    In my opinion, these three houses have a fairly equal amount of quality male fragrances and I would also add another classic French house: Guerlain, as in spite of various ups and downs, has put forward a pretty constant ratio of quality male frags

    I'd say Chanel or Dior because I find YSL too mature for my likings.
    Acqua di Giò is my guilty pleasure. What's yours?

    Yeah, Hermes has quite an impressive line. My favorite non-niche house. Of the listed ones, I'd say all are clearly more competent/qualitatively better than designer houses, with Cartier like you said still being above the mob, but still behind Dior, Chanel, and YSL. Shouts to Gaultier and Mugler for doing Daring stuff, but qualitatively they're still part of the fray.

    If I had to choose one of those listed by the OP, on the basis of strictly their masculines, it'd be YSL.

    Well me personally - i cant answer this question the way you want it to be answered, because i am a very firm believer in the notion that fragrances do not have genders. That being said Guerlain has the most male FRIENDLY scents followed very closely by Chanel. Unles you count the exclusive line of both these houses, in which case reverse the order.

    I appreciate that YSL's offerings become reasonably priced after a period of time. Its great that you can get a quality fragrance for $25, Its very close, but I would give my personal preference to Dior - more fragrances by them that I enjoy.

    If you include the Dior Privee line then I guess you have to pick Dior just because of the sheer number.

    But Chanel has Egoiste and you cant beat that.

    What about Fragonard?

    Zizania, Desert, Concerto, Vetyver, Sieste, Papa cherie, Mesonge and many more, they kick ass and leave Dior, Chanel and YSL in the dust.

    YSL, but they seem on destroying their image with cookie cutter flankers.

    YSL

    I find YSL to be the masculine to Chanel's feminity, proceed to tell me now how there are unisex and blah blah blah, I still find the majority of Chanels to be aimed at females and YSLs at males.

    YSL - la nuit de L'homme, M7, L'homme, libre
    Dior - homme/intense/sport, Fahrenheit
    Chanel - bleu, allure homme/sport/edition Blanche

    These are the fragrances I use frequently. As for best, for me, these rotate from top 1 - 3 depending on the day/season

    YSL no doubt. It's sad to see the direction they're heading, though.

    Of the three listed, YSL. I'm a huge fan of Kouros, Opium pH, Live Jazz and La Nuit, all of which I own. I'm also keen to pick up Rive Gauche and M7.
    I don't have a signature fragrance. My signature changes a little bit every day, why shouldn't my fragrance?

    Let's see, the ones I like (from their mass-market releases, including recently discontinued frags) are ...

    YSL: M7, Rive Gauche, Opium EdP
    Dior: Homme, Homme Intense, Eau Sauvage Parfum, Fahrenheit
    Chanel: Egoiste, Pour Monsieur

    If you like Kouros and Jazz, etc. then YSL is probably the best bet. For me it works out to Dior by the numbers. If I had to pick a favorite of those sets above, though, it would be a tough call between the YSLs and the Chanels. Probably the YSLs, since Pour Monsieur is so wimpy these days.

    Put Guerlain in the competition and its no contest for me - Habit Rouge, Heritage, Imperiale, du Coq, Eau de Guerlain, L'Instant Extreme, and Jicky, and Mitsouko if I can count those ...
