Journey Man by Amouage

Too similar to Mark Buxton's Cologne Noire for Van Cleef & Arpels to be bottleworthy. Very nice though. And I love the pepper and tobacco.

Mon Numéro 6 by L'Artisan Parfumeur

Fleur de Liane and Magnolia Romana in a subdued marriage. The impression of fecund wetness (per the advertising copy) really is spot-on. But if any technician can do competent impressionism, it's Duchaufour.

The supposed 'girly' facets such as the rose, jasmine, mango, etc. are very well integrated into the whole and aren't immediately noticeable, making it a great male wear. In fact I suspect it would be far more distinctive on a man.

Beautiful delicacy (possible longevity issues?) and construction.
