This seems like a well-executed joining Jazz and Quorum, as aspects of it bring to my mind both of these at various points while wearing it.
There have been many comments about a synthetic note in this, but after a few hours I am deciding this might be a light flower note (is this the laurel?) -- so light as to be missed by some or sensed as something synthetic. I don't think it is synthetic, and I also do not get the cigarette note some have mentioned.
This is a very good fragrance, and not controversial as long as it is used judiciously (as with any fragrance).
