    1.Fleur de Male

    I've never cared about the others. I hate Gaultier 2, and I know Le Male is not a bad perfume, but it's been imitated ad nauseam. There're so many bad copies around I'm sick and tired of it.
    ... And do me a favor - don't disturb my friend. He's dead tired.

    1. Gaultier 2 - most sexy one, reminds me Mugler's Alien. Not for everyone. Smells better on woman IMO.
    2. Le Male - Le Male
    3. Fleur Du Male - very unique scent. Sometimes I crave to wear my sample but IMO it is not full bottle worthy
    4. Le Male Terrible - Le Male minus interesting mint top notes
    TOP 3 hot weather:

    1. Gucci Pour Homme II
    2. Lalique Encre Noire
    3. Creed Aventus


    TOP 3 cold weather:

    1. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme
    2. Chanel Coromandel
    3. Dior Homme

    The bads - Le Male, Gaultier 2, Fleur de Male

    The good - Kokorico, maybe. Haven't smelled it yet but it sounds underwhelming

    I've sampled Kokorico and so far i haven't found it very interesting.

    I smelled kokorico the other day and honestly the best thing about it is the cooly designed bottle. It smells like a dusty wardrobe for the forst half an hour and fades into an A*Men (which i don't like) style concoction but with less sweetness and more dry spice and a dirtiness in the smell.

    Well put. On paper I thought it was similiar to l'instant, but it was differnt on my skin... quite similar to what you described.

    I realize everyone's sense of smell differs, but I honestly don't know why JPG fragrances (the popular ones, anyway) get so much play. I have a full 4.2oz bottle of Le Male because it's not unpleasant and I had a gift card which made it very inexpensive. But to me it just smells like a synthetic linear vanilla + powder concoction. This linear/synthetic theme seems to permeate in the other two JPG's I've tried (Terrible and Gaultier 2), and makes me not want to even try the newer Kokorico. Not trying to bash the house, just wish I got something out of these frags that many of us seem to. If I had to, I'd say Le Male first (still gets compliments- seems to be a crowd-pleaser), and then Gaultier 2. I could not recommend Terrible, and haven't tried FdM. Somehow I feel like I'm not missing out on much.
