    Gucci pour Homme by Gucci

    A bold, super-woody experience! It is sexy in an animal sort of way, unlike any other woody scent out there (although Commes des Garcones is in the same category). Sophisticated box, striking bottle, and extraordinary brown liquid inside. Be sure to try it first, and then try it again after some while, to get the best impression of this scent; it may or may not work, depending on your impression.

    Chic for Men by Carolina Herrera

    Tried to like this one. It's not all that bad, but it is a bit strong for a citrus scent. It has a mysterious quality to it overall that has one scratching the head trying to figure this one out. Acquired taste, methinx. ;-)

    Armani Code / Black Code by Giorgio Armani

    Hmmm....tried to like this one. It's not bad, but maybe it's that unpleasant olive flower that keeps prodding me in the midst of an otherwise decent scent with potential. It seems to have too much in it, or just not the right stuff, for it to be a great fragrance. Best suited for casual outings, I think. (And is this the scent
    to replace Emporio Armani Night, a masterpiece
    which I miss?_

    Rose d'Homme by Les Parfums de Rosine

    Wearing Rose D'Hommes right now. I usually wear it for special occations. It is not very unusual but the scent itself is absolutely intoxicating. Beside my signature scent Voleur de Roses its the best scent I know.

    Le Parfum de Thérèse by Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle

    Why am I not impressed? Why does the fact that it has behind it such an illustrious heritage ( the last unedited Roudnitska ) and romantic story (dedicated to his wife ) failed to convince me? Why have I not succumbed to the innvation of the scent ( a fruity-floral with a marine accord in the 50's)?
    Simple : fruity and aquatic are not for me. Period. Nice frag but not for me.YMMV.

    Musc Ravageur by Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle

    One of the best musc-perfumes , around in my humble opinion , though there is no musc listed. Maurice Roucel knows his job , that's for sure.
    Very potent , although it ultimately becomes a skin-scent , so sparing use of it will serve you well. Just a drop is enough. Other than that it is curiously spicy , animalic , very soft in a sweetish way that reminds me of tonka and very warm with a background of amber. Cuddly for winter nights and would surely elicit compliments if worn by the right individual. Prim and austere or girly-bubbly types need not apply

    En Passant by Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle

    I was so sure I'd like this one.....Lilacs with dew. That's what I expected.
    Fade out.... then fade in to the reality of it : a doughy note that in collaboration with the cucumber manage to deduct the sweetness of lilacs and their lush character.
    Modern and very innovative , no doubt , but not in a Van der Rohe style. Nothing with the power of Bauhaus or making such a statement. Prettier and more conventional than that in a way. And here lies the problem. Because lilacs , elusive flowers as they are in perfumery, are already beautiful and feminine and capturing that aspect to the perfume would result in a Art Nouveau style. No need to go for the aesthetically minimalist when the material base is not so inclined.

    Angéliques Sous La Pluie by Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle

    I quite love this and have to say it without shame. Light , breezy , perfect for chilling put in the summer. Rained-upon stems and leaves , coriander smells , gin on the rocks , a little incense perhaps in the background? That's the general impression. Lovely!
    Eau de Cartier doesn't last all that much , neither does this ( not loud anyway)Maybe I should opt for the Eau de Cartier Concentree. Or wait for the ASLP concentree version of Malle. Will return.....It's haunting.

    Cologne Bigarade by Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle

    This is actually about the Concentree version which is different than the Cologne Bigarade:

    Top note of sharp and bitter citrus of an agreesive variety gives way to a Declaration-like drydown with a bit of cumin ( personally I am not afraid...)that lasts well and mellows a lot.
    If it was a little less sharp at the beginning I'd wear it all the time for casual occassions. Plus the Declaration is more readily available

    Vétiver Extraordinaire by Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle

    One of the best vetivers out there , even if it doesn't feature the eponymous note dominantly ,alongside Vetiver Oriental by Serge Lutens and Vetiver Tonka Hermessences( which is very sweet and completely different ).
    Needless to say too much here. Just TRY it , even if you think that vetiver is a musty smell that can't possibly be good on a woman. It can and here is proof of it. A different one! Bravo

    Monsieur Carven by Carven

    Gradevole fragranza floreale e cipriata allo stesso qual tempo.

    Ha avuto un certo successo alla fine degli anni '70 ed i primi anni '80, per poi (almeno in Italia) sparire inesorabilmente, lasciandoci solo il bel ricordo...

