    I don't know that I could come up with ten.
    I like Dior Homme but I'll have to look through some release dates to see which scents were released in 21st century, nearly all my favourites are older..

    L'Air du Desert Marocain
    Timbuktu
    Patchouli 24
    31 Rue Cambon
    Invasion Barbare

    I can't think of anything else at the moment (2000 and up, of course--there are many more before). Any one else?

    Defining the year 2000 as some kind of dawn of modernity is ridiculous.

    That's tough if we limit it to post-millenials. There may not be 10 masterpieces that were released in the last 13 years. That won't stop me from making a list though:

    Rive Gauche PH
    M7
    Insolence
    Habit Rouge l'Extrait
    Dior Homme
    Eau Sauvage Parfum
    Chypre Palatin
    Jubilation 25

    Not sure I can name 10, but:

    Invasion Barbare
    - Clean, slightly spicy, and just a great fougre.
    Chypre Palatin- Pure beauty. Slightly feminine, but fully beautiful. Amazing (seriously) drydown.
    Sova- Just a perfect balance of woods, slight sweetness, and super dry tobacco.
    Tobacco Vanille- Lasts pretty much forever, and has an amazing vanilla note with some nice, wet tobacco.
    Aventus- Yeah, yeah, I know. Regardless of hate, it's really an extremely versatile and delightful fragrance.
    Norne- Slumberhouse's take on a pine, woody fragrance. Boy is it in another league. Totally realistic and unbelievable.
    Neroli Portofino- Seriously becoming one of my very favorites. Perfectly balanced with awesome neroli and citrus. Many similar, few as good.
    L'air du Desert Marocain- Scent memory for me, but a seriously good fragrance that uses the incense vibe with some sweetness from amber perfectly.

    I'll see if I can't come up with more later.

    Also, Chypre Palatin should really be on more lists in my opinion. It's a seriously amazing fragrance, like it or not. Sure, it's "just a chypre," but it is one of very few fragrances I deem "beautiful."
