    Default Based on smell alone… what would be your 10/10 fragrance?

    Based on smell alone - forget the price/longevity/projection/silage, what fragrances have you owned and or tried that would get a 10/10 from you just based on smell alone?

    For me I would say –
    D&G The One – I love the smell so much that I spray it on my pillow just so I can smell it as I am going to sleep.

    Baldessarini Ambre – such a yummy fruity vanilla amber scent. I tend to spry this on my shirt while I am messing around on the computer… keeps me in a good mood

    Versace Pour Homme – Such a beautiful clean crisp lite citrus scent. This is the one I spray on myself when I am down in the dumps and need a little pick me up

    I have too many 10s in my collection.

    My rotation varies by what I want to smell: citruses, floral, chypres, leathers, etc.

    I find many of my scents also give me a pick-me-up.

    Based on just smell. I think Burberry London. And it is unmatched and untouchable. Nothing like it.
    My Ultimate Top 5:

    Fahrenheit (1988)
    Le Vetiver Itasca (2010)
    Burberry London (2006)
    Eau des Baux (2006)
    Arpege pour Homme (2005)

    Miller Harris Vetiver Bourbon. Every time I smell it I'm amazed at how good it is.

    By Kilian Pure Oud. Very close to perfect.

    Chanel Sycomore. Another one that smells close to perfect, even though it's something I never wear.

    Puredistance M! Perfect scent, perfectly balanced perfect notes with perfect longevity, sillage and projection!

    Oh yeah - perfect smell

    It would be a very undecided combat between Armani Eau pour Homme, Blenheim Bouquet, Knize Ten, Mouchoir de Monseiur and quite a few other scents I cannot immediately think of.

    I agree with D&G The One.

    My other one would be Virgin Island Water. I love the lime + coconut combo, puts me in paradise.

    Such a difficult question, it's like having to give your favourite fragrance. I can't narrow it down to one but if pushed a 10/10 would have to be Patou Pour Homme.
    Hard work never killed anyone, but why risk it?
