    It really is a deep and satisfying orange blossom scent and the amber and woods help make it warm and give you that seductive glow. Glad you are enjoying it.

    A lot of neroli/orange blossom scents tend to be restrained or have a citrus aromatic feel to them but seem to be thin on the "star of the show" notes. Not here though you get the orange blossom in all its glory.

    I really enjoy this one as well, however, owning Reflection Man makes me feel the need to not purchase this. Yes, i know they are not the same, but something similiar and i prefer Reflection. Probably main reason is i'm trying to limit my wardrobe and if anyting have been selling things off lately. Down to 20 bottles now. But APOM is great, i'm going to continue going through mys amples, i have a good 6ml of this stuff, maybe things will change after some more wearings.

    I always jus got "nothing" from APOM Pour Homme. When sampling I would just scratch my head and ask why?

    Absolue pour le soir is sole king in this line. The others are just variations of Aqua Universalis and Gendarme. Yuck!

    If you order directly from the MFK site you get your choice of four 2ml spray vials for like 12 euros (shipping included). And they arrive pretty fast. I like TPC, but I think this deal beats anything they offer hands down.

    So true! They're sprayers and a good quantity, which is doubly awesome!

    APOM PH is a fantastic fragrance.
    Sensual like no other. Intoxicating.

    It is quite unisex though.
    Almost made me wonder if they filled my decant with the "pour femme" version...

    I blind bought a bottle of this. When I first sniffed it, I was pretty disappointed. There was this weird plastic note that stuck out and ruined APOM PH for me. My brother tested it and got the same thing. It reminded us of some toy from our youth.

    I gave it a few more wearings the last few weeks. I don't know if it's just because APOM is really suited for the spring, or if repeat wearings have adjusted my nose for this scent, but I've done a 180 on APOM PH - it strikes me as a perfect spring fragrance. I don't really get the plastic association anymore, I just smell this beautiful golden glow. I'm really enjoying this one now, strange how impressions can change so much.

    @ hobbes22 - Glad APOM pour Homme finally worked for you. It's quite an exhilarating and delightful scent.

    Yeah, I agree, it definitely works better in warm weather, I've noticed that too.

    Like this one too.
    Wear a white buttoned down shirt after a shower. Very clean feeling to it.

    I have these three plus 'Oud'. All are of supreme quality.

    Is anyone having quality issues over time with this fragrance?

    I just retested my official sample (I keep all my stuff cool and in the dark) and it's dull and a bit rancid, very far from what I remember. I should add that Absolue pour le Matin and Lumiere Noire smell as always...

    Silly update: No idea what happened back in January, but the other day I tested it again and it smelled fine and better than APLM

    Yes: the issue being that it gets even better by time I bought it 2 years ago, used the 70 mls bottle very sparingly, so there's still about 4-5 mls in the bottle. I keep it in its original box. It's the same gorgeous, or even better scent which I bought in Paris, in Kurkdjian's Maison. Maybe samples are more prone to getting worse by time...

    APOM PH is fantastic. Sometimes I just do one spray to the upper chest, and get wafts of that beautiful scent throughout the day. Has good sillage that I've found 2 sprays to be too much on some days.

    OMG I just tried this at Neiman Marcus today. I am absolutely blown away! It's been a while since a fragrance has given me such a reaction. I think Jack perfectly described it. APOM gives you a beautiful glowing sensation. It just radiates warmth and a soft and sensual orange blossom. Absolutely beautiful. I wasn't very impressed with his other lines at first sniff but this one definitely pulled me in. If anyone doesn't want their bottle, I'll buy it from them haha

    I'm wearing this today from a sample I've had for a bit. I agree it's well composed, but I'm not sure what I think of orange blossom as a note. It's odd, really; I understand why some folks get a laundry or dryer sheet effect (surely the fault of industrial fragrance using orange blossom), but even more so I get the "corn tortilla" effect I also get from Reflection Man. I assume it's the orange blossom in both cases. Why does orange blossom smell a bit of corn tortilla? So odd.

    It is a very nice fragrance although, there's a musk note that ruins it for me. Kobe is similar and longer lasting (and unfortunately for expensive) and I prefer it overall.

    I've done a 180 on this one. I'm so glad I was still trying to finish my decant before buying a bottle. For some reason I finally noticed that musky note in the base. Now I can't unsmell it. Damn shame, I really liked this one too

    APOM is pretty good....I too sometimes get that one note that I kinda have a problem with. It almost has a "spit" smell to it, if you know what I mean....But as with most fragrances, you try them on and at that time and moment you don't particularly care for it, but after a few other wearings, I've actually grown quite fond of it...

    My faves though are Still Oud, Amyris, and Pluriel at the moment...
    CURRENT TOP TEN FOR SUMMER (HOT):
    1.) MFK Pluriel for him
    2.) Vetiver Fatal
    3.) Guerlain L'eau
    4.) Anat Fritz Tzora
    5.) Frank No. 2 L.A.
    6.) Dior Homme Eau
    7.) Invasion Barbare
    8.) Xerjoff Nio
    9.) Byredo Bal D'Afrique
    10.) Escentric 02

    I get a lot of positive feedback on my sample of this one, but to my nose, Lumiere Noire Pour Homme is a much more elegant fragrance (and happens to be my favorite from the house, along with Aqua Universalis Forte).
