    Default Top 5 Designer Fragrances

    What are your top 5 designer fragrances? Mine are:

    1. Dior Homme. The best designer I have ever smelled. Period.
    2. Versace The Dreamer. Similar to Dior Homme, powdery floral heaven.
    3. Thierry Mugler Angel Men Pure Malt. The best designer gourmand for men.
    4. Kenzo Power. A beautifully constructed floral for men.
    5. Dior Farenheit. Either you love this or hate this. I love it.

    In no particular order:

    Ungaro II - one of the best citrus-civet.
    Bvlgari Pour Homme - my favorite designer stealth/discreet scent.
    Hermes Hiris - one of the few designer iris soliflores that I really enjoy.
    Capucci Punjab - favorite "powerhouse".
    Yohji Yamamoto Yohji Homme - my favorite coffee-rum scent.

    Honorable mention: Bvlgari Aqva - though aquatics are not a favorite genre now, this (and Erolfa) is one of the best, IMO.

    Eau d'Hermes is number one for me, after that making any kind of list is painfully hard. I like many, but have problems deciding which deserve place in top 5.

    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."
