Stardust for Men by Llewelyn

I'm surprised to see the tepid reviews here so far, given that this one is in my Top 10.
Well, preferences are bound to vary. I find this scent very rich and bold. It is not
ashamed to put it's Mexican Lime, Nutmeg, Sandalwood, Patchouli accord out there for
all to smell. The persistence of the accord is remarkable. The zing of the top notes
lasts throughout the drydown. This scent lasts all day, and is pleasant from beginning to end.

If anything negative can be said, perhaps it is that the development is limited. It's fairly
linear. It finishes where it starts. With an accord this good, I don't consider that to be
a bad thing. This is a powerhouse scent, and not one for the "I want something light"

Patou pour Homme (original) by Jean Patou

This is a superbly blended, rich, and
intoxicating scent. The fact that
at the time of this writing all 15
previous reviewers have given this
the thumbs-up says it all. This is
extremely rare in Basenotes reviews
and speaks to the almost universal
adulation fragrance lovers heap on this
jewel. Please bring it back,
Proctor & Gamble!
