Yes, if Tom Fords Grey Vetiver is considered to match the profile of a Macho Mans Scent, then Terre D'Hermes by Hermes, ip JC Ellena has to be suggested first. For they share the same target group, but TDH drives the concept even further to its center: If You don't know how to smell, project it brute. TDH: transparent, translucent, read don't know what, but make it everlasting.
The good thing about TDH is, it smells like these huge public mediterran vegan bio-waste cans outside - including the "flint" which is rotting eggshells. Know that? I -really- like it! Some odors are complex, mellow, if not smelled in their original context! But it is unwearable for a man of true style due to its rudeness, which is the >50% Iso E Super.
I recently tried Morabitos Or Noir, though. Rude, resembling ammonium chloride, licorice, sweetened. Some reviews got diesel plus flowers, soapy inventing a story around it, a trucker drove into a front garden - it mustn't be that complicated. It stinks if modern expectations are concerned! Try that.
