    Default Recommend me a full on masculine I should try!

    I’m in search of another excellent masculine fragrance, I would like it to lean formal for work purposes. I was thinking of a bottle of Knize Ten sounds like a solid choice but am looking for recommendations!

    IMO, Knize Ten would be bold for the office, but hey let’s do this!! Every suggestion I was going to make you already have in your wardrobe....

    I'm not sure about the inside joke, but I would recommend Polo as a serious suggestion if you don't already have it.

    Fendi Uomo. A quiet well dressed and groomed man with enormous presence. Pure Italian class. A spicy leather blended with herbs, woods and even coconut. Can’t think of anything released in the last 20 years which smells similar.

    Any price range? Knize Ten is a great classic that still works very well. Guerlain Derby for something even more formal.

    For an office scent, I can't gush enough about ORMANDE MAN.
    I literally want to go back to work so I could wear it there.

    I also like COSTUME NATIONAL HOMME but see you already have that.

    Tastes vary, but I find KNIZE TEN too brutally old fashioned for work (and I'm an old dude).

    I don’t understand.It is so vast that surpasses all understanding.Understanding is always limited.But not understanding can have no boundaries.I feel like I'm much more complete when I don't understand.Not understanding,like I say,is a gift.Not understanding,but not as a simple-minded.The good thing is to be intelligent and not understand.It's a strange blessing, like having craziness without being crazy.It is a meek disinterest,it is a stupid sweetness.

    HA! NO.

    Danny Mitchell is "MR POLO" - I think he wears it Mon-Thu and switches to FARENHEIT on Friday.
