    I'm gonna go with Tiffany for Men as a write in vote.... Chanel nose Jacques Polge created the scent, and if I'm not mistaken, Chanel owns the fragrance (though not the jewelry company)...

    Would have loved to try some vintage Antaeus thuogh....

    LEgoiste.... Obviosuly.

    Allure Homme Sport Cologne Sport: not so obvious. It is a nice cologne with bergamote grapefruit and vetiver... Not quite long lasting but it is a cologne. That's why you get a 5 oz bottle.

    Several of the Chanel Exclusives boutique scents make good masculines - arguably much better than the traditional masculines on the list. Among them: Cuir de Russie, Bel Respiro, Eau de Cologne, and Sycomore.

    Have just made my 3 votes.

    If I may ask, what is the reason for this poll (and the other similar ones you've posted on the boards)?
    Are you planning on making a purchase based upon the most popular responses?

    Allure Homme Sport EDT (silver bottle). I like the combo of the vanilla and the aqauatic. Longeavity and projection are excellent.

    The women's compliments when I wear it are an extra bonus!

    That and cuoriosity, we are getting clear cut views here and less fluff I think...I assure you it is not for some market research thing, although someone may use these results for that purpose.

    Looks like someone is, perhaps, making a map of the mainstream fragrance world.

    No, I wasn't alluding to the idea you were a market researcher. I guess its one way to cut to the chase, although the detailed reviews do act as a very good resource.

    Really Ruggles, these polls are useful for all of us BNers , why all the verbal attacking? I'm sure there are subtle surprises in knowing what members really think about a fragrance compared to another one, I use the info to get the scents that I don't have.

    I speak for myself when I say Im certain no-one here is verbally attacking you afraafra. I didn't read Ruggles post in any other light other than a positive one.

    The trouble with such polls is that you will never gather an accurate cross section of answers, particularly when things like, for example, the Chanel Exclusives (as mentioned by Vibert) are omitted from the poll list. I think this is what Ruggles referred to when he said you were mapping the "mainstream" fragrance world.

    Peace.

    He needs to start the favorite Creed one so if I ever do buy it from someone or in a store I know the leanings. There seems to be great debate on this.

    I have a couple of faves but the all-time most used and most bought would be CD Sauvage, tho in the recent 5 years ive expanded my range quite significantly, all mine are mainstream tho, since i only heard of niche when i joined this forum.

    I agree, Dimitri. My problem with voting is that I haven't sampled all of the fragrances in the lists, so I feel like I'm skewing the results. Case in point, I've never tried Chanel PM, only Concentree. Many folks whose opinions I respect love PM but hate Concentree, so who am I to judge?

    That said, I happily voted for Antaeus and Concentree. As for the Allures, well, they might work well as drain cleaners...

    Egoiste and Pour Monsieur are my Chanel favorites for men.

    Tiffany for Men and Chanel Pour Monsieur are two frags I hope to never be without.

    I voted for:

    1. Chanel PMC, because a certain five year old girl insists that I wear it when we're together.

    2. Antaeus, because the grown-up girls like it.

    3. Egoiste, because I like it.

    I voted both here and in the women's thread. I also very much like the Exclusifs line, but I suppose if the point of the polls is to get ideas for things that are readily available in department stores, it makes sense to leave them out.

    Pour Monsieur, because itīs the best "Chypre p.H." around
    Antaeus, because itīs "No 5 pour Homme"
    Egoiste, because itīs the beautiful grandchild ot the divine "Bois des Iles"

    I didn't know that. I must admit, it doesn't surprise me. Tiffany for Men is everything both the Chanel PMs should have been, but better.


    I voted for Chanel Egoiste Platinum. It's just such a versatile fragrance in a way Egoiste just isn't, as it can be too heavy for some uses.

    I only sampled three of those but I've voted anyway. Egoiste, Egoiste Platinum and Pour Monsieur. My favorite by far is Egoiste.
