2 MAN

Eau de Toilette

by Comme des Garcons

The Scoop
The fragrance that's causing crazed mobs to empty the shelves in Europe and Japan is here! CdG 2 MAN is a revision of the original 2 (in the silver bottle), taking it in a more woody/incense direction and creating a whole new animal. Smoldering at first, 2 MAN roars out of the gate, declaring its boldness and contempt for simpering little focus-group scents that are a mishmash of "manly" notes. 2 MAN's simmering and incensey opening unfolds into an unusual combination of nutmeg, vetiver and subtle saffron flowers, each one appearing like chapters in a book. As the pages turn and it evolves on the skin, a subdued mahogany and leather bring up the rear. Daring but not brash or loud; complex yet never persnickety. It's a sure-bet for a modern classic.

I'm hooked on this awesome scent and pretty much wear it on a daily basis. The more CDGs frags I sample, the more I love this house! 2 MAN is destined to be a classic!

This is incredibly good incense in liquid form! I bought this for my husband to wear because it was so delicious. Now, I get to purloin it whenever I care to! Supposed to be a fragrance just for a guy? No way! Love, love, love on my husband and for myself!

Fantastic! This is my "go-to" cologne if I want to be noticed. When first sprayed, 2 Man comes on really strong (think campfire smokey) and then mellows during the dry down revealing notes of leather, wood, smoke, and incense. It seems to evolve throughout the day, fluctuating between incense, leather and vetiver. A+ fragrance!

I was worried about the reputed longevity of some of the CDG line, especially the Incense series. This scent really has legs. I can catch a whiff of it occassionally if I end up twirling around and wearing a tie, the collar somehow puts off a scent trail. Anyway, if Acqua de Parma Colonia lasts 4 hours on me, this one is an easy 6 to 8 hours. It does not project like a Lutens or Tauer, but it is not a total skin scent either. I do get woods in the base and what is described as white smoke, and in 80 degree weather, it is doing nice. Will turn out to be an all year, all purpose cologne for me. I'll use it when I dont need another scent to pick me up or feel important, but this is very nice.

Mr. lawyerman from Sac.~women love it when men comment on their fragrances and are always welcome to participate. Some scents for men are just irresistable. I'm smart enough and confident enough to not let marketing manipulate what I'm "allowed" to wear. In the year 2009 we no longer have to ask if it's okay to wear something we love. We judge for ourselves and take posession of what we feel suits us. We also have the right to express our opinions openly either positive or negative. This complex and extraordinary fragrance suits me to a tea. Not an everyday scent~but when I wear it~I am proud to make it my own. And men and women love it on me as well. Brava CdG for making such an expanse of choices. And, for helping to blur the lines on what's supposed to suit which sex! Excellent!

Infatuated with CDG, and smelling many of Rei's scents i fell in love with her(their) play of masculine/feminine smells. This cologne has a very masculine smell and i love it, like previous commentors i agree that the cedar/woodsy smell will fill the nose with harmony. I am more than happy (mate too) to now own it, along with 888 which is a lighter scent, i must say cdg is one of my most favorite designers/flavorists!

this scent kicks arse! anytime of the day or night my friend, you gotsta wear this...
By Gee - from Sydney on 11/26/2008
Just as women are devastating in pants, or a suit as in 'le look smoking', a certain kind of woman... predatory, seductive, intellectual feels very at home in deep throaty dusky scents that may be marketed towards men. On a woman, not a girly flirty frilly woman, they are comfortable. They are comfortable for women who are confident in their own power. They wear what 'bespeaks' their chemistry, character, mood, not what their told. If this threatens certain men, that is their fear and weakness; the scent of which would turn off such a woman anyway.
By Morgan Le Fey on 11/26/2008
Extremely nice scent. Very luxurious. Very musky and peppery. I can see what all the fuss is about. Quite a sophisticated scent that doesn't come across as a playful, uplifting happy daytime refreshing scent. Could definitely be worn during the day, but it's more ravishing and seductive. Very very similar to Montale Greyland.
By Jason - from Canada on 9/17/2008
This is an amazing scent. Very woodsy, incensey, and deep. I wear this in fall/winter. My husband doesn't like it on me, he doesn't mind it but I think he wishes I smelled like a regular woman, florals and whatnot. Oh well, too bad. I tend to wear more macusline scents and have recently discovered that I only want to wear CdG fragrances, they're simply amazing and like nothing else. They are everything I want in a personal scent - bold, unique, mysterious, edgy and mesmerizing. Now I'm wearing Kyoto and come fall I will start wearing Avignon. Lovers of these two should try 2 Man.
By Anonymous - from DC on 7/6/2008
CdG 2MAN is a smoky, incense perfume that sits upon a wonderful cedar note. What sets this apart from a lot of woody competitors (mass market similarly priced examples: Gucci pour Homme I, Hermes Terre d'Hermes) is the light almost ethereal way the smoke, incense and cedar interact making this an overall light perfume. It has no citrus and just a small hint of floral notes (hardly noticeable) Although light in scent, the scent lasts a long time, and while somewhat linear, it does develop a little bit. CdG is noted for their avant garde "abstracts" as well as thier studies in variations of single notes. 2MAN reminds me of when you take the bets of what you learned and apply it to a more traditional approach - and you know what? They pull it off, and it is unmistakably CdG and a little bit avat garde.
By Anonymous - Professional from Upstate NY on 2/25/2008
Dear harper from La, I guess you have a point about scents being genderless, hence the CDG line. This being said I cannot imagine my 75 year old dad wearing me moms perfums. Oh and why then has Comme des Garcons listed one of her number 2 scents as #2 MAN if all scents are genderless? Even Rei understands there are scents which are clearly on the masculine side. I'm just saying.

