    Nice start

    Nice citrus notes to start off with, but tree is a very boring wood, amber and moss - or a miss - drydown that is very dull on my skin. Gone after two hours.

    Abysmal fragrance.

    Wow...this is one of the worst fragrances I've ever tested. Chemically synthetic blob of a mess that has zero redeeming values. Hard to believe that anyone with a nose could make something like this and assume that people would put it on their bodies and like it being there. All of Original Penguin's fragrances are a bit odd and they're all chemically synthetic plastic type smell, but this one takes the cake. Whatever type of blending or ingredients they use it would be much better in something like a glass spray or a cleaning product. Whoever makes this line needs to go out of business and never come back.

    Pros: Like the color of the bottle.
    Cons: It's cheap enough to make a horrible blind buy."</p>

    Pretty nice fragrance

    This is a surprising fragrance that has an initial attack similar to cedar (but cedar is not listed in the notes).

    In the dry-down, It quickly changes to a slightly-powdery, sweet fragrance that is pleasant, but close to the skin.


    The sillage was fairly low and the longevity is about 4 hours on my skin.

    The lingering notes produce a fresh soap and musk scent that lasts to the end.


    This would be good for office, church or dating, but would do unnoticed in a club environment.

    Pros: Light, non-cloying
    Cons: Fades rather quickly
