    Default Best in class perfumes for Woody, Green, Floral, Citrus, and Gourmand?

    I'm curious what men's perfumes are best in class in your opinion, for Woody, Green, Floral, Citrus, and Gourmand?
    I can vouch for GIT in the Green category and can't do much about the rest since I don't feel good about labelling anything else as "best" in class.

    P/s: Question edited.

    Most of the Xerjoff masculines- especially but not exclusively regarding high quality citrus,

    the houses of Guerlain and of Memo Paris- same principle but even more gender-independently, because even their more unisex offerings are simply among the best of their kind, particularly in the gourmand category

    The Xerjoff line sure has some reputation, hope I can come across them soon to see if they live up to their hypes. Not much experience with Memo Paris, but definitely has Guerlain SDV on my radar.

    Woody: Chene or Enchanted Forest. If I have to choose one Enchanted forest.
    Green: GIT or Ichnusa. The 1 could be GIT.
    Floral: Reflection Man, Battito d'Ali, Neroli Boheme. I choose battito d'ali because of compliments although I love so much Reflection Man.NEVER BUY XERJOFF 1888. people hates the smell of that.
    Citrus: Nio, Citric by Santa Eulalia or L'Humaniste. The king of CITRUS is Citric.
    Gourmand: Black Phantom, Sorriso and I include here baccarat rouge 540 eau de parfum or extrait, although people compliments much more with the extrait, because is not a gourmand, but it smells like that.. smells like cotton candy and is the most complimented fragrance with aventus in my collection of more than 300 fragrances.

    In fact, of all of my 307 fragrances, the most complimented are Aventus, baccarat rouge 540 and battito d'ali, and the most HATED ever, tuscan leather, dior homme parfum and versace oud noir xD