This stuff is HOT. Who Cares what woman think of it. Any male cologne is better than female perfume.
By Anonymous - from Cape Town on 1/19/2008
dear lawyer and law professor from Sacramento CA -- scents have no gender, my dear man. if they smell "masculine" or "feminine" to you (or anyone) it's just marketing stereotypes. and if they smell good or bad to you (or anyone, male or female) -- well, that's just personal taste (and what goes inot *that* for any one of us is a very wide and complex field.) cheers, hh h.

The perfect cologne for evening. Enough said.
By effran - student from n.y.c. on 12/20/2007
I'm sorry but could we please have fewer women commenting on men's fragrances? I promise you won't find me wearing white diamonds or chanel. It's not helpful to have so many women passing judgment on what smells right on them as opposed to what smells right on a man. Weird is right.
By Anonymous - lawyer and law professor from Sacramento CA on 12/12/2007
I couldn't agree more with the description provided by luckyscent. It's fierce, smoldering, rooty, incense, burning, resinous, sharp vetiver all rolled into one. It is nothing like 2. It's masculine, it's odd, it's fantastic. Sometimes upon smelling the cap I'm reminded of a home cooked meal (meaty, rosemary, spicy burnt). Smell it and you'll see :)
By Anonymous on 11/1/2007
It's ok at best.... nothing new that I haven't smelled in other men's colognes. I also found the lasting power to be pretty weak. I highly recommend "#3" instead for something new and refreshing. I'd probably wear this during the fall/winter and wear "#3" during the spring/summer.
By Anonymous - from nyc on 1/13/2007
Smells like the church I used to go to when I was a kid. Smoky incense, cedar chips. For cold winter evenings and classy events.
By Terry on 1/7/2007
i love this fragrance for me and i'm a very feminine woman! it smells so sexy and mysterious on a man. on a woman though it ends up being sexy, dark and surprising. it catches you off guard. just layer it with a girlier fragrance ladies if you are frightened by the idea of wearing a man's fragrance, and men please wear this.
By Anonymous - painter from minneapolis on 10/12/2006
I like all of the CdG. Cdg2 Man is very versatile & elegant, but very similar 2 Gucci PH. i wear 5 scents forever: Himalaya, CdG 2 Man, Tea for Two, Fumerie Turque & Terre D'Hermes.
By Alianresza on 8/30/2006
I am completely in love with this fragrance. And I am convinced Comme des Garcons are without equal when it comes to being unique... head and shoulders above any other fragrance by any other designer I have tried.
By Igor - from Milan, Italy on 7/22/2006
First introduced to #2 by a friend who works @ Allan Balzarian in Boston five yars ago. I was so in love it and still my favorite. Now, 2 Man is doing the same. Great summer/daytime cologne. Fantastic!
By Emilio - from Boston on 7/21/2006

By dounz - beautician from lebanon on 7/4/2006
My husband won't even try it for me. He sniffed the vial and said it smells like p*ss and refuses to put any on his skin!!! My son, 14, also declined to give it a whirl. He'll wear the drugstore body sprays by Axe (yikes) but not this. So I guess that means it stinks worse than Axe. I'll never know what it would do with body chemistry...I'm definitely not trying it either because I'm a GIRL. Thumbs down on CdG scents so far. Not impressed.
By blissedgirl - from Portland OR on 4/11/2006
I read somewhere that this is like wearable art. I liked that comment because you really can't wear this everyday. It's too complex. Although the times you do put it on you feel like a piece of art. Weird.
By Anonymous on 2/22/2006
I loved this from the bottle, but when my husband applied it, he instantly smelled of a burnt-out campfire! So much for chemistry!
By A - Art Deco Dealer from Newbury on 2/11/2006
I have worn fragrance for the last 11 years. I have never ever smelt anything as amazing as this fragrance. It isn't overpowering, but it has staying power. It is so masculine but in an understated way. It really is an olfactory work of art. I don't think I will ever wear anything else again. Thank you CdG.

A little too manly for me, but it dry's down nicely enought that I am still a women while wearing it.
By thelma - from baltimore on 7/14/2005
My girfriend instantly liked it. She said it is her favorite to date. At first you don't smell everything but as the hours pass, the notes come out and you find yourself really enjoying the different scents. It lasts a long time as well. I'm hooked!!! The next day the scent was still on my jacket, smokey and sexy. An amazing company!!

I love this--I'm a girl but I wear it--reminds me of past loves...(sigh)
