    Default Smelled Reflection Man today

    Let it be known, I'm new to this, live in a small town and I'm testing frags out that I hear about on here, You Tube, etc. I have ordered some samples and decants to try.
    I got a decant of Relection Man in today. I must say this smells great! It smells nothing like Le Male to me and nothing like I have smelled before. I haven't worn it yet, but I will soon. I hope it smells good on my skin.

    It doesn't smell like LeMale, but it does have a similar vibe.

    It is a nice one for sure. It gives me different wearings each time I try my sample (probably worn it 10 times now). Sometimes I get pool chemicals and florals, others a sweet dry down, others a beautiful jasmine floral. Really depends on skin and temperature I guess.

    I agree as well.

    I think it gives off a similar vibe but, I get plenty of jasmine and not hint of vanilla. Lovely stuff and pretty underrated in my opinion.

    Did you like Le male? . If you like lavender then you will like this.

    One of my top Amouages, even moreso (gasp!) than Jubilation XXV. I see/smell the Le Male similarity but it is not so close, the same way Boellis' Panama 1924 smells similar to Le Male (or is it to Reflection Man?) but with not-too-subtle differences.

    I did not enjoy this one. I was getting over a cold when I sampled it so maybe I'll try again.

    It's funny, because I still remember the first time I wore Reflection. I remember what I was wearing, and the day it was. It truly was a memorable experience. I don't think I can say the same for any other fragrance, as far as remembering first time wearings. It was my first Amouage, and the only one I've owned. I've had many samples of several other Amouages tho. Right now, I have a few samples of Interlude. This is a really nice fragrance as well, easily full bottle worthy. For now, I'll make due with my official 2.5 ml samples, but I'm sure one day, I'm spring for a full bottle.

    Seems like I get a hint of rasperry; something red woven into the vanilla. Most most enjoyed vanilla fragrance is Invasion Barbare; the lavender is very clean and smooth. I will retest reflection again.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    I think its a great scent and does not behave like Le Male. There are similarities but its a far cry from being similar to Le Male, much, much nicer. RM is perfect for a spring or fall day and one of my all time favorites.

    Just sampled. I never really liked le male but I love reflection man. It runs parallel to le male but is different. I will purchase a full bottle soon.
