    Very interested (despite the awful bottles of the LeMale line) if this can capture both strong Mint, and strong neroli/orange blossom notes WITHOUT any excess candied-fruit aspects, or without the overly sweet base of LeMale.

    I'm so pumped up for this! Le Male is a great frag, and this to emphasize a more "icy" attitude, are you kidding me? If this turns out to preserve the essential sexy Le Male vibe, while dancing with the icy factor, we got a big hit here.

    Won't be running to pick this one up. But I will give it a fair shake and sample it when it comes out.

    Macys will carry it this spring, skipping over Kokorico & Kokorico Night.
    !00% certain of this.

    It's nice that Macy's will have it, but a shitload of dudes will be buying this, a little bit of exclusivity might have been nice. This could be my clubbing scent for warmer weather, and it'd suck if half the dudes be wearing this

    I got an email today from The Perfume Shop to say that this is now in their stores in the UK and Ireland.

    Smelled it today and it reminded me of a much sweeter version of Gucci Pour Homme 2, mixed with Joop Jump. Was alright, really fresh but nothing special. Was surprised how long it lasted too.

    Btw the perfume shop had the new Davidoff The Game, but forgot all about it.

    Oh cool. I'll check them both out tomorrow!

    The last time I enjoyed a Davidoff fragrance though, was...uh...never.

    Bottle looks awesome. Similar color design scheme to Pure Shot...which looks awesome.

    Boots have this in stock now also. I tried it an hour ago. I hate to use the word again, but it really is incredibly generic stuff. It reminds me a lot of Boss Bottled. Perfectly pleasant, but profoundly unremarkable.

    Haha!!! I am *so* not elitist! I rarely ever buy niche fragrances to be honest! What I don't like though, are wishy washy fragrances that smell like dozens of others. That's what Le Beau Male is to me.

    I know what you mean. If one needs to sport one of those wishy washy fragrances, at the very least, get them on a good price ( if you just want something for work). I get that vibe from fragrances from Canali, Dunhill, and St Dupont ( among many other brands).

    Those that have smelled it, do you like it more than Le Male?

    I'll keep it short and sweet. But no, it's not better than Le Male.

    I don't like Le Male at all, but at least it's unique and powerful. Le Beau Male is feeble and generic.

    I tried it the other day, and, although I like Le Male (and Fleur du Male, which I thought was an excellent flanker), I agree with Riverwide: I'm afraid Le Beau Male smelt very ordinary to me. 'Generic' was the first word that came to mind...

    Saw this at my local drug store, sadly no tester.

    The house's last male frag, KoKo whatever, was a HUGE flop for JPG. Then went back to the torso flacon immediately.

    Will snatch this up as soon as it comes available. Kokorico was available at Beauty Encounter soon after it was released. Have no doubt this will be available here soon.

    I am surprised to see such poor reviews of Kokoriko. I think its wonderful take on chocolate is quite well done. Dry down is quite beautiful.

    Was able to try it today, not good. Boring and generic, reminds me of one of the many sport scents that came out last year, just not sure which one.

    I'm surprised at the amount of generic references. This has a noticeable mint & absinthe accord in the top notes, which is hardly a common aspect of designer scents.

    I thought it was better than Le Male. Projection and longevity seem above average.
