    I'll grant that it's a pleasant smell. But better than Azzaro Pour Homme? Better than Rive Gauche?
    Oh, I've been wearing Paco for years and I never tire of it. It's the closest thing to a perfect fragrance for me: it's timeless, appropriate for all occassions, it's super masculine, it's strong, it has great staying power, it's got great sillage, it's so comfortable to wear, etc. I could go on and on. I just love it. Plus, the intense green smell of Paco Rabanne is intoxicating.

    I think the only reason Paco Rabanne may smell generic to some people is because it has been copied by other fragrances for so long. It's still a benchmark for what an aromatic fougere is. Even Kouros was heavily influenced by it.

    Thumbs up Re: What is your absolute number one favorite fragrance of all time?

    I have been wearing Tabac Original EDC since 1973, and it is my 'desert island fragrance.' Dozens and dozens of other fragrances have come and gone, but Tabac Original remains. I also love the EDT, which is subtly different. There are so many other fragrances that I love, but for me, none will ever equal my precious Tabac Original by Mäurer & Wirtz!

    I am eligible for Gucci Pour Homme rich with nucklear blast of incense, cedar, leather burning a hole under that make a pleasure, I can not imagine how it would go. Gucci PH is Masculine, Elegant, intriguing and Intense. I never felt when I lost even in the heat or cold. Although many condemned the aroma of pencil shaving and church catholic incense... but it is not just for hating. Hopefully, there will always be Gucci anywhere without discontinued.

    The first bottle of Silver Mountain Water I bought was the best juice that has ever touched my skin. Since then, I have found subsequent bottles WAY too metallic.

    I suppose it will be no surprise if I mention that my all time favorite is Mitsouko? I did not think so. Well, it still is and ever shall be.

    I always think of Aqua Velva Frost Lime and my Dad slapping a little on my face along with his after he was done shaving. I know generic and boring pedestrian juice.

    That said, my favourite to wear right now is Floris Special No. 127. It gets some bad reviews, but I find it very charming, clean and uplifting. Together with the history behind it I just enjoy it so. Guess I know what I am wearing tomorrow.

    Halston Z-14 with Creed's Baie de Genievre a close second. One costs $10 at Marshalls and the other $200 at Bergdorf's--go figure. Love is blind in its choosing....

    Why have my fellow Guerlineurs not chimed in yet? Of course, I am referring to Habit Rouge. I would take Heritage or almost any other Guerlain as a close second.

    Great fragrance. A favourite of mine too.

    Personally I find it impossible to cite an absolute favourite, I can only talk in terms of current Top Tens.

    My favorite is a 14 years old oudh&turkish rose from al qurashi.
    I get some each year but the scent is always different.

    that one vial I have have been reduced to a tiny bit of sticky goop, but smells divine.
