Interesting Facts

The name "Fuel for Men" was apparently only the slogan for this fragrance at first. Only with the re-release in 2008, the fragrance officially appeared under this name.

Oh how I wish you were still here;
This was my signature scent through the collage years, and I’ve been longing for something even REMOTELY comparable. This is and will always be my absolute favorite.

The darkness, to the swagger it just GIVES... and the complements it brought me.... oh nostalgia is killing me in scent as we speak....

The Dark Knight of the Fragrance World
First of all: it is a unique fragrance.

The fuel for real men. It explodes like the fuel in the combustion chamber of an engine.
It has the strength and expressiveness almost like gasoline. Just fuel. Male and very distinctive. Nothing for just spraying on. It should be well considered when and where you wear it, if you wear it at all.

Hot juniper paired with fruity pineapple, meets creamy almond with rough, angular leather and spices. A really sharp-edged scent. It has something almost lacquer-like about it. Not for sissies, and it takes courage to wear it. Polarizing, for some noses certainly also deterrent.

The bottle is unique, as is the fragrance. He's got a lot of borrowing from the alien movies.

Sillage and shelf life are above average

Playful and yet mature
Most of the people who had already dealt with fragrances at that time will probably remember the conspicuous spacy bottle.

Somehow you couldn't get around suppressing your own curiosity and sniffing out what might be in there. Probably not only I had expected a totally futuristic over-scent, which could beam one into another olfactory dimension. Maybe something synthetic had been expected.

But from the sprayer comes a rather organic, warm-sweet to creamy appearing surge of relatively familiar ingredients.
In front, a few minimal citric splashes with a hint of pineapple. In the background some musk wafts slowly into the mixture. Also a bit of lavender and a soft amber will attract your attention easily. In between, a little almond flashes through like a casual flash, which is less noticeable on the skin than on paper.

This fuel has an enormous presence and durability. At the very end you can still perceive some patchouli and sandalwood for a longer time, perhaps also a hint of cinnamon.

All together Fuel for Men looks sweet and woody as well as noble and spicy, yes - even a little playful but with adult charm. Somehow he has a certain sexyness with discreet creamy powdery beginnings, but personally he was too wintry for me. Perhaps the apparent discrepancy between the bottle and its contents hindered me.

Later I got myself John Varvatos, who almost has the same olfactory notch, but suggests something different from the given notes.
