Blind-buying KISS HIM?

I was about to leave the local fragrance shop yesterday when the owner pushed one more cologne: KISS HIM by KISS Cosmetics. The owner is a nice guy, and he seems enthusiastic about it, so I let him spray it on the back of my right hand.
It was way too spicy in the opening, and the scent reminded me of a strong body odor. Repulsive.
I decided to be polite and thanked the owner, before driving off. Ten, fifteen minutes later, the spiciness started to diminish, and hints of sweetness began to rise, but that sweaty smell remained roughly strong. In fairness, KISS HIM radiated a powdery vibe towards the drydown, but that unpleasant combination of notes was still very hard to ignore, as it kept poking in the background. More than an hour later, I scrubbed it off by washing my hand with lukewarm water and an apple-scented handsoap. Interestingly, the scent of KISS HIM was faintly present on my hand, and that vile note(s) was finally gone, thank God.
I'm a fan of sweet fragrances, but this isn't my style. I'm not even sure if this cologne was inspired by KISS (the band), but if it is, KISS HIM is a very good representation of how sweaty band members smell like after performing on stage.
If you are planning on buying this blind because you are a fan of the band, all I can say is "you've been warned." Best of luck to those who bought this already.
