    Default Great budget line: Zen for Men

    Hey guys -- has anyone tried this Zen for Men line? It is a branch of Enchanted Meadow, a Canadian company. They have unusual product placement, locating their merch in flower shops, nurseries... a bit off the beaten track.
    In my opinion $27 for a 100 ml scent is a budget price, but I find they are of very decent quality.
    Cypress Yuzu and Fig leaf and Lime .
    In each case, I'd say that the citrus notes are very fresh, smell great, and have good longevity.
    The cypress arguably is woody and the fig leaf is green -- in other words, a generic rather than really distinctive character.
    But for the price I think it is a good job.
    And the Cypress comes in aftershave balm, body lotion, a very nice glycerine soap, and shower gel. You don't often see that kind of product range these days.
    Attractive, Japanese-style packaging as well.
    Seems like a no-brainer to me. Would be a nice gift to someone starting out in the fragrance enjoyment field.

    Reactions???

    I found this line on local internet seller's clearance section. Scent 15$/100ml, soap 4$/130g and aftershave balm 8.5$/250ml. Not a bad deal, I think I should try aftershave balm. Does both scents have citrus notes?

    Interesting. Never heard of this line before.

    Yes, both have citrus notes. The yuzu is a type of citrus, I think. As I said, these are not profound but they are very pleasant and good value.

    It seems Yuzu and Lime scent are already sold out some time ago and only "Chai" scent remains, which have notes of cardamon, ginger and fennel. Should I expect sweet Burberry london for men here?
