    New grouping, excluding the winner of first poll. After this is complete, I will present my hypothesis for discussion.
    Vote now, and thanks for looking.

    From the list, I went with Tom Ford. Mostly because of NdN and TV. I hear AA is great as well, and TL was a little too much for me.

    It was close with Amouage though, as I love Memoir and Jubilation XXV.

    oops - I voted for Tom Ford. I guess I should have picked "other", since I think Creed is #1.
    Seasonal favorites:

    1. Creed - Spice & Wood
    2. Creed - Aventus
    3. Ormonde Jayne - Black Gold
    4. by Kilian - Incense Oud
    5. Puredistance - Black
    6. House of Matriarch - Blackbird
    7. Armani Privé - Oud Royal
    8. by Kilian - Cruel Intentions
    9. Creed - Royal English Leather
    10. Brückner - Aoud 1

    I love Tom Ford fragrances. Tobacco Vanille is my all time favorite.

    Jacques Bogart, in my limited experience. And I say that having tested some Creeds, but none of the others.
    But I have reason to believe I would like some of the Fords or Montales if I can ever try them.

    From this list, it would be, at least to me, a close competition between Givenchy, Hermes and YSL.

    Do you have a Neiman Marcus nearby? They carry the Tom Ford private brand. My top 2 are Tobacco Vanille and Tuscan Leather.

    Aren't NdN and TV unisex? If they count as male then Guerlain should have easily earned more votes in the previous poll by the means of Bois d'Armenie, Spiritueuse Double Vanille, Cuir Beluga, Tonka Imperiale, pretty much every female big hitter also. Speaking strictly of male marketed fragrances I think Amouage has it covered here.

    YSL first with Givenchy a close second.
    My current top 10 (subject to change) in no particular order:

    Rive Gauche Pour Homme, Serge Lutens Cuir Mauresque, Armani Prive' Nuances,
    Armani Prive' Bois d'Encens, Ermenegildo Zegna Indonesian Oud, Essenza de Zegna, Amouage Beloved Man, Fahrenheit Le Parfum, Dior La Collection Couturier Vetiver, and Rasikh Syed Junaid Alam.

    Most Tom Ford's are unisex, so how come it gets mentioned in this thread?
    I guess people don't bother to read the title of the thread!!!!!
    This is for best MALE perfumes CAPICHE????

    J. Bogart on the other hand makes perfumes that are the epitome of masculinity like One Man Show, Witness, Bogart pour Homme, Furyo, Bogart Silver, etc...

    Well, since three of my top six come from Caron, I had to vote for "other".
    I don't have a signature fragrance. My signature changes every day, why shouldn't my fragrance?

    I concur -

    Vintage formulations of these three houses' male fragrances are simply, timeless.

    I would also like to add Guerlain to the list of my personal favorites from over the decades.

    Cheers,

    “Some perfumes are as fragrant as an infant’s flesh, sweet as an oboe’s cry, and greener than the spring; While others are triumphant, decadent or rich; Having the expansion of infinite things, like ambergris and musk, benzoin and frankincense, which sing the transports of the mind and every sense.”

    In case you are serious, I excluded Creed from this poll, but they handily took top spot in the first poll. In this poll if you wish to vote for Creed again, you need to check off "other".

    Thanks for looking.
