    Léonard pour Homme (original) by Léonard

    A somewhat melancholy autumn scent. Softly burning leaves carried on the breeze. Deep, brown and distinguished. Wonderful! (de Charlus)

    Marbert Gentleman by Marbert

    Quite a smooth and pleasant gentleman. If he has a blunt edge, he keeps it well wrapped in velvet.

    Tactics by Shiseido

    A strange scent and quite difficult to describe. My first impression was that I didn't much like it and, even now, it can still remind me of a superior washing detergent. But it is a fragrance, if you'll pardon the pun, that really gets under your skin and has you compulsively sniffing your wrist, partly in pleasure, partly trying to penetrate its secret. It is poetic and unique, and somewhat monolithic in that the opening notes never change much, they simply get more subdued. It somehow manages to smell both conventionally clean and eccentrically weird at the same time. I still think the detergent analogy is a good one, but a detergent layered with overtones and undertones of mystery and refinement.

    Vétiver de Puig by Antonio Puig

    A scent of quiet authority, subdued, subtle, but with great presence. It has initially less of a marked citrus note than other classic vetiver scents like Guerlain or Carven. Sweet and bitter ingredients blend together in the most harmonious and distinguished way. A fine old gentleman, this, long lasting and with a real air of depth. A forgotten gem?

    What About Adam by Joop!

    Opening of sunlight on grass. Then it gets more subdued and subterranean. Ancestral earth, spirits of nature. Adam stirs, stretches, sniffs, savours the muted green garden smells. It's not a bad place this.

    Francesco Smalto pour Homme by Francesco Smalto

    Reticent woods filled with gentlemen strollers. Hints of lavender and maybe mint on the breeze. A quiet pool, a quiet distinction.

    Carlo Corinto Classic by Carlo Corinto

    A very nice fresh woody mossy scent.
    The blend is quite complex.
    There's a pine note there, but not too sharp.
    The base is dark amber and leather.
    Overall the scent reminds me of scents like Borsalino and even Xeryus to some point, but it's smoother.
    Very nice scent!

    1881 by Cerruti

    1881 is an underrated fragrance even in my fragrance arsenal. The first time i tried it ireally didnt give it an opporotunity to develop into the good fragrance that it really is.

    Kouros by Yves Saint Laurent

    The Baron de Charlus once delivered a lecture to the Society of Perfumes in Paris concerning the Mysteries of Kouros. 'Messieurs and mesdames,' he began, 'I am aware that the world is divided into two camps: the lovers and haters of Kouros. In an impressionistic ramble I shall explain why this is so. Kouros is a fragrance of gross richness where a honeyed sweetness joins hands with the blunt smell of semen, where hot Mediterranean suns glisten on bronzed and sweating bodies, fading to sultry nights of passion. It conjoins love and hate; it occupies a domain that unites a lazy sensuality with horny handed toil and where forever lurks the threat of danger and barbaric cruelty. Notice how it achieves its extremes of masculinity without any of the conventional mannerisms of deep leathery reticence - it is too hot blooded for that! Notice too how it is redolent with the ancient mystery of Homeric Greece - warriors, heroes, demigods, fabulous beasts, dreadful wars and mythical voyages. All in all, love it or hate it, messieurs and mesdames, I think you will have to admit that Kouros is one of the most blatantly sexual and poetic fragrances in existence - and truly unique! You do not have to wear it or even like it but I urge you to appreciate it as a true creation of the perfumier's art!

    The Dreamer by Versace

    One of the briefest but most memorable lectures that the Baron de Charlus delivered to the Society of Perfumes in Paris concerned the much praised Versace Dreamer. 'Non!' he thundered,raising his hands dramatically to the heavens. 'Non!' he declared again, this time with his voice ascending to a falsetto shriek. 'And again, non!' he announced a third time, his voice descending to a barely audible growl. 'Messieurs and mesdames, abjure this vile synthetic concoction!'

