A masterpiece and unique fragrance in my opinion for spring and fall but definitely you can wear it all year around. The opening is strong and a little harsh mint note mixed with some vetiver and only hint of sweetness. the mint here isn't fresh and cooling, it's peppery and leafy, like mint leafs. In the dry down the mint is still there, strong with hint of floral notes and a little more sweetness from vanilla. the mint note make this fragrance different from so many fragrances out there and dominate through the whole fragrance life. other notes are in the background, but they're playing their role very well. so if you don't like mint, don't go for it. Some guys say smell like tooth paste but I'm not agree with them at all! As I said it's very unique, pleasant, elegant with great quality. The projection is incredible and longevity is great. One of my personal favorites.
