    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)
    Paul Smith Man (2009)
    Burberry London (2006)
    Prada Amber pour Homme (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.

    I agree with D&G The One.

    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?

    TF Tobacco Vanille; although for me I can only wear this at night
    Andy Tauer's LDDM: this may just be the thrill of the new - I have a sample and wore it two days ago. I kept the empty vial just to keep smelling it. Intoxicating.

    There are a fair few I would rate 10 out of 10, but if I were to narrow it down a bit:

    Millesime Imperial (going to see a LOT of play this summer)

    Ambre Precieux (amazing amber with vanilla, not cloying, not overly powdery)

    Chypre Palatin (also going to see play this spring and summer. Just absolutely awesome)

    Sova (woods, maple, super dry tobacco...yes please)

    Memoir Man (best incense based fragrance I've smelled, and I've smelled a decent amount)

    Invasion Barbare (it may take some time to love this one for some, but I sure do. Again, going to be heavy for me in spring)

    As for those I am starting to think qualify: Musc Ravageur comes to mind, same with tobacco vanille.

    This. It was my wedding/honeymoon scent in the Fall of 2006, right after it came out so it is a scent I love and it has great memories associated with it.

    I gotta add Hugo by Hugo Boss, from 1995, this scent is amazing based on smell alone. Very synthetic smelling though. Pineapple, cypress, musky type scent. Nothing smells quite like it, even after all these years. Longevity and projection are a bit weak sometimes though; and the mid notes start to get really synthetic. But the opening notes are awesome.
