    As you are buying current formulations, the Acqua di Gio Profumo by far would be my recommendation of those listed.
    Current Top Ten:
    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Jasmin Antique (Rogue Perfumery)
    3) Giorgio for Men vintage (Giorgio Beverly Hills) - tie
    3) Giorgio V.I.P. Special Reserve (Giorgio Beverly Hills) - tie

    5) Dia pour Homme vintage edt (Amouage)

    6)
    Anat Fritz and its reissue, called Classical (Anat Fritz)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Lucifer (Renaissance Fragrances) - tie
    8) Monsieur de Givenchy vintage (Givenchy) - tie
    8) Polo vintage (Ralph Lauren) - tie

    We did understand that. Maybe you didn’t understand any of the answers. I saw nothing wrong with any of them.

    Damn. Blame it on reading this thread poolside.
    Thanks for the correction, Beck.

    Hmmm. Well, i don't know how hard you want something to pound. I was hesitant for years to buy Eau Sauvage EdT due to it's rep as light- low longevity.
    But it is such a well discussed classic I took the plunge. It is not as bold and long lasting as Egoiste or Antaeus. But it surprised me that it hung in quite a long time. It just wears quite lightly. I consider it a "going to the dentist" kind of scent. It's noticeable but not overwhelming.

    I wouldn't push it on anybody other than to say it's nice, light classic masculine scent. A good office scent, or good for things like meetings,dentist, doctor etc where you don't want to fill the room with your scent. I might even wear this to a job interview.

    Have not tried the parfum versions. (There are two by the way- 2012 and 2017.)

    I'm a recent convert to this COSTUME NATIONAL HOMME. Very cool scent. Surprised me. Try it in future.

    On the current list you're looking at, OMBRE LEATHER is one that more or less pounds away for hours if potent scents are your desire.
    Shocking how much I like that one. Never got along with TUSCAN LEATHER.

    Second choice: Eau Sauvage Parfum (don’t expect a great performance)
    Third: Noir Extreme.

    Not stocked by the retailer I'm afraid. They have the parfum which I own, the edt and the cologne.

    Thanks for clarifying re the edt. The parfum on sale with this retailer will almost certainly be the 2017 version.

    If having a to choose and recommend among these, Havana, Eau des Baux and Pour Monsieur EDP would likely be in the definitive selection

    If you can find samples or small decant I strongly recommend sampling the Allure Homme Edition Blanche EDT cologne concentree and the original Fahrenheit from the late 80s/90s. The earliest formulations are the best imo.

    Sorry, no problem to find nice choices from the second list as well: would therefore go first and foremost for Eau Sauvage Parfum, at least one Chanel Allure flanker/version and at least one TF scent, maybe Noir or Noir Extreme, but would not completely exclude the tobacco, oud, leather ones among both regular and also designer exclusive TF scents.

    Thanks everyone for your responses. I decided to order the Eau Sauvage Parfum.

    Will be adding Fahrenheit, AHEB, Noir Extreme and ADG Profumo to a future purchase list. Cheers.
