    Get Le Male for sure.

    Get Burberry London (if you prefer a winter scent) or Allure Sport (if you prefer a summer scent).

    Armani Code and Bulgari Aqua are good, but just don't stand up to the others.

    La Nuit and Plat. Ego are not my cup of tea.

    I'd go with Allure Homme Sport for summer and Burberry London for the winter. I like Egoiste the best on your list, but it's an acquired taste.

    I would go with either Allure Homme Sport or Platinum Egoiste for summer & Le Male for winter. (or if Allure Homme Sport & Le Male are not your first choices, you could buy Versace Pour Homme & Perry Ellis 360 White if you want cheaper/similar options for those two. Le Male=360 White & AHS= VPH).

    Hey, purchase two for the summer and purchase one later, for the winter.
    Allure Homme Sport, Platinum Egoiste. Wait until it's cold out and buy B. London so you can smell like Xmas.

    Givenchy Play by Givenchy is really a good, all-season scent.

    Summer: Allure Homme Sport by Chanel - I dare say it is one of best, overall, summer fragrances ... a fantastic journey from its sharp, orange, citrus opening, through its imaginative, peppery, neroli and cedar heart, thence morphing into its exquisite, creamy and sexy, white musk and vetiver base ...

    Winter: Play Intense by Givenchy - Upon application, one is pleasantly treated to a refreshing duet of nectarous, mandarin tangerine and somewhat tart bergamot. Tumbling to the waiting middle, the citrus mixes with the slightly spicy and fruity pink pepper and coffee tree wood to brew a sweet, cocoa concoction, and flows to the wondrous base. Transitioning, multifaceted labdanum kidnaps the cocoa mixture and morphs the cocoa into a not unpleasant, tar-like, burnt coffee. The syrupy coffee joins with the woody vetiver, the sweet patchouli, the spicy vanilla of the tonka beans, and the soft, balsamic amyris wood to exude an awesome, mocha drydown. A delectable treat, this radiant composition has excellent longevity and very good projection.
