Noble Vetiver by Chopard

Very nice, elegant, modern scent. It's like something between Terre, Beckham Homme and Fahrenheit. I didn't detect too much vetiver, but I'm not vetiver fan anyway. The longevity is very good, and the bottle is a piece of art. I bought it very cheap, so I'm really happy with my Chopard Noble Vetiver almost without vetiver.

Dior Homme Sport (original) by Christian Dior

Very good quality scent for hotter days.
Sexy, classy and worthy competitor to Chanel Allure Home Sport.
Decent longevity (5-7 hours) and good projection...
Thums Up!

Black Soul by Ted Lapidus

I've got both versions of Black Soul (BS and BS Imperial)and love them both.
This one is little bit lighter, than Imperial, and seems to me, better. Similiar to 1 Million, but more herbal and spicy. Longevity is rather shorter than 1Million, but still very good (about 8 hours on my skin).

Bulgari Man by Bulgari

Great alternative for YSL L'Homme.
Very subtle, classy and sexy.
This is how modern man should smell.
Not for hairy macho, but for the subtle, intelligent guys who know how to smell good.
Great scent with suitable longevity.

David Beckham Homme by Beckham

Best Beckham's scent for me. Very simillar to Terre, but less offensive and more pleasant IMO. Very good longevity (about 7-8 hours). I don't care about the name. This is really nice scent and cheap. Thumb Up.

1 Million by Paco Rabanne

Of course. It's very popular, because 1Million smells great.
Deep, warm, sesnual with grat longevity and projection.
Do we rate the smell, or its popularity?
Thumbs Up!

Black Soul Imperial by Ted Lapidus

Maybe there is something like 1Million, but more smoky, woody and less sweet, more herbal than 1Million. Rosted coffee is really nice.
Very nice scent for clubbing, with very good projection and longevity. Tumbs up.

H.M. by Hanae Mori

When I first tried it, seemed a bit strange. After the while, I started to like this "strangeness". Next day, I felt in love. Its' light, but powerful, seductive, animalic and relaxing. Something like lighter version of Rochas Man, but more seductive.
Lasts over 8 hours and projection is more than satisfied.
Two tums up!

Polo Modern Reserve by Ralph Lauren

This is masterpiece. If you like traditional Polo, you will love Modern Reserve.
Hard to believe, but better than his "father".
Must have for a green scents lovers...

cK one Shock for Him by Calvin Klein

Not bad, but nothing special. Reminds me something I've got. Longevity and sillage not bad for CK...

Fahrenheit Absolute by Christian Dior

Terrible scent. I tried a few times, and each time, my wife threw me out of the house. It's not even a shadow Fahrenheit. Dark, almost black musk, medicine. I feel like I was at the cemetery on a rainy day. For me, an abomination. Absolute sikness...

Fahrenheit by Christian Dior

This fragrance broke all the rules on perfume market. Never gets old, and always will be brilliant. This is a must have. Timeless and simply perfect... Two tumbs up.

Éclat d'Arpège by Lanvin

Great, great scent. It's light, but sooo sexy. I wish similar fragrance for man. If I won't find, will start with woman's version. Love it!

Kenzo pour Homme by Kenzo

The best fresh scent I ever had. Over 20 years on the market, and I still can't find anything better than this. It's like a sunny beach and clear oceanic water around. Longevity and sillage really impressive. Almost all new scent are synthetic comparing to Kenzo PH. Love it... This scent and Lanvin Homme Sport are on the my top.

Gucci pour Homme II by Gucci

Quite a pleasant smell, but nothing special. The biggest problem with smell
disappears after two hours without a trace. The weakest scent I ever try.

I am King by Sean John

Against all negative opinions, I decided to buy it. I don't like stupid arrogant name, but absolutely love this lemon, fruity scent. It's incredibly refreshing, and makes me feel younger. Doesn't lasts to long (about 4-5 hours on hot days), but like funleong wrote - beautiful things doesn't last long... That's why my thumb up...

Edit: Maybe It's sounds strange, but on my skin, I am King lasts longer than L'instant de Guerlain edt...