    Aveva una ricca linea che comprendeva: after shave, saponetta, doccia-gel, schiuma e crema per barba, deodoranti, oltre che il noto edt in spray ed in stillagocce.

    Vétiver de Puig by Antonio Puig

    Uno dei migliori esempi di edt al vetiver.
    In Italia ha avuto il suo momento di gloria nei primi anni '80, per poi cadere nell'oblio: tant'e' che e' uscito di produzione da parecchi anni purtroppo.
    La fragranza di vetiver alla "puig" e' di rara bonta' ed e' piuttosto persistente.
    All'epoca si trovava anche l'after shave, il deodorante spray ed il sapone oltre che l'edt in spray ed in stillagocce.

    Rose d'Homme by Les Parfums de Rosine

    I'd recommend this as a superior sandalwood fragrance. The rose is very fleeting, but the lovely sandalwood persists a long time. Although the name 'homme' means this rose scent was designed for men, we women like to wear this, too.

    Fahrenheit by Christian Dior

    One of the most interesting scents for me. You love it or hate it. It's one of my favourites. It has "additive" properties. It's not easy to define this perfume - is it for casual or everyday wear? Fresh but warm, spicy. For people with strong personality.

    Lacoste pour Homme by Lacoste

    A very well balanced scent. Fresh but refined, elegant yet not too serious. For every occasion. A little too sweet for me but very masculine. Original. I would recommend it rather for mature men. Not the best, but a really good fragrance.

    Sybaris by Antonio Puig

    You know when you come across a well done piece of work, no single component or attribute overwhelms the piece - this is Sybaris. Soft, complex, rich, beautiful full woods, understated elegance.

    Vétiver de Puig by Antonio Puig

    An fine old gentleman indeed! Vetiver de Puig is unlike any other vetiver I have tried. It has that pungent Puig 'note' that is evident in the top notes and continues to dominate the dry down. To my nose it has astrong likeness to Quorum - but of course lighter. It lasts as well, but lays closer to the skin than Quorum. I bought my bottle in Spain and it seemed very well suited to its natural habitat. I have not yet worn it back in dreary old England, but I suspect it will work just as wll here.

    Brut by Fabergé

    Its only fault is that it is omnipresent and inexpensive to buy, and to many people it smells of their dads and grandads (not necessarily the most romantic connotation in the world). A fine fragrance, which in 1964 was well ahead of its time. Beautiful herby concoction, very well balanced. It is still selling - for a reason! (Andrius Uzkalnis)

    Axe Africa / Lynx Africa by Axe / Lynx

    Lynx is, essentially, a line of unremarkable supermarket toiletries, but Africa does stand out with its distinctly sweet/fruity and spicy tone, balanced by sweet-smelling woods (I think). In Britain, it does define the end of nineties very well.

    Axe Phoenix / Lynx Phoenix by Axe / Lynx

    Phoenix does not smell of anything connected with a desert or for that matter anything connected with Phoenix, AZ... but it still is a nicely structured, very masculine fragrance, with good earthy/salty tones and a brilliant leather base. Do not worry that it comes from a supermarket. It is an interesting, memorable smell.

    Dior Homme by Christian Dior

    Very nice woody fragrance on par with Gucci PH. Definitely a lot of depth to this one as well as sillage. The drydown is something worth waiting for.

    One of the best releases in the last year or so.

    parfums*PARFUMS Series 3 Incense: Kyoto by Comme des Garçons

    I finally completed the incense set with Kyoto this year. I don't think it tranquil so much as urbane exotic woods. Tea house, if not tea itself, in spite of the coffee. Rei Kawakubo reflects her native culture well here and so unlike any mainstream idea of scent, Kyoto is a must for the incense collector.

    Givenchy Gentleman by Givenchy

    I bought this one coz of the givency label, but frankly I find it too strong and I think it might be off putting to ladies. It smells yucky.

    Green Irish Tweed by Creed

    My No.1 Frag, everytime I put on GiT I get compliments and turn many heads, I have had strangers come up to me and ask me what i was wearing, if your looking for something to catch peoples attention in a good way then GiT is for you. Yes it does smell a bit like Cool Water, I just got say GiT is like the Real Coca Cola, and Cool Water is the cheap supermarket ripoff.
