    Purely subjective. I probably could go with one of my vanilla based scents that would work. I'll just say Guerlain Spiritueuse Double Vanille for now.

    HM by Hanae Mori, off the top of my head. Still love it, though.

    Ultra Male. It's right there in the name! It's only for alpha males.

    In reality: Literally a clone of Aquolina Pink Sugar. JPG duped thousands of men into wearing a sugary 90s women's fragrance.

    Perhaps also, among others, fragrances like the Habit Rouge scent line and Jaipur Homme EDT/EDP- undeniably, distinctively masculine, yet also not in a particularly macho way as much as with enough subtlety and complexity to stand out as rather smooth and as tastefully spicy, savory but also borderline gourmand

    To me Bal d'Afrique and Baccarat Rouge 540 lean more to the feminine side.

    Edit: Just read the "best" in the title - so obviously the both which I mentioned are not for me - but they got quite a bit popularity in the fragcom.

    Perhaps Tubereuse Imperial although not specifically classified as a men's scent by the house. Definitely not the best, but one that would fit.

    Can't make it smell any more feminine than it already does. The only thing about it that suggests anything masculine is the name. But it's a good one.

    Have you already tried the current new formulation 12244/A?
    It isn't as powdery anymore and less "dated" smelling - I like it a lot and better than the previous ones.

    Dior Homme is an easy winner here for me personally and for the forum as a whole if numbers are anything to go by. If you add all the wears in the SOTD feature of itself and its flankers, it is by far the most worn fragrance of all time on the forum. And with good reason. But before we begin to castrate it, let’s not forget that it actually doesn’t smell much like any fem fragrance in particular.

    Parfums De Marly’s Herod is a good runner up - Smell’s like YSL’s Black Opium to me, but without the pear note. Thankfully I like Black Opium and feel fine wearing Herod occasionally for casual wear on weekends.

    This. Dior Homme and DHI. I’m ruling out any fragrances listed that are marketed as unisex or not marketed to any particular sex or gender, so the Dior Homme line is definitely a front runner here.
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    Somehow they took the smell of women's lipstick and turned it into one of the best masculine scents ever.

    +1, no doubt.

    Annuci for Men is nipping at its heels though...

    No, I haven't tried any of the newer ones - My bottle is probably 4-5 years old, so I am not surprised to hear that it has been reformulated. I may have to give the new one a try sometime to compare.

    One day, after I shower I decided to wear Ultra Male just around the house because I hadnt really given it an honest wearing. Unfortunately, I’m not part of the mass that digs this juice. I was literally in my own home, by myself, and was overwhelmingly uncomfortable with how feminine I smelled. So, if you haven’t tried it, +1 for JPG Ultra Male.

    I love Dior Homme but somehow I never got a feminine vibe from it.

    I agree with Ultra Male, although it does get a little bit less feminine in the drydown. Also, I'm surprised no one mentioned Tom Ford's Black Orchid. Perhaps because it's not marketed towards men but still many men wear it.

    Just as a personal opinion/thought: all ambivalence aside, happening to also enjoy both aspects of this fragrance, both the more powdery opening and much less sweet base-trying to always grasp how these two can fit so good in a fragrance that might not succeed in combining these, but ultimately does so.
