    Default Just blind bought B*men what should I expect?

    I found this for $15 for 50ml so I jumped on it. What should I expect to smell?
    I am getting excited! woohooo I love blind buying!

    Perhaps the Base of A*men without the burnt chocolate notes.
    Some of the pineyness reminded me of Polo but that was fleeting.
    It was some major longevity on me.
    Your nostrils, which will dilate immesurably in unspeakable contentment, in motionless ecstasy, will ask nothing better for space, for they will be full of fragrance, as if perfumes and incense; for they will be glutted with complete happiness, like angels who dwell in the peace and magnificence of pleasent heaven.
    (From Maldoror by Comte de Lautreamont)

    It's much better than A*Men!

    None of the cloying, diabetes inducing sweetness of A'Men.

    B*Men is dark, piny and spicy. It's still a gourmand, but way different than A*Men.

    The scent grows richer, he knows he must be near
    He finds a long passageway lit by chandelier
    Each step he takes, the perfumes change
    From familiar fragrance to flavours strange
    A magnificent chamber meets his eye

    i love it's top notes...but not what follows. mid to basenotes lacks any definition and is structured very poorly.

    btw, imho A*men is a masterpiece.

    I also have polo modern reserve and its piney. Is Bmen close to polo that owning both is a "waste".

    hahaha good thing you wrote those in small letters, looking over the directory A*men is the only fragrance with that much thumbs down.

    P.S. is bmen more for cold or hot days?

    They're not even close to being similar.

    B*men is a gourmand.

    Modern Reserve is a green fragrance.

    I can't see wearing it in warm weather. It's pretty heavy, in a good way.

    But your mileage may vary.

    Expect rhubarb, some fruits, a hint of coffee and a dash of spices. Oh and great scent power. It's very nice.

    Its complex and a little bit heavy for warm days. Absolutly recommend it for winter.
