    Gold by Donna Karan

    Very nice, smells great. Still, nothing outstanding or original. A good anonymous fragrance, good for everyday wear or at the office. Soft, floral, grown-up. For a woman with modern taste, in her 30's.

    Pi by Givenchy

    This is the only cologne I wear. Givenchy PI has a unique "sweet-vanilla-sugar" smell. I wish I could find something else like it.

    Mediterráneo by Antonio Banderas

    I think it's a good scent. I heard from girls that it's very interesting and sexy... My girlfriend liked it very much on me!

    L'Eau d'Hiver by Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle

    After previously giving this one a thumbs down, I have finally come around to appreciating the delicate scent that this is. It is yet another Jean-Claude Ellena fragrance that is somewhat muted and less in your face that I can truly appreciate for the beauty that is L'eau D'hiver.

    A*Men / Angel Men by Thierry Mugler

    This is one of those that one day I will love and then the next I'll hate. I love how this smells after a few hours, it is an amazing gourmand. I do however occasionally dislike the top notes, I find them a bit of a let down for something as great as Angel Men. The drydown however makes up for the opening, and makes this one smell incredibly delicious, I would never hesitate to wear this granted I had a few minutes to allow the opening to die down.

    Route du Vétiver by Maître Parfumeur et Gantier

    The only reason I could think for wearing this is to freak out all the Yatagan users, especially if you go to steakhouses for dinner and they order their meat rare--stand on the table, and yell at the waiter to bring in a live cow and a sharp knife.

    Pass on this, yes even in minute quantities. Pass on A*men in minute quantities, How about layering one with--never mind, let's keep or food down . . .

    Derby by Guerlain

    Derby is one of the fragrances I cherish the most. I actually almost never wear it because I am just rarely in the mood for it, but I like to know it is <i>right there</i>. It is the only true male "perfume" in my opinion : it exudes serene luxury and utmost refinement in an exclusive, distinctive and uncompromising sort of way, like the smell of a world that's almost gone. For all those moments when you need to feel like you're worth a million dollars ! ;)

    Epicéa by Creed

    If you like pine, this is one you simply must have. It is clean, fresh, crisp (thanks to some mint), and yet quite warm and inviting.

    If you don't like pine, however, this one isn't for you. There are certainly more things going on other than pine, but I can smell it easily all the way through to the drydown. Longevity was pretty good for me, as well (unlike many Creed's), and my only other caveat would be that this may be a hard one for younger guys to wear easily. In many cultures, pine trees are symbols of age and experience, and I think that this scent lends a bit of that maturity as well.

    Himalaya by Creed

    If you are like me and like odd niche scents (like Rose Poivrée or Cologne Bigarade), then it may take you a few wearings to get used to Himalaya. When I first tried it, I thought it was too safe, too sweet, too conventional, and like far too many other scents on the market obtainable for 1/4 the price. But, after letting it run its course over three or four wearings, I really found this one to be quite pleasant. It is clean, fresh, crisp, but with class to spare. It works very well for daywear, especially for meetings or at work (where, unfortunately, stinky roses or Malle's sweaty oranges just won't cut it). If you try it only once in a store, I don't think it will be enough. Give it three or four full wearings and I think you can "warm up" to Himalaya.

    Sandalo by Lorenzo Villoresi

    The most meditative fragrance I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. Perhaps as close to a holy grail as I will ever come, and this quite literally: warm, comforting, tempering, fortifying, Sandalo is virtually a pocket-size religion. The spiritual dimension and ritualistic importance of several key ingredients support this bold claim. I find the sandalwood to be an immediate presence here and the oils grouped around it serve to emphasize its calmly uplifting woody sweetness rather than the harsher, pungent aspects equally latent in this mysterious Mysore wonder. You will find very different sandalwoods, but none better than Villoresi's intellectual and emotional masterpiece.

    MCM Success by MCM

    My assistant hadn't even seen me turn the corner yet, but my whereabouts apparently preceded me.

    "Sir, donning the old smoking jacket so early in the morning?"

    MCM Success is a powerhouse 80s fragrance, yet worn cautiously it remains quite pertinent even today, and I find it a real treat to wear! While there are some floral elements to the top- and mid-notes, the dominant notes to my nose are tobacco and leather. In this vein, it is similar to Creed's Tabarome, though not quite so dry as that classic scent. The earthiness of patchouli is also present in MCM Success, along with vetiver and moss. It is a very masculine scent, and I should definitely wear it more often.

    Carrìerre by Gendarme

    Carriere smells of fresh clean laundry straight after you bring it in from the garden on a sunny day. It's ideal for sport and exercise because you smell very clean and fresh the whole time. Not 'perfumey' but quite aromatic. Lasting power is not bad.

    Rykiel Homme by Sonia Rykiel


    I disagree with the majority - this is long lasting, and strong sillage (esp rarer edp version) but it just feels 2 irritating to my nose - also smells very similar to Benneton cold

    Jaïpur Homme by Boucheron

    Easily one of the best Orientals for men on the market today.

    If you're going to get it, though, spend the extra $ and get the EdP version -- you won't regret it.

    The heliotrope topnotes are intoxicating, and the ambery rich vanilla drydown is one of the best I've ever encountered, no doubt about it.

    Orgia by Myrurgia

    This perfume has a nice strong golden orange color. It is a warm scent, not sweet, but soft and slightly oily/salty. It is musky, but clean musky, a little soapy. Stays close to the skin. Very natural, I think, like someone with good smelling skin. It's ok, but I like fragrances with more to them.

    Cool Water Woman by Davidoff

    My friend got this for me. Smells masculine like a lighter version of Cool Water for man. The scent didn't last too long on me maybe a few hours but the good thing was that it didn't give me a headache like some perfumes. My brother likes it and says it was nice (something he didn't say with the perfumes I liked) but he likes to wear Cool Water for men. Personally it's not for me.

    Vétiver Extraordinaire by Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle

    I'm among those who have not been fans of Vetiver fragrances typically, but this one works very well for me. I received a couple of samples when I purchased Musc Ravageur while in NYC and boy, did I make them last! It has a real freshness to it without smelling like a mass-market clone (not that it should at this price point, granted). I find it vibrant, earthy and masculine without any of the "sour" quality I've experienced while wearing other Vetivers which shall remain nameless. And the longevity for me is almost unmatched. Between this and Terre d'Hermes, do I need any other daytime mainstays? Not for now anyway...Bravo!

    Patchouly by Profumum

    This is the dirtiest patchouli I've ever smelled. Patchouli's not exactly the cleanest scent, but this is like patchouli encrusted in wet dirt. There's some smokiness here that's present right from first application, and to me the sandalwood smells more "woody" than "sandalwood" to me. Although I'm not a huge fan of patchouli, this one scores points for being different than most. This potent scent clings to the skin. Nuetral because it's not for me, but I can respect it standing apart from a typical patchouli. Longevity is outstanding. I woke up with this still going rather strong on my wrists.

    This fragrance is genius. It is the essence of what a real man should smell like - the residues of hard work.
