    Tuscany / Etruscan by Aramis

    a spicy,fresh,nice and simple edt.Suitable for a man.Convenient at any time.Not a great perfume like JHL but ok.I you look for a good edt, that doesn´t smell as all the edts you may have tested then try tuscany.Do not splash too much-it has power!And noone will complain about it!This edt doen not go on your nerves or on the nerves of others!

    Présence by Montblanc

    Mont Blanc a very well known company for really beautiful and nice writing stuff launch perfumes-incredible!Stick tto what you have been producing for centuries but leave your fingers away from making perfumes!Cheap, boaring and vulgar scents without character and soul-yes, this Mont-Blanc-and folks on top they produce watches!Mont-Blanc will never and ever become Chanel, Patou.Guerlain,Gres,Givenchy and definitely not Rolex,Patek Philipe or Breguet!!!!!!!!Stick to your pens and pencils!!!!!!!!!!One od the worst scents I ever tasted!!!!!!!!!

    Macassar by Rochas

    yes indeed-another great, outsatnding perfume!A masculine,intense and virile scent-individual and special.This scent belongs to the time when really good perfumes still were in production:patou pour homme, ivoire of balmain.And Macassar-what a name-woody,spicy, warm and aromatic-all ingredients in the right mixture-Rochas has launched top perfumes as Femme,Mystere Tocade (for women) and moustache-all these perfumes including macassar will survive and have been made for eternity.Macassar is a wonderful perume for a mature and handsome man.Awsome and gorgeous scent!

    Lanvin L'Homme by Lanvin

    warm and fresh but nothing special-boaring!A cheap , everyday scent-very simple.Lanvin launched great perfumes but this one is sad.Oh you may use it to clean the toilet...sorry but such waters are so disappointing .....

    Lanvin for Men by Lanvin

    I remember being in paris on a school trip....and i bought my first edt and it was lanvin pour homme-decent,warm, with a fresh and clear note-a very nice and loveable scent-Very classy and fine perfume!Hopefully one day they will relaunch it again!

    Givenchy Gentleman by Givenchy

    Hubert de Givenchy one of the great , distuinguished and elegant couturiers of all times-have you ever seen what he did for his muse Audrey Hepburn?Okay and his edt reflects all this: classy, elegant, superbe, sublime and sophisticated.It will last forever-another outstanding and intelligent svent for the hall of fame!These were still the times when people were still able to think -launching interesting perfumes you would recognize among thousands because they had class and were unique!And Givenchy for men is a gebntlemen´s cologne-really a great work by Monsieur de Givenchy!!!Yo will never and ever forget this perfume-not like the trash of 2006......

    Eau du Sud by Annick Goutal

    Yes, Annick goutal has been one of the great parfumeurs of our time-eau de sud is one of the outstanding perfumes she did-classy, sophisticated, to my opinion more suitable to a woman-deligthful,with character!It reminds me of Italy in summer-Annick goutal has perfectly kept the flavours of the sud-light, fresh, intense,longlasting,mostly citrus notes-beautiful!This is a reaaly nice spring and summer edt-decent, sublime and perfectly composed!

    Acqua di Parma Colonia by Acqua di Parma

    not bad but there are so many other perfumes! Again a great marketing campaign, perfect advertising and the whole machinerie starts to work- this is a simple clean and fresh citrus water-totally overrated-if you look for an elegant and classy scent try pour monsieur by chanel-this is definitely better...but if you need to wear a perfume that has been a favourite of Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman (they say so...)and you need to say stuff like that-then buy it!But if you are self-confident and you are a mature man sure of himself have a look at something special, intelligent and rich-there are so many outstanding and distinguished perfumes!AdP is a nice water of lemon but nothing more-nice bottle and package.I think it is better for a woman!Oh, they did even candles with the flavour...try this first before you waste the money for the edt....

