    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.

    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.

    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 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.

  14. #14

    Cool Re: Vote for Best Evening Scent

    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.

    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).

    & 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 ?

    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!

    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 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.

    I voted for Antaeus from this list, but would prefer Bois du Portugal, a fragrance that I find at least equal to the Chanel in complexity, but not quite as dark.

    I would also vote for Musk Ravageur

    My handicap is that I have not sniffed (at least knowingly) a good number of these scents.

    Dear Narcus, I guess it really depends on your chem cuz on me MR though unisex, is more on the masculine side, mellowing down to a velvetys smooth musk with a spiced tonka powdery twist: sumptuous but not at all violent, well suited for an elegant dinner or to the theatre. It even passed the test of wearing it on the dancefloor and on me it fitted flawlessly.

    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.

    I voted for Antaeus, of course; but I was very tempted to go for Chanel pour Monsieur. Of the ones on your list, I love them all. The only one I've never smelled is Musc Ravageur. I must get around to sniffing some of that before too long.

    Because I've never sniffed Anteus (or many of the others on the list) I'm choosing the spicy Envy for a cooler night's activities.

    I like Opium, but I see it as too sweet and much too strong to be a classy evening scent. Maybe if you applied veeeeeeeery lightly. Otherwise, more of a loud clubbing scent IMO.

    Chanel PM: as I said in my explanation of my Dior Homme vote, I find Chanels too aldehydic...or aldehydy...whatever ...and Pour Monsieur is THE prime example of this problem. Nice powdery/spicy drydown though.

    Musc Ravageur and Antaeus were actually a close second and third to Dior Homme for me though. Both are very nice. Antaeus is the only Chanel with an opening that doesn't drive me nuts with aldehydes.
