    For me, none that come to mind.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    I really like AdP Colonia Intensa. Not quite bottle-worthy for me (yet?) but it has a definite charm about it.

    A couple are some that vintage lovers know but I feel the general population may not be really aware of. And both are excellent. Sybaris and Romeo Gigli per Uomo

    I wish that I had acquired Armani Attitude before it was discontinued.

    This one. Probably his all-time best masculine. Years before the Skynet AI took over his brain.

    Bvlgari Wood Neroli, it's a little too often overlooked because it's neither a dude bro, nor niche snob fragrance.

    I appreciate a lot Sybaris, original Panthere and Le Baiser du Dragon but his real masterpiece is Romeo Gigli by Romeo Gigli Pour Homme (one of the best masculine fragrances ever).

    Gigli is one I haven't had a chance to smell, but I own Sud Est.

    Hi dear Zealot, Romeo Gigli is by now really hard to find, Sud Est is another spectacular green-floral masculine super fragrance.

    I discovered Sud Est by accident but no perfumer is listed for that one. I agree, it's amazing and very "garrigue" fragrance.

    That's a shame. It was one of those everything but the kitchen sink blends that I went batsh*t crazy over. One of the few I rebought a few times back then. I couldn't really say what it smelled like, I just remember being really taken with it. Look at the note profile...

    I tried to find after I joined Basenotes and all I could find was an aftershave version which didn't cut it.
    Between Covid and retirement I don't get out much. But when I do, I smell real good.

    Unfortunately Morillas to me is a master of mediocrity, but this one I do enjoy which seems to be very ''underrated''.

    None, really. I find him to be a rather average perfumer.

    If it’s inexpensive, there is really no reason to not get it. Worst case scenario, you’ve experienced something new and acquired a reference for what several people have now stated they enjoy. I’ve done that before and it has proved very useful for me, even when I ended up not liking a fragrance. It has also helped me find other’s opinions which align with my tastes.

    Wow. I forgot I had this one in my collection. I need to take it for a spin. I would agree that it is underrated.

    several variations on/flankers from the Bvlgari Blu and Bvlgari Man in Black lines,
    Homme de Cafe,
    Dsquared He Wood Ocean Wood,
    ADG Essenza,
    Givenchy Greenenergy,
    Salvatore Ferragamo Uomo,
    Mauboussin Homme,

    among others

    Fantastic, one of my favorite ever, I'd love to find it back in production in the next future. One of the most romantic creations of the olfactory panorama, languid and decadent.

    By Kilian's Dark Lord come to mind. So far my favourite fragrance containing the Woodleather note.The Kilian sweet "rum" note makes it kind of addictive but I guess the Jasmin in the beginning makes it a bit too morbid and hard to find enough occasions to wear for many. In my opinion it's a sleeper hit for fans of leather fragrances.

    £17 for 10ml. Not so cheap. I do agree with your logic behind trying it though.
