    Default Floral Like Reflection Man

    I tried Reflection Man the other day, and I absolutely loved the floral note. It reminds me of the middle florals I love so much in other fragrances (e.g. Dior Homme, Chergui). The only problem I have with RM, is that the dry down doesn't get much deeper. I want more wood/musk/amber to mellow it out after 6 or so hours. Do you have a recommendation on a fragrance with a similar floral note but with deeper basenotes in the drydown?

    Fleur de Male was also my first thought although it doesn't get really deep.

    I tried Fleur de Male today. Thanks again Nexus6 and JourneymanDave. What a great ride. The floral stretches my limits but then the fougere notes kick in and temper it back. What a great ride. I bought a small bottle - it'll be a great weekend scent. The bottle is pretty cool too in a campy sorta way..

    Frederic Malle Geranium Pour Monsieur sounds like it would be close to what you are looking for.

    Try APOM Pour Homme while you're at it.

    Great, was hoping this would be something like what you had in mind. Fleur de Male's not for everyone but if you like Reflection Man, it's not a huge leap.

    Enjoy!

    Guerlain habit rouge. The drydown has a similar effervescent floral vibe that really bears some commonality with reflection. Not the same scent, but definitely evokes a similar feel if you enjoy the heart of reflection.

    Thanks for the additional feedback. I'll revisit my Habit Rouge and Geranium PM samples and check out APOM PH and Amouge Gold. That's some homework I can get into!
