What odd replies, asking Katie which are the best “panty droppers” and comparing Bulgari Man in Black EDP to HM because, I guess, HM can be an EDP too. Just, wow. Anyway, I just chose HM EDP as one of “if you could have only four fragrances and they’re cheapies” so I thought of you, Katie. I should explain that. I was torn between that HM and its EDT concentration which I bought based on your review and in effect as a backup to the EDP I like so well half expecting it to be reformulated or discontinued all the time. I re-watched this video to reinforce my decision — I WANTED that extra lemon(head) in there as this leaned most Summery compared to my other three choices. Speaking of Summer, presuming you remain North of the equator and the ground, I truly hope yours has been wonderful! We all miss you you know.

I smelled this a while back in Sephora and I told my boyfriend I want to get this for you. I love the spiciness of it. Its amazing on men!

I have only recently discovered HM, and it happened at a time when I didn’t think I would EVER have a new favorite. I am fascinated with that pungent smell, but I DON’T care for the drydown, which reminds me of BlackOrchid. I ordered a decant online after my sample got used up, can’t wait!

I think I’m going to do a video review to this fragrance. 😀

I tried this one day at Sephora during a break at work (I work at the mall) and one of the sales rep recommended I try this one. At first I really liked the lemony/citrus opening and was really taken by it but after it started setting and getting into the real scent it smelled a little dank on me, but my co-workers seemed to like it. Now that may have been because I was a bit dirty from work.

Should I go back and try it again when I’m clean? <----That made me sound like a total

Katie Puckrik Smells says:

Thanks for the report, Sambucca. Good to get your take on it.

Katie Puckrik Smells says:

@MKBEntertainment It’s a drag when you keep smelling others wearing “your” scent.

Hi Katie, as always interesting review…I am thinking about buying a panty dopper or a lady killer, sorry for that, I am 32 and the targeted girls moves from here to 40….would this be useful for that?, what about declaration d’un soir by cartier? or au masculine by LL…or maybe mont blanc individuel?, thanks a lot and happy holidays!!!

clee vage says:

Just one review and I have subscribed…love your reviews, and I ordered this online a few days ago. I hope I get it this week. Thanks for making me even more impatient.

Samantha Angaiak says:

Interesting, my boyfriend bought this for himself and bought me the women’s fragrance by Hanae Mori.

Katie Puckrik Smells says:

@Cardsmaster Men’s fragrances just keep getting sweeter and sweeter! Compared to A*Men and One Million, HM is practically a sober smell.

Katie Puckrik Smells says:

I’m so impressed with this fragrance – that it’s so action-packed, but not gloopy/stodgy.

Mr215Alive says:

bet her panties smell sooooo good!!!!

Katie Puckrik Smells says:

@gogogadgetness His’n’hers Hanae Moris!

Cardsmaster says:

Too lemony, too sweet, too feminine. What kind of man would want to smell like an icecream sundae? Please, STAY AWAY GUYS, just STAY AWAY!

Katie Puckrik Smells says:

@mattheo321 Join the fun!

Katie Puckrik Smells says:

I still think the EDT is better calibrated than the EDP, which just seems heavier and busier to no better effect. If you’re getting results with the EDT, stick with that. Or try something new…Tom Ford Noir is nice…

xcessive37 says:

Bar none the sexiest, worldliest and most enjoyable reviewer that youtube has to offer. I just blind bought HM based partly on your review, thanks for the insight.

Katie Puckrik Smells says:

@sweetestpea72 If you already have the edp of HM, you don’t need the edt. They’re similar enough. Don’t bother with the Rochas, but if you wanted another bottle of something, you could get Body Kouros. HM can be your warm weather gourmand, and BK can be your cold weather gourmand.

Batphink Phil says:

I’m in 50;s but still a cool guy but now having second thought it does sound like a younger frag though I do wear Iceberg ‘Twice’ which is also sweet lemony vibe that last over 24 hours! Nice choccy gourmand with fresh note is Desire De Rochas!

jo says:

HM and Chrome are my top summer fragrances. HM is a for sure lady killer, Chrome is a bit more generic but still a highly complimented fragrance.

Any plans a review of the new HIM for Men by Hanae Mori?

Randal Dominguez says:

Katie Puckrik Smells You’re extremely beautiful 🙂

Manufacturing Partners says:

I bought this by mistake for my wife thinking it was a woman’s perfume. Once she found out it was for guys she refused to wear it. So now I have it and it’s not really my kind of fragrance so I’ll either sell it or give away

Katie Puckrik Smells says:

@ash4245 I agree.

Kurt Christian Penafort says:

Can you please do a video on which is better : Acqua di Gio Perfumo or Macera Cedrat Boise

ash4245 says:

Hanae Mori is a genius and this is a masterpiece and has the PERFECT balance of everything……….if she didnt have all the moss and had more florals, sweetness it would be a feminine smell

Katie Puckrik Smells says:

@eliasdonado I believe projection does vary from person to person, depending both on your skin (oily vs. dry) and the climate/weather where you live.

Katie Puckrik Smells says:

! 🙂

kerbinator says:

great review! I agree the EDT is slightly better calibrated like you say, but it only lasts 3-4 hours on my skin. so I have a bottle of the EDP as well – still a great scent.

keep up the mens fragrance reviews, you’re great!

Saikat Sengupta says:

Nice review. But I think Bvlgari MIB EDP is better than Hanae Mori EDP for Men.
