    These are indeed all macho... but none of 'em are stinkers. Especially the last one.

    A lot of good ones mentioned - but "macho" and "stinkers" has a negative connotation. Many mentioned...Vintage Kouros, Vintage Giorgio for Men, Halston Z-14, Yatagan, and more are all fantastic scents.

    I guess that means I like to stink and throw my macho aroma around...!

    I wore Vintage Jovan Musk for Men the other day - splashed on. Now, as nice and clean as some aspects of that is (like Kouros), there is a bit of a skanky musk that makes it what it is. I guess to each their own. I love the fragrances listed and old-school Vintage Musks as well that make a statement.

    I get nothing, but...compliments!

    Cheers,

    ericrico

    Hats off to all who can handle Leather Oud. The tiniest spritz nearly killed me. Stinky as I can get is Cartier Declaration, which is not really a stinker at all...or do I just perceive it as not
