    Default The manliest of them all?

    I'm curious...what would you consider to be the "manliest" scent out there. I'm talking about the one that just screams MAN!! The kind that has massive polar love/hate reactions. The kind that roundhouse kicks all other male frags in the face. The kind that (not to sound too crude) challenges all other frags to "whip 'em out and let's measure." It can be a scent you own or even one that you hate. I'm not necessarily looking to buy one...I'm just curious what you all think.

    Have not worn it in a while but I remember Sung Homme as smelling of ashtray and soap. Suiting a private dick, drowning his sorrow in a dive bar, haggling with an ageing hooker.

    Straight to Heaven, by Kilian, even though it's technically unisex, is pretty manly.

    In my experience, Ted Lapidus for Men (1978) is the most masculine.

    Fumidus by Profumum - One is initally treated to a dram of aromatic scotch whisky, with its tempered harshness harnessed by the indolic sweetness of peat. A nascent, barnyardy aroma of cigar tobacco peeks through as well as a hint of abrading iodine. Medicinal birch bark elbows itself into the mix with its medicinal, wintergreen character and its hint of effervescent birch beer. The sweet, minty intrusion nicely counterbalances the sharpness of the scotch accord. Magical vetiver joins the fray with its rich earthiness and deep muskiness. A strong smokiness envelops the comforting blend. The robust vetiver likewise imparts its syrup, hay and tabacco offerings. A faint armpit body odor and dank woodiness also present. A titillating drydown ensues. This manly composition has excellent projection and longevity - easy on the trigger is the catchphrase here.

    The Mandom video is fantastic. We might have a winner from the video alone Though...Sex Panther has some quality to it. Some interesting stuff here. A few scents I haven't even heard of before.

    Van Cleef & Arpels Pour Homme. Not even a hint of femininity, vanity, or self-doubt. No idea if it's been reformulated over the years, I only own the vintage stuff.
