Yacht Man Metal

by dreese on 30th April 2014 at 07:38 PM
In my Yacht Man reviews, Metal is up next, This is a very brave and potent woody citrus. Initially, it reminded me of the original formulation (1980s) of Chanel's Antaeus, but now I realize that it is almost identical to Allure Sport Homme. This may have been intended since they both arrive in metal flasks. The white musk is sweet and warm and it stays beneath a well-rounded, hearty center of citrus, cedar, and pepper, with a finish of a soft aquatic layer softly placed across the top of the whole

Yacht Man Black

Updating my Yacht Man reviews, Black is up next.
This wins the all-time award for the shortest duration and lowest projction of anything I have ever dealt with. I'm not exaggerating when I say that it begins disappearing between the bottle and your skin. In order to achieve any type of lasting scent, I had to apply 4x the amount of a regular fragrance. Even then, the best duration I could accomplish was around 20-30 minutes.
The scent itself is very pleasant; a soft mix of lily, iris,

Yacht Man fragrances

by dreese on 31st January 2014 at 04:49 PM
To date, I have purchased 4 of these and have loved 3 of them unreservedly. The Yacht Man scents are often maligned on basenotes and the contempt seems to begin because of the extremely low prices of these scents ($6-$7 per bottle). Other fragrances in that price range are usually not even worth that amount. Many complaints are made about the poor longevity and projection, and these are valid; Yacht Man scents dissolve down to skin level in 15-30 minutes and disappear altogether by an hour. To combat

Mustang colognes for year-round use

by dreese on 17th April 2013 at 01:59 PM
I own both Mustang and Mustang Blue and have been shocked at the spectacular quality and balance of each one, in spite of the cheesy marketing and name. I have concluded that, since Mustang may be one of the best Fall/Winter scents and Mustang Blue may be among the best Spring/Summer scents available, one could conceivably be well served in staying with just the two of these year-round. Please feel welcome to discuss, dispute, or otherwise test this theory.

Reviewing inexpensive colognes

by dreese on 12th February 2013 at 06:34 PM
Having been a casual Basenotes viewer over the last 4 years, I noticed a preponderance of praise for the more expensive colognes and a general disdain for inexpensive cologne. This pattern evidences itself often in reviews when the reviewer mentions the price, or offers comment along the line of "not bad for the price, or "not bad for a cheapie". The Creed fragrances are tiresomely mentioned daily in every thread as the best. The overall impression given by this pattern is one of
