    Boucheron pour Homme by Boucheron

    Great scent with lots of elegance and a handful of adult points...nothing for dressed down days...according to me at least. Is together with Bulgari Extreme a definitive favourite when putting on a suit for a formal evening.

    Coveri pour Homme by Enrico Coveri

    80's 80's 80's...! A typical designed business fragrance, worn at the times when business men had rolled up sleves, bleached hair and piano digit ties...

    Face à Face Homme by Façonnable

    Not as strong as many of the scents today - more like a cologne! Super fresh with a typical citrusy topnote, but with some refined undertones... Definitely nice, but a little to weak to last me the entire day... Used it for some time as a before bedtime fragrance...

    Gianfranco Ferré for Man by Gianfranco Ferré

    As said before; truely a trip down memory lane... This scent was so hot in the 80's and in some aspect, still is...but nothing that I would wear again. It is said that the 80's trend is on its way back...but trends never repeat themselves exactly, and hence this 80's scent will be locked in my cabinet...

    Grey Flannel by Geoffrey Beene

    Grey Flannel is a true original... Like someone else, I first encountered it when I was far to young to wear it. The top note of violet framed in romantic 1920's setting, neatly dressed in suit and a straw hat, I believe this to be a definite must for the fragrance enthusiast...a pity that it does not come in a contrentrated version. Other GB fragrances have miles left to reach to the same level...

    Halston 1-12 by Halston

    Got interested in this frag, but different to another oldie Grey Flannel, I think that time has expired for this one. A scent for geezers...

    Halston Z-14 by Halston

    I would definitely not compare this frag to Cartier's Santos, which is a super scent... This however reaks of aged person captured in a nostalgic trip back to the time when you would exit to Plato's Retreat clad in a scent only...

    Le Mâle by Jean Paul Gaultier

    Can't say that I going crazy over JPG as a designer, but this fragrance...my goodness...it is just as wonderful as it gets... It has a distinct signature, but yet intimate and intriguing... A little sad though, is that it is so main stream when it comes to market profiling...

    Nino Cerruti by Cerruti

    This is truly one of the best compositions ever made for men!!! Toghether with Cartier's Santos Concentree, this has been the backbone of my fragrance wardrobe since the 80's. Since then the Cerruti company have been marching on a steady path to make their fragrances more and more anonymous and blend... If you ever come a cross a fresh bottle...just indulge!!! Double thumbs up!

    Santos Concentrée by Cartier

    This has been my No:1 companion since 1984 and is truly the most manly, rich and sensual scent for men ever created. When wearing this scent you will never feel unconfident with the ladies...maybe vice versa...the scent make you feel overconfident, because it truly makes you feel like a million dollars...

    Ulysse by Vicky Tiel

    Just bought a bottle for try... But have to agree with some of the more negative judgements on this scent... The opening is sort of interesting, but it does not go further...when on for some time, it smells like an undefined melange without any particular carachtere...also lack the de lux vibe that other scents evoke... Is now rather a part of my collection of room fragrances...

    Rochas Lui by Rochas

    Oooh what a wonderful fragrance...! The combination of new and old really comes together in this fragrance... What first feels like a slightly irritating neroli-cedar-old-sicilian-barbers-cologne-annodatzumal...later turns in to be a very manly, subtle but yet distinct companion for both suit days and little nocturnal play... The vanilla base note makes this somewhat formal first impression, more friendly when you reach its peak...

    Acqua di Parma Colonia Assoluta by Acqua di Parma

    Bought a 200 ml bottle of Assoluta about two months ago, and can truly say that if you wanna feel like a spotless person, in newly ironed pinstripe shirts, this is the smell to wear. According to my liking, I would prefer an Edt to enforce the cologne, when staying out late. But for office or a as refreshment before going to bed, it is lovely... In any case my bottle is soon finished...and right now I am contemplating buying a new one or go for the original instead...

    Donald Trump The Fragrance by Donald Trump

    Is this what you would choose if you hade a billion on your bank account...? Or is this what you think that a flamboyant person like Mr. Trump would smell like...? I just hope that the base of his building empire is more solid than the base notes of this house of cards... And can you imagine that this is done in collaboration with Mr. Lauder...what were you guys thinking of...obviously not perfume...

    Costes by Hôtel Costes

    Hotel Costes is vibrant and truly original place in Paris...unfortunately the same can not be said about the scent, that is in spite of its spicy opening (in my nose a little reminiscent of Gucci PH), does not deliver on the next stage and after an hour the scent is too flat to have any mystery or attraction at all left. Something a little interesting to sniff on, but nothing to wear according to me...

