I like it. Being a fan of lighter lower sillage scents this fits the bill. I get the bergamot based citrus opening warmed a bit by the not too dry or woody vetiver. The citrus blends quickly into a warm ambery note with perhaps a bit of light musk. It is not a complex scent, although, I can detect a hint of resin.
Projection is good at first then retreats, longevity for me is about 6-7 hours. The nice thing is this fragrance seems to be a good choice for public spaces and works in summer heat without being too cloying. And it does not hit me the way some synthetics do. It is a simple lightly citrus manly frag with a hint of sweet warmth without a floral note. And it is cheap, FWIW.
A good option for a low / mid priced fragrance.
You might regard this as a contemporary interpretation of citric scents, in that its top notes are acquatic, making of MbyAB a fairly common, far from original, fragrance. On some occasions I can perceive the presence of vetiver, while base notes are quite traditonal though, reminding me of such classics like Signoricci 2.
One more thing that comes to mind is the fact that sillage and longevity are not in line with those one finds in low / mid priced scents, making out of this option a good value for money in the case you are looking for attributes most people identify with quality scents.
Pleasant scent, light and casual - nothing special. I give it an Eh!
I think it's a good scent. I heard from girls that it's very interesting and sexy... My girlfriend liked it very much on me!
Another failure of the Banderas- Puig collaboration. First i loved this scent, as the first impressions reminded me of Roma Uomo and Boss Bottled due to the strange, understated, powdery, almost baroque sweetness, the fruity spicy, rich warmth, but once these elusive notes faded away, another, more nasty and intoxicating sweetness remained. Like in Diavolo, overdone synthtetic vetyver imitation with and excessive piney touch, however that dissimillar to piney smell, that a pine-smelling
car-freshner seems more natural. Among the Mediterranean notes there is nothing reminding of the Meditteranean, no aquatic, chypre or citrus notes, reminding at best of the sandy beaches on a day of undearable heat and sweat, sand, so much sand and such hot air, that one might choke on it- the same happpens if one uses
this scent. The commercial starring Banderas in person is equally a failure full of empty promises.
