Latest Reviews of Tattoo pour Homme

Tobacco and tonka with a hint of amber. Runs right up to the line of gourmand without crossing over. Not great, but wearable.

I really wanted Michael Germain's 'Tattoo' to be good. The bottle is sexy, the box is nice and the name just seems like it would be a good nightlife and evening fragrance. Sadly however, I should have known better. You win some and you lose some when you blind buy fragrances, and this was a dud.

Initial notes are amber, citrus, rubbing alcohol, and a slight hint of tobacco with a dash of musk. It smells like a cheap body spray at first, like alcohol and water mixed with a hint of cologne. Once it drys down it does smell ok, sort of like the men's clothing area in a department store. This lovely note doesn't last very long though, so don't get your hopes up.

Longevity is very poor on this. It projects and lingers somewhat for the first hour, but with well over a twenty sprays to the neck, chest, shoulders, wrists and even clothes this stuff faded away to nothing within 3-4 hours. The sprayer is one of the best I've ever seen and you will need that for this. You have to bath in this to get any sillage or performance out of it.

It is very subtle, stays close to the skin and just feels weak and cheaply made. More of a body mist than a cologne. It is a very safe, decent smelling fragrance, but very unlikely to get you noticed or complimented as its just too soft for anyone else to really smell it.

You get what you pay for, and for ten bucks you can easily gift this to a teenager or use it as an after shower body spray. I use it to wear to the gym and nothing else. Its simply too weak and subtle for my tastes.

Unless you like wear, poorly performing fragrances, steer clear of this. For just a few bucks more, there are countless better options out there that last way longer which perform and smell way better.

interesting I have almost all michel germain sexy frags and this lingers with that faintly under the amber tones...for $8 u cannot go wrong...i was at TJ maxx and asked if i could smell and she opened and i sprayed away...she( the cashier) loved it and though it was very nice for $8....I bought and found it projects well and is soft yet noticeable...good deal and while not an amazing fragrance it does smell unique to me.Pros: good projection/ priceCons: none

I don't get much other than the amber. There seems to be a bit of the tobacco but that's about it. Yes, this comes across as the "poor man's" version of the A*Men base, though without patchouli, it seems. It does smell nice, with just the slightest hint of of a "synthetic" candy quality. Certainly if you can get it cheap and want something like this it's likely you'll be satisfied, just don't expect niche here. I've got the bottle pictured above, but it's possible the other bottle represents a different fragrance, for all I know.

For the price, it's a good deal...

I think it fits in my wardrobe as something I would wear to a sporting event or a rock concert. If I were to compare it to something else, it would no doubt be Homme Exceptional by Mont Blanc. It's a bit orangy and I get the syntheic tobacco...maybe something on the musky side.

Safe and pleasant, but far from original. again, for under 10's quite the value, and probably a nice gift for a college kid that enjoys hoodies and jeans.

Excellent blind buy at the discount store for $10. People have compared it to a low ball Pure Malt. Haven't smelled that one, but this one is really nice.

Totally generic and dull. I can't give a specific fragrance reference; it smells like all of them, in a sense. If the air surrounding the fragrance aisle at Sephora were to be extracted and bottled, you'd get this. For conformists only.
