    Default NEW: DKNY Men (not to be confused with the old one).

    Looks like this one slipped under our noses.

    Anyway, I just saw this on the Sephora website... a new fragrance from DKNY called DKNY Men. This one isn't in the skyscraper bottle... it's in a Flatiron Building-shaped bottle (minus the Sprint sign). And it has new juice, plus the notes sound interesting for a change (an aromatic woody scent).

    I assume this means that the old DKNY Men (which hasn't been sold in US stores for eons) is discontinued?

    The notes sound really nice on this one. I am going to sample it for sure. It is now available @ sephora.com, but maybe not in the brick and mortar stores yet. Love the bottle too.

    I agree. I like the notes and the bottle. Maybe I'll find some soon.

    Tested this one at macy's and its no where near as innovative as the first one. the first one was awesome . This new one blows . Smells just like everything else out there. Pass

    i was in selfidges today and this was there, first day and it had all its women offering samples and all the rest. i spray it on my wrist and think, ralph lauren romance silver gone bad. honestly, this is bland,boring stuff and i would definetly, like blacklibran1, pass on this one. on a better note, i smelt joop thrill today for the 1st time and its amazing.

    I found it to smell like the new Brooks Brothers New York for men but with a little more spice.

    Nothing new or modern kind of dated if you ask me.

    It can be found at Macys

    I knew it would be too much to think that this would be anything worth trying. How can these companies keep putting products like these out into the market? They must have a very high mark-up!

    I never heard of re-using the name of a prior discontinued fragrance to create a totally diffrent concept fragrance....

    Aramis / Estee Lauder must be hurting -

    Just read Lauder's financials from last quarter... fragrance was the weakest link due to all the competitive pressures.

    It's really good and I like it a lot. It has a strange chemical brashness to it at first but the drydown is lovely. Dior Homme-ish powderiness with a woody-amber base. The original just stayed chemical for me.

    A little confused here. According to the Fragrance Directory "DK Men" is the same as "Fuel For Men". Is the one we're talking about a totally different fragrance?

    It is not DK Men which is part of the Donna Karen Men's Line

    This is DKNY which is her Donna Karen New York line which is a hip urban clothing line for men and women based on the Manhattan scene (I would think)

    for me, Infusion D'Homme is the sport version of this

    I actually REALLY like this one. Very masculine soapy smell with a little bit of a bulgari aqua twist to it.

    I like it too. More masculine and mature than most things at the Macys counter for sure.

    On first sampling I detested this, but I'm going to give this another try to work tomorrow.
    I thought it smelled sour and synthetic.
    I will report in 2 days what I thought about it on 2nd wearing.

    I really like it. It is much of an improvement over the old DKNY Men, plus a hugely better bottle as well. I have bought a bottle of this and would likely replace it whenever it runs out. Good stuff! Smart move by DKNY to rebrand this.

    what about the smell ?? is really aquatic ?

    Well, finally i tried it last saturday. To me, is a nostalgic smell, soft, subtle, magnetic and something in the memory to be in somekind of deja vu aroma.. more than a fresh-woody category, i find a dusty-floral smell in some watery-cold atmosphere.

    I have just come to believe that SirSlarty is a Estee Lauder agent and his brain washing techniques which he was taught were used successfully against basenote members.
