Adam Levine for Men by Adam Levine

This is just grapefruit from start to finish. Longevity is average. If you want to smell like a walking grapefruit then I recommend :)

Mandarina Duck Black Extreme by Mandarina Duck

You can smell the bergamot and pepper in the top notes. It quickly becomes quite fruity and almost smells like Xeryus Rouge but a bit more dark. Nice stuff :)

Individuel by Montblanc

It does indeed share similarities to both Joop Homme & Creed's Original Santal. A very nice scent at a good price :)

Trussardi Uomo (new) by Trussardi

This is a complete reformulation. There is no trace of the original vintage Trussardi Uomo here. Although it is pleasant, it is not the ultra-masculine beast that the 80's version was :(

Black XS L'Excès for Him by Paco Rabanne

Very similar to the original but Black XS L'Excès is very nice and bottle-worthy

Vespri Orientale by Nobile 1942

One of the best lemon-based scents around. Good longevity and sillage. A great creation from a great house.

La Yuqawam pour Homme by Rasasi

Indeed very similar to Tom Ford's Tuscan Leather at a fraction of the price!

Definitely smells of a coffee shop. A truly unique fragrance :)

Blu Notte pour Homme by Bulgari

For me this scent will always have a place within my heart. I do not know why but it always invokes nostalgia of when I was young and I saw a train for the first time at a train station. This seems bizarre as this scent was released 15 years later than that event in time. There may have been someone with a similar scent, or just that I associate this smell with a train station (but in a good way). Nevertheless, BLV Notte Pour Homme is a darker, more superior version of the original, apart from the longevity and sillage are a bit lacking. It is versatile and smooth. 7/10 but only for the disappointing sillage.

24 Platinum by ScentStory FZE

All of the Scentstory 24 series are amazing, and this scent is no exception. It oozes class at a very low price which makes it very good value for money. You can smell vanilla, some rose and a very good oud note. It is has monster sillage and longevity also.

Silver Shadow Pure Blend by Davidoff

This is a superb winter fragrance. The mix of saffron, cloves and cinnamon is outstanding. The original Silver Shadow was always one of my favourites but found that it was lacking longevity, and this corrects that, along with adding more spiciness and less powder. The notes are reminiscent of the smell of a cognac, maybe a smooth brandy or whiskey. It gives off a luxurious feel to the wearer and screams quality. Very hard to come by as it was limited edition and no longer in production. Why are so many great fragrances discontinued?

Samouraï Katana by Alain Delon

A very good alternative to the sadly discontinued vintage m7. Very woody and manly, lasts a long time.

Cuba Prestige by Cuba Paris

Cuba prestige is indeed very similar to A*Men so it gets a 0/10 for originality but on the other hand it is a very nice sweet smelling fragrance and almost as potent as A*Men, but maybe a little less harsh. Good value for money :)

Blu Mediterraneo Sicilian Almond / Mandorlo di Sicilia by Acqua di Parma

A unique fragrance that smells like a cross between orange and sun-tan lotion. Nice in a strange way, but invokes memories of being on holiday and good times. Slightly more feminine than masculine, but is very nice none-the-less.

Brasil Dream for Him by Estée Lauder

From the first spray this instantly invokes memories of Caron's no. 3. It definitely has the style of a 80's powerhouse fragrance while still being a more modern version. Spicy, fresh and quite long lasting, this limited edition frag is a keeper, 4/5.

Al Rehab Pearl by Al Rehab

This is a very nice unisex fragrance. Suitable for men or women as a summertime fragrance. Very good sillage and longevity with an unusual bottle, but eye-catching as with most Al-Rehab bottles.

Sultan by Al Rehab

A very woody musk. Some floral in the drydown and maybe some citrus. One of the most masculine of the Al Rehab line, The musk is a bit too overpowering for me though

Aseel by Al Rehab

A woody fragrance with dominant rose and oud top notes. Slightly feminine and headache-inducing with a long wear of this

Khaliji by Al Rehab

An extremely nice citrusy, musky and refreshingly spicy scent with an amazing dry-down. Maybe it's the 'golden flower' note that does it for me. The outright favourite of all the Al Rehab oils.

Dakar by Al Rehab

Very similar to Drakkar Noir, but even more similar to Caesars Man. Very 'green' smelling, slightly leathery and spicy

Silver by Al Rehab

Apparently similar to Silver Mountain Water by Creed but have yet to try that so can't comment. A clean soft citrusy musk, slightly metallic with maybe some tea notes thrown in

Al Fares by Al Rehab

A nice woody floral scent. Maybe the most 'arabian' and masculine smelling of the lot, very distinct but pleasant

Champion Energy by Davidoff

A more citrusy version of the original (which I liked) but with worse longevity and nothing original about it. Smells similar to Burberry weekend

1 Million Intense by Paco Rabanne

Not too dissimilar to the original 1 Million. Not really more "intense" as such as it lasts about the same, but is slightly fruitier and slightly less synthetic with added rose. Both are very nice but maybe not enough differences to warrant owning both. I suggest testing them both and purchasing the one you most prefer.

Amazingreen by Comme des Garçons

This fragrance does seem like an attempt from Comme Des Garçons to make a mainstream scent could be considered too 'safe' that but it is done very well imo. More masculine than unisex. Similar to CK Crave & TH Loud in the opening but done better and longer lasting.

Wonderwood by Comme des Garçons

This scent really does live up to it's name. An extremely woodsy peppery scent burst from the onset that dies down to a nice vetiver with even more woods. I can see why some people would dislike this scent as it really is woods that dominate the fragrance. Sillage and longevity are pretty good but not amazing considering it's an edp. Definitely more masculine than feminine.
