I enjoy wearing Sung Homme - not all the time, but it does have a place on my powerhouse fragrances shelf. There is an obvious synthetic note in Sung Homme which gives it a dichotomous nature. This is the only fragrance I enjoy that smells (somewhat) synthetic from start to finish. It smells (soapy) clean while at the same time I detect a sort of seedy side to it. This is apparently from that mysterious synthetic note. I notice this vibe only after a few hours of development, during the drydown. It's not terribly pronounced, but it's there. It really does remind me of a seedy, cigarette smoke-filled dive (very similar to what rodent describes in his review), and I like it that contradiction (clean/sort-of-seedy, but not really dirty). ! Regardless of it's split-personality, Sung Homme is a powerful fragrant force, and certainly worthy on inclusion, and discussion!
