i broke down and purchased this today while in NY between meetings. i got a sample of this years ago and didnt like it much initially. over sveral months i continued chipping away at my sample and ended up LOVING it, but I never purchased it because I was afraid of smelling dated. i decided to make a quick stop to saks during lunch to check on blenheim b. which i had never tried before. it was meh. then in the corner if my eye I saw a tester bottle of satorial. I took a sniff an all the memories came back to me. i purchased it immediately, as in that moment i realized that i dont give a damn what other people think of this scent or that it smells vageuly like brut. ithink its absolutely amazing on me, especially in the dry down and thats all that matters. for those of you that have summarily dismissed this like i did, i urge you to try it again and let it evolve from start to finish then make a decision. this is one of theonly fragrances that I can say took me a while to "get", but once i got it, i GOT it.
