    You would have been better off by choosing 10 of your own and asking for a vote IMHO...

    My 2 choices (actually 6):
    Spec occasion - French Lover by Frederic Malle or Amouage Jubilation XXV or Montale Lime Aoud (wear it at least 2 hrs b4 ur spec occasion)
    versatile all yr - NY EDT by Parfum De Nicolai or Knize 10 or Guerlain Vetiver...
