    I find myself feeling like wearing Le Male more than I do anything else. It's just a bit too popular in my world, which is a shame.

    I have never been a fan of Le Male. It is pungent and odd in my opinion. However, my lovely lady really likes it, so, I will humor her from time to time and wear it. For me, it just has all the makings of a "no go" fragrance; Loud, odd, prevalent, creepy bottle, gives me a headache about 50% of the time, and far from the best offering in its respective genre. I am going to give my current gold star to Tobacco Vanille. Now that is a "WOW" fragrance.

    It is highly dependent on wearer. On some people it smells classy and authoritative. Overall I like it and wear it once in a while.

    I do not like Le Male and never have.

    I do think it's a good fragrance though and can understand why others do.

    I don't have a favourite vanilla fragrance yet but so far I very much like Lutens Un Bois Vanille and Micallefs Vanille Aoud.

    I've developed too many negative associations with it. Where I am, I see too many (oh, how do I put this?) "Jersey Shore"-type guys wearing it. It's become synonymous with douchebags here.

    Used to own it years ago before I got into fragrances. Just smelling a magazine sample now...I don't think I'll be going back to it.

    I like it, but there's too many scents I like better to consider it. My favourite vanilla may forever be Tobacco Vanille, but this Odin NY 01 Nomad stuff is really growing on me (even if it is more tonka than vanilla).

    I always get a bottle of it for Christmas from my older brother. Never had the heart to tell him, I stopped wearing it in my very early 20's. Gonna have to tell him this year

    It's not that it's a bad scent per say, it's just extremely over played (duh!), it's the Justin Bieber of scents

    Le Male - I like the notes, however is too synthetic.
    IMO most available vanilla based frags smells too sweet, and I regard sweet Vanilla as vulgar and cheap, anyways this one is fantastic: Not Sweet

    2) Spiritueuse Double Vanille by Guerlain
    3) Bois des Iles by Chanel

    I actually like it, but it would be difficult to mention all the vanilla scents I like, since there is hardly any vanilla frag I dislike

    I'm vaguely in the "like" camp with this one. Used to love it, but after going through an entire bottle years ago I can't stand the smell of it any longer. Objectively, I still think it is a decent fragrance, but having smelled it so much it now turns my stomach.

    I used to really like Le Male. Not too crazy about the dry down, but it has one of my favorite oriental openings. I still think it's a wonderfully put together fragrance

    Then I just got sick of it. Think it's because I wore it a lot. I also encounter WAY too many people who just completely abuse it which isn't helping me want to go back.

    Don't like Le Male. Actually it is sickening to me. I don't like saying negative things about fragrances because I know my opinions change with time - but NO.

    Some great vanillas are: Diptyque Eau Duelle and Soivohle Vanillaville.

    I like it. It's good in small doses, light application.

    Any problem is not with Le Male. It's with people who bathe in it. And yes, they do tend to have personalities you wouldn't want to be associated with.

    Hopefully, some other fragrance that I don't care for will take over this role of fragbomb (1 Million and La Nuit de L'Homme looked like they might take over, maybe we need to wait for something else), and then Le Male can be re evaluated

    I would like to say that LE MALE is the worst vanilla fragrance that i've ever smelled... i'm sure there are worse bottles out there and its a matter of time before i come across them.

    I was at the Diptyque Boutique in SF last month and was able to finally get an initial impression of Eau Duelle: I thinks its a pretty nice fragrance and definitely irs worth sampling in the future. I'm set on purchasing Philosykos sometime next year.

    I don't like it but I recognize is not a bad scent.
    My favorite Vanilla has to be Guerlain's Spirituose Doble Vanille!
    That thing is an olfative vanilla orgasm!

    i like le male. yes it is synthetic to the trained nose, but it works. at least it doesn't stink (like the opening of musc ravaguer does).

    favourite vanilla is SDV.

    I wished Guerlain made a smaller size bottle for SDV, so that i would be a little bit more affordable.

    It's good to know that there's plenty of us who dislike Le Male.

    Blind bought, expected a brilliant fragrance based on reviews, I got a boring, slightly vanilla/powdery plastic smelling linear fragrance.

    I like the scent, it's not bad, the projection and longevity are powerful too, I've had comments on it. It's not one of my favourites though.

    If I had to choose any of the fragrances the 'wrong' type of people wear (you know the Jersey Shore over-sprayers), it would be this.

    This > 1 Million x a thousand.

    Le Male is my "scent of the day", and yes, I'm wearing it in 90F weather, so watch out Lol! Needless to say, I love it, year round.

    i will have to keep smelling it until I smell it as Vanilla, because right now, I'm not getting vanilla at all. I like it, but its not overused in my circles, i'm the only one i know who wears it. guess i'm lucky!
