    Seriously though, if you removed the name Gucci and any memory of their actual good fragrances, you would be left with a line of fragrances that are absolutely uninspired, generic, boring, etc. etc.

    It really is sad to see how far Gucci has fallen.
    Summer 2013 Top 10 :

    1. Creed Aventus
    2. Dior Homme Sport (2012)
    3. L'Eau Bleue D'Issey
    4. Bleu de Chanel
    5. Acqua dio Gio Essenza
    6. Strange Invisible Perfumes - Peloponnesian
    7. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    8. Diesel Green Masculine
    9. Terre d'Hermes
    10. Guerlain Homme

    Good God, I just read Frida Giannini's Gucci bio linked above. Even compared to other puff bios that appear on company websites, it's got to be the most self-congratulatory, vapid, offensive piece of masturbatory prose I've read in years. Oh, wait, I misspoke: she's gotten the powerhouse trio of James Franco, Evan Rachel Wood, and Chris Evans to shill for Gucci scents. This is supposed to be an accomplishment?

    Tom Ford's reputation only grows when you compare Gucci's fortunes before, during, and after his tenure there.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    I know, right?

    Tom Ford seems to be more innovative when he's working for established designers than his own brand, for some reason. I think the work he did in fragrance for Gucci and YSL is far more distinctive and better than the fragrances that bear his own name. All the TFs seem simple or derivative compared to Envy for Men, Rive Gauche PH, Rush, and others.

    Lacoste for sure. Have tried most of the line, and found only Elegance to be bottle worthy, possibly Booster too.
    Guess. Everything I have tried has been bad except for Marciano.
    My Ultimate Top 5:

    Fahrenheit (1988)
    Paul Smith Man (2009)
    Burberry London (2006)
    Prada Amber pour Homme (2006)
    Arpege pour Homme (2005)

    Gucci is on the ground, YSL is falling fast because of L'Oréal. There are many others of course but YSL fragrances used to be legendary before the L'Oréal reformulations.

    Voidvader, Karen Low is just one of the trademarks under which a french perfume house, named GEPARLYS, operates http://www.geparlys.com

    Yeah I know how you feel, I have been in same frustration after my acquisition of their Cut Cigar, a nice vanillic/tobacco cheapie: that "woman" was like a ghost or a mystery in the industry!

    I'm with you. CK recently put out a number of dreadful fragrances. I think Encounter is almost offensive.
    And I'm in agreement on Versace: I think they lined up a number of really good fragrances, especially Versace for men, Versense for women and quite a number of others. Yes, Eros is embarassing, but there you go...

    Encounter should have been called Restraining Order... Keep at least 1000 yards away at all times.

    I've got to defend Bulgari here. Black, Aqua, Jasmine Noir, PH, PH Extreme are all very good fragrances, compared to the rubbish that the likes of Calvin Klein, Gucci, Hugo Boss have been producing the last few years.

    Adidas, Lacoste and Puma.
