    Lanvin L'Homme smells close to a (very pleasant) dryer sheet. Very wearable and strangely addictive.

    Project aka invite compliments and everyone seems to like them overall. Aventus, Sauvage and Grand Soir last forever on me.

    Chanel - Bleu De Chanel EDT

    Creed - Aventus, Green Irish Tweed (sub in Cool Water for < $)

    Dior - Sauvage EDT

    MFK - Grand Soir

    I think that Caron's Third Man is a spicy and inoffensive work environment friendly fragrance.

    Designer- most likely the designated, highly popular bestselling choices like the often aforementioned Bleu, ADG, most Boss fragrances&co./etc.

    Niche- again, Aventus, GIT, but most bestselling Creeds in general seem a quite safe bet

    I recently came back to the latest Dior Homme Sport, I actually forgot how nice that one is. Pleasant, fresh and versatile without being generic.

    As you said "best" ...
    Tauer's L'Air
    Comme des Garçons 2Man
    Idôle Lubin
    Timbuktu
    Tom Ford for Men
    Habit Rouge
    I often recommend stuff like these to non-fumehead friends. Problem is: They LIKE and even love those scents, but in they just don't KNOW that such fragrances exist ...

    Masculines from Designer Houses is becoming an oxymoron -- Rive Gauche is the best imo and the old Givenchys (now reissued)

    From Niche -- it has to be Aventus

    I mean, basically everything of modern designers at least, that might pretty much be their main reason for being created.

    So I'll concentrate on niche, excluding Creed & Bond No. 9 as that's too easy, and.. citrusy/freshie options from the likes of Tom Ford and Acqua di Parma - freshies are too easy as well!

    Hmmm..

    Baccarat Rouge 540
    Jubilation XXV
    Elysium Parfum Pour Homme / Parfum Cologne or whatever it's called

    Damn, this is actually kind of hard, haha.

    Oh, the obvious Reflection Man.

    Well that's 4, so eh.
