    Egoiste wins - no doubts about that. It's in my top 5 for sure, a masterpiece, even though I do find the current version thinner than the old one. But still a great fragrance.
    AHS - I used to own it but that sharp persistent synthetic lemon was too much for me in the end. No compliments but I was told once (and that was the only time) that I wear too much cologne when I sprayed AHS only twice (choked the co-worker in the elevator)

    AHS, with its terrible opening and the boredom that follows, loses again. It really would be better off competing in a lower league with scents like Chrome or Nightflight to stand a chance.

    Actually, it's much closer than I expected. Looks like, everybody who likes AHS voted and Egoiste fans are not so quick to cast their votes:-)

    And this!

    ...but I'm hungry, so I might have to pick the potato even though Godzilla is better. OHS NOES, my vote would skew your poll!

    Personally, I find a bit hard to understand the way Egoiste is so praised, although I respect. So, AHS, a great fragrance, is an easy pick for me.

    Seconded. AHS is easier to wear and pretty good itself, but Egoiste is on a whole other plane.

    I highly doubt that. Egoiste has been around since 1990 so it's pretty damn well liked. The better comparison would have been with Platinum Egoiste, but you seem to just randomly select these fragrances without any consideration as to their strengths and weaknesses.

    Kouros vs Midnight in Paris
    Black Oud vs D&G Pour Homme
    M7 versus Versace eau Fraiche
    AdG vs Bois du Portugal

    I think these are just spam. They serve no purpose. They're just random names posted for the sake of having something to post. It's the equivalent of somebody on an auto forum posting poll after poll after poll with things like "Which is better, an F150 or a Ford Fiesta?" Kouros vs Midnight in Paris?!? That's a joke, right? Black Oud vs D&G Pour Homme. Wow. That's really bad. These worthless polls clog up the search function here with useless results.
