    Maybe they're letting it stand because this one isn't male specific (though in that case maybe it should be moved to General Fragrance Discussion.)
    I think you can report your own post and get it moved ( though I'm sure they'll come across it eventually)

    It shouldn't necessarily be a controversial thread on a perfume discussion site.

    I throw around perfect 10 ratings freely, anything I like enough to backup, for example, could have a case. Those would include:

    1. Chanel Pour Monsieur
    2. Chanel Antaeus
    3. Chanel Egoiste
    4. Christian Dior Jules
    5. Christian Dior Fahrenheit
    6. Givenchy Gentleman
    7. Balenciaga Ho Hang Club
    8. Moschino Pour Homme
    11. Dior Homme
    12. Platinum Egoiste
    13. Versace L'Homme
    14. Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche
    15. Polo
    16. Chanel Egoiste Concentree
    17. Chanel Pour Monsieur Concentree
    18. Guerlain Habit Rouge

    It's a question of style. Everything I appreciate to this level follows a somewhat similar style.

    I will. Tuscany has not been ruined by reformulation. It compares well to the vintage.

    Yatagan. Full stop.
    It’s tragic to think that heroic man’s great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.

    After all these years and hundreds of fragrances, there are 13 that are a perfect 10/10 for me:

    Invasion Barbare
    Terre d'Hermes
    Royal Oud
    L'Air du Desert Marocain
    Green Irish Tweed
    New York Intense
    Bel Ami Vetiver
    Cedrat Boise
    Tabac Rouge
    Menthe Fraiche
    Bleu de Chanel Parfum
    Dior Homme
    Side Effect

    *Private Label just misses this list. It's about a 9.7 to me.

    I thought about this for a while. When people give an example of their perfect 10, on the most basic level, that means it's something they think is a great/perfect example of the subject.

    On a slightly deeper level, though, I'd be interested to know what the specific characteristics/qualities are that people use to reach the perfect 10 judgment.

    I say this because I felt like nothing, for me, was a perfect 10. Quite a few nines. Then, the only one I could come up with as a 10 would be Bleu de Chanel EDT. Why? Because---again, for me---this is the scent that I enjoy the most which can be worn during any season and occasion (from casual to formal). So, while clearly a matter of opinion, I feel that one of the qualities a perfect 10 must possess is versatility.

    As I'm emphasizing, I don't believe I'm stating a universal principle here.

    SMW is close to a 10 for me because I like the smell a lot and find it extremely versatile across occasion. But, I've come to think of it as a fragrance that doesn't quite fit hot weather usage.
