    Default Holy shit: Bijan For Men is a nuclear explosion!

    I had the pleasure/misfortune of trying this one today. Holy batman, it is POTENT. I had to roll down my car window in freezing weather, and was embarrassed to be at the store, wondering if anyone is suffering from my nuclear smell.

    Interestingly, this scent is totally in contrast with all the other modern Bijan scents I have tried, including Black, VIP, and Nude, which are very discreet and nothing like this Monster!

    It's only the top notes. After half an hour or so it's quite tame, though probably not for the aquatic guys even then.

    Yes indeed, Bijan Man has unrelenting power, and must NEVER be overapplied. Four spritzes max for me. It's a true blue macho 80s powerhouse for sure, and quite unique. I can think of few if any fragrances that smell like it.

    Bijan was one of the first powerscents I ever owned - I bought my first bottle back in 1994 when I first got into fragrances. I used to way overapply it, and within a couple of months I learned to hate it. It took a good 15 years until I rekindled my interest in this bomb, and I've since learned how to wear it properly. I now like it a lot.

    Any fragrance that should not be worn in public, should be worn in public.

    I would only use one spray, just above the navel.

    I remember seeing full page ads in Andy Warhol's Interview for Bijan handguns, back in the day (google it). Is it any wonder that Bijan's older fragrances are over the top?

    Work is 2 max for me -- and only if they're both under clothes. Out on the town is four: three under clothes and one on the back of the neck.

    Bijan is not a toy!

    And, yes, all the flankers are much tamer. I like them all, but they pale in comparison to the power of the master.

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    very powerful fragrance. alot of important people wear it (presidents, actors, ect.) becuase bijan suits are one of the most exclusive selections in the world.

    Being persian, i grew up smelling this, as pretty much every persian man 45 and over rocked this.

    This, along with Ralph Lauren Safari, are my dads fragrances

    This is the only fragrance I've come across that can fry your brain just by smelling the cap.

    I used to think it was the worst fragrance ever until I smelled Montale Boise Vanille.

    Hey!!!

    Boise Vanille is awesome. When i received my Black Oud, they came with a portfolio of other montale fragrances, and some papers with perfumes applied on then. Boisee Vanille is one of the best that came from that.

    The worst is Aoud Leather, OMG i felt smoked!

    I haven't come across any scent that is truly similar. Everything but the kitchen sink is in this one and the patchouli has roid rage.

    Has anyone ever tried Bijan Light for men? I don't see it in the Basenotes directory.

    Wait...n00b question here...which Bijan is "Bijan for Men"? There's black, classic, nude and so on, but no fragrance that says "Bijan for Men" verbatim.

    It could have been great but it's a little hard, synthetic and cologney. Usually due to cheap ingredients.

    I wear it occasionally but I usually just spray it in the air to get a whiff. It's a little cheap.

    They had the right idea, though.
