    Best Longevity? Black Aoud and Red Aoud tied.
    Worst Longevity? Yohji Homme
    Most Projection? Black Aoud and Red Aoud tied.
    Least Projection? Yohji Homme, Bvlgari Pour Homme and Idole tied
    Most Versatile? Black Aoud.
    Hardest To Wear? The ones I am currently trying to offload, and those I rate below 3 stars. They don't necessarily have to be challenging scents. If something smells mediocre, or steers away from my preferences, I'll naturally find it hard to want to wear them.
    Most Synthetic Smelling? I've smelled a handful, but I only own a decant of Skai.
    Most Natural Smelling? In this context, would "Natural" also mean "realistic"? Anyways, by my own terms and definitions, it has to be Chene (wood) .
    Most Chemical Smelling? I'll get back to this in a while.... Edit: Aigner X-limited - chemical, sugared water.

    To me synthetic is a good smell, and chemical is more of a bad smell. For example, Joop! is very synthetic but I enjoy it and I don't get any chemical aromas like cleaning products, too much alcohol, or certain unpleasant odors such as feces, urine, garbage, or the smell when something overheats and fries.

    Least synthetic smelling. Fresh squeezed lemons, fresh cut grass, the ocean, sliced apples, etc. Realistic, sure.
