Lavender, petitgrain and tarragon with a lime freshness added - a very pleasant opening. Then I get a clove note and a fairly dark patchouli towards the later stages of development - these later stages are a bit duller on my skin and less convincing. Performance is respectable with moderate sillage, adequate projection and a longevity of seven hours on me. Suitable for spring.

Overall a decent aromatic fougère whose later stages are not a well-made as the top notes. To me it hovers just at the border between a positive and a neutral score and although it may develop better on someone else, I will opt for a neutral score here due to its somewhat less interesting base notes. Try before you buy. 2.5/5

This one is dry all around with a slight citrus opening. It is followed by some green notes (probably tarragon) and eventually settles into a not so good patchouli and clove base. Not overly terrible, but not anything good either.

Can't help but think this is very near to Azzaro Pour Homme.

It is indeed very green and has blatant notes of ferns on a light woody base. It seems a little light for an EdP, but nonetheless is affordable - you get 125ml instead of the standard 100ml.

The atomiser could be a bit better. It sprays very little and can sometimes leak/appear to be of cheap quality.

Nonetheless, it is an OK fragrance. I gave it the thumbs up - I wouldn't buy it for myself, but would certainly use it if it were given to me. I am a big fan of the equivalent after shave balm which has a big following amongst straight razor / wet shave users.

On me I get grasses and ferns followed by a mild vetiver/resin dry down. Very nice.

Top: petitgrain, lemon
Mid: tarragon, lavender
Base: vetiver, clove, patchouli
I was expecting an interesting chypre. All I found was a very citrusy dry opening. and an unpleasantly heavy patchouli-clove drydown.
