I did mot like the INITIAL spray out of the bottle. It seems as if they somehow concentrated the fragrance into the bottle. After the drydown, beautiful. Its nice a quite powdery, but not too much. Sharply smooth. Distinctive. Iactually anly wear it if I am indeed wearing white. Yes, if you have Le Male, they are both quite similar, AND different. This is a fragrance that one CANNOT overspray. Trust me.
