I was suckered in by those top notes. Oh, those fun and fruity top notes. Then the honeymoon was over and I realized I was stuck wearing a nose-stinging synthetic mess. Now, don't get me wrong: I don't equate synthetic with bad. I don't necessarily wear cologne because I want to smell like something from nature. This, however, was the harsh, characterless kind of synthetic that gives the rest a bad name. Not so much a scent as a smell. I don't even necessarily know how to classify it. Watery, maybe sort of minty...? I just didn't care for it. As with all reviews here, this is just my opinion so take it with a grain of salt... but if you sample this one, wear it on your skin before you commit to a bottle because it will definitely change a lot after a while.
