    Cool Name Your Favorite Flanker of a Flanker!

    And if you're up to the challenge, name your favorite flanker of a flanker of a flanker! We're going Inception on this one. Don't name your favorite flanker, it HAS to be a flanker of a flanker.

    For instance, Polo Red is a Polo flanker. Polo Red Intense is a flanker of Polo Red. Probably my favorite until I can think of more.

    Let the games begin!

    There was a thread on this earlier this year, but I'm not going to spoil it

    I don't have any flankers of flankers (of flankers...), just flankers. But Declaration d'Un Soir Intense is damn nice.

    Dammit, you stole mine! I guess I'll go with L'Eau D'Issey Super Majeure. Issey Miyake seems to be the king of flankers.

    Eau Sauvage Extreme Intense? Or maybe Eau Sauvage Parfum Redux 2017?

    Not really favorites, but I just wanted to get in the game.

    I was going to mention this, or the Eau Electrique flanker, which I also thought was pretty good.

    Oh how timely! I happen to be wearing mine now, Shalimar Parfum Initial l'Eau. My version is actually Shalimar Parfum Initial l'Eau Si Sensuelle, which is the same fragrance, but in a special edition bottle (not exactly a flanker of a flanker of a flanker- but close!). I believe this makes me winner winner chicken dinner so far?

    The third version of Perry Ellis (For Men) should be an honorary second flanker, since you can still buy the original (more or less, after IFRA). But no, not a real flanker. More like a flankerization byproduct.

    Have you tried Madagascar? I found this very similar to the original Shalimar but with actual vanilla.

    Gender flankers are a temporal concept!!!

    I hate appeal to authority, but one of the critics I'm sure has used the term "masculine flanker" for the pour homme version of something. When a somewhat superfluous male version follows with PH added, it certainly feels like a flanker. But obviously it's not a clean and universally agreed case of flankerism.

    Insense Ultramarine Ice Cube. Kouros Eau d'Ete 2002 (or whatever it is), if these can count as flankers of flankers. Maybe they're just flanker updates.

    This is a good choice. Probably my favorite flanker flanker, now that I've been reminded.

    I suppose the argument is that Bvlgari Man Black Orient (2016) is a flanker of the Bvlgari Man (2010) flanker Man in Black (2014).
