This one's a little hard for me to describe, at least politely. Regardless of the notes, each and every one smells entirely synthetic, almost as if every aspect of this frag was somehow created with shavings of an old tire. The predominant (overwhelming) charactaristic of this scent is this bizzare, waxy musk-like smell. The only way I can really describe this is an attempt to create artificial must.
No, I didn't screw up the spelling of "musk". I mean "must": Though slang it may be, it refers to that lovely, mildewey, half rotten stink of sweaty gym clothes rolled in a bundle and forgotton, only to be unraveled two weeks later and found to still be damp in the center. Think wearing the same socks for a week, stuffing them each night into te tops of your shoes so the footsweat never dissapates.
Beyond this strange, powerful robo-must, there's a hint of orange. It's also rather artificial, but still realistic enough to make envision orange peels slowly dessicating in the wastebin.
All that aside, I'm not hating this either. It's not unpleasant, and it blends nicely with one's own body funk at the end of a hot day, and seems to come out strong when excercising (though dims and all but dissapears very quickly otherwise). I've kept the bottle and worn it now and again, but more because I find myself drawn to its novelty than because I actually want to smell of sweaty robot.
Also the shower gel (waste not, want not!) is considerably more pleasant, perhaps because it seems milder and is instantly gone with the suds. The deoderant stick simply lies; it neither works nor provides the promised "24-hour fragrance". Works for keeping one's undercarriage slightly less funktastic, though.

Like people said, smells like oragnes. I also used to love the smell of oranges, but now I'm starting to re-think about it...
This scent is a very straightforward, simple and attractive fresh orange fragrance. The longevity is dismal and the sillage is ok –for a couple of minutes.
I gave a try at this on 2 occasions: before and during exercise. Before, the scent had limitations and it seemed like a very cheap but thankfully unsweet fragrance. Nothing to be amazed at but nice.
During my time at the gym, things got more interesting: everything improved, even the longevity. So I’d say it’s nice for exercise and for very, very hot days. I never thought of it as a cheapo scent, only a simple one. Strangely enough, a lot of women don’t find this attractive upon first sniff, but then again the ones I asked about this one only smelled it from the bottle, so that’s not fair.
Smells like oranges to me and it dont last long..... To bad I loves the smell of oranges.
