Thread: Custo Barcelona - Man
Something intrigued me about Custo Man about a year ago, but I couldn't put my finger on it - but my wife disliked it intensely, she told me not to buy it or if I did, not to wear it anywhere around her.
So today I came across it again on sale, I had some of it sprayed on my wrist, I didn't like it at first, but it grew on me in the next 10 minutes - so I bought it. Stength is very good, so far it has lasted 11 hours on my wrist.
I now realise that my wife is totally consistent. Custo Man is in the same sort of floral style as Trumper's Fougena and Fleur du Male - the former she's never liked, the latter she put her foot down and said "Don't you dare buy that".
I think Custo Man is the sort of scent a guy would wear when trying to show his sensitive side - shame it drives my wife insensitive.
Has anybody else tried it?
Or when she goes to the hairdresser.
It certainly is limiting.
But at least I now have three scents she dislikes strongly to rotate on those occasions.
P.S. Do you realise that if you hadn't kindly responded to perhaps the last 10 or 15 threads on my new scents here, I'd probably have a record for the most number of postings with zero responses?

I tried it while on holiday in Tenerife last year. The green one, by FK, reminded me of Reflection Man. Very good at the price. The blue one 'Pure' was similar to Diesel Fuel for Life, a pleasant light but persistent youthful fruity scent.

I've tried it and thought it was quite nice just not my style - I do struggle with intensely synthetic frags. It does come to mind from time to time though, I may give in to a small bottle at some point
Also, it's a very worthy alternative to Reflection Man. Custo B Man punches way above its weight IMO and I'm surprised it doesn't get more love. Perhaps limited distribution is a problem....
I actually liked the women's Custo scent a lot (which is unusual, as I'm not fond of a lot of women's scents) so I bought six bottles, one for my wife and the remainder for presents.
Wow that's super cheap - I can't say no at that price.
Custo Man is a nice frag; strong, floral, a lot of neroli, very Fleur Du Mâlish.
I've never heard of this one Renato. I'll have to check it out.
Btw, do you find Perfume Connection has some good deals?

Wanted!!! Rectoverso Tea Tobacco by Ulric de Varens. PM Me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you do go by there, check out the mens 24Karat by Joachim something or other. It's a spanish scent currently costing $14.50. It is deceptive because it turns into a real powerhouse (I wrote here about my 11 year old nephew totally outpowering me with this scent).
They have a very good European selection and other scents not carried by mainstream shops - Bogart, Dali, Lapidus, Jacomo - without which my comments here would have been a lot sparser.
