Pros: Great scent that sells for peanuts. One of the best values in the market
Cons: Can't think on any
This is a classic scent that will be enjoyed for many, many years.
A typical powerhouse, may not be liked by wimps. It is an ubermacho scent built in the classic chypre structure, that is, a citric opening, patchouli heart and oakmoss base.
What makes this perfume different are the modifier notes, the cinnamon and cypress notes impart an unusual accord that is very unique, The leather, even a common modifier for chypre type perfumes is very well done. The jasmine and gardenia in the heart gives a nice floral contrast to the dry, dirty patchouli, and the benzoin/tonka accord complements the oakmoss base very nicely. This is a very complex perfume and there are even more modifiers than I mention, however as complex as it is, it is very well balanced and shows quality galore,
Now, the cherry on the top is that this fragrance can be found at discount stores for less than you'll pay for a supersized MacDonald's combo. Indubitably one of the best values in the market.
I like Halston 1-12 a little better than Z-14, and both Halston twins are winners in my book.
Warning: Do not try if you are a rookie in the perfume experience, you like aquatics or you are a wimp.
