The Secret fragrance notes

Reviews of The Secret

yes, there is a resemblance to 1 Million, but to my nose no 2 fragrances are exactly alike...the bottom line is that I get a sweet/bubblegummy spicy leather with a hint of mint/grapefruit freshness and a whole lot of thick syrupy cinnamon with just a touch of apple liquor...not a bad smell...I really do get a pretty strong presence of leather...just a little too sweet for me to put this in rotation, but for the price you can't go wrong with this if it works for you...
for me, decant/sample worthy
Sweet Spicy Leather

For me this is much like 1 Million waterd down. Also with a lower price. If you like 1 Million, this one is a great alternative: cheaper and good smelling.

Yes, it is very similar to 1 million, and it reminds me a little bit of Original Santal too, but The Secret is crude and unbalanced by comparison, but costing 1/3rd of 1 million and 1/10th of Original Santal I can forgive its crudeness.
Between thumbs up and neutral, but honestly I can't give it a thumbs up because honestly it does not belong there.

Very similar to 1 Million, but not nearly as good. You can tell they ran out of money after the top notes. A horrible bitter leather note comes in and dominates the majority of the fragrance. Overall, it seems unbalanced and childish. Props to the top notes though, very much like 1 Million, which is a 5 star fragrance imo.
