The frags you mention are vintage and/or have gone through several reformulation, so it's hard to generalize, it may depend on the specific version.
Current Emeraude smells cheap. Vintage Emeraude is a great oriental with a fresh green note, and great for men. Shalimar and vol de nuit are clear relatives, so if you're comfortable with those, you should be comfortable with Emeraude as well.
My Sin: resounding yes. I love the skanky, civety drydown. The top could be a floral aldehydic not miles away from Arpege, but on my skin it goes down to business right away. Regarding Arpege, by the way, the drydown is very masculine, but of course if one doesn't like aldehydic florals, there's quite some time with them. I think the modern Arpege is quite good too, less floral and a touch sweeter and woodier, almost a nod in the direction of modern gourmand masculines, so you should give a try.
I have not smelled the other two.
