This is nothing to be scared of. This is probably one of the sexiest men’s fragrances on the market. I love it so much I could use it as a room spray. L’Artisan Parumeur Méchant Loup translates as the “Big Bad Wolf” or “Naughty Wolf”  and it is a charming and seductive fragrance for me. I know it works on me. It is complex but not confusing. It is intriguing. It is warm and inviting. It is rich and spicy and woodsy and very masculine. It smells like a “strong” man both physically and mentally. It is the whole package. It contains, rich pepper, star anise, licorice, sandalwood, honey, hazelnut, myrrh, tonka bean and cedar. This fragrance is a jewel because it is so woodsy and very foresty but has this warm and sweet hazelnut accord. And what lady dislikes hazelnut? This hazelnut is warm, roasted and a bit burnt to keep in “manly”. I wouldn’t call it gourmand because of the heavy use of woods like cedar. However, the cedar smells like it has been dipped in honey and left in the sun. The dry down is amazing and has a pretty good lasting quality. The dry down is a bit honeyed with that hint of hazelnut and rich tonka bean. It is heavenly and I can’t stop sniffing it.

This fragrance is masculine but isn’t made exclusively for men. But, what fragrance is? You can wear whatever fragrance you want to. I haven’t actually worn this on my skin yet. I’d love to though, later, in cooler weather. I’d like to see how it wears on a woman. But, I just love it as a men’s fragrance because it is so interesting.

It is available in 50 ml for $95 and 100 ml for $135.
