Summary: Dare is very similar to IZOD. In fact.. picture yourself putting on IZOD.. waiting 2 minutes until the top dries down a bit. At this point -- is where Dare starts off, but don't get confused.. it doesn't have an opening identical to IZOD's middle.. rather that same smell, with top note power. I think that's the best way to describe it. As it dries down though it turns more into like a Dunhill Pure or Azzaro Chrome Sport.
Summary: Smells ok. I can see this as an active cologne, maybe just leaving the gym or w/e. Got it for Christmas from a friend who knew I was a cologne hounds, so I'm happy to add it to the collection. Although I've never worn it, it doesn't smell bad, but it's nothing to be excited about. Do I think it smells good? 2/5 Compliments from the ladies?
