    Default HUBBY needs a fume

    My husband doesn't go out much because he works evenings. But he does go to college and once in awhile we like to get out of the house lol. However, he would like a nice cologne with decent lasting power. He likes woodsy, outdoorsy, musky, manly scents. Spicy is nice too. We are looking for something that costs anywhere in the range of $50 to $100 for a bottle. He does not own anything really nice. I really like old spice but we want to try something new. I have trouble with the cheaper body spray type things he buys because they bother my asthma and allergies. So any advice would be greatly appreciated from the expert fume lovers on here Thank you in advance.

    All four are not niche and easily available:

    Terre D'Hermes
    Azzaro Pour Homme
    Chanel Antaeus
    Rive Gauche
    Encre Noire


    For something niche, you should look into:

    Bois du Portugal
    Green Irish Tweed
    L'air du desert Morocain
    Sycomore

    Aren't you sweet to do that! I am wearing Azzaro Pour Homme. It's one of my faves and a bit on the Old Spice flavor. It's a classic and highly regarded on Basenotes. You can find it at your local Perfumania, Sephora or Ulta. Sp? It will be hard to find at your major department stores, though. Still one of the top sellers in Paris.

    Why not something unique? 1903 is a great outdoorsy yet civilized fragrance, which makes it very versatile. True, it's only available from J. Peterman online, but it's only $45 for 3.4 ounces, it smells like quality stuff, and you can return it if you don't like it. Women seem to think it's sexy as well.

    Guerlain Heritage and Chanel Egoiste both fit the bill, I think. Rive Gauche Pour Homme is not too far off. All are in your price range, though you may have trouble finding them locally to test.

    Polo Explorer. Can be found on Ebay, but think it's discontinued as far as being able to buy at the store.. Egoiste would be another recommendation. And Polo Double Black.And of course, Armani Code. Any of those.

    Geir by Geir Ness - Initially, one is treated to an exhilarating citrus-floral accord. Hesperidic notes impart their citrus highlights of lemon, bergamot, tangerine and orange. A perfumy hedione bestows its fresh jasmine and slight powdery aspects. And, magical aldehydes summon forth a burst of laundered-linen freshness and floral effervescence. A faint, sweet smell of salt water taffy flitters about. Transitioning to the waiting heart, the opening blend is enmeshed with methyl salicylate, furnishing its attendant menthol and wintergreen facets, as well as amyl salicylate, supplying its sweetly floral and herbaceously green aura, thereby creating a cool, conifer illusion. A whisper of lively pepper flutters here and there, while a slight, burnt sugar presents. An errant, feeble smell of fireworks or something like burnt gunpowder also surfaces. Segueing to the awaiting base, a smooth, woody accord as well as a somewhat bitter, mossy accord usurp and enhance the outdoorsy mixture, and, coupled with a wave of sweetish vanilla, lead to an alluring drydown. Albeit an ordinary composition, it is the epitome of mountain freshness, and has good projection and very good longevity.

    &

    Aqua Fahrenheit by Christian Dior - This is a considerably toned down version of the original, masterpiece Fahrenheit. No negative connotation is implied or should be taken; rather, this is a distinctive composition, somewhat bright and fresh, with ties to the original.
    Initially, one is treated to a blast of sparkling grapefruit, with its sour greenness, tempered by a hint of sweetness from the mandarin. This invigorating, citrus melange is drawn to the heart by a nascent mint. Here, in the heart, the cool spearmint comes into its own with its sweet, green facets, and commingles with violet leaf, with its intense freshness and a hint of cucumber. Basil infuses the refreshing blend with a lively dusting of its lemon-like, savory herb. A very faint undercurrent of petro/gasoline can be sensed. Transition to the base, a rather ordinary, woods accord presents, and interplays with a light, almost airy, Haitian vetiver as well as a subtle leather. A placid drydown ensues. This high-quality composition is bright and fresh, and should prove to be very versatile. Having average projection and longevity, this scent will, indeed, shine in the spring, summer and fall.

    &

    Story by Paul Smith - One is initially treated to a blast of a lemony and slightly peppery, citric accord. The herbal and faintly woody aspects of ivy leaf intrude upon and commingle with this sparkling citrus, providing a crisp, leafy opening, which saunters to the awaiting middle. Here, in the heart, a floral potion from the sweet jasmine and cardboard-like mustiness of rose leaf tempers the jarring opening, and transitions to the welcoming base. An altering melange of grass-like and clean vetiver, white musk, with its laundered-linen illusion, as well as a rugged, mineral amber coalesce. With an errant metallic and faintly minty something fluttering about, the dry woodiness of cedar squires the cleanly mix to a refreshing drydown. This light and fresh composition has good projection and longevity, and will bloom in the spring, summer and fall. A very nice fragrance which can be had rather inexpensively.

    Thank you so much everyone for your help. Hubby decided to go with Terre D'hermes so far. It will probably be awhile before he tries another one of the other scents. He happily wears his fragrance just about every day. Thank you again!
