I don't think I get any of the top notes in this one. It goes straight to the base, and I love it! The chocolate and tobacco are what stand out the most. I like what another reviewer said about this having a "mall vibe". That's exactly what it is, and it's directed at kids who hang out at the mall, whether the perfumer was going for that or not.
Sillage is great. It's snowing now, and when I went out it seemed to become stronger. I can't say about longevity yet, as it has only been a few hours, but it's still going strong.
I was expecting a lot when I heard about this fragrance, and I'm not disappointed. Great release by Calvin Klein!
UPDATE: The longevity is decent. I usually stick to one spray with most of my woodsy/tobacco scents, but I need multiple on this one. It doesn't last as long as Versace Eros (a longevity beast), but it works.

Wearing from a travel size/sample. Definitely made for a younger crowd, and has that 'mall vibe' I generally detest, but this has just enough things going on in addition to the cherry tobacco to keep one's interest, for awhile anyway. Not my thing, as it's too sweet but not quite cloying either. Just enough black pepper (as well as patchouli and dark chocolate) to lift it up and keep it from being stifling. Reminds me of a body spray or maybe a decent room freshener.
I'll give it a neutral rating because it's just not good enough to fully endorse for anyone other than teenagers, but it doesn't smell "bad" either. Hasn't given me a headache yet anyway, which is always a bonus.
I should of bought this last winter but I hated this sort of scent at that time ..my sense of smell has now changed and developed, which leads me back to this fabulous cheapy..I get a bright orange/amber and tabaco fragrance that dances on the skin on first application and then mellows into something very cosy and fruity. There is no way you can over apply this fragrance I take the top off and splash a good amount all over myself, within 30 minutes it's a long lasting skin scent with occasional projection if body heat rises . I'd say this can be worn all year round also as it isn't cloying.

Smells great for being a CK scent...great longevity/power, and awesome in winter...sugary & memorable! :)
Just a wonderful fragrance and very different to anything else I have in my collection. Starts off citrus and slightly sour like the original CK one, but give it a couple of minutes and a wonderful spicy, cherry/vanilla combination comes out which stays for the duration. So many compliments with this one and it lasts reasonably well too. If you don't have it - buy it.
