    I'd personally go with Back to Black

    Can't really go wrong with any of them. I would go with Back to Black as it has the best progression in my opinion.
    NDN's opening is excellent (as with with most TF's), it's just the dry down which is wanting and lacking (like most TF's).

    Hmm,

    Straight to Heaven Extreme for me.

    I am going to eventually buy it instead of the standard Straight to Heaven. I got a chance to compare them head-to-head and everything I like about the original is slightly amped up in the Extreme version.

    I just know B2B, the regular StH and Noir de Noir. Out of the three, Back to Black. For a date, StH.

    Heck... for once I see a thread where each choice is an absolute winner.

    I don't know Noir de Noir, though after Von Maur gets the Private Blends locally, it will immediately go on my to-test list.

    I do know the other two, and either one of the Kilians is a smart choice in general. But if it's hot where you live right now, I'd pick Straight to Heaven Extreme because it fits the heat much better than Back to Black. Back to Black is so rich, I can't wear it in anything but cold weather. Both versions of Straight to Heaven are some of the few powerhouse orientals that work in high heat.
    It's really quite pleasant, except for the smell (...)
