I didn't see a list either, but I'd go for Bvlgari Black & Lolita Lempicka au masculin
Edit: The list just appeared for me. I voted for M7.
Edited again: Dang! I didn't see Musc Ravageur the first time I saw the list. I would've voted for that.

"Wait...is David Bowie really God?" - Penelope Garcia
My vote was for Envy, but I also really enjoy Egoiste.
One that I wear often, but wasn't listed is Zino Davidoff. That would have gotten my vote.
having tried everthing but antaeus on that list (I gotta get on that...) I would say that was a terribly hard choice to make. I gave it to M7 with Heritage on its tail.
Musc Ravaguer for sure of those listed.
"We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force." Ayn Rand...
"The essence of fascism is to make laws forbidding everything and then enforce them selectively against your enemies."
From the list: Musc Ravageur.
Other suggestions: Santal Noble, Idole de Lubin, Black Oud, Noir Epices.
Definitely Musc Ravageur from the list.
My personal "evening" frag faves though are Creed BdP and Aramis Havana.
I'm going for Dior Homme. After a long love affair with Chanel, the damned aldehydes are starting get on my nerves.
"It's not what you look like when you're doing what you're doing; it's what you're doing when you're doing what you look like you're doing."
Musc Ravageur conquers all.
I chose Envy because I think it works well for the evening. The others are amazing, but they are not my choice for the time of day you are looking for. Musc Ravageur is winning the races but I don't see it as such an evening fragrance. That is my opinion.
EnvYuS My Wardrobe
I chose Antaeus.
I'm in the minority re Musc Ravageur, which I consider a great fragrance ---on women.
It's (with special apologies to Joe Bob Briggs) about a minus 4 on the machometer.
Nice to know, reading the reviews that I'm not entirely alone re the ambery cloyness of MR.
The Loyal Opposition,
I'm going with Dior Homme. Love it!
My vote was for Antaeus.
This was a tough choice for me. I had this poll in the back of my mind for the past 4 hours haha. I really like Envy and M7, and Dior Homme is probably my favorite perfume ever, but I can wear these for daywear as well. Egoiste actually seems out of place during the day; it seems made for evening wear. It is fancy, elegant, and very classy. It is so time specific I don't reach for it as much as I want to. For all these reasons, I think Egoiste is the definitive "Best Evening Scent" of my wardrobe and that list (in my opinion).
My vote goes to Antaeus.
Puuuuuuuuh, nobody votes for opium, why did i take this to my list :--)
& Pour Monsieur - I thought this is an masterpiece but nobody want to use it, hmm, Is it not an evening frag or to old fashioned ?
Musk Ravageur is an Unisex scent, Is it ok to test it with the opposite Antaeus or ?
is not listed...i would choose Creed Bois du Portugal
Chanel Egoiste is my choice...the girls going crazy :-)

Almost all the Malles are officiallly Unisex. And according to my personal machometer it's totally femme in one hour and completely masculine in the other. I save myself the stress of dual personality by not wearing it at all. But I admire this fragrance no end! By the way, I think it kills almost any ladies' perfume in your neighborhood. Think twice before you wear it for a dinner or to the theater.
I voted for Heritage. It's so well behaved, and I miss the Bois Du Portugal option as much as Ziffy did. M7 was close, too!

'Il mondo dei profumi č un universo senza limiti: una fraganza puo rievocare sensazioni, luoghi, persone o ancora condurre in uno spazio di nuove dimensioni emozionali' L. V.
So I decided to be the first to vote for Opium. It's so special, spicy, warm.
Yet, polls are getting tough. aren't we here because there is no single best cologne that we can live with?
i want to buy terre d´hermes after work at douglas and will test there someother especially ask for frederic mall musk & vetiver extraordinaire.
Is Dior homme suitable for daytime too ? Did read also that it is better to use indoors too ?
14 Antaeus Chanel
13 Musk Ravageur Frederic Malle
9 Dior homme
7 M7 YSL
7 Envy Gucci
5 Heritage Guerlain
5 Egoiste Chanel
3 Allure Chanel
2 Gucci PourHomme
1 Opium YSL
0 Pour Monsieur Chanel

I went for Opium PH just because I can't think of this as a daytime scent, whereas Heritage fits that bill comfortably.As do many of those other scents.
I'm very alarmed to see that I'm in a tiny minority however.
There are people to whom the truth of language does not matter — they are known as liars.
I would also vote for Musk Ravageur
My handicap is that I have not sniffed (at least knowingly) a good number of these scents.
"Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. 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." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189
What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache
I voted for Antaeus but if I'd have to chose three among the listed I'd go with MR and Envy too.

Did read that YSL M7 and Antaeus are too equal ?
& again: Is Dior homme suitable for daytime too ? Did read also that it is better to use indoors too ?

From the list..I went with Envy Gucci....
Musc Ravageur from the list.
For me is Penhaligons Hammam Bouquet.
I'd probably wear BdP but voted for M7. If it was up to my wife I think she would say Romeo Gigli.
Antaeus I tend to wear during the day otherwise I'd vote for that.
