    I'd say Vintage M7 and Amouage Opus VI. Both evocative, uplifting and soothing scents that make me feel better about life, and ultimately, about myself.

    Some fragrances are works of art but not necessarily wearable on anything more than special occasions.

    I don't give 10/10 to any fragrance or anything else (Fortunately i'm not a teacher) because there's no perfection.
    From my collection i give 9,5 to Eau de Rochas pour Homme and Macassar.

    D&G The One is actually the first fragrance I thought of when I read the thread title too - in fact, I'll bet it was that very fragrance that caused you to create a "on smell alone" thread, as wee all know how poorly it performs in the projection stakes.

    Other tens from my list include Guerlain Heritage and Lutens Santal Majuscule.

    Lolita Lempicka au Masculin eau de Minuit
    Oranges and Lemons Say the Bells of St Clements

    Ordering 2MAN soon. Quite enjoy that one, I think it could be a near 10/10 for me.

    I've recently accepted that this title may belong to Secret Garden by Aftelier - just becuase nothing makes me feel as good when I'm wearing it as this - and that's all that matters I still have many other loves and 10/10's in my collection.

    Boucheron Jaipür Homme reminds me of a cheap mans Federic malle MR. I love it.

    Very good, doesn't last as long as i would like. Does the EDP last longer?

    For me, it's:
    - Versace The Dreamer
    - Ted Lapidus Black Soul

    These two have kinda become my default signature scents, as I always seem to enjoy them and never tire of them. Some scents I have to be in a certain mood for, and some scents I'll regret wearing sometimes, but these two always make me smile and just feel like me. Viktor & Rolf's Spicebomb would be my next choice after these two.

    D and G the one. I actually have a travel size version of it that can last 24 hours. Go figure that one out. Other than that I really like the dry down of pure havane and pure malt as well. I wish there was a fragrance that was just that.

    That's odd. The EDT lasts forever on me. I remember the first time I sampled it on a warm night and accidentally sprayed thrice. It was overpowering, and I could smell it the next morning. I had a far better experience the second time around, going with lesser sprays.

    I should get myself a bottle. I absolutely love the smell, but it just feels out of place almost everywhere I go. I live in an extremely hot country, but I have no qualms about wearing other Orientals or Gourmands. This one is difficult for me to pull off. Perhaps I'll get a smaller size and wear it at home.

    It's such a bittersweet balsamy smell. Kind of addictive. It has a very rich, thick smell about it.
