    One Man Show by Bogart
    Kouros
    Aramis Devin
    I think Woody Chypres are most masculine unwearable now a day. Such as Aramis , Aramis 900, Polo,... Even my father and my grandfather don't like to wear them.

    It's hard to differentiate between "best-smelling masculine fragrance" and "most masculine wearable fragrance".. I had to rethink some of what I was going to suggest to weed out the former, FWIW

    My recommendation of most masculine wearable frangrances are:
    - Azzaro Pour Homme
    - Givenchy Gentleman
    - Chanel Antaeus, which I also think as the best-smelling

    I also was going to suggest VCA ph, but the powdery note made me doubt it. Tsar also made the list, but it was floral. Kouros, I'm not sure on the wearability (though I never had any complaints wearing it -in Indonesian daytime nonetheless-). Paco Rabanne got scratched because it is too similar to Azzaro ph (which is more masculine). Etc.

    Parfum d'Habit is a strong scent but absent of any "traditional" feminine notes that are overly sweet or floral. (I add that I believe that no notes should be off limits due to gender and one should wear what he/she likes.)
    Parfum d'Habit may be the most masculine smelling fragrance I have ever smelled. I love the stuff. However, it's far from mainstream, and I'm sure lots of people would consider it "unwearable". It is a bruiser of a fragrance.

    1. Cartier Santos
    2. Guerlain Vetiver
    3. Hermes Rocabar
    4. Creed Bois Du Portugal
    5. Guerlain Heritage
    6. Hermes Bel Ami
    7. Creed Vintage Tabarome


    All very distinctly masculine, particularly in the traditional western sense of masculine as most think of it. All are still very classy and elegant, rendering them wearable in almost any scenario, without being so overtly "sex panther" masculine as to be offensive.

    I'm a big fan of some of the stronger ones, namely Aramis, Tuscany, and Kouros. IMO, three full sprays of any of those would be offensive. Kouros, especially...I find one "walk through" of that stuff to be sufficient. Lots of bang for the buck with that one. As for your topic, I think Aramis is hard to beat, but I'm not as well versed as most here.

    I see someone mentioned Ginenchy Gentleman. I love the scent, but there's something about it that I deemed unwearable for myself. Reminded me of the bowl of an old, well-used tobacco pipe. Nice, but just too sweet and dark for me.

    I say try Clive Christians C for men. Very masculine leather, it's just sublime, very addictive though.

    Sorry Gents,

    I posted this in the wrong thread! My apologies- these I'm sure would not ,by some, be deemed wearable.

    Not masculine scents tout court, I think "manly signature" appeal only:
    Fougere Royal by Houbigant
    Tabacco by Odori
    L'Heure Mysterieuse By Cartier
    Yatagan by Caron
    Fumidus by Profvmvm and other strong vetyver scents
    Bois d'Ombrie by Eau d'Italie
    Lonestar Memories by Tauer
    Mazzolari by Mazzolari
    Aramis
    Givenchy Gentleman
    ...
    Women them wearing results very fascinating..

    Public wearings? Why not?

    But Aramis is very similar to several other leather feminines that predate it, and is nearly identical to the younger Azuree marketed to women by the same parent company.
