Thread: Best/Favourite Male Fragrance
New to this site but will be using it a lot now that I've found it!
Interested to hear opinions regarding what people think is the best (and/or their favourite) male fragrance - if you could have only one male fragrance, what would it be?
by a huge margin.....

Prob'ly Habit Rouge..., no wait- Guerlain Vetiver..., hmmm -maybe Chanel PM 1955...

- A spritz of Caron may be quite continental, but (a flacon of) Guerlain is a perfumisto's best friend...
I'll give you my top two. It's a close call between Dior's Eau Sauvage and Guerlain Vetiver.
XY and le male
Oscar for Men.. So damn versatile..

The best would be Eau Sauvage. The favorite would be Hammam Bouquet. The one I wear most frequently is Extra Vieille (Jean Marie Farina).

I would have to agree with one of these two as well ! Great all around especially at this time of year. For the cooler Days Creed MI or Bulgari PH.
Just one...very tough
I, and most other basenoters, simply would not be able to tell you. There are so many great fragrances, and so many great niche houses that all have their own signature fragrance styles, that you can appreciate so many different fragrances in different ways.
I'm torn between Dior Homme, L'Egoiste and Fahrenheit 32
And I don't think I could live without my Yardley English Lavender (I just got a 125ml bottle - just in case!)

Bvlgari pour Homme ....versatile and does not come across as too perfumey . I find that after a few months I get tired of a fragrance, but his one has been in use for 3 years. Now , if I had to wear it everyday, I'm sure I'd get tired of it sooner or later.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, ...... I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost
Although I ask that my final resting place be sprayed down thoroughly with Terre d'Hermès, in this life, while on my uninhabited Pacific island, let only one fragrance wash ashore:
Having originally started this thread, unsure myself of what I would regard as my favourite fragrance, the replies highlighting Havana by Aramis have brought back memories of a fantastic scent that I must confess, I has actually forgotten.
Does anyone know where this can be obtained, as I can not seem to find it in any online shops?
This is actually for Havana Reserva... It's a little different from regular Havana, but honestly it's 95% the same juice... I happen to like it better than the original...
Out of my several dozen bottles, I find myself reaching for Carven Homme more than any other.

Does unisex count?
AdP Colonia Assoluta. Great longevity and I can wear it anytime, anywhere. Having said that, there are many in this thread I haven't even tried yet.
My favorite, very manly frag is Rive Gauche.
Allure Edition Blanche. Thank goodness this board has opened my eyes to this bottle of joy.

Check the annual basenotes awards.
I'd say my favorite is either Silver Mountain Water or Ambre Sultan. I can't decide. Very different from eachother.
