    It was just cut and paste actually, so no RSI yet.(at first I thought you meant Relative Strength Index which could be relative I suppose!)
    seems too low giving the strong feelings for some scents on BN, but do as you see fit....that list BTW was a compilation of previous threads on favorite colognes..

    Afraafa .. Its not about me doing as I fit .
    Most of the comments are about your list of 20 & the ones not on it .
    I merely mentioned we would need to run a few of these to get a real group of 20 to ne considered the King .
    I thought about it & to my way of thinking I reckon that the first 20 mentioned on this thread/poll that are not on your list are the best ones chosen for the next phase of polling .

    Wow the voting is closing the gap. Guerlain Vetiver now has several challengers very close.

    I went with 3: Kouros, Polo and Creed GIT. Actually, that's pretty much my 3 all-time faves. They've each been smelling great for a long time now.

    I will say that Terre d'Hermes now belongs in the pantheon of classics.

    And one more note, IMHO Platinum is way better than Egoiste.

    Afraafra .. you can't run a poll to have a poll .
    Lets KISS .... keep it simple !!
    We use the first 20 frags not in the list mentioned in the comments .
    That I beleive is the wisest next move .
    Bypassing those to me seems ignorant .
    If you want to proceed this way , say eye . eye !
    If you want to open debate/discussion in choosing the next 20 from the list above , see it thru yourself .

    A good list of some classic fragrances but, to me, any list without No. 88 and Heritage is incomplete.

    Classic is such a subjective term. I would add many and delete many from afraafra's master list but cannot fault the reasoning behind any of his selections.

    Classic is such a subjective term. I would add many and delete many from afraafra's master list but cannot fault the reasoning behind any of his selections.
    While I think C&S is certainly a great fragrance, I would have a hard time calling it a classic. After all, how many places in the USA sell it? as you said, classic is a difficult term to define, and while it is personal there has to be some kind of agreement. For me a classic has to be:

    1. a well known scent. Instantly recognisable.
    2. an influential fragrance.
    3. It has to be Old. (how many years old? I do not know)
    4. It needs to define an era. Think Drakar Noir, Chanel monsieur, Fahrenheit, Eau Sauvage, CK one (though this one is not old) , eternity, Aqua di gio, Cool water, Guerlain vetiver...

    Personally, I think that a classic needs to be so influential and well known that it transcends the circles of fragrance enthusiast. that is why the king of classics cannot be a niche fragrance in my humble opinion. I also think that it makes more sense to have a Decade-King as I believe it would be more fair. Finally, we have to recognise the fact that, in order to choose a classic scent, we have to put aside personal preferences.

    True. In my defense, I did not "pick" the fragrances, I just took the previous list and deleted what I did not consider a classic. I did see yatagan 'carven but I was not sure what afraafra meant so I deleted it.
    My new list is

    Guerlain Vetiver
    Third Man - Caron (1985)
    Tabac Blond - Caron "!" (1919)
    Polo (green) - Ralph Lauren

    Monsieur de Givenchy - Givenchy
    Knize Ten - Knize (1924)
    Jovan Musk
    Jicky - Guerlain (1889)
    JHL - Aramis (1982)
    Havana - Aramis (1965) (discontinued)
    Habit Rouge - Guerlain
    Grey Flannel
    Givenchy Gentleman

    This is a very admirable effort and I encourage you to continue pursuing it. I agree with your statement above but please accept that if you define the term "classic" and you solely decide which fragrances meet that criteria, in the end it will be your list not our list.

    I have to say, IMO, the original idea behind this poll was clear and well done; the results are in, you have your king: Vetiver.
    The original list may have missed out on a few true classics and it included a real dog; Chrome? Do you honestly think that more people like Knize Ten, Tiffany for Men, Old Spice, etc. better than Vetiver, Habit Rouge, Kouros, Eau Sauvage? One thing you could have done was to assign the number 20 spot be a write in. Then you could have tallied all the write-ins separately.
    This could get even stickier than the Gore/Bush recount.
    To be quite honest, if you do this again and again and again, you will more than likely end up with Vetiver, Habit Rouge, Kouros, Eau Sauvage still in the top five.
    Also, the more you repeat this kind of thread, the less reliable the results will be, as people will loose interest over time.
    Chrome is Dead. Long live Vetiver!
    Great job Afraafra.

