    Now *this* is more my kind of "battle". Assuming the vintage versions of all of them where they smell their best, Giorgio for Men is the winner but all of them are great.

    Regarding both this "battle" and Giorgio for Men, I agree wholeheartedly!

    I'd go with Givenchy Gentleman, but to be fair, it's been ages since I smelled it. I've seen some compare H.O.T. Always to it, and I don't remember the two smelling similar, but they might. I smelled them a few years apart! I think H.O.T. Always is seriously underrated. Or, maybe "under appreciated" is more appropriate? It's quite compelling.
