  3. Re: Name the fragrance you tried/smelled today for the first time.

    I think it's maybe somewhere inbetween. There is a lot of love but also a lot of hate. Not much inbetween . It has an average rating of 3.6 which is the same as Sauvage. I think that says a lot.
  4. Re: Name the fragrance you tried/smelled today for the first time.
