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.
Definitely a warm vanilla, coffee, amber, pipe tobacco scent with a hint of citrus. A bit too sweet for my taste ... but for the price (about $10 at Ross) it ain't bad. The ladies like it. Wear this at night.
Cuba prestige is indeed very similar to A*Men so it gets a 0/10 for originality but on the other hand it is a very nice sweet smelling fragrance and almost as potent as A*Men, but maybe a little less harsh. Good value for money :)
I'm among those who are not fans of Angel Men. I find its mixture of burnt coffee and vanilla extract too hammering. Cuba Prestige rounds off those edges and for the first six hours or so, it is quite a nice alternative to Mugler's fragrance. After that, unfortunately, the economy of ingredients betrays the scent and it becomes more or less a straightforward cheap amber, which I simply can't abide, even in higher quality offerings. If you like your fragrances underwritten by Baskin-Robbins, then this ought to float your boat.
I won't turn to this aroma often, but for those rare times when it'll hit the spot, the low financial investment makes it an easy keeper. I prefer Animale Animale for a similar, superior sweet bottle.

Very similar to Amen. If you like Amen, you'll be OK with this. Vanilla, spices, coffee notes. Powerful. Lasting power great. Big thumbs up from me.
