    Kilian Apple Brandy is the best.

    Apple brandy is one of the best boozy scents out there, thus gets my vote also!

    Oajan, but have to say all four choices are excellent. Glad myself to have three of them.

    One of these doesn’t make sense to me being aligned with the other 3

    Habdan or Oajan on equal first
    Ambre Narguille in 3rd


    Apple Brandy I wouldnt buy it for $5 (unless I could sell it) list. The notes sounded like it would be a definite buy for me but found it kind of repulsive if I’m being honest. So far I’ve only liked 2 or 3 from Kilian and can’t justify their prices as they’ve been OK but nothing I loved, although someone recently gave me a sample of what I think is black phantom and that could be one I buy
    My top 30

    1. Gucci Envy / D&G By Man
    2. Amber Sky /Cedrat Boise
    3. Costarela / TFK Arab Spring
    4. Dior Homme Intense / Baccarat Rouge 540
    5. Dior Homme Cologne / Chez Bond
    6. Sleek Suede / Aventus
    7. Antidote / By the Fireplace
    8. Gucci Pour Homme / Armani Attitude
    9. Black Phantom / Layton
    10. D&G The One EDP / M7
    11. Santal Majuscule / Reckless
    12. Diadema / Prada L’Homme
    13. Habdan / Tuxedo
    14. Lira / Dior Homme Sport 2012
    15. Citric Santa Eulalia / Clive X

    Oajan. And the performance of the stuff means that the bottle will last you forever!

    I don't have experience with all of them but I can tell you that my wife and I awhile back sat down and smelled every single fragrance in my collection over the course of a week to figure out which ones we really liked and she picked Apple Brady as one of her absolute favorites.

    This might be a case where look for small samples of all 4 and pick which one you like best to buy a full bottle of.

    Hope it was either Ambre Narguile or TT. Found Oajan pretty bad.

    OP's probably made his choice by now, but I'd go with:

    1) Oajan
    2) Apple Brandy
    3) Ambre Narguile
    4) Habdan

    Oajan and Ambre Narguile are virtually identical except for the fact you get twice the performance for about half the price with Oajan. Apple Brandy is really good, but it's very rich so I can't wear it as often as Oajan. It's very good though. I like Habdan too but not as much as the others. To me, Habdan lacks some distinction although it's enjoyable.
