Summary: This is a strange one. At times I can smell most of the notes clearly, while at other times it comes across as a thick vanillic syrup with a cedar base. I'm still trying to figure out why, perhaps it's due to what I had been wearing previously. I always enjoy taking the cap off and smelling the sprayer, though I certainly don't do this every day. I no longer view this as a spicy Oriental fragrance, and I don't find it offensive in any way.
Summary: Guys (or gals looking for a present)... This cologne has an under-rated fragrance, but the longetivity is an issue. The fragrance is sweet, but not too sweet, with a hint of spice that finishes with a vanilla and powder scent. If you are looking for a great deal, and want to try something new, go for it. For the price you can't beat it. To address the longetivity issue, I put the bottle in my brief case and reapply as needed.
Summary: I have heard many things about Adidas Victory League, the Boss Bottled Rip off thing was among many reasons why I decided to get this fragrance. This screams of Vanilla and for me that is good. It is quite sharp from the beginning and you can smell the Pear blending in after about ten minutes. The Cedar comes through but is not as prominent as the Vanilla and Pear. Their is a hint of Basil which makes the blend work.
Summary: This is one of the better Adidas fragrances, which I guess isn't saying much. Victory League is a warm, sweet but light oriental, with both the cedar and vanilla being the predominant notes. It's not original, and it smells like a lot of other light fruity orientals (e.g., Mustang, Tonio Lamborghini Feroce, Carlos Santana For Men, etc.), but it does what it does quite well. Just the fact that it doesn't smell like the other Adidas fragrances - i.e.
Excerpt: the smell can be holding for 4-6 hrs, if you working in office. After that, the smell are reduced.<br /><br />You known that, the fragrance will change type from woody to more fresh type when it mix up with small portion of water! That's Coool!
Summary: I agree with another reviewer, who said it is reminiscent of Allure. I think having this has shown me something about Allure--its development is much more interesting. I don't get the connection with Boss Bottled at all--VL seems much drier. But I appreciate the effort to produce something a bit higher in quality at drugstore prices.
