A very nice fresh scent with upper class ambitions. Citrus and a pinch of pepper are distinctive right away. After the drydown, musk and sandalwood becomes more detectable with something I would call fresh lemons in a leather bag.
I'm not sure what the heck is going on with your Cavalli Man scents, guys, but my Cavalli Man last all day long without having to spill half a bottle of it all over me or even reapply it after a few hours. 2-3 sprays is enough, on my skin at least. Of course, after six hours or so is gets a tad closer to the skin, but this is ok considering this is a fresh scent. It is in fact rather plain and linear throughout its lifespan, but still it is clean, elegant and vibrant. Makes for a great business or occasion scent on warmer days.
Unsophisticated as it may be, the sillage and longevity are very good, therefore the bipolar opinions as to the latter are surprising. Besides, it just smells great!! Thumbs all the way up!
BTW: Yesterday I sprayed 4 sprays of Cavalli Man on me and I was still smelling it after 8 hours' work.

This is my first review and I'm new to fragrance world. So, take it easy :).
True that it's acidic, powerfull citrus/lemon, powdery drydown. Funny thing, it stays more than 24 hours on me, even after taking a bath it was still on me. How about that?
Sure, its not a blind buy, there is nothing fancy about it. I think it's not for everyone but give it a try.
Trash, it smells like a bath foam or soapy detergent of third level, i know about the market reasons but it's a shame they keep on boasting this kind of issues.
The poor longevity is the problem with this fragrance. I like the interplay of spicy and fresh accords. It reminds me of Guerlain's Coriolan, but maybe not as sophisticated and complex as that scent.
Maybe cause I'm newer to the frag game, but I dont really get the hate towards Cavalli Man. Yes, longevity kinda sucks, but the scent itself is really quite nice. Youthful, but still quite elegant and more mature than most AdG citrusy watery scents. I get a nicely evolving fresh opening that dries down to a pepper, and lots of it. Only thing that keeps me from a thumbs up is longevity.
