Ehhh....I don't know. It's clean. It's soapy. It's light. It smells kind of like laundry. But it also ventures a little too far into "your grandma's fancy soap" territory for my liking. There's a bit of a headache-inducing quality to it. And it also reminds me of a Glade bathroom spray, it could be called "Spring Linen," or something like that. For a clean, soapy scent I prefer Mugler Cologne which I believe has more body, more character, and ultimately smells better. There's some Gendarme that I'm always hearing great things about, but I don't think it can be this one. Maybe it's Gendarme V, or 20 that gets it right, because Gendarme by Gendarme just doesn't deserve all this praise.
