    Smelled it at the Lafayette mall, not bad actually. Horrible bottle and name though...

    If you like the smell of gunpowder, you will love a very special scent called Lepanto made by a tiny perfumery in Venice called Speziaria di Venezia.

    Sexual innuendo is a hard topic to stay on top of. As a humor tool, it stands erect in the English language. While there are no hard and fast rules as to what constitutes sexual innuendo, many people have mass-debated over the ins-and-outs of the topic. To understand sexual innuendo, one must take a long hard look at the subject matter, because the most common problem with sexual innuendo is the recipient being unable to wrap their hands around the intended meaning.

    Can anyone who is currently in possession of this fragrance and has the box or can confirm from the bottle if this is made in France or Italy? Thanks.

    I think it's great! I never gave it a chance because of that controversial bottle. But I got a sample of this from a swap and I was completely blown away, and then picked up a bottle immediately after that. It's almost like an extremely spicy version of Le Male, the top notes hit you very hard with all kinds of spices, but dries down to a sweet oriental akin to Le Male. Le Male with balls you say (or Le Male with a bigger package)? Hell yeah! And the performance is really outstanding! And that bottle would look really interesting on any dresser, a good conversation starter when you invite your date into your room. Or when your date asks you "wow you smell really good, what's that?", just show her the bottle and the rest will be history.
