I sampled it a while back, and it left me wondering what has happend to CDG. Not that it is a bad scent. But the later releases aren't comparable to CDG's earlier releases, let alone the exuberant price tags. Even the highly touted Hinoki, while reasonably good, doesn't compare in quality to an earlier release like CDG 2 Man. Give me CDG 2 over Stephen Jones anyday for half the price and double the volume.
