Clean, fresh but comforting, aromatic and mild. This scent projects the smell of some wet, very mild, stocked wood outside in a cold winter morning under the snowed peak of a canadian mountain. This guajaco wood's juice is not a very masterpiece, it lacks indeed distinction and complexity but in any case is devilishly good and airy with a wonderful guaiac wood's drydown. Citruses and exotic spices impress masculinity, an hint of watered cologne feel and a touch of pungent edge. This fragrance is the aroma of mountain-wood (humid, perfumed, sweet, aromatic), it projects in part a pencil shaving's vibe and is a dive in a magic world full of nature, dark-green appalling trees and exoticism. Sillage is very good on my skin while the longevity is ordinary.

This is a close blend of citrus, spices, and woods, with guaiac wood predominating in the base note. It's a pretty linear scent, with moderate longevity and sillage. The thing I like about it is its barbershop quality, very straight-ahead and stereotypically masculine, the kind of thing you would expect to smell on some clean-cut, athletic thirty-something guy on a casual Saturday cruise around town, just wasting time and having some good, clean fun.
I love it too!
Very nice blend of woods and spices.
There may be some fruit note in, and I'm usually not fond of fruity scents, but I love this one!
I am a huge fan of this fragrance--on men. I don't find it the least bit sweet and probably wouldn't wear it myself, even though I like many men's scents and like woods in general. On my spouse, this one is warm and smooth, with a bit of spice, but the overwhelming impression is warm wood. Better for cooler weather, imho.
A tad linear at times, but all in all it's an impressive and potent fragrance. Apply with care, as it can be a bit much, particularly in warmer climes.
Very nice. One of my very favorites, behind Gucci Pour Homme and M7.
