- I could add a few more for sure.
- It all really depends on a persons taste. I've never really been a big gourmand guy (since I started posting on BNs), so while a recognize the quality of Guerlain L'instant pour Homme Extreme, I can't add it to my list. My list is more on my personal preferences. Ditto for Dior Homme Intense and AMen Pure Coffee.
EDIT : I may have misinterpreted the OP's intention of the thread. I don't know if all of my choices will be considered the "new classics". But I do consider them to be the best of the best.

La Nuit De L'Homme
Comme des Garcons 2 Man
Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin
Halston Man Amber is up there for me. Does not get a lot of attention around here nor does it have the longevity but it smells fantastic. In my top 5 in this cat.
Christian Dior VetiverPatou Pour HommeChristian Dior Leather OudOrmonde Jayne Ormonde ManSerge Lutens Chene
For me, Paul Smith London. That's my 'wildcard' entry!
Along the lines of conventional wisdom, Dior Homme.
From my limited exposure I'm going to have to vote for Terre D'Hermes Pure Parfum.
I like it alot of course, but mostly I think its because its a top-seller and, unlike a lot of the other suggestions, it's not discontinued or on the verge of being discontinued.
Terre d'Hermes for me too, both edt and parfum. I flip-flop between which version I prefer.
I really didn't like it at first - the flinty/minerally character caught me by surprise. I tried it just before going running, and it grew on me quite a bit! Guess I have to try the other fragrances mentioned here...
Don't know about best but my top 3 would be....
Bulgari Black, La Nuit de L'homme and Pure Malt
Although from 98, and sadly discontinued.. I have to say Gucci Envy.
Aside from that, definitely in the past 10 years: TdH, VdH, Modern Reserve, Sycomore, Encre Noire, Vetiver Tonka, Ambre Narguile, Eau Duelle, Tam Dao, and a couple others.
If I had to just pick one though.. I would say TdH
