    I must agree with the other reviewers here: It's a wonderful scent let down by a too-brief longevity.

    I haven't smelled anything like this one before, and I can't think of anything similar for use as a reference. Not to say it's avant garde or the second coming of secretions magnifique. It's perfectly inoffensive and makes easy friends, but not at the expense of being jejune.

    At the price, the White Elixir is a unique scent and a positive steal. If it had greater longevity, I could easily see it become a person's go-to daily-wearer.

    FYI: I also own a bottle of the body lotion, and layering it with the cologne aids the scent's stay while subtly adulterating it in a conspicuous but still pleasant manner.

    the citrus opening blends in perfect harmony with the spicy/pepper background. easily worth triple the amount it's selling for. great projection also while not le male it gets the job done. the whole line has a bunch of at leasts good/quality frags except for black pepper.

    It starts with a wonderfully sharp and natural smelling grapefruit buttressed by some cedar, rose and and pepper. This is a wonderful scent, very high quality ingredients. Sillage is average and as an EDC I get about 5-6 hours longevity which isn't bad for a citrus pepper. Easily worth double it's price if you're looking for citrus pepper this is a no-brainer.

    This is a clean scent, sharp very mild sweetness brought initially by the grapefruit. This is a steal of a deal, buy without reservations.

    Good thing Bath and Body Works carries this one CHEAP ($20 for 75ml) because the longevity is extremely poor.

    That's OK though, because what it lacks in duration it more than makes up for in everything else. Elixir White is clean and soapy - very much a barbershop scent. I would compare it to Creed's Original Vetiver, Mugler Cologne and Tom Ford's Blue Neroli.

    It's a perfect 'airplane' scent. It's not going to offend anyone, and it's pretty close to the skin. You can smell it, but others will only get the occasional whiff when you scratch your head. A good work scent if you carry a decant in your pocket and freshen up at noon.

    The grapefruiit is the best part. The bright, sunny beginning leads almost immediately into Platimun Egoiste territory, with the woodsy/spicy middle...and ends up clean and smooth. You could almost wear it to bed if you wanted to.

    Spray liberally if you want this one noticed, or don't (like I do).
