    This is the best.
    Alain Delon has some good ones too but Pavarotti is the best in celebrity fragrance

    It's discontinued, but I think the Catherine Deneuve is very well made.

    For me:

    Olivier De Kersauson (ODK for Men)
    Alain Delon
    Omar Sharif

    I'm intrigued and blind-bought a (very small) bottle of this off of eBay.

    I'm a huge opera buff so I felt I needed to give Pavarotti's scent a shot (the Teatro Alla Scala fragrance is also on my wishlist).

    Most celebrity fragrances have some appeal to me, or at least don't offend me, and some are quite good. I've yet to try one that I would consider bad refuse to wear other than Kiss Him (Gene Simmons).

    Strictly speaking, I wouldn't refuse to wear it. The bottle I have I keep in reserve for dousing myself on the last day before a workplace "no fragrance" rule went into effect if that ever came to pass. It's the nuclear option.

    Among others, happening to like Cascaya by Gabriela Sabatini, Indian Summer by Priscilla Presley (these two quite unisex, especially the first one), Julio Iglesias Only for Men Iquitos and Samourai by Alain Delon both for their naming, but also for their actual notes, being uncommon favorites unexpectedly good for celebrity scents.

    Other notable mentions among the aforementioned ones can easily be worth especially regarding the Pavarotti and the Deneuve scent. While also not forgetting Instinct by David Beckham as one of the more crafty both Beckham and celebrity scents in general.

    Thanks!
    I guess that "Samourai" is named after Melville´s film with Delon himself in it. I´d like to try it.

    Quite likely indeed, having liked both the film and the fragrance possibly named after this, regretting to not having purchased this one even earlier and therefore having passed up, at least temporarily, on an opportunity to own and regularly enjoy wearing this one.

    Pavarotti is beautifully made, a true artisan creation. I don't know that I'll be getting a full bottle--it's a bit more dandy-ish than the stuff I typically enjoy wearing--but it's justly acclaimed.
