Heat? Or Heat Rush? (I almost typed Heat Rash, too.)
Heat supposedly is a vanilla-y fragrance. Heat Rush (oh, 'gotta be careful typing this one. . .) has more of a fruity citrusy opening. But I agree, there's something cloyingly metallic in it after a while.
My first thought on spritzing on paper was that it smelled citrusy -- oranges. I thought, well, maybe that's because the bottle is orange, and I'm succumbing to marketing influences. But no, it smells like fruit. I didn't test it on skin, just paper. The next day (yes, over 24 hours later), the paper was on my desk, and it was annoying the heck out of me. The citrus smell lingers, and it smells very sharp/acrid the next day.

That I totally agree with.
I thought the bottle was kind of cute. The complete opposite of the original bottles of Havana by Aramis, being as Heat and Heat Rush are bottom heavy, and therefore very stable. But yeah, the drawback is that it may be hard to hold.
