    Kouros vintage, which smells like a male locker room. to be honest, I've never entered a female locker room, but I doubt it smells the same.

    The most masculine is probably something like Bvlgari Man, or 212.. something like that, that would never work on a woman. Then you have great masculines like Polo, Knize Ten, Givenchy Gentleman, Kouros... Could go on for a while. But to answer the thread title- most masculine, as in as far from feminine as possible, probably Bvlgari Man, imo.

    Depends what "type" of masculine but i find brut and terre d hermes to be very masculine.

    Anything in the style of G-Man by Gainsboro, vintage Trussradi Uomo, Drakkar Noir, Salvador Dali pour Homme, Engligh Blazer by Yardley and Duc de Vervins by Houbigant (the latter two very similar to Drakkar Noir, without just being simple copies of it)

    As most times I'm pretty close to Ken. I tink most masculine are all those Drakkar types. Nobile Gucci and the like.

    Brutally masculine in a seriously macho way to me would probably be One Man Show Gold Edition or Kouros.

    The most masculine fragrance I've ever smelled: Old Spice as I'll forever associate it with my father

    The most masculine fragrance(s) I own: Baie de Genievre, Bois du Portugal, Sartorial, Colonia Essenza, English Fern. Most of my absolute favorites are what I consider very masculine, which is kind of surprising since I rather enjoy feminine notes particularly floral notes.

    I take this question to mean the fragrance that you can't imagine a woman being able to wear successfully, and smells great on a man.

    So...(all vintage)

    Azzaro pour Homme

    Kouros
    Lapidus pour Homme
    Quorum
    Polo
    Or Black
    Knize 10

    In my wardrobe that I enjoy : Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme ^sticker bottle^ and Dolce & Gabbana By Man
    When I wear em its either I'm the scholarly yet dandy dude in a leather armchair with a cigar OR the machochistic a-hole cross between a 70s pornstar and the Gucci man Tom Ford made up in the 90s. Yep, all in my head haha.

    In my wardrobe that I don't enjoy : original Aramis vintage aftershave and Aramis Havana vintage. I only have the latter bec of the D word. Discontinued. (Nope, reissues are NOT the same).
