I didn't wear this because it is a man's scent, but I sprtized all five men's scents from the sample pack on my hand, and this one was my favorite. I wore the scents for 30 min, and indeed, this one had the best dry down. It has a gorgeously rich wood base that I could not take my nose away from, and the citrus top notes are very well blended into the rest of the composition.
I can't honestly recommend this for women, but men, this is worth the small price you'll pay to ship over a sample from Grasse. IMO, these fragrances are better than Creed in quality and composition.
