Reviews of Comme des Garçons 2 Man

Smokey, spicy, masculine opening. Smells very mature but not necessarily old-school. A modern scent for a gentleman but with a casual, working feel. Make no mistake about it though, this is not a young man's scent.

I get good projection and longevity from CdG 2 Man, lasts all day.

Cool, crisp and unusually fresh.

Comme des Garçons 2 Man is a woods and incense fragrance, with a touch of spices. The incense is waxy at the start; later on the woods take over, churchy cedar laced with dry vetiver. There's the allusion of smoke throughout. The spices are ethereal. The incense keeps drifting in and out.

2 Man is subtle and elusive, but on the odd days it reminds me of its staying power, which is so-so. It is light, but not exactly lightweight, airy, and a tad diffusive. While not quite my style, 2 Man remains one of the best woody incense perfumes on the market; and that opening is exquisite.

I like the freshness here. Unconventional, innovative, and sort of a new way of looking at things. There's something modern and urbane here, but not without intelligence.

Then Smoke cooed to Wax,
In lowest Barry White tones,
"Can only be 2."

Great fragrance from CdG. Man2 is a smooth combination of vetiver, incense and a light, almost hidden leather note that comes forward just enough to make this a unique type of chypre combination. I don't get much iris or mint as other reviews describe, but a hint of nutmeg lingers, but not in a gourmand fashion. The comparison to the original Gucci is only a passing one IMO. The sillage and longevity could be better. If you want an inoffensive, professional masculine fragrance, this is a great option. I'll give it a thumbs up.

A rich, decidedly masculine woody creation! I much prefer this to the unisex CdG2, which is just too loud and weird for me.

This one is similar in a way to Gucci pour Homme, though it has that unmistakable boldness and distinctive "CdG" character that their "Odeur" scents typically have (i.e., synthetic but pleasant).

Unique and a great scent to wear if you want to really stick out from the conventional fragrances usually worn.

The Our Lady of Victory Basilica in my hometown of Buffalo, New York has a very specific smell. The place itself is somewhat intoxicating: a world of gaudy white marble, worn copper, and cavernous alcoves, draped and drenched in traditional Roman Catholic imagery. It somehow made going to Church a little less excruciating as a kid. But I can conjure up the smell of the place in an instant. And 2Man is a near perfect replica...

Incense. Warm, sticky olibanum, both the smoke and the resin (not phony stick incense, either), heavily spiced with dry nutmeg and allspice berries, toasting cinnamon and cumin seeds.
Candles. Burning, in their brass holders, and recently extinguished (Turin hit that on the head, indeed), and hell, throw the snuffers into the mix too. Dried citrus peel at this point.
Wood. Old and dry, waxed and shiny. Slightly singed, crackling. Cedarwood, certainly pinewood. Pine resin at times.
On my skin, 2Man is dusty, time-worn, and resinous. The olfactory equivalent of the sound of stepping on crunchy, dry pine twigs on stone. I find it intoxicating, dark but not uninviting, and perfect for wintertime.
