Reviews of 273 Indigo for Men's an okay scent, with average projection, average sillage, and overall doesn't turn sour over time. But 273 Indigo for Men feels a bit pedestrian to me.

The bottle is fancy, if not a bit tricky to open as the cap fits on like the original "Pyramid" puzzle from the Rubik's Cube era! The potion itself starts out smelling run-of-the-mill citrus opening, settling down into an okay vetiver that leans towards lavender. After many hours, the scent feels like it's struggling to hang in there, though it never disappears entirely.

There are plenty of other vetiver-type options out there for one to enjoy that leave 273 Indigo for Men seeming, well, ordinary.

An absolutely awful scent. Not sure what they used as far the quality of the ingredients but nothing about this scent is a positive for me. I still have a bottle sprayed 10 times... anyone want to swap anything for it let me know lol.

Bergamot, vetiver, musk and vanilla, no doubt about it, but what about the woods!!!!!!.
The scent of sandalwood, guiac and other woods hits you in the nose like a baseball bat. But it is not mentioned neither in the notes nor in any of the comments here.
Sorry guys, but this is a wood scent no matter how you analyze it, with some smoky drydown that reminesces of incense.
And it is very good indeed, Gets my thumbs up

Fred Hayman seems to have an affinity for older fragrances. Both this one and his Touch pay homage to male frags from the past. In Touch's case, Brut was the inspiration. Here, 273 Indigo seems to share some DNA with Byblos, Ricci Club, Open by Roger and Gallet and especially Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme. 273 Indigo is a downmarket rendition to be sure, but if you like the citrus leather of the aforementioned trio or even Ho Hang, this one may appeal to you as well.

For the price of a burger and fries, this release offers a throwback aroma (even the bottle looks more '80s inspired than contemporary) that won't be on every other fellow's hide at the lounge. Also, I experience none of the longevity woes with this fragrance that others have noted.

I agree that this is strong up front but then lacks longevity but I don't remember any major "powdery" aspect to it (I sampled it about a year ago). I do remember a somewhat "synthetic" feel to it, or perhaps it was that I thought that this was a "cologne guy" fragrance. For me it totally lacked complexity and balance (along with aforementioned longevity). I could never imagine wanting to wear this, and would prefer to not spray anything on rather than this, though it is not outright sickening to me, just a bit loud but with nothing really to say. I guess it's like certain people who come to a party, want to be noticed, then leave early after stuffing their faces with appetizers and drinks. I guess it's very inexpensive for a reason. Because I think there are so many better fragrances that cost just a bit more, I can't imagine any reason to buy this, unless you seek the qualities it possesses.

I have to fly in the face of positive reviews and opine that I find the opening bergamot-laced-ginger (or maybe the other way around?) much too strong. The drydown is decent but short-lived. Just can't get over the unrefined opening note, though. It's like burying your nose into a jar of ground ginger.
