    Default best SMELLLING fragrances in your opinion.

    The question is, what are your favorite SMELLLING colognes. the most pleasant smelling. the best smellling. NOT "unique" or watever. not best longevity. not best projection. none of that matters for this question. the question is simple, for however long it lasts or how close u have to get, what smells the best

    My favorite smell ever originating from a fragrance is the top notes of Parfum DelRae's Amoureuse. It develops in another direction, but that moment, that first spritz, is heaven.

    Amouage Reflection Man

    also, the first hour or two of MPG Bois de Turquie (the rest is really good, too, but those first couple of hours are divine!)

    Of course, I think all in my top 12 (and a number of others) are absolutely amazing smelling throughout.

    Jonny, since you love Le Male so much, you should really check out a few of the niche scents that have been compared to Le Male but are generally seen as better scents all around (at least in regards to ingredient quality).

    The two that I can think of that fit the bill are Amouage Reflection Man and Invasion Barbare from MCDI. Given your love of Le Male, it'd be worth the few bucks for samples from Luckyscent, imo.

    Jonny, do this at your own risk because "once you smell niche, you'll want to switch!"

    I know I mentioned this fragrance already but the top notes of Amouage Reflection are absolutely divine. When I first smelled the scent I was taken aback and literally breathless because of its beauty. I immediately knew I needed this fragrance! It was the most poignant "OMG that is BEAUTIFUL!" type moment I've yet to experience since starting this journey. It was far more beautiful than my pathetic attempt to describe the experience here. This post does it little justice.
