    Bel Ami or Mitsouko EDT (though I've only smelled the vintage EDT, don't know about the current one).

    Equipage and Bel Ami - becuase this is the f'ing men's forum.

    Bel Ami and Equipage. These are great scents. What about Adam I am not familiar with and the other two are ones the girls at my office wear and I find them overly feminine IMO.

    Of the five, I've only tried Shalimar EDP and Mitsouko EDP. I would recommend both. They smell great, last a long time, and I rarely, if ever, encounter anyone else wearing them. I am not sure where they fall on the masculine/feminine scale. Guess I'm becoming indoctrinated into the "fragrance is genderless" belief.

    Bel Ami is the only one I can recommend. Shalimar and Mitsuko were very nice, but WAY too feminine for me to consider wearing. Never tried the other two

    I own the first 4 and love them all. Tough one. I would say:

    Shalimar
    Bel Ami

    I would have said Mitsouko instead of Bel Ami but it might be too feminine.

    For me to recommend something it depends upon the circumstances. It's difficult to recommend something without knowing a few specifics.

    What are you looking for? Will you wear them frequently or are they frags you just want to add to your collection? Do you want something sweet or dry? Do you want something easy to get or harder to find?

    Do you just want to know which ones that I like best without regard to any of your own criteria? If so, how will my preferences help you?

    I decided on Bel Ami and Mitsouko EDP, which is apparently better than the EDT (according to Fragrantica.com).

    Hey Noggs! I was just looking for the best fragrances listed (your opinion). I'm still interested if you want to disclose.

    The first four are all really good. But I'll say the best are:

    Shalimar
    Mitsouko

    I'm only familiar with What About Adam, and I can't recommend it - I recall harsh limes and little else of interest.

    So I'm late to the party, but I say Shalimar and... I guess Mitsouko. Mitsy doesn't do anything for me, but I have to admit to its quality, reputation, technical merits, etc. Personally I'd go for Euipage as a second. Nice and smokey. Only because I haven't smelled Bel Ami yet. But you can't really go wrong with the older Hermes'. What About Adam was fun for five minutes and them grew tiresome.

    Glad to see you settled on the Mitsouko edp. The Guerlain edps tend to have a nice balance between depth and sillage.
