Who dances with the rain
For Him is a divider. And it's a textbook case. I became aware of this fragrance through the perfumer (Francis Kurkdjian), whose works I greatly admire.

The fragrance starts off heavy, musty and animalistic. Already here the fragrance splits the opinions into 2 camps. Some people find it unpleasant, can't like it olfactorically and then there are those who are patient, have a tendency to extremes or prefer the unusual. The latter group will be rewarded with an incredible scent experience at the latest in the drydown. Because For Him really needs time. Time to unfold on the skin, to create its warmth and to let go of its reins.

In previous reviews the word "rain" or wetness was often mentioned here. And this association also comes to mind in For Him. I see reflections of houses on a rainy street before my inner eye. Foggy avenues that seem deserted and where the last ray of sunlight flashed through the cloud cover hours ago. There is still life here. But not on this street. The people are in their apartments. Sitting at the window and looking outside. But they do not want to be out in this weather. But every once in a while you meet a person on this rainy street. A like-minded person. He's probably wearing "For Him" by Narciso Rodriguez.

Pushy Smelly-Heiner
I had bought this fragrance at good luck and without any idea what to expect. Already while applying it, it took my breath away and I still had the hope that it would turn to good. Unfortunately this was not the case. After a little more than 10 minutes I washed it off.
This EDT made me feel like it was trying to crush me. I was uncomfortable from the beginning It smelled musty, which didn't change later, but I could still detect some amber, but musk and patchouli were not visible. Maybe it is the composition (probably).
A very unattractive contemporary that one does not necessarily need.

Very unique and niche quality!
Okay, so this is a freakin' awesome-sauce fragrance. Niche quality. I've read multiple reviews and I don't understand the "wet cement" reference given my wearings? Even though there are only four notes listed, this fragrance has a lot of depth and does change from the opening to the dry-down. It's not linear and has decent projection. This fragrance opens fresh and then dries down and you can smell the musk, and then amber (which gives it the sweetness). The patchouli is there but only slightly in the background. You could wear this fragrance for any season, any event, and to work. This fragrance touches all the bases for me personally, and I'm so glad I purchased this fragrance! 10 / 10!

Do you have a little more time?
You should indeed bring time with you, because the prelude to this fragrance is anything but masculine, not even the pepper tears it out. Wrong bottle? Restlessness is spreading. After a certain time, if you have it, Him suddenly shows himself to be versatile: "No, girl, you're going to queue up at the back, now it's the boys' turn! "But I don't want to!" she bucks and bitching while Amber, Musk and Patchouli hold the girl by the shoulder and push her into the corner. Cheeky as she is, she leans forward every now and then, and if she throws just a few grains of pepper on the boys - until her supply slowly melts away.
Or to put it another way: The middle and base are a classic men's scent - amber and musk. Classic in the sense of spicy aftershave; yes, I'm even inclined to use the nasty word in the mouth that starts with B and ends with arbershop.

For wet asphalt and concrete you have to stretch your imagination quite far. If brown sauce tastes like lavender, pepper and violet, then it is brown sauce - of course not, because otherwise chips would also taste like strawberries or lemons. No! It's a classic men's scent, old school. Old reinterpreted but with old basic DNA and, after the floral aberration at the beginning, a relatively straightforward fragrance.

By the way, I also know the version for the ladies. I like it much better than the men's fragrance, maybe I'll write a comment on it...

Spring rain...
A beautiful strange fragrance and even though very typical of aromatic-fougere type.
Eager to try when I received it, I sprayed 3 shots and was hit instantly by a dark cloud of grey amber, violet leaf, patchouli & musk that almost choked my senses. It's like a dirty oily concrete perimeter that surrounds a violet & patchouli garden under a spring rain and I just love it !.
The spray mechanism is very effective so I would say a max. 3-4 sprays in a normal day to get the whole feeling experience. Ambery, fougere, wet, musky, aromatic, dark, long-lasting...it has them all !. My personal rank 8/10. Recommended. Nice job Mr. Francis Kurkdjian !

