M7 by Yves Saint Laurent

A very sensual and modern fragrance, resembling Gucci's Envy. The sweet and spicy notes are blended just right, so it becomes neither cloying nor "in your face". Suitable for romantic occasions.

Gucci pour Homme by Gucci

It's elegant, but not luxurious. It's masculine, but not the most refined. It's actually rough. I can't feel any smoothness in it and that's a big minus, even for a very masculine fragrance. Overall not a bad choice, but if you want the state of the art go for Ungaro III or almost any Creed.

Rochas Man by Rochas

Without a doubt, the best gourmand fragrance. The composition is perfectly balanced so that this is probably the only 100% sweet scent that doesn't become either cloying overbearing. This should become the landmark for all the designers that want to create very pleasant and wearable sweet or gourmand fragrances.

Millésime Impérial by Creed

Am absolutely outstanding perfume! I don't see it as an unisex fragrance, but more as a masculine scent. Very clean, bright and warm, this highly elegant and sophisticated fragrance is a true masterpiece!

Jaïpur Homme by Boucheron

Probably the best oriental fragrance. Very classy, very elegant, this perfume is truly poetic. The blend of sweet and floral notes is just perfect, resulting in the most balsamic scent I've ever smelled. It's not necessarily the most masculine scent, but that's a good thing because instead of the heaviness and the roughness of the classical fragrances, you get a luminous and luxurious scent. The only problem is that the mid notes tend to be a little soapy, which can become a bit cloying.

Green Irish Tweed by Creed

Along side Ungaro III, the best perfume ever! Incredibly elegant and sophisticated, this woody fragrance is for the man who understands the importance of a perfect look and attitude. The Creed man is a gentleman... his shirt is always clean and his shoes are always polished.

P.S. I don't smell anything green in this one...

Escada Homme by Escada

I was very surprised to discover that Escada can make such great perfumes. This one is truly exceptional, a highly elegant woody-floral fragrance that goes perfectly with a suit and a tie. Somewhat similar to Ungaro III and Green Irish Tweed, but not as deep and complex as those. If you're looking for high class, faultless style and elegance, this is a great choice.

Envy for Men by Gucci

This one abounds in sensuality, I think it's one of the sexiest fragrances on the market. Resembling YSL's M7, it has a woody-sweet oriental aroma that is ideal for romantic wear.

Bois du Portugal by Creed

Like all the Creed creations, this one is also a masterpiece. It's one of the richest and most complex scents, and the veiling of the sweet notes by the spicy notes is very subtle. Unfortunately, sometimes too subtle... An earthy and woody scent, this one is for gentlemen only!

Acqua di Giò pour Homme by Giorgio Armani

Good for athletic activities and summer days, but nothing special at all.

A*Men / Angel Men by Thierry Mugler

The top notes are awful, it's more like a stanch than a perfume. But as it settles down, the mid and base notes are pretty nice and warm. It's sweet (like all the gourmands) but not necessarily cloying. If you can hide for 10 or 15 minutes after you've sprayed it, then it's ok to wear this in public.

Ungaro pour L'Homme III by Ungaro

This is pure art & pure emotion ! An absolutely outstanding fragrance, a true masterpiece !!! The hight of elegance and sophistication is achieved in such a natural way, that this becomes one of the most comfortable and wearable fragrances. An epic scent, a poetry of roses and woods, a perfect blend of the finest ingredients. It goes beyond your senses and takes your soul to a journey where the future and the past merge into the uppermost sensual and romantic experiences. You'll discover new emotions and relive the past ones through the purest and most naturally sophisticated scent.
