    In the past, I would have said $$$ Amouage Gold man, an enormous incensy floral oriental, but Amouage has been watering down its stuff, so the current status of this is unknown.

    At the other extreme, the very fresh Paco Rabanne Metal, very green, which I think has been sadly discontinued, though it can be found easily on the internet.

    Easy to find, Aramis 900 and Caron troisieme homme have prominent flowers, though I'd say are not primarily florals (being respectively a patchouli-resin and a musky fougere). And of course, the very cheap Anais Anais (original) is now a perfect clean masculine, though it's still marketed to women.

    I like florals for men and I think more should be produced.

    Among others (in my opinion): Ungaro II, Esencia Loewe, as well as certain disparate floral notes in the Infusion variations by Prada.

    +1 to vtg Amouage Gold man.

    Few other other good ones - Portrait of a Lady, Geranium Pour Monsieur, Acqua di Parma Colonia & Amouage Lyric Man. On the cheaper front - but still of great quality - Gianfranco Ferre Ferre for man, Serge Lutens Cedre, Givenchy Insense & Tenere by Paco Rabanne to name a few.

    My fave men's floral would be Dior Homme. It's classified as such because of Iris, although to me it does not have that "typical" floral vibe. Good stuff.

    Not all of these are listed as florals, but the most prominent notes are mostly florals or note combinations which give these fragrances a floral aura or vibe. My personal favourites are Dia Man, Anucci, Iquitos, Ungaro Pour L'Homme, Carons le 3rd, Ricci Club and Insense. Go for it!

    An excellent list - while I've not tried all of them (Ho Hang, Knize Two, Milk of Flowers have so far eluded my schnoz) there is not one out of the other 14 to which I wouldn't add a hearty +1.

    I recently tried a sample of this again from LuckyScent ( a few weeks ago ) and it seemed to last a good amount of time on my skin. The OP might want to do the same then send them an email to confirm that he will receive the same.

    Unfortunately I have never gotten florals from this fragrance. Every trial has resulted in smelling like Johnsons Baby Shampoo. As a lover of vintage Anucci I was hoping to find a replacement in Gold.

    "Masculine" florals (like Reflection Man) smell bad to me, so I when I'm in the mood for flowers, I simply reach for a unisex floral like Maison Francis Kurkdjian's Aqua Universalis Forte.

    Givenchi Amarige

    But seriously.... I really like it. And Poison

    But to answer I say Lyric, Fleur du Male, Colonia Assoluta, Fahrenheit..of course.
    And the great Muscs Koblaican by S luthens, oh yeah

    And I always thought that iris is actually from the root of the plant, not the flower, which is why it isn't a type of smell typically thought of as floral and can smell quite rooty and carroty. But maybe that's just me.

    All of the Hermes Jardin line are unisex and I own all four. Jardin Sur Le Nil is my favorite and the most versatile, but Jardin Sur Le Toit is like a floral bomb. I'm not exactly sure it's masculine, but if you're looking for floral, it's up there with the best.

    Gold Man is quite the thing, but for me the slightly inferior option compared to both Gold Woman and Ubar. Which leads me to my main candidate, Iquitos - a cheerful aldehydic floral along jasmine-rose lines.

    Hmm.

    Most of the ones listed aren't actually florals. Most good masculine fragrances have a solid floral component in the heart notes but jt doesn't mean they're florals. A prominent individual floral note like rose, jasmine, iris, geranium, etc, also doesn't mean the overall composition is a floral

    As far as actual florals go: Amouage Gold Man and Givenchy Insense.

    Egoiste, Rochas Globe, Minotaure, Wicked by Bijan (very close to lily of the valley), Carven Homme, Ungaro III, Insense, and Mitsuoko. I absolutely love masculine florals and these are the most fun for me so far.
