    Pleasant wood-leather mix.

    On the first spray, I instantly thought: "This smells exactly line one of the AXE/Lynx body spray I used a few years ago." Must have been AXE Africa, Phoenix or Unlimited. 1:1 copy.

    Genre: Leather

    First I get a dry, astringent, aromatic opening that smells strongly of rosemary and dried lavender. Incense and tarry notes soon follow, along with a sweet artificial fruit note. The overall impression is relatively stark and gray. The only color comes from the air freshener fruit note, and that color is glossy hot pink.

    The sweetness doesn't last long, but it somehow manages to leave a ghost of its synthetic edge, so that the remaining accord is spare, harsh, and oddly "mechanical." Powdery elements in the base contribute a dry, musty component to CdG 2 Man, and I'm suddenly reminded of the dusty, metallic interior of a well-used CPU with its cover removed for repair.

    The incense note becomes more and more tenuous over time, and as it fades it uncovers a dry, smoky leather in the background. This is not the cowboy boots and barbecue smoke of Lonestar Memories, or the velvety leather of Eau d'Hermès. Instead it is the harsh, bitter smoke of an electrical fire. After an hour or two what remains on my skin is mostly mineralic dust dust and smoke, as if someone had recently burned an electronic device on a concrete floor. CdG 2 Man's sillage and projection are both minimal, and the scent is not among the most tenacious that I've worn.

    When I look back at what I've just written, I realize that CdG 2 Man is far less intriguing and provocative than my description makes it sound. Yes, it's odd, but I don't find it as challenging as many Comme des Garcons scent can be. It's bleak monotony is ultimately dull, and wearing CdG 2 Man only reminds me how much better this house has done in the past. In the end CdG 2 Man is nothing more than a protracted yawn.

    5 stars. Thank you comme des garcons for making this. If only it lasted longer than an hour. This, along with GPH1 (2003) are the best wood scents I've ever come across. Many people compare the two, and I can see that. CDG2 Man is much lighter to me, whereas the amazing GPH1 is dark and rich. A beautiful scent, a real work of art.

    Pleasant enough incense scent, to me smells very linear and just of a soft, fruity incense that stays the same throughout the day. That's it. Lasts for a average to good amount of time, nice for autumn and winter wear, but nothing particularly interesting about it.

    It's really interesting for me that some people keep comparing this to "Gucci Pour Homme 2003" and even some of them say this is better version of it, but for me these two have completely different scents.
    At the opening I can smell a semi sweet saffron note with lots of woods and spice and a little bit of aldehydes.
    The heavy woods and spicy part may remind you of "Gucci Pour Homme" but there is lots of saffron and aldehydes here that make this fragrance quite different.
    As time goes by the saffron note goes to the background and now aldehydes become much stronger.
    The aldehydes give the scent a strong soapy vibe and a little green feeling and beside that still you can smell woods and spices but behind aldehydes.
    It's soapy and a little green, but bitter woody and spicy at the same time with some floral notes.
    In the base I can smell a inky musky vetiver note with some aldehydes and woods in the background.
    The base of the fragrance remind me of the dry down of "Lalique Encre Noir". not exactly the same but close enough.
    Projection is really good and longevity is around 5-7 hours on my skin.
    A good and pleasant soapy,woody and spicy fragrance and I like it.

    This smells mechanical to me. And - don't ask me why - military. A military facility in the desert. To be honest I do not smell much smoke or woods or incense, I do not smell anything natural at all, just a grey, harsh cloud of metallic scent. Not sure if this is genius or I'm just making up my imagination on a smell of burnt tires. Can't really decide how to judge this. Usually I do not really like all-synthetic scents as this one appears to be, but still CdG is the only house who can always manage to make it a bit more plausible.
