    With all due respect DHI came out in 2007. Yes it was reformulated (2011?) so technically could say last 5 years. Just being nit-picky here.

    Thumbs up Re: What is the best Designer fragrance in the last 5 years?

    yup...you're right...
    I was looking at my wishlist on Fragrantica and they have 2 DHI on data base: one in 2007 and one in 2011.
    Mine was the 2011 - hence the confusion.

    DHI is so far ahead that even if it didn't have the 2011 reformulation it would still be the best in the last five years because it's awesomeness would stretch the space time continuum enough to still qualify.

    Hahah this guy! Good one.

    As for me, even though I am somewhat new to the fragrance game, I very much enjoy Bleu and Pure Havane

    Out of my collection:

    Costume National 21 (2008)
    Euphoria Men Intense (2008)
    L'Essence de Cerutti (2009)
    Lanvin - Avant Garde (2011)
    Prada Amber pour Homme Intense (2011)

    Fleur Du Male just missed the five year criteria since it came out in 2007, Gucci Pour Homme II (2007), Narciso Rodriguez for Him Musk and Narciso Rodriguez for Him. Looks like 2007 was one heck of a year for some of my favorite fragrances.

    Fractionally outside the timescale, but I'd say Polo Modern Reserve is worth a mention.

    The One and 1 Million were the 1st that spring to mind...since I think there were both released in 2008 and therefore just outside the 5 year window.:/

    So I will go with La Nuit and TOF as my 1-2 in the top designer releases in the last 5 years.

    Agree re Pure Malt, but both the Chanel and YSL you reference were released more than 5 years ago...

    I love all 3 and put Havane over Pure Malt slightly. Still witing on a cool, dark, gloomy day to wear NR
