Olivier Polge made a powdery version of "Brut".
Why the hell should I pay €320 for this, when Brut can be found for < €15?

When I want to feel like the alpha male in the room. Begins fruity and ends smokey and woodsy. Lumberjack boss.

Starts with a feral bite, ends with a powdery kiss.
That is, spicy lavender morphs into gentle iris.
I just wish the journey lasted longer.

No surprises here.
As its name implies, this fragrance is just
Brutally, Awfully, Desperately
BAD.

You either like it or you don’t. To me, this is the most animalic thing I know about fragrances. So damn manly, dirty, healing, mysterious.

Very similar to Reflection Man and Le Male. Not original and inferior to Reflection Man. Very long lasting with great projection.

Beyond usual codes?
No way!
It's that same fruity-floral mess you've already smelled tons of times, in the ugliest bottle of Kenzo's history.

The sweetest, creamy, and powdery tobacco you ever had. A bit peppery, spicy in the beginning, honey like, with warm iris and vanilla blend.

Per hubby, "You could just throw out all the rest and keep this!"

A smoother, more ambery MFK Absolue Pour le Soir. This new creation will replace it. I like the new one slightly better.

It's not an ordinary run of the smashed minty smell, but a light fresh spearmint I have never or rarely smelled before in a cologne. Amazing!

At first daring and masterful combination of flowers and smoke, then beatiful cool (sometimes sweetish) smoke with Amouage signature. Top!!!
Merely a spiced up re-do of Sensuous Noir. C'mon EL. You're better than that.
Very sophisticated and elegant take on iris. A bit woody, a bit powdery. Everyone shall find in it something to like

While "Le Male" remains a rebel up to the dense vanilla-laden base, "Reflection" wears a suit and is well-behaved from the beginning.

Oud with a subtle patchouli, well softened by sweetish and fruity (but not overloaded) rum note. Silky-woody. (unreformulated version)

Love: this gentle scent smells like a soothing, pampering cream. Hate: > a dot makes it hard to breathe. Such a soft, pretty poison.

The coolest, smoothest, and leathery tobacco leaf you ever had. A fresh start, an earthy heart, with antiqued leather and silky suede blend.
A post-structuralist take on the early 20th century fougère. Brilliant stuff!

A sweet, creamy, slightly tart citrussy floral.
So, where's the honey? Honey, I washed off the honey.

Sexy in a bottle. One of the best smelling fragrances out there. Universal appeal through a masterful blend of spices and amber sweetness.

Possibly my favorite orange blossom based scent. Resinous, woody & creamy. Delectably sweet cinnamon, marzipan, orange blossom & sandalwood.

Dry-warm scent, with dusty, finely spiced vanilla note (delicately sweet and slightly bitter at the same time). Pleasant and nice to wear.
