    Arabie by Serge Lutens Les Salons du Palais Royal Shiseido

    Probably one of the most ingeniously crafted and superbly developing scents I've experienced. All the sweet and more subtle essences of the Holidays, yet wearable anytime. Must be tried to really appreciate.

    Givenchy Gentleman by Givenchy

    Wow! This scent is a truly heady and sophisticated classic that should be in any man's scent library. The patchouli and leather notes blend almost magically to create an aura of confidence and sensuality. A certain time-honored classic.

    H.M. by Hanae Mori

    What a fun fragrance! It's full of sensual, seemingly edible, floral/fruitiness, but does not lose it's masculine charm by the presence of this intricately intertwined notes. The strength of the chocolate and rose really come out with my skin. The fragrance is sheer pleasure to smell as it unfolds on the skin. A great addition to my collection. Very unique and sexy.

    Inis by Fragrances of Ireland

    This is truly one of the most fresh, long-lasting, oceanic fragrances I've come across. It's longevity is fantastic in that the base notes seem to blend and revitalize the top and heart notes so that the beauty of the whole fragrance is captured in this last and most poignant phase of the essence. A definite tribute to the Emerald Isle.

    Jacomo de Jacomo by Jacomo

    This is almost the epitome of a classic manly, leather scent. Carefully applied and not overindulged in this scent could be a good introduction into this genre of scent by those who favor the lighter more citrus scents. I think, however, it runs the danger of smelling a bit too common.

    Le Dandy by D'Orsay

    This is one scent that I have a lot of fun wearing. It seems to be what I classify as a "fun" fragrance with all the depth and character of a sophistated scent. The top notes are strong with tobacco and whisky, while also giving place to a fruity accord that lends cheer to the typical "dark"-ness of the aforementioned notes. The middle is a surprisingly long-lasting spice, dominated by ginger, which blends masterfully with the other levels of the fragrance. Finally, the scent is rounded out by some rich woods and balsam, which lend a strong base of longevity to the scent. Wear this scent if you feel unpredictable and playfully impulsive as it could function well within the range of a casual, office, evening, or meditative scent. A wondeful and classic addition to anyone's collection.

    Sculpture Homme by Nikos

    A very remarkable scent very reminiscnet of Desire by Dunhill, yet was launched prior to it I believe. I think Sculpture is more rich in its complexity and development, though.
