Like other reviewers stated, this one is different. Smells a little soapy and somewhat greenish. There also seems to be a licorice vibe in this one. Overall, this is a pretty good frag! Something different.

A really gorgeous, fresh, clean fragrance. Starts green and just a bit synthetic but nice. There is a "sea breeze" note in this and this comes through next and in the drydown. Staying power and sillage are good. One of the freshest scents out there! A BIG thumbs up!!
Clean, and unusual. I do notice similar notes to Montana for Men (The BLUE box version).
Rykiel Man can be had for a bargain and would be a nice wardrobe addition to those who like clean and soapy fragrances.
It's a refreshing change from the ordinary.
A Big Thumbs Up!
Today I went to my side shelf for my SOTD, I went with something called Rykiel Man. This is, hands down the most unique fresh fragrance I've ever smelled. EVER. I cannot break this fragrance down. The closest I can say is that it smells like limes, soda, rosewood, laundry detergent, and a little tea. It's not soapy, there's no spices, it's not oriental, but it is very green and fresh. I don't really care for it, but it is very very intriguing, in fact, I've never been so intrigued with any fragrance, ever. This must be smelled.

The reviews for this are absolutely right; this is a very unusual scent. There is a synthetic aspect to it, but it is attractive in a strange way. I feel as if I am in a garden with soda pop ferns and laundry detergent flowers. One may start to hallucinate wearing this. It has a vague resemblance to Shalimar for women.
