I like the fragrance. I would hate to use a comparission to Paco Rabanne 1 Million. I just find that one far too sweet and fruity. Coincidently enough, 2 young ladies for talking to each other in another shop and I overheard one of them say how much they loved 1 Million ( she called it Paco Rabanne 1 in a Million
). So if you like girls, this is your scent I guess.
I agree with Sandy, it does indeed have a better characteristic than most new releases. Is it "stop me in my tracks" amazing ? No, but it is nice and I would rather smell this in public than many other fragrances.
VanAllan seems to have a good handle on the notes. It ends up being a restrained sweet woodsy scent. I am terrible at the notes and accords, so I am glad he posted here before me. Fan di Fendi pour Homme seems to always be easy going, restrained, but smells nice. Even the opening is very calm, but nice. Well done spice in here.
The problem with these dept store fragrances is that they are quite pricey. I am not sure what the price on this one was, but I would imagine it would be in Spicebomb's price range ( $90 ?). But who knows. No matter what the fragrance, you want good value for your money. We all need those day to day fragrances, because sometimes we can't drain the juice level from all out discontinued fragrances. At least I can't, so I will give this a shot on skin and see its potential.