    Eau des Îles by Maître Parfumeur et Gantier

    An intriguing scent—it grabs attention immediately with an aggressive green / bitter coffee accord. There is an incense in there that adds more of a smoke note than an incense note. The abundance of the coffee note adds a new dimension to the dry herbal openings that I am so fond of. There is more depth, breadth, and richness than in the openings of my favorites like Sud Est by Romeo Gigli and Diptyque’s L’Eau Trois. MPG’s Eau des Iles is, as others have said, a grown-up L’Artisan’s L’Eau du Navigateur, and I’m certainly not knocking L’Eau du Navigateur—I love that one, too. Eau des Iles’s strong green / wood accords cause me to lose the florals of the mid notes; I don’t miss them at all. This coffee note is a bit different from the most of the ones I’ve encountered in fragrances—it’s serves as a strong, rich lower register note that contrasts the aggressive tendencies of the galbanum and other green notes. As teflondog says, there is no sweetness or vanilla to counterbalance the bitterness, dryness, and aggressiveness of the coffee, incense, and green / herbal notes—a fact that he dislikes and a fact that I love. In the drydown, the incense oscillates in and out in its true form rather than its smoky form; the vetiver completes the base accord to perfection. The aggressive green accords, the absence of sweetness, the smoky-incensy ambiance, and the wonderful drydown makes this is my kind of fragrance, and I find it quite wearable with superb longevity. Two thumbs way up.

    Iris Bleu Gris by Maître Parfumeur et Gantier

    TV Lampboy’s reference to Grey Flannel is right on. The iris note in Iris Bleu Gris smells powerfully violet leaf to me. I am oversensitive to violet leaf when it comes across as strongly as this – it smells horribly synthetic and obnoxious to me. Once the violet leaf note wears off, Iris Blue Gris is a smooth, sophisticated, masculine, iris / light woody / mossy / musky / powdery fragrance – a bit edgy, a bit formal – but for me it isn’t worth the journey to get to the excellent, long-lasting, unique drydown.

    Angel Garden Of Stars : Rose Angel by Thierry Mugler

    When I first heard about the Angel Garden of Stars series I nearly screamed in agony: how do they DARE to mess up with Angel?! I was especially appalled because I'm not the greatest fan of floral notes and that was exactly what they were going to add to the blissfully floral-free Angel. The shock and the horror!

    But sniff first, whine later, and to my big surprise I quite like Rose Angel. But definitely less than I like the original, a LOT less.

    Not surprisingly it smells like a teeny weeny spritz of Angel layered with a considerably bigger spritz of some soliflore rose scent.

    I prefer Angel as Angel and roses as roses, but this isn't half as bad as I feared it to be.

    Bellodgia by Caron

    Goes on sweetly, as if to say, "hello, I'm a Caron," and to portend that lovely base that finishes all Caron fragrances. Then, it takes an abrupt turn into the cool carnations and green violets before slowly warming its way back into sweetness. All the while, Bellodgia maintains a realistic rendition of carnation, sparkling and effervescent, delicately spiced of pepper and clove. An unusual fragrance, like many of the classics, and deserving of greater publicity.

    Cabaret by Grès

    A woody rose, light and airy, accompanied by the aroma of cedar. Delicate but persistent, a captivating fragrance that blends perfectly into my skin. Dry, almost chyprey, but sweet. The justaposition of contrasts is masterful. I was amazed that I liked this one so much because I usually prefer heavier scents. In the end, I am left with a beautiful combination of a mild, rosey patchouli, sweet sandalwood, and fragrant musk that take my breath away.

    Dianthus by Etro

    A brief dash of pepper lasts only a few seconds. Then a sweet, orangey carnation, blooms--and keeps blooming. This marriage of orange and carnation is warm and wonderful. The freshness of geranium and spiciness of clove provide coolness, but it is the orange which lifts this fragrance into the warmth and sun. Vanilla sweetens the whole and lends creaminess. Delicate, happy, lively fragrance. Carnation lovers, take note of this new 2006 fragrance. Those of you who think you do not like carnations, this one may win you over.

    Aqua Motu / Motu by Comptoir Sud Pacifique

    Thin, artificial and downright boring, but summery and beach-y indeed. Good if you're a teenager in California, I s'ppose.

    Brit by Burberry

    I luv, luv, luv Brit! I reach for this probably more than I reach for any! I luv it because I definitely can smell the vanilla, the slight citrusy scent mixed with the woodsy. Everything seems to take a backseat to the vanilla in the most heavenly way! And, the vanilla is not overpowering at all! I luv pretty much all vanilla scents but some are just too much! This is heavenly & for some reason makes me feel warm & fuzzy & a little flirty too! I have noticed that more men notice this & compliment me more so than women but I still get compliments from women too! 3 thumbs up in my book!

    Fleur de Lotus by L'Occitane

    Fleur de Lotus is very sheer, light, fresh, clean & watery fragrance. It reminds me of a spring day when the first flowers are blooming & the air is clean & crisp.

    Eau des Vanilliers by L'Occitane

    If you enjoy "Vanilla" then you will adore this scent! It is a nice scent but to me when you first spritz it on, sometimes it can overtake you a bit! But, after awhile, it calms down to a very soft,sensual & warm fragrance. It is really lovely for fall/winter. And, I always get numerous compliments no matter what L'Occitane scent I wear! Just a fabulous line of fragrances!

    Eau du Val / Magnolia by L'Occitane

    I agree with the review by calchic! This fragrance is awesome! A very soft, subtle but lingering floral scent that screams femininity!

I receive many compliments wearing all these lovely scents!

    Almond Blossom Dew by L'Occitane

    Almond Blossom Dew is a really nice, smooth scent! I would say it is more floral than woody or nutty but you can definitely tell there's almond in it! I luv it simply because it's great for your skin & the subtle scent lingers all day! I like to layer the lotion & then add this on top for an even more delicious scent! I luv many fragrances by L'Occitane!
