On initial spray seemed like a blending error, I just get raw alcohol! But then seconds later I get the fresh top, nice lemons that quikly turn to hints of ginger, but it all blows over too quick. Base is nice, clean woods- but in the end- I just felt that this fragrance was reflected in its price, not because its cheap-smelling, but because it needed more development. Whats present there is nice, high quality even, but needed more, more of good things. I sold mine on Ebay in the end =[
Not bad, but slightly to sweet for my taste. The fleshy, animalic notes also found in Cerutti 1881 Amber are even more pronounced in this one. There's something about the spiciness of this frag that is a bit overdone to me. All in all, the overall impression is not an unpleasant one, yet something in this just seems not to "click" together with my fragrance taste.

Great fresh-oriental fragrance. It smells like spring or summer sun. It begins with natural lemony notes, to develop into rich balsamic woody and just a little vanilla. Really good, not foody at all, but still delicious. Lasting power it is ok. One thing though: if you wear this, please stop smoking. It will fade or it won't smell that good. Indulge in this balsamic fragrance that lasts and it is really enjoyable.
Fresh and exotic opening with very clear ginger tinge. Dries down to semi-sweet vanilla woody base with distant freshly green resinous shade.
Doesn’t last long on me plus the sillage is hardly detectible with moderate spays.
Simple little fragrance without any magnetism. Boring and easily forgettable.
The bottle is very neat.
A few people have said that it doesn't last...I'm on to my third bottle,as I can still smell this after a night out.It is cheap compared to alot of other fragrances out there,but in no way smells cheap.This fragrance is VERY understated.Everytime I wear this I get compliments...and why?...because it does smell gorgeous!! Grab yourself a bargain fragrance...give it a chance on a night out maybe,and you will fall for this one.
