    Default What are the best Mancera colognes?

    I tried Cedrat Boise but its nowhere near Aventus quality and I have a bottle of blackline which is a masterpiece.

    What else from this line is great?

    I'm not a huge fan of this line precisely because it can't match the quality of great houses like Creed. That said, they make solid fragrances at budget niche prices, Cedrat Boise being one of them.

    Lemon Line is the only one I enjoyed.
    It was good for a lemon scent, but still too expensive for my taste.
    Many lemons on the market as good or better. Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche is one.
    Bright lemon to start.
    Dries down to a sweet, smooth lemon with the signature Mancera Musk.

    If I were to consider buying a Mancera, this one would be it.
    Longevity was average.

    Decent.

    What do you mean by quality? You need to try black line!

    Of the 29 bottles I own from this line which is every one except one, I'd say Silver Intensitive Aoud, Wild Leather and Kumkat Wood.

    I made the mistake of purchasing Black Intensive Aoud (at a discount) it's not intensive, neither does it have any noticeable aoud. It's an ultra-feminine turkish rose and now a Xmas gift to my mother.

    Kumkat Wood is a good one. Own and enjoy Roses Vanille as well. Cedrat Boise has always been a good one.

    A co-worker has Black to Black which is stunning and hard to find. My favorite still remains Sand Aoud.

    Aoud Black Candy was a decent fragrance, very smooth transition, but I don't care for that rose note, especially blended with amber, so thumbs down from me. Still, a nice licorice fragrance for someone.
    Just because a fragrance is expensive, doesn’t necessarily make it smell better than a cheaper one.

    I can still pray in the U.S.A. (For now, anyway.)

    I own Wind Wood, Kumkat Wood, and 2 bottles of Cedrat Boise. I plan on purchasing Roses & Chocolate next. As with many houses, some scents are really good, some not.

    I do like the quality of Mancera though ... even the ones I don't care for.

    I have really liked Black Line and have considered purchasing it. It reminds me a little of Montale Musk to Musk only better. Anyone else like this one?

    I own Black Candy and Aoud Cafe. I love the lush licorice I get from Black Candy. But I still haven't been able to wrap my brain around aoud cafe. I loved Sand Aoud when I sampled, too.

    I won a bottle and to me its not only the best Mancera cologne but also a masterpiece. Beastly longevity and sillage.

    I like Aoud Cafe from this line. I don't think it's the greatest thing since sliced bread, but I quite like it a lot. That's the only one I've tried from Mancera though.
