    Default Are there any modern masculine designer scents?

    With the exception of Narciso Rodriguez PH I can't think of any modern designer male fragrances that are truly masculine (i.e. without a trace of aqua in them) in the way that the old 80's fragrances were.

    I like some of the 80's powerhouses however I also like modern scents and I don't always want to be the centre of the scent attention.

    Can you guys give me any heads up for stuff to look out for?

    Cheers

    Andy

    Hi Andy,

    Rive Gauche pour Homme is a decent exception, at least from my standpoint, however it is quite powerful. Same thing with DK Men/Fuel for Men - both have balls to 'em.

    If we're talking a little subtler and more affordable, and even more modern, Abercrombie & Fitch Woods (recently re-released), is pretty nice.

    Feel free to shoot me down if you've tried any of those already. By Man by Dolce and Gabbana is also really nice, if you can find it.

    Assuming "modern" means 90's - present....

    Micheal for men (Michael Kors) and Burberry London for men are good examples.

    angel men has been seen by supermasculine by some, while others find it very feminine. it's an extremely broad topic really.

    Andyjreid,
    I completely agree with NRfh and since you like that one, please try Shiseido's Zen for Men. This was a 180 for me. At first I smelled similarities between the two but felt that ZfM was too mainstream. After a couple of wearings, it hit me in the head. There's a strange, slightly sweet note in there that keeps bursting and works some kind of magic for me. By the way the noses are Francis Kurkdjian and Francois Caron!

    Even though I'm not a Burberry guy, I think London, Brit and The Beat are very good and modern.
    I also agree with Lalique Encre Noire.

    Maybe l'Anarchiste (Caron) or Sequoia (CdG)?

    Edit: Caron may not be a designer house, but l'Anarchiste and Yatagan aren't exactly on the budget-breaking end of niche.
