    The answer to this question was always going to be between these 5.

    4 of which I dislike and 1 that is good but not FBW in my humble opinion.

    Best Designer fragrances of the last decade or so ( I can't just pick one) :

    Lauder Brasil Dream for Him
    YSL Rive Gauche pour Homme
    Burberry London
    YSL M7 ( either formula, but I strongly prefer newer one)
    Gucci pour Homme ( 2003 )
    CD Dior Homme
    Caron L'Anarchiste
    Michael Kors for Men
    TM Mugler Cologne
    Cartier Must l'essence pour Homme
    St Dupont Signature pour Homme
    Helmut Lang Cuiron
    CD Fahrenheit Absolute
    JPG Fleur du Male


    - 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.

    My favorite from these is Terre d'Hermes.

    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.

    These five seem to be the most obvious choices. I guess it's a matter of taste, but I don't love them. I feel like Dior Homme is too feminine for me to get comfortable (and it's loud). Terre d'Hermes is good but it gets a little sharp and can be grating, I think. I see the artistry in it though. I get more mileage out of the others, but, with the exception of Rive Gauche, I don't think they hold a candle to any number of designer fragrances from previous decades.

    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.

    Pure Malt

    Default Re: Best designer fragrance of the last decade or so

    Terre D'hermes.

    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.

    Terre d'Hermes

    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...

    I have the TdH pure Parfum, I do love the scent and artistry, it's one of the best designer scents, but because of its sharpness, doesn't get much wrist time. YSL M7 is the best designer frag of the last ten or so years that I've smelled.

    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

    In random order:

    Terre D'Hermes
    Gucci Pour Homme I
    YSL Rive Gauche Pour Homme
    Lalique Encre Noir
    Dior Homme and Dior Homme Intense

    Somehow, I haven't tried YSL M7 yet...
