Well, sorry to be a damp rag in an otherwise fairly enthusiastic gathering... but this I find this to be a rather lame spicy-aquatic fougere.
It is certainly quite sweet -- uggh.
Doesn't seem particularly masculine in style.
I view the "fern" note with lavender and woods as a reason to call it a fougere.
However, it certainly has a synthetic, aquatic-fresh note... perhaps suggesting the canals of Venice on a sunny day when the backwash is not too great.
Dry-down is amber-musky, hence some people think of it as an oriental.
Don't get much in the way of wood, perhaps a few molecules of a very sweet sandalwood.
I honestly don't know whence the kudos are here... it seems like a rather generic and low-rent sort of scent.
In sum: sweet, aquatic, ambery. I guess some like this style. I don't.
Discontinued -- in my opinion not worth a protracted search.
