    Lightbulb Le Male VS The best masculine Lush fragrance

    I've paid a recent visit to the nearest Lush branch and have found Breath of God and Dirty really appealing and unique scents. Both are around $50 for 1 oz. I guess this is from higher concentrations of essential/perfume oils. Which do you recommend I get, Le Male or a Lush fragrance? Im not limiting myself to the two choices (Breath and Dirty) I mentioned above. If the latter, which Lush fragrance should I get? The main factors would be compliments and the fact that I live in a tropical country.

    Dirty is my favourite Lush scent, and i prefer it to Le Male. I live in a tropical country as well and find Dirty to be a comfortable wear in the heat.
    ointments and perfume delight the heart....

    Le Male >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Any Lush. For some reason the lush fragrances are unique and different in an off putting way to me. I had to scrub them off when I tested them.

    As much as I enjoy Breath of God from an artistic, unique, bizarre stand point I'd still choose Le Male (did I just say that? )

    I have sampled out most of the Lush Fragrances (sister works there). Although they are superbly high quality (better than that of Le Male), and complex unique scents, I still prefer Le Male!

    This is my opinion as well. Breath of God is the only fragrance with a big dose of calone in it that I love.
    My Top Ten:

    1: Guerlain - Habit Rouge
    2: Guerlain - Jicky
    3: Guerlain - Mouchoir de Monsieur
    4: Guerlain - Shalimar
    5: Knize - Knize Ten
    6: Caron - Yatagan
    7: Caron - Pour Un Homme
    8: Jean Desprez - Bal a Versailles
    9: Yves Saint Laurent - M7
    10: Salvador Dali - Dali Pour Homme

    Le Male for me. I am a big fan of mint, so I blind bought the body spray version of Dirty and didn't like it at all. Lush's stuff just seems a bit weird to me. I didn't think mint was the dominating note in Dirty, instead, I got this weird musty mineral/herbal smell with a dryer sheet type lavender thrown in. Definitely not what I wanted in a mint fragrance. I've still yet to find the type of mint I'm hunting (sweet candy type mint, ala mint ice cream or gum. I'm going to try Demeter's Mint Julep next, as I've heard it's similar to what I'm looking for).

    Anyway, Le Male>>>Dirty by far.

    Depending on where you live Le Male is a big Yuck in tropical climate.

    I love Lush fragrances, but their gender labeling is way off. Many of the women's fragrances I've tried are more masculine than feminine and most of the unisex fragrances I've tried are very feminine. Another thing about Lush fragrances is let them settle for at least 5 minutes. They smell like crap on the initial spray. Not to mention that they're potent as potent can be. I'd go as far to say that the original version of LeMale would be in for a projection and longevity battle with many of their fragrances.

    Le Mâle and many of the Lush fumes that I've tested are equally rough round the edges, but Le Mâle remains much easier to wear than stuff like Breaff of God, Karma, Lust, etc. I might buy these Gorilla scents to experience and analyse, but not to wear.
