Bulgari pour Homme by Bulgari

Pepper Tea

A couple named Pepper and Tea

Were married by Frere Bvlgari.

Their union discreet

Is far too effete,

A weak disappointment for me.

Uomo? Moschino by Moschino

Morning Sunshine

Sometimes the notes of fragrances are familiar, clear and real;

Other times I'm just impressed by the way they make me feel.

And Uomo? Moschino makes a statement in my mind:

A lovely morning, fresh with breeze and glowing with sunshine.

I almost feel like Wordsworth as I listen for a lark,

On a new day with Uomo? (and there's no question mark)!

Silver Black / Onyx by Azzaro

Deserves Consideration

With a modern twist to a classic base,

Metallic apple hits your face.

Its spicy heart and woodsy end

Makes this a manly, useful friend.

I like the fact that apple stays,

And so my interest never strays.

If you like good, uplifting tonics,

You should consider Azzaro Onyx.

Eau de Cartier by Cartier

Subtle Beauty

Elegant, subtle, and refined,

For an introspective frame of mind.

Close to the skin, it lingers on,

I'll re-apply before it's gone.

I wish that it would longer stay,

But "Less is More," the pundits say.

(And thus it is, this Cartier).

Z by Ermenegildo Zegna

Alternate Aquatic

If that sea of aquatics is too long a list,

Here's one worth trying, a definite twist.

To clean, fresh and fruity, add citrus and tart,

Enough of a difference to set it apart.

Lithe and linear, projection's not strong,

But for summertime pleasure, it sings it's own song.

Duc de Vervins by Houbigant

Merci, main non.

I think I shall just stick to my trusty Drakkar Noir,

Pardonez-moi, Duc De Vervins--excusez moi, ce soir.

Hot Water by Davidoff

Lukewarm Water

Bought it on clearance, and that's what it's worth,

As for creativity, it features a dearth.

Pleasant and sweetish, like so many more,

Not long-lasting on me--that lowers the score.

I'm neutral on this one; 'twill soon be forgot.

So buy it on clearance--Hot Water's not hot.

Nuits de NoHo by Bond No. 9

Sweet Stuff

A sweet bouquet of flowers,

Lovely as can be;

Unisex? Well, maybe...

But too feminine for me.

Burberry for Men by Burberry

Why Bother?

Same old, same old, fairly weak..

Tiresome, boring, not much tweak..

This Burberry Men is not unique.

Oscar de la Renta pour Lui by Oscar de la Renta

Princely Powerhouse

Imagine if you can the scent of a man:

These days not cool, definitely Old School,

But if you like "class," don’t take a pass,

Because this Pour Lui (applied sparingly)

Will lift you to heights of manly delights.

Long may it prosper, this Pour Lui de Oscar!

Tous Man by Tous

Nice and Fresh

Tous Man is fresh, fruity and nice,

Made more attractive by herbals and spice.

Although I like it, I'm not ecstatic,

But it's better than the average aquatic.

In Heaven Him by Tous

Fruity Fad

Sweet, fresh, and fruity, you’ll find far and wide.

The bottle’s more interesting than the perfume inside.

Just spray on your linens—you’ll like that a lot.

It’s short-lived and pleasant, but "Heaven" it’s NOT!

Rykiel Homme by Sonia Rykiel

Green Gem

With a bottle like a tee shirt, I thought "a casual vibe."

And yes it is, but really there is more to it inside.

The sweetness of the berry—the citrus kept it checked,

And the dry, green notes determined that I give this Homme respect.

At play, at work, at banquet—this one will smell good on ya,

More people should discover it, and so I thank you, Sonia.

Chaleur d'Animale pour Homme by Animale Parfums

Sweet Heat

This scent sounds rather fearsome:

An animale in heat!

Methinks the beast is tamer,

As I find it rather sweet.

But since I'm fairly thrifty,

The beast did make me pounce

To find a scent that saves a cent,

A bargain by the ounce.

I wear it on occasion

Though it leaves me in a quandary:

How an animal in rutting heat

Can smell like fresh, clean laundry.
