    Wink Re: Most Exciting "Mainstream" Men's Scents

    If I had to pick one mainstream, exciting, men's scent it would be Caron's L' Anarchiste. While it's not my favorite by any means, it is exciting because it is bold, bizzare and un-commercial. No doubt it will be discontinued soon enough. I think that anyone interested in modern fragrances should experience it at least once. Blood in an ashtray.

    I would agree, but I do not know where you guys draw the line. Almost every cologne mentioned on this page 1 is far beyond mainstream in my books due to uniqueness, quality of ingredients, or both.

    I think "Pour Monsieur (1955)" is being referred to here. Both it and the more
    commonly available "Concentree" version are must-tries. Both are in my Top 10.

    I think you should not miss trying Gucci Pour Homme. I'll suggest Gucci Envy
    also, though some here think the very similar Floris Eau de Santal is actually better.
    I have the Santal, not the Envy, Floris is not a department store line.

    You might also find the YSL line worth exploring. I think Chanel's men's line is
    generally superior, but YSL has many scents worth sampling. Rive Gauche Pour
    Homme, Opium Pour Homme, M7, are some.

    The scents marketed by Aramis are commonly available and worth checking out too.

    I don't know about "exciting," but these are simply excellent:

    Acqua di Parma
    Agua de Sandalo, Vetiver hombre (Dominguez, common in Spain)
    Dunhill for Men (1934) (freshly discontinued)
    Cacharel pour homme
    anything by d'Orsay (I know, not necessarily, department store)
    Aigner No. 2 (a drugstore frag in Germany now)
    Envy for Men
    L'Eau Bleue d'Issey
    L'Occitane Vetyver
    Identité pour homme (René Lezard, Germany - nothing special here)
    Royall Spice
    My Wardrobe
    II est de forts parfums pour qui toute matière/Est poreuse. On dirait qu'ils pénètrent le verre.

    As always, disregard most of what I say. It's not worth your heart health to actually worry about what a 23 year old guy from Kansas thinks. Even if he is really ridiculously good looking.

    Personally I usually find designer trumps niche, and mass market trumps niche on occasion too.

    The designer/mass markets which seem to break the mold for me are:
    English Leather
    Agua Brava
    The Dreamer (with my usual disclaimer: "Even though I think it is disgusting")
    The Baron

    Ayala dear, you'll find a lot of samples for men at On their home page click on miniatures and samples are listed there.
    I would love to read a good noses reviews of mens scents on the blogs as well as here.
    Salvador Dali's pour Homme come up? Laguna? Aqua Verde? LeRoy Soleil? all surprisingly good.
