    Considering the scents in your wardrobe, i would go with Lolita.

    But i think the best of the bunch is Ungaro III.

    I think links are fine. I've posted several with no complaints..................

    Don't know those scents so no comment on them.

    Ungaro III is a damn fine fragrance, but, as always, one must keep in mind that scent is subjective. I love my bottle of Yang which I received on Monday, but someone here, who didn't like it, actually described it as smelling like smoked meat/sausage. I have no doubt that when he sniffs it that's what he's experiencing, but I love the stuff and sure as hell wouldn't wear something if I thought it smelled like smoked meat/sausage. So, if I were you, I'd definitely get the Ungaro, but then again, you may get it and think it smells like...I don't know...funky old shoe odor or something. ;D

    The one time I shopped blind I ended up with a broken toe and grocery cart full of slimfast and prune juice. ;D
    I will never do that again, I lost alot of weight and spent most of the time on the toilet.

    Wow....all three look enticing. I own Lolita and HM and am considering Ungaro III. All three are nice, but all three are different.

    Hi there!

    You may want to check out www.strawberrynet.com too before placing an order. This e-store has all the products you named, but at the cheaper price

    * Au Masculin 100 ml edt spray *EUR 49.50

    * Hanae Mori edt spray 50ml * * *EUR 38 * *
    * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 100ml * * *EUR 48.50

    * Ungaro III 50ml edt spray * * * EUR 29.50

    And www.dutyfreeperfume.co.uk offers Lolita for £22 plus shipping £3.95 (~39 euros)!!! Of course from Ebay.com (ebay.co.uk, ebay.de) you'll probably find all the three for even more affordable prices!

    Based on your wardrobe I find it hard to recommend any of the three over the other ones. You know it depends what you're looking for and even more your personal taste! But I'll try my best, so here we go!

    Au Masculin is a gourmand scent like A*men and if that's what you're looking for my verdict is that Au Masculin could fit the bill. It's very strong in anise and liquorice, so you really need to like these notes! I would classify Hanae Mori as a semi-gourmand scent, since I don't detect any edible notes in it (if we don't regard black currant as such). Some others have said that they can pick up white chocolate in it, but my nose ain't probably sophisticated enough and all I get is sweet fruits, berries (back currant) and flowers on a vanillic sandalwood base. It's heavily sweet and in that sense it's similar to A*Men, otherwise they are quite different gourmands to my nose - A*men being dark (chocolate and patchouli makes in dark to me) whereas HM being brighter thanks to it's more emphasized floral and fruit notes.

    I have only sampled Ungaro III (several times though) and it isn't my cup of tea :-/ But you might even love it! It smells a bit old school scent to my nose and I believe that's why I don't care for it that much. To my nose it's soft, floral, yet dark semi-sweet scent - drier and darker than Xeryus Rouge, but still having somehow similar "touch" in it. It's been refered to as a gothic fragrance, so if such a scent is in your style then Ungaro III could fit the bill too!

    Tough case, ha?! I've been in your shoes many times - it's a pain in the ass to live here where we have only the most best selling designer scents in our stores! If only I had those scents I would love to send you samples, so you could try before buy! But perhaps there will be some other helpful basenoter, who has at least one or two of these scents and who could make you a big time favor and send you samples! My lesson has been that NO ONE except yourself can tell you if you're gonna like something or not since liking any scent is deeply a personal thing. We can here give you only our guiding verdicts!

    Take care and welcome on board!

    Cheers,
    another Finn Tero

    Considering that you already got a chocolate scent, I think you should go for the Lolita Lempicka. Don't know about Ungaro III, I haven't try it so no comments about that one. Unless you hate aniseed or liquorice, you will love Lempicka! Its a very unique fragrance.

    I was thinking that only thing A*men has that i dont like is the cloying smell that stick on the top of your mouth.Does any of these 3 cent have the same character?And what about Animale?Is it better than A*men?

    Beacuse i wish that A*men would be more like the drydown after *4-5hours.Subttle chocolate.But long lasting

    come to think of it.I dont like fragrances that are cloying.Might be the possible asthma that runs in my family :'(.Like the opening notes of Chrome, it makes my cough.

    Rouge is perfect in my opinnion.Round and soft.
