end of thread?
First, I'd like to rename this thread: Must Own Designers
(from what I've tried so far)
Versace The Dreamer (if you hate it, go for Kouros or Kiton for Men maybe)
L'Instant Extreme or DHI (but you probably really want Extreme)
Le Male or Rochas Man(or both, but I say Le Male slightly > Rochas Man)
YSL La Nuit or 1 of the Angel Men's, whether it's Pure Havane, or the original, or chili, etc.
& Gucci PH II for an all purpose, all weather workhorse
Highly subjective. To pick one, I'll go with Kouros also.
d&g the one
prada infusion d´homme
herrera for men
carolina herrera chic
For me the best designers are:
Chanel Pour Monsieur
YSL Opium pour homme EDP
Tom Ford Grey Vetiver
One and only one - acqua di gio....
I believe most of the masses of men would tell you that.
Narciso Rodriguez for Him
Fleur du Male
Bulgari pour Homme
Kiehl's Original Musk
Bleu de Chanel
Aqua di Gio
Sales thread here
Anything by YSL...
Armani Code / Black Code
Allure Homme Sport, Allure Homme, Egoiste, Platinum Egoiste, Terre De Hermes, Voyage De Hermes, Kenzo Pour Homme, Mugler Cologne, Bulgari Aqua, Burberry London, Cool Water, L'Homme, La Nuit De l'homme, Le Male, Dior Homme, Fahrenheit, Dior Homme Sport, L'Instant De Guerlain, Gendarme, Dolce Gabbana Pour homme, Issey Miyake..thats my list!

Dolce Gabbana PH is pretty close to YSL L'Homme
As listed many times above already, any Gucci fragrance created under the helm of creative director Tom Ford (1994-2004)
Very rich smelling fragrances were created at the pinnacle of designer frags releases.
Gucci frags were a testament to this era
Dior Homme Intense
Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin
A few Diors that can be had reasonably and are as good as any -- Dior Homme, Eau Sauvage, Jules and Fahrenheit.
A bunch of YSL also reasonable and exceptionally good -- Live Jazz, Rive Gauche pour homme, Kouros, M7 Fresh.
I like Polo Modern Reserve, too.

OK, I cannot claim them to be THE BEST. All you're gonna get are subjective answers, but hey, it's always fun and inspirational!
My top five would be... Pure Coffee, Fahrenheit, Bvlgari Black, Burberry London and YSL La Nuit de L'homme.
I will stick to whats left in my top 5. Probably take away MiP and add in TdH
Current Top 5:
1. Frederic Malle L'eau d'Hiver
2. Tom Ford Noir de Noir
3. Dior Homme / Dior Homme Intense
4. Thierry Mugler A*Men Pure Havane / Pure Malt
5. Creed Aventus / Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille

Dior Homme Intense
VC&A PH is awesome. Must have for a guy (who wants to smell like a guy).
I used to recommend Polo original (green) but I have received the recent formulation, and it ain't the same as it used to be... in either scent or longevity.
Some of the Jacques Bogarts are good: Bogart PH, One Man Show, and the newer One Man Show Gold ain't bad.
Other good ones are Lapidus PH, Quorum, and Rive Gauche
I think 1 Million and Bleu de Chanel are good too.
As you might figure out here, I lean toward the powerhouse scents. Alot of the other designers are nice scents, but without decent longevity, I just don't care to own 'em.
