Same opening as the original - classic citrus. After that is when the show really starts - dirty, earthy, dark, scratchy vetiver (that is the dominant note to my nose).I can also smell patchouli in the drydown though its very subtle. Highly recommended as a day/office scent all year round.
Lasts about 8 hours with moderate projection.
Very refreshing, very soapy. To me the Geranium/Verbena combo is dominating throughout the whole life of the fragrance. The Tolu balm is difficult to enjoy as it only comes out in the drydown - when the fragrance is very close to the skin. Overall quality summer scent for those guys who are not afraid of flowers (for bargain bin price!).

Strong, green well balanced and def. unisex citrus. Very outdoorsy. Best thing about it is the apothecary bottle. Can work well for the office but imho it is best for outdoor activities - walking your dog in the park etc. Longevity and projection 3/5. It lasts on me for about 4-6 hours with 4 sprays. Highly non-offensive.
Grapefruit orange ruggedness. Absolute Superhero scent. Not too many of them like this out there nowadays. However would not wear this to work - its drity, earthy side might make it boarder line offensive to some people.
