    Default Help Me Pick A New Sweet Scent..

    i would like a sweet date scent budget is limited to Designer for now.
    Options
    a. La Nuit De L'Homme
    b. L'Homme
    c. Prada Amber Homme Intense
    d. Allure Homme

    How about Angel for Women, do guys wear that ? I only tried it in a store once a year ago
    I do not like the opening of Amen...

    I recently got and traded off Dior Homme Intense (too Shalimar-ish for me)
    and Midnight In Paris (too Bulgari Black-Ish for me)

    Help me out...
    you see my collection below minus some stuff I did not list in my current favorites..

    Out of those, La Nuit.

    And Angel is perfectly wearable on a guy. It's very similar to the men's version, but without the tar up top. If you dig it, I would go with that! Also look into Animale Animale.

    Yes to Angel. In fact, yesterday I was wearing Angel la Rose (a flanker) myself. However, if I remember correctly, Angel is actually more expensive than any of the above.

    Outside of your set, New York by Parfums de Nicolai (orange amber) is niche, but I don't think it's more expensive than mainstream. If you can find it, that is.

    Does anyone know if the re-release of pure malt last week is it??
    I hope it's coming back out for at least a couple months

    I'm thinking L'instant is a good choice to include on my list as well..

    F Pure Malt. Find something else. It's not the holy grail it's been made out to be.

    Rochas Man
    New Haarlem
    L'Instant Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme
    L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme

    Chocolate Amere
    Coze
    Endymion
    Tobacco Vanille
    Back to Black


    You can do what you want...I do not advocate you wear Angel. My own bias. I love it on women. Smells like cotton candy and makes me nuts. Don't get caught up in this Pure Malt hysteria. It's an okay scent, but a lot guys here are being jerked around by this artificially contrived "limited availabilty." There are plenty of options. This obsession with Pure Malt is getting moronic. It smells like A*men, Pure Coffee, Pure Havane or Pure _____.

    When I read your thread title, Prada Amber pour Homme was the first thing that came to mind. It's very versatile and can be used in a variety of situations, but if you're looking for something to wear on a date then I think La Nuit would be the better option. Try both though and see which one you like, but Prada does deliver on the sweetness front if that's what you're after

    I would recommend trying to see if you can trade back for your MiP or DHI.

    That being said, I'll second StylinLA's list of sweet heavy hitters, especially Back to Black and Coze (though there are a few on that list I have yet to smell).

    From your list, I can only recommend Prada Amber Homme Intense. But Angel is a much better option.

    I would not wear Angel as a man. I would wear Lolita Lempicka or Kenzo Jungle Elephant.
