    Question Maison Francis Kurkdjian - Amyris Homme (2012)

    How do you guys feel about this one? I noticed this one gets a lot of mixed reviews online. I've had a tester strip in my crib for days. It smells good; pretty seductive. But I wonder if it could be cloying and it seems a bit feminine.

    It's the safest fragrance from his line. I know safe gets bashed online but its got an amazing tonka drydown. My knock on this is that there's very little citrus up top like advertised in the note breakdown. It's a woody/iris. My wife likes it, and I get compliments with it when I reach for it. Problem is, I rarely reach for it. It's one of those fragrances you almost forget you own
    Seasonal rotation:

    Santal Imperial
    Ambre Topkapi
    Rose 31
    Green Irish Tweed
    Original Santal
    Prada Amber PH

    An awesome scent. To me it comes across as a fresh fragrance with a backbone.

    I just sampled it today. I thought it was really good. But I understand exactly what people mean when they say it smells familiar, or like a mainstream designer, because it kind of does.

    I own and love it and yes a lot of BNers will complain is "familiar" or "boring" but not everything has to smell like wet hay in a old barnyard to be considered a good niche fragrance....I love it and get many compliments when I wear it. But then again, I LIKE "familiar", great smelling niche scents....I give it two nostrils way up !

    I expected a bit more from MFK and honestly am sllightly disappointed of Amyris Homme. It was just nice and that's all. For spicy, fresh genre, I won't buy Amyris Homme again once my bottle runs out but would buy any within the Guerlain Homme line again for a fraction of the cost.
