It's a musty fougere with a fascinating, high-keyed cedar reminiscent of sage and dill pickles - not unpleasantly, just enough to give it a touch of piss and vinegar. It's like wearing a tailored business suit with the first three buttons of your shirt undone. Pretty dashing.
Wall Street smells to me like Bulgari Pour Homme Extreme with more notes. The fact that I acquired both blindly within two weeks of each other is uncanny. The fact they have identically poor longevity is eerie. Wall Street features that same sort of ivy/tea scent that dominates the Bulgari offering but it's smokier, spicier, mustier...like it belongs in a low-lit drawing room. It's such a strange juxtaposition of old money and fresh vigor that despite being a product of the 80's I can't call it dated. I enjoy this, and if it performed a little better I'd consider tossing my bottle of Bulgari. But hey, maybe they'll layer well.
In redux - considering their similar structures and performances, if Bulgari Pour Homme Extreme is a silver rum, Wall Street is a gold. Make sense?
I love you Wall Street, it's a "go to" scent for work or out-and-about on the town.
I get cedar out of this but not synthetic, cloying, heavy or cheap!
SirSlarty is right when he mentions its longevity, it is not long but we all know when it comes to scents it's better to go light more so than heavy.
They did choose a good name for this, reminds me of a gentleman's study room or a gentlemen's club lounge area where everything features wood or is wrapped/bound in leather.
I still can't believe what a hidden gem this is! Go out and get it and prepare to stand out and feel great for a low price!!!!!!!!!!
TWO Thumbs UP
A green fougere much like Brut with a bit of spices added. Not bad. Seems to not last too long.
