I'm weird and actually wear my favorites the least.
I just don't want the scents to ever get boring
so I wear them only on special occasions...

La Nuit de l'Homme (winter date night legend)
Insense Givenchy (best Spring scent of all time IMHO)
Fille en Aiguilles (Christmas in a bottle)

Bonus: Vintage Kouros...no fragrance turns more heads;
either a WOW or WTF lol.

To this day I have not smelled Kouros and I want to lol Those are some good choices my friend! I have the new La Nuit De l'homme bleu electrique and it's amazing!!! Top 5 of mine for sure!! I also don't wear my favorites that much but I have numerous backup bottles cause I'll die a slow death without em 😶‍🌫️😣☠️ I have a LOT of bottles that I cherish but I can't pick em all (or can I? Lol) Nishane Ani is also in my top 5 🧡🧡

Same top 3 for the past decade for me and don’t see it changing anytime soon, if ever…

Portrait of a Lady (original formula)
Giorgio for Men (vintage)
Giorgio VIP Special Reserve

Not weird, I totally get that. Similarly, I often go through my samples rather than FB (which are all my favourites)
In same spirit, surprised myself to wear many days in a row my least favourite FB just to empty it sooner and replace it

My top 3 would be:
New York Intense - PdN
Chergui - SL
1725 - HdP

"Often Used" was easy, thanks to the Wardrobe's Order By:Wears sorting option. "Rarely Used" was much more difficult; still these three are clear winners.

Rarely Used
Often Used
Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Lavande VeloursL'Occitane Eau de L'Occitan
Floris SandalwoodGeoffrey Beene Grey Flannel
Norma Kamali JazmínMolyneux Gauloise

I should note that it is exceedingly rare that I "frag" without having first shaved. For the past 15+ years, each step on my wetshaving journey has ended with an afterscent. Sometimes it matches the shaving soap/cream I've just used, other times it's in counterpoint; and, increasingly often, the "suds" will be unscented (or only lightly-so), to prevent any competition between it and whichever EDC/EDT/EDP I choose.

1 Dior Homme Intense
2 Boss The Scent Absolute
3 I don't have a clear third. There are some fragrances I could put here, but none is clearly above the others.
I have Boss the Scent and love it so I'm sure the absolute flanker kicks ass!! Still need to get my hands on any Dior Homme Scent.

Nice way to reply. I do borrow it:

Often used:
—Any batch of Bois de Portugal (by Pierre Bourdon): Perfection for my taste. Simplicity and tradition, low key, european.
—Both, Loewe Para Hombre and Pour Homme (by Loewe): A blend that deeply moves me. Elegant, dandy-esque, mediterranean.
Original Eau de Cologne (By Johann Maria Farina): A long lasting and citric-floral summer cologne with and amazing chamomile note.

Rarely used:
—Pewter Top Eau d'Hermès (by Edmond Roudnitska): Dated, with the most satisfying animalics in my collection. Bold. Warm. Incredible.
Ladamo Pentito (by O'Driù): Haven't found another blend this magical and with such an organic feel. Not that complex. Eternal on skin.
—1920s Acaciosa Extrait (by Ernest Daltroff): Floral golden piece. It's drydown is hard to believe. My jaws just tremble.

*Worn on clothes due to allergy:
—Charles of the Ritz and Parfums Corp. Kouros (by Pierre Bourdon): Heady. Warm. Masculine.
Mizu (by Di Ser): A perfect signature for either women and men. Distant, cold, kind of exotic.
Golconda (by JAR): Bold. Assertive. Unfriendly. High-end perfumery by a jewelry genius.

#1 - ADP Colonia: pretty much my sig scent
#2 - Amouage Reflection Man: just got a sample, could become a sig scent pretty easily
#3 - TF Plum Japonais: special occasions when it's cold out, maybe my fav all-time, just not super versatile for me

I love Chypre Palatin, I haven't found a situation where I would be comfortable wearing it. Good thing I only have a smaller decant I guess...

Wow, that’s so tough!

Currently it would be…

- Terre D’Hermes EDP
- MFK BR540 Extrait
- Tom Ford Ombré Leather (or maybe Noir Extreme)

This could change tomorrow…
