    They're all basically in my book hall of famers (except Patou, some might differ), question is what's their home run, base hits, OBP, Hitting Average..etc over all : for those who do not follow baseball then soccer what their Goals tabulation, assist, Golden foot Awards , championship clutch ness ..etc for their lifetime career ...so overall they're all hall of fame veterans or soon to be inductees at different levels and positions !

    If Egoiste and Fahrenheit were discontinued, then their pricee would be as high as Jean Patou pour Homme or much higher than that.

    So many people claim Jean Patou pH is the best male fragrance ever made, but I am sure that many people would say Egoiste or Fahrenheit are the best male fragrances ever made if they were discontinued.

    Our psychology..

    Yeah, that is definitely an overstatement imo. I really don't understand all the hoopla over it.
    Don't get me wrong, it's a complex, unique, high quality scent. But it's not the be all, end all.
    I think Patou PH Prive is so much better.

    Fahrenheit, though I haven't smelled Patou PH. I was afraid to take the blind plunge. I need to seek a sample.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Fahrenheit by a mile just based on the question because of it's exposure, it's uniqueness, and how it single handedly changed the standards of the fragrance industry unlike any other scent in existence (maybe with the exception to Farina 1709-the original eau de cologne). Oh not to mention how it's still relevant and a top seller today. Furthermore, I've never come across a scent that is loved equally as much by the average population and the Basenotes community as Fahrenheit is.

    With that mind, my personal preference would have to be DH as I haven't been privilged enough to smell the vintage Patou PH
    Well enjoying what you're wearing is crucial, it is of the utmost importance to wear something that others like as well.

    Dior Homme is my personal favourite, of those that I'm familiar with, of the choices offered.

    In my case I absolutely do understand the hoopla as PPH is incredible smelling stuff in its vintage form. That said, I fully agree PPH Privé is even better, and it easily is my favorite of the two. It really is too bad Kerleo's über masterpiece is so rare and expensive on the aftermarket that few will ever get a chance to sniff it.
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4)
    Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz) - tie

    Égoïste / L\'Égoïste by Chanel, one of my top picks, I should wear it more.

    For me it would be Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme and YSL M7. Must be the vintage versions of both.

    YSL L'Homme...not on OP's list. Masterpiece which is not complex (ie Fahrenheit, Egoiste). Tastes have evolved, but this keeps it simple in a big way.

    Considering all the OP criteria...it has to be no other than Fahrenheit. Today.

    IMO, it will be joined by Dior Homme, Tomorrow.

    I voted Egoiste, but was on the fence with Fahrenheit.

    I know that it's not as commercially successful as the Dior, but that isn't the most important consideration for me. If it were, Acqua di Gio would be the only correct answer and Justin Beiber would have already been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

    I went with Egoiste because it has retained it's character over time and is still amazing. Fahrenheit has changed into something that may still be good, but not nearly as distinctive and arresting as it was back in the early 90s. Dior has made it safe.

    If it was just based of influence on the perfume industry, you'd have to give this one to Le Male. How many other frags since have tried to be a new spin on Le Male? It, along with Joop Homme were the start of the "new dandyism", unapologeticly sweet mens frags.

    They are both Dior fragrances, so I'm assuming you meant "not as commercially successful as the Dior Homme"...?

    I hate to break this to you, but Fahrenheit outsells DH 1000 to 1 (and historically since its release date has probably outsold DH by far more than that). It's been on the market since 1998 and still sells very well. Outside of BN community, very few people actually know Dior Homme at all, but most people have at least heard of Fahrenheit, or have owned it at some point in their lives. Please take my 1000:1 number with a grain of salt, but I have spoken with couple of my friendly SAs and they both told me Fahrenheit is a no-brainer for most guys who walk into the store to get a cologne, and the only guys who seek out or ask for DH are fragrance junkies. As such, I think Fahrenheit has truly earned its "hall of fame" status as it's completely ubiquitous and has retained its popularity after 26 years on the shelves (despite reformulations) and even the latest version is still head and shoulders above many other mainstream/designer fragrances that are being released today.

    If DH remains to be popular in another 15 years, then perhaps it will earn its keep on this list, but for now, I think Fahrenheit is the king of designer fragrances. My bet is that DH style fragrances will fade out over time as this whole style of fragrances is not getting popular with the non-BN masses - regular civilians prefer much lighter, simpler, quieter, non-offensive fragrances, succumbing to the generic fragrance category.

    I was talking about Egoiste and Fahrenheit. By "the Dior", I meant Fahrenheit.
