    Many reviewers of RMW point out that it has very poor longevity and vanishes into the air after a couple of hours.
    Is it really the case?
  7. Re: What is the official fragrance of a young professional?

    In my opinion, Sartorial has sort of old vibe which is not in line with young generation. Sartorial is more appropriate for an older gentleman from 35-40 years old.
