Awesome 80s styled powerhouse that smells dirty, like Drakkar Noir blended with sweat and rotting fruit. Imagine if you added a little Kouros, Moustache and Zizanie to Drakkar Noir, and you get this.
Though Jivago is an American company, I can't imagine a lot of Americans wanting to wear something this daring, retro and strong. The raunchiness reminds me of the smell of overly ripe fruit or "stinky" cheeses like Limberger or Camembert. This could be a big hit in Europe, where guys have more guts when it comes to wearing fragrances.
This was a great blind purchase for me, A+.
MY RATING: 8.5/10
Good points in Tony T's and Andrew's reviews. Not really headache-inducing, but more suited to the older set. It smells good, but kind of dated. My one wish is that it were stronger -- it is almost in powerhouse territory, but lacks that definitive push over the edge. Still, it is available on the cheap and smells good enough. There's plenty better, but this isn't bad at all.
untolerable 80's masculine in the likes of trussardi uomo.. big civet and mossy woods. perfect for big brawly over 40 guys but that's it. a headache inducer!
Just got this in the mail...smells exactly like Drakkar Noir except this takes you almost imeediately to the Drakkar dry down plus some civet-like scent. i have always enjoyed Drakkar Noir until it got waaay too popular (kinda like Aqua di Gio now). I see DN is making a small resurgence, can't get it cheap anymore. Plus, there are quite a few copies out thereright now, including Beckham Instinct and Phat Farm Atman. Connect is the closest to the real thing, and I think DN's dry down is its genius and graw...Connect gives you all that and then some instanteneously.
