For a scent named SAMOURAI, this is hardly cutting edge. It starts off fresh, finds some mild cedar and then fades rather smoothly to light vanilla - all within 3 hours. Rather simple and easygoing though a harsher critic might call it an attempt at minimalism gone wrong.
Based on word of mouth, I wanted to like this more, but I basically smell a nice mild aquatic that dries down into vanilla. For fans of vanilla, this is probably great, but it's one of my least favorite fragrance backbones, so I can't really enjoy it.
Reminds me of Canali's line of frags especially Black Diamond (which is awesome). A good cologne without it going overboard. Fresh woody with a bit of vanilla.
i really like this one, & its not so readily available,so you dont have to worry about smelling like ten guys in the same room
Fresh and deliciouswith a fruity,creamy opening.The fruit lasts but combines with floral and leather notes (maybe the tarragon)on the drydown reminding me of Joop but more complex.
I love this fragrance-it moves from fresh and invigorating to sexy and sensual and on me it lasts well too.This one's a winner!
