I like this one, spicey anise and absinthe notes, i also get that faint root beer as well. Real Absintheur here and i like root beer, so win win. After a couple hours I get something quite close to Gaiac 10. Longevity lacks for sure, but just reapply and your good. Projection is balanced, not overwhelming. Thumbs up!!
It's gonna be a love hate with this one, depends on the mood and setting. First time i tried this I was put off by how powdery it was, not really my forte, but it seems to be growing on me. I agree that even in this cold skin drying weather its projection is great even on my skin. Dont be put off by the name, its not as masculine as it sounds, no leather, maybe a hint of wood ( IMO these are masculine scents). Nothing special, but a decent middle of the ground gym bag frag. This is my opinion, i hope you enjoy.
