Believe it or not, this frag smells pretty good. Coming from Everlast, you would expect it to smell like a gym locker or something. This frag is kind of sweet, slightly woody and not cloying at all. The initial spray reminded me of Gucci Guilty. The projection and longevity is a little below average. Overall, this one is worth it's weight for the price.

Rated #465 in Fragrances
For an inexpensive scent it's surprisingly very good. Fresh, spicy with a gorgeous sillage. Lasts a while too. Lovely!
This is good, really good, far superior to scents many times its price. I tried it based on reviews herein, with a large dollop of scepticism, but the positive reviews are fully justified. To me it's quite an old school type scent, very citric opening, a little sweet, evolving to a musky leathery base. Very well blended, seamlessly moving from top to base, each stage enjoyable. The old saying "Never judge a book by its cover" never ringing truer, as the exterior belies the quality within. I'm now on my second bottle, having spent less sthan 20 on both. Perhap not the most original, but in terms of VFM, this leads the way and I'll always have a bottle in my wardrobe.
The opening is somewhat interesting with its herbs and bright dissonant citrus, and Everlast's longevity is good. But I get a fruity aspect and metallic, synthetic florals in the heart that scream "cheap." The soft amber and musk in the drydown keep this one from being a total write-off, but I don't enjoy it.
On me, this is a very non-linear frag. The opening is a very sharp but pleasant citrus (probably just straight limonene) that I find refreshing, like a splash of 4711, but that zest is likewise really only cologne-like in duration. As that quickly tapers off, it reveals a mild and slightly powdery oriental base. The main notes I get are cinnamon, nutmeg and tonka. A lot of people say, too, "leather and musk." Probably, but those are broad and protean accords that I have a hard time putting a finger on. Longevity and projection are not great, but that's ok with me. I consider this a private frag, something I spritz on some evenings when I want to freshen up (the citrus) and then enjoy a little spice. Pleasant and a great value. Bonus review, from Chandler Burr: "An unlikely champ is the Everlast fragrance, from the boxing-supplies company. Initially it has a fresh citrus smell, giving the impression you've hit the showers. After a moment to settle in, it radiates a leather aroma. It's a traditional scent, and I would wear it in the office or ringside at the MGM Grand."
The bottle and spray nozzle are not particularly well constructed (I had one bottle where the nozzle broke off!) - but that aside, the comparisons of Everlast 1910 being a 'cheap' version of YSL's Opium are something I would agree with, which is not a bad thing. This lacks the ginger punch which Opium opens with, and has none of Opiums darker notes, but it covers your nostrils in a sweet-ish oriental spice blend, and is light on your skin, fresh, almost (sporty?) - and easy to wear. The last bottle I bought was £5 for 100ml (!!!!) - so this gets an A+ for value, and as a bargain gym bag / sweet cum fresh oriental scent - it's definitely recommended!
Opens with stinging notes of wood and leather, distinctly pine cleanser! This dries down to an amber and lilac middle that retains that cheap cleanser fragrance within it's muddled cacophany. Entire thing breaks down quickly and unceremoniously making for a mercifully short longevity. Wretched foulness in a cheap and unsophisticated EDT.
Good for someone who doesn't know any better or on a budget. Smells like Opium PH. Average longevity.
Here's the note pyramid for this one. Top Notes: Lime, Lavender, Mardarin Orange, Mint, and Grapefruit. Heart: Nutmeg, Cypress, Cinnamon, Tarragon, and Geranium. Base: Leather, Tonka Bean, Patchouli, Musk, and Guaiac Wood. Out of these I mainly smell the leather and musk. I don't get anything but lavender in the opening. There are hints of the other notes but besides the ones I've mentioned cinnamon seems to stand out. Really nice fragrance and you could do a lot worse and spend 5 times the money. Giving this one a B.
Everlast Original 1910 is certainly NOT a sporty scent, as other reviewers here have pointed out! It's more of a syrupy/spicy fragrance with prominent spices and clove in the drydown. While it is a bit similar to Opium Pour Homme, I find it leagues better than Opium, which is gnawing and cloying and a lot of other unpleasant things. Lasts a while and projects well - great for the price!
