Eau Noire Cologne by Christian Dior

It smells like black treacle, mixed with with cheap dark rum, and flea powder.
In essence, it's awful.

YSL pour Homme Haute Concentration by Yves Saint Laurent

I tried to like this, I really did...
A blind buy (not my wisest move) given all the love here for it. And there is an element to the frag that I like; the classic harsh/dry lemon smell is nice, kinda reminds me of an element of Monsieur de Givenchy.
However that one element is wrapped up in a smell which I can only describe as being like sweat mixed with urine.
Not pleasant.
Perhaps it's my skin, perhaps it's my nose, but it just does nothing for me and will now sadly languish at the back of my wardrobe.

American Crew Classic Fragrance by American Crew

A very clean, slightly spicy, slightly citrusy smell which is nice when sprayed.
However beware it has the longevity of a fruit fly... more of a spicy cologne than anything else.

Blu pour Homme by Bulgari

Smells to my currently uncultured nose like soap powder mixed with talcum powder.
Not a bad smell, but it did give me a headache after about half an hour.
Still it shows good longevity on my skin.
