Great scent if you are into your fresh scents being heavy on the herbal-green side, like Lanvin Homme Sport/Live Jazz/ect.

Personally, I'm I moved on quickly from it. But still a very good offering to those that like this style of "sport" fragrance. Longevity was surprisingly good too.

Nice citrus with an orange and grapefruit vibe. As others have said, this is a very refreshing fragrance. Definitely a gym fragrance. Received a few compliments wearing this in the gym. Even the box states that is to use without moderation before or after any physical activity. My signature gym scent. Will purchase this one again!

A nice fragrance for the summer, but the opening has a funk to it that smells a bit like something rotten. Once this goes away it's actually a good tea based fragrance with enough spicyness to keep it interesting. Projection and longevity are below average, but it's very inexpensive and would be great from a young man or for working out at the gym.

An excellent, fresh, citrus/green fragrance. A real winner.

Eau Maximum opens up with a bright orange note, with some grapefruit, and herbs. The herbal notes are very well blended together as they come off as just one herbal note. As it dries, it maintains the top notes, and brings in a sweet, and sort of dewy patchouli note along with a rather exotic metallic mint note. Different, and most enjoyable. I also get some vetiver in here, but not the typical vetiver. Not earthy, not resinous, not aromatic, nor dirty, as you would expect from most vetiver's.

Excellent, different, cheap. Although not entirely different to me, as it is quite reminiscent of L'Eau de L'Artisan.

Projection isn't bad, but longevity is horrible, I get no more than 4 hours on a good day.

All the reviews here are correct - this fragrance is extremely refreshing. What's amazing is that I found this at TJ Maxx (an American discount store, for our reviewers that are not American), and it was only 7 or 8 dollars. It is quite fresh and "sporty" like a Hollister or Abercrombie and Fitch cologne, however it is by no means cloying, nauseating or boring - this is refreshing and different. It opens up with a refreshing blast of Lemon - the Lemon is combined with other Citrus, Orange and Grapefruit. Sage and Patchouli give the fragrance some herbal body, while Cocoa & Cinnamon gives it a bit of sweetness. Synthetic but at the same time natural. Very cooling thanks to the Spearmint; this is a perfect fragrance for summer. This fragrance lasts a while for the type of fragrance it is - a perfect fragrance for a young person, and for anyone else looking for a refreshing pick-me-up or summer cologne. Great for the gym as well, the price you can find it at makes this a steal.

Notes (from the Grooming Lounge):

Top Notes: Grapefruit, Spearmint & Orange
Middle Notes: Lemon, Sage, Rosemary & Coca Leaf
Bottom Notes: Patchouli, Cinnamon & Nutmeg

Energy fougere! Eau Maximum is leagues better than I expected it to be. A blind buy for sure, and only $8(!), but I was attracted by the box, which actually described the fragrance notes, like a good wine reads on the back of the bottle, preparing you for the contents. I am literally astounded that the synthetic ingredients actually smell authentic in this. The rosemary and spearmint combination is fantastic. And it works like it reads; Eau Maximum is an invigorating fragrance. I feel like I should be running about right now. The incredible herbal/citrus top receded fairly quickly, but this fragrance doesn't become a bother even after multiple sprays, so reapplication is refreshing and guilt free. I'm going to have to find more of this because it's not going to last the summer.
