The orangey-ginger top with a touch if bergamot freshness with a pleasant cardamom - pleasant. This is followed by a dark rose - a tad synthetic but respectable. It falls down in the rather generic and boring woodsy-musky vanilla base.
On my skin the sillage is moderate, the projection adequate and the longevity is around five hours. 2.5/5
Hard not to like--but harder to love. I used to wear this often and loved the dusty rose. And even though the dry-down was an uninspiring descent into powderlandia, it still wore pretty well. Not great, but the initial musky florals each time held such promise. Not a bad fragrance in its niche of the woods. One could do far worse.

This one is really what almost everybody here has already written.
BABY POWDER .
A nice clean soft and unisex smell.
I can only imagine myself in pyjamas laying on a comfy sofa or in bed.
IMO it nothing that I would like to wear for a night out...
I like it,its pleasant smell!
Very sweet, not very interesting, and frankly not very masculine at all. This one really didn't work for me at all. Which is a shame, because I *love* the design of the flask, it would look so good in my small collection...
Genre: Woody Oriental
Jaïpur Lite. Pretty but conventional bergamot and aromatic top notes are soon joined by some sweet cardamom and nutmeg and very soft, smooth woods. The classic woody oriental heart is pleasantly warm and rounded, but also a little bland. As it settles Brit turns decidedly powdery, with a very distinct tonka bean note that keeps the composition sweet right the way through. Sadly, the late drydown is ruined by a ubiquitous raspy wood base accord that I’ve come to identify as the smell of “cheap.”
Until that nasty drydown, Brit, like the closely related Armani Code, is a nice, inoffensive scent that’s bound to please most noses. However, if you’re going to do a sweet, powdery woody oriental for men, “nice” is not enough. This is a very crowded field, and I think there are far better scents than Brit to be had among the competitors – Jaïpur Homme and Habit Rouge not the least among them. It’s not as if either of these are all that costly or hard to find, but if you want something similar and just a bit less good (read: “more generic”), by all means go for Brit.
