    I think pure malt is severely over rated.

    Almost tied for #1 for me would be LIDGE. It's a great scent, but not to the extent that some make it out.

    Then again, this is all personal opinion and the way things are perceived. Some probably do absolutely love them.

    Own and like most of these, but Terre d'Hermes is the only one, which I don't really like. I think it is because of Terre's big amount of Iso-E super.

    Terre d'Hermes or Dior Homme Intense.

    I don't think GIT is overrated. I personally don't care for it since it's more conservative than I am, but it truly is excellent.

    A year ago, L'Instant seemed to be all the rage here, but I don't see it mentioned much these days.

    Aventus by a mile. People talk about it here like its the holy grail of fragrances. When I got a sample of it I wasnt blown away. It was just ok IMO. I would never buy a full bottle.

    Aventus. Can't understand why it gets so much love here.

    Even though I own it and enjoy it from time to time I'd pick Terre d'Hermes.

    Aventus, Dior Homme Intense, Pure Malt Fahrenheit and Green Irish Tweed deserve all the praise they get, IMO.

    Chanel Egoiste is very good, but keep in mind that 90% of people on here who hype it are older men who like classic stuff. It's not for people under 25, in most cases.

    So that leaves Terre De Hermes. It's good, but not THAT good.

    I voted for Green Irish Tweed, but I find Terre to be equally bad. Aventus I just see as this sort of barely tolerable mediocrity.
