This doesn't smell like tar to me at all; it smells like rubber - specifically, the rubber valve used to blow up flotation toys for the pool. Further in, it begins to smell more like the surface of the flotation toy or a pair of heavy duty grippy rubber work gloves. Either way -- rubber or tar -- I don't want to smell like this. I find it interesting but not bottle-worthy. Longevity and sillage are below average on me (both 2 on a 1-5 scale).

Disappointing. Others before me have already described this juice well; I also give it a thumbs-up on its own merits. My "meh" rating is based on the sole aspect that the new juice is a copy of a copy of a copy of itself (current stock is a reformulation according to reliable sources). Meaning, all the components of the original seem to still be there but it feels diluted compared to the vintage formula*. Specifically, the "headiness" mentioned on C&Ss website in its description is considerably diminished. The heady effect becomes most apparent late in the drydown but again, it is a fraction of its former self. In the vintage version, the effect was CLEARLY noticeable within about 15 minutes and it lasted throughout most of the drydown.

Rose, citrus, sandalwood, fire & brimstone...magnificent. It fits Ozzy Osbourne perfectly. This is what I would imagine he'd smell like. Me? I can't possibly wear this stuff. I don't have the attitude, presence, or (clothing) wardrobe to do it justice. It's just too wicked.

Excellent, light, causual. My very first impression was "melon" - watermellon or honeydew. This is Acqua di Gio with a little black pepper cracked on top. Dries to a nice woody flavor. Good for summer, office. Not a big fan of the name though.
