    Chypre really does seem to be a monster classification. So many of the fragrances listed above seem like polar opposites. That said, my favorite of the class, as I understand it, is Claude Montana's Parfum de Peau. It's intense, yet sparkling- and my favorite packaging of all time.

    If this frag may also qualify as chypre, then it's Armani Eau pour Homme for me

    I'm not really a fan of traditional chypres, I find them too old fashioned, but I must say I love Amoauge Dia.

    Just so we are clear, everyone is pronouncing "chypre" the proper (aka Ash 4245) way, yes?

    The old Pour Monsieur, though the more I experience Mitsouko...

    Is that a chypre? I thought both men's and women's were Orientals.

    Oops. They very well may be. As lazy as it sounds, I rarely pay attention to the classifications of scents, so I have difficulty breaking it down. I thought I heard it mentioned somewhere as a chypre.

    Ok.
    First: Thanks everybody for your answers. Your Answers were very useful for me.
    Second: I meaned CHYPRE itself. No Citrus Aromatics or Aromatic Fougeres.... i have very poor information about fragrances
    What's the point that you say Sauvage is Chypre? is it in subcategories of Chypre? I thought it's Citrus Aromatic.

    Aramis, Aramis 900, Tiffany for Men. Never thought of V&C PH and Kouros as a chypres but looking at the notes, they fit the bill.

    manicboy,

    Van Cleef & Arpels pour Homme is a leather chypre, but Kouros is an aromatic fougere.

    I agree. I keep trying to like Mitsouko, but it is hard work.

    I also do not get chypre notes from Eau Savage.
