    well, i loved it...and this is comin from someone who likes florals on girls. but this one is unique. if you like the smell of Mogra (a variant of Jasmine) and if you appreciate scents like Kouros then this might be somethin unique in your collection.

    Thanks but there are a few frags I cannot stand for some reason (a common note?), and they are:
    Kouros
    Live Jazz
    Obsession men
    Le Male
    Ferre men 2007
    Thanks again.

    Also try Alamut by Lorenzo Villoresi. Although it's m,arketed towards women I firmly believe it's unisex. It's got that powdery vibe quite in the vein of FdM and quite a wonderfully done Rose.

    I also got lots of orange blossom; is it just me? Maybe I was mistaking jasmine for it.

    It's too much for me. But if you have a chance, do try the new La Cologne Fleur du Male. It's a new, fresher take of the idea, is much more wearable.

    I think it is worth buying if you like it, but definitely not a blind buy - you need to sample it. I think it is one of those really like it or really hate it polarizing fragrances.

    The first time I sampled it I thought "What in the hell is this awful scent?!". But there was something about it that made we want to keep trying it. So everytime I was in a store that carried it, I would try it. Eventually, I grew to like and appreciate Fleur du Male - and bought a bottle. I think the orange blossom is fantastic.

    It's orange blossom, and maybe even synthetic, but its wonderful (Kurkdjian) !
    The basenotes are a real extra.

    I enjoy FdM enormously.

    I can understand ones reservations, particularly being as it is a hardcore floral for men, but I like it very much. I've literally been astounded smelling it on other people in passing. In fact my wife and I once followed a chap in the frozen food aisle at the supermarket over Xmas until we could work out which amazing juice he was wearing

    i dunno what Orange blossom is, but we call this flower Mogra in india and its a type of jasmine and not Jasmine (incidently the ads too show this flower). and i can tell, the smell of Mogra is captured "Brilliantly" and precisely in this. hats off to perfumer who made this.

    If you want a good orange blossom, then look elsewhere. After the flowers fade, you're left with the old synthetic mess that is the drydown of Le Male. Its all a bit cheap and gaudy, you can do better!

    I find it sexy as hell. In fact, it's my SOTD.
