Speaking of noses, nobody knows who made Sung Homme, and while it chugs along into it's 30th year of continuous production, it gets a more-divisive reaction from perfumistos because it's commonly available, making it's perceived flaws less tolerable. Top notes are caraway, juniper berries, pepper, artemisia, basil, sage, bergamot, lemon, galbanum, bay leaf and petitgrain; middle notes are aldehydes, carnation, jasmine, caraway, rose, pine tree needles, geranium and spicy notes; base notes are leather, sandalwood, fir, patchouli, musk, oakmoss, vetiver and cedar.

I always get one of the tan tan men varieties at Gomaichi.

A friend I used to go there frequently with always ordered it.
I don't get much petitgrain but I don't doubt it's in there; the middle of sage, thyme, lavender, geranium, rosewood and fir is more readable to me, although the mossy base of cedar, sandalwood, musk, and vetiver is definitely the star attraction after the first hour. If I missed an alarm and had to get to work for a meeting super-fast and couldn't take a shower I would reach for the Sung Homme. Nothing at all resembling irish spring in this stuff, I don't see how someone could mistake them for being similar at all. I am getting lemon, lavender and pine matched to men's body wash and a bar of fresh soap. Conceptually this is Inception-level stuff - an EdT based on a common, hygenic and instantly recognizable soap scent which was itself likely based, if loosely, on classic masculine colognes and aftershaves. It has a sweeter opening top smell, but that off-gasses after 10-15 mins and you are left with what is essentially a quorum clone.
The sung hon men is kind of a sweet-sour-spicy broth. While a more refined version would have been much appreciated, I have to look elsewhere given its current incarnation. Technically it's an amplified green, herbal, aromatic fougere, but the notes are rather beside the point here. Great for everyday wear or a romantic afternoon.

Sung Homme lasts a good while without being overpowering in the early going. If our email does not appear in your Inbox please check your spam folder. I'm always torn between the Tan-Tan Men and the Sung Hon Men, but most times I will opt for the Tan-Tan Men. Does the scent of Irish Spring have downmarket associations because of its affordability and availability in just about any place that sells soap of any kind? Drakkar Noir is closer to irish spring than this stuff, by far. As with any high-quality fragrance, price can often be a barrier when replacing a signature scent.

Well, let's just say it bares a remarkable resemblance to Irish Spring Soap 1970 , and wouldn't be alone in directly drawing parallels to commercial bath products, as Cabaret Pour Homme 2004 would also be a direct aping of Coast Soap 1976 , but doesn't get the flack that Alfred Sung receives since it was designed by a famous nose and was discontinued, getting instant veneration from vintage fans. Although its namesake perfume, Alfred Sung by Alfred Sung, is by far the most popular of the collection, all of the perfumes offered in this line are soft, lovely, and sure to make you happy.
This scent beautifully combines citrus and green floral with musky and woodsy notes. What is that notoriety you ask? It's soap, but it's more of a pure bar soap smell with some tobacco later on in the dry down. Price differences on exchangeable items are dependent on the price of the returned item, and the item it is being exchanged for. I don't like it at all. It is sort of twice removed from the accords it's trying to capture, and intentionally so.
Huge initial blast that resembles Irish Spring. Happy to say that it's every bit as soapy as people describe it. To me, Goma Tei's seems watery by comparison. Known for the classic and feminine scent it proudly provides, Alfred Sung perfume is perfect for any age group looking to enhance their assortment of perfumes. An inexpensive, high quality scent from the Chinese-Canadian designer.
I do get a nice clean soapy floral feel with a little bit of kick - probably the sage and lavender. If your into soapy fragrances or enjoy wearing them then this is a must. I can't really detect individual notes too much but I would say it's like slightly spicy soap with a hint of sweet green notes. There is a screechy, headache-inducing undertone to this fragrance that isn't apparent in the first hour, but slowly develops over time. Pros: Purple bottle juice , huge projection and longevity, great soapy fragrance. I wish the bowls were a little bit bigger for the price, but a bowl of ramen and splitting an order of gyoza is one heck of a satisfying meal.
