B*Men is a very slightly tart and woody rhubarb that's light enough to be worn in the summer, but shines brightest in the fall weather paired with a nice warm sweater. Testing blind I'd never make the connection to A*Men or the other flankers that followed, this seems like something completely different (and much more up my alley).
I get no tobacco from it whatsoever, but if you'd be interested in Poe's Lavender Bath Salts then go for it!
Extremely smoke-heavy; the coconut/tea base is wonderful but it's more or less drowned out by a bonfire-style smoke note.
A little bit too earthy for my tastes, but the amber and blood orange notes are wonderful.
I really couldn't tell the difference between this and the original Cool Water unless I tried them at the same time, but the frosted glass on the bottle felt good, at least. Not worth going out of your way to find, but a solid scent.
To me, Brut Revolution is just a slightly soapier clone of Acqua Di Gio without much silage or lasting power. If you like the smell of AdG but don't want to spend much on something that completely blends in with the crowd, this is one step above a gas station "InStyle" version. The bottle's kind of neat, too.
Notes: Woods, Patchouli, Black Pepper, Musk, Moss
Very reminiscent of Kenneth Cole Reaction, only replacing the apple with grapefruit and improving both the longevity and projection of the scent. Watermelon notes are a personal favorite of mine, and Game accents it with wonderful grapefruit and verbena leaf/lemon notes.
Cool Water Deep is my current casual favorite, it has great longetivity and the cactus sap really stands out as something out of the ordinary, but not flagrantly so. I really don't see the Cool Water + Acqua Di Gio or Polo Blue similarities, there's not the busy chaos of Cool Water, the citrus edge of AdG, or the cucumber note of Polo Blue.
As soon as I sampled Grey Flannel at a JC Penny's, I immediately found and bought a mini of it to clear out my sinuses when congested, and it works better than any Nasonex spray that you can find. Far too overpowering for me to wear, big thumbs down.
I picked this up blind at TJ Maxx for eight dollars, just because I heard good things about it. Unfortunately, when I wore it to work the next day, at lunch several people were wondering who took up smoking, because something "smelled like an ashtray". After that, I haven't really worn it out, just because of the negative response to the strong tobacco vibe.
It's a cheaper version of basically the same juice as Le Male, but if you didn't really like Le Male, don't go out of your way to find Cuba Gold.
It may just be my body chemistry, but this reminds me of candle wax, nothing more and nothing less. I love some of Coty's other stuff, like Gravity and Aspen, but this is just a poor offering.
