Black Soul by Ted Lapidus

Dark, sweet and brooding. The spearmint tickles the nostrils. Many layers to explore here.

Envy for Men by Gucci

This was signature cologne worthy back in the day for me, but definitely not at today's prices. Shame.

Ferrari Essence Oud by Ferrari

All parts of this fragrance perform as smooth and forceful as a screaming Ferrari engine...crank it up and smell the smoky oud emanating from the tail pipes...start gaining speed and the air becomes spicier and thicker, with the whiff of crisp roses providing contrast to all this sleek ferocity. A subtle pungent aroma is there to tickle your nostrils. After a few hours this sleek, smooth beast slows down and comes to a slightly sweet, leathery yummy destination that will last until you finally shower.

Lui by Mazzolari

Deauville pour Homme by Michel Germain

Very well made, high quality ingredients... powdery lavender and soft tobacco mixture is amazing. Soft but tenacious longevity and sillage. A keeper in my stable for sure.

Design for Men by Paul Sebastian

Fell in love with this cologne first time I smelled it at the store many moons ago. A lightly oriental, fruity, spicy refreshing fragtance that is fun to wear. Yes, its somewhat synthetic vibe to it but its very well made.

Gravity by Coty

Puke Award Winner

Obviously someone's still buying this, because its still being sold. Yuk. Excuse me while I run to the nearest toilet...

Black by Bulgari


Fantastic scent, as stated by many here. Wish the drydown was stronger, though. A little too subtle for this powerhouse aficionado.

Best by Lomani

an obscure gem of a fragrance!

This is a musky, fruity, earthy concoction that smells awesome. Very masculine. Cheap in price but not in smell. Glad I discovered this obscure gem.

Royal Copenhagen by Royal Copenhagen


[CODE][/CODE]When I smell this, I picture in my mind a cold, powdery nursing home. Not a pleasant place to be, my friends.

Mr Blass by Bill Blass

Perfection In A Bottle

Wow. This cologne just leaves me speechless. Smooth, manly, sophisticated...could go on and on. Smells somewhat like a smoother, slightly boozier Hermes Bel Ami. Good stuff.

A*Men: Les Parfums de Cuir / Pure Leather by Thierry Mugler

This is A*MEN stripped of some of its flamboyant clothing and donning a leather jacket instead, headed to some smoky tavern on his new Harley.Very cool.

I finished a bottle pretty quickly a few years ago and will buy another very soon.

Molinard Homme I by Molinard

Someone slapped on lots of baby powder at the golf course...i like it though. FORE!

H.O.T. Always by Bond No. 9

I wish the drydown would retain more of the top notes, but it's still a unique fragrance.

Polo by Ralph Lauren

Sometimes you just gotta smell like a fresh-cut lawn, just to clear the nostrils a bit. Aaahhh.

Sandalwood Cologne by Geo F Trumper

Geo F. Trumper Sandalwood is probably the creamiest, most complex and refined fragrance i've ever experienced. It's just nothing short of mind-blowing from first spritz to the long-lasting drydown. Worth every penny of its asking price.

Royal Delight by Creed

I am a man and wear Royal Delight smells completely masculine on my skin. I could name plenty of "masculine" fragrances that smell way more femenine than this one, two of them being being Geir and Hanae Mori's HM.
You seek quality? Complexity? Lasting power? WOW factor? Royal Delight has these in spades.
French perfumery at its finest here.
(and, yes, one or two sprays is enough) :)

Light Blue pour Homme by Dolce & Gabbana

It took Dolce & Gabbana thirteen years to come up with this new male fragrance.

That is really sad.

Bogart pour Homme by Jacques Bogart

I'm on my second bottle of Bogart Pour Homme, and that's saying a lot considering i own a collection of at least 50 fragrances. So well many smooth and long-lasting.
Yup, i can see myself going for a third bottle...and a fourth...and a fifth...

Habit Rouge by Guerlain

Not much to add here except that i hated this with a passion some years ago, now i love it to death...thanks to a more "mature" sense of smell i guess. LOL.

The Dreamer by Versace

I cannot go a whole week without experiencing this wonderful aroma...The Dreamer will be a staple in my wardrobe until the day i die.

Burberry London for Men by Burberry

Brandy, pipe tobacco and leather chairs.
What are you waiting for? Join the club!

Fahrenheit by Christian Dior

Smells like motor oil. Motor oil from a Ferrari parked on a lush, green lawn, a tan Playboy model sitting on the hood, sippin' on a tequila sunrise.

Hot stuff.

Stetson by Stetson

Me and Stetson get along just fine. Smells good and gets complimented often, and the price is right. What more can i ask for?

Sandalwood by Art of Shaving

If you enjoy the smell of pine and sandalwood, this is the ultimate. Smells so natural because it's made with essential oils. Not just a treat for the nose, but the body and soul also. A winner!

Tsar by Van Cleef & Arpels

Not for the Aqua di Gio crowd. Women love this on me!
26th April, 2006

Witness by Jacques Bogart

So masculine. So good. Kind of smells like Big Red chewing gum, spicy cinnamon goodness. lasts a long time as well. Great stuff.

Givenchy pour Homme by Givenchy

I'm sorry, but this is ghastly. What a stinker it is.

Kouros by Yves Saint Laurent

Smells like spiced-up dryer sheets, and i like that!
