Excerpt: This one is quite synthetic creation. Despite this its quite interesting fragrance and giving much more than its own price. Very balsamic, quite spicy and very herbal smoky fragrance. It's reminds very much a smoke smell at cathedrals / church. Take in mind that its quite unusual concoction. It's not typical oriental sweet overpowering fragrance, its kind of cold oriental e.d.t. with herbal / balsamic character. Like a ghost in the dark forgotten cathedral.
Excerpt: With the name, bottle, and packaging, I think they probably wanted to create sort of an "International Man of Mystery" vibe. That's not quite what I get from it. To me, this is a comfort fragrance. It has a warm spicy glow that makes me think of fresh-baked cookies, and a smoky incense that's very tranquil. For me, wearing this is almost like aromatherapy. It's relaxing and just makes me feel good.
Pros: Great Smell, Great Value, Long-Lasting, Sensual
Summary: IKONs first minute is one of the best scent I have ever smelled. Chanting like a classic male shampoo, it is clean, fresh, even peachy. 60 seconds of marvel, and comes the shaving-cream. I suspect a conveyor-belt method behind the heart notes, even if the notes suggest something special. I felt the same fragrance in many other perfumes for men, and I really like it whenever I am facing (or nose-ing) it. We could call it Axe-effect.
Excerpt: Went for a blind buy on this and very pleased with this cologne, hold very well and smells like a very spicy and high end cologne. Smelling this on someone you would never think it was a cologne so cheap. This would be a good cologne if you like masculine spicy cologne and you want to go for a blind buy.
Pros: Draws Compliments, Great Smell, Great Value, Long-Lasting, Sensual, Sexy
Excerpt: Superb fragrance, and niche smell. Starts out with a great Woods and settles to a very unique Smoke/incense note. Lasts about 6 hours, and with medium Silage. Very masculine, Superb. Best Value fragrance I have ever found.
Pros: Great Smell, Great Value, Not Overpowering, Sensual
Excerpt: I love this stuff. Smells great from first application until later in the day. Truly a man's fragrance, no chance of confusing this with the ladies perfume! No sissy, powdery smell, just good old macho.
Pros: Clean & Fresh, Great Smell, Long-Lasting
