    Welcome!

    I think Noir de Reminiscence is a good choice, it's very strong and manly. Tom Ford Extreme is another option.

    Scent preferences are very personal and subjective. Without knowing his tastes I think the best gift you can offer is to take him fragrance shopping. That way you won't have to worry about wasting money on something he doesn't like.

    well the problem is where he stays & the marraige is in a countryside setting.further he is too busy in the wedding activities to come to the city.so as such he told me his preference & i need to make the purchase.that is more so the reason i posted in this forum as i myself is a newbie in this field.hoping for your suggestions.

    My collection is lacking in the "manly" type fragrances but if you think your brother might like the smell of leather then he should try L'Essence de Cerutti by Cerutti.

    What I really think you should do is buy 7-8 samples of the suggestions made in this post along with a note explaining that this is an "IOU." He could try all the samples and you then could purchase the fragrance that he likes the best at a later date.

    Does your brother like cars? Bulgari Black is very masculine and has a nice rubber note reminiscent of tires. In general, i like the idea of leathers, which are definitely masculine.

    ok...i dint smell CK IN2U but i hope none of the above is similar to that...he says that neither the smell was to his liking nor it lasted more than 2-3 hours...

    You shouldve tried Bois du Portugal by Creed. It wouldve been a proper gift.
