    L'Air du Desert Marocain has sort of a head-turning uniqueness to it. Smokey dry cedar and spices balanced by a not too sweet vanilla/amber. It hasn't turned any heads for me, but maybe for you.

    One thing I've learned is that skin chemistry is very important. So, for one person a frag can be a "head turner" and the heads that are turning are thinking, "wow, that smells great," while on another person, those heads are thinking, "that guy smells like an overflowing septic tank." Be careful. Don't blind buy unless you've put a lot of research into it. Sample first if possible, especially if it's not super cheap.

    I know I'm getting boring but Desir by Rochas attracts comments from straight men as well as women when I wear it - all of them positive.

    Chanel Antaeus or Rochas Macassar fit the bill for me. Both have deep aroma and good sillage.

    With Gucci Envy, Ungaro III, Rive Gauche one could hardly go wrong

    Gucci Envy is currently one of perfumes i use now and then, so i agree with you Ken,
    very very noticable smell ..
    Is there anything else similiar ? Not citrus based and light, but heavy, spicy that last long, and yet again fresh ?
    I tested ferre's Lui for man few days ago, and i must say that i could easily buy that... I am just testing snifing around little more to see if i'll spot something better....
    Can you recomend me something like that ?
    Also, here where i live,Croatia, it's hard(impossible to be 100%correct) ti find somethig to sniff that is not versace,armani, gucci,ysl,several guerlains, and few others....
    Nothing like creeds,tauers, burbery's,trusardi , yatagan, and so on and so on.... oh, third man also... ,so caron's stuff is not here also , when i ask for all of those and many many other perfumes that are here so much discused, girls at the shop just make question-like face and say hmmm... we don't have that....
    Where can i try this stuff, anyone have some testing samples ? Something used and for sale for few bucks ....

    and also (but not limited to):

    Amber Sultan
    Ungaro III
    M7
    kouros
    Van Cleef & Arpels pour Homme

    If you can, sample as much as you can. Ultimately, your nose will tell you which frags will turn your own head and others.

    If L'Occitane could have frozen the topnotes of Eax Des Bavx, and pull back on the vanilla, it would fit your criteria I think.
