    WOW, 8 votes, and no for Antaeus yet!

    I voted for Égoïste, nothing gets near that!

    Antaeus, but admittedly, Egoiste is a close second in my book and none of the others matter (yes I've tested them).

    Throw No 19., Cuir de Russie, Bois des Iles, and No. 5 Eau Premiere into the mix and then we have a horse race.

    Yes PM is nice, but lots of other chypres I'd rather wear and it's so light and conservative (which also makes it great and classic i guess, but not pour moi).

    Most definitely Anteus in my book. If I had to nitpick, it's only issue might be versatility, i.e, might not be good during the summer or for situations where discretion is preferred.

    Great fragrance all of them , hard to say wich one is best , they are not simillare , they are totaly different , totaly special , there is no way to compare this faboulous fragrances ...

    Chanell Allure Edition Blanch - best for summer
    Chanel Homme Sport - best for spring
    Chanel Pour Monsieur Concentree - best for autumn
    Chanel Egoist - greatest name of all ....

    Default Re: Best Chanel Fragrance For Men

    I am clearly in a minority, but I would have to pick Pour Monsieur Concentree. Not only is it my favourite, but I also find it the most versatile

    Egoiste by a country mile for me. Antaeus second. PM third. None of the others finished the race.....

    Egoiste is my favorite and Antaeus is an excellent runner-up. I own and use both. Due to reformulation, Antaeus has been toned down from what it was in the 1980s and Egoiste has been toned down from what it was in the 1990s. This has made each of them more suitable for me to wear to work.

    Pour Monsieur ahead of Antaeus, tight call. If only the former had the latter's longevity.

    Égoïste for me, too. Antaeus would have been my second choice.

    Egoiste IF we are talking about vintage formulation
    but then again Antaeus in vintage formulation is no joke either
    if we were to compare the current formulations, Antaeus has no rival, hands down!

    I like Antaeus, Egoiste and CPM Concentree. But I can't get any of them to last more than 4-5 hours. What does YSL do so differently? Kouros and RGPH don't quit. Last a whole day at work and into evening...

    None of the above - Egoiste Concentree is the best IMO.

    +2 Roger that. Yes, I know. there's an elusive bottle of PM somewhere that's never been reformulated.
    It is The Holy Grail.
    Good luck finding it.

    1. Antaeus--which I maintain to be evening wear, and more than one spritz to your chest is way too much
    2. Egoiste, close second.
