    +1. I love KC Black, it was one of my first purchases, a blind buy. I have no regrets (Other than the fact I didn't do much research online and way over paid ). And I have not found anything close to it. I heard Vintage Black is very similar to Black, but I do want to get my hands on Reaction soon (I'm considering a blind buy!)

    I'm not sure how some of these are underrated. At least not by my definition of underrated. But, I will throw in Chrome Legend, wonderful fragrance, I have tried Chrome once, but thought it was forgetful and not good compared to this. Also a blind buy before I knew anything about fragrances.

    24 Gold is Vanilla Heavy and Sweet.

    Halston man Amber is Amber Heavy and not sweet. Halston is more versatile and interesting but both are very good.

    Thanks for the update. I've heard the longevity and projection of Halston leaves something to be desired?

    Not true. Longevity is decent on me (10-12 hours) and it has acceptable projection. 24 gold on the other hand is a nuclear bomb, this can be off putting to the people around you

    In a word, no I can't. Most of those people are listing are highly regarded for a reason. Under rated ones are under rated for a reason. One never mentioned anymore and discontinued (but can be found very cheaply) is Carlos Santana. Just blind buy it for less than $20. You won't be sorry.
    Most worn scents according to my haphazard use of the SOTD...so perhaps my favorites.
    1. Epic Man by Amouage (24 wears)
    2. Leather Oud by Christian Dior (22 wears)
    3. M7 by Yves Saint Laurent (18 wears)
    4. Oud Imperial (black) by Perris Monte Carlo (15 wears)
    5. Russian Tea Ritual by Masque (14 wears)
    6. Fate Man by Amouage (13 wears)
    7. Interlude Man by Amouage (12 wears plus)
    8. Journey Man by Amouage (12 wears)
    9. Terré d'Hermés by Hermés (12 wears)
    10. Sycomore by Channel (11 wears)

    Here some really good designers, although most of them are not underrated:

    Mugler A*Men
    Mugler Pure Havane
    Mugler Pure Malt
    Mugler Pure Coffee (too bad this one is discontinued and hard to find)
    Terre d'Hermes (I prefer the Parfum version)
    L'Instant de Guerlain Extreme
    Givenchy Insense (this too is discontinued)
    Bvlgari Pour Homme Soir

    Alfred Sung Homme can be found really cheap and is always a compliment getter.

    2- Body Kouros
    3- Santos
    4- Troisieme man
    5- Lalique equus

    Hmmmm - under-rated and not already mentioned - no I can't.

    I would add though Cartier Declaration Essence and Givenchy Vetyver - both awesome

    Diesel Zero Plus
    Paul Smith London
    Samba Kiss Me
    Phat Farm Atman
    Jacques Fath pour l'Homme
    Tommy Hilfiger True Star
    Zirh Corduroy
    Daddy Yankee
    Salvador Dali Agua Verde
    Dunhill Pure

    I think i can name a lot more. Not only are all of these scents underrated, they're all pretty unique too. Daddy Yankee smells like a stronger version of Euphoria with an added vanilla note. Kiss Me is similar to Mandarina Duck Black. PS London has been compared to Obsession Night, but I don't really get it.
    My Ultimate Top 5:

    Fahrenheit (1988)
    A*Men Ultra Zest (2015)
    Burberry London (2006)
    Eau des Baux (2006)
    Arpege pour Homme (2005)
