I use to appreciate the " Bvlgarians" but this one smells exactly as a plastic-metallic white musky fragrance in the same vein of the better appointed Salvatore Ferragamo Pour Homme and Costume National Homme. The starting is citrusy in a tart, synthetical and dissonant way. The link between violet and aquatic flowers blossom smells strangely artificial, as a sort of liquid detergent, and a bit plastic. This is the worst part of the juice which fortunately goes fastly to lose a part of its artificiality in order to become a soft milky and honeyed musky white concoction mild of woods and with the rooty undertone of vetiver. The note of amber seems to be dry ambergris in order to enhance the masculinity while keeping under control the mellifluence otherwise too high because of the honey and benzoin. In this phase the fragrance is more appreciable but lacks of any beat of originality flowing in the air without carring any additional valor to the worldwide parfumery. The longevity is in the average for this fragrance close to skin.
