    Default What are some good masculine florals?

    I was interested in getting a floral cologne, what are some good ones I could check out?
    I'm already familiar with what I would consider some of the more popular ones, Green Irish Tweed, Hanae Mori, etc.

    Very good and amazingly inexpensive: Roger & Gallet Bouquet Imperiale. Get a gift set that includes the bar soap, too. Very good bang for the buck. And the best part: it's a superb, refined fragrance. I always feel so clever and refined when I indulge in this one. Definitely worth the $35 or so. Jump on it.

    Outrageous price, but Clive Christian Number One is fairly floral and elegant.

    Caron's Third Man very nice too.

    I do like Rose 31, but I think it becomes much more of a cedar scent than floral.

    Grey Flannel is a nice violet tinged fragrance.
    Lapidus Pour Homme has one of the nicest, soapiest roses I've ever smelled. Totally unpretty and raw, but accompanied with honey and all kinds of other beautiful things. Good cheap '80s fun.
    Fahrenheit is incredibly floral.

    Thanks to CPK for introducing me to Jardin du Nil. A lovely geranium and rose combination.
    Which is somewhat similar to my SotD (no.88) which is also rose and geranium but with plenty of sandalwood.

    If you like rose and geranium Hedonist, check out Washington Square by Bond. It's rose + geranium in a more herbal context - with a dark tarragon note, and also some gourmand aspects, all on a nice suede amber base. Fantastic stuff. (I've realized lately that I really love geranium in scents.. I too love JdN and am coming around to No. 88. Love the strong geranium note in Honour Man, too).

    Ill definitely try that one out.

    Another good geranium is L'Anonyme ou OP-1475-A by A Lab on Fire. My mother loves it. Geranium topped with sparkling bergamot laid on a bed of suede.

    Besides Ungaro II and Zino which I love, I would also recommend these two fragrances that are labeled for women but totally wearable for guys: No. 19 and Stella.

    In the niche market, you can also consider Musc Kublai Khan Gris Clair, Rose Poivre

    Too many to list. I concur with most of the suggestions above. Richard James EDT, Amouage Lyric, Rose 31, & Insense, are all awesome.

    For a fresh unisex aquatic floral try Magnolia Romana by Eau d' Italie, and Paestum Rose by the same company is a great fruit, incense, & rose combo.

    Frederic Malle's Carnal Flower is a big butch tuberose that you should definitely check out. FM's Une Rose is also a floral that I'd happily wear.
