    Default Need a Big, Bold Suggestion

    I'd like to add a big, bold frag to my 'drobe. I already own things like Black Aoud, Vintage Tabarome, Aramis and Riverside Drive.

    Is there anything out there that also has that heavy duty masculine vibe, but that may also be wearable as we head into Spring?

    Thanks.

    If you like Black Aoud, a recent acquisition of mine, Oud Cuir D'Arabie, might be up your alley too. Think stark, dry, oud-leather-rose, somewhat related but quite different to the heavier, sweeter patchouli-rose of Black Aoud. It is extremely dry and bold, and kind of transparent on some level, too, so I'd have no trouble wearing this in hot weather. Unlike Black Aoud, there is no trace of oriental heaviness or that certain animalic, sweaty quality that makes me avoid patchouli-laden fragrances in the warm. To my nose, it is, if anything, considerably "butcher" than Black Aoud, if femininity is marked by sweetness and softness in a fragrance.

    Edit: I am a dork, and forgot to check your wardrobe before recommending this! Sorry.

    VC&A Pour Homme mows people down.

    Antaeus,Versace L'Homme pretty potent masculine stuff.

    I like your wardrobe. One of these should be in there.

    You have many of my favorites in your wardrobe already but I don't think I see Kouros or Montana. I don't know about warmer weather though...

    No matter how much you read - always so much more to learn. I have not tried any of these. Great suggestions - keep 'em coming!

    Perhaps Chanel pour Monsieur? It's not strong, but extremely classy and the father of all out modern male chypres.
