    Default Ed Hardy Man - Niche like?

    I tried this one a few weeks ago along with many others, and it didn't really stand out, other than for an opening blast I didn't like all that much.

    Today I gave it a better testing all by itself on one hand. After that initial unpleasant opening, it quickly changed to something quite good. All day long it then reminded me of something very similar to a toned down version of Ambre Precieux (which I own).

    Lasting power was good for about 5 to 6 hours, which was okay but a bit below typical designer scent strength on me.

    To my nose, it's more akin to typical niche scents than to typical designer scents.

    Does anybody else have that impression?

    I quite like it on first sniff Renato. Actually thought it was very nice. I will give it a full testing now. Thanks for the heads up on this one.

    Yeah, I kind of liked it on first sniff too.

    It takes more chances than the average, rehashed designer fresh aquatic, so in that sense it stands out more.

    I think I'll revisit it very soon.

    I sent a sample of this to Docpsycho and I know he liked it, and for me it reminded me of Geir Ness (loosely) - but for something you can find at Macy's or Dillards etc., it's really something nice! I've used up my samples!

    I like EH..... it's got a subtle mint note that blends with leather notes. The quality is good as well.... I'm not sure it's radically different than the other designer fragrances that have been recently released, but it's definitely one of the best of the recent crop for sure. Tip - a 7.5ml mini is widely available on eBay if you don't want to make a $50 investment. I think I still have a bunch of carded samples if anyone wants to trade for them.

    Thanks for your feedback Guys.

    I'm pleased that I'm not the only one to notice something fairly different from what one would typically expect from designer scents.

    However, from the poor number of responses, I suspect that Ed Hardy Man has fallen off the radar of most people. Possibly because of the garish tattoo designs on the packaging. I know that while colouful, they did absolutely nothing for me, other than give me an initial impression of "cheap and showy".

    Other than it having a nice creamy base, there's nothing "niche" about it at all.

    If niche smells like nothing, then Ed Hardy is the "nichiest"

    I thought it was one of the worst designer releases of the year.

    Creamy? Are we talking about the same scent?
    I notice he's put two out this year, and I haven't smelled the second.

    Uhhmm - that means I spent 6 hours smelling nothing on my hand yesterday.
    I'm looking forward to the concentrated or extreme version of this experience!
