  1. CK Euphoria Men

    Damn, and I so wanted to like this one.

    Just for a minute it went through a phase of smelling exactly like a gorgeous BPAL I sampled years ago, one of the Zorya fragrances I think, probably a spicy-floral; at that point I was completely convinced I needed a full bottle. An hour on it's drying down into yet another tedious For Men base blend; I'm on the point of washing off, but CK's restraint and the fact it's on the sweeter and more unisex end of masculine is saving it for me. It's ...

    I was worried about this fragrance because of the Tonka note in it. I thought maybe it might make the scent turn a bit too feminine on my skin. I'm happy to report that isn't the case at all.

And just to be clear, this is not a projection beast.

  3. Tom Ford Oud Wood.

    Tom Ford Oud Wood:

    I love the opening of this, there's an incensey spiciness there that I could wear all day, but unfortunately it dries down all too quickly into a dry and astringent wood scent. I'm not surprised to see sandalwood is a major heart note as it's not one I love (and all too common in For Men perfumery). I really don't understand why smelling like A MAN has to mean smelling like somebody juiced a cleaning closet over a parquet floor. This is one of the least unpleasant ...

    On my skin the EDT version had a slightly better scent and performance. I actually noticed a little projection with it to the point that I sprayed it on before going out with my wife and she commented in the vehicle that I smelled good. So I did get a completely unsolicited compliment with this fragrance right after putting it on. I also let a couple of my wife's smell it and overall response

    I have to be very clear here. I wanted to love this fragrance. I still think the scent is good. The problem on my skin is this fragrance is a skin scent basically throughout the entire dry down. The only times I ever caught a whiff of the scent was whenever I was very active. At those times I thought the cologne smelled really nice and I could see where it got so much of its praise. However
