    Default Best/favorite mass market fragrance in the past 5 years?

    Only a handful come to mind for me. I believe the quality and originality put into most fragrances, especially mass marketers has decreased tremendously as the years come. Then again there are some great ones, but which one is the greatest? In your opinion of course. Nothing factual, nothing based on sales, or on Basenotes reviews, or reviews in general. What is YOUR best mass marketed/popular fragrance of the past 5 years.

    For me, it's a toss up between Corduroy, Tommy Bahama, Burberry London, Noir de Noir and TdH. All very close, but if I had to pick one that stands out the most, I'd go with Burberry London.

    It's a little too sweet, but Dior Homme (2005)

    Yes, it's derivitave, yes it's from Puffy,

    Is Baldessarini Ambre considered mass market? If so, that would be my favourite along with Black XS (the REAL 'Light Blue pour Homme')!

    I'd have to go with Dior Homme as well, although I suspect it's destined to become a cult favourite like Fahrenheit rather than something that will turn the market upside-down.

    Dior Homme but I must admit that I am enjoying Play Intense by Givenchy just as much these days. I need to revisit Dior Homme and gets meself another bottle lol.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    Comme des Garçons 2 Man
    OK, technically, it came out 6 years ago. I find CdG2 Man to be on of the most successful expressions of avante garde aesthetics brought to the mainstream fragrance market. When it first came out it was readily available at Sephora. No dumbing down effect here. A loud, lemon and smoke blast from the weird aldehydes.
