    Go to the powerhouse group discussion, there's a ton of ideas there.

    SOTD: Davidoff for Men (1984) -- it's in the dictionary under mucho macho manly masculine man (the '84 unabridged oxford edition, of course). Not an easy find, but worth the hunt if you are into such things. Spicey, leather, with some castoreum to anchor. Now... What is easy to find is Vermeil for Men, go to scented monkey and buy some now. Do not think about it, just do it. I stumbled across some on ebay a month or so ago for a ridiculous price -- as a result, I went to the monkey and picked up backups for $11/per 3.4oz bottle on a deal (YMMV, but probably not by much). It is old school to the max, as they say. It shares many of the manly qualities of Davidoff 1984. Do it.

    And there's always Yatagan.

    Creed Vintage Tabarome would fill the bill in my opinion.

    Encre noir invoked a feeling of manliness in me.

    Speaking of Chuck Norris. I invented the Chuck Norris toilet paper but you guys won't ever get to see it. I submitted the concept to Procter & Gamble. They rejected it due to trial findings that it wouldn't take s&*t from NOBODY.

    Today I wore Michael Jordan's Legend and was really impressed with it even though it is an inexpensive cologne. For a 'high quality' one I'd go with Pour Monsieur too.

    No, it's made by a company with a girls name so it's clearly not manly........

    By the way, I purchased some Mazzolari Lui. It smelled awful, like an unwashed and angry homeless guy who just finished stabbing someone for their wallet. But I give it props for being coherent.

    Most people only sniff the sprayer or cap, so the floral top notes should be good enough to highlight your hidden sensitive side.

    Currently I owned Creed's SMW, GIT and IM, and Bulgari black.

    Manly is subjective to ones age, location, alpha vs beta male. And total sniff-years experience. 5 years ago I had maybe 5 fragrances and would have scoffed at many in my collection.

    But if you're asking which frags come across as having a pair, they've been lined up already. In descending order:

    1. ELd'O Secretions Magnifique. It smells like freshly chopped bulls testicles. Blind buy. Can't go wrong. (jk)

    2. Azzarro Pour Homme - Tea, Florals, Spices, more Tea. But it smells like its 1978 and you've been working out with Arnold.

    3. Dior Farenheit : Gasoline :: Bulgari Black : Rubber

    4a. Kouros - the way your dad smelled when he was a young man, talking up the ladies, smoking cloves, drinking whiskey.
    4b. Aramis - the way your grandfather smelled etc while doing all these things and being much cooler than you

    5. Quorum - it's a 1980's action movie set in forested area. sweat, lots of green, some bugs, some dirt, a splash of mint.

    6. Creed Acier Aluminum - knight's steel armor and trousers have been unearthed somewhere in the UK and youre the curator in charge of cleaning them. after 2 days of cleaning, this is the best u will get them to smell.

    7. Antaeus - old basement furniture

    8. Tom Ford Tuscan Leather - the leather inside a restored Jag E-type Coupe

    9. YSL Rive Gauche - Barbasol original shave cream + Kouros.

    10. Lalique Encre Noir - Bruce Wayne

    11. Creed BdP - what GIT's dad smelled like when he was ... oh nevermind

    12. Montale Woods and Spice - take the classic woods/spice combo and add radioactive polar bear urine. dries down nicely.


    there are many others, but that's it for now
