    Default Top 40 Designers

    Marc, Robes08, on Youtube made a video of his top 100 designer fragrances, and I like that a lot. I'm now going to make my list of top 40 Designers.

    The numbers on this list aren't of utmost importance. For example if fragrance Y is at 23 and fragrance Z is at 18, it doesn't mean fragrance Z is automatically much better, but overall, the higher the number, the more I like it.

    My list is probably missing a few. Some out of forgetfulness and others because I haven't sampled a few things.

    40. Kouros
    39. Terre D. Hermes
    38. Bulgari Blv
    37. Bulgari Aqua
    36. Givenchy Pi
    35. Givenchy Play Intense
    34. Bulgari Black
    33. Polo Green
    32. Polo Blue
    31. Armani Code
    32. Live Jazz
    31. Mont Blanc Legend

    30. Dior Homme Sport
    29. Chanel Allure
    28. Hanae Mori
    27. L'Instant de Guerlain
    26. Body Kouros
    25. The Dreamer
    24. Midnight In Paris
    23. Issey Miyake Sport
    22. Rive Gauche
    21. Versace Eau Fraiche

    20. Encre Noire
    19. Allure Homme Sport
    18. Burberry London
    17. Bleu de Chanel
    16. Spice Bomb
    15. Acqua Di Gio
    14. La Nuit de L'Homme
    13. Platinum Egoiste
    12. Cool Water
    11. Pure Malt

    10. Angel Men
    9. 1 Million
    8. Le Male
    7. Gucci Pour Homme II
    6. L'homme

    It's all very subjective and impossible for me to enumerate.

    It's not all subjective. Saying 1 Million is a better scent than all the great Hermes, Caron and Guerlain classics is - atleast almost - objectively wrong.

    While I don't agree with quite a few of your choices, I find myself saying "I guess I can see where he might be coming from" to a lot of your suggestions, so in that regards it's a good list. A few issues, however, really have me perplexed:

    - M7 @ number 1? Are you using the mythical vintage juice and it's that much better? I blind bought the current formulation (one-amber-sided bottle) and it's bloody ordinary.

    - Where's Eau Sauvage? Any of the other Hermes (Voyage Parfum is exceptional)? Mugler Cologne would definitely be in my top 10 also.

    - I'm most surprised, I think, that no CK frags made the list. Granted most of their offerings are utter tosh, but Obsession and Obsession Night are really quite good.

    Maybe we could all use the frags in noir's list to make our own pseudo top ten - the 'top ten of noir drakkar's top 40 designer frags'.

    Mine would be:

    1) Egoiste
    2) TdH
    3) Encre Noire
    4) Rive Gauche
    5) L'Instant
    6) Body Kouros
    7) Kouros
    8) Live Jazz
    9) Acqua di Gio
    10) AHS
