    My favourite line. Personal likes include:
    Cuir de Russie
    Bois des Îles
    Sycomore
    31 Rue Cambon
    Bel Respiro.

    Beige and Jersey don't do much for me.

    I love Cuir de Russie, Bois des Iles, Sycomore, Coromandel, and No 22. I also like 28 La Pausa, but it has no staying power on me.

    Don't care for Jersey, Beige, Bel Respiro, or Gardenia.

    Based on you liking only Platimum Egoiste, Allure Homme, and Allure Homme Sport Cologne from the regular line, I'm not sure you'd like any of the Exclusifs. The Exclusifs are more elegant than those, and have different profiles. I would say that Egoiste and Antaeus and No. 5 have more in common with the Exclusifs than do Platinum and the Allures.

    You might try Sycomore and Coromandel first, followed by 31 Rue Cambon, but most of them are very good. I do agree with gandhajala that Jersey and Beige aren't in the same class as the others.

    I was most impressed by No. 22. Nuanced, subtle, and very pleasing.

    I'm not really a fan of Chanel's men's fragrances. If I were to choose I'd pick Rgoiste and even then I'm not the biggest fan.

    Coromandel is one from Chanel from the Exclusifs I absolutely love. It knocks Borneo 1834 and replaced it in my wardrobe.
    Imagine there were no hypothetical situations.

    Hi Senalex - an excellent question.

    I started a thread 'which female scents are deadlier on the male?' and have been getting excellent responses from all over - if you have any thoughts please add - as I'm committed to trying and reporting back on the most popular choices...

    The consensus to date on the Chanel Exclusifs (which are getting a lot of support) are:

    Sycomore
    Coromondel
    Cuir de Russie

    Amongst Chanel's female perfumes the most popular for guys are undoubtedly:

    Cristale
    No 5

    Though a few people recommend No 19 too.

    Hope this helps and do share any thoughts you might have about femme frags a man can sport generally.

    Good luck

    Ditto on everything but I'll add I've also grown fond of No.28

    Sycamore and Coromandel are the two I ended up buying over a few months testing.

    As others have said, easily Sycomore, and right after that, Coromandel. (I need to finally get a bottle of that.) If you have a taste for classic leather accords, Cuir de Russie can't be beat.

    My favorites are 31 Rue Cambon and Eau de Coogne.

    However, based on your preferences, I don't think you'll like any of them.

    Have you tried Bleu?

    Isn't the Chanel "Eau de Cologne" from the exclusive collection? If so, I give that one a big thumbs up. It's my current favorite smell in the world, but alas, as with all citrusy scents, longevity is fleeting.
    Current Top Ten:

    1. Creed Millesime Imperial
    2. Serge Lutens Chergui
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Creed Virgin Island Water
    5. Chanel Eau de Cologne
    6. Thierry Mugler Pure Havane
    7. Van Cleef & Arpels Pour Homme
    8. Bulgari Blu
    9. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    10. YSL Kouros

    My favorites are Sycomore, Coromandel, Cuir de Russie and Eau de Cologne, all of which are extremely beautiful and unquestionably FBW. I'm still somewhat undecided about Bois des Îles (I already have Égoïste, anyway) and have, at best, only lukewarm feelings for 31 Rue Cambon. I do, however, like Jersey a whole lot more than most other people here...

    Yes, I have tried it - it is mix of many Polge scents and it's pity
    I like Blanche, Egoiste Platinum, Anteus some times, Allure home sport cologne(nice but very citrusy) and use 3 years 100 ml bottle of Allure Home Sport.
    I like Polge's creations and want something beautiful, may be not so citrus or straight vetiver or else))

    Coromandel / Sycomore / Bois des Iles / Cuir De Russie / 31 Rue De Cambon are all great unisex frags.
