    I'm always surprised when 3rd Man pops up on lists like this (and it always does). I really don't see that fragrance as being at all a masculine powerhouse.

    This question made me realize that if I dislike a fragrance it's usually because it's too wimpy/boring and not because it's too potent.

    Back in the 80s Ive used them excessively, later in the 90s I hated them thoroughly, but now Im learning to love them again. Maybe one day we will consider those years (70`s/80s) as "Golden Age of masculine perfumery", maybe......

    Antaeus
    Van Cleef & Arpels pour Homme
    Derby
    Azzaro pour Homme

    Jules
    Yatagan

    Actually I love Azzaro PH, Xeryus Rouge, Van Cleef &Arpels PH, but NOT Kouros, Givench Gent. I think using these scents is like having a hot curry or Tabasco sauce with your meal, sometime you need to spice things up.