    Van Cleef & Arpels pour Homme by Van Cleef & Arpels

    Another really great perfume-very distinguished,elegant-for a gentleman,definitely not for a hip-hop boy!Lot´s of different notes-leather,spicy and warm-powerful and potent.Be careful using it-if you take too much it may kill you or cause nauseas!I would use it preferably on formal events, in the evening.But you may use it throughout the day but in small doses.It is a classical scent that will survive forever in the jungle of colognes,scents,waters etc.An outstanding performance of van cleef and Arpels.And as a woman you should try First by van Cleef and Arpels....AWESOME!

    Prada Amber pour Homme by Prada

    well this has been so disappointing....such a boaring, feminine and uninteresting perfume!I tried and tried but-no, definitely no-it is a no go!I was expecting a great sexy, special and modern scent-i am still waiting for a perfume launched in this decade i could fall in love with but even prada has broken my heart-well prada has been very progressive and innovative in fashion-always at the edge and risky-but the perfume is nothing special-yes , you can use it to clean whatever or maybe as a room spray...so sad...it is even a woman´s scent-what did she then when she developped prada for her????!!!!Anyway, it is simple and a touch of nothing-you will forget it in some months-this perfume won´t last forever!!!Prada what?who? Oh miuccia what happened?you are such an interesting lady but the perfume is horrible!

    Black by Kenneth Cole

    i must say that it should be forbidden that evry fashion designer launches his perfume-again a very sad and average perfume.....Black?!You don´t know what BLACK is!?Black is Bandit by Robert Piguet-there is this black mystique and dark odeur!But Black of Kenneth cole is a bit Happy of Clinique mixed with a bit 212 etc.Nothing special- as it has been said:mediocre!Why does noone dare to launch a personal and individual perfume he is convinced of and stands befind???Instead we get cheap,simple scents that meet the expectations of the market!Has Mr.Cole ever tasted the perfumes of Balmain,Lucien Lelong,Chanel-these are great scents!Or the unforgettable Schiaprelly or Nina Ricci?Please, be more risky !

    Mark Birley for Men by Mark Birley

    very disappointing and average-nothing special! This is not like A-men of Mugler, JHL of Estee Lauder,Bandit of RobertPiguet,etc.-no, it is boaring and uninteresting.Instead of wasting lots of dollars for this EdT you may go to the next drugstore and buy a well priced soap that will definitely make you happier!If you like this kind of cologne then please try Eau sauvage of Christian Dior or the Yves Saint Laurent por homme-this is class , good taste and a better choice!

    JHL by Aramis

    this is one of the great, outstanding perfumes for the hall of fame-Very classical, elegant and interesting!Oriental, warm,a bit sweet-it is cinnabar(Estee Lauder,woman)for a man.Please take only a few drops-it is very intense-the less you take the more you will like it...it won´t go on your nerves!It lasts very long.And it is a very nice winter perfume.I even liked the story behind the perfume-estee lauder did this perfume for her beloved husband-very nice bottle and package-very individual and special!!This is not an average, blabla edt you may find one day in a cheap drugstore-no, no this is an outstanding edt for intelligent, classical gentlemen!If you want something very special then go for it but if look for trendy, chic stuff leave this page ! And if you fall in love with this perfume you may like the guerlain scents too.

    Herrera for Men by Carolina Herrera

    Have you ever seen Carolina Herrera-okay, beautiful, classical, feminine and tasteful lady-and so is this perfume!Tasteful, classical, elegant and special.One of the great perfumes of the 90ties.You knew that Carolina Herrera´s perfume is fracas of robert Piguet-that matches!Carolina Herrera for men is classy, sexy but in small doses! Be careful if not it becomes too intense and sharp!In the right dosage it is fresh and cool-it si warm and cold-the right mixture of all ingredients!

