    Default Designer Frag World Cup - USA

    Welcome to the designer fragrance world cup. Four countries this week, and four next week / in a fortnights time, depending on volume in responses, in 8 seperate polls. Each country will have four or five design houses competing for a position to represent them in a knockout round (winners from first round grouped into fours) and then a final.
    Each country has no more than six options.
    Should be quite fun.

    This week I am going to do France, Italy, USA and UK. Next week, Spain, Japan, Germany, Switzerland.

    The houses chosen to represent their nations will go on to a semifinal against three others. Winner of France; USA; Germany; Japan in Semifinal group 1 and winner of Italy; UK; Spain; Switzerland in semifinal group 2.

    When selecting......
    Please only consider MAINSTREAM (NON-EXCLUSIVE); MASCULINE/UNISEX line offerings.

    Your choices for USA (and some of their star releases):

    Aramis (Aramis; Havana; New West; Aramis 900; Chromatics; Devin; Tuscany; Portos; JHL)

    CK (Calvin; Man; Be; One; Obsession; eternity; Escape)

    Donna Karan (Unleaded; Men; Fuel)

    Carolina Herrera (212 Men; CH Men; Chic; Herrera for Men)

    Ralph Lauren (Chaps; Safari; Polo series; Romance)

    Tom Ford (Grey Vetiver; Extreme; Ford for Men)

    I realise I have omitted many options... If you feel strongly they should be here, dont vote, and mention them in a reply. Enough of those and they might go through!

    Most of the competitors wouldn't have even been eligible for the qualifying rounds.

    Aramis all the way on that one.

    This should be great fun.

    I'm not a big fan of American perfumes.
    The only one I really like of all the ones
    mentioned is Obsession for Men, so, I'll
    go with Calvin Klein.

    Aramis without hesitation.

    The consistently high quality of the whole Tom Ford lineup earns my vote.

    Aramis followed by Tom Ford. Halston and Geoffrey Beene are glaring omissions.

    I'm sticking with Ralphie since Polo Black is still garnering compliments wherever I go. Can't miss with that one....Plus Polo (original) and Polo Blue were true monuments in the industry. I respect their contributions to perfumery....
    Summer Rotation:

    Versace Pour Homme by Versace
    Cool Water Game by Davidoff
    Tom Ford Grey Vetiver
    H.M. by Hanae Mori
    Vettiveru by Commes Des Garçons
    Love & Luck by Ed Hardy
    Riverside Drive by Bond No. 9

    If smelling good was a crime, I'd be serving a lifetime sentence....

    Why is Aramis considered a "designer frag"? What is it that Aramis "designs"? To my knowledge, all they make are fragrances and related skin care products. Sure, they have affiliates like Kors and Hilfiger in that business, but so does Guerlain via its LVMH ownership. Yet Guerlain was excluded from this polling.

    are we supposed to not consider the tom ford private blend since that is basically a niche line?

    Yes. John Varvatos for the trendier set as well. I did have a tough time leaving Halston out, but its not as current as the ones i have above.

    Aramis for life. I have four of them and they are all perfection. Still need to get my hands on 900, 900 Herbal and JHL
    ...because for Viktor & Rolf, fashion and fragrance are “antidotes to reality, against which there is just one weapon: dreams.”
