    for me it's Dior Homme, but I believe there'd been a bunch of these threads before.

    Green Irish Tweed (don't burn me at the stake for this), but I love the iris and violety opening, and bright, soapy, lemony middle notes, and creamy ambergris base. It's addicting. It is so versatile too, casual - check, date - check, interview - check. I'm sure there are a lot of better scents, but this one covers so many grounds and is so intoxicatingly good. One downside is it's price. But it is the only Creed I would pay for at regular prices.

    It's hard to pick just one, which is why there are going to be a bunch of replies with five or more as usual. My opinion on this changes every few months. Right now I'm more into Himalaya than I am Gucci PH, which would get me second vote.

    Patou Pour Homme. Why in the name of all that is holy did they discontinue this masterpiece ?. It defies logic.

    Supracuhz - you certainly won't get any stick from me over GIT - It's a pretty close second in my book.

    The best scent ever is the scent of a woman. Unsurprisingly, it's made up of all natural ingredients and lasts forever

    The scent of only a few select women for me! In my short life time, I've met many women who smell terrible. (And even more men that smell horrible actually) The phrase "wet dog" comes to mind. Man, now people would think I go around smelling strangers!

    As for favorite scent, I really love the smell of rain. Here's more info on the scent:

    L'eau Petrichor [Rain] (B.C. 4.6 billion years)
    House: Mother Earth
    Perfumer: Depending on your beliefs, either a divine entity, or a "random set of events after the Big Bang."
    Notes: Geosmin, Lightning ion, dust particles, wet dirt, plant oils, Actinomycete spores
    Reformulations: 3 Billions of Years a go, clouds began to form. 0.5 billion year ago: Oxygen began to saturate the atmosphere.

    Fun fact: Do you know that the smell of rain is stronger in desert regions? Yes, that's the limited edition EDP formula available only in desertified areas!



    ...And if forced to choose an actual frag -- sorry, but can't single one out!

    I want to think it's a reference to an old Eiffel 65 song, Dub In This Life (I think that's the title) "what is dub, dub in this life"

    Always good to meet someone with similar taste in music

    Dubstep, on the other hand, I dislike. No offense to those who dig it -- but to me its pure trainwreck -- I could trainwreck after trainwreck and call it a dubstep set.

    To answer the original question again, besides the scent of a woman, I'll have to agree with Pour_Monsieur : it's Spirituese Double Vanille for me too.

    On topic, I don't think I could pick a best scent ever as Im pretty sure I haven't tried it yet.

    It's difficult to choose since my favourite smell, Mitsouko, isn't my most versatile fragrance, while my second favourite, Vol de Nuit, is much more versatile. However, you asked about the best fragrance and not the best smell, so I'll go with Vol de Nuit!

    Perhaps the finest constructed of those I own: Ungaro II.

    It's not my favorite, though, but it is a masterpiece imo (of course the question remains: is it a masterpiece in Paco Sweet's opinion? :bounce
