I should have stuck with the YSL L'Homme, but it's not bad

Summary: I'm EXTREMELY particular when it comes to cologne. I don't like the heavy/husky colognes or the Fruity/Berry scented colognes. For men, or for me at least, an ideal cologne is noticeable if you're giving a hug or in very close proximity. I had some samples I used and I thought it would be a nice change from my YSL L'Homme. However, I wish I could exchange them. The YSL I can wear every day or for night occasions and it isn't overbearing.
Summary: First off... super fast delivery so that's why the three stars. Zero stars for the cologne. It smells good but is this for men? I mean, really? ...with a predominantly overpowering base of vanilla? Where's the spicy musk undertone to tip the scales away from it coming across as a really feminine smell? Is it for man's man or more for a, uh well... notsomanly man's man? I'm not here to judge either of those preferences, but I swear that it reminds me of an ex-GF.
Summary: 1 Million falls into that sweet, masculine gourmand category with heavy accords of vanilla, amber, candied orange and cinnamon. In small doses and for a short amount of time, 1 Million is seductive and captivating, yet the more I'm subjected to the smell, the less I enjoy its cloying sweetness. I can understand the craze surrounding this rather popular scent, but for me personally, I prefer much smoother and more subdued masculines to this one.
