    Default Sung Homme

    Yeah, I know there has been a recent thread about it.
    I posted a question and nobody replied.

    My question was:
    is there something similar to Sung Homme, but somewhat softer?
    I love the scent, but it's quite harsh at the application, and remains very strong for a long time. Wish to get something softer.

    TIA!

    Have you tried Aqua Quorum and Wings? They aren't exactly the same but they're along the same lines. They're clean scents with a touch of spice and lavender. They're really inexpensive too.

    francois, Your right abot the hashness of Alred Sung.

    I would say that it's got a staying power, especially in the top notes that would rival almost anything

    on the market. It just keeps going and going and...

    I like this old school scent but the only way I can wear it is as follows:

    Right after I get out of the shower I towel off ,except for my chest.

    I spray 1 shot of Sung from about 1 to 2 feet away on my chest.

    I allow the water on my chest and the applied Sung to air dry before putting on a shirt. (Works for me)

    Sung Homme actually does not pronounce itself on me, but it does last... one time I wore it in the morning and after moving my fiancee's stuff, at around 7 pm, I could smell it on me. It might have just been my body heat.

    Sorry but I can't think of anything like it though. I really like the zesty, yet spicy top notes, they are reminiscent (somewhat) of the top notes of Dunhill for Men (1934).
    In rotation: Greenbriar (new), Silver Mountain Water, Dunhill for Men (1934), Acqua di Parma Colonia, Habit Rouge EDC, Ho Hang, B*Men, Agua Brava

    I posted on the previous thread that, to my nose, Estee Lauder Knowing (marketed to women) is like a softer, more delicate Sung Homme and doesn't have the skunkiness that Sung Homme can have when first applied.

    Just because it happened to you doesn't make it interesting.

    In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

    I always loved Knowing. I also detect a little Aramis in this scent.

    Thanks Steve.
    I need to try that one!
    It should be easy to find at any Estee Lauder counter I guess.

    Best,

    I smelt Knowing today but didn't like it.
    It was too feminine for me, sorry.
