    Default Re: Balenciaga Pour Homme is a masterpiece

    As a big fan of Lapidus Ph, I bought a mini a lot of years ago and although I liked it, I thought It wasn't worth a purchase at full retail price (the seller was asking for something like US$ 70-80 at that time). Really nice sweet powdery drydown despite of its strange starting notes. But I just thought I was good with other "sweet powdered" old school fragrances as Chanel pour monsieur concentree, Roccobarocco pour homme, Santos, Versus Uomo and Ungaro II.

    You're welcome! Of course, they are all unique fragrances despite of sharing a common sweet powdered drydown. Ungaro II, for example, mixes the sweet powder with a sour-citrusy old school accord and so on...For a fresher take (although yet old school), try Boucheron pour homme EDT.

    I usually don't like very much citrusy "clean" openings, like Eau Sauvage; I far prefer "dirty citrus" or citrus on steroďds, so to say, like Bugatti. But even when I dislike some new scent, it's not a loss of time, to me, because I've learned something new !

    Have you ever tried Fendi Uomo? I think you'll find this "dirty citrus" opening you are fond of!

    Copy that.



    Another great "dirty citrus" is Monsieur Rochas. Best part of all, (vintage) EDC acts like modern day "thin" EDT.
