Wore this the last two days on a throwback because I've had a few bottles sitting here forever.
You know, I don't mind it. Sure it smells synthetic, it's cheap as dirt. It reminds me of a cheapened less complex Giorgio Red.
My rating is based somewhat in price but unlike the 1990s no one really wears it as much anymore due to all the fresh scents, so all I can say is isn't bad these days, kind of refreshing like people wearing Royal Copenhagen which no one seems to wear either despite wide availability (and I can spot that one a mile away).
The descriptions here are accurate, but to my nose this comes across as bitter and synthetic.
Wow... if I had one scent that brings back memories this was it. This was the Cologne that all the guys got for Christmas when were in high school. I have not smelled it in years, but I remember it was very strong, and cheap smelling, girls never really dug it.
I would call this Preferred Red, because it is like a simplified version of vintage Red for Men by Giorgio of Beverly Hills. I do think this is better than the new version of Red for Men, but I'm giving it a neutral for lack of originality. If Red wasn't released first, I would give this a positive rating. It's a more "mature" scent, but not too "old" (not that it matters to me), and the ingredients seem at least good (for a "cheapo"). However, because I already have enough vintage Red to last me a long time, what can I do with this other than put it on my swap list?
Preferred Stock EDC Spray Gift Set Review
at $10 for 2 1.7 oz bottles in a gift set left over from the holidays this is a deal
strong, long lasting, masculine.
what some people may not like is the sweat (sandal wood) smell under the vetiver middle and citrus top, though this one has never elicited negative comments
a great deal for the price
Pros: strong, dark, long lasting
Cons: strange sweat smell"
