    A girl sprayed my bottle into the air once to smell it. This was her reaction "This is supposed to be for men? Oh hell no".

    I like this alot but obviously not a chick magnet type.

    I am testing 2nd time FDM right now. I used just 2 sprays on chest in morning. Now, 13 hours later its still alive.
    Sillage wasnt as strong as I expected (its weaker than Le Male IMO) but longetivity is great. For first few hours it was too synthetic (same as Le Male) but later it became quite enjoyable. Something makes it sweet and bit fresh altogether. I can see a handsome metro guy in white shirt and trousers wearing it well, maybe even in summer on beach.

    I may give it another shot tomorrow, so far its 3/5 stars to me that means quite enjoyable but not bottleworthy yet. I like Le Male better because its sweeter thanks to my favourite vanilla and more masculine.

    Also I compared FDM with Gaultier 2 both on skin and paper. Gaultier 2 is way stronger, with better longetivity (FDM faded away from test strip in 1 day, gaultier 2 is there for 4 days and still strong). Gaultier 2 would be nice on super sexy black haired girl in latex but there is no chance I would wear it because if FDM is feminine (and I think it is not), then G2 is super feminine. Oh, BTW I dont see any connection between Gaultier 2 and Pi as many mentioned. They are completely different kind of sweetness to my nose.

    Im looking forward to trying this one out but havent seen it any stores locally. If it's any more powdery, than say Brit, Im not going to like it.

    Fleur du Male....

    Ow ow ow. I normally take my time to carefully smell the paper strip in a shop.

    But with this stuff, I had a very strong reaction.
    After smelling it for 2 seconds (literally), I threw it away while swearing badly. It was kind of embarassing. I felt like it raped my nose. (please, don't be terribly offended, this is just how i feel about it) Really bad stuff.

    I love FdM. Smells sweet, yes, but not feminine, IMO. The emerging woods balance the powdery accords quite well. Definitely not for the fragrance-shy.

    I agree. I mean, it's definitely floral but it doesn't scream "WOMAN'S FRAGRANCE" to me. I just get orange blossom and the original Le Male drydown.

    +1 for this FDM fan. It's the only predominantly floral scent in my collection I think.
    Strong floral opening, warm powdery base - for a man. Unusual in today's market, which is why I like it too.
    I don't have any qualms wearing it out in public (as long as I'm easy on the trigger), I guess I'm part of the non-shy fragrance types

    I sprayed some on my dad before he left the house. When he came back home he was furious! "You had me smelling like a woman all goddamn day!", he said. A week later, I left the house 15 minutes after spraying and met him 2 blocks away. He said "whatever you're wearing smells great!". He's confused but I know I love it!

    It's not my favorite floral, but it smells good. Fleur du Male is great for my age.

    I like Amouage Ciel very much, and i Think i have to test out F-D-Male again soon. Do you think it`s great for night-clubs/disco etc?

    I find it bizarre and shocking and not in a well executed, intriguing Kouros sort of way.

    What did your dad say after he found out what it was? Did he want to try it again after smelling it on you?

    I have nearly finished a bottle of this. The only problem I have is that over time the copious amounts of not-so-good quality coumarin and complementary woody notes in the base can make you feel sick. Apart from that the woody petit-grain infused orange blossom accord works well.

    Wasn't too dirty I would really enjoy it but, the dirty musk is just too much for me to really enjoy the scent

    I wore sample of FDM maybe 6 times and I like it but I still prefer Le Male over this that is way more masculine. It is worth small decant but not full bottle IMHO. Something in FDM makes it intriguing but also disgusting. I like to wear it for myself but I'd not feel confident to wear it around others. Anyway its not that bad as I thought after reading reviews. It has its own magic.

    This is why this one is one of my favorites. It's definitely a love or hate one I would say. There's a woman in my office that absolutely adores the scent on me and kept sniffing me one day. So you never know what people will hate or like. And after that, I feel confident that I can wear FdM anywhere. Except around my wife, she hates it.

    Love the opening. For me it's always been the clearest display of decay/decadence. Can't exactly explain why. maybe because I smell flowers but it's somehow clear that something's happened to these flowers, like they're rotting or poisonous. Impressive. No feminine perfume has ever given me this impression.

    Yet, I'm always slightly disappointed when the drydown shows his original Le Male face. Maybe it's not that close but once I start to think of the resemblance it's getting more and more obvious because Le Male's been everywhere for years. Personally I'd prefer Le Cologne version as it goes in a different direction, although "fresher".

    One final thought about Fleur de Male: your partner(s) should like it, otherwise it just doesn't make sense. This is just the opposite of office scent. In a tête-à-tête situation it could create very special moments, but it could also spoil everything, I mean badly. Powerful stuff.
