Thread: Essence of sex first round
Based on a thread I posted a while back that generated mixed reception, and a few laughs. I am now doing a poll on the essence of sex to see which fragrance is truly the sexiest in this contest. Place your vote. I will allow this to count for 1 week of voting where in which there will be a second round of votes for top 4 of the 8 frags, then a final round to determine the essence of sex. Let the voting begin.

A*Men in the lead for the sexiest fragrance, Le Male and La Nuit de Lhomme close behind . Keep the votes in everyone.
Og those frags: Obsession
... both for men and women!
obsession is a sexy fragrance no doubt like having sex at night on a beach sexy.
A*men still in the lead.
Obsession gets my vote.
fleur and la nuit fighting for 3rd ,le male and obsession fighting for 2nd place. both are great colognes. A men still on top

Isn't there an other section?

I did not put an other section here. It's like voting at an election , you vote for one of the candidates that's on the ballot
Ok, I voted.
But isn't that a fail system as it is? Choosing something that you don't really choose, but between a group of things you are being told to choose?
I looked at the answers on my first thread. I picked the ones most mentioned and a few of my own. Like i said it's like an election, you will get the democrat and republican candidates or in this case A men and Le male, but you will also get some others that are perhaps lower tier. I cannot put down every single frag that people want, if that were the case i would never get this done. I would have about 50 diff colognes and each with 1 vote or so how the heck would I be able to bring it to a top 4 if everyone is voting for their own? At the polls you vote for the lesser of the evils on the ballot or don't vote. Not to be a jerk but one has to draw a line to how many, so I did and I tried to put down frags that most people have smelled before.
To me it's a toss up between JPG and JV. JPG is like the benchmark in sexy fragrances in every aspect.. from its bottle to the juice inside. But, JV is hella sexy for closer more intimate encounters for sure.
Edit: But, I voted for JV because JPG has enough credibility

thanks for the input Cologneist. Jv is way darker to me , more of a dirty type of sexy like a bondage, kinky , nasty type of sexy definitely qualified for the essence of sex. Le male to me is a pure,subtle,tasteful and classy type of sexy, more like a romantic candlelight dinner and dancing with your significant other and after wards at home or hotel, clean bed , rose petals, champagne, romantic music and good ol fashioned adult fun. Le male, la nuit and fleur du male are more light and classy type of sexy. A men, Jv,and obsession are more rough, dirty and naughty type of sexy.
I think we all get images of fragrances so if anyone else wants to put their opinion on these diff frags and what images they get from these colognes feel free to write them.

Of the choice there it would have to be John Varvatos which is a great evening fragrance, well designed and blended and in my experience gets a lot of compliments from women.
There is no way on the planet that A*Men or Le Male can be deemed "sexy" as such. They're way too loud and shouty. Mind you I suppose what age group you're aiming at. If it's young women in clubs and you are trying to get noticed, wearing either of those fragrances will be like wearing a huge yellow arrow over your head saying "I'm wearing a fragrance!". I have to say they are both versatile fragrances, since they can double up as chemical weapons.
In a world where people smell bad, it is the personal responsibility of every Basenoter to improve the world one SotD at a time...
Man HDS you are harsh lol. They are strong colognes no doubt, but if you apply a little you will be alright, and i think not just women from 18-25 like them but even more mature women could like them as well. Women of all ages i think enjoy gourmands, I have had ladies as high as 40 or 50 complimenting A men. But hey Jv is a great frag in its own right and gets compliments and more reasonably priced than A men.
hahaha i love it.
Essence of sex?
My GF says it´s gotta be La Nuit. In this case her opinion is a LOT more important than mine obviously But I agree (although we don´t know all of those)...
Haven't smelled all of the mentioned fragrance so I can't vote, I'm curious though who will win
Great works are performed, not by strength, but by perseverance.
Acier Aluminum really shouldn't be up there lol.
None of the above, but out of the options it's Obsession for me.
I offer you perfume,
More for its pleasure than for yours;
You perfume perfume.

thanks guys ,this is an interesting and fun poll, i think all these frags are sexy in their own way. Any of them could win, le male is definitely the front runner now, obsession and jv fighting for second. Great choices guys, keep em coming
^^ Love the enthusiasm, It's nice to have some fun game-like polls and questions on here. I support!! Keep it up.

acier is a nice fragrance, smells like pancakes with fruits and spices. very sexy
La Nuit Essence of sex? Only if it teenage sex, without any experience. Really boring this one.
powdered chocolate is sexy, subtle but sexy
Acier Aluminum. . . the worst, filthiest 70s porn. . . I love it. . . there should be a law or something. . .
it is a porn star fragrance to be honest, i wore it today. it makes me feel confident , nasty but in good taste and sophistication.
I find myself strangely compelled to grow a handlebar mustache when I wear Acier Aluminum.
lol, one needs a hairy chest to wear that frag
A*Men is just wrong, hideous and ugly. Based on all the hype around this stuff, I gave it fair number of trials. But it smells like horse shit covered up with chocolate.
Oddly enough, I'm liking LL Au Masculin and YSL Body Kouros, both of which are gourmand type colognes as well.
If someone thinks A*Men is the essence of sex, I'd be very tempted to question the salubriousness of their very sex life.
But hey - smell is subjective and all that... Whatever floats your boat.
a men is a sexy fragrance, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, caramel. those are aphrodisiacs man lol. lempica isn't bad either come to think of it.

that's ok man you are entitled to your opinion. that's what makes threads like this great, it's strong but sexy and the ladies love a men, but if you like lighter frags, le male is another sexy freagrance.
A*Men is like the teenage punk with tattoos all over his skinny face, who runs around the road yelling and jumping (he thinks he's a hero, but sadly he isn't).
This punk deserves to be be arrested and detained by a cop like Kouros or Black Aoud, both of which are loud, but for a reason!

lol you are funny, i like mature frags too. a men is a dark and sexy fragrance , it's very sweet and people like it.
Yes, I understand people like it, and I respect that. And I do really want to like it, but I can't because I think it sucks big time.
that's fine, you might like rochas man better, it's more toned down.
Le male is #1, John Varvatos is number 2, A men that used to be #1 is now at a 4 way tie, with Acier, La nuit, and obsession. A men will have to win big in order to stay relevant, the other frags might see a changing of the guard. Keep the votes in guys.

The only way Le Male is light is if its the 300lb girl in the room and its being compared to her 350lb mother.
I prefer Rochas Man or New Haarlem for the sexy fat kid in a candy store gourmand.
