    I'm gonna say the designer brand with the worst overall collection of fragrances, especially for the price, is Kenzo.
    I've not found ONE decent one in the lot, and although I'm yet to try the praised Jungle, I don't hold out much hope for it.

    Gucci sucks for discontinuing a bunch of amazing unique frags just to replace them with a bunch of boring generic stuff.

    Agreed!
    Who was the rocket scientist at Gucci who made the decision to discontinue the original (and best) Gucci Pour Homme, Gucci Noble and Gucci No.3?

    Lacoste and Boss are my picks. Now a sleeper pick for a good designer scent maker is Ferragamo.

    Lacoste is disgusting. So is Jean Paul Gaultier.

    Gucci for me :

    Gucci by Gucci
    Gucci by Gucci Sport
    Gucci Guilty

    ( I am almost tempted to say Gucci pour Homme II, but I think I have to try it again to be sure)

    What makes me upset the most with Gucci is that they once produced great fragrances : Gucci pour Homme ( 2003), Envy, Rush.....now, they just get lost in a sea of poorly made sport fragrances. I don't have an issue with sport fragrances ( or aquatics as they are sometimes lumped together), but they don't make them well.

    Thumbs down for Gucci. It looks like YSL is following in the same footsteps. Dunhill and Canali are close as well ( but they still produce Dunhill for Men and Black Diamond respectively, so they are not totaly terrible I suppose
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Aramis New West, Alain Delon Iquitos, Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Oxford & Cambridge, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage),...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of PdE Ambre Russe, Jil Sander Feeling Man, Comme des Garcons 2 Man, Giorgio VIP, ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    +1 to Gucci. Their last good one was GpH II. Now it's just slick packaging, celebrity-fronted ad campaigns, but still $1 juice.

    Hugo Boss is a main-stayer on this list too. Their retail prices keep inching up but not the quality.

    I'm afraid I have to disagree with the Bulgari pick. They may not have many male-marketed fragrances but generally their line has been consistent with their aesthetics. And the good ones are modern classics: Bulgari Black, pour Homme, au de Vert, etc.

    I too think that Bulgari comes up with quality stuff once in a while. I also like Bulgari Jasmine Noir.

    The modern Guccis are so bland compared to their past scents.

    'Sucks'...such a ridiculous word...

    The Gucci discontinuations might be credited to Tom Ford being the creative director at the time of Gucci PH, Rush, etc etc. It's painful to see the horrific Guilty/whatever stuff in comparison to what once was.

    I'll say Gucci and Versace. I so hope Oud Noir is decent.
