A so so fragrance with a so so price.
It will offend nobody, but it wouldn't set the world on fire either.
I would say that is an adecuate fragrance for the young starving college kid, it is better than many cheap drugstore colognes and it is at reach for a tight pocket.
It is a pleasant scent that will be better appreciated by an unsophisticated nose, but to old farts like me it is too simple to be enjoyable.
Sillage and longevity are below average.
Originally I thought this was not bad, in the mold of Oscar or Halston's letter fragrances. Upon further wearing, I find it falls apart and stays so close to the skin as to be like I'm wearing nothing. Why pay for that?
There are too many options to choose from to waste with this stuff.

Tried the sample on the counter before getting a hair cut after my wait and the hair cut, smelled my wrist again and immediately bought a bottle when paying for the cut. It smells very classic and masculine. It is strong and projects well, doesn't last incrediably long but gets the job done for sure. It smells unlike anything in my collection and fills a void for fresh new school barbershop scents. Rive Gauche smells like a razor, scissor, hot towel barbershop and this smells like a clippers and gel one. Not bad just different.
I like it !!
Classic - nearly timeless !! and this one is not 2009 as it is not 1990 !!
Not your average lovely fruity/lemony - it has got some citrus but it has been fuelled with spices
It has got a great smell of well groomed and it does go well with all the Classic line from American Crew>
BUT in my opinion it does have a little bit of wildeness in it - just enough to make really interesting and naughty !! - I would explain this by saying that this scent goes very well with men's natural scent.
So this will not break ground or your bank account - but this is well made and it has a bit of an animal punch into it
I recommend it
