I'm 29 and male. I like nature, wolves, swords, old stuff, the middle ages, the "Romantic Period," and doom metal. If I looked cool with long hair and a beard, I'd have them, but I can't grow a beard. I sing classically and climb rocks. I hate wearing shorts.
Anyway, I can't seem to find anything that clicks with me. Here's what I've tried:
Histoire de Parfums Veni - way too sweet, way too clean
Gucci Pour Homme I - too much like pencil shavings, I couldn't escape that interpretation. Smells way too sweet to me. I'm probably using sweet to refer to something that isn't normally called sweet.
So, I hated those two.
Slumberhouse Norne - kinda silly, smells so much like pine that it bother me that it doesn't smell exactly like pine. I wouldn't mind smelling like the woods, but this isn't authentic enough to pull that off. It gets so close to the woods, that it becomes too obvious that it isn't the woods. Also, too sweet. I really thought this would be the one, too, based on what everyone was saying about it. Actually, the guy from Slumberhouse told me it was inspired by the album Bergtatt by Ulver, which just happens to be my favorite album. I'm not making that up.
Terre D'Hermes - after the citrus calms down, it smells nice, but kinda clean for my liking. Doesn't suit me.
Aramis Havana - I like this one. Smells classy, interesting. I like the spiciness and tobacco maybe. I'm not sure which notes are which yet. But, still, not really my style - more refined than I am. I'm not so classy. This is the first one that doesn't smell too sweet.
Salvadore Dali pour Homme - pretty obnoxious, almost comical opening, yet somewhat compelling. At least it has an identity. Once it calms down, I really like it. But, not something I really want to be my signature scent.
