    Hey Dimitrios,

    Truthfully, I do not know if I have ever seen it - or if I have did not pay attention to it.

    I see the self-titled PS cologne all of the time at department stores like Macys and discount stores like Marshalls and TJ Maxx.

    I will have to look more closely for Onyx next time I am out shopping.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    I have not seen it either.

    Doing a little research, I see that it's called PS Onyx. There's also Onyx by Azzaro (in North American markets). Looks like it's worth a blind buy, actually, but I'm so "backlogged" sampling stuff that I'll hold off on it for the time being.

    I had no idea what was being talked about until I saw the bottle. There arent many scents I love but I can tolerate most scents, even Kouros. I had a viscous flashback after seeing the Onyx bottle. Its one of the only scents that made me go STRAIGHT home and shower after trying it. Loud artificial in your face with a cheap vanilla. No offense to anyone (hey I genuinely like Jovan Sex Appeal talk about trash) but this diddy was a nightmare to my nose.

    Cheers,

    Why not get a sample? Is it discontinued?

    "Onyx is definitely a spin-off of Body Kouros and Rochas Man, but with a nice carbonated vanilla fizz on top of the smooth, creamy scent. My most versatile cologne, which my wife calls SEXY! I love it. If you're into mixing fragrances, this one is compatible with almost any cologne.", taken from http://www.perfumeemporium.com/mens-...0/PS-Onyx.html

    "Reminds me a little of John Varvatos & Sexual. Pretty good fragrance that dries down really well and lasts.", taken from http://www.fragrancenet.com/paul-seb...6?cur_letter=P

    Also from FraganceNet:

    scent strength: intense
    scent life: 16+ hours

    No similarities to SMW to my nose. Not at all.
    Maybe I missed a slight similarity in the first burst of topnotes, but I doubt it.

    To me, that waxy(gris?) musk base and combination of other notes in PS Onyx remind me of a less masterful Himalaya. Still I liked it, but smelled slightly too formal/old for me to keep.
