    X2 Egoiste. Its probably the best one on your list with Xeryus rouge being second.

    Of the one's listed, I only have real experience with one-Xeryus Rouge and for me it's a winner. It's quite unique due to the cactus and peppers, but I think it's well balanced and awesome. It is spicy and definitely a warmer frag. It's got some awesome sillage and longevity if sprayed directly...for me, it's a bit much for a direct spray, I spray it from arms length and it tones it down. It can be a powerhouse if sprayed too much that's for sure.

    My suggestions in your list are Egoiste (regular) and then M7. Egoiste is a smooth sandalwood, good for all occasions. M7 is darker and somewhat more unique. Both have very good sillage and longevity.

    Chanel Egoiste and YSL M7 are the best ones on your list. If you have possibility, try to sample or get YSL Opium Pour Homme EDP. It is same kind fragrance like La Nuit De L'homme, but smoother, richer, better and much more unique and interesting scent. Good luck!

    Chanel Egoiste, M7, Versace Dreamer, Dior Homme Intense and VC&A ph all excel in meeting, fulfilling all three requirements

    I think Dior Homme Intense stands out in terms of your criteria. The only thing that smells like it is Dior Homme!

    Guys i tried The Dreamer and just didnt like it...

    Dior homme intense was very good but i still have half a bottle of A*men remaining... Dont need another scent with cocoa as of now...

    What do you guys suggest from the YSL house - M7 or Opium ph or La Nuit EDP/EDT?

    I think you would enjoy YSL M7.

    For me Havana is the nicest and most unique fragrance from your list. It is fresh and it spreads a very present tobacco(the green plant)note. Great sillage and longevity. Attention: it is easily oversprayed!

    OP said 4 posts above you that he doesn't like The Dreamer, and DHI was very good but will skip it considering he still has A*Men.

    ---

    @OP, My vote goes to YSL M7, since you're looking at YSL house. It is long-lasting, unique, and will project well. If you can find a tester, try Egoiste (not platinum) and Xeryus Rouge by Givenchy. I haven't tried Havana so no comment on it yet.

    I have tried and loved M7... but i still need to test Opium PH EDP as a fellow basenoter suggested....

    the longevity of XR seems a bit strange... i tried it a couple of times... sometimes it lasts a lot and sometimes it goes undetectable after an hour...

    Will check out on Aramis Havana and Egoiste...

    Also, no one here talks about Platinum Egoiste.... is it not good enough???

    well...take a look at my username! That's the perfect one, in terms of everything!
    But VC&Aph and Havana can be difficult to wear so give those 2 a few tries first!
    Ok, leaving VC&Aph, Havana, The Dreamer and DHI aside, my advice would be Xeryus Rouge but if you consider one from YSL then I'd say M7

    Using that logic you shouldn't own both PR 1Million and Terre d'Hermes because they both contain a grapefruit note right? My point is that DHI smells nothing like A*men and it fits your criteria the best IMO.

    And Platinum Egoiste is nice enough and may be more appealing to people your age, but it's not nearly as good as regular Egoiste.

    ...oh, and about Xeryus Rouge: it opens beautifully, but after two minutes all that remains is a mediocre, 13-in-a-dozen, I've smelled it all before smell...missed chance: I sold mine!

    Xeryus Rouge

    By your age and collection I would say you enjoy compliments/want to impress the ladies when you go out so my vote goes towards La Nuit

    I'd second Xeryus Rouge and Versace Dreamer.
    Will add YSL Body Kouros, Annayaké Pour Lui (if you can find it) and Uomo? Moschino. Consider at least sampling them once.

    Regards, Odor.

    I am going to suggest Platinum Egoiste.

    It has above average projection and longevity. It is versatile and brings that Chanel quality to the table.

    It is not very unique for its category but nonetheless, it is a bright, floral, sorta soapy, kind of fragrance.

    Worth sampling for sure

    I tried Egoiste and Egoiste platinum.... but personally i like M7 and Xeryus Rouge more...

    Is there any fragrance which can replace Leau D issey pour homme... i like that and want something for summers which smells fresh and has good sillage with longevity like leau d issey???

    Also, hows Opium ph EDP compared to M7??? I cant find the testers for Opium Ph EDP

    Be aware that many basenoters don't care how old you are because they have a conviction that you should not use fragrance to please others but to please yourself. In addition, tastes tend to classic/retro fragrances (many even despise mainstream tastes for having "destroyed" the art of perfumery). So, when you ask for advice on this board, you will often get suggestions for fragrances that are more mature, or even have a dated/daddy/granddaddy vibe, to most people.

    Because of this, my advice is to try before you buy.
