    I don't think I have found a "best" yet because all the ones I have smelled to date mess one facet of the fragrance or another up even when the pineapple is done right. So my answer is "none".
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)

    For pineapple done right, Rivages des Syrtes-MDCI Patricia de Nicolai at her best.

    Donna Karan Fuel for Men is a good one with pineapple. The note is more subdued than in Aventus. I recently tried another pineapple, Lonach by Castle Forbes. I found that one a bit sickly.

    I'm not sure about this one, the pineapple note is barely detectable if any at all. The basil is more pronounced than the pineapple.

    Another one I've come across is the peculiar Mage d'Orient by Comptoir Sud Pacifique. Also contains coconut, lime, lychee. Quite nice but not the best quality ingredients IMHO.

    Yes, it can be challenging. Realistic as the pineapple is, pairing it with the sweetish "Taylor of Bond Street"esque sandalwood didn't do both accords and the frag many favours. I still love Lonach for the mess it really is.
    ointments and perfume delight the heart....

    Top-shelf: Kouros Fraicheur.
    Cheap, but very good: Nautica Blue (a Maurice Roucel creation)

    Curious to try: Burberry London for Men Special Edition 2009...if anyone knows, please share some thoughts. I would appreciate it.

    And, ironically one to mention that I just tried for the first time recently (by sample) - Canali Men (a Pierre Bourdon creation from 2005!) Impressed me - a very interesting composition.

    Cheers,
