Summary: This is a very pleasing, clean, modern male fragrance that reminded me a lot of winter holiday get togethers and galas. The sillage is respectful but teases, the longevity is generous depending on body chemistry. The drydown reminded me of extremely subtle version of Chanel's Egoïste once it has become less predatory and finally settled down lol. Being as it has familiar ingredients, I liked this fragrance for men because it smells like a MAN.
Summary: The achilles heel of this masterpiece is the sillage.Unfortunately longevity is very poor too. This is a perfect close quarters scent. Lovely and delightful scent in a nice looking bottle. You could smell citrus on top notes for a short time,and then the tobacco, amber and the ginger in the background but all mixed in a sweet way...the dry down is awesome.
Summary: I simply cannot relate to the complaints of this fragrance lacking projection and longevity. I wore this fragrance extensively when I was in my early 20s as my go-to night out scent. I vividly recall all of my clothes smelling like this scent: the many nights I spent after the club with a mate, leaving their sheets smelling like me - the many days I woke up and went to work, still smelling of this scent.
