    Default Please reccomend based on likes

    I like:

    Creed Aventus (preference for more smokey batch).
    Aramis Classic
    Sauvage
    Terre d'hermes
    Bleu De Chanel

    I've had lots of others too but these ones stand out the most.

    I find that a lot of fragrances today are very similar in that they tend to have an overloaded generic sweet smell to them, and the ones I've listed above I find more unique or even on the more masculine spectrum than the traditional unisex fragrance that is popular today.

    I have sampled Farenheit and thought it smelled like gasoline, not a fan.

    Also sampled Kourous and thought it smelled like a urinal cake 100% so also not a fan.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the suggestions everybody. I went into town this morning to try some samples. I was stood in the shop for ages just sniffing.

    Really enjoyed Antaeus, best one by far.

    Somewhat liked Bvlgari Men in Black (I think it falls into the too sweet cologne type of smell).

    Givenchy Gentleman was the worst by far, only one I outright disliked completely, wonder what is in it..

    Polo Green was unique, sort of strange smelling, hint of lime in it, was not sure what to think about it so I will come back to this later I think for a second try, I liked it but not enough as the others at the time.

    Sampled Tom Ford's anthracite and it smelt too sweet like Bvlgari which was surprising as I had different expectations.

    Unfortunately couldn't find any samples of Quorum or Azzaro Pour Homme.


    CK Obsession was nice, second favourite next to Antaeus.

    Resampled Farenheit, didn't get the gasoline smell this time around but still was not a fan of it.

    Lady behind the desk suggested trying 'Safari' I thought it was nice, but a bit too bland, not much going on to garner much interest.


    Still don't understand why a lot of people think Korous falls under the masculine category, I tried it again and it smells like a just cleaned public bathroom. Y'all mad.

    In the end I bought Antaeus 100ml.

    I've saw Aramis Havana come up A LOT so I really want to try it for sure.. how different Is it to the classic Aramis fragrance though, because I already have 110ml of it.

    You sure it was Anthracite you tried? Too sweet is not something i would consider for that fragrance. It has a complete lack of sweetness. The other two Noirs are sweet though, Extreme more than Noir.
    Itís tragic to think that heroic manís great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.

    The one glaring omission would be Dolce and Gabbana The One.

    From a personal viewpoint alone, quite different from the classic Aramis, aside from the good performance for a classic style scent, with consistent classic notes, still obtainable inexpensively, while Havana does have far more tobacco, boozy and spice notes at once than any Aramis fragrance (maybe excepting its flanker Havana Reserva)
