    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.

    I always liked the Egoiste Platinum. It has this dry woody note that I like alot.

    Yea, and I swapped it blind, of all things.

    It is currently my favorite. This thing is a beauty, too bad it is hard to find as hell.

    I do not know what is with Allure but women love it.
    I think mine will be Egoiste Platinum

    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.

    Antaeus

    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.

    I'm with Ruggles on this one, Allure Edition Blanche.

    (The Platinum version seems a bit more sparklier and not as intense as Egoiste.)

    If I had to have one I'd have Antaeus, as my brothers above have picked.

    I like no Chanels frags to this point, hopefully Sycomore can change that, when I get the chance to sniff it.
