Looking at other reviews I really do wonder if we're all smelling the same scent. For me I find it has a brief burst of floral that's a bit soapy when first applied, it reminds me of bubble bath. It quickly fades and mellows to a warm creamy scent, a touch of musk and vanilla and the barest hint of spice. It would be very nice if it actually held up but I find it doesn't linger, after an hour I have to nearly put my nose to my skin to smell it.
Amazing what one can do with cheap musk and denatured alcohol -- one can almost make it resemble perfume.
This one isn't my first choice, but for some reason many men love this. Just for that reason I wear it. Nice & very musky
