I like EdB and I wear it (I'm wearing it today.) It's potent, long-lasting, attractive, and, as everyone has pointed out, dirt cheap. These are all admirable qualities.
With that said, I think it's more of an air freshener than a perfume. It's not something that you wear, it's something that emits from you, quite unchanged, whether it's on skin or fabric or just sprayed on the couch. Smells the same on everyone. While it doesn't lack richness, it does, IMO, lack subtlety and gracefulness. If it were a man, he would be good-looking, have perfect teeth, dress head to toe in Eddie Bauer, and he would laugh at everyone's jokes even though he doesn't understand a single one of them. It's more friendly and hearty and appealing-to-everyone than any other scent in my wardrobe and absolutely the perfect thing to wear to holiday parties. But the instant I want mystery or intelligence, I look elsewhere.
