    Great blind buy as it is very likeable and inoffensive. It does stay close to you and lasts several hours if applied liberally. I find I can get away with five sprays and not choke people out.

    I love this fragrance too, but projection is weak. Goes close to the skin rather quickly. Longevity is average.

    Go for it ! Its a easy one to get rid of if you dont like it.

    Gucci Pour Homme II - exquisite, black tea envelopes this fragrance, from its fresh opening, through its spicy heart, and finishing with its smokey base ... be forewarned, the projection and longevity may be lacking, but certainly its stupendous versatility more than compensates ...

    It's the last great fragrance from the Gucci house after this they started putting out sugar water sadly

    Likeable for sure....I've had good longevity and projection, but I've heard others complain about both

    That was me on the bus this morning. Some mornings I think I don't know when to say when. Good to know I likely didn't kill anyone!

    I find some of the notes grating, so after about hour they become annoying. luckily after three hours it is gone.

    One of the blind buy purchases I have made. Go for it. Sweet black tea fragrance

    Use to be my #1. No longer, but it's still in my top 10. I have maybe 3-5 sprays left (virtually bare), and will be replacing it next week with the 100 ml bottle! Can't wait! I miss wearing this one. :-)

    Great blind buy. Longevity and projection may be a little bit off, but the scent is irresistably pleasant.

    Default Re: Gucci Pour Homme II Edt - Blind buy ?

    Projection is quite low, but it's a nice skin comfort scent. Good choice. Hard not to like this one.

    I really enjoyed it during the first few wearings, but you really have to like the smell of black tea because it overwhelms this fragrance. Instead of buying it blind, just go to the grocery store and buy a few bags of black tea and brew them up. If you like the smell buy it.

    Default Re: Gucci Pour Homme II Edt - Blind buy ?

    I think I'm losing my love for this one. I'm not sure if too sharp is the right way to describe it, but it just doesn't smell very smooth to me. I like all the notes but when I get too much cinnamon from it, it doesn't smell bad, just a bit boring. I might use up what I have left, but even if it's not discontinued, I probably won't replace it.

    Yes, this is a wonderFUL fragrance!!

    Great fragrance! I get about 5 hours longevity with low sillage. People need to be close to you for them to detect it.

    One of my faves!! Buy without hesitation. I think I need to wear this again very soon

    Personally I wouldn't, the comments about lack of sillage and longevity, and there are many, put me off.

    Default Re: Gucci Pour Homme II Edt - Blind buy ?

    You should if you like sweet scents. I started by liking it more than Gucci Pour Homme I but now I'm leaning more towards that one.

    Default Re: Gucci Pour Homme II Edt - Blind buy ?

    Absolutely great fragrance. The fact that it stays a little closer to the skin than others is actually perfect for me since I have always been of the opinion that a fragrance is to be enjoyed by you and those closest to you.

    If it's a good price I would say go for it.
    I still can't make up my mind about this one.
    Projection and longevity are not great but it's a likeable scent for the majority I would think.

    Agree, its a great scent but very weak. Btw you have hanae mori as your top #1. Do you have the edt or edp?

    stays nice and quiet on skin. i'd say it's one of the safest blind-buys you could make. was my signature scent for 3 years or so.

    if sprayed on your shirt, it will project very well.

    sometimes i'll do a couple sprays on my pillowcases and still be able to smell it down the hall.

    Projection is average and longevity used to be different everytime I wore it but since I started spraying less (2 or 3x) I can smell it easy 10+ hours. Unfortunately I cant say same about London that lasts only like 4-6 hours on me. Both are great stuff. Very modern but unique.

    Blind bought this a while ago. Wore it and didn't care for it at all. Sat there for around 3 months and then decided to give it another full wearing. Absolutely love it now.

    I've been patiently waiting for the price to drop a little. Almost impossible to be found for under $70 USD out the door, even with coupon codes. Nordstrom's here in San Diego has it for $73, after tax it puts it in the $80 bracket.

    Grrrr. I like it though, and I want it in time for the fall.
