    Givenchy Insensé is probably the best floral for men (magnolia, muguet, jasmine etc...) and pretty hard to find too. I fortunately own a bottle but I'd really like Givenchy to reissue it.
    Others that I like are:
    Ungaro III - muguet
    Penhaligon's Opus 1870 - rose
    Penhaligon's Quercus - muguet
    Eau d'Italie Paestum Rose - rose
    Eau d'Italie Magnolia Romana - magnolia
    Dior Homme - iris
    Acqua di Parma Colonia Assoluta - rose
    212 man - gardenia
    L'homme de coeur - iris
    Anvers 2 - mimosa
    YSL Jazz - carnation

    Creed GIT - violet/orris
    Grey Flannel - violet
    Iris Bleu Gris - orris
    Kenneth Cole Black - I like the lotus note in this, it's actually fairly accurate (though 'cleaned up' quite a bit). Unfortunately it gets overwhelmed with a soapy note all too soon. Can't say I really like the fragrance that much but it's the only one I've picked up lotus in. (any others I should be on the lookout for for a good lotus note?)
    Adp Colonia - rose

    I assume by floral you mean scents whose character is predominantly floral, and not the ones that might have some floral elements in them. If thats the case, then:

    I would suggest that a majority of the consensually great perfumes for men have florals in them. In classic compositions they are necessary to balance off the pungency of dry herbs or leather notes or build bridges to sweet spice or wood notes. Herbals without floral notes easily become acrid.
    Anyway, I can second or third (etc.) many of those named:

    C&S No. 88 (dominant rose) & Cuba (background rose, but important), Neroli
    Pehaligon's Hamma Bouquet (rose, jasmin)
    Patou pour homme (geranium, jasmin)
    Dukes of Pall Mall Cotswold (white florals)
    AdP Colonia (rose, ylang)
    Knize Ten (geranium, rose, orris)
    R de Capucci (rose, jasmin)
    TDC Bois d'Iris...

    Almost all great men's fragrances (even the most masculine) have a solid floral component in the heart notes: rose, jasmine, geranium, iris, carnation, muguet, etc

    I'm throwing my only knowledgeable votes to TDC Bois d'Iris (iris) and Un Parfum des Sens et Bois (violet, I think). But I've heard so many good things about Givenchy Incensé, I just have to try it now.

    Default Re: Your favorite male scents with florals in them...

    To be honest, my favourite floral at the moment has only recently been more openly sold with men in mind.

    The fragrance I refer to is Juliet Has A Gun's Lady Vengeance. This was initially marketed as the name suggests towards women. Apparently, according to my friends in the niche dept in Selfridges, the company is telling SA's to market towards men anyway, because women assume it's for men,

    I love the fragrance it's a rich patchouli and rose EDP with woody notes in it and it smells fantastic on a male skin.

    Amouage Reflection for Man
    Perfume appeals to my nose the way music appeals to my ears, exquisite food to my taste buds, photography to my eyes, and great loving from my man to my sense of touch.

    I can safely conclude, then, that PERFUME IS ART in its purest form.

    As an artist, I therefore have a responsibility to buy as much perfume as I can. You know, to learn about art and all.

    Gucci Pour Homme II. MMMmmmmmm... violet leaf.

    Fahrenheit. MMMmmmmmm... gasoline and violet leaf.

    Fahrenheit 32. Lots of MMmmmmmmm... but I can't wear it. I'd need it to have a more masculine side for me to be able to wear it. It smells more like the woman I'd want to date than the man I want to be.

    Versace Pour Homme, but I have trouble wearing it. This is a close call for me, but there's something sharp in the scent that ultimately kills it for me, which is a shame because, otherwise, I really enjoy it.
