My taste is pretty middle brow. I simply don't have the cash to pony up for more exclusive stuff and I haven't gone out of my way to find them for testing. My favorites that I've tested are probably the following:
Tom Ford Black Orchid
YSL Rive Gauche
Chanel Pour Monsieur
YSL La Nuit De L'Homme
Acqua di Parma Bergomotto
Prada Amber Pour Homme Intenza
Dior Eau Savage
Hanae Mori HiM
I own a few that don't get much play that I regret buying: Mont Blanc Individuel, Ralph Lauren Safari, D&G The One, Encre Noir. My everyday cologne is Ralph Lauren Explorer, despite it being pretty boring. Rive Gauche is probably my second most used cologne. I was using Acqua di Parma Aranci a lot this summer, but put it away for fall.
Still trying to get my nose on some others:
Creed Millisimme Imperial & Bois du Portugal & Tabarome
L'Instant De Guerlain
I'd like to get into the Givenchy, Tom Ford and Guerlain lines more but haven't really had access to them. I'm having a lot of fun with it though.
