    There are many treasures by Polge. In the end I went with Cuir Beluga as it was a fragrance that really took my breath away when I first tried it.

    I mean, I do like Dior Homme, and I do like Kenzo's Boisee, and L'Homme Libre is ok in an Old Spice deodorant kind of way, but there's just a plasticky note in almost all of his scents that ultimately ruin them for me. His basic style is ok - synthetic, modern, fresh, direct - but there are other perfumers who do it more to my taste; Lucas Sieuzac, Emilie Copperman, and Christopher Laudamiel, namely.

    I take that back, his style is synthetic, modern, and direct - but not always so fresh. In fact, he often seems to have a bit of a Menardo touch to his compositions, but he never fully commits in that direction. For that reason, on any given day I'd much rather wear almost anything by Menardo than anything by Polge.

    I voted for Kenzo Power, an awesome scent.
    Dior Homme VINTAGE is awesome, though.

    Dior Homme is his best creation, and considering it's the prerequisite to my all time fave, very important too

    From your list, Cuir Beluga.

    Dior Homme is a great contender.

    I am torn between the following:

    Cuir Beluga by Guerlain - Upon application, one is treated to an entrancing melange. Sweet, orangey mandarin, along with its lovely, soft, floral hints, commingles with an everlasting flower, which proffers its syrupy, herbaceous, hay-like sweetness. And, magical aldehydes lift the captivating blend, adding an effervescence to the citrus and luster to the floral, as well as a soft, vanillin undercurrent. A burnt-sugar phantom can be sensed. Transitioning to the heart, heliotrope shrouds the opening with its cherry-vanilla and faintly almond aroma and powdery aspect. A luxurious and sensual, Spanish-leather illusion, reminiscent of the spice, citrus and floral components used in its tanning process, serves as a light underpinning for the delicate heliotrope. Segueing to the warm base, a sweet, almost creamy and floury vanilla, an aroma somewhat akin to vanilla custard combining with a pastry delicacy, interplays with a balsamic and warm amber. The sumptuous leather is still in the background. And, an impressive drydown ensues. This select and demurely elegant composition is a cool-weather, unisex scent, with average projection and good longevity, 8-10 hours.

    and

    Spicebomb by Viktor & Rolf - Upon application, one is treated to a somewhat refreshing, fruity and citric blend from the commingling of an orangey and peppery bergamot, the tangy bittersweetness of grapefruit and the mildly spicy fruitiness of pink pepper. And, an intriguing elemi showers the blend with its resinous and balsamic spiciness. Resultantly, an all-too-familiar, sweet, spicy, bubble-gum smell wafts to the waiting middle. Here, in the heart, the Bazooka-like opening is immersed in an enveloping stew of sweetly warm and earthy cinnamon, a pepperish paprika and a healthy dose of hay-like floral from saffron. A sweet, pipe tobacco undercurrent carries this inviting melange to the base. Here, the luxurious, cherry-almond, pipe tabacco comes into it own and interplays with the rich, green and smoky earthiness of vetiver. A faint background of a vanillic musk and leather present. A suave drydown ensues. This versatile and high-quality scent has good projection, with a 3-hour, scent cloud, and good longevity, 7-8- hours. However, this composition appears to have purloined its varied, scent paths from other, existing scents. And, although I give the fragrance a "Thumbs Up," it is given unenthusiastically because of the flagrant lack of originality.

    However, given my caution as to originality, I must come down on the side of Cuir Beluga by Guerlain
