    Agree. I don't like that many of them, but they are pricey scents that smell like pricey scents for sure.

    They also smell very chemical to me and make me feel that i've put something unhealthy on my skin. Gold in particular i have found to be a heavy pimp cologne and nothing to be associated with luxury, at least my notion of it.

    Weird. None of them smell "chemical" to me whatsoever, not even Ciel. Maybe you got a bad sample.

    Meh, not to derail the thread, but i got the small boxed set with the 6 samples and every each one of them smelled way too synthetic for my tastes. Like, in a way that made think "i am gonna get cancer" and "this shouldn't pass a health safety inspection in a civilized country". Maybe i got a bad sample set, who knows. That's a pity, because i liked Epic Man quite a lot, but it was still marred with that poisonous aspect lingering.

    +1 Carnal Flower

    Add the relaxed L'Ombre dans L'eau or Chanel 19 edp

    The C&S n88 when i go gentleman.

    Ambre Russe or Ambre Precieux when in amber mood.

    M7, Habit Rouge, Chergui, le 3 Homme, Black Aoud (sprayed lightly) and 3 Fleurs (Parfum d'empire) get honorable mention.

    It's definitely Tabac Blond for me. It has so many facets, but overall feel is on the verge from luxurious to decadent
    Cuir de Russie extrait and Ubar are fantastic calls!
    I'll add Vol de Nuit extrait. It makes me feel yes luxurious and a couple of inches taller than I am already

    I see Amouage listed here alot, quite frankly im not impressed with any of their frags. The best Ive smelled is the Honour Man. Personally I think they all smell like 80 year old man. Not knocking anyone who enjoys them thats just how I feel.

    Personally right now I really like Bvlgari Pour Homme Soir for a Luxury Scent. Either that or Frapin 1270

    I agree with you. Tiffany for Men. I don't have this yet, but I've tried it out a few times and I think it oozes luxury and elegance.
