    Very subjective. For Me: Derby, Gucci Homme, Opium Pour Homme

    Yeah is very subjective the answer but for me...

    Guerlain: Habit Rouge Eau de Cologne
    Gucci: Gucci pour Homme
    YSL: Rive Gauche

    Guerlain: Derby. As classically masculine as it gets: citrus, woods, a touch of leather. (Of course, I find most other vintage Guerlains perfect for men as well, from Chamade to L'Heure Bleue.)

    Gucci: not a huge fan of the house. Perhaps the incensy one (I always forget which number it is, I or II)

    YSL: Kouros. Assertive, musky, dirty, even in the reformulation.

    It depends what you like
    Me personally, I like gourmands so:

    Geurlain: SPIRITUEUSE DOUBLE VANILLE- Best smelling vanilla fragrance besides Tom Ford's Tobacco Vanille

    Gucci: I really like their PH I and PH II

    YSL: La Nuit De l'homme of course. One of the most unique and erotic fragrances out there

    Eau de Guerlain

    Although I suspect the first 2 would be changed for Derby and the original 1970s Gucci Pour Homme if I ever got to smell them.

    Hmm....hard to answer. The ones below are my favorites, although I do not necessarily consider them the "best" of the line...

    Guerlain: L'Instant de Guerlain Extreme (LIDGE)
    Gucci: Gucci Pour Homme II
    YSL: Rive Gauche

    Why? All are great fragrances that are appreciated by most and can be worn to any occasion.

    My favorites from my wardrobe:

    Guerlain: Vetiver; I have the vintage EdC and it's a great earthy, slightly lemon vetiver.

    Gucci: Nobile; One of my all time favorites. Lavender, vetiver, jasmin, rose and more...this one has just about all my favorite notes in its pyramid.

    YSL: Opium pour Home; a great spicy vanilla oriental. I go back and forth between this and Kouros so if you ask me in a couple weeks I could very well give a different answer.
    Current Favorites:
    1. Le 3me Homme - Caron
    2. Yatagan - Caron
    3. Van Cleef & Arples Pour Homme
    4. Dolce & Gabbana pour Homme
    5. Kouros - YSL
    6. L'Anarchiste - Caron
    7. Xeryus - Givenchy
    8. V.I.P. Special Reserve - Giorgio Beverly Hills
    9. The Dreamer - Versace
    10. Nobile - Gucci

    Very much along the lines of what I was thinking, too. I'm waffling between Rive Gauche and Vintage M7 for YSL, though...
