    I'm going simple..Armani Mania. Pretty linear Cedar and Cashmere musk but I love it and think its great for work or casual weekends. Clean and crisp.

    Based strictly on what I know and like, among others: Ungaro II, Loewe para Hombre, Joint by Roccobarocco, Davidoff Relax, Boss Elements, Gucci Nobile, YSL pour Homme, Lanvin Vetiver and many more I can not remember right now, but I do have a feeling of "not getting much love" outside Basenotes.

    Lalique White. Encre Noir gets all the attention, but White is a beautiful summer fragrance.

    for the autumn season, my most underrated scent right now is Tilda Swinton Like this. Spectacular pumpkin gourmand. Recalls Autumn smells well.

    U know....Van Cleef & Arpels is underrated, cause like MIP smells fantastic, Feerie is an amazing fruity fragrance, Tsar and Pour Homme although not my cup of tea (too masculine) are perfect specimens of their genre and frankly I prefer them to the other ultra masculine classics. All of these are underrated imo.

    Creed MI. I just don't get why this is one of their most popular frags. I mean, it's not a bad fragrance, but I just don't get it's hype. All I smell is faint melon & sharp, dry saltwater with very poor longevity. Safe summer scent, I suppose, but have a hard time understanding why it's one of their most popular offerings.

    Many creeds (milesime bla bla) and many Bonds smell so cheap and synthetic.
    Mugler cologne.
    Bleu de Chanel.
    And many more...

    I have smelled and analyzed all of them and there isn't a single one I feel is worthy of retaining my interest. This, obviously, is merely my own opinion. I do not intend to present it in the guise of fact.

    Default Name an unnecessarily OVERRATED frag you know or own!!!

    So, this is the opposite of yesterday's thread I posted: http://www.basenotes.net/threads/312...n-Your-Opinion

    This time let's look at some fragrances that haven't lived up to their names. I'm talking about frags that have been highly regarded in the frag community but have not lived up to your expectations (in your opinion).

    I sometimes wonder why AdG is sooo highly regarded.....to me it's a fragrance that basically does nothing for me.

    This will be considered blasphemy.. But.. Dare I say it.. Pure Malt!! Luckily my bottle is still wrapped up.. So if the day comes where I fully decide that I don't like it I'll flip it. Have a decant of it that i sniff from time to time but can never decide if its for me or not..

    La Nuit De L'Homme by Yves Saint Laurent is too saccharine and teeters on the feminine side.
    And, to make matters worst, it is a humdrum composition, at best.
