    XS is not bad but I find that it smells rather generic towards the end. If u already own Chanel Platinum Egoiste or CK Eternity, you might want to reconsider buying XS as they smell quite similar.

    Look for XS Extreme (with the bronze cap)
    It has the XS fragrance base with ripe berry-like accords at the top, woody mids and bitter leather in the background.

    To me, it's a very smooth and crisp Mediterranean frag, very youthful and wearable

    XS is so good, that it would appear that Creed made something quite similar in effect to it called Himalaya.

    I have both, and in straight comparison of sprays on each hand, one can tell the difference between them. But in the actual wearing during the day, the difference is harder to tell.

    I tried the Extreme version a long time ago, and at that time preferred the regular version.

    I agree

    XS is the only fragrance that I can comfortably wear to the gym.

    I like it and use it, 3.5/5 star fragrance for me. Pretty versatile!

    I like it a lot, but I find it quite generic: there are niche (Creed's Himalaya), designer (CK Eternity and Chanel's Egöiste Platinum) drugstore (a local once: Cannon's Alliance) and knock-offs (RR Excesos, among thousands) scents with analogous compositions. Based on this, and if you can, I would follow Manuel's suggestion and look after XS Extreme.
