I could care less for it. All the raving.. just overhyped a pretty basic and generic fragrance imo. I get a grapeish accord in the opening similar to Polo Sports or even Swiss Army, but more laid back. Along with the pepper note; definitely not a black pepper, more of a synthetic green pepper. Vetiver and patchouli appear to me in the middle more than the dry down. I haven't tried many from Chanel, but this one certainly isn't a great icebreaker for a noob to their house. Chanel No 5 for women is a gorgeous fragrance that screams "high quality" while this stuff just smells cheap for the most part. No disrespect to those who say that this is a fragrance that comes at you from all directions, it smells a little like this and a little like that.. Ya, I just don't see it at all. Not horrible, just not worth all the love it gets.
