I think the name is a misnomer, which is common I suppose in fragrances. This is more like the original Stetson tamed/calmed down a bit. The original is a bold floriental while this is a calm oriental with more vanilla and woodsy notes. It's light enough for the summer however it feels rather synthetic and more like a cheap cologne instead of a quality fragrance.
The blurb for it is: "A blend of deep woods, rich suede, and invigorating bergamot." Don't expect to smell much, if any of these notes. There's a contrast here between a typical "old aftershave" quality, with some lavender and "fresh" aroma chemicals, and a light A*Men type base (no tar, not much if any patchouli), with some vanillic element. I can see the appeal but this doesn't feel like much effort went into creating it. One of the better "super cheapos" but otherwise a good study in mediocrity.

My brother bought me a 1oz bottle of this several years back. I prefer it over the original Stetson. It has a sweet smell to it. Reminds me of playing pool. The wife doesnt care much for it though. Been sitting so long it has stuff floating in it now.. no idea what it is.
i used to wear this and its gotto be the best aftershave/cologne for it's price range! the woodsy notes are excellently done and it maintains it's masculinity and freshness which make it very sexy and wearable
the woodsy notes are very well done, which makes this similar to hugo by hb, and this is probably the best stetson scent and the only one that is not overly dry and "old fashioned" smelling
This one is a vaguely candy-like vanilla with maybe a little honey and cinnamon, but it's not artificial-smelling to me. Sometimes I get a little tobacco smoke in the base if I sniff really deeply. I think it's a very simple but nice cheapy, where the vanilla is muted and dusty, like the smell of a sweet shop back in the Wild West, with the fresh timber of the building thrown in. I used to think that vanilla equals too feminine for me, but I think it's too restrained in Untamed to be a problem for me. I may not get it again because I don't normally seek out vanillas, but I'd be OK to wear this and can still enjoy it, and might even prefer it over more expensive ones. It's much less cloying (i.e. almost not at all) than you'd expect it to be.