Champion by Davidoff

Before buy, I was reading a lot of negative reviews here and basenotes about this scent. Despite bad reviews I decided to try Champion. Maybe something wrong with me, but I've found it has have "something" pleasant what makes me fresh and younger. I like very subtle middle notes. On my skin this fragrance lasts about 5-8 hours. It's one of the best spring/summer scents I have. Now, I need to check, what's wrong with me... :)

L'Homme by Yves Saint Laurent

One of ma favourite scent. Not too loud, but very sensual... I love every drop of L'Homme on my skin. The best middle and base notes I ever smell. Longevity much better on warmer days. Perfect for every ocassion. I had to buy two 90ml bottles. Love it!

Lalique pour Homme Equus by Lalique

Great, great, great fragrance. So classy, elegant and sophisticated. It's gonna be my signature scent. Not too loud, but longevity is great on my skin.
Beautiful bottle.Now I see, how much money I waisted on crappy, but trendy scents. Standing ovation for Lalique...

Narciso Rodriguez for Him by Narciso Rodriguez

Unique, masculine, seductive and lasts almost whole day.
Great scent anyway...

Cool Water Game by Davidoff

Very fresh and extremly relaxing spring/summer scent. Lasts whole day, what suprised me.
It's gonna be one of my favourite scent for hotter days...

Safari for Men by Ralph Lauren

Much better than Escada Pour Homme. More modern and much more relaxing. Lasts longer than Escada as well. Great scent for urban alpha male. That's it...

Blue Sugar by Aquolina

It was blind buy. What I've found? This is Rochas Man, but much cheaper. I don't see any differences exept the bottles.
Blue Sugar lasts more than 12 hours on my skin Sillage - great. .Both thumbs up!

Jaïpur Homme by Boucheron

I don't know, why I bought it... It's perfect scent for actor George Hamilton ;)
Too many spices, too powdery and unfortunately it's lasts forever. It's pure Arabian Dream from the past...
I already siold mine and now, I'm really happy...

Zirh Ikon by Zirh

Very pleasant scent. Not as heavy as Gucci PH, more modern and more wearable for me. Sillage and longevity is very good. For the money I paid for 125ml edt, plus 200ml shower gel (15 pounds for a whole box) it's a steal.
Some people will say - but Gucci is very famous brand, but I don't care. And I don't want to pay for trendy sticker on the bottle. For me, more important is, what's inside the bottle. And I prefer Zirh Ikon...
Highly recommended for everyday use, not offensive and still masculine scent. And extra points for very handy bottle with magnetic cap :)

Xeryus Rouge by Givenchy

One of my best scent. It's warm and sexy. I feel very relaxed with Xeryus Rouge. It's like part of me. Like I was born with it. Great longevity, without being offensive.
For me, it's the best fragrance for winter time. Much better, than Burberry London.
It's a shame, that I discovered Xeryus so late...

Lalique White by Lalique

Lemon openig can be little bit disappointing for some of the people, but 15-20 minutes after, Lalique White starts to show it's class. Very, very subtle notes and great drydown shows, that this is a very elegant smell.
Don't expect Joop Homme smell power. It's very clean, not offensive classy scent for hotter weather. It's a WHITE scent. Like a fresh, white cotton shirt. Or T-shirt. It's extremly relaxing and lasts about 6-8 hours on my skin on winter time. And when you'll use the last drop of Lalique White, you won't throw the bottle. It's a piece of art.

Lanvin L'Homme Sport by Lanvin

I don't know original L'Homme version, but this one is really good. I don't care it's sport or not, but is modern, fresh, aromatic, unique and lasts all day. It was my blind buy and I'm very happy with it. I like this funny bottle.
After Arpege pour homme it's my second EDT from Lanvin. Very underrated producer in my opinion...

Molecule 01 by Escentric Molecules

This scent on woman works better, than hundred pills of Viagra... :)
It's........... Awesome!

Nothing can compare with Molecule 01. Longevity? It comes and goes. Mostly comes. When it comes it's heaven.It's hard to describe this scent, but I have to say - for me it's modern- oriental-vaginal scent. Don't laught ;) I was cooking dinner, using onion, bacon, etc, I washed my hands couple times, and scent staying like when I sprayed first time. Next day, after bath - same effect. It's not cheap, but it's worthy...
New era enters our territory. :)
