To put it simply...
L'Occitane Eau des Baux with a (more) woody base.
The kind of wood smell that brings to mind new furniture, or a newly laid wooden floor. I guess that clean wood smell (varnished wood?) from oud, if you will.
A fruity + jasmine (indolic) + barnyard smell. Excellent stuff.
I first put it on, I found it okay.
BUT!.. shortly after, wow! Awesome fragrance, and I was sold based on the sample. Got a full bottle shortly after.
Probably my favorite Xerjoff so far.
So, I got a bottle of this recently. Yeah, this is basically Shalimar EdP. Except this seemed sweeter to me, and it may have better performance (don't quote me on that!).
Supposedly this is a 20% concentration as well.
I sold my bottle. Don't get me wrong, this is good stuff! It's just that I already own Shalimar EdP.
Having said that... based on the smell, I may actually like this BETTER than my Shalimar (don't hurt me!). But, I have to stick to the OG Guerlain, know what I mean?
Thumbs up! Definitely recommend if you're looking for something like Shalimar!
Excellent fragrance. I bought it in the beginning (or so) of the hype for a less than retail price.
Totally worth it! It's an excellent sweet fragrance. If you're not a big fan of sweet fragrances, then avoid this.
It's basically a honeyed tobacco fragrance - full stop.
Reminds me of by Kilian's Back to Black, but perhaps not as 'baby powder-y' as the by Kilian.
If you're a fan of Tobacco Vanille & Back to Black, then check this one out.
Highly recommended! Even if it doesn't seem like your thing, I still suggest checking it out!
p.s. It appears to be perfume strength; it simply says 'PERFUME'. No water appears in the ingredient listing, so this may be perfume/extrait strength.
To me this basically smells like a honeyed Obsession for Men, specifically, from my experience. Even before I sprayed it I thought of Obsession for Men because of the color of the juice! Mine is an Interparfums version (post-Coty).
If you like Obsession for Men, you'll maybe like this one. If you already own one of these, you may find the other redundant, I don't know. Good luck! :)
Hm.. I don't know, I thought of pickles and caramel.. granted I haven't had it on long and I may update this at a later time.
So far, it doesn't really smell like something I'd want to smell like.
Though the very beginning did smell nicer to me, somewhat reminiscent of I LOVE NEW YORK for Him?
This scent to me from what I've smelled seems to have the bergamot orange scent as the main player. A hint of mint(?), and citrusy (but not a whole lot). It seems like a pretty mellow scent to me. Might not seem like a buy to me, unless the price was pretty good. Not a "wow!" scent, but it's not horrible/bad. Thus far it's basically like a constant mellow scent bergamot, but with not a lot of citrus bite. Kind of smells like an *almost* ripe banana with some green still on it.