    Ghost Man by Ghost

    One of the great new launches. Could not find it in the US so I got it from the UK. It has many of the same ingredients as Le Male(Bergamot, Mint, Orange, Sandalwood and Tonka), but without the lavender it is more refined. You won't be disappointed!

    On El by J del Pozo

    WOW! - J Del Pozo RULZ !! I love adventure quasar and quasar too! This is a very cool fragrance! The only thing that goes against it (IMHO) is that it has a lot of notes!

    Premier Figuier by L'Artisan Parfumeur

    From the Genius of Monsieur Laporte, this highly Mediterranean fragrance will transport you to the shades of the Southern Italy, or to bask in the Attic sun, resting in the memory of Sicily, or the beaches of Crete. The top notes of Fig and Fig leaves flourishes with the descent to vanilla and coconut's round delicacy. It is a Siren... calling... "Come to Syracuse... come to love in Syracuse..." Premier Figuier is a warm, though nevertheless summer scent. I propose that this not necessarily be categorized as a "feminine" fragrance.

    Green Irish Tweed by Creed

    It doesn't smell like curve to me, it smells more like Cool Water. Cool Water always wanted to be like GIT but fails. But for its price i can see why most people went for Cool Water. This is a fragrance that you really have to appreciate over time just like all other Creeds. Just because you dont like it at first or it smells like Curve or Cool Water, doesn't mean it's not worth a try. Everytime i try it, i seem to like it more, and on its dry-down, it's far more superior than Curve or Cool Water. But it's not my favorite Creed by all means. I just see people compare this with the other 2 similar scents, and really there's no match, GIT defines class, only in the taste of a fragrance master, not for high school kids.

    Vera Wang for Men by Vera Wang

    This is a very classy fragrance...just like the designer. Subtle, refined, restrained, tasteful and rich. This is not a fragrance that shouts and that's part of its charm. Can be used all year round. Casual and formal simultaneously. Very special. HB Weiner/Seattle WA.

    Park Avenue by Bond No. 9

    Fresh floral predominated by iris and chamomile. The chamomile softens and lightens the iris, making this a less serious fragrance than it would be otherwise.

    Habit Rouge by Guerlain

    After reading glowing reviews, I obtained a bottle. Although it is obviously a quality fragrance, it is perhaps the most feminine men's cologne I have ever tried. Not for me, thank you. As a men's cologne- a thumbs down!

    A*Men / Angel Men by Thierry Mugler

    When I first smelled this, I thought it was the worst perfume a man could wear. But after a couple of weeks it became my favourite scent to wear on special occasions. I love the chocolate and cotton-candy notes combined with a subtle freshness. And, as mentioned before by other users, the ladies simply love A*men. I can understand any man who finds this one "too much" or "girlish" but I do think that everyone who likes "le male" or other powdery fragrances should give it a try.

    Coriolan by Guerlain

    What a pity that Guerlain decided to discontinue this great fragrance. It's still available at some very good perfumeries here in Germany but for how long? "Coriolan" is one of the few chypre fragrances that I really love. It's perfect for daytime and also for going out. I hope that there will be a relaunch sometime since it's hard to find a fragrance different from all the Armani and Davidoff-smell-alikes out there.

    Messe de Minuit by Etro

    Probably the single most unique fragrance in my closet MdM is the scent of an old violin being played my candlelight in the dampest room in a wooden manor. Old in a musty moldy sort of way that I would not describe as much gothic as I would grandma. It runs the risk of smelling like thrift store clothes. My g/f hates it, so I find rare opportunities to wear it.

    Eau de Russe by Crown Perfumery

    I really loved this!!!! I bought it blind going by the notes alone and I was not disappointed. Wonderful. Starts quite like Guerlain's Mitsouko then settles into a lovely warm oriental. Both sexes could wear this one. Clive Christian should be shot for discontinuing this beauty.
