    Magnetism for Men by Escada

    In the same clan (despite some notable differences) with the various hyper synthetic/sensual Le Male, One Million, L.Lempicka Au Masculine, Body Kouros (despite its incensey background), Luna Rossa Prada, Black Soul Ted Lapidus, V&A Midnight in Paris, 212 Sexy Man Herrera etc, etc, Magnetism For Men is a mysterious talky fresh/warm ambery fragrance with all that amount of spices (pepper and nutmeg i suppose) fruits (secret berries??), watery musk/lavender, resinous plants, dark woods and balsams. The dry down (some talk about a cola sticky vibe and i agree about it) is supremely talky with soapy and leathery (suede) accents and could be undeniably appealing to the younger teenagers crowds. What is really appreciable about this fragrance is that the sweetness is utterly under control and never cloying, on the other side the juice, in spite of its appeal, is too much close to a sort of bath foam or to a talky deodorant kind of style. Not bad, indeed one of those better appointed in its genre.
