I own about 15 bottles of cologne and this one is easily my favorite. As others have mentioned, girls love it too. I've received more compliments on this cologne than any other one I own, and I've told to keep wearing it.
I would definitely say that this cologne is meant for cooler weather, I especially like it on a nice winter evening or a snowy day. I've decided to make it my official Christmas eve fragrance. I wouldn't recommend it for teenagers, a little mature for them.
As far as longevity goes, I must disagree with those who claim this has no lasting power- in my experience, this stuff lasts quite a long time on my dry, white skin.
All in all, this gets two thumbs up from me and two more from the females.
As far as sillage and longevity go, I must disagree with those who claim that this has no lasting power. It stays around quite nicely on my dry white skin
I bought this when it was overpriced crap! Still crap, but now on sale for $30. Too much hype. Kinda old smelling, not very fresh and young, especially for the Abercrombie image.
Starts off with an almost sickly smelling soap, which thankfully disappears into a nice subtle leather. I don't seem to have as many problems with sillage as some reviewers- I had one friend tell me that they were able to smell me from about 15 feet away (with a modest 2 sprays an hour beforehand). After a while though, this stuff fades, but never truely leaves the skin.
One thing to note is that girls like this stuff; I've been told that I smell "very manly", and have been encouraged to wear it more often.
The bottle is also nice- made to resemble a flask, it works well with the cologne.
All said and done, this is decent stuff, especially considering the $16 price tag that it's currently at. Not the best frag, but by no means the worst- a more mature scent for the Abercrombie line. On my own I'd give it a neural, but it gets thumbs-up because of the female-compliments!
Edit: Going back to a few of my early reviews. My bottle is gone, traded for a bottle of AdG years ago, and I'm downgrading Ezra.
I've gained quite a bit of experience in the fragrance world since I last smelled it, and Ezra was simply a cumbersome soap monster that was unsubtle and brash. The soap was very loud, Hotel soap that the 2012 release of Woods improved upon.
Ezra is going for $300 a bottle on eBay (though who really pays that?), but for less money you can pick up a bottle of the more recently discontinued Woods and smell the better version.
Downgraded from from Positive to Negative, sorry old me.

I like this one. It's actually pretty good.
It has a clean and "modern" scent?
Anyways, it's an alternative cologne. Cause I get tired and bored after awhile with the fruity Aqua Di Gio styled colognes.
This one is better than Abercrombie's Fierce cause it does'nt have that "synthetic" smell to it.
It's kinda cool and unique.
Hold on a minute here...this isn't that bad. Seriously, this is very interesting. As of this review, Dunhill Pursuit has 8 thumbs up, 1 down and 1 in between, yet E Fitch settles down to a obvious likeness of Pursuit.
This starts out very soapy fresh and then within minutes it turns leathery, very deep smoky leathery, much like the leather the bottle is wrapped in. There is a bit of syntheticity at this point...a rubberized fake leather smell. Within the hour it turns into Pursuit, albeit a bit more manly. I wore this 2 days in a row and got compliments. This is good stuff, don't be fooled by the naysayers. The ladies surely dig it for sure.
