This is mind blowing to my nose. As all are saying go light on the sprays to enjoy it truly else it can overwhelm. The Performance, Projection and Price are unimaginable.
Don't know whats the hype all about. It doest even last 45 minutes. If you want to waste your money go for it.
Beast mode without any doubt, the first time I put this on was during a heat wave in Canada. With 4-5 sprays I managed to get over 24 hours as the fragrance reactivated with my body heat. It's EDP concentration and projects really well. Even as I've used this for almost a year you get an easy 8+ hours. Days on clothes. This is one of the best bang for your buck fragrances I've gotten in a while. So far everyone I've shown this to likes it. It's Middle Eastern but doesn't smell like it.
There is a VERY tiny amount of oud in this. It's not some dirty barn yard stink type oud where it's over done the same way Bentley For Men Absolute is. it's a supporting note at best. This is really easy to wear especially for those who grew up in North America. It's a dark, alluring fragrance. There is a masculine aromatic type sweetness to this. Hints of lavender without it being cheap bathroom spray and will draw others in. I would describe this as a more masculine Paco Rabanne Invictus (less sweet and no citrus, however the same feel) mixed with some hints of leather. Nothing overly leather or abrasive. Someone described it as a bag of rubber bands on a fragrance website and I questioned their sanity or how bored they were. This is signature scent worthy and surprisingly easy to wear. Of course it excels in the winter and date nights or clubbing but it's hard not to find an occasion not to wear this.
Honestly is one of the best perfumes I ever smelled. I won't notice the difference between this one and the original. I can recommend it 100%
This stuff is strong, and I mean REAL strong. I sprayed it on my neck and it was headache-inducing. The smell wouldn't go away, and I couldn't wash it off. That being said, the fragrance itself doesn't smell that great to me personally.
I applied it for 3-4 days to see if it would grow on me, but this just isn't for me.
I think other people will enjoy this a lot more than I did.
I spent a few days seeing if I can adjust to it, but if you don't like something from the start, I doubt you'll like it at all.
That being said, ill still rate it 4-stars MAINLY due to the speedy delivery. The fragrance itself gets a 2.5 out of 5 stars. It isn't bad, but it isn't that great. This is probably better suited for a seasoned collector of cologne.
