    Not necessarily ones I like, but the ones that seem to be distinctly masculine and critically acclaimed classics. Still, VERY hard to pick just 5

    Creed Green Irish Tweed
    Chanel Egoiste
    Kouros
    Polo (original green)
    L'Instant de Guerlain Extreme

    I really think L'homme or La Nuit need to be on some of theses lists. All preferences aside, they are huge.

    i know everyone has there own opinion about what the bests are, but by common sense and majority opinion, what are the 5 greatest male fragrances of all time? im specifically looking to see if any recent fragrances make that list, for example a fragrance that im currently obsessing over: L'Instant de Guerlain
    I will not mention the 5 greatest in my opinion i will try to mention the 5 greatest, which are very popular and will stay in the fragrance history and which are easy to get (because Creed fragrances are not so easy to get as for example some by D&G ) !

    - Le Male by Jean Paul Gaultier
    - A*Men by Thierry Mugler
    - Dolce&Gabbana Pour Homme
    - Aqva Pour Homme Bvlgari
    - 1 Million by Paco Rabanne

    Again i will say these are not in my opinion the greatest

    But now i will tell you what should be the greatest of all time :

    - Antidote by Viktor & Rolf
    - Hombre by Victorio & Lucchino
    - Ultrared Men by Paco Rabanne
    - Pour L`Homme by Jacques Fath
    - Dior Homme Intense by Dior
    My astonishing Top 10 fragrances :

    1. Hombre by Victorio & Lucchino
    2. Antidote Viktor&Rolf
    3. Pure Havane Thierry Mugler
    4. Ambre Baldessarini
    5. Pure Malt Thierry Mugler
    6. Ultrared Men Paco Rabanne
    7. Jacques Fath pour L`Homme
    8. Silver Scent Jacques Bogart
    9. Chastity Men Rasasi
    10. Blue Sugar Aquolina

    The greatest men perfume ever created gotta be the original Vetiver by Guerlain, the version for sale today is just a pale shadow of the original. Anybody that had a chance to wear that masterpiece will back me up, it was awesome. Unfortunately it is impossible to get it today.
    Another great one was Patou pour Homme, another masterpiece not available anymore.
    Sashka Black by M. Micallef and J. Casanova pour Homme are not longer available either.
    Montana Parfume d'Homme would be my fifth great perfume of all times no longer available.

    Now among perfumes in the market now I would mention:

    Ungaro III
    Silver Water Mountain
    Tsar
    Himalaya
    and last a toss up between Vermeil for Men, Jacomo by Jacomo, Krizia Uomo and Basile Uomo. Can't decide among these four.

    Since the answer to the question in this case is subjective (unlike sports, which generally use official stats to rank players), the best way to answer this question, in my opinion is to list out the most popular/most sold fragrances.
    My knowledge of fragrances is limited, but here is my list, based on how little I know

    JPG - Le Male
    Armani - AdG
    Davidoff - Coolwater
    YSL - La Nuit De L'Homme
    Issey Miyake - L'Eau D'Issey

    Mind you, I am not particularly fond of half of this list.

    There are still tons I haven't tried, but of numerous ones I have tried:
    (in this order):

    VanCleef & Arpels pour homme
    Polo green
    Rive Gauche
    Costume National Homme
    Quorum

    Yeah... 3 out of 5 are "powerhouse" frags.
    I'll add that Paco Rabanne 1 Million is quite good, and women seem to like it alot.
