    From the standard line, probably Antaeus... but you can't beat Coromandel and Sycomore from the Exclusifs. In fact nearly all of the Exclusifs are unisex - Bois des Iles, Cuir de Russie, 31 Rue Cambon, Eau de Cologne and 28 La Pausa are all great choices. It's pretty rare when a house has such an overwhelming number of high-quality, wearable fragrance.

    Pour Monsieur is my first choice. I like Allure Edition Blanche, too.

    Antaeus with AHEB as a strong second.

    Allure Homme Blanche is very nice...the regular allure is a runner up...followed by the lighter Allure sport.

    Egoiste has been my favourite since I got a sample in a trade (thanks bbBD!) but I've recently fallen for Pour Monsieur. Shame it doesn't last

    If I had to pick one it would be Pour Monsieur. The funny thing though is that I don't really like any of the Chanel frags I've tested.

    Ditto, I was going to list the same five six fragrances!

    I love them all, but I love Chanel Pour Monsieur (1955) just a little bit more.

    Egoiste Platinum trounces Egoiste (I have both).

    Platinum reduces women's knees to water when I wear it. I feel pretty damned sexy wearing it too.

    Bois des Iles is a work of genius, just beautiful on a biblical scale.

    Allure Homme Edition Blanche is stealing my heart from Chanel Allure Homme Sport Cologne and the original Allure Homme. I do love Platinum Egoiste, but mostly for special occasions. I really do need to sample the Exclusifs series...

    Platinum Egoiste, tried it when I was very young on the advice of an "older" lady I was trying to impress. Didn't like it on my young skin. Now that im a little older I love this stuff.

    Default Re: Which is your masculine perfume favourite of Chanel?

    Although I don't own any Chanel at this point in time, I did wear both Allure Homme and Platinum Egoiste each for a few years and find it hard to choose one over the other. Should my arm be twisted, I'd probably say Allure Homme.
    As much as I like Pour Monsieur and Antaeus, they both give me headaches these days :-(

    Also, 28 La Pausa is a very fine Chanel that I am enjoying most right now!
