    Hi, guys!


    ---------------> Puredistance M
    (Parfum extrait)

    Another great fragrance! Unisex? I feel it leans towards the masculine side. Longevity was really great (about 16h) and sillage was also good. Projection was about the usual 3-4h. However, I do think this isn´t the most versatile fragrance. The opening is awesome but the drydown, in spite of being really good, it´s not as good.

    Scent: 8.85
    Longevity: 9.25
    Sillage: 8.5
    Projection: 8
    Uniqueness: 8.25
    Versatiliy: 7.75
    Scent masculinity: 8
    ---Overall: 8.32

    Would I buy it? Yes!

    Hi, guys!

    Time for the last Frapin´s fragrance of this package:


    ------------->Frapin 1270
    (EDP)

    Last fragrance from Frapin regarding this pack. Man, the opening is so good! In fact, the scent is very, very good until drydown, which, in my opinion, altough beeing quite nice, is kind of feminine. Some say this is for older man?! Honestly, I can´t see why…! The main problem of this fragrance is sillage and projection. I got about 2-3 h and a close to the skin scent, overall. It´s rich and you smell quality! Longevity was about 9h. I do, however, think that this is not the most manly scent. Unisex.


    Scent: 9.27
    Longevity: 8
    Sillage: 7.25
    Projection: 7
    Uniqueness: 8.25
    Versatiliy: 8
    Scent masculinity: 7.5
    ---Overall: 7.94

    Would I buy it? YES!!

    Hey Johnny, was that Wonderwood or 2 Man that you sampled recently? I see you have 2 Man in your overall ranking list, but the title of your review says Wonderwood.

    Hello, guys!


    ---------------> Commes des Garcon 2 (EDP)

    Ok, second fragance of CdC! Feminine opening, here. In fact, overall the fragrance is clearly toward the feminine side. The scent is quite good, although on my skin it doesn´t smell as good o on paper. Although having a slightly better longevity (13h) and sillage than Wonderwood, CdC seems, so far, to have close to the skin scents. Projection was a bit timid during 2,5 - 3 h. And this one is shaper than Wonderwood! The ink note is interesting.

    I must state that, in spite of not loooving the scent on my skin, I´d love to smell this on a woman! ; )


    Scent: 8.45
    Longevity: 9.25
    Sillage: 7.35
    Projection: 7.25
    Uniqueness: 8.5
    Versatiliy: 8
    Scent masculinity: 6.25
    --- Overall: 7.86

    Would I buy it? Maybe.

    Ok, guys, time for one fragrance I was really eager to test:


    ------------> Parfume Generale Aomassai (EDT)


    I have good news and bad news. Let me start for the bad ones: projection and sillage. This fragrance projects nicely for a max of 2 to 2 and half hour. Sillage is somewhere between soft and moderate. Good news: Longevity is good – about 10h. Scent? Great!!! I see this it being versatile and toward masculine side, really (at least on my skin it is, quite, to be honest). Really love this scent! What a great gourmand! The caramel and hazelnut are great, here. Strangely, I can´t find much incense...! Maybe it´s my nose (or skin...).

    But the scent is very, very good!!! Really! And quite unique! I wish it was stronger…! It´s a shame.


    Scent: 9.23
    Longevity: 8.40
    Sillage: 7.5
    Projection: 7
    Uniqueness: 8.45
    Versatiliy: 8
    Scent masculinity: 8.15
    ---Overall: 8.10

    Would I buy it? YES!!

    Very true. I now think the drydown with Ambre Narguille as one of the most revoltingly unpleasant of all fragrances.

    Another person with a disregard for Ambre Narguille...I kind of agree with all the rankings except for Ambre Narguille; I'd switch Ambre Preciaux to that spot on my list

    Me too.

    While I don't have the intense disdain for AN that you and deadidol seem to possess, it's kind of a one trick pony to me and the trick gets old fast.

    I would definitely move Ambre Precieux up that list!

    Hey, guys!

    Lol, some AN haters, here! This thread would always please some and displease others, regarding some fragrances. One thing that maybe it´s not too clear is that this is an OVERALL raking, not a SCENT raking.

