I love this scent! It's one of my favorite after-shower, lay-around-in-the-house scents. Like 4711 only not so light-and much spicier. I also love it on cool mornings when I've got alot of running around to do. It makes me feel light and free, and I leave a big wake for those who come after me.
I don't smell the anise-at least if I do, it's not liquorice-like, the way I expect anise to smell. This fragrance is a teriffic mixture of my favorite spicy aromatics. I like to say, when talking of Azarro pour Homme, that this is what OldSpice SHOULD have smelled like. Like OldSpice this one will last you all day! I love it.
