Aqua di gio clone! And a spot on perfect match at that. In fact I like the longevity and Sillage better on cubano bronze. I doubt I'll ver buy another bottle of aqua di gio, with his around. Got a 4.2 oz bottle for 10-11 dollars online. And it has the identical frag of something 4-5 times as much. Plus better longevity. It's a no brainer. If you love ADG you should already be ordering a bottle of this as we speak.

First: love the bottle. This juice got a simply but chic bottle that matches the style of the cologne.

Smells nothing like the original black suede. No powdery note. I like the original black suede but it is a very old school scent. Black suede leather is very modern. Clean. Fresh. I sprayed Cuba wild heart, and Ed hardy's love and luck, and especially on dry down these smell almost identical to black suede leather. BSL is just slightly "less sweet" than the other two. But has the same semi-modern fresh designer scent. It is a wonderful scent especially for a younger guy. My wife loves it. Smells very expensive. Sillage is average, as is longevity. But at $10 a bottle, it's a steal. Not sure why it's not more popular. If more people knew it was so good, it wouldn't be so unknown. No one will smell this and ever think its an Avon frag. They'll easily think you spent 4-5x the price tag. Smells classy.

All I can say is...this scent is BOMB! Seriously it is amazing. Manly, sophisticated, did I mention manly? You have to be a large and in charge confident PLAYA to wear this. And I love it. One spray, and I'm good allllll day. (One right to the chest after a morning shower) Even under my undershirt, and suit, it wafts through all day. Very refined. I'm in 30's and just started getting into frags after a long hiatus. Wore some in high school, early 20's. My fragrance decade was the 90's (mostly Calvien Klien stuff...light clean scents). But this stuff is OLD SCHOOL. Like when I was a new born baby old school, but I love it. My wife smelled it on me for the first time today. (Just got the bottle) and she kept saying (WHY DO YOU SMELL SO GOOD? MMMM) Let's just say it was the response I like. It's warm, green, musky, complex, smells like a real man's (little boys need not apply) all grown up, night on the town, Armani suit cologne. This is how you want to smell drinking cognac in a high class New York Lounge. At 10 bucks on Ebay, how on earth do they make something so amazingly high end, so inexpensively. This stuff just emanates class. If you want a "BIG BOY" fragrance, for evenings out, that won't break the bank but make you smell like you did. Get this one! REMEMBER 1 spray, only 1, straight on the chest right after showering, then put on your best finery, and prepare to be transported to "OLD WORLD CLASS." When men smelled like men, and not like they're sharing the same perfume as their girlfriend. I could go on at length about the notes. But your reading them up above. Every part of this is great, and the notes play through back and forth over the life of the scent, until it drys down to a great tangy leathery musk. If you could wear the scent of the leather seats of a vintage jaguar, the dry down on Quorum would be that scent. What are you waiting for...go buy a bottle. And know this... if you can't wear it, or don't like it, its not because you not a real man....why lie....yes it is....

I love all the cubano scents. Except this one. The best is Cubano Gold!!!!! Buy it now. A better version of JPG Le Male. I love it! Cubano Bronze - Is an aquatic, Aqua di Gio. Cubano Copper - Cool Water. If you like those frangrances, you will love the Cubano versions. They never smell cheap! They are awesome. But silver is horrid. Smells so cheap and synthetic to me. I sprayed on wrist, and it made me dizzy, after a few minutes. Never had that happen with any frangrance, no matter how strong it was until Cubanno Silver. And my wife detested it, when she smelled it. Get all the other Cubanos, but leave Silver where you found it. It is FOUL! It gets my lowest rating, right next to OLD SPICE.
