A well balanced floriental, a very light rose on an ambery base. It has a promising start, but after the first hour and a half it fades very quickly to where it is barely noticeable. Because the longevity is weak, I would score this on a scale of 1 to 10, at a 3. If the maker would amp up the longevity to last at least for 8 hours, than the score would be an 8 or 9.

Repulsive, it gives off that old ladies from bingo night vibe. Ugh

Fabulous (if you want a niche-like unisex rose scent "on the cheap")! The sandalwood is so gentle, complementing the other notes perfectly (it's almost like a combination of incensy sandalwood and soft leather/suede). Overall, this is very subtle, so if you want a strong amber fragrance (as in Ambre Sultan), you can forget about this one. Considering the prices on this one right now, however, you can buy a dozen 50 ml bottles of it for less than the price of many 50 ml niche ones! If you like fragrances such as Prada Infusion d'Homme, but want something a bit more powdery/floral/ambery, rather than "clean," this is one to consider (why not just buy a bottle at current prices?). Some might think this a bit "soapy," though, depending upon what soaps they are familiar with (due to the slightly powdery floral quality). For me, the fougere accord is "soapy," along with spicy florals (as in JHL), not what you find in this one. No one note dominates here, but you can detect them. It's not very sweet, like so many recent men's fragrances, and it does have a slight "play-doh" quality, but that is gone in 2-3 hours. Longevity is very good and projection ("sillage") is moderate with one spray to the chest. In the future, I will try to get a little on my shirt to see if that's better. Give it some time to allow the amber to warm up and bring out the other notes, and don't smell it up close on the skin. In fragrances, you don't always get what you pay for (meaning that sometimes you get a lot more for your money), but it's often the case that you can't smell the "cheapos" up close on the skin.

UPDATE: I'm enjoying this one more and more. This is for people who know what they are looking for, see the notes listed, and say, "yes, I must get a bottle."

This smells like something an old lady would wear. Smells just like really cheap powder. I can't believe they call it a mens fragrance

A very good rose scent, complemented with sandalwood and amber, very nice. A little powdery, probobly the iris.

How on earth did they think they could make a good rose scent and get away with it, when the ones that sell are generic crap. All IMHO of course.

This smells more to me a straight up Oriental fragrance. Powdery, warm, and sweet. It starts off smelling smoky and warm, like dark caramelized maple syrup with amber. Rose, coriander, and musky notes underline the fragrance, drying down to traces of sandalwood. Very notable fragrance that is economic but done well in the classic style of perfumery.
