    I have no idea why this is called Vetiver Extreme. To my nose there is nothing extreme about it. When you first spray it you get a blast of alcohol smell for the first 30 seconds or so. While I'm not a big fan of that, I know as alcohol evaporates it helps lift the scent off the skin and I did find this was one of the better performing scents as far as projection I've tested so far (it is by

    This was a crazy fragrance to review. I put it on in the morning after getting ready and my first reaction was it reminded me of mouthwash or toothpaste. Also after wearing it for a bit where I sprayed it and especially the top of my hand started to tingle and cool. After about 30 minutes I had the involuntary reaction of trying to wipe it off of the back of hand. It actually startled me so much

  3. Mancera - The Aoud

    Freshly on, WOW, what a rose. Syrupy and just a hint tannic. Gives me a mental image of a huge, blowsy, thousand-petalled damask rose in full bloom, saturating the air with fragrance on a hot still summer day. I can tell there's a whole structure of other, more bitter notes underneath it, but they're holding up the rose, not cutting through it. This is a glorious fragrance experience.

  4. CK Euphoria Men

    Damn, and I so wanted to like this one.

    Just for a minute it went through a phase of smelling exactly like a gorgeous BPAL I sampled years ago, one of the Zorya fragrances I think, probably a spicy-floral; at that point I was completely convinced I needed a full bottle.

    I was worried about this fragrance because of the Tonka note in it. I thought maybe it might make the scent turn a bit too feminine on my skin. I'm happy to report that isn't the case at all. This fragrance really grew on me as the day went on. When I first put it on I was concerned I was about to have more performance issues like Grey Vetiver. And just to be clear, this is not a projection beast.
