    Default What is the most stunning fragerance you have ever experienced ?

    Le Labo Poirve 23 by far is best fragerance I have ever smelled thus far. From the initial application to the dry down nothing in my collection competes. My second place would be L'instant Exteme.

    To this day, its still Jean Paul Gaultier's Le Male. Do I know objectively that there are better fragrances? Maybe. But to me, Le Male is love. Its like a man that is madly in love with his wife. He sees Adrianna Lima, and he knows that objectively she might be more attractive than his wife, but to him, his wife is still the most beautiful woman on the planet. Its the only fragrance that evokes an emotion for me.

    For me, the best of all time.

    Whatever it is, it didn't come from a bottle or vial.

    1. Kouros/Fahrenheit
    2. Antaeus/Opium
    3. Platinum Egoiste/Egoiste
    4. Terre D'Hermés Pure Perfume/EDT
    5. Green Irish Tweed/Cool Water

    Can't tell which of these I prefer - they are all magic to me

    Tobacco Vanille.

    There's also something a little magical about Millesime Imperial for me. It's very uplifting and bubbly.

    That guy reminds me of Mango from SNL.

    That's awesome man! Well stated.

    Sadly, that photo seems misplaced. Doesn't really scream "man loving his wife" to me.

    Same, Tobacco Vanille is just magical to me. I smelled Pure Malt and Pure Havane, don't really have a preference but love them both.

    Invasion Barbare . It took a while for my senses to regroup after the first whiff which was pure pleasure.

    VIP for Men, or by its proper name, Giorgio Beverly Hills V.I.P Special Reserve. Spent years looking for anything that smelled even remotely like it. Fortunately I found a few "new" bottles reasonably priced a few years ago on ebay.

    Gucci Nobile ranks a very close second and I had similar luck on ebay finding some bottles still factory wrapped for a decent price. Prices for both are outrageous these days.
    I don't have a signature fragrance. My signature changes a little bit every day, why shouldn't my fragrance?

    too many to mention but the first time I smelled Sous Le Vent I was definitely stunned! Or Black was another one.

    Mona di Orio's Oud. No scent had such a strong effect on me as this one. It is simply alive.

    Agreed. But Creed Aventus and Chanel Allure Homme Sport Cologne Sport are just perfect for the hot weather in Brazil!
