    Turned out to be much more difficult than I thought lol. First pass through it seemed easy - a lot I could eliminate without a problem. But culling it down from about 20 to 10 was pretty difficult. After that, ranking what was left wasn't so bad... But would likely change each day...

    I know right?! I'm not at all sure about it either, but I'm confident in the top 3. LIDG is close enough to LIDGE that I'll take it and assume this game is happening in a world where LIDGE doesn't exist. SDV is my gold standard vanilla so that trumps it's one-trick-pony aspect. The rest are all probably top 15 or so in my wear count with the exception of Royal Oud which I like but seemingly don't wear very often. I'm tempted to have another go at it, but I think I have the right idea with my first pass, putting the emphasis on what i wear the most with one or two vetoes.

    Default Re: Choose and Rank Your 10 Favorite From This List

    Very difficult to pick only 10, and of course it could change tomorrow. There are only maybe 10 frags on that list that I haven't smelled.

    Out of the others, these are my favorite 10, from first to last:

    Carven L’eau Intense
    Floris 1962
    Green Irish Tweed
    Antaeus (vintage)
    Egoiste (vintage)
    Memoir Man
    Sartorial
    Kouros (vintage)
    Bleu de Chanel Parfum
    Eau Sauvage Parfum

    Can't believe I put Carven L'eau Intense first out of these, but I just noticed today that I'm about to finish a 100ml bottle of it.
    That will be the first big bottle I've finished in years. Honestly, it's been years since I smelled stuff like Puredistance M, so if I had some samples in front of me this could all change quickly.

    Suprisingly tough for me, and is it bad that I felt guilty about leaving some out?! My favourites are a mix of "occasional" stuff that doesn't get worn a lot but sometimes is the only thing I could imagine wearing on a particular day, and dumb reach favourites that make me smile every time no matter how often they get worn:

    Eau Sauvage Parfum (2012 version if we can pick one)
    Encre Noire Sport

    Useful exercise in finding new things to try.
    If a list contains LDDM, BR, Musc Ravageur, and Memoir Man......I'm interested in anything else that person has to say.

    I started this but got frustrated quickly!

    Scents I know well is one thing, but many of these I know only in passing.

    For me, L'Air du Desert Marocain would be in the top spot. And that's about as far as I can get.

    I have actually tried all of those listed, but it is too much like hard work to whittle them down to ten and I am actually quite lazy.

    As my top 3. Not sure I can rank them after that, so the following are in no particular order.


    Eau Sauvage Parfum

    Atelier Cedrat Envirant
    L'ombre Dans L'Eau
    L'Instant de Guerlain
    Menthe Fraiche
    Avignon
    Aventus
    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.

    Based on personal preferences, in otherwise no particular order other than the one in which they were posted at first
    (since most of the following 10 would qualify for the top spot, only the ranking and selection as well as the elimination of others would be too difficult) likely to recommend further, as well as to enjoy wearing especially:

    Eau Sauvage Parfum
    Xerjoff Nio
    Chanel Pour Monsieur EDP
    Chergui

    Ambre Sultan
    Sartorial
