Unforgettable.

I briefly dated a man who wore this as his signature scent. After one whiff, I’ve never been able to forget how amazing it smells — I still pass men wearing this and want to jump their bones. The hype is right, men. Women love this scent. This is a scent that will get you laid.It’s so good, in fact, that I’ve bought a bottle for my boyfriend and insisted he wear it. It really does seem to be a universally flattering scent, and at about $60 for 4.2oz, it’s a better deal than most of the perfumes I buy for myself.

The bottle is odd, but the scent is amazing.

This cologne was recommended to me by a friend of mine about five years ago. She told me that she wished her boyfriend wore it, and if I wanted to “drive the ladies crazy” to get this fragrance by Jean Paul Gaultier. She continued to say it is the cologne in the bottle shaped like a man’s body.A few days later I went to the store and smelled this cologne. I loved it and bought it right then and there. It has a sweet, spicy, musky and dark aroma. A fragrance good for the day or night use. As for what my friend said about this fragrance, she was correct, I have gotten only positive feedback by women when I wear it.

Expensive Varvatos

This smells almost exactly like John Varvatos by John Varvatos.Varvatos is half the price. Be smart; at least sample both before buying.Don’t pay so much for a name, a can, and a bottle.I wanted to make it 4 stars because of the price, but the longevity is 16 hours and Varvatos is only around 8 hours.

Clubman Pinaud Special Reserve After Shave

Ive purchased the Original Clubman and the Lime Sec aftershaves but they dont compare with the Special Reserves scent and toning features. The Special Reserve smells woodsy and musky right out of the bottle and when it hits your face it has the traditional clubman sting but than it transforms itself into a breath of sweetness and spicy majesty that is incredible.Clubman Pinaud After Shave Lotion, 6 OunceEasily my favorite and the scent is very long lasting compared to the other brands I have reviewed here on Amazon. Please give it a try. You wont be disappointed. Very manly-oldtyme and economical.

Unique, Mysterious, Bold, but just ok

I was hard pressed to give a review of this because I am still uncertain of how I feel about it. For one, it says, “aftershave cologne”, it should be ranked up there as eau de toilette because it is really strong. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that this is like the original Clubman where you can splash it on your face and the scent will fade. It won’t. It is a powerful scent that has long and strong staying power (for better or worse). So, this should not be classified as aftershave. It is strong stuff.Secondly the scent. Many wet shavers love the original Clubman because it has a timeless barber-shoppy scent that just smells good, refreshing, a little powdery and yet is masculine. This scent comes off mysterious, hard to place, maybe pine or some woodsy scent that immediately reminded me of an antique library with some very old books. It caught my attention as an old scent that I may have actually smelled someone using it when I was a child and haven’t smelled it again since. A nostalgic and olde-timey scent. It actually smells interesting. You have to hand it to Pinaud for originality. This IS original.However, shortly after I used it, I had some sort of reaction to it and my sinuses went berserk. Maybe this was because I am used to the original Clubman where I splash my face with it and when I tried this, I did it in a similar fashion. Big mistake. And even after washing it off and washing my hands, I just could not get the smell off my hands. I literally had to take a shower to get this off of me completely.I have since used it again and put a few drops on the back of my neck and had no real problems, maybe a little bit of a sinus issue, but nothing terrible. I will probably use the rest of the bottle but I doubt I will purchase it again, though I do like its old smell, but it is really strong. And the reactions you get will be either people hate it or people love it. My girlfriend immediately said she liked it and said wow. Minutes later she had an allergy to it and told me she hated it.So, this is a strange one, a very strange, mysteriously good and bad cologne. Do not make the mistake of thinking it is an aftershave.

writing titles is the hardest part of a review

For the record, I do not like this as much as I do the other Clubman aftershaves. But it’s not bad. I would give this 3.5 stars, so I rounded up. It smells like a stronger version of their musk scent.

Subtle and refined fragrance that lasts all day

I’ve tried many different EDT’s over the years and can definitely say L’eau D’Issey is my absolute favorite. If you likePolo Sport,True Star By Tommy Hilfiger,Hugo Boss For Men, orCurve By Liz Claiborne, you’ll probably like L’eau D’Issey.It smells refined, youthful, and sophisticated, with a light citrus & woody spice scent that is very pleasing, not musky, overly sweet, or intrusive to other people’s olfactory nerves. I don’t like to douse myself in fragrance and be one of those people you can smell from across the room. A little goes a long way and understated elegance is the theme here, down to the attractive frosted glass bottle and minimalist packaging design. All I need is 2 or 3 small pumps in the morning before going to work, and I smell nice all day.Because it is impossible to describe in words how this smells, and the fact that fragrances interact differently based on each user’s skin chemistry, you’ll have to experience it for yourself. Go to your local Sephora/drugstore/perfumery, rub some into your arm, and have a sniff.For $50, not a bad investment in smelling nice. Based on past experience, 4.2 ounces lasts me a year or more.
