    Default Minotaure question

    I tried it and liked it. For what occasion do you consider it to be? Seems rather warm, a bit woodsy, yet somehow clean, it is not dirty. I would not use it in summer, but all other seasons definitely. It is hard to obtain it, but there are two perfumeries in Zagreb wich hold it in limited numbers (always only one or two).

    Can you ppl tell me a bit more about it?

    Tnx in advance.

    I consider it as warmer and more sensual sensual citrus fragrance to be casual, I sense some similarities with Roma Uomo, although not very pronounced, it might be suitable for day-wear occasions during the warmer days of spring and autumn, it has that quite versatile kind of notes which project greatly both during warmer and cooler weather

    Thanks Ken, you're not the only one mentioning Roma Uomo when it comes to Minotaure. I've never tried Roma Uomo, though - it is supposed to be ˝lesser Minotaure˝.

    I get a sorta sharp candy vibe from Minotaure. To me, it feels casual.

    I agree with this Kenzo Power lover. A candied woods scent.

    Minotaure doesn't seem to have that much "oomph"...which is okay. Its a good solid casual scent in my books. Exactly what we all need. Its also a scent that changes, which makes it interesting.
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Nicole Miller (vintage), Opium pour Homme, Oxford & Cambridge...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of Jil Sander Feeling Man, Cacharel Nemo, Bijan for Men EDC, Lanvin for Men, Giorgio VIP, Il Lancetti and other old school frags ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    Never wear it, it smells like burnt plastic dipped in orange icing.

    I love Minotaure. It's leather on vanilla, with a light citrus opening. There is definitely a chemical/plastic-y smell to it, some people dislike it, but I seem to really like it.

    The late drydown does, the opening and middle stage is rather beautiful. It's just that awful base.

    I agree with the Roma Uomo comparison.

    I really don't know when the right time to wear this is. It's not a bad scent at all, but it doesn't ever feel like the best choice, thus why I'm looking to unload my bottle.

    Ungaro I 75ml

    Roma Uomo and Minotaure have the same use. But Minotaure is more sweet and casual, instead Roma Uomo is more sexy and elegant.

    Don't limit its use - I found it works VERY well in the hot summer months.
    An absolutely fantastic all around frag and is definitely casual.
