    several Guerlains including but not limited to Mouchoir de Monsieur and Songe d'un Bois d'Ete
    Ambre Sultan along with other fragrances by Lutens

    vintage Furyo, Joint by Roccobarocco, Spazio Krizia
    Akkad and other EDPs by Lubin
    several EDPs by Frederic Malle, including Bois d'Orage and Geranium pour Monsieur

    I'd consider for example Kouros to be one of the greatest perfumes of all time, but I tire of it pretty quickly, same with Habit Rouge, Knize Ten and Tauer's L'Air).
    Some I really really really enjoy (and which have stood the test of time, sort of) are:

    Timbuktu
    Eau de Rochas Homme
    Eau d'Ikar
    Comme des Garcons 2Man
    Incense Extreme
    Breath of God
    Basala

    Encre Noire

    Forget about ‘of all time’ since I plan on remaining alive tomorrow I never seem to get tired of these though:

    Armani Eau Pour Homme (vtg)
    Ralph Lauren Polo ​(vtg)
    Guerlain Mitsouko extrait
    Loewe Esencia
    Floris 1962
    Odori Cuoio
    Creed Original Vetiver

    Rather unsurprisingly quite a number of them are designers..
