    there!
    -i don't care if it won a fifi award!-
    I was looking for threads that mentioned Chaz and found this one.

    This topic seems more than appropriate - Chaz would feel very comfortable hanging around with the other guys mentioned here.

    I just read everso's description of CdG Garage... and it sounds like it fits the description of a macho scent that would illict "What the F***s that?" from women.

    From your list, Mario, I voted for Quorum all the way. Muy macho. I contemplated Salvador Dali for a moment, then decided it's more "romantic, eccentric, brooding artist" ( C'est moi!) than it is macho.

    Quorum is a wild choice when the moon is full. Really.

    I'm surprised there isn't more votes for Smalto- dark, smoky, but somehow clean yet powerful. Great stuff, but I don't think I'm manly enough to pull it off.

    OOOOH, Yatagan has a special place in my heart for this sort of thing. I think I just figured out my SOTD tomorrow! LOL

    Along with Polo, Chaps, and Monogram, I'd vote for Tiffanys for Men.

    Quorum out of the ones I've tried, with a nod to Yatagan and Francesco Smalto. If I was going to a shit-hole bar in a leather jacket, dirty white tee and oil-stained jeans, Quorum would be the go-to scent.

    I voted for Yatagan, but the most macho fragrance I own would have to be...

    Comme des Garcons GARAGE.

    There is no fragrance that could spell MANLY MAN more than this. Strangely, I find it's cousin TAR to be quite wearable by the right woman (not my wife). And its cleaned up sister, Bulgari Black, is certainly very unisex.

    Another vote for Yatagan. Smells like a sweaty barbarian hiding in a bush.

    Default Re: Who is more macho? The anti-frags

    You guys have driven me to some of my much neglected 'filthy' juices, with Yatagan on my overgrown chest, Quorum on a bushy arm and Smalto on my hirsute back (joke!). I said I've been pining for Polo Green for months now, but haven't given in to the degenerate urge...yet. I used to love its drydown to be honest, but it seems so be such an anachronism these days.

    I don' think enough people have smelled Jacomo de Jacomo or it would have had more votes!

    I copped a bottle of Leonard pour homme a while back and after spraying and allowing it to dry I found I smelled something very familiar. It was food. Not just any food I realized after several tests, it was a 12" Blimpie's Best, double meat and cheese, the works, no mayo, hot chili peppers si!

    Leonard of course is a fine chypre which is discontinued but I'll bet that the perfumeur visited the states. Or is the a Blimpie base in France.

    Vintage Tabarome and Salvador Dali PH are the most macho scents that I've ever encountered in my life. Aramis is macho too but in a bad way IMO.

    Sloan, those are very nice Yatagans! I haven't seen the black plastic dome-topped one, but I've got PuH in that style of bottle.
    That girl, that bottle, that mattress and me.

    I think Givenchy Gentleman is as Macho as a perfume can be.

    As much as I like Vintage Tabarome, Hermes Bel Ami, Bois Du Portugal...
    ...they're not subtle/quiet enough to qualify anti-frag
    I'll pick Tuscany's drydown if I had to wear a macho ANTI-FRAG.
    All the rest have too much fragrance to be anti-frag.

    Thanks, I am told that the one in the dome cap contains the original formulation as Caron released in 1976. Unsure about the year of the second bottle but both smell and wear quite different from the recent formulation. Rich, complex and blended to perfection.

    Not sure macho is what these are as I love three on the list and am about as macho as Mr. Rogers. Sub in Pee Wee Herman if Mr. Rogers is an unknown quantity.

    The Quorum of ten years ago elicited lots of "Ugggh"s when women smelled it on my hand - I would never have worn it in the privacy of my own home, much less around poor females.

    But when sprayed from the fresh new bottles being sold now, it elicits a "that's interesting" when women smell it on my hand.

    Quorum has been neutered - for the better I think.

    The mantle which it previously occupied now passes to Grey Flannel, as far as I'm concerned.

    I've seen too many women buy Aramis for their man, for it to be an Uggh scent.
