    I would agree with Slayerized and his mention of Francesco Smalto PH, in addition to VC&A PH and Quorum

    A scent that makes others feel inferior.

    When you smell it on a man, it will make you think "damn that guy's testicles must weigh at least 5 pounds!"

    Just curious what you guys think.

    I'd say

    Hollywood Macho - Knize 10
    60's Blue Collar Macho - Brut
    70's Macho (Europe) Azzaro (US) Halston Z14
    70's Macho (Burt Reynolds) Aramis
    80's Macho - Kouros or Antaeus
    90's Macho - Cool Water, more for the image and branding than the actual smell
    00's Macho - any of the Ouds - on the Nasomatto tip
    Today's Macho - doesn't really because we're all too emancipated and trying to smell like candy.
    Possibly tone deaf..

    Welcome, Tucker -

    Nicely said.

    For me - Vintage Kouros. It was my scent of the day and evening yesterday...the ice pack on my 'lads' to reduce the swelling says it all!

    Cheers,

    “Some perfumes are as fragrant as an infant’s flesh, sweet as an oboe’s cry, and greener than the spring; While others are triumphant, decadent or rich; Having the expansion of infinite things, like ambergris and musk, benzoin and frankincense, which sing the transports of the mind and every sense.”

    Haven't thought about it but by taking a glimpse at this page, I would say that: amongst the ones named:

    Slumberhouse Norne
    Rochas Macassar
    Amouage Epic
    Chanel Antaeus

    Are great suggestions that perfectly fit the title of the thread.

    Les Copains (mens).The very first release in a tall navy blue box with silver writing and an emblem of a crown with a rope knot underneath. Astonishingly, it's not even listed on basenotes or fragrantica ! It contains about 5 different animal notes. I think it was a late 70's release? Very strong stuff...beautiful !
    Also, Cellini from Faberge. See the reviews for this one.

    Kouros.

    Though, it's still not as badass as

    Van Cleef and Arpels pour Homme.

    It's a toss up for me between these two. Naturally, I could have chosen the more obvious KOUROS, but on my skin, these two, as different as they are one from another, are take no prisoner powerhouses.

    Just add a touch of body heat and these will launch off your skin like the beasts that they are.

    That red top Ted lapidus in the photo above is some PRICEY stuff !!! Out of the realm of my budget.
    My personal pick beyond the obvious vintage Kouros that I love dearly would be the somewhat hard to find but super masculine : Balenciaga Portos... awesomeness bottled

    Powerful scents are used to be for real men, but I don´t think that an alpha man does care about what fragrances he wears:

    -Alain Delo wore his own scents although he made an advertisement for Dior
    -Serge Gainsborg wore Caron puH (He wrote a song about this fragrance), Amazonas Hermes and VC&A pH
    -Jose Mourinho doesn´t wear any fragrances, but he loves shave creams. I would recommand him Rive Gauche pH
    -Tom Ford personally likes oud based scents
    -Sean Connery wore Jicky and Habit Rouge
    -Bernard Arnault (CEO of LVMH) wears Eau Sauvage

    You see that many alpha men don´t wear powerful fragrances...
