    Thanks. I got 1 full bottle, and I like it.

    Apparently, it's not as vintage vintage as I thought. The back of the box says "2004", so that must be the production year.

    It's a splash bottle, and what's funny is it's labeled as "eau de cologne",
    I don't think they ever released an EDC concentration of ARAMIS, ever.

    Good luck to the poor dude who'll splash this one all over like 4711. Haha.

    The 2oz spray bottle, I didnt get, but I'll get that too when I get back to the shop. Will try to post pics soon.

    I just applied just dabs to the wrist, and smeared my wrists on my neck. Like applying pure oils.

    It's good that way, for me, right now.
    Maybe I'll ramp up the application after a while.

    I have a couple of bottles of vintage Aramis Cologne, IMO it's the best Aramis there is. They are spray bottles.

    smell-bent horny little devil is good, too (in the absence of the untitled.)
    i've always thought that it (the little devil) is what lutens mkk wanted to be
    (and failed. namely: a horny little devil. ha.)

    re: knize 10 -- nothing brutal here. refined, suave, lovely leather, far as i'm concerned.

    i would recommend to get some really good indian oud.
    it will be all of what you want and then some.

    taha over at agaraura.com is a good source.
    (or go to the basenote oud forum and look around.)

    You're right. I really like it. Decanted about 10ml of it in a travel atomiser. And I've been using it for 2 days straight.

    Just 1 spray, 8 inches away from my chest. (I live in the tropics, gotta be careful with the amount of sprays)

    It lasts a long time.


    PS: A basenoter said the one I got was a pre 1980 vintage. I like it. Lucky find.

    I though they stopped making splash bottles in the 90s but maybe they still do with Aramis since a lot of older guys still buy it and like the splash they are used to. Does it say Eau de Cologne or just "Cologne". I found one of my dads bottles from the early 80s and it just says "Cologne". Makes it more manly that way.

    I love almost every fragrance mentioned on this thread. The only one I've found too much, even for me, is Mazzolari Lui. I've also never tried the infamous Secretions Magnifique. I don't think anyone has mentioned Juniper Ridge's Caruthers Canyon, which would fit into this category for sure. This thread has really made me want to try Masque Montecristo.

    Default Looking for a brutal parfume for a man

    I forgot to mention 'Mazzolari Mazzolari' which is more appealing than 'Lui'. It's a very nice 'golden' chypre, IMO. I wish my husband would wear it. Maybe it's not super brutal but it has real depth and presence.

    Give Lapidus pour Homme by Ted Lapidus a try, i find this one brutal and scarry. With a few sprays, you'll easily clear the room!

I'd never smelled Grey Flannel before and spied an open box of it. Some dolt had tested it and left the cap off in the box. What mindless disrespectful person was it? Who knows, they abound. Well, before putting the cap where it should be, over the sprayer, I "accidentally" sprayed my hand. I put the cap on and closed up the box properly.

    As I proceeded with the rest of my TJMaxx tour, I smell my hand. Interesting. I didn't realize I'd apparently dipped my hand in laundry detergent. No wait, maybe it was a box of dryer sheets.

    The present incarnation of Grey Flannel is an abomination to all who hold wearing a fine fragrance dear. it is nothing short of banal cleaning agent fragrance. I am so turned off by it, I will never even make an attempt to track down a vintage bottle of the stuff. I will never be able to disassociate my impression of Grey Flannel.

    I've never seen a laundry detergent that smells of violet leaves.
    Grey Flannel might not be for everyone but it's of good quality, including the new version of it.

    You talk only about old fragrances. Nobody mentioned about Versace. There is good and interesting fragrance like Versace Eros.
    Versace - pour Homme Oud Noir is really strong.
    Armani - Eau Pour Homme is strong too.

    I find Aramis very pleasantly sweet actually.

    For bitter and strong manly stuff, I'd say Kouros or Fahrenheit.

    Brutal (but not foul, i presume?) yet attractive to some?

    Leather Oud as mentioned above
    Secretions Magnifiques, also as mentioned above

    Serge Noire

    Also, 15 sprays of A*Men can be sufficiently brutal. Adjust according to the distance you want cleared of all biological matter.
