    +1 for Bogart frags, they are incredible.
    Aramis: the pure tradition of powerhouses, no doubt.
    Ambre Russe is boxin in the same league.

    Aramis

    It's in my top 10, but I never wear more than 2 sprays. Most frequently, I wear only one 1 spray.

    Egoiste is just one of those fragrances that I don't 'get', at least yet

    I've given it several (albeit quick, at a store) tries and not only did it not strike me as remarkable, I don't even remember what it smells like

    Antaeus sounds good but Aramis probably would be most age appropriate for powerful and wealthy. Loud and projecting it could only be that untamed beast Kouros.

    M7 seems pretty powerful to me. At first if you're not careful with the sprayer it's almost overwhelming. Also, Tobacco Vanille is pretty strong stuff. Oh and both of these seem to feel pretty powerful too, along with Amouage Jubilation XXV if you want to feel really wealthy.

    Finally tried Aramis today

    Kouros feels like a quiet and tame baby next to it! Though, Kouros also feels more civilized, like a man in a nice suit, while Aramis feels like a leisure suit, a beer gut and a cigar.


    Funny story: I just found out my mother used to wear Aramis while I was younger. So much for the hyper-masculine association!
