Reviews of X for Men

Off the top I get sweet lemony citrus blast with wood and what smells like pineapple with cinnamon.

As time moves forward the wood notes become stronger though surrounded in a haze of cinnamon and that pineapple like note. Jasmine also rears it's head briefly before the wood aspect takes over.

I have to this scent smells exactly like Costume National Homme which is the fraction of what this costs.

Genre: Woody Oriental

A rich, dark, spicy oriental in the Sheldrake-Lutens manner. The cardamom note appeals to me, and the vanilla/woody drydown is extremely luxurious, but I'm not convinced that X is distinct enough a scent to warrant the outrageous price. (This from someone who doesn't flinch at buying Amouage attars and Montale's oudhs.) X is clearly for the guy who has to know hes bought the most expensive item on the shelf. Hes not going to shell out for something that's original or quirky - it just has to smell of money.

Really disappointing! Very light and VERY synthetic. None of the spice notes are strong, distinct, or natural at all. Murky pool of vanilla with a very faint tea-like note. Maybe a pop and gurgle of pepper...don't blink or you'll miss it! Boring fragrance. Breaks down in 2 or 3 hours.

I love woody spicy scents since I was first bitten by this perfumery bug, and it is the first time I kinda don't love a woody spicy scent that much, due to its too much spiciness (cinnamon) which actually ruined here by labdanum right from the beginning, Interestingly don't get Pineapple rather i feel a burnt metallic sort of vibe which reminded me of Bvlgari Black from top notes, but anyway the X for Men by Clive Christian has got nothing special as expected, an ok woody spicy scent imo.

Excelent, exotic, sultry and special. Spicy, but notntoo much. Mossy, ambery...a real beauty. Let's leave price aside, since it is a personal issue. It is an aroma of perfection, cozy and warm. The base is very similar to Amouage library collection Opus VI, at least to me. Maybe Amouge is a little richer.

cinnamon, amber, and oakmoss are the prevailing notes. The cinnamon is especially strong in the drydown. I enjoyed this scent a lot.
