    Default Re: Masculine but sweet - your best recommendations

    From the previous list, I absolutely second especially Burberry London and Zino Davidoff

    other frags to likely be considered for testing:

    Gucci Envy for Men, Rochas Man, Fahrenheit 32, Obsession Night by Calvin Klein, almost anything within the Versace Jeans range, Givenchy Very Irresistible, Azzaro Bright Visit, Solo Loewe- powerful, yet still somewhat safe and casual wear-type of sweetness

    Chanel Allure Homme, Dior Homme, M7 (these three remotely bordering the first category), Jaipur by Boucheron, Ungaro III, Endymion by Penhaligon's, Baldessarini Ambre, Givenchy Pi, the male version L'Instand de Guerlain, Cartier Declaration, also ultra classic Caron pour un Homme, Guerlain Mouchoir de Monsieur, oddly even the Blu Mediterraneo range by ADP, Esencia Loewe - a far more non-linear, quirky, artisanal, off-beat, experimental kind of sweetness, aptly masked by and/or mingled with some of the complete opposites of sweet fragrance notes

    This is great. Thank you, BN group! Lots of stuff in here I've never considered. That's what makes basenotes so great - opens us up to lots of new possibilities. Wouldn't have found a tenth of this without the group's advice. THANKS!

    New Haarlem by bond no 9. Please don't pass it by, it's an incredible gourmand.

    To be careful..I'd say go to www.theperfumecourt.com and sample them before...or unless they're available at your local chemist.

    It proves much more au fait and safe to do it this way..whereas buying outright, especially if wadded for cash..can be a nuesance.

    Oh, I also suggest you try Chanel Antaeus it is a very sweet frag and can easily be located at many pharmacies and many perfumeries!

    Good Luck!

    I totally agree, and was going to suggest Antaeus and Knize Ten for masculine sweetness!

    Antaeus sweet? Eeeehh....

  19. #49

    Default Re: Masculine but sweet - your best recommendations

    There's some sweetness to both Antaeus and Knize Ten; what I took to be all leather at first sniff for both turns out to be honied florals held in a leather glove, but Antaeus has the sage and thyme to balance the sweetness and Knize Ten has the petroleum accord. The sandalwood in both (coupled with the patchouli in Antaeus) make for woody-sweet (but not sugary or syrupy) drydowns.

    But then again I'm a total fanboy!
    I offer you perfume,
    More for its pleasure than for yours;

    Great suggestions. The only thing I would add is :
    - Parfumerie Generale Cadjmere
    + if you're going to TPC for samples, try Cartier's Les Heures du Parfum XIII La Treizieme Heure ..... nizzzzzeeeee.

    Also need to add Guerlain Moscou to this list

    Some that come to mind are Perry Ellis White, Anucci Gold, Gaultier 2, Fleur de Male and a few of the powdery sweet types would be Arpege Pour Homme, Pour Un Homme de Caron, and Lagerfeld.

    I must add my two signature fragrances, both in the eau de parfum formulations: Opium Pour Homme and Jaipur Pour Homme.
