I still love Bang! despite what anyone says. I also agree with the fans of Serge Noire.
Fleur du Male
Interesting spicy aquatic. However, I do admit that the quality of the ingredients are very low and it is synthetic to the max. I do not have my nose in all aquatic but this one is one of the most interesting smell I've encountered in the the genre.
If someone know a fragrance that smell like this but with much better ingredient quality please let me know
Love them all:

"I love fragrances because they provide a sheer endless variety: there is a scent for every occasion, mood or feeling. Standing before my collection in the morning matching a perfume to my needs is one of the most enjoyable things in my day"...I don't want to miss that...
Current Top 15 Summer: | Tom Ford Grey Vetiver | Shiseido Basala | Dior Eau Sauvage Extreme | Chanel Bleu | Guerlain Homme Intense | Armani Emporio Lui | Cartier Pasha | Guerlain Homme L'Eau Boisee | D&G Light Blue PH | Givenchy PH Blue Label | C.Herrera 212 Men | T.Mugler Ice*Men | Bvlgari Aqva PH | Kiton Black | Bvlgari PH Soir |
Dolce & Gabbana The One -- I just love its grapefruit, ginger, and a little bit musky and sweet amber combination. On my skin, it projects moderately and lasts 8+ hours in the warm weather. Though, it performs weaker in the colder seasons.
Definitely Fahrenheit 32 - it's just soo delicious , so pure and innocent yet so sexy and provocative. I'd rate it at 8/10.
Reformulated D&G PH - Although it may not be as good as the first formulation , I think it's still a decent scent , easy to wear , very versatile , great workhorse frag , can be worn in any season .
Hugo Boss Hugo Dark Blue
23 Positive Reviews • 8 Neutral Reviews • 14 Negative Reviews - ok, I can ALMOST understand that as it does have that synth problems that occur on me from time to time, but sometimes it reminds me never to discard it or not to have in my collection.
Dolce & Gabbana The One Gentleman
17 Positive Reviews • 11 Neutral Reviews • 11 Negative Reviews - I don't think at all that this is bad + many start "The One" threads, everyone seldom mention The One Gentleman which actually IS stronger and more potent version of the original.
Encounter by Calvin Klein.
Not much love for this one at 3 positive, 9 neutral, and 7 negative reviews. But I think it's pretty great, easily one of the best designer releases of 2012, IMO.
Current top 10:
1. L'Artisan Dzing!
2. Lorenzo Villoresi Yerbamate
3. Guerlain Bois d'Armenie
4. L'Artisan Al Oudh
5. Bond No. 9 Andy Warhol Silver Factory
6. Parfumerie Generale Bois Blond
7. Andy Tauer L'Air du Desert Marocain
8. Guerlain Derby
9. Geo F Trumper Eucris
10. Parfum d'Empire Ambre Russe
Guerlain Homme - 38 Positive Reviews • 36 Neutral Reviews • 20 Negative Reviews
Like Bleu de Chanel I think this was handicapped by the weight of expectation and history.
212 Sexy Man
Two would be Le Male and Joop! Homme. Both are sweet and can be cloying, but I love them.
Current top 10 (No order):
1. Pure Havane
2. Menthe Fraiche
3. Tobacco Vanille
4. L'Air Du Desert Marocain
5. Green Irish Tweed
7. Musc Ravageur
8. Tonka Imperial
9. Gucci Pour Homme II
10. Dior Homme Intense
In addition to both Bleu de Chanel and Bvgari Man I also like Christian Audigier for Him. This has been out for three years and has generated all of one neutral review here on bn. Sure, it's pretty synthetic but it does get quite a surprising amount of compliments when I do pull it out of the collection every now and then.
I don't have a signature fragrance. My signature changes a little bit every day, why shouldn't my fragrance?
Nautica Sunset Voyage:
Banderas: Seduction in Black:
Estee Lauder: Pleasures for Men:
Nickel: Enemy / Ennemi:
Paul Smith Man:
My Ultimate Top 5:
Paul Smith Man (2009)
Burberry London (2006)
Prada Amber pour Homme (2006)
Arpege pour Homme (2005)
Actually a number of them.
Hypnose Lancome does not have a massive follow-up, so is Kenzo Homme Boisee, and L'Homme Libre, the latter being badly bashed around here
Oh, and L'Air de Rien was negatively reviewed by one of the greatest signature of this forum, Mouchoir de Monsieur. I enjoyed the review immensely, but the way... but I enjoyed the perfume too!
À l'air libre les oiseaux ont eux aussi le vertige (camille)
Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme
Signature Rotation: A* Men, Pure Havane, Dunhill Pursuit, Varvatos Artisian, Guerlain Vetiver
I'll say what I have everytime one of these goes up
Armani Mania. the reviews here are actually slanted on the positive numbers but it has a bad rep here..as does many Armani's these days. Cedar is a favorite note of mine and the cedar and musk in this is pretty linear. It doesn't project greatly and won't knock your socks off but overall I find it kind of sexy and easy to wear.
Versace Jeans Couture--The bottle is incredibly tacky. It is synthetic. But there is something about this stuff that is green and intriguing and sexy to me. Everyone I knew that smelled it said the same thing....sexy is the word I hear most and see in reviews that are positive. Again, the minimal reviews here are positive but over the years when the Versace line has been mentioned in posts it has been panned pretty badly.

"As you walk down the fairway of life you must smell the roses, for you only get to play one round."
For me it's Kouros. It's special for me from the 80's . I'm confused about the dislike, because it is afaik the most sold men's fragrance in the world and i remember in the 80's it was really widely liked fragrance.
In 80's i think it was mostly young men's fragrance, typically it was not liked by the middle aged - old men back then.
Also, Narciso Rodriguez for Him
Again, Bleu de Chanel

Another one for Cavalli Man. My dad was wearing it and I eventually stole his bottle, and when I finished that I received another one for Christmas. Its not ground breaking or unique in any way but it is still a great frag. especially for the price. I like to mix it into my rotation just to change things up a bit. Perfect for the office or school and gets a lot of compliments from the ladies as well, not that it matters. I think Ill wear it today as a matter of fact!
I like the Idea of this thread. It just goes to show that you shouldnt follow too closely what other people TELL you to like and just go with what YOU like. Keep following your noses and tune everyone else out!
