Meh, nice and sweet masculine fragrance, but too weak on longevity to really excite me. Bought it based on the notes but should've tested on the skin first. Nice smell, but just not worth it for the money in my opinion.
I wore Endymion a few more times. It's a nice fragrance. But, I thought my brother would enjoy it more than I would, so I gifted him a full bottle. I was using a sample to test it out over the last few weeks. He loved it, and I always love to see a fragrance find a home where it will be appreciated the most. :)
Endymion is nice...but it's not as nice as I was hoping for. To be fair, I need to give it more time before I have a firm grasp of it's character. I like it much better in the dry down than I do in the opening. I pick up a synthetic wood smell that I'm not crazy about, and I believe the musk note and possibly the cardamon note reminds me of the Amouage house vibe that I dislike so much. I'll give it a few more attempts, but even with all that said, it still has a decent dry down and when it becomes a skin scent, it's pretty nice.

Great fragrance; you can get the same aroma for less in Armani Black Code. I couldn't help but think about Armani Black Code--perhaps, the newer reformulation and recent name change, Armani Code!
Clean, musky, with a little spice thrown in...very pleasant overall. This feels very safe and manly, like a classic after shave. Not a barbershop scent but more towards $5 after shave gel that you smell on your dad. Has that cooling bite to it. Doesn't project much but seems to be hanging on in longevity and rising body temp also helps projection, so summer might be best to improve performance. For the price, best to sample first.
The fragrance is nice but a straight copy of a century old cream Boroline.
And Boroline's sillage and longevity is much better than Endymion. And costs 20 times less.
