This is my latest Le Male flanker to test out...

Fragrance notes: African orange flower, bergamot, basil, caraway seeds

It starts out smelling very musky, almost like ambergris in the top notes (thanks to the combo of orange flower's sweet-floral essence mixed with the sweaty, body-odorish caraway): Think YSL's Kouros when it comes to its famous animalic quality, and that's what I got in LCFdM.

The usual sweetness that Le Male is known for isn't there, but it moves in a decidedly fresh, pungent direction instead (driven by lemony fresh bergamot and basil). Basil is subdued but is at the heart of LCFdM as its main spice statement.

A very very sexy, sublime expression of Le Male. The nominal La Fleur du Male has a heavy, lingering tartness based on petitgrain and fern accords mixing with orange blossom; this flanker of a flanker tones the intensity of the tartness down and capitalizes on centering the scent on caraway and basil leaf. Both are more powdery than the original Le Male.

Kudos to JPG for this animalic take on one of my top favorite Le Male flankers, La Fleur du Male. Both are more floral than many men may care for, but I think many others can appreciate its distinct rethink of the Le Male mystique.

Definitely more wearable than the original one. Love the neroli-vanilla vibe.

Fleur Du Male La Cologne is a Very White and thick mossy fragrance. Sometimes it even smells of strong white soap that's animalic to me. It last a long time on the skin.

While not a bad scent, this is WAY too feminine for me. If you had honestly told me this was a woman's scent I wouldn't have batted an eye. Personally I don't find Le Male that sexually ambiguous, but many do. If you consider that "meterosexual" than I would hazard a guess this would fall under "full blown drag queen". For a woman or an androgenous male, this would be a thumbs up in my mind. For a dude, thumbs down. Averaging the two = neutral rating.

This one smells like one of my mothers perfumes. Way too feminine! Try before buying is all that I can say.

Good top notes, a barbershop quartet singing from the classic songbook of Sauvage, Monsieur de Givenchy and Guerlain E D C Imperiale, but unfotunately it made the Imperiale seem long lasting and had diminished to a sweet sweaty smell before you could say, "One hour".