    I think the surprises were Antaeus and Pour Monsieur doing so well..
    Also I think we are talking about "Classics' in the eyes of Basenoters. It maybe different if a historian wanted to pick classic scents it would probably be: 4711, Aqua velva, old spice ,Fleur d'Italie (1884), Rococo (1887) and Cologne du coq (1894). Jicky (1889).

    Luca Turin , has already made his choices of classics: Azzaro Ph, Yatagan, Pour un Homme, Cool Water, Le Troisieme Homme, Pour Monsieur , Dior Homme, Eau Savage, Beyond Paradise Men, Grey Flannel, Insense, Chamade, Derby, Habit Rouge, Jicky, Ormonde Man, Yohji Homme, Kouros, and Bulgari Black.

    An odd collection of "Classics". A few supermarket fragrances blended with a few uppercrust supermarket fragrances blended with one niche fragrance.

    What an odd plethora of "Classics".

    If you decide to sample Chanel Pour Monsieur, please remember there are two versions. The original from 1955 and the Concentree version from 1989. Each version has its adherents. I much prefer the original. Pour Monsieur (1955) ended up in fourth place when I ranked my fragrances earlier this year - that's 98th percentile. In the U.S., the major department stores only carry the Concentree version. You can still find the original online and I believe someone said recently that U.S. Chanel boutiques carry it. I understand that the original is easy to find in Europe.

Do you honestly think that more people like Knize Ten, Tiffany for Men, Old Spice, etc. better than Vetiver, Habit Rouge, Kouros, Eau Sauvage? One thing you could have done was to assign the number 20 spot be a write in. Then you could have tallied all the write-ins separately.
    This could get even stickier than the Gore/Bush recount.
    To be quite honest, if you do this again and again and again, you will more than likely end up with Vetiver, Habit Rouge, Kouros, Eau Sauvage still in the top five.
    Also, the more you repeat this kind of thread, the less reliable the results will be, as people will loose interest over time.
    Chrome is Dead. Long live Vetiver!
    Great job Afraafra.
    You could be correct ....
    but as many others have pointed out , it doesn't include all the contestants .
    Vetiver is odds on to be in the final .
    So at this stage lets just those contenders rolling in .

    You are dealing with 154 voters, so far. So, you may max out with 200. IMO, all you are going to achieve is the splitting hairs. Count all the write ins and the fragrances they mentioned and you will have your results. Also, you have 80 postings to this thread. You will never get more than 10-15 votes each for the "missing classics".
    Maybe, I'm being a kill joy - but crunch the numbers a bit. Are you surprised that Vetiver won? It's been a best seller for over four decades.

    Ruggles .... You may have made your proclamation a little soon !!
    Vetiver has not won ..
    At the time of this posting ,, Its level with Eau Savage ,
    Habit Rouge & Kouros are also within striking distance ...
    Like most who have commented it really isn't a complete selection to choose from .
    I just merely liked the idea to start with but I don't like to see other great ones not given the opportunity to be in the running .
    Food for thought how would Vetiver fare against Patou or Giorgio ?

    Oh dear, none of the scents I would have nominated (Patou pour Homme, Derby, Eau d'Hermes, Knize Ten, Heritage) are on this list. Of those listed I'd settle for Kouros, Caron Pour un Homme and Eau Sauvage.

    I think we can safely say our top 3 will be:
    Eue Sauvage Dior
    Vetiver Guerlain
    Habit Rouge Guerlain

    I think if Dior Homme was there it would have clinched it..

    What about multiple polls (as suggested) but each poll had similar fragrance types (chypre, orientals, etc) and you can only vote for 3 max in any poll. Then we could see what bner's favorite oriental etc was.

    Also, IMO, egoiste over platinum egoiste every time.

    Are you KIDDING? Dimitrios... taking all this HEAT?, no I somehow missed out Dior Homme(now my favorite scent) in the list and think BNers rate it higher than Eau Sauvage and Vetiver probably.

    My suggestion for a classic that was not on the original list is Armani.
    Another go-to scent of that era is Tsar.
