    Default top 5 or 10 men's favorite fragerances

    Hi,
    I'm new here and I've got the sample collecting bug.

    I only have about 25 samples so far.

    I'm asking about favorite men's fragrances to help by giving me a good starting point to expand my collection with some suggestions.

    thanks

    I have no idea if you're happy to look at niche as well as designer, so will include a mixture of both to hopefully bridge any pricing points:

    Creed Green Irish Tweed
    Creed Aventus
    Serge Lutens Chergui
    YSL M7
    Tom Ford Black Orchid
    Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille
    Thierry Mugler A Men Pure Havane
    Tauer L'air du Desert Marocain
    Dior Fahrenheit
    Dior Homme Intense

    There are literally so many to choose from (both designer and niche), but these range from £50 - £180 with quite a few in the middle of that price range.

    Thanks for all the replies. Keep your favorite fragrance's lists coming. I'm going to try to pick up as many of these as I can.

    Vortex, can you provide any more information about the type of fragrances you enjoy, or particular notes perhaps.

    Otheriwse, you'll probably end up with a lot of scattered replies, leaving you with hundreds to sample.

    If you could let us know what your preferences are so far, you may end up with more considered replies.

    I'm actually not sure what my preferences are. I enjoy a bit of everything but I haven't had enough experience to be able to say that I prefer one type over the other.

    Le Male
