Intriguing. There, I said it. Violet leaf came to mind right away, but it is not listed in the ingredients. It's a green soapy AND milky fragrance, some sweet floral notes and a bit of woody. It reminds me of what an artisan's version of Cerruti Image could smell like...less perfum-y, perhaps more wearable.
For a unique knock about daily wearable dressy or not frag, this is a good contender, if not perfect. Worth the price for sure.
I remember as a youngster watching a James Bond movie. I can't recall which one, but in one scene he mention that something smelled like a tarts handkerchief. Back then I couldn't imagine the odor, I have found it in this fragrance. This is what one would imagine a hooker must smell like at 4 AM. Cheap smelling with no redeeming factor what so ever.
Recently I was able to score some vintage bottles at a good price. It's nice to see and smell that time can't touch a fantastic cologne. Obviously vintage is best, I have a recent bottle and the differences are striking. The new versions are extremely synthetic, and have a burnt waxy smell. Vintage is very deep and earthy, and flowery. My 13 year old insists the bottle looks like the poop emoji, and it does. A little stretched out though.. Kids. I remember when this first came out. It was very popular and then kind of fell off the radar for me. Expensive then, and now vintage is expensive. But, vintage smells amazing and this has a great place in my wardrobe. New formulations are crap.

Very, very nice. The lavender and ylang ylang are prominent and lovely. It is inexpensive, but there is nothing cheap smelling about this fragrance. It's well worth the money. Better smelling than colognes costing five times as much!
Simplicity, it seems, can go very wrong too.
Cheap-smelling, this one doesn’t last too long and it has no personality, no name, no face, no nothing: like a one night stand minus the sex part and the excitement, only regrets.
It’s really strange that I don’t like it, because I (in general) never say no to a fruity fragrance for men, but I guess it doesn’t go well with my skin.
