    Default Best somewhat masculine floral musk?

    I was smelling a few things today(Rykiel Homme, Eau de Cartier) and realized I love citrus floral musks for summer. I was wondering what your guys fave was? I don't want anything wussy and weak like Armani Mania, I want some power behind it like those two.

    Burberry Touch is a powerful woody floral musk.
    Carolina Herrera too, with added clove.
    A search on Osmoz gives 38 suggestions in french, but 31 in english.
    What's the bug there?

    Trumpers GFT is what you seek................. Very low wussy factor. Extremely clean yet deep............. Just amazing. I'd intended to purchase some eventually. Just dropped the ball.

    Lucky You - green with cotton flower and a durable musk. Surprisingly long duration. I have mistaken Eternity for this on other fellows.

    Dunhill Man (2003) ... and will make you smell like $1m. Completely masculine and relaxed. I think I will make it SOTD tomorrow.

    I'm probably the only freakazoid not to like LV Musk ... too sweet on me.

    If you want rose - try Hammam Bouquet, if the accent is in the musk, try LV Musk, if you need something a bit woody, try Black Code, and I agree that Burberry Touch packs a punch and isn't half bad...

    For white musk - try CSP Musc Alize, my hands down favorite white musk scent...

    If your adventurous, wander over to the women's counter and try Narciso Rodriguez - amazing stuff!

    Chopard Casran is a good powdery Oriental...

    I'm just blithering...

    Dia and silver is my top, all out mature, flower, masculing, king of the mountain scent.

    If you want an outstanding musk, go for Khiel's Musk, Paul G. will back me up on this!

    I'll back you up on this as well...my second favorite, trailing only the seminally animalic Serge Luten's creation, MKK.

    Even though its classified as a "womens scent" christian diors Pure Poison is an awesome floral musky scent. Actually, when i first smelled it i thought it smelled like something that belonged in the mens fragrance department NOT the womens.

    Yes!!! I agree with you! Nobody ever mentioned it here, but I always thought it would work for a man.

    Two come to mind that are heady in florals for a mens scent but pull it off well...they are

    Givenchy's Insence and Bean's Gray Flannel.

    HB is an excellent suggestion!

    And ironmics, if you are truly serious about a non-wussyweak male floral musk with power behind it -- be sure to try Iquitos by Alain Delon! It's discontinued but still available, usually at a reasonable pricing.

    You might hate it, so try first!

    For summer, Rykiel Grey seems to be the best with its fruity top that leads to a musky drydown. Soon to be my next acquisition actually.
    Helmut Lang EDP has been mentioned as has Burberry Touch, both rather potent pure musky fragrances which is suited for evening use IMO. Otherwise, for a cheap one, try Jovan white musk or Body Shop's White Musk.
