OK OK OK, I got this one today and I have to say, it smells INSANE....if something can smell that way. Its Kingdom by Alexander McQueen. Anyone who has ever tried it knows what I am saying. Just wondering what other scents out there smell this way, or are perhaps "mis-understood."
Ditto on that.Originally Posted by milamber
Also, Kouros, but I know I might start up a controversy with this one.
I think that C&S#88 smells pretty crazy.
I like it, but it definitely smells "different", to say the least
Wow! These are good ones so far!
I'm going with Czech and Speake Frankinscense and Myrhh
EnvYuS My Wardrobe
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'd never heard of it until now and after reading the reviews on it..................not sure if I ever want to smell it................. ! Thanks for the warning DT
Superstition during the Middle Ages cited that Cumin kept chickens and lovers from wandering. It was also believed that a happy life awaited the bride and groom who carried Cumin Seed throughout the wedding ceremony.

Etro Messe de Minuit - old castles?
CdG Odeur 53 - electronics?
Cumming - rubber and moss?
McQueen's Kingdom is pretty 'oridinary' by McQueen's standard! If you are familiar with his fashion design, you would expect much more craziness!
to me, M7 smells absolutely nuts. I can't make heads or tails of it. Sometimes all I smell is raspberry liquor, other times it smells like those mentol/camphor creams you used to put on your chest when you had a cold. And then, every blue moon, it smells kind of fantastic.
Yes, I certainly do.Originally Posted by Daddy_Thrax
These are pretty Cuh-RAZY!!
- Etro Messe de Minuit
- L'Artisan Parfumeur Dzing!
Funny thread guys. While I don't dislike these frags like Gucci PH, Azzaro Visit and Escada Magnetism -- I just don't like the pencil shaving note in them. I don't understand that particular note. Help me out, am I Cuh - RAZY?
Joop! Homme right out of the bottle, just nuts.
Davidoff's Relax smells cuh-RAZY!!, but in a good way...what where they smokin' when they thought, "Let's mix marshmallows and leather." ????
keepin' it musky
CdG's Odeur 71 [also 53 to a lesser extent] and their Synthetic series have got to be placed in the 'Cuh-RAZY or Innuh-SANE' Universal Fragrance Venn Diagram section.
Dzing! too, if remarks are anything to go by [I've not tried it myself yet].
Ummm...surprised no one has yet mentioned PIGUET BANDIT. Also, one should consider CARON YATAGAN, KOUROS...Oooh...let's not forget GUERLAIN JICKY, SERGE LUTENS MUSCS KOUBLAI KHAN, MONTAL OUD CUIR D'ARABIE, L'EAU BLEUE D'ISSEY, SANTA MARIA NOVELLA NOSTALIGA, BVLGARI BLACK DIPTYQUE L'AUTRE, MPG ROUTE DU VETIVER and ummmm...Oh dear God...how could I almost forget my very FAVORITE all time yummy stinky SANTA MARIA NOVELLA "ACQUA DI CUBA!".
I think Bandit is a "schizo" type of fragrance. Rubber, carnations, sweat, civet funk and some cigarette ashes. That's pretty f-cked up. I love it for those dark, rainy winter days.
Can Bandit be worn by men? I keep seeing it suggested in the men's forum.
Ahh, the smells of the trailer park...Originally Posted by stevolution
