    Sensei, doesnt list honey as a note, but it smells like the honey you get out of the golden honey bears.

    Hugo Boss No. 1 has the best honey note to me.

    I'm not trying to get up on a soapbox, but I have a very difficult time buying Hugo Boss products because he was, quite literally, a Nazi.

    http://www.nytimes.com/1997/08/15/bu...zi-regime.html

    Actually, I have never bought any Hugo Boss products because of the company's intimate ties to the Nazi party around the time of WWII. It's a shame, because they actually make some good stuff (Boss No. 1 and Boss Bottled are excellent fragrances, in my opinion, and they make some nice shirts and ties as well). Mercedes-Benz makes some damned fine cars too, but I will not buy one for the same reason.

    Maybe one day I will get past that mental, emotional, and spiritual block and enjoy their products. I honestly hope I do!

    My apologies for the tangential rant. Back on track -- Boss No. 1 has the best honey note I have ever smelled.

    My personal experience with HdP 1725 that my nose can't really break down the top notes and in the first hour after application all I can smell is a sweet scent that reminds me of honey. Probably the almond and vanilla have important role in this. I even started thinking of selling this beauty because of the cloying experience. Luckily the drydown convinced me that this is one of the best fougeres for my age group.

    Chergui and B2B have always smelled feminine to me. They're nice, but when I'm really thinking of "men's fragrances" as the title states, I'd go with Tabac Rouge and Lanvin Avant Garde (as someone already mentioned). I also like the honey in Bois d'Argent as well, but it could just as easily be argued that that is not really a "men's fragrance."

    Worth mentioning that Calvin Klein's new Euphoria Gold has a very good honey note over amber.

    For the best bang for buck, Georgio for men, Fantastic honey and Oakmos. But please try and find a pre-2009 - I have a 2008 and pre 2000 bottle With no ingredients list. EA earlier Formulas are pretty true to the original.
    PRPH With the Silver metallic old font logo if you can find it is truly amazing. Also the mid 80s bottles with the bevelled glass logo. Jampacked with delicious honey, Oakmoss And herbs, In my opinion the best ever fougere

    Wihtout hesitation L'Envol (EDP) by Cartier. Also: Chergui by Serge Lutens (even if I wouldn't define it as an "honey fragrance").

    Floris Honey Oud and Montale Honey Aoud both use a very similar or identical honey note which reimagines honey without the urinous and woody tones leaving behind only the sweet syrupy tones supported by a seemlessly blended vanilla, laudanum or amber accord . Both fragrances are addictive, though Montale Honey Aoud lasts a lot longer for me.

    These two have me intrigued along with Montale Red Tobacco, Boclet’s tobacco, and Cartier L’Envol I understand that Red tobacco and Boclet may not contain honey. I considered Cergui but it doesn’t have any spiciness to it and Absolue pour Le soir is kind of pricey

    This is quite an old thread to say the least, so times and tastes do change.

    I would say Paco Rabanne PH from the classics and Amouage Jubilation XXV from the more recent releases.

    I concur. Absolutely delicious fragrance, without being gourmand at all. Hopefully this one is coming back.

    Michael For Men and Michael Kors for Men both have a strong honey note that never gets mentioned. It's most notable in the drydown.

    Hiram Green Slowdive

    Similar to Francesca Bianchi Angel's Dust and Zoologist Bee in the honey-floral-musk direction.
    Slowdive it's my favorite from the trio.

    It's also present the sweet tobacco template from Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille and Phaedon Tabac Rouge.
    Slowdive it's also my favorite. It's more dark, thick and dirty-animalic.

    Cartier Oud Radieux

    A piquant, peppery spicy, woody, refreshing honey, also good for warm weather.
