    Default Re: most masculine group of fragrances

    Probably Chypre; Yatagan, Polo Green, Aramis (not sure if this is Chypre tho) etc. Usually very green, with leather, castoreum, and other funky bits in the dry down.
    Looking for: Andy Tauer - L'air du Desert Morocain & Incense Extreme

    I consider Chypre, fougère and citrus to be very maculine categories.

    I use Michael Edwards' family categories to classify my collection.

    The most prominent families, for me, are:

    Woody Oriental
    Aromatic (Fougere)
    Dry Woods (Leather/Tobacco)
    Mossy Woods (Chypre)
    Woods

    These groups account for 83% of my wardrobe.

    I was thinking along these lines as well, especially the woods categories.

    As to actual frags, my most masculine is Carlo Corinto. I get a lot of leather from it, perhaps some incense, and nothing feminine or even light, such as a bit of citrus, though it's not arid. An oddball that you could call masculine is Cuba Black, which smells like clean ashes, if that makes any sense.

    Seasonality depends more upon the individual fragrance. Edwards' subdivides each of his families into Rich, Classical, Crisp and Fresh fragrances.
