Well, it's cheaper than therapy... edit: No it's not...
We're all in the same game; just different levels. Dealing with the same hell; just different devils.
My swap list
3.4 oz V<O< Version Originale -Jean Marc Sinan
John aka Easykiller
Abundant as hell only a few years back, but I've gotta assume that my bottle of 4 Voleurs by L'Occitane is my rarest.
Otherwise I suppose my full bottles of Cumming, Vikt or Ore are also recently-made rarities
Rare as in hard to get but still in production?
then my 18 bell jars of serge luten exclusives and Habit Rouge extrait
or Rare as in term of discontinued or reformulation

"I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical...It is a medicine necessary for the sound health of government." - Thomas Jefferson
Vintage Bel Ami
Vintage Chanel Cuir de Russie
A few Creeds that come to mind:
Scent of Oger
Jean LaPorte Pomme Cannelle, probably, from prior to the "L'Artisan Parfumeur" labelling.
Habit Rouge Habit the Metal, Limited Edition
Habit Rouge Beau Cavalier, Limited Edition
Aramis Bermuda Tonic
YSL Jazz Prestige
Vintage and original bottle of Givenchy Xeryus Rouge
Vintage and original bottle of Tabac Original
Kenzo Once Upon a Time Pour Homme
And I also incidentally bought my wife a full unopened bottle of Eau de Dior Coloressence Energisante EDT 100ml!
My all time favorite:
A 1.5ml vial of Guerlain's 1926 Djedi.
I don't know how rare they are but;
Dolce & Gabbana By Man
Patou Pour Homme
Gucci PH 1
Hard work never killed anyone, but why risk it?
Unsure whether it's rare, but still not of the most common finds:
Horizon by Guy Laroche (early 90s formulation).
A bottle of vintage Mitsouko edc from before I was even born. At the rate my wardrobe rotation is going it will probably outlive me.
Charles Jourdan - Un Homme (100ml)
Lancome - Balafre (mini)
I guess it would be these.
Ferrari 456 GT
Ferrari 512 TR
Aqua Lambara By Diego Palma
Niagara by Courreges
Bel Ami (vintage)
Giorgio VIP (vintage)
Korloff pour homme (vintage)
Arrogance Eau de Parfum splash (vintage)
Captain Molyneux (Vap and splash)
Baryshnikov (vap and Splash)
Signor By Victor (vintage)
Ricci Club Haute Concentration
IL by Lancetti
Tuscany per Uomo Forte,
And so many others...
Perhaps the rariest one is:
Fairbanks By Philippe Vullion
Probably the ones out of production and difficult to find? I also rarely see them on SOTD:
Creed Windsor (30ml decant)
Guerlain Coriolan (bottle)
L'Occitane 4 Voleurs (bottle)
Also a few out-of-production oud samples from Agar Aura
I have some other decants/bottles of out-of-production frags but they aren't too hard to find, no point in listing them...

I think these are pretty rare:
Rochas Man Intense
Kouros - Eau De Sport
Antaeus Sport Cologne
Patou Pour Homme
Or Black vintage
Givenchy Insense vintage
Norma Kamali Incense
Hard to say what constitutes rare, but some that I own are nearly impossible to find anymore,even on ebay. L'Occitane 4 Voleurs, Roger Federer's fragrance, and Ted Baker Endurance are rare gems in my collection that will be gone forever if I ever use them up.
Just want to add:
- M7 by YSL (Vintage) - 1 bottle + 2 backups
- Envy for Men by Gucci - 100 ml and 50 ml vintage (half)
Vintage Jacques Fath Yang
But i'm saving every drop of Japon Noir, Bois Rouge, Cuiron and Yohji Homme as the prices have skycrocketed even though they can still be found on ebay from time to time.
Current top 5:
1. Frederic Malle The Night
2. Roja Dove Sultanate of Oman
3. MFK Baccarat Rouge 540
4. SHL 777 Black Gemstone
5. Rasasi Tobacco Blaze
A bottle of Joop! Homme from 1989
