I also got a sample of this one and was also taken for surprise - a very nice fragrance! The balance in the formula is very nicely done. I like the fresh green aromatic opening notes but was really knocked over by the incredible progression from green freshness to rugged leather in the drydown. To me it starts out a bit like Uomo from Villoresi but a couple hours later dries down more like a Cuiron leather. I need to try this one again but, I can confirm it is a very nice one. Only problem is the price is kind of out of line, but that is consistent with Micallef prices in general.
