    I took a look as well and his fives would not all be so in my view. I relate that to the very subjective nature of this game. No low ratings may mean a person who culls their collection... More telling is the ratings of the samples listed by the poster. Devastating for some of them. Suggests the poster has a firm grasp on their reality.

    Check 'Tried'! (is a wardrobe with five stars for Van Cleef & Arpels pour Homme, One Million and Bleu de Chanel realistic??)

    Also adding One Man Show Gold Edition-while technically first released way after the powerhouse age, both its note structure and its performance behave in such way so that even few sprays can be comparatively (too) much, almost on levels comparable to Kouros and some of the few vintage/niche beast modes mentioned on this thread

    in order to specifically add a few more as further options for a top ranking:

    (vintage) Fendi Uomo, almost linear leather with strong leathery smokiness, bordering on the a certain animalic note without being a dirty smelling scent, alternatively Salvador Dali could qualify as one of the darker and earthiest dark floral, almost medicinally herbal and leathery fougeres, almost entirely lacking the mossy and the piney soapy cleanliness traditionally associated with nearly any other fougere

    Vintage Bijan for Men - awesome scent and very potent.

    I'm assuming you know of Kouros which rocks hard, and +1 Lapidus.

    T-Rex is unwearable. I'd sooner spray myself with carburetor cleaner as it's less offensive.

    Donned VCAPH yesterday. It's really something else.
    Initially I got soapy rose, then later the massive animalic hit became present, finally yesterday , it's still giving more, I get a slight smoulder, neither ashy nor smoky just brooding!!

    Thanks for the VCAPH reminder. I'm going to wear mine this weekend.
