    Default Le Professional. M.Micallef.

    I received a sample of this today. Remindes me a bit of the old Paco Rabanne Sport, or a more complex refined Paco Rabanne Homme. What do you guys think of this one?

    Bumping again, curious about this one. I liked Paco Sport but its longevity is just not good

    Have all four in the G. Nejman series. They're all very good IMO. Le Professional is nice and spicy with vetiver, leather, patchouli and moss at the base and geranium and orange in the heart.

    I found this a bit odd; a soapy, herbal, sweetish leather, with an 80's vibe. Surprising (& not in a good way as far as I'm concerned) for a 2009 release.

    Hm Paco Sport doesn't have leather, so I'm surprised. Thanks for your input guys

    Smells like a christmas candle I had as a kid - not a typical christmas candle at all. In fact, I've never found a candle that smelled just like the one I had as a youth. Anyhow, there's a strong myrtle note in this, some cinnamon I think, maybe bay? A fresh, minty geranium.. in this it shares some similarities with Geranium Pour Monsieur. Linear, but very enjoyable.

    I've not tried Paco Sport but don't find it that close to Paco Rabanne at all. Le Seducteur is closer to Paco Rabanne.

    Oh, good! SOS, I guess that means you got the sample pack I sent (hoping so); I thought it was lost in the mail.

    I like it very much, but happen to like X-mas candles. It's not so X-mas-y obscene as Amouage Opus II or V, but it's still
    a good dose of bay laurel and piney spice.
    I do, however, find it wearable; I even considered buying it for my father for X-mas, since it has a real old-school cologne charm. I actually think of it more as a slightly 'failed' freshy-spice fougere, like Amouage Silver Cologne (or even Invasion Barbare), but not nearly as 'smooth' or elegant as those two, Anyway, I thought about it for my dad because I was IN LOVE with Le Seducteur and Emir from Nejman's line, but my dad hates oud and I felt 'funny' about giving him something called "Seducer". But I gave him the Le Seducteur nonetheless.
    And I think LS one is is the stand out best of the group; if you could only get or sample one Nejman, it really should be LS.

    LP is somehow dastardly, if competent. And Le Sportif is downright BAD.
