Sycomore by a mile...
Sycomore. I'd probably consider Bois des Iles if I didn't have Egoiste Cologne Concentree, which I personally like much better than BdI.

I've tried about half the Exclusifs line and so far it's No. 18. My only complaint is the poor performance.
Sycomore. I would say Eau de Cologne if it lasted longer. Or if it were above 0 degrees outside right now.
Bois des Iles for me too, both concentrations are a delight to wear. The modest aldelydes in the edt give the sandalwood a lift and spaciousness when playful romance is the intended effect. The lush skin-close beauty and woody balance of the parfum creates a quiet, warm, personal experience that is lovely to share -- but without a need to.

Sycomore, but I've only tried Eau de Cologne and Coromandel in addition to S.

I really am not a fan of the line. If I had to pick something it would be coromandel. It's the most interesting I suppose.
Cuir de Russie, by a mile. I've been quite underwhelmed by some of the others.
For stronger, less floral scents, in no order as my tastes vary from day to day:
Cuir de Russie (both parfum and EDT)
Bois des Iles (both parfum and EDT)
For light florals: Beige

Eau de Cologne, because it's one of the best summer scents around.

Sycomore, and Cuir de Russie extrait. Followed by Coromandel.
Sycomore, followed by Coromandel and Bois des Iles.
I have four of them - Sycomore, Coromandel, Eau de Cologne, and Cuir de Russie - and prefer them more or less in that order. If I were to get a fifth one it would be Bois des Iles or maybe 31 Rue Cambon...
Jersey and then Sycomore
