    The original is a very nice scent, alas not for me. Perhaps this one will do for me.

    By the way (I dont't want to open a new thread): there is a certain 'Monsieur Body Spray' in the database as a Gaultier men's frag of this year. I don't find anything about it on the net. Does anybody know anything about it?

    I Like Flear du Male but at times find it overpowering.
    Hope I find Cologne versionmore wearable. And cheaper.

    To be flanked by another Fleur - so soon

    Normally that's done when the sales of an original begin to drop. Although as exceptional as the Big Mâle, this one may either flop or take longer than expected to become a success. Even within BN I read more negative than positive comments about it. It's obviously either too floral or too powerful for quite a few men here. I enjoy that tremendously for the half hour this lasts! From then on this fragrance is quite well behaved, balmy and woody. Nobody around seems to notice anything beyond normal. If too loud - is Eau de Merveilles or the Dragon's Kiss whispering? More guys seem to love those two.
    M7 Fresh is perhaps still more popular than M7. Bad luck, because nobody was familiar with oudh until Montale started really big in 2006 ! Kouros had a lot of flankers in 25 years. But it was quite capable to stand on it's own for the first five years !

    i think fleur will be a slow build, but to me it stands (perhaps with gaultier2) as the best example of fragrance to come out of that house.

    Thank you, friend So it's not for me.

    I think that FdM is a relatively challenging scent - so I would not expect it to be as popular as Le Mâle ever. You could argue that it is an extension of that product, though hard to say exactly.

    Fleur de Male has been a complete sales disaster
    Sometimes one finds an antique vial which remembers,
    Whence gushes forth a living soul returned to life

    Although to each their own, I just can't see how anyone could endear Fleur du Male. It is one of the most racid fragrances I have smelled. That being said, I won't be out looking to try the colonge version.

    Saturday I sprayed it on paper - that is the paper was saturated for me to be able to smell it loooong. I wasn't brave enough to have it on myself - and needed my arms for the new Allure and Polo Exlorer.
    Now I've taken it from my pocket and can't stop sniffing. Just what I thought previously: it's an amazing scent. Not as feminine now as it is at the beginnings. Truly great.
    --------------------------------------
    I was dead sure that I have already used a scent which has overall a very similar effect as Fleur du Male - and now I realized: The Dreamer. And I haven't read comments stating -and myself never though- that Dreamer would be feminine. Strange that I myself, mainly based upon the initial blast, yet do regard FdM rather feminine.
    The play of the senses, that's what makes this hobby so interesting
