    So I would like to be completely sure if this NEW one is better than others Perry Ellis (that I always have found
    commun and cheap), before placing my online order at Macy´s.

    I think it is very nice. Not groundbreaking, but nice. Warm, woody, slightly sweet maybe with relations to Boss Bottled and Allure Homme. Whether or not it is worth the price? I cannot answer that. This may be my kick around, default office scent for fall and winter 2008. I haven't bought it yet, but I am considering it seriously. There is a floral heart to this one that makes it a bit interesting IMO. It won't get much love here; it is not revolutionary or from one of the annointed houses. But everyone needs a solid, no frills frag around that just says 'I smell nice', and everyone around you will think the same thing. Out of my collection of 15, this may become my 'no frills, I smell nice' frag for a bit. The longevity is quite good and it has a circular aura of mild, warm sillage that keeps you surrounded.

    So far, I have only seen it at Macys.

    Like Jock_With_Scents said, it is very nice but not groundbreaking. IMO it is one of the better designer releases this year, and it is much better then recent Perry Ellis releases.

    Do you not live near a Macy's where you can sample it. I also saw it at Boscovs (another department store).

    I picked this up a few weeks ago at Garden State Plaza in Jersey. I do like it but there is a synthetic note after initially spritzing that I do not like. I think I will layer this with my Bengal Black Musk oil.

    Best,

    I was almost going to start a new thread on this fragrance but I think it's effectively discussed here. I bought this yesterday and it lived up to my expectations and more. I've always felt Perry Ellis colognes don't get their due so it's good to see this one get positive feedback.

    To me there is no drawback with this one at all. I love the top, middle and base. Unlike many fragrances of recent years, this one really unfolds like the great ones are supposed to. The most pleasant surprise was the staying power. Usually the rule of thumb for me is the lighter the color, the less it will last. Not at all with PE 2008. I got a good 5 or 6 hours out of this, and my t-shirt retained the scent all day & evening. I can't stress enough are there are SO many colognes now that you're lucky to get 2 or 3 hours out of.

    I too got immediate compliments on day one. Wish I could say that with the others I own, though I won't turn on CPMC no matter what.

    BTW I noticed this is available at Dillard's as well. The store I went to had a broken, near empty bottle with no label on it. I get the feeling this is not pushed like it should be at stores. Good in the respect it won't become a "hipster" nightclub frag, but bad since I'd like to see it kick the 'Di Gios of the world in the a$$.

    PE White 360 is still the only Perry Ellis worth a smell IMO.
