    I came back to Sephora the second time and tried the same one with same result: It smelled aweful and this is the one, in black container:

    It didn't smell anything like chocolate at all. It smelled like piss to me. I am sorry, but could it be a "bad" bottle or what???? Next time, I will try Angel Men from a different place. Will update!

    It would still have to be Givenchy's Insensé Ultramarine.

    Don't ask. You really don't want to know--other that it has no incense, it's not marine, it's not aquatic and it smells as if a can of hairspray exploded inside a rapidly sinking submarine.

    But besides that, it's just terrific.

    Yuck!

    I wouldn't call them the worst, personally, but definitely the most overrated. The house reminds me of BPAL - churning out a ton of scents that all smell flat and with little refinement. They have the occasional gem but I don't see why they are so well respected around here. Besides, they sell for like $60usd over in the middle east - and that's after markup. Do you really think they are using much if any oud at all, much the less high quality oud? Real oud would have to be blended in fairly large amounts to be noticeable in their nuclear brews.

    A basenoter went to Paris a couple years ago and spoke with Pierre regarding whether or not real or synthetic oud was used in their perfumes. There's some long-debated-locked thread on the subject and it was concluded to contain real oud by word of mouth from Pierre and some reliable sources. Don't know if this holds any truth now.

    Though I agree, the line is rather weak, but there's still some gems hidden in all the trash. Crystal Flowers in the aromatic line is good. Black Aoud & Oud Cuir d'Arabie are at least worth investigating, and that Santal de Mysore Parfum (looking to try it) sounds gorgeous from description.

    I'm indifferent with the house.

    Well, they can use say, 1gram of oud in a 1000ml blend and say it contains real oud. I don't doubt that they use *some* real oud, but I really doubt that they don't bolster that with a synthetic agarwood accord, too.

    To me, the house proves that to many a scent's strength is indicative of its quality and I wholeheartedly disagree with that notion, often finding the most interesting and well blended scents to have lesser tenacity.

    It never claims to contain incense. JaimeB in his review mentioned: "The name, by the way, is French for "senseless," "foolish," "insane." In Vibert's: "OK all you English-only speakers, don’t go out and buy this thinking that it’s an incense fragrance. That would be “encens.”

    *sniff*


    Don't like Black XS (arrrgh headache alert!) and Kenneth Cole Black either.

    I , on the other hand , luv quite a few of the scents that have been mentioned on here. (I've owned when first released A*Men , Fahrenheit , Le Male , Kouros and Joop). ...
    And now own and adore M7, and pretty much enjoy Agarwood in all it's many varied "shades".
    Though I do agree that Montale, occasional gems aside, are far too overrated ! (Undeservingly so !)
    And even Secretions Magnifiques , which at very first sniff felt like an assault, I have grown to appreciate. And now think it has it's own unusual beauty. It also smells and develops very differently on different skins. (And each time I've sample it, I smell something different). ~ So I certainly rate it high on originality and creativity. (But it sure aint pretty though ! LOL)

    BUT there are two scents that try as I might to give them a chance, still remain totally offensive to my nose ... SL's Miel de Bois ... + ... C&S's Citrus Paradisi

    And of course "Calone" and I will never be friends ! (And all the mediocrity it's incorporated into)(LOL)

    Versace The Dreamer was a complete disaster on my skin.

    Luckily Amazon took it back as it was only sprayed about 2 or 3 times. I just had to eat the cost of shipping, which was far more enjoyable than the nightmare in a bottle known as The Dreamer.

    till this day , i smelled something less then 50 different scents, and i will choose Narcisso Rodriguez for him as a first guess.
    Sniffing that was horible experience . i almost forgot
    Givenchy Pi . You should sniff those two if you intend to have a nice cup of a headeche.
    Really bad fragnances, and i mean really bad.

    Bumping my own answer as I don't believe people think A*Men/Kouros/Pi are the worst ever.

    The putrid, vile excrement that eviscerated itself from the Drakkar nozzle resembled a dead bloated skunk's asshole stuffed with kraft singles, almost melted a hole in my hand. Should've spent the quarter on the camel hair french tickler instead.

    For me, it's Creed Royal Delight. It actually makes me heave. It's what I'd imagine a horse's anus infused with scotch tape to smell like.
