    Many others have given great recommendations. I concur especially with Anucci for Men and Iquitos, but I'd not call them modern, per se.
    Hmmm... I'll try. I suppose that when I think of 3rd man for example, it seems to progress in a sort of classical way? classical perfumery if that makes sense? As in, I get citrus in the front, the florals in the middle and a sort of vanilla based drydown. On the other hand, I have say Dior Homme, which has a strong iris in the front which lasts in some way to almost the drydown but it is framed by a sort of chocolate and leather thing that to me seems like a modern idea... maybe its not, I'm not the most educated on the topic. I guess I was just asking if there was some really fresh new take on the idea.

    As to why I am asking about "masculine" florals: I understand the idea that scents are not "gendered" as such. And I believe to talk more about the topic would take a long time, I also do believe that, when it comes to art, working within certain parameters can unlock creativity where it wasn't required before and thus create more interesting end projects. So even if it is just an matter of marketing, I find it interesting to see what perfumers come up with when faced with the problem of "selling flowers to men" so to speak. Does that make sense?

    I'm going through the recommendations, there are so many! Some (egoiste) I've been looking to sample, others (Bulgari pour Homme) I've actually owned for a while but only after taking a liking to 3rd man did I really notice the florals (previously I enjoyed the scent for its sort of polite quiet fizzy grey tea/aldehydic quality). Thanks for the replies!

    I will also add Tom Ford's Neroli Portofino. It's a fantastic masculine floral scent
