    Musk, musk, musk, spice, and woods. This was a hard one to wear guys. I'm not a fan of civet but to my nose this had a strong animal urine smell to it. It dominates the fragrance throughout the life of it and makes most of the other notes hard to pick up. Somewhere deep down I do pick up some spices and some woods. Also the musk is countered by something that helps try to smooth

    This fragrance was provided me by a fellow basenoter, due to this I am unsure if it is the male version or the original which was marketed as a women's fragrance. To my nose this is a good but not amazing floral and Sandalwood fragrance. It comes off as very feminine to me and due to the musk it smells slightly dated to my nose.

    Arden for Men Sandalwood is really, different. It's old school to the max. Initial spray completely caught me off guard, it has a top of green herbal notes, it almost has a medicinal smell. Lavender, sage, basil all is noticeable during this time and all add to this overall green vibe. I don't notice much wood at all in the top notes. This opening lasts for quite awhile, at least 30 minutes,

    This is in the very similar vein to Tiffany for Men (Vintage) that I tried yesterday. It's got a bit of that 80's powerhouse feel to it. I do however tend to like this one a bit better because the powder note, while present isn't anywhere near as strong as the Tiffany. Actually, I found this fragrance to be pleasant. What caused me to rate it a bit lower was on my skin I got a very green,

    ***First let me just say that this was a basenotes member that sent this one and I really appreciate that***

    The rating for this one isn't because this is so bad. It's because I simply hate powder notes and this one has a strong powder note throughout. I do pick up a nice sandalwood note in it. Someone who likes a powdery note or doesn't mind powder will probably like this
