Well, using my Shaving Buddy app, I have the 5 I use the most (the top 5 is a bad metric as it is the overall shave that is rated, then the aftershave that appears in most in high rated shaves is singled out).
1. Pinaud Clubman
2. Clubman Reserve Gents Gin
3. Aqua Velva Ice Blue
4. Pinaud Lime Sec
5. Barbasol Brisk

Ogallala limes and peppercorn bay rum
Ogaliala bay rum double strength
Pinaud lime sec
Pinaud whiskey woods
Brut

not a negative on PAA atomic age, just decided cost for me wasn’t worth the product.

I'm too torn to rank mine

Proraso Green
Reuzel
Clubman original
Fine Lavender
Fine Snakebite

Soon I'll trying some Stirling AS out, first will be a bottle of Varen (loving the soap), then sampling some other flavours thinking Spice, Glastonbury, Sandpiper, Blu, Dunshire and Gin and Tonic

We'll see what happens to the list after all that.
Updated list of faves (unranked):

Proraso Green
Varen
Clubman Original
Fine Snakebite

Of those others I tried above, the only one I'll probably get a bottle of is Glastonbury (like Varen with patchouli).
 
Off the top of my head in no particular order
Vintage Yardley Old English Lavender
Sir Irisch Moos
Alt Innsbruck
Fine Fresh Vetiver
C&S O&C
Vintage Yardley Black Label

Hahahaha. I'm showing my age, but I like the old stuff that was around when I started shaving in the 1970's

1. Pinaud Clubman original
2. Pinaud Clubman Classic Vanilla
3. Old Spice (I order from India for the original Shulton recipe)
4. Aqua Velva (hot weather go-to after Proraso green shave)
5. Pinaud Lilac Vegetal

I have them all on my shelf, I don't experiment much any more.
