sky high markup and a so so unoriginal and forgettable scent
Not a bad attempt at a rip off of Bulgari PH. However, I just can't justify buying this at $70.00.
I'm going back over my old reviews from when I was new to "the game" and adjusting them.
Cologne 41 was a very different scent for Abercrombie. 41 is linear and extremely inoffensive, composed mainly of Cucumber and Water notes which may remind some of laundry detergent. Maybe a small dose of Melon as well, just to complete the Fresh Aquatic stereotype.
All said, 41 provides this in a way that was different than a lot of the Fresh Aquatics at the time.
Longevity and strength are both pretty minimal with two sprays on either wrist, gone within an hour. Requires several sprays to maintain a presence.
If you can find it on eBay for cheap it might be worth it to you, though the bottle is guaranteed to be older at this point.

Pretty decent stuff, nothing new and innovative though. Nice and fresh.
