Don't judge a book by its cover or so the advice goes. Similarly, don't judge a fragrance by its bottle. Nor the name it is marketed under for that matter. Well, for once I didn't listen to that advice. How could I? I could forgive Sean John's Unforgivable rip off act for its excellent reproduction of a great scent. But USHER is just 'bland' when it has no right to be and shares nothing remotely in common with its celebrity namesake. I get the uneasy feeling that a chunk of the investment behind this insipid mess went to the celebrity first, the bottle designer next and whatever was left to the perfumer. In fact if you were to ask Usher to sample this scent, don't be surprised if he goes, "What the **** ?" This one sucks, brutha!
