    Would I be wrong in saying that it is a cross between Boss Bottled and La nuit ?
    My nose is not that educated

    I actually really like this one. Creamy hazlenut fig and mandarin...with musky drydown... very well done for a clothing retailer. Interparfums owns the license for BR and they have done well for them. This is definitely full bottle worthy

    Very, very light on my skin but another good scent from Banana Republic. Black Walnut is better to me as well, and Cordovan is right up there too.

    This fragrance stood out to me out of the rest. Although not much sillage, still a strong, deep masculine scent. Semi-sweet in nature. It's fairly cheap, and I think I might pick it up.

    I like Black Walnut, Cordovan, and Slate better. I have a small travel bottle and haven't really been used it much. I may try it again.

    I felt like it was a fruitier, more modern version of Black Walnut. OK, but no fireworks.

    I liked it either. Subtly sweet.
