This commercially successful fragrance has garnered a lot of attention on Basenotes, both positive and negative; much of it seems to be hyperbole, reflecting attitudes to the Creed house in general. Anyway, I would say it is a very competently constructed fragrance characterised chiefly by appealing fruity (apple/pineapple) notes, on a background of smoke, leather and patchouli. It has great sillage and longevity. I use 3 to 4 sprays and get over 8 non-cloying hours out of it. I like it because it means I can wear a pleasing, predominantly non-citrus fruit-based scent without smelling like a teenage girl. I have come across nothing similar; it has its place in a varied wardrobe, although I would tire of it if worn every day.
