    A strange sort of smell, Paul Smith Man reminds me of what you'd get if you tried to create an artistic expression of wood by mixing grape drink, nutmeg, sage leaves, patchouli, chemically treated fiberboard, and a touch of bleach. It's really odd, but it doesn't smell bad.

    Mixes of similar notes are extremely common and often fail because they play up the bleachy smell, trying to be "aquatic", but Paul Smith man leaves the bleach in the background enough that it lends a sense of artificiality in an artistic way, as opposed to just smelling common.

    This sort of reminds me of the nuttiness of Kenneth Cole Black, but Man is more woody and way less bleachy. It definitely does smell like a mall scent, just one that uses the usual elements with more skill than its brethren.

    Spicy/incensey sultriness.

    Modern and glamour in a dusty, sweet and synthetic way. With Paul Smith Man i'm by soon invested by a wet spicy/aromatic explosion (vaguely a la Basala first stage) composed by hesperidic patchouli, yuzu, pepper (peppery incense) and may be cinnamon. There is soon a sort of lymphatic sweet (spicy/fruity/floral) freshness in the air emerging from the incensey floral heart and well connected with the initial wet/spicy blast. The incense is synthetic but well modulated and it does not overwhelm the diffused fruity/floral typical humidity. There is a central stage dominated by the note of iris with its known (and bit too much plastic in this case) powdery approach. The spicy/incensey floral connection from iris and violets determines significantly the distinctive aroma of the juice. I detect also a sort of lingering sticky woodiness around which is masculine and well joined with the patchouli and the final honeyed (tobacco aromatized) tonka. May be this "smokey woodiness" comes out straight from the note of tonka (a touch of ambergris yet?). Far more similar to Fahrenheit 32 (citrus, iris, violet, aromatic and spicy notes, a touch of incense etc etc) than to Dior Homme (as for many) in my humble opinion. I smell just vaguely the Dior Homme's vibe (which is less spicy, wet, sticky and sweet to me). Sultry and carnal for the lovers (not me) of the sweet and brash synthetic experiments. Nice bottle.

    Pros: Enveloping, dusty and humid.
    Cons: Synthetic and sweet."

    Iris and violets

    Reminds me of Dior Homme without the warmth...
    I had Dior homme back in the days and it totally resembles it.

    There where DH projects massively in the first hour and get skinwise next hours this scent gets more time projecting overal, the mid section and drydown is iris just as DH, i must say Paul Smith was second with this lipstick / classy iris scent so credits to the noses who created DH and DHI
    Overal a very well constructed scent for warm floral powdery scent lovers!

    Pros: Dior Homme lovers can have a backup bottle
    Cons:

    I can't believe the number of thumbs down either. Ridiculous.
    This is a lighter Dior Homme to me plus that pencil shavings note.
    My favourite from Paul Smith and a very easy thumbs up.

    I bought this today at a knock-down rate in a post-Christmas sale and although I haven't spent very long with this fragrance, I simply cannot sit back and look at the symmetrical review bar (currently 3 positive, 1 neutral, 3 negative) any longer without weighing in and adding a splash more green.

    This fragrance deserves a lot more praise than it gets IMHO - the dry bright opening of yuzu and spice is uplifting and original, and the woodsy iris note (which some have rightly identified as similar to Dior Homme) is captivating, classy and fiercely masculine. Dessert comes in the form of a lasting and rich tonka base.

    Sillage is excellent and longevity is admirable. Bravo, Mr. Smith!

    Was quite interested to smell this, but got very disapointed.

    To me, this really smells like shewed paper. Like the taste of paper.
