Verveine by Fragonard

Verveine is unisex and yes it actualy could be for men only !!! I couldn't think that's any more wrong. super sweet and sour lemon candy.. is not masculine. This is a nice smell, but so is a bag of lemon candy.

Nice scent for girls though. However I have started to use a spray of this on top of the most manly fragrances I have, I find it adds a really nice, sweeter, fresher toutch complimenting many very well, especially "Lapidus" by Ted Lapidus. I have to give it a neutral rating

Coconut Lime Verbena by Bath and Body Works

I love it. I'm a 24 yr old guy and I'm using this during the summer days. It has a citrus top and the coconut isn't extremely noticable, but maybe that's best, if it did I think it could lean towards the "tanning lotion" kind of thing. The lasting power seems ok, not great but I've had much worse. Really fresh fragrance

Lapidus pour Homme by Ted Lapidus

I've tried two Ted Lapidus fragrances, this and "Ted". Ted is still my favorite everyday fragrance. I'm a younger guy and like the lighter sweeter scents more than the typical 80's strong manly ones. Lapidus was a blind purchace, and at first I was pretty dissapointed. I saw the top notes of Lime and Pineapple and was hoping they would be more prevalent. As soon as I sprayed it I thought "I'll never wear this". It smelt too strong and spicy, and I didn't picture anyone else liking it. But I've worn it to work for a week now, and I got a bunch of compliments from some girls and a couple of ladies saying they liked it which was great. since then (a week ago) I started really liking the smell myself, maybe I just got used to it or the strong start, but either way I like it a lot now. It smells great after an hour or so. It has decent lasting power too. This has got me interested in trying out some more "classic" mens 80's frags. I probably won't buy this again, it's nice, but I'd rather try some other fragrances in this style. if I find nothing similar to be better I'd come back to this though

Ted by Ted Lapidus

Probably my favourite fragrance for general use. Lots of compliments whenever I wear it. The previous review described it well. I don't have much to compare it to, but to me it smells a bit like Hugo, with less spice and more of a fruity citrus scent to it. I lof it

Hugo by Hugo Boss

I tried a Hugo Boss fragrance at an airport a couple of years ago and loved it, and believed it was this one, so I blindly bought it. But it was actually Boss Bottled that I had tried in the airport. I was a bit dissapointed when I smelt this for the first time, I thought it was nice enough, but I was looking for the sweet fruityness of Boss Bottled.
But now I really like Hugo, even though it has some negative reviews I see it as one of the least offensive fragrances. A nice mix between a fruity and spicy scent with enough of a woody base to come together nicely. I'd give it 4 or 5 out of 10 because I can't really fault it
