Summary: B*men is one of those fragrances that people seem to smell all kinds of different things. To me it smells like over ripe fruit and caramelised sugar, with some vanilla thrown in for good measure.

I could say more but my lack of expertise in fragrance critique makes further comments unnecessary.
Pros: Draws Compliments, Great Smell, Great Value, Long-Lasting
