    Haven't tried as many Guerlain frags as I would like. That said, Vetiver Eau Glacee/Frozen takes the cake for me in terms of smell alone. Excellent vetiver/mint fragrance, I have smelled it once, and have not seen it since. But since this one is limited edition and so hard to find. I'll have to go with Shalimar.
    My Ultimate Top 5:

    Fahrenheit (1988)
    Paul Smith Man (2009)
    Burberry London (2006)
    Prada Amber pour Homme (2006)
    Arpege pour Homme (2005)

    Count me in the Derby camp (as evidenced by my wish list!). Personally it's not even close among Guerlain
    WANTED (full or partial bottles)
    Divine eau Divine (refillable)

    Vetiver Eau Glacee/Vetiver Frozen by Guerlain

    Eau de Guerlain is certainly not a bad place to start.

    There is no best for me, I wear several and a couple of my 'best' during summer are marketed as women's - Sous le Vent & Vetiver Pour Elle.

    Derby is great, I would recommend it to any guy who wants to experience a restrained, versatile, classically styled masculine. In a similar vein, although 'warmer', I think Heritage is good stuff, and relatively easy to get hold of, as is L'Instant - both are far more interesting than a lot of mens releases in the same price range.

    L'Ame d'un Heros is one that has grabbed me over the last couple of years - muted, almost melancholic.

    Jicky & Mouchoir de Monsieur are great but would have most youngsters running for the hills, and Mitsouko & Vol de Nuit both have a gravitas that a lot of 'noir' stuff for guys currently being pumped out can only dream about it. Habit Rouge is another classic that comes in different iterations . . . that one's a whole other story (search out Scentemental's detailed overview if you can be bothered).

    And it doesn't stop, either - Arsene Lupin is a very sophisticated take on leather from just a couple of years ago and this year's Songe d'un Bois d'Ete is very cool, it uses the same accord as Leather Oud in the base enhanced with a decent cedar all offset by a spiced opening that flies in the face of all the wannabe 'western' shots at oud that have become such a cliche. It actually smells masculine, exotic, modern, original and eminently wearable.

    I would recommend any of the above (and others) as 'best' based on who was asking. I wear them all and I don't play favourites with the kids, kinda thing

    great commentary mr. reasonable! jicky, mouchoir de monsieur, habit rouge, mitsouko, all of the aforementioned for one reason or another do not agree with my nose or skin (personal preference) but nevertheless one has to admire them for their structure, versatility, elegance, etc, classic fragrances that have endured the test of time and have been way ahead of their era (and i love shalimar on my wife, but i guess that's another story/thread). have never had the pleasure of smelling derby and vetiver pour elle but an ex-basenoter had generously sent me a couple of samples of both which i am waiting for with bated breath.

    Habit Rouge. Maybe LIDGE will surpass it once I get to know it better, I have only worn it twice. Almost wore it this morning and I wish I had.

    Habit Rouge (EDC and EDT pre-2007)
    Derby (the current version is great, but the one in the Habit Rouge-bottle - see above - is pure heaven)
    Heritage EDP (vintage)
    Vetiver (vintage, but the newest version is great, too)
    Eau de Guerlain
    Arsène Lupin (Dandy)

    Tough! So I'll pick three: Mitsouko [EdP] / L'Instant Extreme [EdP] / L'Homme Extreme [EdP]

    To me, the close combat is being so far between: Mouchoir de Monsieur, Vetiver and Habit Rouge, all being quite likely to qualify for the number one spot.

    L'Instan, L'Homme, Heritage being honorable mentions.

    After my hasty response about Derby, I want to add others (including unisex):

    Derby
    Habit Rouge (EDP and parfum)
    Vetiver
    Jicky
    Mouchoir de Monsieur

    Shalimar
    L'Heure Bleue
    Apres L'Ondee

    With the disclaimer that I haven't tried Derby, all Guerlain's fragrances that are marketed as masculines strike me as very feminine. Is it possible that Guerlain doesn't know how to make a masculine, at least not a modern masculine?

    Haven't smelled Derby in a long time but I do love the vintage Vetiver.
    I don't have a signature fragrance. My signature changes a little bit every day, why shouldn't my fragrance?

    I avail myself of Guerlain for eaux and civet. Eaux aren't really fragrances, and you specified 'men's' - so, Mouchoir de Monsieur.

    Good call - stretches the citrus and verbena of Eau de Guerlain with some civet into something special. It's unfortunate they had to discontinue it, we can thank the IFRA for another death in the family.

    Interesting. What's a good example, or a couple of examples, of a modern masculine to you? Genuinely interested.

    Two examples most people on this site would know are Creed's Bois du Portugal and Chanel's Platinum Egoiste.
