Do not blind buy this, unless you're looking for a cheap version of A*Men. If you do like Angel Men, then this might be worth a shot. It's so cheap, why not. On a positive note, wife said she liked it. Best I can describe it is a sweaty-guy smell.

Perhaps the best from this fragrance house! Cuba Prestige can be purchased for under $10 at Ross or online. Sweet creamy amber scent that is very similar to the Mugler A*men dry down. Nice scent and good performance for a cheapie too. If you aren't a true fan of A*men, this does the job!
Despite hearing the similarities between a clone and iconic fragrance, it's always difficult to believe until trying, and Cuba Prestige, the first Cuba that I've tried, surely lives up to the hype of being an A*Men clone. As far as scent, I actually regard Prestige as slightly less sweet than A*Men. In terms of projection and longevity, Prestige is clearly not the monster that A*Men (and most of its flankers) is, but the great equalizer is always price, and at $8 for 100ml at Ross, I'm not sure I've found a better deal yet. I liked Michael Jordan Legend (which I wore for the first time in a while today) as a cheap winter option, but even Prestige is half the price of Legend. Hard to beat, both in value and as an A*Men match. Surely it loses points for originality, but this is definitely one I'll keep and use plenty.
7 out of 10
I sprayed a half spray into the box at Ross, and the security guy (who has a poor sense of smell) said yeah man, that's good and strong! lol
I thought the scent was nice, but I couldn't figure out what it was at first. After I got home and pulled it up the A*men registered immediately! Win for Cuba Paris!
So to my pleasant surprise this smells JUST like A*Men from Thierry muglar! I mean just like it! The scent has a tobacco, vanilla, amber, smell that has a small bit of citrus. No need to worry about a harsh opening because there isn't one. A*Men has a tar smell in the beginning on here it opens up as vanilla and citrus with a tobacco dry down. Can't stop smelling my arm, hold on I'll continue typing in a second..........ok I'm back! Buy it you can find it for $7.99 at Ross. Remember this rule, if you see a Ross you have no choice but to stop by it.
