Summary: I purchased this after tried it in a department store, then found it here in Amazon at a good discount but the smell is not even close as the one I tested in the store, it's away too weak , just goes away in a few minutes. At first I thought was original, nice bottle and box; but the smell said the opposite. If you only need it for one hour then buy it, otherwise get it from another seller.
Summary: I really do not trust amazon for colognes now. I tried this one at Macy's before I bought it at amazon. But I was disappointed with what I received from amazon. My other bad experience was with L'eau D'issey (issey Miyake).
Summary: I purchased a bottle of this cologne around last November from this same listing and I LOVED IT! The smell was amazing and lasted. I recently re-ordered two more bottles. I opened the first bottle and the smell took me by surprise. It was horrible. It had a very strong rubbing alcohol smell and did not smell like the previous bottle I received. I figured maybe there was a defect with the this bottle so I opened the second bottle and still the same issue.
Excerpt: Received this as a Christmas present, tried it twice and never again! Sharp initial smell offensive to the nose and overpowering. Odor reminiscent of engine starting ether. Does not age well on the skin. Cannot hold a candle to Drakkar Noir. Perhaps some may appreciate the scent, but not me. Smells as offensive as Diesel.
Summary: The package that it came with was damaged. It looked like someone had opened it already. The spray cap was off and was not on the bottle but inside the box. Once the spray cap was put on, it wouldn't spray properly. It would squirt instead of spray. I have learned my lesson to buy cologne off of amazon. Especially if it's shipped out from New York. There are so many fake products sold in NY. DO NOT BUY, they have a NO REFUND policy so I'm stuck with this fake cologne.
Summary: Bottle would not spray, and it's almost impossible to remove the top in order to transfer to a different bottle. Waste of money. Product also can't be returned because Amazon deems it a hazardous or flammable material.
