    Regrettably, I found Mauboussin Homme by Mauboussin, despite being a well-blended composition, somewhat dark and sensuous, had both limited and subpar projection and longevity, given its rather sparse density.

    I'm sure it's been mentioned before, but your math is useless. It having a higher percentage of good ratings means nothing when there is a smaller sample size. Just like a fragrance with 100 ratings, 75 of them positive would have the same percentage of good reviews as one with 3 out of 4 positive reviews.

    Anyway, I'll check it out for sure. It sounds interesting regardless of the math.

    I'd advise against this stuff. Even at $20 a bottle I don't think it's worth it....

    I agree. I blind bought it about 18 months ago, and it does very little for me. The scent is certainly inoffensive, but the juice seems kind of weak, fairly synthetic, and very generic.
    I like the weight the bottle has, but that's about it.

    Some fragrances are under-hyped for a reason.
