your selections?

    Hard to choose only ten, but I guess my list could look like this (in no particular order):

    1. Amouage: Dia pour homme
    2. The Different Company: Sel de Vetiver (best vetiver scent I've found)
    3. Clive Christian: No.1 for men
    4. Clive Christian: 1872 for men
    5. Editions de parfums Frederic Malle: Musc Ravageur (best musc scent!)
    6. Editions de parfums Frederic Malle: Noir Epices
    7. Editions de parfums Frederic Malle: Une Fleur de Cassie
    8. Christian Dior: Eau Noire (best lavender scent!)
    9. Richard James: Cologne (best cologne!)
    10. Boucheron: Boucheron pour homme (best citrus scent!)

    Since I could nominate only ten I had to drop Serge Lutens Borneo 1834 (best patchouly scent!) out :-(

    I had to give this a lot of thought because I wanted to think I would stand by this list in a year's time. We'll see, I guess. (No niche here, because in Australia it's just not available. Probably a good thing: I don't think my bank balance could take it.)

    Top Ten

    Patou Pour Homme (I can’t believe I get to wear something this beautiful!)

    Vendetta pour Homme by Valentino

    Givenchy Gentleman

    Heritage by Guerlain

    Ungaro I

    AD Plus by Alain Delon

    Versailles pour homme by Jean Desprez

    Polo Crest by RL

    Baldassarini by Boss

    R de Capucci or Egoiste by Chanel (Couldn't make up my mind.)

    I would have liked to have squeezed Balenciaga or Portos in the list but I'll have to wait for the top 12 or top 13 list.

    It could be! What I smelled of GV some months ago was vile, I really have to smell this again.

    I forgot to add this tidbit: I thought what I smelled was Chanel's Pour Monsieur. It seems it's PM concentree! Well, I like it, but I wonder what the similarities, if any, are?

    Not necessarily MY favourite frags to wear, but acknowledging ones that have been ground-breaking, or stood the test of time, or are highly creative / challenging, or are the best in their genre...

    Dunhill For Men 1934 - complex for its time, it's still very wearable
    Caron Pour Un Homme - great soliliflore of lavender
    Armani Eau PH - best citrus
    F Malle Vetiver Extraordinaire - best vetiver
    Creed Bois du Portugal - best wood
    Creed Vintage Tabarome - best power
    Hermes Terre d'Hermes - best "no brainer smell good", but that's damning with faint praise as I also find it complex
    Serge Lutens Chergui - totally unique
    Chanel Egoiste - totally unique
    Dior Homme - totally unique

    And for the ladies:

    Chanel Bois des Iles (no.1 best perfume EVER)
    Chanel Gardenia
    F Malle Carnal Flower
    F Malle Iris Poudre
    Hermes 24 Fauborg
    Serge Lutens Daim Blond
    Diptyque Philosykos

    Is Chanel's Égoïste not discontinued? I thought they had replaced it completely with Platinum Égoïste, which I haven't smelled...

    And I wouldn't be likely to attack this, or any other fine collection! I enjoy it very much when people spend more time praising their fragrances than bashing frags almost habitually. And I read them as inspirations.

    Sometimes I have felt sorry for guys from that second group. Some don't seem to even know what they are missing while wasting time to fabricate vile comments. Don't anybody get me wrong, there are frags that do not deserve much praise. But there is also the possibility to simply ignore colognes that are not up to ones standard.

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."

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache
