Summary: Just bought the vintage bottle of Le Male (before it was reformulated to make it weaker scent and sillage wise). The older version lasts VERY LONG on my skin, maybe one of the longest lasting fragrances I own.

Summary: This used to be one of those youthful scents I used to love welcoming in the winter time with. Projection was tremendous with just two sprays, longevity fantastic at 12-14 hours in the moderate cold. It was exciting and could still be subtle if you played it conservative on sprays.

Summary: A Clubbing Classic That Created a New Genre... I found the smell of Le Male to be very distinctive from the rest when it came out in the 90's and great for the group age I was in (20's).

It first starts out as a fresh, clean scent, then as it wears on you throughout the day, it becomes softer into lavender and a powdery scent, but still powerful enough to notice.
