    I don't know enough of the candidates to make an informed full list, and I believe the ignorant probably shouldn't vote.

    One name on there amazed me - Antonio. True, it's under Popular Appeal, aka Mass Market. I like so many types of scents that usually even if I don't like something I can find some merit in it, or at least grasp the concept.

    But with Antonio - wow, I sampled it 2 blocks from home, and fortunately I managed to get it washed off within about 5 minutes. It took the trendy concept of fresh scents and made it as cheap-smelling as possible.

    After seeing previous FiFi winners, it does make you wonder if it's simply a matter of promotion, sort of like Miramax's onslaught of payola every Oscar season. Nonetheless, I'm sure there must be quality candidates in there as well.

    I'd like to join in here. Does anybody know how these categories are formed (which principles)? Never heard of "Luxe". Strange category if fragrances like Polo and Terre d'Hermès are united there...

    Of the ones proposed as finalists, Antonio is the best one (IMHO).
    I think it's not that bad, and also i think we all can name at least 20 more frags that came out this year that are cheaper smelling than Antonio.
    BTW, bijan black is not too bad either, but i like the other one better.
    So Antonio gets my vote.
