    Eau de Lalique never seems to quite get the recognition it merits despite the positive reviews. It has to be one of the best green/fresh/spicy frags around yet I rarely see it on any SOTD threads. It's sheer versatility makes it a viable proposition for virtually any occasion and lasting power / sillage don't disappoint either. Great stuff IMO and good value too.

    Yeah, I rewore this again after many years, and it was really hot and I got turned off by it. I need to check it out again in the cooler months.

    Drakkar Noir - I wore it years ago, until my sister's totally hot friend referred to it as "Lemon Pledge." First time I'd heard that in reference to a fragrance. Last time I wore it.

    I'll stick my neck out.....Larrikin by Mt. Romance, a lovely sandalwood direct from the grower with better longevity than my review, yeah I'm Australian and there isn't much perfume much made in Oz, but this always gets complimented and never gets mentioned in comparisons.

    My vote goes to Les Nereides Imperial Opoponax. It creates an amazing aura which takes my mind to a far away utopian mentality. It's a spiritual experience for me.

    +1 Burberry Classic
    +1 Dior Homme Intense

    I would like to also add Tokyo by Kenzo. It is not well known for its sillage, but is really an interesting frag.

    If it is truly overlooked, we wouldn't be thinking about it.

    Marc Jacobs for Men doesn't seem to get much mention around here, but it's a really great fig/rose scent that is certainly worth trying.

    Must de Cartier Eau Fine is hardly mentioned on any board. This is a vanilla/amber limited scent (not listed in the Directory) which smells like a lighter version of the original Obsession for Men. This is one of the best frags i currently have. It is understated but with sillage that is always "there" throughout its (especially for a Cartier) significant longevity.
    ointments and perfume delight the heart....
