    Out of these fragrances, pick the one you like the most.

    I'd like to purchase a fragrance, and as I'm not Bill Gates, it's very hard to decide. Gimme a hand here, will you ?

    It was close between XXV and Chergui for me. Almost to close to call, but I chose XXV in the end.

    Chergui, with Back to Black, a close 2nd.

    Interesting, Jubilation XXV seems to dominate all the others. I find this particular fragrance very strange and beautiful but very hard to wear, don't get me wrong, there are very few very special situations in my life I would wear this amazing fragrance.

    I like Jubilation, but it feels like the height of costume perfumery to me. It's beautiful, but feels like I'm wearing a bright purple hat or something. Or maybe more like wearing a $3000 silk suit that everyone notices.
    I am much more comfortable wearing some of the others on the list.

    I voted for Fumerie Turque by Serge Lutens as I have become addicted to most things Lutenesque.

    Serge Lutens Chergui has the same score as Jubilation XXV. I stated before why I cannot purchase XXV, so the order for Chergui has been placed. It should arrive before 2011. Thank you all for your time.

    I voted for Jubilation XXV but Chergui really ties for 1st place in that list as far as what I like best.

    I hear you, Slim, about the excessive showiness of this frag. If I ever bought this, I would also pick up a bottle of Carolina Herrera CH Men to wear when I wanted to smell JXXV while going to the car wash in my dirty jeans. It's like a really cheap but really good imitation of it, with ashy tobacco instead of incense, and with the fruit intact and the woods almost there. Surprisingly good, and totally wearable. It's frags like CH Men that make some people just question the value of stuff like JXXV. Of course *I* don't question it (), but I can understand why some folks simply balk at dropping the coin for the best, when damn good costs a fifth as much.
