    Default Favourite fragrances from the past decade

    Most of the fragrance discussions here tend to be dominated by the old classics, like GIT, AdG, etc. I thought it would be nice to have a thread focusing only on newer fragrances.

    So, which fragrances released in the past decade (i.e. 2003-2012) do you like?

    Still laughing at GIT & AdG being called "old classics", but I get the idea

    A little accumulated wisdom from some similar Threads.

    I find these 2 have been particularly successful at updating their respective genres while staying true to their house style/traditions.

    My personal list, in no order:

    1) Chanel Sycomore
    2) Lalique Pour Homme Equus
    3) Chanel Coromandel
    4) Encre Noire
    5) Original Vetiver
    6) Rive Gauche Pour Homme
    7) M7 (for its impact alone)
    8) Bulgari Aqua
    9) Dior Homme
    10) Gucci Pour Homme I/II

    Also, Terre d'Herms and Burberry London for Men.

    ....And who could forget Herms re-invention of its classic eau de cologne, Concentr d'Orange Verte?
