    Black Suede by Avon

    This is the epitome of cheap cologne.

    It is a cheap woodsy knockoff of Aramis and Egoiste. You are better off saving your money and getting the real deal. Also, it is very powdery. There is a strong note that is similar to talcum powder. It smells like a dirty diaper.

    Sure, some people will like it. But most people won't. This has strong projection, which is not good for the people around you who will not like it.

    If you are starting out, there is a chance you may like this, but if you are a serious collector or have tried many woodsy fragrances, you should pass on this because there are just so many other options.


    Verdict: Go buy yourself Aramis or Egoiste instead.
