    Here is my list In alphabetical order. I think it is pretty versatile and encompasses a variety of situations and seasons.

    - Acqua di Gio (either EDT or Essenza)
    - Bleu de Chanel
    - Burberry London
    - Bvlgari Aqva Marine
    - Dior Homme (or DHI)

    If we could include vintage, I would swap vintage Dolce and Gabbana PH for something else.

    My 5:
    Chanel - Bleu de Chanel
    Dior - Fahrenheit
    Dior - Homme
    Hermes - Bel Ami
    YSL - La Nuit de L'homme

    Also, L'Occitane - Eau des Baux just barely missed the cut, but I had to really scrutinize this list hard before deciding this was the one that would get bumped.

    Hermes Jardin Sur Le Nil (Fresh)
    Lalique Encre Noire (Dark)
    La Nuit De L'Homme (Sexy)
    Gucci Pour Homme II (Relaxing)
    YSL Rive Gauche Pour Homme (Professional)

    I tried to make a list that incorporated some of my favorite scents while also choosing ones that would make a well-rounded wardrobe. I'm happy with this list.

    I had a hard time deciding between La Nuit and Dior Homme, but if I had to choose one to keep in a small collection, I would choose La Nuit because Dior is a little less versatile with that feminine vibe. However, overall, I enjoy Dior Homme more.

    If Candie's for Men wasn't discontinued, I'd replaced Be Delicious with Candie's.

    I'm very much into the bold, loud, in-your-face, sweet fragrances.

    For sure, no doubts:

    - DHI
    - Pure Havane
    - Pure Malt

    Probably:
    - Midnight in Paris

    In the fight for the podium, with it's pros and cons:
    - Platinum Egoiste (like it and really nice performance... but some days feels boring on me, irregular love)
    - DG The One (If had a good perfomance would be one of the bests and on top 4 for sure... but so weak on me, it's like a false dream)
    - CH 212 Men (something special)
    - L'Eau par Kenzo (love it, but bad performance too)
    - LIDGE (Some days enjoy it and some others saturates me, like Platinum Egoiste)
    - One Million Intense (I've been like 4 months without using a single day, yesterday I sprayed for a date and mmmm....)

    - Some that I like but don't own, have to test more (Versace Pour Homme, Allure Homme Sport, Bleu de Chanel)


    This afternoon I'll try to test that famous Gucci PH II

    Yohji Homme - 2013 re-release suits me just fine, been wearing it a lot the last few months.
    Tiffany for Men - still glorious, just walk into any Tiffany store and ask nicely.
    Bulgari Black - Mernado is cool.
    Dior Hypnotic Poison - Mernado is cool.
    Comme de Garcons Black

    The first Margiela is also pretty nice.

    Does Dries van Noten count as 'designer' . . . that one is a modern masterpiece, Shalimar for Men with a nod and a wink

    FWIW, I don't consider Guerlain 'designer'.

    Definitely. All three are excellent.

    I consider Guerlain designer simply because for the most part it has never been niche, and those are the two ridiculous categorical constructs that most people here need. :-)