    For example, Ambré Preciaux, Amomassai, Wonderwood, Eau Duelle and 1270 (all of them below the top 5, some even below top 10), had a rating above 9, regarding scent! More specifically:

    1270 - 9.27
    Amomassai - 9.23
    Ambré Preciaux - 9.13
    Eau Duelle - 9.12
    Wonderwood. 9.02


    I do prefer these fragrances to others that had better OVERALL rating. The question here is that there are several parameters to acess. The "big 3", Longevity, Sillage and Projection, most of the times, make the difference to put a fragrance below or above others.


    I will do, like the previous group tested, several rakings and considerations, once I finish testing them.


    Take care!

    Not disdain per se for AN, but i feel it's not FB worthy - compared to Ambre Preciaux, Ambre 114, or for that matter even compared to Montale Blue amber, which I own...

    As is the case with every thread - you can ignore the "i like this" / "why is it ranked so high" etc etc - this is after all your thread & ppl jumping in should remember that...Obviously i expect you to move the Ambre Preiciaux up the ladder, all others can be ignored

    I know, buddy! But what I wrote it´s true. When I see guys I really appreciate seeing in their Youtube chanels, saying they prefer Interlude, and rank it as the best Amouage fragrance, I can´t understand why! Plus, I think to myself: how can they say that Interlude is best than Chergui?

    But like other things in life, to each his own!

    Hey, guys!



    ------------>Commes des Garcon Man 2 (EDT)


    First I must say this was one of a group of scents that I was not that eager to test. Why? Because of the incense. However, I decided to give it a chance. And I´m glad! This is a real man´s scent! Like I said, I´m not a fan of incense fragrances, but I have to say that this fragrance is unique and great. I love it! Maybe it´s my nose, but I don´t see it as very natural, as I find it a bit synthetic. But I really love it. The only problem I think this fragrance has is the fact of being a bit weak in terms of projection. Sillage is average, though. Longevity was about 10-11h, which I consider good. It is, in my opinion, versatile and modern. Overall, and against what I expected, this is very, very good. Great woody fragrance. I got the vetiver and leather, clearly and of course, incense. But, the funny part is that I find it tolerable! Certainly a fragrance to take in account from now on.


    Scent: 9.31
    Longevity: 8.65
    Sillage: 7.65
    Projection: 7
    Uniqueness: 8
    Versatiliy: 8
    Scent masculinity: 9.5
    ---Overall: 8.29

    Would I buy it? YES!!

    Time for one of the fragrance I was REALLY eager to test!



    -------------> Amouage Reflection Man (EDP)

    Man! This is, overall, an awesome scent! There´s something soapy about it, which is something I usually don´t like, but, WOW, this is pure class and quality! A very clean scent, which is something I also tend no to like. But I love this! Projection and sillage are good, but not heavy on my skin. I must say I was hoping for a bigger longevity (got about 13-14h). One of the most versatile fragrance I know. I read some reviews saying that this was similar to Le Male. My friends, I really love Le Male, honestly, but Reflection is, in my opinion, incomparably better! My favourite scent form this package, so far! Not very masculine, though.

    Scent: 9.70
    Longevity: 9.20
    Sillage: 8.15
    Projection: 8
    Uniqueness: 8.60
    Versatiliy: 9.40
    Scent masculinity: 7.75

    Was somehow thinking Reflection might end up on your top 3 or 5, glad to see that as the # 1 so far...Under-rated amouage imho, but I find it quite sophisticated...

    Agreed, my friend. Personally I don´t see it as feminine fragrance. Some say it´s for young girl. While I agree it´s not the most masculine scent, it´s masculine enough.

    Merry CHRISTmas to all!



    Next Diptyque fragrance:



    ------------->Diptyque Volutes (EDP)


    Overall, Volutes is quite good! I got about 15h of longevity! I do find, however, this fragrance could be stronger.Projection was nice for the first 3-4h. After that it started fading. Sillage, however is good. At first I though it was too much powdery for my taste, but in the end I came to think it´s not that bad. Although different, I get a bit of "Back to Black" vibe, although I think the latter´s quality is superior. Must say I love Volutes! Good surprise, here.


    Scent: 9.24
    Longevity: 9.35
    Sillage: 8
    Projection: 7.70
    Uniqueness: 7.65
    Versatiliy: 7.8
    Scent masculinity: 7.70
    --- Overall: 8.20

    Would I buy it? YES!!


    Next fragrance: Comme de Garcons Black
