H.M. by Hanae Mori

Will make you smell like a gigantic, sweet, androgenous Lemonhead candy. After a couple of hours you'll get some chocolate. If that's your thing, here's your juice.

Personally had to pass on this and prefer to use Oyedo when indulging in a lemon candy experience.

Obsession for Men by Calvin Klein

Cloying cougar magnet

Said to be attractive to lions and such, anybody who has ever smelled a zoo knows that this is not a good sign. It also makes one of the few occasions that this scent could be worn without offending anyone, a stroll through a deserted part of sub-Saharan Africa, much more dangerous.

Pros: Project it does
Cons: Not the right sort of cougar"

Green Irish Tweed by Creed

Posh Cool Water

Posh Cool Water Green Irish Tweed is undoubtedly a finer scent than its Davidoff cousin, of much higher quality, smoother, less of the somewhat stiff, aggressive wife beater vibe, alas as I recently grew a tad tired of cheesy, old CW and other scents in this style (e.g. Lomani pour Homme) I did regret spraying this on my skin. If you enjoy this kind of fragrance though then this could be a great choice.

Pros: Lovely, quality scent
Cons: Brings to mind a certain popular megaseller

Obsession for Men by Calvin Klein

The smell of a middle aged, sweaty, 70's couple with hair in all the wrong places getting it on in a cheap hotel room, using amber coloured toys. The smell of their Obsession hits you in the hallway.

The smell of a leather faced teacher massaging the shoulders of a young student when looking at her test sheet. She could smell him approaching minutes before, smelling his Obsession.
