      At least they didn't say noir!

      The more cynical man would suspect SA's will be told to promote the notes of guarana and absinthe to appeal to the masses.

      Not me, of course ;)

      I am, however, interested to see how the green mandarin fits into the mix. It would be nice if it's prominent, but it wouldn't fit in with the rest of the notes.

      I'll give it a try, but I don't hold out high hopes.

      Sniffed this at Von Maur today. For some reason, it reminded me of root beer.

      I don't see the connection with "dark obsession" as it relates to pretty, androgynous, hairless boys. Maybe they are downplaying the masculinity of the scent ... or they are marketing it to women.