    Devin by Aramis

    the first edt i ever used in my life and i still love it although there are more intelligent, decent and interesting perfumes than devin.It is definitely a man´s scent, nothing androgyne or feminine-no this is leather, spicy, deep and powerful.I is a unique and special perfume and one of the great aramis perfumes ever made!Do not take too much - it is you who comes in and it is about you NOT THIS perfume

    Bulgari pour Homme by Bulgari

    having a view at all the scents launched in the last years i must say that bulgari for men is one of the best but it is absolutely not comparable with the great perfumes of patou, balenciaga, piguet and caron!It is ok-and concerning the positive aspects-they all have been mentionned here: clean, freh, nice etc. buti miss this touch of being something very special and unique-it is ok and nice but it does not stand out.There are perfumes-when you smell them you automatically turn your head around...and wow...so bulgari for men is not such a scent!But compared to all the other stuff....In my opinion Bulgari should stay producing jewels and not perfumes-for century they áre into jewellery and suddenly-oh, let us make evn more money-and hurry up-let´s launch perfumes -no ladies and gentlemen...leave the perfume making to coty, caron,chanel, balenciaga,patou, creed etc. and make nice jewels.....

    Aramis by Aramis

    it is a nice, classical edt and different from the stuff you can buy nowadays but it has a touch from the 70ties-but it has a touch of an older man,being in his 50ties, conservative, a kind of a daddy ...it is still special but is not wow..-there are great scents from the past that will last forever, there are scents that will survive till eternity although they have been launched in the last centuries but not aramis.This edt is ok, it is all right but not the hall of fame!

    212 Men by Carolina Herrera

    after the gorgeous and amazing carolina herrera man this company and I guess it was her daughter launches 212- it is a sad copy of thousands edt you can buy evrywhere-okay the outer appearance, the package and design are nice but the perfume is to me a grat deception-very poor.I expected her to develop again a great scent but 212 is average-freh,clean and similar to the rest.If you look for something different, special, individual then have a look at creed,annick goutal,nicolai or etro.Hopefully Carolina Herrera presents next time a perfume that is worth to buy!

    Bandit by Robert Piguet

    this fragrance is definitely unique, remarkable and hors concours!you won´t forget the person wearing this excellent perfume.....but it won´t work for everyone!This is not a perfume that can be compared to the garbage that is launched nowadays-no, this is really first class and one of the great scents of all centuries!Try it, leave it on your skin and wait, and wait....this is hot, hot and sexy - and dark, very dark!This is mystery, adventure, badness and agressiveness but it may change....If you are a connaisseur and you go for intelligent perfumes then it will be the right choice!You have to be someone special,different....as a woman and a man-specially if you´re a man you should be handsome, virile, dark and with class!

    Cabochard by Grès

    yes, another great,great perfume!sexy, sophisticated,elegant and sexy!Yes it may be comparable to Tabac Blonde and Bandit of Robert Piguet-another two outstanding perfumes but Cabochard has it´s own class!So many different notes-an incredible mixture of wonderful ingredients.Well everyone has another skin and it may interact different but Cabochard is hall of fame and a unique and special fragrance for a classy,sexy and charismatic woman!

    Cuir de Russie by Chanel

    one of the really great perfumes of all centuries:interesting, unforgettable, intelligent and like bandit of robert piguet and tabac blonde of caron-hors concours!Perfumes for individualists, looking for a unique scent with class-cuir de russie is for someone loving leather perfumes but this perfume is so much more!!!you can wear it even as a man but then you have to be a real man!Take only a few drops .....then wait....and you will enter paradise....but be careful-if you go for the type of perfumes that are thrown on the market every week and you may buy for a dollar in all kind of shops then leave it and hurry!Cuir de russie is a very very special fragrance of another time but timeless and if you´re a really classy, elegant and distinguished woman then give it a try-i imagine you, in a classy valentino or oscar de la renta dress, giving me a smile and if i would smell this perfume...i would die....ladies, this is an unforgettable scent but definitely not for everyone.....but if you are the one....then it will be heaven for you!!!!!!
