Such a beautiful fragrance! It manages to smell like aromatic tobacco wafted on a breath of fresh air - almost like catching draughts of fine tobacco at an outdoor cafe. There's nothing suffocating, overly sweet or cloying about Cigar. It's finely blended, one might almost say orchestrated: individual notes are hard for me to isolate, and the effect is cloudlike, atmospheric. This is an EDT, yet it lasts for 7-8 hours on my skin and projects well for at least half that amount of time. Love it.

Cigar has to be one of the best values of any scent produced today. I think the name causes folks not to take it seriously. To me it's very similar to Quorum, but without the grapefruit topnotes and powder--a rich, deep and satisfying tobacco scent that doesn't evolve much on my skin. It's gentlemanly with a bit of soap and barbershop thrown in, and in my opinion has a nearly nuclear sillage, which can clear a room if over-applied (again, see Quorum). Good stuff. Inexpensive, but not cheap. And the packaging--well, what can you say, except, cigar...
Overlooked predecessor of the much adored Burberry London.
This is a big fat cigar, smoked in a crisp winter outdoor setting. Rather than focus on one aspect of the idea of a cigar, this seems to encompass all that is a cigar: trace of green tobacco leaf all the way to the ashes.
It is not as deep or sticky as Burberry London, however it is clearly the inspiration behind it. I actually prefer this to London, just cause it is different enough for me to stand out in a sea of Burb wearers. Layered 4 to 1 Cigar to Cerruti Image is a nice tobacco-floral combo.
Def worth a full bottle, especially at the give away prices it goes for.
This is the one cologne that gets the most compliments. It last all day and the bottle is cool. But most importantly, its a wonderful, unique fragarence that will set you apart from the rest. I highly recommend this one !
Balmy/soapy tonka-tobacco composition with a subtle musky/aromatic and cedary background and the initial (but durable) laundry freshness from the note of lavender flanked by geranium, coriander and sage. Really balmy as a less spicy sort of Havana or Opium Pour Homme. Almost opaque with a barely adumbrated ethereal mildness and some secret floral patterns. Virile by herbs and a touch of spices (from the name you can guess it could be rough, "boisterous" and really harsh while on the contrary this one is virile in a silky, "silent" and aromatic way). Significantly aromatic, yet almost minty. Decent, discreet (gentlemanly in style) and pleasant with a masculine vibe and a good balance. Not expensive and with a good duration (at least on my skin). Recommended.
