Altika may not be the most original scent in the world, but it's still very good. It's a "fresh" fragrance, but it's not dull like most of the genre. It's mostly cedar with a touch of vanilla to round it out and give it a little sweetness, and some sort of woody amber or "ozone" note to give it a crisp, airy smell. It's quite a simple scent, but I actually find this quite invigorating and refreshing, even though I normally can't stand these types of fragrances. I don't agree that this is only appropriate for young college-age guys - a guy over 40 can easily pull this off well. It doesn't last very long - about 3 or 4 hours - but this is not an expensive fragrance and it smells really good, so it is worth picking up.
MY RATING: 7.5/10

Quite a nice fresh summer scent, nothing spectacular but the mint note is interesting.
My man still has a bit left of this scent. I do smell a slight mint to it, but not much. It's forgetable, really, and the scent doesn't stay on as long as Homme Nature or the two Eryos. Average scent for young guys.
Fresh up to the point of being a very likely accepted everyday scent, a correct, but on the down side with sweet ( with vanillic and fruity) touches unspectacular scent.
