    It's a fine question, it is just sort of unanswerable.

    We could all tell you our favorite of all time, but then you'd get hundreds of different answers. It's a bit like the "What Scents Do Women Dig" sticky....over time, everything shows. The beauty of that thread it is that it has gone on so long, pretty much all the scents are mentioned at least once.

    Some may say Cool Water or Curve, while others who are more into reading GQ magazine will say Fierce or Antidote. I think the better question is "What is your number one favorite?" Mine is Fahrenheit, hands down. Asking what the "best" cologne is is like asking what the best pizza is.. opinions aren't facts. As opposed to asking what the best car on the road is -- which can be backed up.

    It is not a difficult question. It depends on who you ask. The question is, therefore, what is the best fragrance in your estimation?

    So, the guy asked which is the best male fragrance ever made, and because you all feel very super smart, you didn't answer him because it's subjective. Well exactly, it's subjective, and he asks for your opinion.

    My answer is : Green Irish Tweed (at the moment) (constantly changing)

    ^^ Not a difficult question, correct. It is a difficult answer which is why many people including yourself haven't even answered it in this thread.

    Amen to that!

    The best in the world for me is Égoïste,
    closely followed by Dior Homme and Intense;
    Givenchy pour Homme; Fahrenheit; and Jaïpur.

    IMHO:

    The best overall is Ambre Narguile which is marketed as a unisex.

    The best male marketed scent is Dior's Fahrenheit.

    My subjective view is that Habit Rouge makes a good benchmark. If one looks upon perfumery as Art, one instinctively knows that 'best' is not possible, and certainly not desirable. It's as if saying: this is the furthest you'll ever get at life, you might as well stop now.

    Yes, this is almost impossible to answer, but here goes:

    Paco Rabanne Pour Homme

    Why? Because for me it embodies perfectly everything I look for in a masculine scent: it's timeless, manly, strong, smooth, long lasting, perfectly balanced. It also happens to be the fragrance I'd pick if God told me that I could only wear one fragrance for the rest of my life.

    But then again, this is all subjective.

    I'll be different and answer this question directly: Serge Lutens Chergui. Viewing fragrance as art, it is the piece which has had the most profound affect on me. Surely it will change one day, and I look forward to discovering the fragrance which takes it's place as my #1.

    Thanks for setting the record straight. I had previously called Creed about this frag but they told me it was made by the god Anubis when he worked for Oliver's ancestors back in 80,000 BC when Creed set up Their Most Royal Shop in Atlantis, not Egypt.

    I like Creeds, but they do tend to exaggerate a bit in their marketing . . .

    The best scent ever has yet to be made.

    I suppose it should come close to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5J50...eature=related

    Though the protagonist found that getting the ingredients for it proved um---messy.

    The best I can do would be to give you a list of my 5 star scents, which I'm too lazy to do right now but you can look them up in my wardrobe below, then check out the reviews to determine how well they've been constructed.

    Patou PH and Original Dunhill '34 are shoo-ins on both counts, but that's just my opinion, besides even if they were 'objectively' 5 stars scents and masterfully created, they might not be your cup of tea, anyway.
    You're going to have to search for the one or the ones.

    *sigh*

    This hobby is not fattening, but it does get to be expensive.

    Cheers,

    Mario

    This would be my answer as well, though I was contemplating whether or not it qualifies since it's generally seen as unisex. If not then Green Irish Tweed.
