Himalaya by Creed

Ouch! A strange hissy, metallic element lies beneath this generic masculine. The perfume equivelant of chewing tin foil. Interesting packaging, but that's about the only positive to glean from the consistently dissapointing house of Creed.

Aromatics Elixir by Clinique

A killer chypre which tramples over all the other insipid Clinique offerings. Manages to be both simultaneously bright and dusky. Evokes a sunbeam entering an ancient forest.... Earthy, sophisticated, complex and totally appropriate as a modern masculine male fragrance

Dior Homme by Christian Dior

A marvellous powdery iris note set on a base of vetiver, wood and tonka bean. Yes it could be classifed as a "feminine" fragrance, but in a world of incredibly banal marine/citrus concotions I can only commend Dior for releasing such a bold concoction. A sophisticated, subtle and refined fragrance - leagues ahead of many other male frangrances released in the past 5 years in terms of its complexity and originality.

Bandit by Robert Piguet

Bad tempered, bold, brash and sinister..... An exceptional and brilliant fragrance. Bitter green notes, leather, dirt and tar. Wear this and you'll feel like a Celtic warrior heading into battle.....

Mitsouko by Guerlain

A floral opening quickly settles into a peach/labdanum blend before settling into a comfortable base of woods, herbs and Guerlainade. A masterful three component accord and one of the (if not the) best chypre ever produced. An unique balance of both loud, unsettling notes as well as softer, more comfortable accords. It can also be pulled off as a great and individual masculine fragrance (yes, really)
