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"
Mix some Sung Homme with some Red from Giorgio of BH, give it a splash or two of each Drakkar Noir and Pino Silvestre and voila, you have Preferred Stock.
It has its drawbacks but it is a pleasant scent that sells for peanuts, how could you not like it?
My thumbs up
A very nice fougere for a cheapo.
There are better offerings in the genre, but for its price, it's hard to beat!
I match it with the after-shave and find it smooth and not overpowering at all.
