    Nothing special

    It is mainly citrus and lavender on my skin, witha floral drydown and a touch of soapiness in the base. Not bad, but nothing remarkable either. It lasts nearly three hours.

    This is certainly a bargain fragrance compared to many other English colognes. 74 is sufficiently stuffy and musty with a little English sensibility. It opens with a hint of citrus and aromatic “baby oil” accord like in Hammam Bouquet (which I personally believe TOBS tried to imitate with this fragrance sans rose). It progresses to an indolent jasmine, iris, muguet, and other powdery florals. The base is a little disturbing and far too powdery for wear any time other than winter.
