    Default Hi gentlemen:). If I like these frags, what scents, incl. niche wud u recommend?

    Hey guys,

    Um, haven't really posted too much on the male discussion threads. The ladies side is slow. You all need to get your wives/gfs on here.

    But anyway!

    Some of my fave scents are Polo Double Black, Abercrombie & Fitch Fierce, Chanel Egoiste, Egoiste Platinum..

    so, what would you recommend I sniff? And, I haven't smelled any male niche scents at all yet, so curious about those too.

    Thanks a lot guys!.

    Oh and male scents of course, these would be for my husband.

    otherwise ... try:

    Fumidus by Profumum - One is initally treated to a dram of aromatic scotch whisky, with its tempered harshness harnessed by the indolic sweetness of peat. A nascent, barnyardy aroma of cigar tabacco peeks through as well as a hint of abrading iodine. Medicinal birch bark elbows itself into the mix with its medicinal, wintergreen character and its hint of effervescent birch beer. The sweet, minty intrusion nicely counterbalances the sharpness of the scotch accord. Magical vetiver joins the fray with its rich earthiness and deep muskiness. A strong smokiness envelops the comforting blend. The robust vetiver likewise imparts its syrup, hay and tabacco offerings. A faint armpit body odor and dank woodiness also present. A titillating drydown ensues. This manly composition has excellent projection and longevity - easy on the trigger is the catchphrase here

    I would say look into these ones for starters based on your tastes:

    Creed's Aventus
    Penhaligon's OPUS 1870
    Bois 1920's Sushi Imperiale
    Costume National's 21
    Serge Luten's Gris Clair
    Le Labo's Rose 31

    If you want a few that are still safe but are a bit richer than the aforementioned, I would recommend these myself:

    Puredistance's M
    Amouge's Jubilation XXV
    Lubin's Idole EDP
    Histoires de Parfums' Ambre 114
    Bond no 9's Silver Factory

    If you want to try a few that are a bit more distinct/challenging, but outstanding nonetheless, I'd hunt down some samples of these (but if any of these are your first time trying out niche, remember to test them on skin, and allow at least 30-45 minutes breathing time before you make a judgement on any of them):

    Tom Ford's Noir de Noir
    Serge Lutens' Musc Koublai Khan
    Maison Francis Kurkdjian's Absolue Pour le Soir
    Frapin's 1697
    Frederic Malle's Musc Ravageur
    Tauer's L'Air du Desert Marocain
    Montale's Dark Aoud

    Among the best designer masculines, be sure to check out Dior Homme and Chanel Sycomore (which you may have to head to a Chanel boutique to find).

    If you like Egoiste I recommend an upgrade to Bois Des Iles.

    If you have never smelt any niche before I would recommend testing some Creed as it is commonly available
