    Re: Best ROSE themed fragrance for men/uni

    I really like Amouage Lyric Man and Lyric Woman. If anything, Lyric Woman is more masculine to my nose, due to its spiciness, Both are devine rosy fragrances in my opinion.

    Re: Is Creed Viking an underrated gem?

    Definitely underrated and IMO far nicer, smoother and more sophisticated than Royal Oud and BdP, both of which get a lot more hype.
