Pleasant all-rounder
Recently I bought a small amount of fragrances at Ebay for a good price. The 'Lagerfeld Man' was completely unknown to me until then.

The fragrance starts off rather unharmoniously acidic, citrusy and yet with a minimal floral sweetness. However, this prelude is very quickly replaced by woody notes, which dominate the further course.

I suppose the 'white woods' provide the subtle resinous note that makes the fragrance very pleasant for me. Musk and vetiver play only a very reserved role. And every now and then a small splash of Yuzu appears
Lagerfeld Man' is for me a masculine scent, especially in cool, not too warm temperatures, and is good to wear on many occasions when the first five minutes are over.

The shelf life is about seven hours for me and the radiation is rather moderate. You have to get a little closer to notice 'Lagerfeld Man'
My 50ml bottle looks appealing, but the handling is unfortunately not optimal due to the flat and wide shape. The spray head sprays a very fine mist.

Sharp and classy
Easily one of the nices offerings by Lagerfeld for men, partially because it’s decent itself and partially because it would be a really easy win anyway. You can definitely smell Christine Nagel’s favourite notes and inspirations: Lagerfeld Man is a sharp, breezy, really thin Oriental blend based on a really nice and simple balance between cinnamon and cedar, with green-pine notes enhancing the natural-balsamic side of cedar, and some “laundry musk” (or something similar) giving some weight and “masculine” depth to the scent – vaguely barbershop, too. Shortly something similar to many “pencil shavings” fragrances, just with a bit more class and some more complex Oriental mood, mostly due to cinnamon which is quite heavy here, initially at least. Pleasantly refined and virile, even a bit dark and quite sophisticated given the sharp feel of woods and spices and the overall “minimalistic” approach; just a bit linear, the only evolution being a slow turn to vetiver then back to cedar (with an unexpected similarity to Gucci pour Homme II on the very final stages of drydown: Lagerfeld and that do share a couple of notes in fact), and also I am afraid a bit cheap as regards of the material. It does not “scream” cheapness, and Nagel surely did her best to make the most out of the budget; but still you clearly smell this isn’t Fendi Theorema for women or other masterpieces by this same nose. It is more, say, kind of a “budget version” of her skills. Nonetheless it is still really nice and perfectly enjoyable, with also a “niche” feel, just probably a tad below what it could have been with some more quality materials.
