Foul sense memory evoked with this. Smells EXACTLY like a urinal cake...those nasty pink wax deodorizer doo-dads. Specifically, one drenched in used malt liquor! Other reviewers talk of geraniums, rain, etc.? I am flummoxed. This is bad. Try before you buy (try it twice with the consensus of those who might be around when this is worn)
The epitome of the sharp, angular herbal-floral concoction. A strange fragrance, one of the first i inhaled in my adolescence taking it from a shelf in the bedroom of the old brother of one of my best friends. I looked and tasted it recently in a shop inside a commercial center and it was a flash back. This fragrance owns uniqueness, it's tremendously sharp, silent, citrusy, rooty and metallic, the monolitic smell is something that reminds slightly a detergent soap and for the rest urine, rain over the asfalt and brass. I detect lime, bergamot, geranium, may be violet,cedarwood, fluid vetiver and herbs. Shiseido probably reproduces synthetically the laundry-detergent effect the others reviewer talk about. Unique, out of the mainstream but very hardly appealing for its algid refractoriness.

I think I was 16 or 17 when someone give me this present, probably it was 1988, 1989.
A strange scent, green and fresh but no more memories at all about it. Very hard to find, I don't think it is on production again. Not a shame anyway...
Its great because it is the simplicity itself.I guess in 1979 this was quite up to date but of course today...one will encounter very easily 101 cheap shower gels which have probably inherited this fragrance composition.Green and citrusy,the citrus ,being the main theme here,is sparkling and just slightly sharp but that's how it is supposed to be in compositions like that(or WAS supposed to be back in 1979 anyway)and once again...simple -...yet masculin which for me is quite important factor when forming my final verdict.
A smooth, dry green floral fragrance with a somewhat powdery (almost dusty) woodsy base. There may also be a touch of white musk in here, providing a slight "laundry detergent" or "cashmere" quality, but the predominant scent to me is green and floral. It is, for this sort of scent, very long lasting - almost all day. The fragrance I would compare it to is L'Artisan's L'Eau du Caporal, only without that fragrance's signature mint. Pretty good stuff and not dated at all considering its 1979 release date.
