    Chypres don't get better than Eau de Patou

    Eau de Patou is my favourite.
    Mitsouko PdT from the 80s.
    Acqua di Parma Profumo is also very nice.

    Maybe Aramis. No, Yatagan. No, Eau Sauvage. No! Chanel PM!

    I really don't know...there are so many cyphre subcategories that are so different from one another...

    Hands down, my two favorite chypres are Aramis 900 and Yatagan.
    I like these two in particular because they both have an edgy pungency to them that holds all the way through the drydown, which is a very rare thing to find.

    Is Acqua di Parma Profumo unisex? It sounds lovely, but I've always heard it's more feminine than, say, Mitsouko.

    For me, this one is my favorite. If you've never smelled it, I feel sorry for you. The new version is good, but nothing like as good as the 1930 version.

    L'Arte di Gucci - I find I really only like really dark, dense chypres like this.

    On others: Mitsouko (my mom's and grandma's signature scent, so I really couldn't imagine wearing it)

    On anyone: Pour Monsieur

    (Incidentally, though far from my favorite, Balmain de Balmain is a great (green) chypre bargain (marketed as a feminine, but totally unisex IMO) that often doesn't get the love it deserves.)
