    Eau Sauvage, Eau Sauvage Parfum, Eau Sauvage Fraicheur Cuir, all very good and they highlight different aspects of the fragrance.

    I like 6 Chanels....

    Homme Sport (light gray bottle)
    Cologne Sport (5 oz clear bottle)
    Platinum Egoiste
    Homme Edition Blanche
    Eau de Cologne (my favorite EdC)
    Sycomore (Respect it, but too smoky for me)

    The last two are from their Exclusifs line.

    I personally prefer Dior for men but from chanel, my picks would be Sycomore, Allure Homme and Chanel Blue de Chanel

    Sycomore is #1

    My favorite is Pour Monsieur Concentree. It is very classic, very formal.

    Male line? Antaeus, hands down. Far second, Pour Monsieur for its perfect opening. Wish it lasted more. Never felt such a magnificent opening. Then Bleu EDT.
    Whole line? No22, Cuir de Russie, Misia, Sycomore, No5 EDT, Chance Fraiche... I think almost everything

    Bleu de Chanel Parfum.

    Coromandel is from the Exclusifs line and for women but it works for men and would be my number one choice.

    From the more modern line, I agree with this too. Very good fresh-woody scent, even if it's completely synthetic.

    This is a good answer. I would add Pour Monsieur edt, although it's almost impossible to find. I tested it recently at JFK Airport, and I like the current version. Current Antaeus and Pour Monsieur edp just don't quite click with me.

    I'm not too against the Bleu de Chanel stuff - maybe the edp, a little, and the opening of the parfum.

    I've also had good luck with Platinum Egoiste and Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme.

    Vintage Antaeus and vintage pour Monsieur. The modern Antaeus is a nice one but not nice enough for me to buy a bottle. The modern pour Monsieur is a good one too, i find it better than the Antaeus. Sycomore would be my third option.

    On the US version of Chanel.com, Pour Monsieur edt is pictured - that same picture as the sites in Europe - a vintage bottle, even! - but the edt is not available to buy - just the edp and the aftershave.

    I see the edt is available from Chanel.com in France, Germany, and the UK.
