Carbone de Balmain
Thread: Any good tasty night out scents?
Well at the moment i usually slap on some le male for a night out, i know its extremely popular but i absolutely love it! The vanilla makes it just so tasty!
But i am looking to pick up another fragrance soon for night outs and i want something masculine, tasty and overall just very nice and fresh smelling.
Any suggestions would be nice and i cant decide about what to buy next?

Apart from the ones already named I would like to suggest Escada Magnetism for Men. It is an absolute night time classic. I'm not sure if it is still in production.
Its a real TASTY stuff!!

If You want a tasty AND fresh combo, go for Guerlain L'Instant (not the extreme, although it is wonderful) you have a fresh citrus and a lovely smooth cocoa note hovering underneath. Also, Prada Amber Intense works both ways but from a completely different angle with the clean shaved soapy barbershop smell, mixed with a dark mysterious amber and myrrh pus as it's an EDP it lasts and lasts. The new Eau Savage EDP fits the bill too but its maybe slightly too mature for a night club setting, but whatever it smells friggin' good and will stand the body heat.
I have worked in nightclubs for a good part of my life when I was a student and before I really started to take interest in the fragrance world Versace the Dreamer REALLY did the trick as a cheap(ish) club fragrance as it gets better as the night goes on and the rather suspect top notes fade to something that make women swoon.
The trick is NOT to smell like everybody else, so stay away from the usual young crowd scents and go for something slightly different and of a higher quality.
Le Male and 1million actually make me feel ill. Too sweet and too popular. The same goes for Euphoria for women; I cannot stand it on a girl in a club or anywhere.
Tobacco Vanille and SpiceBomb are quite masculine and TASTY.
If you want something less masculine, but REALLY TASTY, Spiritueuse Double Vanille is the one. Makes you want to eat your own neck.
If you love Le Male, I might suggest Caron Pour Un Homme. To me, Le Male is really just adding a strong Mint Note to Pour Un Homme. Le Male is sort of the loud younger brother of Caron Pour Un Homme, which is more natural, classy, and to me has a much nicer vanilla note. Also can be bought at very reasonable prices.
Couldn't you try something classical like Chanel Pour Monsieur Concentree?
