    It smells very strong and harsh when applied, but gets much better after, say, a couple of hours, when everything has settle in.

    Love the effervescent nature of its fougereness, but lately the fragrance is hard and cheap to a degree that diminishes the likelihood of wanting to wear it. I don't know the older formulations, but right now it smells like a variation of soap-on-a-rope. Either way, it still smells a hell of a lot better than many $200 niches and most of the bonbons so popular today.

    I've always loved the bottle and purple juice. Very Black Sabbath.

    I wont say that it is Unpopular. I used to have it few years back and I liked it. It projects like anything.

    It's a classic 80s aromatic fougere, but there's nothing really special about it. I can't really think of I time I would reach for it over anything else if I owned it.

    I would like it if they took out the rotten cabbage note. Its weird how some people smell that weird off note and some dont.

    I enjoy Sung Homme and it manages to receive a lot of compliments when I wear it. I wore it while producing a documentary in Africa and it brings back wonderful memories of the people and the breathtaking countryside. It settles nicely on my skin with a dry, earthy expression, hint of oak moss, and has solid projection. A bit on the lines of Tuscany.

    I have the EDT and an old 6.8 oz bottle of the Sport Splash of Sung Homme. The EDT is a bit of an animal but the Sport Splash seems inviting and fresh.

    My wife is not a fan of this scent.

    It's another 80's fragrance. Most of the younger members here (include myself) would not be pleased with it

    I just bought a bottle of this blind and I have to say its really not that bad. It is a good, confident, and inoffensive mens scent. I would say it is a ready alternative for someone who wants an office-safe non-citrus. Sung Homme and Van Cleef Tsar are somewhat similar in my opinion (even the bottles are similar!). I know Tsar is much greener, but they are both classic-smelling fougeres that project a "clean" vibe without animalic/sweat notes or aquatic-citrus mixes.

    This stuff is way better than Quorum, which is way too sweaty and dated.

    I like Sung Homme, but I don't think it's anything really special. I think Quorum and Tsar are much better fragrances.

    Couldn't agree any more.

    Sung Homme is Irish Spring Soap in a bottle. I like the smell of Irish Spring Soap. I like the smell of Sung Homme.

    However, there's also a screechy, metallic harshness and a chemical feeling about it that renders it almost unwearable. I would have much appreciated the same fragrance done with better quality ingredients. In its current state it is almost repulsive at times.

    Instead, Quorum none of that chemical sharpness and is a pleasure to wear in small doses.

    Tsar is in a class of its own.

    Thanks for dredging up this thread - I think I'll wear it tomorrow, it's been a while and on me it often gets a compliment (no rotten cabbage note appears)

    I like it as well (it should not be compared to Tsar though) and love wearing it now and then.
    Key is not to overapply to avoid a cloying mess (2-3 sprays max!)
    My Top '10' : (In no particular order)

    - Dolce & Gabbana: Pour Homme (vintage)
    - Acqua di Parma: Colonia Leather
    - Loewe: Esencia
    - Davidoff: Leather Blend Edp
    - Revillon: R
    - MPG: Santal Noble
    - Ferrari: Essence Oud
    - Knize Ten
    - YSL: Kouros (Fraîcheur)
    - Dior: Aqua Fahrenheit

    I used to really like it years ago until a girlfriend said it 'stunk' -- never worn it since

    It is true that fish stink. It is also true that the river is
    beautiful. But the river would be beautiful despite the fish. What
    is noxious remains so.

    That is not to say that sh*t is not useful when buried in the wheat
    field. Bread made from the field tastes sweet, wine from the arbor
    sweetest. All things serve a purpose, but that is no reason to
    glorify what is abominable. A man must still watch where he walks
    and keep his sandals clean.

    Don't find anything particular original in it.

    It's got several citrus notes in it - I couldn't call it a non-citrus scent.
    I can't see the connection to Tsar new formulation, but possibly to the old formulation.

    Six sprays of this stuff, and you are ready to confront anybody.

    To me they occupy the rare middle ground between overtly dated classic scents and the aquatic fougeres of modernity. Not many fragrances can straddle the divide successfully.

    I was impressed with the performance I got from 3 sprays, you are hardcore! Go forth.
