90's fresh scents like this, Cool Water and Tommy had more of air of being grounded in the earth and masculine than the modern fresh which is all but androgynous and sometimes a little too sweet, like the best...

Invictus Legend - Paco Rabanne

Invictus Legend American Gigolo
As others have mentioned, for some reason Legend may smell different the first time you are exposed to it, as opposed to repeated regular wearing. I made a dumb move and bought a 5.1 oz jug after sniffing a test pullout in GQ magazine (this is usually...

I really wanted to like Sky Father based on the branding and style. It is definitely unique, but not for me. Try before you buy.

Discovered this through @JCopelandSFP and George Zaharoff's own YouTube channel. One of the rare cases where the hype is true. Excellent.

Leathery and masculine, as the name suggests. Recommended.
Smells exactly like a mens' locker room. More to make an artistic statement than to actually smell "good". Not for me.
Is it just me, or does it seem like this bottle could use an update? Dunhill should give it better packaging than dollar store splash.

My boy Nick J. went ham on the sandalwood - I finally found a replacement for now discontinued Hilfiger Man Sport. Agreed unoriginal.

Low-key racetrack burning rubber and hedione (synthetic jasmine). Strange combo perhaps, but works for me. Unisex but leaning male for sure.

I never get compliments. I wore this on a business trip and was complimented every day. Thank you YSL. #pantydropper

Too sweet. Wear this to instantly smell like a major wimp.

I often disagree with the consensus on certain fragrances. For example, Encre Noir Extreme, Eau Sauvage EDP, and Le 3rd by Caron are all currently rated 8+ but I don't like them at all. Fragrance love is very subjective, and there is nothing wrong with a mass appealing scent. It means you are making more people happy in your daily travels. I have learned to first seek specifically fellow enthusiasts who DON'T like the same scents, as we will then often LIKE the same ones.
