If you like a fragrance which is warm and spicy then this is for you. Though this is an aftershave, I wear it and I love it. I wear Allure Sensuelle and Jo Malone's Pomegrante Noir and like this they have a patchouli basenote

Definitely not just for men

I don't think I would like this on a man. It is a very dirty, dark patchouli with great sillage and good staying power. On myself I love it. Despite the fact it reminds me of the 70's and hippie/trippie days, it is not a headshop patch. Much closer to Aromatics imo. Great scent, not for every day, but when I am in the mood.

I'm giving a review from my memory of this. I bought this for my boyfriend, who was the guitarist in my band. He never wore a cologne before, and was hesitant to wear it, but did it for me. (probably because I was all over him, after spraying it on himself) It fit the times, (middle seventies, patchouly & incense scents were very popular) so I loved it then. I haven't smelled it in over thirty years, so I couldn't comment if I would like it now, but I probably would to some degree, because if nothing else, it would bring back wonderful & exciting memories.

I wear this scent myself in colder months. Yes, the patchouli is very dominant in Gentleman- but I also can detect the spiciness of cinnamon. A little goes a long way. I agree with the reviewer below- a dark, dirty patchouli. Would love to smell it on a man!

counterpoint. right about the love it or hate it. i happen to love it. i seem to like not just single scents, but also the houses behind them. as a rule im underwhelmed by penaligons, estee lauder, l'artisan even creed (there are always exceptions and original vetiver is one of them ). i seem to disproportionatly approve of serge lutens, hermes, and givenchy. super deep dark & dirty patchouli is absolutly there. i envision this as the template upon which masculine fragrances have historically been based. unmistakable

My fiance sometimes wears this because he loves it, but I can't stand it. To me, this fragrance smells like one thing-patchouli, a smell I find repulsive. It lasts and lasts, and reeks up his clothes unlike any other cologne-I can't wash it out no matter what I try. Not even straight liquid Tide will remove it. Even the bottle stinks, and smells up the room it's in. It seems people either love or hate patchouli. It's a popular scent from the seventies, and many , many years back was used as moth repellent, so it may fondly remind people of their grandparents houses. I just happen to be in that group of people who find it utterly repulsive. Well, I guess our house won't have moths.
