Cuvee Royale by Charvet
It seems that many clothing stores have their own fragrance lines these days. Do you like any of them? What do you like? Are there any hidden gems out there?
I liked Banana Republic Classic and Black Walnut and Coach Leather Man, but I have not tried many of the others from the various stores, except for a couple of Gap fragrances, which I did not think were that great.
How about you?
Oh, we all know about Fierce, so let's leave that one out.
Cuvee Royale by Charvet
Brooks Brothers fragrances.
Aeropostale,makes a nice little gourmand called Benton that does a passable impression of Paco Rabane's one million with some more chocolate. It's very nice as is Maximum, one of their other fragrances.

1. Axe Kilo
2. Lectric Shave
3. Vicks Vapor Rub
4. Febreze Pour Homme
5. Preferred Stock
That's kind of a funny question, since companies like Burberry technically have clothing outlets (generally pretty popular too). So, for that, I'll say Burberry London or Brit. Both nice frags for what they are meant to do.
I think the OP is talking about companies where their fragrance is exclusive.
I like Black Walnut from Banana Republic and Fierce from Abercrombie, but neither are anything more than just good.

Odin-New York Wonderful series of fragrances
I subscribe to the theory that the rings of saturn are composed entirely of lost airline luggage.
The Zara fragrances are pretty well done. (not just Zara Gold)
Only one I ever tried from a clothing store line that I can think of is Abercrombie Fierce. Not bad. A little cloying, but not bad. My wife wears Coach Poppy, and I really like that a lot. One of the best female fragrances IMO.
Black Walnut by Banana Republic is an agreeable composition, but, regrettably, lacks projection and longevity.
The Scoth and Soda store always smells nice. Its generic sweetish fougere and not very long lasting. But when sprayed in the store its quite appealing.
I've really been enjoying Forte this fall.
I quite like Paul Smith Extreme, though to be honest I'm not quite sure what you mean by a clothing store.
Surely Armani Burberry and many others are "clothing stores"
Though terribly generic by some standards- including some of mine- Zara has, in my opinion, some very underrated offerings:
including an interesting cedarwood scent and a nice, surprisingly little cloying variation on the famous One Million-style male gourmand theme.
Next time your in American Eagle, give this one a shot. Its actually pretty good!!
CURRENT TOP 5
1. Dior Homme Intense
2. Creed Aventus
3. Tom Ford Extreme
4. Gucci Pour Homme II
5. Terre d'Hermes
Dior....too many to count.
Be yourself! Everyone else is taken!
Guess Seductive Homme
I am telling you there is some Pure Malt DNA in it. I started to love it too
ďArenít you a little short for a stormtrooper?Ē
If Diesel counts, then my vote goes to Zero Plus Masculine (although it's long discontinued).
All this and no love for the minty aquatic goodness of Express Honor?
I am not afraid to keep on living - I am not afraid to walk this world alone.
Still goes to Fierce in my opinion.
Kiton black by kiton for men
Mine would be Creed Scent of Oger. It also might be the only clothing store fragrance I own!
