    Thumbs up Male Fragrance Experts, Your Top 5 Fragrances

    I am interested in seeing the differences that you prefer since you are all technically your own professional 'noses'.

    I personally prefer masculine light but long lasting fragrances.

    Patou Pour Homme
    Comme des Garcons -Avignon
    Andy Tauer - L'Air du Desert Marocain
    Chanel - Cuir de Russie
    Lutens - Fumerie Turque

    Tomorrow the list might be different. But these ones tend to stay in the top ten...

    As of now, it'll look like this;

    - Égoïste (always my number one)
    - Dior Homme (Intense)
    - Xeryus Rouge (Xeryus is good too, but Rouge is just a wee bit better)
    - Opium pour Homme (I prefer the EdP over the EdT)
    - Dioressence (pour femme, but very unisex)

    My faves lately:
    Tom Ford--Tobacco Vanille
    Tom Ford--Moss Breches
    Nasomatto--Hindu Grass
    Aramis--Havana
    Lalique--Encre Noir

    Chriisz, out of your top 5, I really like Antidote the best. Love the top notes all the way into drydown. Get the after shave lotion as well. It's very nice and lasts pretty long.
    Your nostrils, which will dilate immesurably in unspeakable contentment, in motionless ecstasy, will ask nothing better for space, for they will be full of fragrance, as if perfumes and incense; for they will be glutted with complete happiness, like angels who dwell in the peace and magnificence of pleasent heaven.

    I can't really choose an order but my top 5 are probably

    Drakkar Noir: I used to wear this in high school, but gave my bottle to a friend to find other stuff, but recently tried it again the other day, and WOW! It just smells so damn amazing on me, and probably better than it did when I was 15-17. I don't know why I ever quit wearing it.

    Azzaro PH: Even though it seems weak(which is contrary to the reviews) I love the way it smells, and I can't see myself liking anything better than Azzaro PH.

    Azzaro Chrome: Probably the absolute best aquatic fresh smelling frag, and it actually has some strength, and lasting ability.

    Fahrenheit Doir: I actually liked Lucky#6 before I heard of Fahrenheit, and I loved it, but then I tried Fahrenheit, and it is much better than Lucky

    Joop: It just smells unlike anything else I have smelled before almost like sweet-tarts or some other sweet but a little sour.

    Honorable mention to Stetson, Stetson Black(best black smell I know of), Avatar, Cigar, and Grey Flannel(just tried it and love it).

    Just dipping my toe in, but of my 100+ samples, these are the five I'd consider for future purchases:

    Habit Rouge (my first true love)
    Heritage (my second)
    Cuir de Russie (takes getting used to, but man, she's heady)
    Daim Blond (multiple personalities)
    Declaration (schizophrenic)

    I like my women a bit crazy too.
