    Own the first three which I like and enjoy.

    I was tempted to put Chanel Sycomore in list but I hardly wear it so it did not make the cut.

    I own Windsor. Since the time that I purchased it which was nearly 6 years my appreciation for it has waned.

    You like balade sauvage that much? I loved at first sniff and bought a bottle. But it seems to wear too light. Didn’t make my top 5.

    Office For Men
    pre-release Creed Viking ( as worn by Michael Jackson )
    Anything by Roja Dove,
    " Adventus "
    and the first reformulation of Office For Men ( with the superior DNA.)

    I'll pluck two of those and add 3 of my own

    Montana Parfum d'Homme (best tobacco)
    Gianfranco Férre for Man (best oakmoss chypre)
    Azzaro Acteur (best masculine rose)
    Caron Pour Un Homme (best masculine lavender)
    Aramis (best masculine leather)

    Chosen for "nicest", so I left out animal bombs like Kouros and One Man Show, or utility scents like Azzaro Pour Homme that see more use for versatility.
    oh look, I have a signature

    The only 2 from your list that I've smelled (and have) are Patou Pour Homme and Gianfranco Ferre for Man.

    Haven't smelled the other 3, but I found it interesting that as many fragrances as you have, 3 would be in your "best smelling" list that I'm not at all familiar with.

    Of course....I have no idea where to go about trying to find samples of them. Are they all vintage or still available?