Boing, boom, zack, bang!
The fragrance will put "a dent in your clove" at the first spray, to quote Bud Spencer. In the beginning the lavender-pepper mix almost kills you, it really gets you on the 12, almost too hard to bear. Minutes later the peppery fragrance has clearly faded away to the advantage of masculine musk notes. And that's exactly the blend I like! Don't be frightened by the first minutes, after that the thing is the bang: Absolute recommendation to buy!

Flowery Tiger from the bottle..
Wow...two sprayers...and lavender and violet, accelerated by the pink pepper, literally explode on the skin and unfold your bouquet. A strong floral note, which fades into the background after a few minutes. The pepper also becomes milder. Time for the tiger... the musk unfolds, but really! I think it's great. I can't stop sniffing, it sharpens my senses and I would love to go hunting... somehow this Narciso awakens something animalistic in me :)
I find this creation extremely successful. The musk is present, but is also presented in a correspondingly beautiful way.

Delicate Violence
This must be one of the most original scents I ever encountered. Little do I know about notes, but boy this one is intriguing to say the least. It makes me feel and think about cold and warmth at the same time. Probably the violets give it that cold breeze and the musk fights back to cut the chills out of it. The violet musk combo must be the author of this strange metallic accord that somehow reminds me of a brutal accident and almost tasting the blood after fallin into your face. I know it sounds weird but it portraits a violent picture in my mind I cannot easily escape of. I still think it's original and I love it's smells but at times makes me feel depressed, lonely and unapprochable. It has such a paradoxal beauty, I cannot completely understand this scent yet. Hope in the future to be wearing it often so it can change my perspective on it.

For musk lovers....
Narciso Rodriguez For Him ... is an unmistakable musk fragrance for men, a good companion at this time of year. If you like Dior "Fahrenheit" or YSL "L'Homme Libre" or are looking for a timeless, pure musk scent then this could be for you too.
Its bottle is contemporary and simple, simply beautiful.
As for the fragrance, I can say that it is a bit intense at first, but then it becomes a very pure, fine, seductive fragrance. Top note is floral, but not too feminine, but also not masculine. Tap on lavender or violet. Pleasant and unisex. I couldn't identify the heart note at first until I noticed it: musk! But a very fine and unobtrusive, but also very sensual variation. Wonderful, and here again a very strong unisex touch is noticeable. Could wear women. The base note is still the most complex. Somewhat mossy, a little patchouli, as well as subtle woody notes. I could only imagine herbaceous things. Discreet floral notes are also present here again. A modern men's perfume with Unisextouch.
For Him gives you a focus and it is definitely a versatile fragrance that I have come to love.
According to the statements, this fragrance smells a bit like wet concrete, so it is often recommended to wear it when it rains. Just give it a try. It really does...

so urban
i can't find him right now. For me it's a mixture of Grey Flannell + Jaguar for men + Calone (or cucumber) + even more cold violets and even more musk. Previous fragrances are in my opinion rather associated with nature/herbaceousness. I think it's just the grey, minimalist bottle, but it's good. If you had put it in a Creed-like container and painted a castle on it, you would have associated it with Scotland and cold castles or something. But the eye smells with and to smells belongs also so incredibly much subjective imagination and that is also good so. But he has something and he attracts women - I think it's the cucumber factor .. does that sound vulgar now ? I once read somewhere that this Calone (melon or cucumber) or the smell of green cucumbers should turn on women, well then nothing like applied. Nah, I still don't, because I'm too tired of this stuff. I think he wears himself like an additional leather jacket or at least sweater, not so heavy but so thick and that's why he was out with me personally. But I must admit without envy, he has style, charisma and also something special and in a good-looking young man he certainly does very well. I guess I can do the first one with good lighting, the second one... let's leave it. Let younger ones carry it in

No concrete or rain for me. Just repulsive musk - I really wanted to like it, but it seems that the feeling is not mutual.

Violets and lavender in a dusty musky fog, spicy and slightly smoky, result in a modern, urban and striking fragrance.

Oh man! All the times I wear it I feel so wild, naughty and raunchy guy. Maybe, musk and patchouli make that to me... I love it, absolutely!
