    I'd rather say the one I love much stronger than (seemingly) others is Aigner Black. A terrific scent.

    I think Bvlgari Man is quite nice, and don't get the bad reviews and lack of respect it seems to have.
    Wife likes that one alot too. She chose it as best out of several men's colognes I asked her opinion on.

    Deauville Pour Homme by Michel Germain.

    A great fragrance that often can be found cheap, yet it gets almost no love on Basenotes.

    Long time lurker, first time poster:

    I think it is a great reflection of these forums that a discussion like this can be had (ON THE INTERNETZ!!!) without a massive flame-war errupting! Bravo!

    That said, I think a lot of "over-rated" scents are actually just popular scents that become too familiar to the nose. Such as pleasant company that has stayed beyond their welcome.

    I agree wholeheartedly. Thank you for your bravery. I think it smells like hand lotion, specifically one called Aquamarine. My mother used it back in the day.

    Here, probably Pure Malt? Didn't it have its own extra section even, just for Pure Malt discussion, or was that something else? It's not a bad scent though but I'd consider it massively overrated. Perhaps Aventus too, but I have not tried it yet, it could be amazing.

    Aventus is nice...but not so as to talk about it on every thread on every board every day every where....

    One persons overrated is another persons underrated. Therefore its a pointless thread. As pointless as your comment.
