Pros: Unique harmony of masculine fragrance
Cons: No projection, definitely skin scent & short longevity.
It starts with a smoky burst of wood (cedar, perhaps?) and crisp mandarin sneaking within. As seconds ticking, I get some feel of oak and leather as I long for heavy oud aroma that defines its masculinity.
My conclusion, this isn't a fragrance for picking out clear notes. It's better to be appreciated as an harmonious ensemble of masculinity. It definitely captures the woody & smoky feel, enriched by a sense of cedar.
Cons are the projection, and definitely a serious matter of longevity. It's only skin scent for me. Aside that, this fragrance undeniably masculine, sexy and most definitely strong enough to make an impression. It is a very safe bet to show some manly charm. Score? 7.5/10.
