    I only sniffed Chinatown on a blotter once, but I remember thinking it was too floral for my tastes. They call it a unisex, but I think most people would consider it a feminine.

    Iris Silver Mist deserves its place. There really is no other iris like it.

    ( For the record, I've tried lots of others, including uber-niche darling IriSsS, lately touted as a rival. )

    I have never tried the above so cannot comment on them.

    I have no problem rating all the rest 5 except:

    Beyond Paradise, which I found oddly synthetic and characterless.
    Ormonde Man, bad cedar thing happening, a 2 for me.
    Eau Sauvage & Chanel Pour Homme which have both been reformulated to hell, now maybe worth a 3.
    Dior Homme, which I consider a 3 or 4. It's good, but not that good (I have the first edition release).
    Cool Water, which is just GIT redone for wider release a few years later therefore a 3.
