A true Oreiental fragrance
This is a true Oriental fragrance to the T. The first spray is very sweet but not sweet like Joop! Homme.It's a very romantic smelling fragrance and when it gets to the drydown, it becomes heavenly. The vanilla and the balsam come to play and makes a great combination. I don't get a lot in the mid, but I do get great projection. I don't see how anyone can find this fragrance offensive except maybe if they think it's inappropriate for casual use (it sort of is because it's so sensual and romantic). Longevity and projection are huge and the price tag is $30 on ebay. Can't beat it. This fragrance is not so versatile though; this should be worn in winter and fall, and on cool nights in spring and summer. Think of it in the same category as Le Male or A*men.
